I have a few analog box cameras in heated housings that are 24v ac powered. I have a Cat6 line run also to these same camera locations. I want to install some IP cameras in the same locations. I can power the IP cameras with Poe, but not the housings. Can I run 2 heater/blower housings and 1 analog box camera with the one 18ga power wire? Also, what is the power consumption (watts or amps) of the heater blower units?

No. That would not work. You could power 1 heater/blower housing and the box camera, but you should be certain that the camera is designed to work with 24v.

Could you give a little more information? The analog camera and housing is all ready installed and yes the camera is 24v ac. They work fine.

Is the issue not enough watts or is it not a big enough power wire?

 

What is the power usage of the heated housing?

Heater would be about 5Watts and the blower 3Watts.n It is recommended to run one wire per camera so you will power the heated/blower as well of the camera (if is 24v) at the same time. We are not against to power up multiple things with one cable, then thing is that we have tried before and we end up with power voltage drop. 

 

Thanks
