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

We have discovered a problem with some 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.

If you have a camera with a MAC address above 00-1B-C5-09-60-44, 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
