Hello everybody, I have received a couple of weeks ago after 2 months of waiting my equipment.
All is fine and checked and tonight is going to be first light.
I have got as well from the dealer and AC-DC adapter which is rated at 12v 7A output.
The Azeq6 mount manual says:
“Output Voltage: DC 11V (minimum) to DC 16V (maximum). Voltage not in this range might cause permanent damage to the motor controller or the hand controller.
• Output Current: 4A for power supply with 11V output voltage, 2.5A for power supply with 16V output voltage.
• Do not use an un-regulated AC-to-DC adapter. When choosing an AC adapter, it is recommended to use a switching power supply with 15V output voltage and at least 3A output current.
• If the power voltage is too low, the motor controller will stop the motors automatically.”
“Power LED: The power LED serves as a power-on indicator and provides other statuses.
1. Steady on: Power voltage is normal.
2. Slow flashing: Power voltage is low; continuing to operate the mount may damage the battery (if a 12V lead-acid battery is in use).
3. Fast flashing: Power voltage is extremely low; continuing to operate the mount may damage the battery and the motor controller in the mount.”
Now when I go on the Synscan Controller to check the voltage it says 10,9 volts.
But the mount slews without problem and NO flashing Led of any sorts.
I bought also a lithium power bank/jump starter from Hummer brand with capacity of 12000mAh (44,4wh) and output port delivering 12v 10A, (details attached in the image) the same is happening on the synscan controller, but the mount again has no problem.
I wonder if when I check the voltage on the synscan is saying 10,9 just because is just tracking and not pulling much power so keeping the voltage low or if the voltage information on the synscan is not really precise and accurate.
another test I did was to charge the power bank fully and the synscan hand controller read 11,5 volts.
any thoughts ??
thanks for any answer
