This device can be used to power a low power device via Ethernet cable. Please note that Ethernet cable is AWG 24 wire – quite thin. If you are powering a 5v device that needs 2 amps – the Ethernet wire will lose about 1 volt every 10 feet. You can calculate the loss from our web site at http://wifiqos.com/poe-calc.html Connect the injector to your Ethernet switch, router or hub and existing power supply. Any Ethernet cable will work. Since cameras operate at about 2 mb/s max – even CAT-5 cable will work fine up to 328 ft. Connect the remote end to a splitter, and connect the output of the splitter to the device.
Do not use with a PoE Switch.
