Mount \ Power + Comms


Recommended Posts


Looking for some opinion on whether this solution will work to power & provide USB connectivity to my mount ...

For USB ports one of these https://linitx.com/product/carnetix-cnxp5usb-dcpowered-4port-usb-hub/13024

For Power Distribution one of these http://www.radioworld.co.uk/west_mountain_rigrunner/rigrunner_4005_horizontal_58312-1041

For Power one of these http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-97w-dc-fixed-voltage-bench-power-supply-xm21x

I am thinking I can power the USB Hub via one of the distributions off the rigrunner.

Should work in principle ?

Must have deep pockets....

for USB Hub http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001UJH8F0?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00 

for splitting power  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/380877190000?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

and the PSU itself, I went for the switched mode one http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/power-pax-120w-switched-mode-dc-fixed-voltage-12v-power-supply-n96ju

I then use down converters as needed to drive focusers\cameras\heaters etc.
