The PV424 is a four port video, camera power and control signal data distribution unit. Systems operate with other Nitek UTP video equipment including video hubs, standard video balun transceivers, active transmitters or any twisted pair equipped camera.
This simple to install wall mounted locking cabinet contains a UTP video receiver and is integrated with a 28VAC four channel power supply. The PV424 transmits video, power and data through the UTP cable. The cable terminates with a standard RJ45 networking connector. Nitek recommends a maximum cable distance of 750 feet which may be reduced based on camera power requirements. Video, camera power and data will be separated from the cable through a VB43ATF or VB31AT video balun.
The PV424 provides power and video detection LEDs for easy troubleshooting. Camera ports are individually fused with a self resetting fuse. The PV424 and the DVR are ready to communicate in a matter of minutes by simply connecting a standard coaxial cable between the BNC video output connectors of the PV424 product and the DVR.
The systems can also adapt to existing communication and computer network spare pairs or new cable installations. These units provide superior immunity from noise and interference, even when run in common raceways with AC.

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. Multipair 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 punchdown block terminals, any bridge-taps, also called T-taps and any resistive, capacitive or inductive devices MUST BE removed from the pair. For more specific information regarding wire types, gauges and proper installation techniques, please call 800-528-4343 for technical assistance.
