Term Main definition
Twisted pair
Two insulated copper wires twisted around each other to reduce induction (thus interference) from one wire to the other. The twists, or lays, are varied in length from pair to pair to reduce the potential for signal interference between pairs. Several sets of twisted-pair wires may be enclosed in a single cable. In cables greater than 25 pairs, the twisted pairs are grouped and bound together in groups of 25 pairs.
