The ASIAIR Pro is the second generation of ASIAIR WiFi camera controllers and is packed full of advanced features! Based on user feedback, the ZWO ASIAIR Pro is designed specifically so ZWO ASI camera owners will have an excellent user experience!

Now housed in a CNC machined aircraft grade aluminum body, the ASIAIR Pro has 64 GB of built-in space and a 64 GB U-Disk. This gives the ASIAIR Pro a total 128 GB worth of storage! You can also use any size, user supplied storage device with the camera controller. ZWO's ASIAIR Pro also now has hardware based on the PI4 board and OS has been rewritten for the platform. USB3 is now standard for the PI4 board. Not only that, but the the PI4 has 4 GB of RAM. This, coupled with the new CPU, means that the Pro version is 30% faster than the PI3.

Not only has the housing been redesigned for protection against the elements and wear and tear, the housing now has mounts so it can be installed on a finder foot, then a finder or guide scope can be mounted to the ASIAIR Pro. Talk about integration! Additionally, the ASIAIR Pro comes with a DSLR shutter control line that can be used to control the snap socket on many of the ZWO cameras.

With a simple power management system, with 4 DC 12V @ 5A outlets, the ASIAIR Pro can be controlled from the ASIAIR app, and some of the ports can be PWM controlled for dew controllers. The minimum voltage is 11.5V and the max supported current is 6A. Please note that exceeding 6A may cause overheating. The voltage and current power outputs are 12V @ 3A, and the port type is 2.1 mm x 5.5 mm center positive.

 The ASIAIR Pro is compatible with the all ZWO ASI cameras, including the ASI 533 and ASI 2600. It is even compatible with ZWO devices like the EAF! The software included with the ASIAIR Pro are Live Stack, Automater Meridian Flip, and more! The ASIAIR app can be downloaded to iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices.

1. Power out/inputs
DC [email protected] (Min voltage is 11.5V; Max supported current is 6A).
with 4 output ports; 12V input is recommended and do not to exceed 6A, too high current will cause overheat problem.
The voltage and current of power outputs are [email protected]
The port type for the power outputs is 2.1*5.5mm center positive.

2. Storage
The 32GB TF card comes with the ASIAIR PRO providing 20GB of memory. 
Also, a 64GB U-Disk comes with it. 
But also you can use any size of your own storage device.
 
3. How can the ASIAIR Pro be mounted?
We redesigned the case to make it mountable simply by attaching it to the dovetail bar on your scopes.
 
4. The ASIAIR PRO case is made by the aluminum with the CNC tech.
After our many tests, this material has virtually no affects on WiFi signal.
the degree of heating of the case during work depends on the power consumption,
This new type of metal casing will surely help to dissipate heat.
 
5. About the software
New ASIAIR PRO has amazing features such as Live Stack, Automate Meridian Flip etc. 
 
The ASIAIR app is iOS/iPadOS/Android first and only so far, 
but through some emulators for Apple technology, you can try to run the app on these platforms.
