Overview

If you want to power EAGLE (that can power all other connected devices) and use it from a fixed station such as an observatory, you can connect it to an AC adapter power supply. This 12V power supply comes with a screw connector for EAGLE on one side and a plug for the socket on the other (compatible with 100 to 240V).

Description

The AC adapter for EAGLE is available in two versions: 5A and 12A. Choose the one that best suits your needs based on the power requirements of accessories that are powered by EAGLE.

The 12A version has a slightly higher voltage (12.8V instead of the standard 12V) because when you are powering from the EAGLE many accessories with high current consumption, you can see a slight decrease in voltage which, in this way, it is perfectly balanced.

For example, if you want to use a cooled CCD camera (that usually requires a lot of Amps) we advice you to select the 12A version. If you use a uncooled DSLR camera, you can use the 5A version. Let's see some example, considering maximum power consumption for every element connected and powered to the EAGLE:

Example setup 1 - low power consumption system

Let's see an example, considering maximum power consumption for every element connected and powered through the EAGLE CORE:

- EAGLE CORE: maximum power consumption 0.5A (average power consumption: 0.3A)
- DSLR or mirrorless camera: power consumption 0 (powered from internal battery of the camera)
- SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6 SynScan mount: maximum power consumption 3A (average power consumption: 1A)
- Guide camera: QHY5L-II mono: power consumption 0 (powered from EAGLE USB port) 

Total maximum power consumption is 3.5A so the 12V 5A power unit is perfect for this astrophotography setup.

Please note: the 12V 5A AC adapter is not the power unit we suggest for the use with EAGLE2/EAGLE3/EAGLE4. For these units we suggest the use of the 12,8V 14A AC adapter.


Example setup 2 - high power consumption system

  • EAGLE: maximum power consumption 1A (average power consumption: 0.6A)
  • Cooled CCD camera: maximum power consumption 4A (average power consumption: 3A)
  • SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6 SynScan mount: maximum power consumption 2A (average power consumption: 1A)
  • Guide camera: QHY5L-II mono: power consumption 0 (powered from EAGLE USB port)

Total maximum power consumption: 7A. For this system we suggest you the 12A power adapter.
