🔌Power Supply for Routers

The outdoor router is designed to provide rural internet connectivity by utilizing a SIM card for accessing mobile broadband networks, delivering internet access even in remote areas not served by traditional wired providers.

The modular design enables flexible powering options for our Outdoor Routers, including Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) injectors for supplying DC power over the ethernet cable from indoor locations, as well as standard AC to DC power adapters that plug into outdoor-rated outlets closer to the router installation site when PoE is not available.

The most versatile and simplest option is using Power over Ethernet from an indoor location. For remote sites, solar power solutions can provide renewable DC power tailored to run outdoor routers without a grid connection.

A PoE injector converts a standard AC outlet into power and Ethernet data delivered over one cable using the 802.3af and 802.3at standards. This supplies 48V or 52V DC to the router while eliminating the need for a nearby power outlet.

An alternative option is to use a standard AC to DC power adapter that plugs into an outdoor-rated outlet near where the router is installed. Common output voltages are 12V, 24V, or higher DC voltage to power the router's internal components from a safe, regulated power source.

For installations lacking nearby AC power, solar power kits or all-in-one solar power stations can reliably power an outdoor router. Professionally engineered outdoor solar kits account for these factors appropriately.
