Run video wires up to 1500 ft using our video baluns. These video baluns convert normal CAT5 or CAT6 wire to a 75 OHM impedance for proper video transmission. Baluns connect to camera and VCR/TV/DVR.
Use Cat 5, thermostat wire, speaker wire, or any other kind of wire.
Because Cat 5 cable has 4 pairs of wire, you could use 4 baluns on each end of it and run 4 video signals through one Cat 5 cable.
Baluns are passive and require no power. Baluns have 2 screw-down terminals to connect wire to, and a male BNC jack to connect to camera or DVR.
Note: Baluns are sold in pairs. Each unit ordered is 2 baluns.
Package Includes: 2 Baluns
The video balun is strictly for video. One pair is required for each camera. There will be screw terminals to connect your CAT5 or CAT6 to the balun. It will convert your cable to 75 ohms in order to properly transfer a video signal.
Run Video and PTZ RS-485 Over Normal Cat5 or CAT6
PTZ Baluns are designed to run video and PTZ data control for up to 1000ft over Cat 5 or 6 cable. Power can also be run through the baluns over Cat wiring, but for shorter distances due to voltage drop. It is always best to locally power a PTZ camera when distances are longer than 400 ft. These baluns can be used for regular cameras by running the power and video through Cat 5 or for PTZ cameras by running the power, video, and PTZ control through Cat 5.
Utilize Existing Cat 5 or 6 Cable Installations
Using baluns allow you to send video, power, and RS-485 PTZ control through regular Cat 5. Save time and money by using regular Cat 5 cable when installing cable. No need to run separate control wire. It can all be sent through standard Cat 5 cable. Baluns allow your cameras to be installed easier using your existing wiring. Connect a PTZ to a normal Cat 5 jack and view, control, and power it from another office through the existing wiring.
These baluns convert standard cabling into twisted pair wiring. This allows easier and longer runs of cable. Run up to 1000ft of Cat 5 for your PTZ camera.
Note: These are only sold in pairs. Each quantity contains 2 (two) baluns.
