I wanted to get your opinion about roadtesting a PoE-to-USB-C Power and Data Adapter
Made by Microchip, the PoE to USB-C® Power and Data Adapter connects Internet of Things (IoT) devices with a USB-C connector to Power over Ethernet (PoE) networks, enabling you to leverage the advantages of PoE and USB-C technologies. It provides both power and data to USB-C hosts.
Here are some more facts about this product:
The PD-USB-DP60 adapter enables flexible installation of USB-C devices, removes the need for a close power outlet and resolves the issue of limited USB cable length. The PoE source can be up to 328 ft/100m from the location of the USB-C device. A single Ethernet cable is needed while delivering up to 60W of USB power at the output of the adapter.
The PD-USB-DP60 connects with small PCs/Next Unit of Computing (NUC), interactive information kiosks, smart monitors, tablets, laptops, cellphones, cameras and other USB-C powered devices consuming up to 60W. The adapter is compatible with USB2.0 and 3.1 and will automatically provide to the end device the exact amount of power it needs.
- Up to 60W output power
- Enables powering of small PCs/Next Unit of Computing (NUC), interactive information kiosks, smart monitors, tablets, laptops, cameras and other USB-C devices
- Provides power and data to USB-C Hosts
- Allows 328 ft/100m installation range
- Supports PoE Switches and Injectors from 15.4W and up to 90W
- Plug and play USB-C Power, no configuration is needed, simple to use
