Powering PR4100 via PoE?

Hi all

I recently invested in a PoE switch that can deliver up to 125w of power. It’s currently using about 10w on a few small devices just fine.

However, in the interest of cleaning up morepower adapter, plugs, and cabling - I was wondering if it would be at all possible to power my PR4100 via PoE using a PoE splitter.

I understand it’s 19V, so I have enquired about a 19V PoE splitter that I am awaiting to hear back from - but would this work? Am I over simplifying it? What would the amperage of the PoE splitter need to be?

So many questions, but really want to know if I’m wasting my time.

Thanks for any help in advance :slight_smile:
