    1 Channel Passive CCTV BALUN - Video/Power over Cat5

    This pair of single channel passive video baluns will carry video 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. 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: Small, reliable

    These baluns have worked flawlessly for me on several occasions. They are fairly small, which is important when working in tight spaces. If you get your cabling correct, these wlll work just fine.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 6878. If I may ask, what devices and length cables are you connecting to this balun exactly? Have you tried swapping out the camera to see if the issue persisted? What about changing the BNC and power supplies used? Can we try short Cat cables just for testing purposes? Does this issue happen with all baluns on this order? Please let me know so we can look into this issue further. We also offer tech support via live chat if quicker communication is needed. Thank you in advance!

    I am using Lorex normal 480H 4 camera system, I tried using my local as well as longer cat5 cables, Both has similar issues of data loss of not showing anything on my screen. I tried using 5 Feet Cat% cable same issue. I tried 3 of them all shows same issues, but sometimes I get some pictures and its nor persistent. yes I tried connecting using normal Analog cable it worked as expected.

    Hello,

    Great, thank you for the extra information! Just to verify, the unit with the short BNC connection (video in) is connected to the camera and the unit with the BNC pigtail (video out) is connected to the monitor/DVR, correct? Have you tried power-cycling the setup to see if that makes any difference? Are the Cat5 cables straight or crossover? Straight cables would be required for this setup. Also, are they wired as T568A or T568B? Please let me know as this issue should not be happening with all units on the order. Thank you again in advance!

    It is T568B @ home and Straight Cable, I also noticed something i tried doing some combinations, I got 1 pair working just fine out of 5 using test Cat5 wire, i also noticed some burning signs or irregularities on things which didnt work. was that expected?

    Hello,

    I see... Glad you were able to get one of the baluns to work! There should not be any burning signs or irregularities on the other units. Do you happen to have links to the camera system and power supplies in use here? Also, are you able to send me pictures of those so we can look into this further? If so, my email is gabrielle.villa@monoprice.com . Thank you.

    Sure, I also got one unit from my local HW store it seems to be working like a charm, I will send you the details tonight. It seems these were defaulted units as others are working fine.

    Pros: Inexpensive way to allow Cat6 cabling in your analog surveillance system.

    Cons: Once in a while, you get a dud.

    I just finished installing a 16-camera analog surveillance system in a church. These baluns allowed me to use Cat6 cable which helps "future-proof" my installation a little better. I had some runs over 300ft. and these things perform flawlessly. Of the 30-40 that I've bought over the last few years, I've had a couple that were bad but overall, I'm very pleased.

    Pros: - Easy install
    - No additional configuration needed.
    - Patch a Ethernet cable (RJ-45) and you will be all set to go.

    Cons: - Power cable could be a little longer.

    I am not sure if this product is weatherproof and it can stand the weather changes during winter and summer. I have them place inside of weather proof electrical box, let see what happens.
    If you do not see any picture after you install this product you most likely have the Ethernet cabling done incorrectly. I had the same issue and as soon as I changed the cabling everything started to work correctly. I followed the T-568B standard Straight-Through.
