Description
 
The Balun-PV5FM is a CAT-5 balun used to transmit video and power for CCTV cameras up to 1500 feet. The PV5FM is also known as a UTP balun because any UTP cable / wire can be used with it (not necessarily CAT5).  This video balun pair that allows a surveillance system installer to run a CCTV video signal up to 1500 feet.  Please note that although this balun also supports transmitting pwer to cameras also, it is typically not realistic for DC power to run a distance of 1500 feet without voltage drop.  The Balun-PV5FM is sold as a set which includes one power end with a male and the other with a female connector.  PT-3 and PT-4 pigtail leads can be used to change the power plugs to positive and negative raw cable leads if needed.

    UTP Balun Installation with CCTV Cameras

    Please refer to the below diagram to understand how to use this UTP video balun for use with CCTV cameras.  Using a CAT5 cable, the security installer will untwist the end of one of the UTP pairs of the CAT-5 and using the screw terminals, connect this pair to the video terminals (these are labeled V+ and V- on the balun)  on one end of the balun.  The installer should note which color if being used for + and -.  The cable colors must be matched on the other balun.  The power terminals are labeled P+ and P- on each balun.  For better power throughput, the security installer should use two pairs to transmit power.  Connect on twisted pair to P+ and one pair to P-.  Note that when using CAT-5 cable with the PV5FM video balun system, there is one unused UTP cable in the CAT5.
