|The ratio of the density (mass per unit volume) of a material to that of water
|Specific Inductive Capacity (S.I.C.)
|See definition for "Dielectric Constant"
|A type of shield made up of single strands of wires spirally wrapped around a conductor or cable core, more flexible and easier to terminate than woven braid. Typically has a nominal coverage of 95% to 98%.
|The helical wrap of a material over a core
|The difference between the percentage power factor at 80 volts/mil and at 40 volts/mil measured on wire immersed in water at 75C for a specified time
|The stationary pattern of waves produced by two waves of the same frequency traveling in opposite directions on the same transmission line
|Standing Wave Ratio (SWR)
|The ratio of the maximum amplitude to the minimum amplitude of a standing wave (stated in current or voltage amplitudes)
|Used to denote the environmental conditions of an installed cable rather than the conditions existing during cable installation
|A single uninsulated wire
|A conductor composed of individual groups of wires twisted together to form an entire unit
|The force required to remove a small section of insulating material from the conductor it covers
|Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR)
|A synthetic rubber that possesses excellent abrasion resistance electrical characteristics, decomposes when exposed to oil, ozone, and weather. Has an operating temperature range of -55°C to 90°C. Highly flammable unless flame retardants are added.
|Suggested Working Voltage
|AC voltage that can be applied between adjacent conductors
|The resistance of a material between two opposite sides of a unit square of its surface (usually expressed in ohms)
|A temporary and relatively large increase in the voltage or current in an electric circuit or cable (also called "transient")
|DuPont's trade name for their thermoplastic resin with ionic crosslinks`
|A method to determine the frequency response of a cable by generating an RF voltage whose frequency is varied at a rapid constant rate over a given range
|A cable used within and between the central office, main frames, and switchboard
