Max Power Consumption 8.4W per manual
« on: August 11, 2016, 09:20:58 PM »

Does anyone know if the 8.4w consumption is based on the motor running for pan and tilt? What is the baseline power consumption. I am a bit surprised power consumption is so high. Thanks in advance.

OK - I see you also found this.


You need something like this:


I have a couple around my place (not necessarily this model)... just to check desktop CPU power usage... It should report close enough to the pull on the camera you are testing.
I'm not sure how dumb downed Radio Shack is these days - (are they still around?)  - but they should be able to sell you a power adapter with an interchangeable  plug that fits...

Ya radio shack is still around.

You can find more exact power adapters from D-Link. Just ask. I wouldn't risk swapping adapters that are not of the same spec as designed. Your HW though.

Good Luck.
