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,8 14V power supply (compatible with 100 to 240V) comes a 2,5 meters extension cable and EU (Schuko), UK and USA plugs. When used with the included extension, the power unit cable is 5 meters long.


The 14A version has a slightly higher voltage (12.8V instead of the standard 12V) because when you power from the EAGLE many accessories with high power consumption, you can see a small tension drop that, this way, will always be just above 12V.

For example, if you want to use a cooled CCD camera (that usually requires a lot of Amps) we advice you to select the 14A version. If you use a uncooled DSLR or mirrorless 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

  • EAGLE: maximum power consumption 1A (average power consumption: 0.6A)
  • Uncooled DSLR 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: 4A. For this system we suggest you the 5A power 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 3A (average power consumption: 1A)
  • Guide camera QHY5L-II mono: power consumption 0 (powered from EAGLE USB port)
  • Dew heater: power consumption 1A (powered from EAGLE dew heater port)

Total maximum power consumption: 9A. For this system we suggest you the 14A power adapter.
