The included accessories

The 16-channel transmitter or receiver can transmit/receive video signals from 16 cameras via four 8-wire CAT5e UTP cables, preserving good quality. Each channel matches the impedance of unbalanced coaxial video output/input (75 ohm) to the impedance of the balanced line (100 ohm), ensuring proper video transmission via cat. 5 twisted pair cable from many types of cameras:
  • PAL (CVBS) up to 400 m
  • HD-TVI, AHD up to 200 m (720p) or 150 m (1080p)
  • HD-CVI up to 200 m
Distinguishing features
  • interference-free transmission of 16 video signals
  • simpler and cheaper wiring - the 16 video channels are transmitted via four UTP CAT5e cables
  • passive components - no power supply needed
  • built-in anti-interference filters
  • possibility of connecting UTP cables via RJ-45 connectors or screw terminals
The type of cable and connector wiring
A UTP cable rated CAT5 or higher is required. The quality of the cable used has a direct impact on the image quality and transmission range.
The wires should be connected (using a crimping tool, e.g. J9210) in accordance with the scheme TIA/EIA-586B for RJ-45 connectors. Coaxial cables terminated with BNC plugs are to be connected to the BNC sockets.
RJ-45 wiring

The video signals from the cameras are transmitted via UTP cables, using M16655 baluns and the 16-channel balun M16715
