Connectors
Equally important, to the lifespan of the installation, is the quality of the connectors used on the cable. Ideally Adler crimp BNC connectors should be used. A cheap BNC connector can also have an adverse effect on the quality of the video signal. We fit either a red or a blue rubber boot to each cable. Firstly, this protects the connection and indicates whether the cable has an incoming or outgoing video signal. We use red to indicate an incoming signal and blue an outgoing signal.
Labelling
All camera and cables are numbered. They are numbered for maintenance purposes. Invariably cameras are unplugged during maintenance and often installation companies change the order of the cameras when they re-plug them back into the system. Having numbered cables ensures that the cameras are plugged back into their correct location and reduces the amount of down time.
Housings
All cameras that are not installed in a dust-free internal environment are encased in either a stainless steel or aluminium housing with an ingress protection rating of IP65. These housings have a life span of at least 10 years compared to mild steel housings, which often need to be replaced after 18 months.
