esp32cam 5v power from expantionboard/duex 5



  • so i ordered 2 esp32cam moduels just because they are able to output jpg stream to have a webcam on my printer to be able to look at them when im not in the room.
    is it safe to run a esp32cam that draw maximum of 310ma 5v or is there another source on the duet that are more sutible?
    1 of the printers will run a duet wifi 1.02 + duex 5
    1 and one just runs a duet wifi 1.03

    tried to find a suitable answer. but could not find any



  • the total 5v is what matters, but if the esp is the only additional 5v load its not a problem. there is just the one 5v source regardless of where you connect to on the duet (albeit there is a little difference in the length and width of the track, but for 300mA it doesn't matter).

    what i can find by google
    Turn off the flash lamp:180mA@5V; Turn on the flash lamp and turn on the brightness to the maximum:310mA@5V; Deep-sleep: Minimum power consumption can be achieved 6mA@5V; Moderm-sleep: Minimum up to 20mA@5V; Light-sleep: Minimum up to 6.7mA@5V

    but i will remove the ledlamp as i dont need it so 180ma should be the load 😁
