CCTV Siamese Security Camera Cable consists of both an RG 59 coaxial cable and two 18 AWG power cables. Because the cable has both the power and video in a single cable it makes CCTV security camera installation a breeze. CCTV Siamese Security Camera Cable allows installers to pull a single cable to each camera. Siamese cable is sold in 500 foot and 1,000 foot spools.
After running the cable to each location the RG59 coax cable, use a Coax Cable Stripper to prep the end of the cable for termination. After stripping the cable install either a twist BNC, crimp BNC or compression BNC connector on the end of the cable. For crimp on BNC connectors you will need to make sure you order a Hex BNC Crimp tool. If you order the compression BNC connectors you will need to also order a BNC compression tool. The twist on BNC connectors require no additional tool, this makes this connector great for installs of just a few cameras.
Once you have your video connection done you need to splice in a DC power adapter wire. You will need a Female 2.1mm DC Plug for the side of the cable for the camera. On the other side of the cable if you are using a power supply box you will not need any additional connectors. If you are using a wall transformer you will need to purchase a Male 2.1mm DC Plug.
