Active Video Balun Transmitter for UTP transmission from 500 to 6,000 feet (150 to 1,800 meters). Live video transmission for operation over twisted pair or Category 5 cables up to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters).
The TT560 is designed for operation over Category 2, 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable and requires a Nitek active receiver unit. The units work equally well over existing communication and computer network spare pairs, or new cable installations. A highly balanced transmitter output design assures that the system will not interfere with other equipment on the network. In addition, the transmitter is virtually impervious to ground loop and has high immunity to noise and interference from other signals. Built-in surge suppression is standard.
A dip switch on the unit provides precise adjustment of gain and frequency compensation, allowing the system to be "fine-tuned" for any cable.
- Active electronics compensate for frequency and level loss
- Built-in protection from power surge, transients, static or other electrical interference
- High resolution color or monochrome video
- Complete immunity to ground loop; video and AC can be run in a common raceway, where allowed
- Video can be run in the same cable with telephone and computer signals
- Weatherproof design
- Easy to install
- College Campuses - using existing communication cables saves time and money
- High Rise Buildings - between floors, through punch-down blocks
- Detention Facilities - twisted pair takes less space than coax in a conduit
- High Voltage Facilities - high immunity to AC power interference
- Parking Garages- where running coax is difficult to impossible
- Remote Gates - can be run in same cable with audio and gate control
Wire and Cable Recommendations
Twisted Sender is recommended for use with unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wiring. The systems will operate over wire gauges from 26 AWG through 12 AWG but are optimized for 24 AWG. Category 2, 3, 4 or 5 cable may be used. Individually shielded pairs should be avoided as they drastically reduce the operating range of the systems. Multi-pair cable with an overall shield is acceptable. Video can be operated in the same communication cable coexistent with telephone, computer, control signals, power voltages and other video signals. 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.
