Modular UTP Video Card Cage with built in power source

Model Number: VH3200

Powered Card Cage

The VH3200 is a 32 port powered video hub with built-in surge suppression and video detection. Systems operate with other Nitek UTP video equipment including, Video transceiver hubs, standard video balun transceivers, active transmitters, or any twisted pair equipped camera.

The VH3200 series UTP modular hub system holds up to four VB41x8, TR515x8 or TR560x8 8 channel video receiver cards in any combination, for a total of 32 input ports. The VB41x8 can be used on video runs up to 750 feet (225 meters). The TR515x8 can be used up to 1,500 feet (450 meters) with passive transmitters. The TR560x8 can be used up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) with passive transmitters and up to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) with the NITEK TT560 active transmitter.

  • Quality video over ordinary twisted pair cable
  • Immunity to noise and interference
  • Built-in surge suppression on VB39 models
  • Passive devices - do not require power
  • Video & P/T/Z over a single pair (with up-the-coax systems)
  • M - version mounts directly to camera or video source
  • Weatherproof design
  • Easier to install than coax

Wire and Cable Recommendations

Twisted Sender is recommended for use with unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wiring. The systems will operate over wire gauges from 26 AWG through 12 AWG but are optimized for 24 AWG. Category cabling may be used. Individually shielded pairs should be avoided as they drastically reduce the operating range of the systems. Multi-pair cable with an overall shield is acceptable. Video can be operated in the same communication cable coexistent with telephone, computer, control signals, power voltages and other video signals. While video may be routed through telephone punch-down block terminals, any bridge-taps, also called T-taps and any resistive, capacitive or inductive devices MUST BE removed from the pair.
