Which Power Supply Do I need?
If the device shows 802.3af or “12v, PoE” on the data sheet this means that the device uses 12 volts when powered from a transformer and 48 volts when powered via Ethernet. For 802.3at devices, select a 56 volt power supply. 24 volts is used for Microtik, Open-Mesh, and most Ubiquiti devices. Consult your data sheet or use our Find-A-PoE search if you’re not certain.
How many watts should I budget?
Most IP phones and PoE cameras use less than 10 watts per device, and a power budget of 10 watts per port power supply will be sufficient for most applications. 120 watts power supplies are recommended for WiFi Access Points. Consult your device specs if you’re not certain.
