RG-59 Siamese Coax Cable for CCTV Camera Installation

RG59 Siamese CCTV cable allows installers to run both the video and power to security cameras (analog CCTV, 720p and 1080p HD cameras) using a single cable run. RG-59 coaxial cable comes in 500 and 1000 foot spools and is available in black or white colors. The RG59 cable that CCTV Camera Pros supplies has a solid copper core and 95% copper braided shielding. This is the best type of coax cable to use for CCTV and HD CCTV installations. RG59 and RG6 cable with steel / copper clad core that is made for CATV (cable TV) should NOT be used for video surveillance installations.

RG59 is cut by DIY and professional installers to the exact length that you need for each camera run. The RG59 portion of the cable is COAX and is used to run the video to the security camera. The 18 gauge pair is used to run the AC or DC power to your cameras. Click to learn more about RG-59 cable or to watch a video on how to connect a BNC connector to RG59 Siamese cable. CCTV Camera Pros also supplies plug and play security camera cables which are pre-cut to different lengths and already have the BNC connectors attached.
