Power Supply and Cables

Warning

We strongly recommend using Zivid Power Supply and Power Extension Cables with all Zivid cameras to ensure compliance with Safety and EMC emission and immunity standards. For more info, see Regulatory Information.

Zivid Power Supply

Zivid Power Supply

All Zivid cameras come with a power supply of 3.2 m in length in total. The Zivid Power Supply consists of an AC/DC adapter with an integrated DC cable (1.2 m) and a separate AC power cord (2 m). The power cord comes with EU/KOR, US/JAP, CN, or UK AC plug types.




Zivid Power Extension Cables

We also offer power extension cables in 5 m, 10 m, and 20 m options. Cables of all lengths come with a female M12 connector on one end and either a straight or angled (90 degrees) M12 connector on the other end (camera side). To order Zivid cables visit Zivid WebShop.

Tip

For lengths above 20 m, extend the AC power cable side.

Zivid Power Extension Cables

Tip

Cables with angled 90-degree connectors fit well with the Zivid On-Arm Mount.

Zivid strongly recommends that the cables are carefully checked before use or if run time errors occur. We also strongly recommended to tighten the M12 Jack screw all the way in on the camera side when setting up the camera. The Power connector needs to be screwed in completely to ensure the watertight IP rating of the camera.

Note

When using DC power extension cables For Zivid One+ cameras, ensure both the PC and the camera AC/DC adapter are supplied from the same power outlet.

Tip

Zivid Power Extension Cables are specifically designed high-quality cables suitable for robot applications.

See the Zivid Power Extension Cable Datasheet to check for relevant robustness cable specs such as static and dynamic bending radius and tensile strength. The datasheet also provides information about bend and twist tests.

Third-Party Power Supply

Warning

We strongly recommend using the Zivid Power Supply with all Zivid cameras to ensure compliance with Safety and EMC emission and immunity standards. For more info, see Regulatory Information.

Using a third-party power supply is entirely the sole responsibility of the customer.

If it is necessary to use a third-party or a custom power supply, below are some critical requirements the power supply needs to meet. These are also the specs of the Zivid Power Supply.

Input voltage

100-240 V AC

Input frequency

50-60 Hz

Output voltage

24 V DC

Output current

5 A 1

Line regulation

<± 1% of rated input voltage at full load

Rise time

≦50 ms at 100-240 V AC input with full load from 10% to 90% of output voltage

Dynamic load regulation

±5% excursion for 50%-100% or 100%-50% load change of DC output at any frequency up to 1 KHz (duty 50%)

Ripple/noise

1.5 % max of rated output

Overcurrent protection

110%-170% of rated output current

1

Depending on the internal construction of the power supply, it might be necessary to use a power supply with a higher current rating to cover inrush currents, e.g., 10 A.

Use the TE Connectivity 5 position M12 connector for connection with the Zivid Camera.

Pinout

Pin

Purpose

power-supply

1

24V DC +/- 20% (Max 5A)

2

24V DC +/- 20% (Max 5A)

3

Reserved, do not connect

Part number: 1838275-3 (Digikey: A97645-ND).

Note

The Zivid camera is protected against reverse polarity and against overheating by a thermistor that physically removes the power.

Third-Party Power (Extension) Cables

Warning

We strongly recommend using the Zivid Power (Extension) Cables with all Zivid cameras to ensure compliance with Safety and EMC emission and immunity standards. For more info, see Regulatory Information.

Using a third-party power cable is entirely the sole responsibility of the customer.

If it is necessary to use third-party or custom power cables, follow the below instructions and critical requirements the cables need to meet. Specs in the table below for wires and cable resistance are hard requirements, while outer diameter, minimum bend radius, and bending/twisting performance are Zivid recommendations.

Wires

21 AWG x 4

Cable resistance

< 40 Ohm/Km for each of the 4 conductors

Outer diameter (OD)

5.6 ± 0.3 mm

Minimum dynamic bend radius

≥ 3 x OD = 17 mm

Minimum static bend radius

≥ 5 x OD = 28 mm

Bending performance

Bend radius: 10 x OD = 56 mm
Bend angle: ± 90°
Test speed: 30 cycles per minute
Cycles: ≥ 5 million
Cycles: ≥ 3 million (counter weight = 500g)

Twisting performance

Twist distance: 50 mm
Twist angle: ± 270°
Test speed: 40 cycles per minute
Cycles: ≥ 14 million

Reverse performance

Fixed spot spacing: 50 mm
Bend angle: ± 270°
Test speed: 40 cycles per minute
Cycles: ≥ 10 million

Tensile strength

≥ 1200 N

Keep the DC power cables as short as practically possible.

Warning

The DC cables longer than 20 m are strongly not recommended.

Note

When using DC power extension cables For Zivid One+ cameras, ensure both the PC and the camera AC/DC adapter are supplied from the same power outlet.

Note

Check out the specs of out power extension cable in the Zivid Power Supply Datasheet.

When using a third-party power extension with the parameters from the table, you must use two wires for 24V and two for GND. If using custom wires, ensure that their parameters give the same or better parameters as in the table above.
