4K, 8MP, 4-way video balun
You will need two of these units which will allow 4 camera video signals to be carried on one CAT5 cable. Just connect a CAT5 cable with RJ45 connectors between the two baluns.
Used for sending AHD CCTV camera video signal over CAT5 twisted pair cable instead of RG59 coaxial cable. Support cameras resolutions up to 8MP. Built-in lightning protection grade 3. No power required.
Approx operating range for video signal–
- 130M @8MP
- 250M @2MP
for use with TVI-HD, Turbo HD, QTVI, CVI, AHD & QAHD systems.
CCTV video baluns, also known as UTP baluns, allow traditional coax cable to be replaced by category 5 and other forms of twisted pair wire in CCTV video camera & surveillance installations. Video baluns allow installers to use more cost-effective structured cabling techniques to wire security cameras. By using video baluns, UTP wire such as cat-5 can be run over long distances easier than coax cable and for less money. Active balun transceivers enable UTP wires for cameras to be run distances up to 5,000 feet. If you are new to the idea of using baluns for video, check out our video balun installation videos.
Please be aware while video signal can be carried over a longer distance, power is limited to 50 meters for cameras amperage up to 250mA and 30 meters at 600 mA.
