10 Watts of USB
power over Ethernet
Product Description - WS-POE-5v-USB
This device provides a low cost solution for delivering power to a USB device over 328ft of network cable. This scheme
allows power to be carried on 10/100 networks over the spare, unused pairs of a CAT5, CAT5E, CAT6 or CAT7 Ethernet
network cable. The source power is any supply from 10v to 28v, and the output voltage is 5v.
Ethernet Data is available, but until there is USB to Ethernet option with the iPad – you cannot use data with iPads.
Available individually or as a kit as with power supply for 1 to 24 devices, it is a compact and cost effective power solution.
The injector inserts 24 volts DC at the source location. The higher DC voltage means the current is reduced by a factor of
5, and then carried with less loss over the spare pairs of the 10BASE-T or 100BASE-T network cable. The splitter extracts
the DC voltage from the network cable and reduces the voltage to 5v, and increases the available current by the same
factor to power the device. Different adapters are available – including USB female, microUSB, and mini.
Unlike simple injector / splitter sets, the combination of the 24v power supply and 5v converter allows you to extend the
distance with this product for this application up to 328ft or 100 meters. If used with a 12v injector, the range is 100 ft.
We also offer a kits with up to 24 injectors – so one power supply can feed up to 24 devices. These kits include the Multi
Port Passive POE injector and a power supply of either 30, 60, 120 or 240 watts.
