CCTV Camera Pros received the following question from a customer:
I have my site prewired for CCTV cameras with a dual power/video cable (RG59 Siamese). However, there are no terminations or ends on the cables.
I am using a Lorex system and would like to buy the ends to properly terminate the cables.
My system is a Lorex H 264 8 Channel system. I can use the cords that came with it, but it would be MUCH easier if I could just terminate the existing cables that are already run in the walls.
Any suggestions what terminations and tools I would need to terminate these cables?
CCTV Camera Pros recommendation:
Thank You for contacting us. Yes, this is possible using the following BNC connectors for the coax cable. You actually have your choice of crimp on connectors or twist on connectors:
The crimp on is a more secure application. You need one of these tools to crimp the ends:
and this is a handle tool to strip the cable:
Here is a video that show how to use BNC crimp on connectors:
For the 18/2 power cable, you will need a PT-3 pigtail lead to terminate the cables to a 2.1mm DC plug:
