is there and plan to make a unit that run on POE it would make deployment a lot simpler i find power the limiting factor as to where i can place mine.
Please use a Passive POE cable. Many uRADMonitor users are having good results with them.
The A3 units also support a wide voltage input (6V to 28V, but not more than 28.00V!! ), so you can use a higher voltage (eg. 24V) and not care about the length of your cable.
You can also try any of the 48V to 12V 802.3af/at adapters on eBay – such as those found here: https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/m.html?_ssn=horizon_electronic&_nkw=poe+12v You’ll need one with a 5.5×2.1mm barrel jack.
This one gives you drop-downs for voltage and plug and the description says 5.5×2.1mm: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/282213516881 Not my ad, no connection to seller, etc.
I’ve used a similar one on my old Model A for years and will likely use one very soon for my A3, when I find somewhere at work that I can put it.
Would a built in POE still be needed given these excellent alternative solutions?
