Most of the below data are fit for 99% CCTV cameras since CCTV cameras usually use either a 24VAC or 12VDC voltage.All MVTEAM AHD Cameras and IP Cameras use 12VDC.

How to supply proper voltage and amperage for CCTV cameras ?
Tips: 
Longer Run=more Voltage Drop
Thinner wire(higher gauge)=more Voltage Drop
Larger Amps(more powerful camera)=more Voltage Drop
Higher source voltage=Less Voltage Percentage Drop
