Photon core questions/assistance needed
« on: July 28, 2020, 04:03:22 pm »
Hello all,

I have a photon core here.  I have managed to get video out of it by following the pinout on the documentation available online (Indigo/Photon data).  I used 12v wall wart for power.  It provides a nice image despite imperfections on the lens. 

1- The top of the aluminum housing just above the lens gets rather warm after the unit has been on for an hour or so.  Is this normal?  I have not yet measured power consumption but I have allowed it to run for several hours at a time and it seems to be reliable despite it getting warm, still provides a good image. 

2- Never mind, I figured out the serial connection. 

Thanks all.
