The specs for the cameras just say 12V or PoE, they don't give a voltage range. Can anyone tell me what the true voltage range is? I would like to connect them to a 12V battery and have a solar panel charge the battery. Due to that the voltage could vary from 12.3 up to 14.7. Camera models I have are below.Thank youRLC-420-5MPRLC-410-5MPRLC-810A
I believe you will find that the RLC-410-5MP and RLC-420_5MP have TWO methods of power:(1) through PoE, which is typically 48 volts through the ethernet cable, or (2) with a 12v (DC) power supply through a separate power connector.If you already have the cameras, please take a look at the connectors which "break out" of the pigtail cable that comes from the camera. I believe you will see three:(1) ethernet jack(2) "reset" switch(3) 12V power connector.I think you are "good to go"
Thanks, I am aware of that. I have some running 48V POE and some 12V via the bullet. What I'm asking is what is the voltage range of each of those? For the POE power I'm guessing it's the standard 802.3af voltage range (37V to 57V) although maybe it accepts lower voltage. For the 12V input what is the min and max voltage that can be supplied? Does it all feed into the same circuit so I could supply say 10V through to 57V to either?
PoE voltage for the camera is IEEE 802.3af / 48V Active. For the power adapter, it uses 12V 1/2A.
Thanks, that I know, that's what's written in the specs. But what is the voltage RANGE? It can't possibly require exactly 12V and explode if it gets 12.1V, it must have a working range. Most things are fairly tolerant of a small change in voltage.
Sorry that we only have this data. Also, it is not suggested to power on the camera by the battery, because it may damage the machine.
There has to be some better information than that. It would be impossible to produce cameras without this being written down somewhere. Isn't there some detailed technical docs?
