A customer recently contacted us with the following questions regarding powering security cameras and outdoor housings:
Hey there I have a question about the PSPRO-AC-18 Distributed Power Supply for 18 Security Surveillance Cameras 9 Amp you have there on your website. Does this power supply box power both your CCD Cameras and the heated outdoor cameras? I see its 24V , So with this unit, can I power 18 box cameras and 18 outdoor enclosures with heaters? Or is it just for 18 cameras Period and i have to buy another box to power the heaters?
CCTV Camera Pros answered:
That PSPRO-AC-18 power supply box is not made for the heater blower housings because the housings require more output per channel that that power box provides. However, the PSPRO-AC-4HB is the one that works with the heater blower housings and that item can be found here:
Most box cameras that go in these housings are dual voltage (all of the ones that CCTV Camera Pros sells are dual voltage) which means that you can also use an AC power supply source to power the camera. If the cameras that you are using are dual voltage or AC powered, then you can piggy back the power supply for the cameras off of the same power supply as the housing by using a small power cable to connect the housing power supply terminals to the camera's power terminals.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
