144W Power Supply for the WS-6 Mini

Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:46 pm

We have been using these for quite a while and with the temperatures in Phoenix, they have held up pretty well. They also just plug in which is nice.

Rory, what is the voltage reported on the status page with those? Are you not happy with the Netonix PA-50V-65W?

I only power mine with 50V through the PoE and due to polarity protection diodes suffer a 1.4V drop that way so would not want to start off 2V lower at 48V. In fact I am tempted to try the Ubiquiti 54V PoE brick.

Really good price on that BTW.

You can feed the WS-6-MINI up to 57V with no problem just keep in mind what ever voltage you supply it that voltage is provided for the 48V POE option

Anything over 60V will result in smoke even just a hair over. STAY BELOW 60V

I think I asked you about using 56V and you talked me out of it. In really cold weather when the heaters kick in on the cams the voltage was dropping 8V to about 42V so the 56V would be 48V then. Even without the heaters, my wattage draw goes up at night when the IR LEDs come on. Right now during the day it sits around 45V so losing about 5V.

I don't recall if the barrel connector also drops the voltage by 1.4V so 56V at the barrel versus 56V on the far end of a 300 foot CAT5 run is not the same.

If it was up to me I would spec 48V to 56V, Dave the Engineer is the one worried that if we spec 56V then people will say ah 60V is only 4V more and 60V is the upper MAX limit before smoke can occur.
