Define the following terms and list their purposes:
TMGB: Telecommunications Main Ground Busbar - central attachment point for the TBB.
TGB: Telecommunications Grounding Busbar - grounding connection point for telecomm systems in area.
TBB: Telecommmunications Bonding Backbone - conductor interconnects all TGB's with TMGB
GE: Grounding Equalizer - interconnects elements of telecom grounding infrastructure.
Bonding Conductor: provide the low-impedance fault-current path to the electrical supply source
What do the following standards cover?
ANSI/TIA/EIA-570-B - Residential telecommunications
ANSI/TIA/EIA-606-A - Administration
ANSI/TIA/EIA-607 - Grounding and Bonding
Describe the two grades of residential cabling
Coax and Cat 5E
List and describe the four TIA/EIA pathways and spaces separate classes of administration
Class 1 - addresses the administration needs of a premise that is served by a single equip. room
Class 2 - provides for the telecommunications infrastructure administration needs of a single
building or of a tenant that is served by a single or multiple telecommunications spaces (e.g., an ER with one or more TRs) within a single building.
Class 3 - addresses the needs of a campus, including its buildings and outside plant elements.
Class 4 - addresses the needs of a multi-site/campus
Both ends of horizontal cable shall be labeled within how far from each other?
List the four minimum locations to be wired within each residence:
kitchen, bedroom, family room, den
What is the difference between grounded and bonded?
Grounded: connects to ground or to a conductive body that extends the ground connection.
Bonded: connects to an established electrically conductive path to ensure electrical
continuity and capacity
When wiring residential communication systems, what are the tip and ring colors for pair 1 and 2 (quad telephone wire)?
1. Tip - Green Ring - Red
2. Tip - Black Ring - Yellow
Where is the communications utility drop wire terminated?
Residential: NID Commercial: Entrance Facility
What is the maximum distance that you can run a #6 AWG bonding conductor?
