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.
Types of Security Camera Cable
There is 3 type of security camera cable which as is as follows.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
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.administrator@CCTVdesk.com
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.
