The Packet Power Hub requires a power source and connection via Ethernet cable to the data network on which the non-Packet Power devices reside. 

Power Supply

The Hub uses a standard 5V DC power supply with a 5.5 x 2.1 x 11 mm positive-on-center power jack and a 2 meter power cord that comes with a C13-compatible connector (C18) and works with most plug types including:

  • NEMA 5-15

  • CEE-7 Schuko

  • AS/NZS 3112 2000

  • BS 1363A

  • BS 546A

  • China CPCS-CCC

Contact support@packetpower.com for more options.

Power over Ethernet (PoE)

PoE is available and requires a PoE splitter that plugs into the DC jack. The Hub cannot be powered over the ethernet using the Ethernet jack. If powering using a PoE:

  • Be sure that the PoE injector source is 5V DC, not 12, 24, or 48V DC and capable of at least 4W of power

  • Splitters with voltage regulators that will drop the voltage to 5V DC are available

Hub Mounting Bracket

The Hub ships with a mounting bracket

  • The bracket is attached using a 35 mm DIN rail clip

  • Rubber bumpers on the back of the bracket can be removed to expose 0.2 inch holes that can be used for permanent mounting with mechanical fasteners

  • Orientation of the Hub is not critical
