    1 Channel Passive CCTV BALUN - Video/Audio/Power over Cat5

    This pair of single channel passive video baluns will carry video, audio and power over cat5, giving you the ability to utilize straight network cables to connect your cameras. Simply connect the BNC ends to your camera and your recording device or display, connect the DC ends to a Power Supply and the Camera, then connect your network cable through the RJ45 jacks; audio can be transmitted via RCA plugs. Depending on camera power draw, power output, cable size and environment, results will vary. Average conditions allow transmission up to 1,000 ft. On longer runs video quality might be slightly reduced.
    DC Jacks are 2.1 x 5.5mm

    Pros: they do what they are supposed to do.

    Cons: none

    I have installed 50+ of these, they just work. These are different from others you can buy. These have a filtering circuit that cleans up a lot of noise and ground loop issues.. The ones you can buy that have two screws for the cat 5 are not filtered.

    Pros: Well the price was a big pro. I had ran CAT5 and still have the old cameras. I'll be changing them out in the near future to HD's

    Cons: I didn't have a guy climb the ladder to install these for me.

    I bought eight balums and they all worked great.. Thanks agian Monoprice for another great price.

    CCTV baluns

    Pros: Allows me to use my telephone copper twisted pair infrastructure and not have to run any new wires.
    Very low price.
    No noticeable signal degradation.

    Cons: The BNC male connector is fixed to the balun housing. This makes tucking the balun/connector mass into the camera mounting box a little tricky sometimes, but the whole package is small enough to fit into a standard single-gang J-box.

    These baluns don't require CAT5 wires. I'm using spare pairs on an inter-building 25 pair key cable which are CAT3 at best. For longer runs, I put a local 12v power supply closer to the camera and just use one pair for video back to the DVR.
    The pairs used are documented on the balun package and use T568B wiring.

    Pros: Work as designed.
    Includes Audio

    These work great. I initially purchased for a project that didn't require audio, but with the price difference, it was hard not to go ahead and purchase these units. They have performed flawlessly.
