Security Camera Cable: The most important part of CCTV camera setup.

Security camera cable is an important part of CCTV industry. Today I am going to describe very important part of CCTV camera setup which is security camera cable, I will also explain security camera cable type and security camera Cable wire colour code.

Security Camera Cable

Security camera cable is basically manufactured in such a way that it should optimize video signal quality. CCTV camera cable is composed of two  sub cables that will run simultaneously for transmitting both video and power signal, Video transmitting cable  also called RJ59 Cable, one sub cable is the central solid copper conductor core shielded by dielectric material, then further shielded by  copper or alloy braid that will transmit video signal and another is  power cables that will transmit  power and both two-part is insulated by PVC having diameter of 5.5 mm to 7.5 mm.

Now I would like to explain core means RJ59 cable, which is made up of dense copper having diameter of 0.22 to 0.28 mm. this core is very crucial and play a vital role for CCTV integrator. If use cable which have good quality solid copper which have more than 0.25mm diameter and have more than 30 shielded braid then definitely you can transmit video up to 150 meter but you should keep in mind that for 150 meter Video transmission you should also transmit power for 150 meter, for this you need good quality AWG power cable. In India this type of cable is very rare you have to make on order. General Cables comes in Indian market have 0.22mm diameter core that will transmit up to 90 meters only.  As far as security camera cable wire color code is considered generally yellow wire is used for video, Red color power wire is used for positive (+), Black color wire is used for Negative(+) and green is for ground. BNC Connector is connected to yellow wire and DC connector is connected to red and black color.

Security Camera Cable

Types of Security Camera Cable


There is 3 type of security camera cable which as is as follows.

  1. 4+1  CCTV Cable – This Cable is the composition of two type sub cable that will run simultaneously one part is four power cables that will transmit Power and another part is the RJ59 cable that will transmit video.
  2. 3+1  CCTV Cable – This Cable is the composition of two type sub cable that will run simultaneously one part is three power cables that will transmit Power and another part is the RJ59 cable that will transmit video.
  3. 2+1  CCTV Cable – This Cable is the composition of two type sub cable that will run simultaneously one part is two power cables that will transmit Power and another part is the RJ59 cable that will transmit video.

I have a few questions in reference to above article.

Ques. What is the maximum length for coaxial cable for CCTV?

Ans. In general, you get the length of 300 meters of CCTV Cable without any joint but it will transmit video only up to 100 meters.

Ques. What kind of cable is used for CCTV?

Ans.  You can use any among three types as mention in the article, As an expert, I recommend 3+1 CCTV cable because one wire is used as reserve wire if some natural problem arises then it would be used in future. Another reason in some cases of CCTV Camera Setup you need install audio mic in that it is very useful.

Ques. What is HSN Code of CCTV Camera Cable and import duty?

cctv camera cable

Ans.  8544-Insulated wire, cable (including co-axial cable) and other insulated electric conductors, whether or not fitted with connectors;

 Ques. How long can you run BNC Cable?

Ans. You can use BNC cable in CCTV camera cable is up to 100 meters, it mean it will transmit video signal up to 100 meters, For more than 100 Meters read above article.

 Ques. In India is there any genuine CCTV camera cable manufacturer?

Ans. Yes, In India you find CCTV camera cable manufacturer. If you need my help to find CCTV camera cable then you mail me on my email.[email protected]

Ques. How do I join cut CCTV Camera Cable or RJ59 Cable or Co-axial Cable?

Anw. It is very simple As you joint electric wire, CCTV camera cable will also joint in the same way but you need every wire separate, it means core wire and shield. The braid should be separate but if you are asking how to cut and join.

how to do long distance CCTV installation help of video balun

Hello, my dear friend today I am going to explain long distance CCTV installation with the help of video balun.

What is video balun?

Video balun is basically Video signal extender, when you open a video balun you will find a small circuit that will increase video signal, in another world video balun is a replacement of traditional coaxial cable over cat5 and cat6 cable. The CCTV balun maximum distance is up to 305 metre, So it is worth for long distance CCTV video Installation. Video Balun is also useful for such condition when your video is blur due to the interference of some other signal.

log distance cctv installation

How to use video balun for long distance CCTV installation?

