EMF See definition of "Electromotive Force"
EMI Abbreviation for Electromagnetic Interference
Ends In braiding, the number of essentially parallel wires or threads on a carrier
Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) An ozone resistant rubber consisting primarily of ethylene propylene copolymer (EPM) or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EDPM)
Ethylene-Tetrafluorethylene-Copolymer (ETFE)
External Interference The effects of electrical waves or fields which cause sounds other than the desired signal (static).
Extrusion The process of continuously forcing both a plastic or elastomer and a conductor core through a die, thereby applying a continuous coating of insulation or jacket to the core or conductor
