Product Details

  • If you want to power EAGLE and use it from a fixed station such as an observatory, you can connect it to an AC adapter power supply. This 12.8V, 14A power supply (compatible with 100 to 240V) comes with 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 many accessories with high power consumption from the EAGLE, you can see a small tension drop that 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 advise you to select the 14A version. If you use an 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 the 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.

Works perfectly

Running the Eagle in a Nexdome so needed an ac connection and this fits the bill perfectly.
