The PSPRO-AC-18 is an 18ch 24V CCTV power supply box used in low voltage security installations. This power supply can be used with any type of 24VAC powered security device, including
analog CCTV cameras, HD security cameras, and network IP cameras. Please confirm that your device requires 24VAC and NOT 12V DC. If you connect a 12V DC device to a 24VAC power supply, the circuit board will be burnt and the device will be ruined. You can find 12V DC power supply boxes here.
This 24V power distribution box is typically installed with 16ch security camera systems, even though it actually has 18 channels. This power box supplies 24 VAC 20 Amp continuous current to 18 channels. The power box housing is made of heavy gauge metal. This power supply box can be used with the 18/2 conductor power wire in RG59 Siamese cable as well as pre-made CCTV cables.

The PSPRO-AC-18 uses PTC auto reset fuses instead of traditional one time use fuses. The above image shows a power supply box on the left that uses traditional fuses. The one on the right shows our power distribution box with PTC fuses. Please note that the PSPRO-AC-18 comes in a light tan metal case. PTC fuses are much more convenient because when there is a short circuit, the PTC turns the circuit off. When the short circuit is fixed, the PTC automatically resets. There is no burnt out fuse to replace.

Pre-cut Power Wire Knockouts
The above image shows the left and right sides of the PSPRO-AC-9. This is the same metal case as the PSPRO-AC-18.
This 24VAC power supply box has pre-cut wire knockouts to run power wire through. The power input terminal is located on the side of the box as well. The power cord that is included plugs into the power terminal and power is supplies from a standard wall outlet - 110-120VAC.
The above image shows the back of the power box. Please note that there are 4 pre-drilled holes for wall mounting the box. There is also a cutout to run the camera power cables through which can be used instead of the side knockouts.
Power Supply Box Installation
This diagram shows how to install a
24VAC CCTV power supply box with a security camera system using RG59 Siamese coax cable. This is how it works.
Please note that our 24VAC power supply boxes can be used to power CCTV cameras, HD security camera, IP cameras and other 24VAC alarm devices. Please confirm that your device requires 24VAC and NOT 12V DC. If you connect a 12V DC device to a 24VAC power supply, the circuit board will be burnt and the device will be ruined.
- The raw cable ends of the 18/2 power wire is connected to one of the ports on the power distribution panel using the screw terminals.
- The camera end of the power cable attaches to the power terminals on the 24VAC CCTV camera.
