ASI 533MC Pro

Post by Radders76 » Sat May 16, 2020 6:44 am

Is it definitely safe to power the 533MC Pro off the Asi Air Pro? I've read conflicting reports. Some say yes others say they wouldn't.

I don't want to fry my camera or Air Pro.

Can I have a Zwo answer on this if possible?

Kind Regards
Paul

Yes, it's safe.
When you finish imaging, you could turn off the power on the ASIAIR software first, then wait about 5 second, power off the ASIAIR PRO at last.

Thanks, does this include powering the cooling off the Air Pro or should that be done off a separate source?

If your cooler was powered by ASIAIR Pro, yes, this include powering the the cooling off the ASIAIR Pro.

Brill. I haven't got either the Pro or the camera yet
. I should be receiving them next week so wanted to check.

I read reports that cooling should be run off a separate 12v power source.

If I run the camera and the cooling off the Air Pro how many amps do they use?

Kind Regards

It is determined by the cooling power. It will not higher than the 3 amps which in the output on the ASIAIR PRO.

To add to this.

I now have my 533MC Pro and my Air Pro and ran the Air Pro off a 17ah power pack with the camera and the cooling connected to the Air Pro and it blew a Lynx Astro cable rated to 10amps with a 5amp blowout fuse.

We are sorry to hear that, we don't know the power used by cables produced by other manufacturers, we suggest you use our cable which comes from ASIAIR Pro.
