Wireless Camera Question

When I connected the wireless camera to EZ-B, the fuse between the heat sinks burnt out... I guess it might be due to the some wrong connections... What should be the connections for the wireless camera.. As I imported the kit, the battery from the camera was removed... How should I supply the power from EZ-B and make it work?


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.

Red to where the battery + went. Black to where the battery - went.
Can I connect a 9v battery to the camera?
United Kingdom
Good god no. 5v from a digital port is pretty much the limit.
United Kingdom
Most certainly not it can be powered by the EZ-B board using a servo lead that you cut and solder to where the battery went
