|Question: What is diameter of this 24AWG cable?|
|Answer: Its OD is 10.0mm.|
|Question: What is AWG?|
|Answer: AWG stands for "American Wire Gauge." It is the thickness of the wire inside the cable. The lower number AWG denotes thicker wiring and thicker overall cable. Thicker cables are recommended for longer cable runs because they offer less resistance along the signal path. |
|Question: What does the gold plating refer to?|
|Answer: Gold plating refers to the connectors. Gold plating provides resistance against corrosion that would otherwise impede signal transfer and could damage connections on equipment.|
|Question: What is the performance benefit of Tin and Silver Plating?|
|Answer: Tin and silver plating refer to plating on the copper wire conduits inside the cable. The plating is to control the "skin effect." The skin effect is the tendancy of digital signals to travel along the surface of a wire and be more suceptible to surface disipation. The plating is suppose to lock the signal in the copper core. |
Silver is a better conductor of electricity than tin and therefore offers better signal integrity.
|Question: These cables say "For In-Wall Use." Does that mean they can only be used in wall? |
What is CL2?
|Answer: "For In-Wall Use" refers to the CL2 rating these cables receive from Underwriters Laboratories (UL). It means that these cables have a slow burning outer jacket, should meet most fire codes and are safe for in-wall installations. |
The CL2 rating does not affect the appearance or performance of the cables. They can be used in or out of wall.
|Question: How do I know if I need male to male cables or male to female?|
|Answer: As a rule, consumer electronics devices ALWAYS have female ports on them. (a protruding male connector would break off too easily) So, for connecting two devices together, you need a male to male cable. |
Male to female cables are used to extend existing cables.
