In addition to the simple variant, the use of shielded cables is recommended for high transmission quality. These provide sufficient protection against external interference. In most cases, double-shielded cables (foil screen and mesh overall screen) are used
This can also be bridged distances of more than 10 meters without noticeable losses.
