Our ACTAtek terminals can now support “Power Over Ethernet” to power the unit with a single network cable (Rj-45). Ideal for situations where it is difficult to locate a standard power source.
The PoE product includes two units: an Injector and a Splitter. An Injector inserts current into the unused wires in a standard network cable (pins: 4, 5, 7 and 8) allowing the cable between the Injector and the Splitter to transfer power and network signals simultaneously. The maximum distance between the Injector and Splitter can reach 100m/328ft, as defined by the IEEE 802.3 standard.(See the Solution Options.)
By eliminating the need for power cords, PoE has following benefits:
- Cost saving
The cost of deploying PoE is much lower than a traditional electrical circuit.
- Ease of network planning
The system designer has more flexibility to locate network devices. Independence from power outlets makes it easier to relocate devices or obtain the best performance, e,g: fine-tuning the RF coverage of an AP.
- Steady Wireless LAN connectivity
PoE allows a Wireless Access Point to be placed close to the antenna, thus avoiding signal loss over antenna cable.
