Despite the growing popularity of wireless cameras, many people and companies are using wired video surveillance devices. Cables for CCTV are consumable items, and sooner or later, they need to be changed. It is important to choose the right cable so that it is compatible with your type of camera and lasts as long as possible. The IDome online store provides customers with a wide range of CCTV cables at low prices.
Types of cables for video surveillance systems
Depending on the type of camera you are using, you need to select the appropriate cable. There are 3 types of security camera wires, each of which is used for different video monitoring devices. They are the following:
- Coaxial cable for CCTV. It is a conductor made of a central copper core and a braid. Also, such wires have a separating layer of dielectric material, and they are protected by an outer sheath. As a rule, conductors with a resistance of 75 ohms are used for CCTV video surveillance. These cables are connected to video devices using BNC connectors. It is worth paying attention to fire-resistant conductors that are protected from high temperatures.
- Combined cable. This video surveillance network cable is something similar to a coaxial conductor, but it includes 2 copper strands. One of them provides data transfer, and the other provides power to devices, which is why the cable itself is called combined. There is also a variety of cables in which the second core provides not power supply but sound transmission for cameras with a microphone.
- Twisted pair. Such conductors are used to connect IP cameras. Twisted pair cable is also known as CCTV Ethernet cables. Products of this type are 8 conductors twisted together in pairs into 4 pairs. These pairs are separated from each other by means of special dividing partitions and do not interact with each other. The conductors are enclosed in a protective sheath.
- Fibre optic cable. This is a modern solution that is used by new models of IP cameras. They can be used for video monitoring devices equipped with SFP slots. These cables have become popular due to the possibility of stable signal transmission for tens of kilometres.
There are also CCTV camera extension cables. These conductors are equipped with special connectors that can be connected to another cable and thus extend it.
