    Looking for a good camera? - Trendnet 110 wireless cam & teardown

    Per a couple of requests I disassembled my new wifi cam and took some pics of the process. There are also measurements of each important piece in each pic.

    The camera was purchased from Amazon.com here:
    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Wireless-Internet-Camera-TV-IP110W/dp/B00125KR1E/"]Amazon.com: TRENDnet Wireless Internet Camera Server (TV-IP110W): Electronics[/ame]


    [edit] Thanks to their great support, the latest version of Roborealm supports this camera out of he box.

    The camera is held together by two small phillips screws on the back top of the housing. The bottom of the housing has clips that keeps the bottom together.

    Removing the front of the chassis will reveal 3 boards. The front board is the camera on a connector that connects to a carrier board. The wireless card is in a socket on the back of the carrier board. The carrier board has a small breakout board on the bottom that has the power and ethernet connectors. There is also a UTC117 regulator on the small breakout board. The datasheet for the regulator can be found here:

    This is the breakout board. The electronics are on the other side.

    Here are the weights without the housing: (Weights taken with a Centech 93543 digital scale.)
    Power/Connector board: 20.3 grams
    wifi card + camera + carrier board : 64.3 grams
    Camer only: 17.7 grams
    Wifi card + carrier card : 46.6 grams
    complete camera: 84.7 grams

    Hopefully this is helpful to someone!

    Great pictures! Thanks!

    It looks like the camera board could be mounted separately via a cable of some sorts? You know what type of pins its using (spacing)?

    Re: Teardown of Trendnet 110 wireless cam

    The camera connectors are on approximately 0.05" centers. It uses 2 dual row headers, 0ne is 24 pins, the other is 20 pins.

    The power/connector board uses one dual row header on 0.1" centers. It has 24 pins. It looks like the easiest thing to do would be to put the power board on a cable and leave the camera on the carrier board.

    Re: Teardown of Trendnet 110 wireless cam

    Probably the same spacing as on our Airlinks. They are either 1.25 or 1.27 mm. It's a challange to find connectors with the proper number of pins in stock. The 24 pin connectors might be a problem, but the 20 are easy with Digikey. Our Airlinks are 26 pins. I ended up ordering some 30's 'cause thats all that was available at the moment. We'll see how they fit in a day or two.

    Thanks for sharing your findings Jes!
    Good information to know. I'm just wondering how to make it look good on a hexapod though..

    The pictures are great but I would recommend a bit smaller size, had to use horisontal scroll on my old laptop.

    Total weight of about 85 gram wasn't bad at all.

    Video Latency test:

    The cam looks a bit darker than it really is here. the angle I'm shooting versus added to the CFL light in my office makes for a pretty drab image.

    I was wondering. I just searched for this camera on Amazon and there were two cameras that came up. One of them said TRENDnet Wireless Internet Camera Server (TV-IP110).
    The other said TRENDnet Wireless Internet Camera Server (TV-IP110W).
    So I was wondering what difference the W made between the two. Besides about $ 40 that is.



    Ok never mind.

    One more question. Is the board that lens is on the actual camera. And if the round part cant be taken off the board what are the dimensions of that board?

    Hey Gary, how did those connectors work out for you? I'd like to multi-mount my cam board remotely from the power board as well.

    Manny,
    Lets just say that making a cable with the ultra small connectors did not fit within my skill set. I gave up and just mounted the camera as a complete unit.
