“The unparalleled interference rejection and low emissions of the NV-218A-PVD let video signals co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits,” emphasizes Guy Apple, NVT vice president, marketing and sales. “This allows the use of a shared or existing cable plant, reducing costs and time of installation. As with all NVT products, the NV-218A-PVD carries a limited lifetime warranty and is UL and cUL listed.”

With the new NV-218A-PVD, power, video and data are routed via UTP and RJ45 or “press-fit” terminal block inputs/outputs. When used at the camera, the passive NV-218A-PVD has a 9-inch mini-coax pigtail lead for direct video output connection from the camera.

Alongside the coax lead are two sets of “press-fit” terminal blocks for quick pass-through connections for the camera’s power and data. On the “house” or output side of the product, installers have the option of deploying convenient “press-fit” UTP connectors or the more efficient RJ45.

NVT’s transmitters, transceivers, receivers and hubs allow the use of new or existing unshielded twisted pair wire, Category 2 or better, for video transmission. This allows end-users and installers to deliver a high quality picture over the same wire used by phone systems while simultaneously cutting costs and simplifying installation.
