Baluns contain small signal transformers that are specially tuned to match the cables impedance and convert the unbalanced signal to a balanced one. PASSIVE baluns just have the transformers and very little else in them.

ACTIVE baluns have extra electronic circuits used to amplify the signals helping prevent losses and also filtering out unwanted noise.

On some PASSIVE baluns that carry video and data signals, the data “terminals” do not go through a transformer or any other electronics and are a direct electrical connection to the CAT5 cable. These “terminals” can be useful for lots of purposes including sending low voltage (5 or 12V) from one balun to another.

This active balun range is ideal for transmitting analogue CCTV footage up to 1Km over CAT5!

You can mix and match the following units to make your ideal combo but will require a TX unit at the camera end of the installation and a RX unit at the opposite DVR or monitor end.

At the CCTV camera (or video output) end install a TX unit:

  • 1 channel TX code BAL651
  • 4 channel TX code BAL654

At the DVR (or video input) end install a RX unit:

  • 1 channel RX code BAL601
  • 4 channel RX code BAL604
  • 8 channel RX code BAL658
  • 16 channel RX code BAL666

  • 16 BNC sockets for VIDEO (2 for each channel)
