  • Details
    Voltage Range 108 to 264 VAC, 50/60 Hz
    Power at Rated Voltage 15 W
    Maximum Video Signal Distances
    Coax Up to 300 m (1000 ft) using standard CCTV-grade RG-59U with copper center conductor and copper braided shield; up to 600 m (2000 ft.) using CCTV-grade RG-11 or RG-6.
    Fiber Up to 600 m (2000 ft) using LTC 4630 and LTC 4631 Series fiber optic modules. Note: This distance includes the length of coax cables used between the devices and the fiber optic link.
    Other Up to 230 m (750 ft) using CAT5E cable that meets ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A requirements with NV-211 or NV-214 A-M BNC-to-twisted Balun devices (or similar passive device pair). Note: When using twisted pair links of this type, some degradation in video quality may be experienced at distances beyond 150°m (500°ft).

    LTC 8508/01 Ribbon-to-BNC Interface Cable
    Interface cable with a 34-pin ribbon cable on one end and 16 male BNC connectors on the other end. This cable is required when the LTC 8016 unit will be connected to control system devices that do not contain a 34-pin ribbon cable connector.
    LTC 8807/00 BNC Panel Interface panel used to convert video ribbon cables from up to two LTC 8016 units into 32 standard female BNC connectors. Useful when the LTC 8016 unit will be separated from the control unit beyond the 2 m (6 ft)distance allowed by the video ribbon cable supplied with the unit.
    LTC 4630, LTC 4631 Fiber Optic Series modules compatible with Bilinx communication. Available in surface-mount and rack- mount models. Refer to the LTC 4600 Series data sheet for complete information on these products.
    NV‑211 or NV‑214 A‑M BNC-to-twisted pair adaptors passive (non-amplified) devices compatible with Bilinx technology, allowing transmission of real-time monochrome or color video over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) telephone wire. Refer to the NV-214 A-M Series data sheet for complete information on these products.
