Our Rogue Series products and Router products run on 12vDC 1 amp. Our Professional Series products also run on 12vDC 1-amp. Some products come with 120vAC wall plug to 12vDC 1-amp adapters and a Cigarette Light Socket plug. Our Yacht AP DB’s run on 24vDC and should be used with the supplied PoE and wall plug adapters. Our PoE adapters are “Passive PoE”. These systems are not designed to run from any other PoE system (e.g., Router or Ethernet Switch that supplies other standards-compliant PoE). Likely those other PoE systems will never even supply power.
However, our Yacht AP DB product can run from an 802.3af compliant PoE, or the included Passive PoE and 24vDC power supply. There are two kinds of 802.3xx PoE. We have a document “PoE-802.3af-802.3at” describing these standards. Our only product that runs on a PoE Ethernet Switch (802.3af) is the Yacht AP DB. Typically, if a switch supplies PoE power, it will follow both standards and negotiate it on the wire (over the Ethernet cable connection.)
We recommend using an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) for systems that plug into 120vAC outlets. They would prevent power glitches and spikes. Direct DC – should only be done by someone qualified to make such connections. Our products need Isolated – Regulated DC power. We do offer a DC-DC Regulator should anyone need one.
