We are using passive PoE injectors and long ethernet cables.
|NS5, M5, M2||9V||24V||8.0W|
Note that the measured power consumption of a standard node (1 Alix2D13, 4 nanostations) is between 20 and 25 W.
You want the Voltage to be as high as possible, causing your current to be as low. This in general makes transport over UTP wires more effient (higher voltage = less loss) and causes your adapters to work more effient (AC->DC adapters tend to be more effient and last longer if you keep the voltage as high as possible).
We aim to get between 18V-20V to our node, Make sure to keep track of your input voltage Calculate when using long cables.
