What kind of cable is used for security cameras?
The short answer is “It depends on the type of cameras.” Basically there are two main types: RG59 (coax) and FTP. If you are planning on installing Turbo HD, HD-CVI or analog (CVBS) cameras then the easiest cable to use is RG59 coax. With that type you`ll need BNC connestors in order to connect you cameras. Here is the time to say that you can use UTP cable for the same purpose. If so you`ll need video baluns.
What is the difference?
It depends on how you`d like to install your cameras, which will be the easier way to do it.
What about the FTP cable?
This type of cable we use when installing IP cameras and planning IP based security system.
What about the distances?
You can use RG59+2*0.5 power line for distances up to 60-70m. After that you should consider using 24V power supply combined with DC-DC convertor installed at camera`s end instead of 12V. But if we`re talking about coax then you can use it with Turbo HD and HD-CVI cameras for distances up to 300m. When the security system is IP based and the cable is FTP the most commonly asked question is “How far can we run PoE cameras?”. Well, the answer is up to 100m from the PoE switch, regardless of where the power is injected. The limitation is not the power; it's the Ethernet cabling standards that limit the total length of cabling to 100 meters.
