back on CCTV

i was 'told' by the cctv wholesaler, that t-strip power connectors (essentially a phono type connector with some screw down connectors attached) are a convenient way to terminate the red and black power cores on cctv 'shotgun' (coax and power) cable.

when i asked, ok, what does one use for an enclosure, as although extra low voltage it looks klunky and 'exposed' to my exacting standards :-)

i was told, oh installers just leave them in the ceiling voids etc.. no enclosure

well, i wondered if any one on here can offer a link or so or name for some suitable 'empty' enclosures to take just a bnc and this phono t-strip thingy, thats not too big in size etc for the job ?

bit dull this post, but if any one can recommend etc it would be appreciated.

thank you

Choc box will take a BNC and phono (or BNC and 2.1mm power connector)

Outside I tend to use Wiska boxes as the BNC socket on a camera will pass through 20mm flexi without a problem

@Rulland

re: your link, yes those are the things...... my question was about a suitable enclosure for them rather than leave them floating around in a ceiling void etc all exposed......even if it is a negligable voltage.

@slittle ... thanks for that...i'll see if i can get hold of some.

I always use tape on these to stop them getting pulled apart. I also tape up the bnc and put all in a choc box

I'm not sure if tape would satisfy 526.5.

the tape it just to ensure it is not pulled apart.

If its outside then a 4x4 ip box and we still wrap BNC in self almagulating tape to keep moisture out the plugs
