GLOSSARY OF TERMS | C-D
  A-B | C-D | E-H | I-R | S-Z
Cabling
The twisting together of two or more insulated conductors to form a cable.
Capacitance
The ability of a dielectric material between conductors to store electricity when a difference of potential exists between the conductors. The unit of measurement is the farad, which is the capacitance value that will store a charge of one coulomb when a one-volt potential difference exists between the conductors. In AC, on farad is the capacitance value that will permit one ampere of current when the voltage across the capacitor changes at a rate of one volt per second.
 Circuit (Electric)
The complete path of an electrical current. When the continuity is broken, it is called an open circuit; when continuity is maintained, it is called a closed circuit.
 Clamp
Permanent deformation of the insulation due to mechanical force or pressure (not due to heat softening).
Cold Flow
A standard system for designating wire diameter. Also referred to as the Brown and Sharpe (B&S) wire gauge.
Color Code
A system for circuit identifaction through use of solid colors and contrasting tracers.
Compound
An insulating or jacketing material made by mixing two or more ingredients.
Concentricity
In a wire or cable, the measurement of the location of the center of the conductor with respect to the geometric center of the surrounding insulation.
Conductor
An insulated wire suitable for carrying electrical current.
Contacts
The parts of the connector that actually carry the electrical current, and are touched together or spearated to control the flow.
 Continuity Check
A test to determine whether electrical current flows continuously throughout the length of a single wire or individual wires in a cable.
Cord
A flexible insulated wire.
Corona
Ionization of air surrounding a conductor caused by the influence of high voltage. Causes deteriorization of insulation materials.
Crazing
The minute cracks on the surface of plastic materials.
CSA
Abbreviation for Canadian Standards Assocation, a non-profit, independent organization that operates a listing service for electrical and electronic materials and equipment. The Canadian counterpart of the Underwriters Laboratories.
Current Carrying
Capacity
The maximum current an insulated conductor can safely carry without exceeding its unsulation and jacket temperature limitations.
