The amperage rating for a C20-CH-6 camera.

Issue

  • What is the amperage rating for a C20-CH-6 camera?
  • If I input 12VDC, what is the current draw on a C20-CH-6 camera?

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

C20-CH-6

Cause

Only the Wattage is referenced on the Spec Sheet and not the amperage rating.

Resolution

Since the C20-CH-6 camera will consume 3.5W in power, and since the equation for power is P=VA (Power = Volts * Amps), we would plug in the known values to get 3.5W=12VDC * Amps. With 3.5W/12V, we get 0.291666666~ Amps pulled by the C20-CH-6 cameras.
