Some had short-circuited
on November 4, 2013
I have had a few of these that shorted out on me. Sure it was a pain when I found the first one during installation (out of the box as it were). But if that wasn't odd enough, I have had two more do this AFTER the system had been up for awhile (one 2 weeks after installation - and another, "3 months after" installation). They were simply shorted completely upon arriving onsite when servicing them.
In most applications this may merely take out the fuse for that given camera channel, but in my case I had an added problem where my 8 Amp PSU would shutdown the whole 8-channel board in the PSU - bringing down all cameras!
Worried this may happen again at any time for all I know. I'm disappointed. Makes my camera product look bad. Others here have commented that they had issues with these too - but didn't say how they were bad really - perhaps it was a bad production - a batch that went out by mistake only???
I can only tell you my situation... a complete short of the terminals, with zero Ohms still today - when testing them after I had replaced them.
