Connecting Limelight Camera

Hello we just received our limelight camera and are trying to wire it to test. We see it says connect it to your pdb, but we are unsure what slot. It says to add a 5 amp breaker but where do we put that?

Re: Connecting Limelight Camera

If they say to use a 5 amp breaker It most likely means to connect it in the same fashion you would connect a motor controller, but with a 5 amp breaker instead of the normal 20 or 30 for motor controllers.

Re: Connecting Limelight Camera

You can just use a 20 amp breaker if you want. It will work fine. We should update the docs.

Re: Connecting Limelight Camera

We are struggling to figure out how to connect the Limelight we bought.

The docs don't say much. Need help with the power and communications connection.

A picture of a typical connection scenario would be great!

If you connect to the PDP for the power, then just use Ethernet for the comm?

Re: Connecting Limelight Camera

We are figuring some of this out.

I can see from this video that they connected the Limelight to the PDP and also used Ethernet for the comm.

but for the flashing you use the micro USB ?

Thanks
