Electric, Computer & Process Control Cables - Fundamentals

Jurandir Primo, PE

Cabling network consists of various systems, containing any combination of electrical equipment, computers, printers, terminals, audio, visual display devices and telephones, interconnected by cables to transmit and receive power or information. Electric-power transmission is the bulk transfer of electrical energy, from generating power plants to electrical substations located near demand centers. The generating plants are connected to supply electric energy loads through long-distance transmission. The rapid industrialization after World War II made electrical transmission lines and grids a critical infrastructure item in most industrialized nations.

Structured cabling system is a wiring network that carries data, voice, multimedia, security, wireless connections, throughout a building or an industrial plant. The TIA/EIA-568B specifies several “categories” for both components and cables. Today, the most common application of wireless systems and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) have a large backbone connecting high-speed LANs. Optical fiber has been used to transmit voice, television and data signals by light waves, by means of thin and flexible wires, consisting of glass or plastic. Fieldbus is the name of a family of industrial computer network protocols used for a real-time distributed control, standardized today, as IEC 61158.
