ASI2600 no exposures over 2 second

Post by Pogo » Wed Jul 15, 2020 5:19 pm

Hi all,

I just took delivery of a ASI2600 mc pro. I installed all the software and drivers and everything worked fine. It connects easily to my computer and is recognized by all software that I have. However if I take a test shot over 2 seconds, it will do so until about 0,2 seconds before the end and than the camera is disconnected and there is no exposure shown. I can reconnect and start over. It will work fine for everything under 2 seconds.
I have a second generation Surface pro that I have tested so far and I have not powered the cooler. I will try with the ASIAIR later today to see what happens with it.
Any idea what is going on?

Ok I posted this too soon. Problem solved. Appearantly my computer's usb does not output enough current. I connected the camera to a 12v powersource and that solved the problem. I'll just leave this post just in case somebody else runs into this problem.

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi Peter, thanks for your post, yes, ASI2600MC Pro needs 12V power supply to ensure its working.
