ASI128 Pro camera has one full frame sensor, so the power consumption (650mA@5V) is much higher than other cameras. But USB3.0 can provide 1000mA current, so ASI128 Pro can run standalone under USB3.0 host, it doesn’t need external power supply.

You need to connect the external 12v power supply if you connect the camera to USB 2.0 host which can only provide 500ma current.

Recommended cooler power supply: 12V @ 3-5A (or more) DC adapter (2.1×5.5mm, center pole positive). Also suitable: DC battery with 9-15V.

USB 2.0 HUB: can connect with various accessories, such as filter wheel, guide camera and electronic focuser, so you can manage your cable better with USB2.0 hub. There are 2 short 0.5m USB2.0 cable come with ASI128 Pro. the power of hub source from external power supply if you connect it.
