brief summary of what I discussed and resolved with Bertl yesterday:
11:18
se6ast1an
to make the current powerboard better suited for the ABCP we decided to make a slightly modified variant called "V1"
11:18
se6ast1an
this power board will have the JTAG related components removed or not populated
11:18
se6ast1an
this gained space we will use to add a second power IN connector to the top/bottom of the board
11:18
se6ast1an
this allows us to connect a camera internal power cable to the power board
11:19
se6ast1an
https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/Beta_Power_Board
11:19
se6ast1an
this is enabling two things:
11:19
se6ast1an
-) an additional PCB at the back of the stack that converts 12V -> 5V
11:19
se6ast1an
and thus enables us to use 12V fans
11:20
se6ast1an
and add a power on/off button and potentially a status LED to the CP enclosure
11:20
se6ast1an

11:20
se6ast1an
This power converter board will be screwed to the back of the enclosure: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Beta/Enclosures#Power_Converter_Board
11:21
se6ast1an
it has space for up to 6mm high components and will also connect to a metal power barrel jack at the back of the camera

i wonder how difficult it is to get barrel jack connectors that have sort of a screw around the connector, so that the connector can't be accidentally unplugged. thinking of the power connector on the arturia audiofuse 8pre
12:22
felix_
or maybe a mini xlr connector could be an option?

se6ast1an
not difficult, there are many types
12:29
se6ast1an
do you mean a "screw" or a barrel jack with a nut?
12:30
se6ast1an
ah you mean that the connector locks to the jack right?
12:30
felix_
the latter
12:32
felix_
https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/AudioFuse8P--arturia-audiofuse-8pre the second and third picture in the picture gallery of the device might make that a bit clearer
12:39
se6ast1an
yeah I get the idea now
12:39
se6ast1an
these connectors are indeed much rarer
12:39
se6ast1an
and also the matching power supplies
12:44
felix_
yeah, there are probably easier obtainable connectors; was only an example of how that could be improved
12:45
felix_
what do commercial/proprietary cameras use as power connector?
12:46
felix_
if those use something easy enough to obtain with a voltage that also works for the beta, that might be worth a look as well
12:50
se6ast1an
barrel jacks are pretty standard
