Description
Beginning in April 2011, new Prosilica GC cameras shipped from the Canadian manufacturing location support an extended input power voltage range of 5-25 VDC. Existing customers are not affected by this capability and can continue to use the same power source. New customers that prefer a higher input voltage,
such as 24 VDC can now use this to power the camera.
Voltage range
Current
5-25 VDC
Cameras shipped before 2011-Apr-01
5-16 VDC
How to determine if my camera offers the extended input power voltage range
The serial number is used to identify cameras that can be powered using 5-16 VDC and cameras that support 5-25 VDC. If last five characters of the camera serial number are ≥ 08XXX, camera can support the
extended input power voltage range (5-25 VDC). All cameras with serial numbers from 02-XXXXX-06000 to
02-XXXXX-07999 are limited to 5-16 VDC.

WARNING
Supplying 17 VDC or more to the power input of cameras that do not support the extended
input power voltage range will damage the camera. This failure is not covered under warranty.
