In the video below we demonstrate thoroughly how to use RS485 PTZ Video Baluns with a PTZ camera to simplify camera wiring and run video/power/rs485 data signals over a single CAT5e or CAT6 cable. We recommend using a CAT6 cable for runs longer than 50ft. All wire should be full copper, and not the cheap CCA or CCS (copper clad cable) that is sold on the internet. A full copper wire guarantees a good connection with minimum voltage drop along the wire.
Here is a list of items we used in this video:
- Infrared PTZ Camera
- PTZ Joystick Controller
- RS485 PTZ Video Baluns
- 100ft CAT6 Wire
- 8 Channel 1080P DVR

I have the same camera pretty much and same video baluns but the camera only has 3 connections coming off it.
Do you recommend I double up the rs485 connections toro the camera
