    Hello everyone, I have a question to make sure that I'm not doing anything wrong, I haev a camera that has 24 volts and it  is protected with a fuse 6A, it is 150 watts. The cable must be extended 20 meter longer farther. Is that correct that I have to take a 2.5 mm2 cable ?

    20 meters further than what distance?  With just the numbers you have there it seems 2.5 mm2 cable is too small-- I get a 2 volt drop which is significant from 24 v-- 8 % drop'

     

    What tolerance does the camera have?
