  • Page 6: Cable Requirements

    Introduction CyberDome Series Installation Manual Cable Requirements For operation, CyberDomes require video, power and data cables as described below: 1) The video cable carries the video signal to the remote viewing site. If sending video via coaxial cable, a 75-ohm coaxial cable is typically used. If sending video via twisted-pair cable, an unshielded, 22 gauge (0.64 mm) twisted-pair cable is needed.

    Even though a complete CyberDome assembly weighs less than 5 lb (HD less than 15 lb), for safety reasons GE Security recommends that all mechanical components used to support the CyberDome assembly be able to support a 35 lb (15.88 kg) load. The heavy-duty dome assembly must be able to support a 75 lb (35.02 kg) load.