Now come to the point that how video balun is a solution of long distance CCTV video Installation, as we all know that traditional coaxial cable has a distance limit  Up to 90 meters. So when we use video balun then it will increase up to 305 meters. In another word CCTV maximum distance is 305 metre, Video balun installed simply by using cat5, cat6 cable and LAN RJ45  Connector. It is better that you use video balun in pair one as the sender and another as a receiver. There are several types of video balun as Add single channel 4 channels 8 channel and 16 Channel. Single channel video balloon simply transmitting video signal up to 300 meters  And it is also helpful to reduce unnecessary signal that will affect video quality. Video Balun will work on AHD/HD-TVI/HD-CVI technology.

long distance cctv installation

Multichannel long distance  CCTV installation

Now I explain 4 channel, 8channel and 16 channel video balun by example, that how easily you can handle long distance CCTV video Installation. if you need to install 16 HD camera in four Storey building then simply You install 4 camera at each storey then in that case you need to install one four-channel video balun on every storey and from top floor you simply but one cat5 or cat6 cable to DVR end, it means for every four cameras you need single cat 5 or cat 6 cable but if you do not use video balun then you get a bunch of wire at DVR and maybe you get video loss if distance is above 100 meter.  When you purchase video balun you will find for 8 channel you two cat5/cat6 Cable and for 16 channel four cat6 cables.

So finally for understanding this topic better if you are aware with IP camera setup using Network Switch then video balun is just like the switch for HD Camera Setup. There is little difference between Network Switch and video balun, in network Switch you have an uplink port but in the video, there is no interconnection or uplink port.

One more option also available in video balun that you use both the Rj45 connector and also direct connection of every pair as you see in the image.

Calculate Recording Capacity of IP camera. cctv storage calculator formula

CCTV storage calculator formula. CCTV storage calculator formula is based on the bandwidth of camera. The recording capacity is mainly up to the record resolution, record stream and bitrate. Different image quality parameters decide different disk capacity occupation in equal times. The bigger the record resolution, record stream and record bitrate are, the more disk capacity is taken up in equal times. You can easily calculate how much capacity you required for a specific amount of time.  before learning CCTV storage calculator formula, first, understand the what is bitrate.

What is bitrate?

In simple words, You can say, bitrate is a flow of data. When an image is processed then it takes the signal from a processor in the form data. The CCTV setup which gives you high quality of an image, have the high quality of processor and flow more quantity of data in comparison to others system. the higher the bit rate of a video, the higher the video quality.

The CCTV storage calculator formula of recording capacity is shown as below.

CCTV storage calculator formula

Recording Capacity(MB) = Bitrate(Kbps) ÷1024 ÷8 × 3600 × Recording hours per day ×Record Storage Days × channel numbers.

3600 means record for an hour(1TB=1024GB,1GB=1024MB,1MB=1024KB,1Byte=8bit).

For your understanding, we define a table

cctv storage calculator formula

The table below shows the recording capacity requirements for record storage in 30 days.

cctv storage calculator formula

For instance, there is a 32CH NVR recording 24 hours per day and the record stores for 30 days. The NVR adopts dual stream recording. The mainstream is 4096Kbps and the substream is 1024Kbps, then the total recording capacity is 49.45TB (39.56TB + 9.89TB). Considering the format loss of the disk is about 10%, the required disk capacity will be 55TB (49.45TB ÷(1-10%)). This table is mainly for IP camera setup but using same formula you can calculate the storage capacity for all kind of camera.

Now comes to the point it means if the camera comes with lower lux it perform well with respect to the camera which has more lux.  Image Comparison of Normal and lower lux Camera.

So if you required a good quality camera apart from TVL and MP Rating, Lux is very important. If you have a lower light condition then a low lux camera plays a very important role. Sometimes when you install a camera in opposite direction of light in that case light affect issue rises,  you get the dark image. Under such condition either you change the location of the camera or you need a camera which has lower lux.


There are the different brand available in CCTV market but each brand has different lux specification so if you have such condition mean the light condition is not proper then select those brand which has lower lux specification.

Apart from lux IR- LED also play an important role. if you need good quality night vision then apart from lux you need to have more IR led. There is different kind of Ir LED available in the market, 24 LEDs, 36 Led, 84 LEDs, Array LED and smart IR LED.  So Camera with lower lux and four arrays led is the best option but you need to keep one thing in mind that array led consumed more power. So for this combination, you need to give separate power by an adapter, you may use 12v 2 Amp Adapter or 12v 3 Amp.
