Critical Limitation of ASIair Pro

Post by jwaters125 » Thu Feb 20, 2020 12:35 am

Just found out about this limitation. From your website...

"Note:Must use an external 12V power supply to power ASI6200/ASI2600/ASI533 cameras"

I several others on CN view this as a showstopper. Its likely a power / wattage related HW problem. This limitation needs to be addressed ASAP.

Yes, these cameras need external power supply to enable the cooling.

The ASIair Pro needs to have a dedicated controllable 12 volt port that can deliver the necessary current.
