ASICAP camera power draw

Post by Great Bear » Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:39 pm

Hi. If I use ASICAP and connect to a tablet, and the camera has cooling, will the camera draw power for the cooling?

Regards

I think it should be optional, so you can turn fan on and off. And perhaps adjustable fan speed / temperature control. I'd be worried that cooling would empty the battery of a tablet or phone.

Have fun programming 8-)

Great idea,
However, Our fan currently does not support control speed.
