Power On and Power Off

Whenever the camera LED is green, it is safe to power down the camera. This is done by removing the power cable. There is no On/Off switch.

The edgertronic camera power requirements are as follows:

  • SC1 series - 12 VDC @ 1.5A
  • SC2 series - 12 VDC @ 2.5A
  • 2.5/5.5mm center positive coaxial jack

The following power supplies are approved for SC1 series cameras:

  • 120/240V AC DC Adapter: 12V 1.5A SL Power MENB1020A1203F01
  • 120/240V AC DC Adapter: 12V 2.5A SL Power ME30A1203F01
  • 120/240V AC DC Adapter: 12V 2.5A SL Power TE30A1203F01

The following power supplies are approved for SC2 series cameras:

  • 120/240V AC DC Adapter: 12V 2.5A SL Power ME30A1203F01
  • 120/240V AC DC Adapter: 12V 2.5A SL Power TE30A1203F01

Power Supply Compatibility

SC1 and SC2 series cameras now ship with the ME30A1203F01 power supply. Previously, SC1 series cameras shipped with the MENB1020A1203F01 power supply. If you are having problems with your camera, verify that you are using the correct power supply.
Damages to the camera due to reversed polarity, incorrect voltage or incompatible power sources are NOT covered under warranty.

Portable Battery Packs and Inverters

We use and highly recommend the Paul C Buff Vagabond Mini Inverter http://www.paulcbuff.com/vm120.php
Matthew Stengler has good luck using a RAVPower lithium-ion polymer external power pack.

Early camera warning

Important - Cameras with MAC addresses 00-1B-C5-09-60-44 and below

We have discovered a problem with early cameras if a power source other than the MENB1020A1203F01 AC adapter (listed above) is used. If you use a different power source (Car Adapter, direct wired battery etc) an internal, protection fuse will blow, requiring the camera to be returned for repair.

If you need to power the camera remotely, plug the supplied AC adapter into an inverter.

This problem applies only to cameras with MAC addresses 00-1B-C5-09-60-44 and below.

Cameras with MAC addresses 00-1B-C5-09-60-45 and above

The above mentioned problem has been fixed on cameras with MAC addresses 00-1B-C5-09-60-45 and above. If you have a camera with a MAC address of 00-1B-C5-09-60-45 or above, you can use the following additional supplies:

  • Car Adapter: 12V 5A MPD ZA5074-2.5
  • Portable Battery Pack Bescor MM-12ATM

Damages to the camera due to reversed polarity, incorrect voltage or incompatible power sources are NOT covered under warranty. That said, should you feel the need to make your own cable, you can use the following locking plug at your own risk:

  • Switchcraft 761K
