Product Details

Video Camera Balun BNC Male to RJ45 Cat 5/6 Jack

Video baluns offer a cost effective way to install surveillance and video systems. Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable is less expensive than coaxial cable and generally easier to install due to its smaller diameter and superior flexibility. An RJ45 jack to BNC male balun attaches directly to the video output of a camera or video source device and accepts a standard network cable plug. The 75 ohm video signal is converted to a 100 ohm signal to travel over the UTP cable up to 1,000 feet.

A second balun is used on the opposite end of the UTP cable to convert the signal back to 75 ohm use. Additionally, since the input and output of a balun are not physically connected, baluns inherently eliminate ground loops' effects on the system. Sold individually, used in pairs.

Video Camera Balun BNC Male to RJ45 Cat 5/6 Jack is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I wantedI wanted a part that would connect to a regular coaxial cable and to Ethernet cable. This Balun will not connect to a regular male coaxial coming out of wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who Wouldn't Use Cat 5/6?It is hard to believe how easily these baluns are to use. I have struggled w/BNC connectors time and time again, but no more. Connecting video cams w/Cat 5/6 is the way to go!
