Unscreened cables

UTP (unscreened twisted pair) cable is not surrounded by any screen.

The choice of screening is dependent on the environment where the cables are used and the applications they are required to run. For example, unscreened cables may be perfectly suitable for standard office applications, whereas screened cables may be preferred in industrial application or where higher performance transmission is required, or where data reliability and maximum throughput is paramount.

In all cases cables should be installed and terminated in accordance with internationally recognised standards.
