The below may vary depending on the camera. The below is based on our 4K UHD Camera.
- The Camera draws around 8 watts
- The 4G Router draws around 4 watts
The combined draw can change slightly when the camera is in standby mode or sending an image. When we tested the 4K system it was using 10 watts in standby and 12 watts when sending an image.
OUR UK PARTNERS HAVE DEPLOYED THE FOLLOWING SOLAR SYSTEM WITH SUCCESS
- 1 x 200 Watt Panel
- 1 x 110ah Battery – Leisure / Deep Cycle
- 1 x Solar charge controller
- 1 x Pole, Ground or Roof Mount
- 1 x Required red and black solar cable, usually 2.5mm
If your own solar camera project is overseas you may be able to deploy a smaller panel. Consult with your local solar supplier and provide them with the above power draw.
SMART POWER TO THE CAMERA = FLEXIBILITY & SIMPLICITY !
Although this is a Solar system running off-grid, you can still power the camera with a supplied outdoor cat5e data cable. We include ( and can mount in our 4G battery box ) a DC input POE switch. This will allows you to position the camera 100’s of feet from the Solar Set-up.
You will need a cabinet to house your Battery & our hardware in. You can procure your own or we can build you a 4G Battery Box. This would be an IP66, Steel Box measuring 210mm x 500 mm x 400 mm. This ia available for UK customers only. Your Networking & Cellular hardware would be DIN Rail mounted and your 12V Battery would fit at the bottom. The metal cabinet would be pre-drilled and cable glands would be mounted for you.
Please note: Burgess Technologies does not employ registered electricians or install solar. The above are hints and tips we have picked up from partners instaling our system with solar. We have had solar projects running for over 2 years now which have passed through winters with no issues.
