Video Balun with Power

This passive balun connects a BNC coax cable to 8-conductor twisted pair cable (RJ-45). It has an integrated power cord for connection to your camera (for use with Cat 5 cables that have data and active power*).


Typical category 5 cable uses 24 AWG (American Wire Gauge) twisted pair copper wire and is designed to safely carry 12VDC power required for most surveillance cameras when configured properly using pins 4 and 5 of the standard jack (8P8C modular connector). Always be aware of safety considerations, wire routing considerations, environmental considerations and voltage drop after 100 meters when using powered Cat 5 cable.
