Term Main definition
ScTP Screened twisted-pair cable

A balanced four-pair UTP with a single foil or braided screen surrounding all four pairs in order to minimize EMI radiation or susceptibility. Screened twisted-pair is also sometimes called foil twisted-pair (FTP). ScTP is a shielded version of Category 3, 5, 5e, and 6 UTP cables; they are less susceptible to EMI than UTP cables but are more susceptible than STP cables.
