P16 Distribution

I have a customer with a handful of P-16Ms and a P16D. A couple of ports on the P16D have died. Can the P16M use a standard PoE switch of must I use the P16D?

Hi Danny, welcome to the community.

 

Even though it uses the same RJ45 connector, Ultranet is not compatible with Ethernet Layer 2. Only a P16D can provide the correct signal and bus-power distribution.

 

If you have the power adaptors for the P16M, you could power some of them locally and connect them to the Ultranet Thru of another unit on a working port.
