Single 48V PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector is a device that enables power and data to be transmitted over a single Ethernet cable to network devices such as IP cameras, wireless access points, and VoIP phones. The injector is typically used in situations where the network switch or router does not have PoE capabilities.
The injector connects to an AC power source and to a non-PoE enabled switch or router via an Ethernet cable. The injector then injects power onto the Ethernet cable that is sent to the PoE-enabled device, allowing it to receive both power and data over the same cable.
A single 48V PoE injector is designed to provide power up to 15.4 watts, which is the standard for IEEE 802.3af PoE. However, there are also 48V PoE injectors that can provide up to 30 watts of power, which is the standard for IEEE 802.3at PoE+.
It's important to note that the injector must match the power requirements of the PoE-enabled device it's powering. If the injector does not provide enough power, the device may not function properly. Conversely, if the injector provides too much power, it could potentially damage the device.
Overall, a single 48V PoE injector is a useful device for providing power and data to PoE-enabled devices in situations where a PoE-enabled switch or router is not available.
