Click here to watch a video demonstration of how to connect the PV5FM CAT5 balun to a CCTV camera.
The following video demonstrates how to connect the PV5FM to a CCTV camera, power source, and surveillance DVR.
In this video we will demonstrate how to connect the PV5FM video and power balun to a CCTV camera, surveillance DVR, and power source.
On the test bench I have a box style CCTV camera which has a standard BNC output and 2.1mm power connector.
Each of the PV5FM video balun sides has a male BNC video connector. One side of the pair has a female power lead and the other side a male.
The cat-5 cable has the wires already stripped down on the camera end of the cable run. We will use the orange pair for the video connection and both the blue and green pairs for power. Only 3 pairs are used with this balun, so the brown pair is set aside. Please note after stripping the 2 power pairs, each of the pair ends are twisted back together so that we use 1 complete pair for + and one complete pair for the - power connection.
On the DVR and power supply side balun, the cables are already connected. The wire connections to the balun are made with the standard phillips screw terminals on the balun. Again notice that the orange pair is used for the video + and - terminal. For the power, a pair is used for the + and a pair for the - connection. This allows for extra conduction to run the power.
On the camera side balun, we connect the power lead to the power input of the camera and the BNC video output of the camera to the BNC in on the balun.
To keep this video short, we are not going to actually connect the camera side of the CAT-5 connection so please pretend that both ends of the cat-5 cable are connected to a balun.
On the DVR and power supply side balun, we connect the power input on the balun to a invididual DC power supply.
And the power supply would simply connect to a standard wall power outlet or surge protector.
The BNC video output would connect to your surveillance DVR or monitor.
Alternatively, if you are using a power supply box instead of an individual power supply, you can connect a PT-3 power leade to the power input to easily connect to the terminals on a power supply box.
That completes the video and power balun connection from camera back to DVR.
