If you need to terminate or shorten an existing terminated CAT5e camera cable, you may first need to expose the CAT5e cable from the "all-in-one" cable by removing the cable jacket and exposing all wires.

What you should know

One end of the “all-in-one” cable is terminated with a camera connector for either a Sharp or a SharpX camera. The other end of the cable is either cut clean or ends with a pigtail, depending on the system you are installing.

Procedure

  1. Strip 20 cm (8 in.) of the all-in-one cable’s jacket to expose the wires inside.
    Exposing the camera cable wires
    • A: All-in-one cable
    • B: Camera wires (SharpX wire shown)
    • C: CAT5e cable
  2. Trim the polyester fill threads and aluminum foil as needed.
