POE switch requirements for Slim 13E active system

Post by will.b » Sun Sep 29, 2019 6:42 pm

Hello,

I would like to find a lightweight POE switch to run a Slim 13e active system and would like to know the power draw of the active components.

a) What is the POE power requirement for each Slim 13e camera?

b) Does the active base station require a POE port?

c) If the active base station requires a POE port, what is its power requirement?

Thank you,
William

Hello William,

Thank you for reaching out to the community.

Each Slim 13E requires 8 watts through PoE.
The Active Base Station also requires PoE, but its draw should be less than 4 watts.

If you would like an example of a low profile PoE switch, you might like to check out the 8 port switch that we sell on our website.

We hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Best,
Steven
