Continuity Tester - is an item of electrical test equipment used to determine if an electrical path can be established between two points; that is if an electrical circuit can be made. 13. Category 5e/6 Cable - is a twisted pair cable for carrying signals/ is a standardized cable for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the
What is the WO, and what is its purpose? Workstation or Work Area Outlet – Also called the TO (Telecommunications Outlet), it’s used to connect devices to the cable plant. The cable type typically used is CAT3, CAT5, CAT5e, CAT6, CAT6A, and various coaxial cables. Devices typically connected to these outlets are PCs, printers, servers, phones, televisions,
Connectors - a pointer or link between two data structures Conduit - a tube or trough for protecting electric wiring Racks - framework, typically with rails, bars, hooks, or pegs, for holding or storing things. Punch-Down Blocks- is a type of electrical connection often used in telephony. Consolidation Points- Location where disparate consignments are collected to be shipped together to their final destination. Crimpers- To press or pinch into small regular folds or ridges Fish Tape- is a tool used by electricians to route new wiring through walls and electrical conduit. Cable Toner- device that ensures electricity is going where it needs, and isn't being lost in an unintended place Continuity Tester- tests if two cables can be connected to form a complete circuit Category 5e/6 cable- is a standardized cable for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physical layers that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards Binder Groups- Cable pairs are typically arranged under the cable sheath in binder groups Hybrid/ Composite Cable- An assembly of two or more cables (of the same or different types or categories) covered by one overall sheath/ An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector or cinch connector, is a type of electrical connector commonly
Determine the direction that current will flow in the circuit by noting which terminal of the battery is connected to the top of the wire and which terminal is connected to the bottom of the bare copper wire. 3. It will be necessary to determine which needle of the magnetic compass is the north facing needle by bringing it away from the lab station. 4. Place the magnetic compass on the paper close to the bare
What are the four primary functions of hardware? Input Output Storage Processing 3. What are the 2 main input devices and 2 main output devices? Input: Keyboard and Mouse Output: Monitor and Printer 4. What 3 things do electronic hardware devices need in order to function?
Brian mentioned that Laramie creates insulated copper wires. It produces a wide variety of types and sizes of insulated copper wires that ranges from residential telephone and electrical wiring to high-voltage power cables. The production of these products is divided into three areas. These include residential products, industrial products, and special-order products. Production is done in batches.
Analog signals send out video, voice, data, or image information. Analog transmissions travel by way of carrier signals via Amplitude Modulation (AM) or Frequency Modulation (FM). Digital signals transfer data trough copper wires or optical fibers via electro-magnetic signaling. In today’s society, both analog and digital signaling is prevalent in various forms of communication; therefore, converting signals from analog to digital or vice versa is necessary. Encoding a signal for transmission permits the switching of an analog signal into a digital signal.
