The Density sensor is designed to run easily and securely with standard IT networking equipment. The device is powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE) — specifically using the 802.3af (PoE) standard.
You can also power the device using a 15.4W PoE injector, which provides up to 15.4 watts of power from a standard wall outlet. The injector option can be helpful in the following situations:
- You don’t have PoE capable switches in your IDF or Network closet
- You are deploying the devices onto a Wifi or 4G network and don’t intend on running an ethernet cable from the switches in your network closet to each install location
