Re: Maximum DC input voltage for power?

Ah yes, I had calculated 2 Ohms for 75' of 24 AWG (e.g. typical Cat5e), but I forgot that it's a round trip! This Pi is going to run a camera board and MotionEyeOS (or something similar) so I should probably budget at least 1 A for power. The key problem (that I didn't mention in the OP) is that thi...

Maximum DC input voltage for power?

Hi! I'm need to power my RPi 2 Model B over 75' of Cat5e, which means I need to crank up the DC voltage at the source to ensure ~5 V at the sink. But if I forget to crank it back down during testing, I'm worried about frying the board. What is the maximum DC voltage that the Pi will tolerate on the ...
