Term Description
Cold Test Any test to determine the performance of cables during or after subjection to a specified low temperature for a specified time
Color Code A system for circuit identification through use of solid colors and contrasting tracers
Common Axis Cabling In multiple constructions, a twisting of all conductors about a "common axis" with two conductor groups selected as pairs. This practice yields smaller diameter constructions than a separate axis construction.
Common Mode (Noise), caused by a difference in "ground potential." By grounding at either end rather than both ends (usually grounded at source) one can reduce this interference.
Communications Cable UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) Standard 444; National Electrical Code (NEC) Article 800 of NFPA 70
Community Antenna Television Cable UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) Standard 1655; National Electrical Code (NEC) Article 820 of NFPA 70
Compact Stranded Conductor A unidirectional or conventional concentric conductor manufactured to a specified diameter, approximately 8 to 10% below the nominal diameter of a non-compact conductor of the same cross-sectional area
Compatibility The ability of dissimilar materials to exist in mutual proximity or contact without changing their physical or electrical properties
Composite Cable A cable consisting to two or more different types or sizes of wires
Compound An insulating or jacketing material made by mixing two or more ingredients
Concentric Stranding A central wire surrounded by one or more layers of helically wound strands in a fixed round geometric arrangement
Concentricity In a wire or cable, the measurement of the location of the center of the conductor with respect to the geometric center of the surrounding insulation
Conductance The ability of a conductor to carry electric current. It is the reciprocal of resistance and is measured in mhos.
Conductivity The capability of a material to carry electrical current - usually expressed as a percentage of copper conductivity (Copper being 100%).
Conductor An uninsulated wire suitable for carrying electrical current
Conductor Materials Materials used to create conductors; most commonly copper and aluminum
Conductor Stranding Composed of uninsulated strands twisted together. Types include solid conductor and stranded conductor.
Conduit A tube or trough in which insulation wire and cables are run
Conformitè Europèenne Indicates that a product complies with a European Directive
Connector A device used to physically and electrically connect two or more conductors
Contacts The parts of a connector which actually carry the electrical current, and are touched together or separated to control the flow
Continuity Check A test to determine whether electric current flows continuously throughout the length of a single wire in a cable or not
Continuous Vulcanization Simultaneous extrusion and vulcanization of rubber-like wire coating materials
Control and Instrumentation Cables CSA (Canadian Standards Association International) Standard C22.2 No. 239-97; Canadian Electrical Code, Part II
Control Cable A multi-conductor cable made for operation in control or signal circuits
Copolymer A polymer formed from two or more types of Monomer
Copper-Clad Steel with a coating of copper welded to it, as distinguished from copper-plated (same as Copperweld)
Copperweld The trade name of Flexo Wire Division (Copperweld Steel Corp.) for their copper-clad steel conductors
Cord A small, flexible insulated cable
Cord Sets and Power Supply Cords CSA (Canadian Standards Association International) Standard C22.2 No. 21; CSA Standard C22.2 No. 0; Canadian Electrical Code, Part II
