A customer contacted CCTV Camera Pros today and asked the following question about wiring a PTZ camera:
Can you please explain what cable is needed to wire a CCTV PTZ camera?
CCTV Camera Pros response:
There are 3 sets of wires used with traditional Analog CCTV PTZ Cameras. RG-59 or RG6 coaxial for video, 18~24 AWG copper wire pair for power and another 18~24 AWG copper wire pair for RS485 / PTZ commands. I recommend RG-59 Siamese for video and power. You can just use everyday doorbell wire for the RS485 communication.
