    Hello everyone, I got a Cascade 512F Camera recently. This is the PDF: http://www.photometrics.com/support/pdfs/manuals/CascadeManual.pdf
    But it doesn't include any accessory, I already managed to get a Lens for it after read a lot on the internet. Now I have problems with the power supply and DATA I/O, I want to know what model/type of the power supply and PCI card.
    I sent 2 support requests to the manufacture and got the following replies:
    For Cascade 512F camera running under Windows XP/32 we recommended to be used PCI-LVDS-CARD(part number), currently unavailable on stock.
    Here is the quote on the LVDS camera communication cable:
    Part Number: 37-071-001
    Description: CBL;DATA/PWR;MDR-20
    Qty: 1
    Price: $150.00 USD
    Quote for the Power supply:
    Part Number: 07-026-008
    Description: ROHS;PWR SUPPLY;12V150W;DESKTOP W/Switch
    Qty: 1
    Price: $400.00 USD
    Quote for the PCIe LVDS card:
    The new Photometrics PCI-Express LVDS interface card will provide 64-bit support for current Photometrics LVDS-based cameras. See
    http://www.photometrics.com/products/datasheets/PCI-Express-LVDS-Interface-Card-Datasheet.pdf
    Here is the link for the Photometrics computer recommendations document.
    Note: you will need to connect power from PC power supply to PCIe card. Card has an IDE connector for power connection. Y- Cable and/or sata to IDE adaptor may be required. See attached picture.
    You will also need the new PVCAM camera driver, PVCAM 2.9.3 or higher available on our website for free download and use:
    http://www.photometrics.com/support/downloads/
    Part Number: PCIE-CARD-LVDS
    Description: PCI-Express LVDS card for Photometrics cameras.
    Price: $1600.00 USD each

    I cannot find any used ones on ebay, and the official ones are too expensive, I'm thinking of use a universal power supply with a Lemo connector, but the PDF didn't tell what type of Lemo is it, and I have no idea about the card. Could anyone help me? Thanks.

    Hello,

    There are pictures of the connectors on page 47 of the PDF he posted in his openings post (page 36 of the manual pages).

    While the manual shows a bit of information there are a few different types of LEMOs.. A real picture will help greatly in determining which one..
    Of course the OP could just go look at the LEMO site too and match it up..
    Pictures right here.. Find the matching one and order it up from digikey/mouser/newark or whomever distributes for lemo

    Thank you, I already looked at the site and that's why I'm asking (I thought there's only 1 kind of Lemo connector), I don't have a male connector, but if you want a picture of the camera except the one in the PDF, this is it:
