c - Abbreviation for centimeter. Also abbreviated cm.
C - Abbreviation for Centigrade. A scale for measuring temperature, water freezes at 0° C and boils at 100° C. See Celsius temperature scale.
C PE - Abbreviation for chlorinated polyethylene, a conductive polyethylene.
CABLE - a) A cable may be a small number of large conductors or a large number of small conductors, cabled together, usually color coded and with a protective jacket overall. b) A single conductor larger than 9 AWG.
CABLE ASSEMBLY - A cable assembly is a cable with plugs or connectors on each end for a specific pur- pose. It may be formed in various configurations.
CABLE CORE - The portion of an insulated cable lying under the protective covering or jacket.
CABLE FILLER - The material used in multi-conductor cables to occupy the spaces formed by the assembly of components thus forming a core of the desired shape (normally cylindrical).
CABLE PULLERS - A cable puller is a tool for pulling cables through a conduit made of metal, plastic, rubber, or Neoprene®. Neoprene® is a trademark of the DuPont de Nemours Co.
CABLE SHEATH - A cable sheath is a covering of rubber, Neoprene®, resin, or lead over a wire or cable core. Neoprene® is a trademark of the DuPont de Nemours Co.
CABLING FACTOR - Symbol K. A constant used in determining the approximate finished O.D. of an unshielded, unjacketed cable. D = Kd, where D is the diameter, K is the factor, and d is the diameter of one insulated conductor. A separate constant is used based on the number of conductors used (see Cable Design Formulas page 200).
CAD BR - Abbreviation for cadmium bronze.
CADMIUM - A bluish - white malleable ductile toxic bivalent metallic element used in protective platings and in bearing metals.
