Environment

IP devices that utilize PoE

Cause

Uncertainty in cabling and power supply output parameters in networks providing Power over Ethernet utilization.

Resolution

Given the type of cable used, length, supply voltage, and wattage requirement of receiving devices you can use web-based tools such as Line Loss calculator for Power over Ethernet ( POE ) to determine if there is acceptable power loss.

 

For PoE extenders such as the Single Channel PoE Extender POE1XT Series, see our website at Power Over Ethernet (PoE), Indoor & Outdoor Power Supplies.
