HD Video Passive Balun - Set of Transmitter and Receiver

Model: HDPB0101

MXT HD CCTV Passive Video Balun 
Set of transmitter and receiver balun
The HDPB0101 video balun is a passive (non-amplified) device that allows the transmission of real-time CCTV HD video signal via cost-effective un-shielded twisted paired (UTP) cable.  This balun is compatible with all HD-TVI, AHD, HD-CVI and CVBS analog cameras.
  • Passive, no power required
  • Compatible with HD-TVI, AHD, HD-CVI, CVBS analog cameras
  • Mini-coax pigtail allows quick mounting and flexible connection
  • Push-pin terminal block allows connection of UTP cable output without tools.
  • Built-in surge suppressor to protect video equipment against damaging voltage spikes.
  • Crosstalk and noise immunity ensure quality video signal
  • Superior interference rejection and low emissions allow video signals to coexist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits
  • Connectable design for neat installation
Wire and Cable Recommendations
  • The HDPB0101 is recommended to use with Unshielded Twisted Paired (UTP) wiring from 24AWG through 22AWG. 
  • Individually shielded pairs should be avoided, as they reduce the operating range of systems drastically.
  • Multi-pair (25-pair or more) with an overall shield are acceptable.
  • Video signals can coexist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltages power circuits.
  • While video may be routed through telephone punch-down block terminals, any bridge-taps, also called T-taps and any resistive, capacitive or inductive devices MUST BE removed from the pair.
