HelloWhat is the voltage range for RLC-523WA?I need to use 10 meters DC extension cable which is 20 AWG / 0.5mm^2. At 2 amps this will cause 1,33 V voltage drop. Only specs I can find for RLC-523WA are DC 12V 2A, <24W. I don't know if this is for the DC power supply or is this what the actual camera will require?

Hello,The voltage range for the RLC-523WA camera is not specified in the information provided. The mentioned specifications of DC 12V 2A and <24W are likely for the DC power supply required to operate the camera rather than the voltage range the camera itself can handle.
@user_713403785318571_713403785318571 Use a lower AWG cable so that the voltage drop will be less. 12 and 10 would be fine.
@joseph_1979 I'll test the 10 meter 20 AWG cable because it is the thickest ready made cable I could found. If I want eg. 18 AWG cable I need to buy the cable and the conenctors separately.
@user_713403785318571_713403785318571 Try to get it from a trusted company which uses quality copper. The power quoted is the nominal value for the camera.
@user_713403785318571_713403785318571 I tested two 10 meter cables.1) A 22 AWG cable from Aliexpress. This is thin and feels light. Cost 7.60 €. According to specs the cable is rated for 3 amps. My RLC-523WA works ok ultil IR lights are turned on. When the IR lights are on PTZ does not function properly. 2) A 20 AWG cable from a local store. This feels much heavier and is thicker. Cost 9.50 €. The cable is rated for 2 amps. Everything works ok. IR lights won't cause any problems.The two tested cables side by side.
Considering the specifications provided for the RLC-523WA camera, which indicate a DC 12V 2A power requirement, it's essential to take into account the voltage drop caused by the 10 meters of 20 AWG / 0.5mm^2 extension cable. The calculated 1.33 V voltage drop at 2 amps could potentially impact the camera's performance.
The information given does not say what the voltage range is for the RLC-523WA camera. The specs of DC 12V 2A and 24W are probably for the DC power source that the camera needs to work, not for the voltage range that the camera can handle.
