Is there any reason why one would want stranded wire over solid, other than flexibility?

Stranded wire holds up better to repeated bending, as well as generally being more flexible. In the world of networks though it cannot be used at the maximum lengths that solid wire can.

We have lots of people asking about CATx solutions for console connectivity applications; let's consolidate them here. 


Hi Doug,

Don't know if this is what you had in mind, but I put together a workshop for our local AES Section in June where we did as thorough a job as we could looking at this subject, although in hindsight we left out a few things.

There are a lot of downloads, as well as a fairly thorough summary of what we did. You can even listen to a recording of the day, and look at the Powerpoint that Steve Lampen presented, as well as some other pics.

Thanks,
Dan
