What is low voltage wiring?
Low Voltage Wiring in a Nutshell
So, how does installation of structured cabling differ from installation of standard electrical cabling? Most wall of cable outlets run 120V or 240V of electricity. But low voltage wiring doesn’t carry the same current as the power outlets, fixtures and switches typically installed in homes. Low voltage wiring is designed to carry 50 volts of electricity or less. Common low voltages are 12V, 24V and 48V.
Low voltage wiring is often used for Smart doorbells, telephones, garage door opener controls, heating and cooling thermostats, landscape lighting, alarm system sensors and controls (security system cameras, motion sensors), audio-visual wiring (surround sound audio systems, cable television, intercom systems), internet network and Wi-Fi, and LED or low voltage lighting.
The infrastructure on which low voltage wiring operates is called structured cabling. A structured wiring system is built on a separate network from most of a home’s wiring. In most cases, the home’s main electrical system is installed first, followed by the low voltage wiring.
Optimal performance of a structured cabling system is dependent upon a good design. A good design considers airflow and cooling issues, allows for redundancy, chooses the correct cabling for the job, and plans the cabling patch ways. Some of the more common types of cables used in low-voltage wiring include:
Low voltage wiring basics
Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable — Cat 6 or 6a cables are the ones most often used in homes today.
Fiber optic cable — Used for long distance runs. It’s difficult to work with and requires specialized crimping tools and connectors.
Speaker wire — Used for whole-house audio and home theater applications.
Coaxial cable (coax) — The most common types used in a home are RG-59/U (.64mm core and a single shield), RG-6/U (1.024mm core with a double shield) and /RG-6/UQ (1.024mm core with a quad shield.
Security system wire — Commonly in 18 and 24AWG, with either two or four conductors.
A structured cabling system is simple, efficient, forward adaptable and organized. Specific wires can be quickly pinpointed. It’s also flexible and easy to alter or make additions to. It can carry data at high rates while reducing power and maintenance costs.
