This camera can run without external power supply in normal mode

we recommends 12V at 3A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply(2.1*5.5, center positive)

Battery from 9-15V is also suitable for cooler power supply


Now we have released the ASI1600 V3(right one) which we did a lot of mechincal improvments:

-Fix front cover with screws to avoid unscrew the cover off by mistake.

also this design can transfer the heat from the heat sink to the front window better to avoid dew problem happen.

-Add the air socket, so you can attach desiccant tube to make the sensor chamber dry again when needed.


Here is a test result of the Power consumption of the cooling system

224 T vs I 20150803b

This camera comes with a removable M42 extender

The back focus distance (optical path) is only 6.5mm without this extender
