6-pin Mini-Din...What's Inside?

Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by giddyupchicken, Sep 10, 2008.

  1. Would you be kind enough to tell me just what is inside a 6-pin mini-
    din cable? I am trying to replace a large length of cable for a cctv
    system camera, and need some help knowing exactly what it is that I
    should buy.

    I looked on the mfr's site, and they list two types available - one
    they term "high performance" and the other is "standard". However, I
    know they are asking way, way too much for the cable, and I want to
    find another supplier.

    Is the cable called something else, or, what should I be looking for
    in order to get the best performance from the cctv camera?

    Thank you,

    cable with a coax for the video and power lines, it will be
    expensive and have a length limit. The coax part will also
    have a specific impedance requirement. If it is just a
    data cable with common shield, it can get very cheap, depending
    on the quality you need. It all depends on the camera and its
