Definitions for "Twisted-Pair Wire"
A cable composed of two small, insulated conductors twisted together. Because both wires have nearly equal exposure to any interference, unwanted noise is substantially reduced. Many buildings have existing twisted-pair wiring that can be used to send video, audio and data signals as part of a school security system.
A pair of wires that are twisted together and typically used in telephone and other communication lines. The two wires are used for transmitting and receiving signals, and the twisting of the two wires reduces induction between them.
