Definitions

Electronics

  • The extent to which the electrical characteristics of two conductors in a transmission line are similar. Also, the degree of electrical similarity between a conductor and ground. The greater the balance, the lesser the extraneous disturbances, such as crosstalk and hum.
  • A device utilized to help achieve line balance (1). An example is a line-balance converter.
