Power Requirements: 120 VAC
NOTE: There are no hazardous voltages inside the platform scale or enclosure.
The electronics has been designed to operate from 12 to 24 VDC. The 120 VAC POE adapter uses a 48 volt DC wall power supply. An injector sends the power over extra pairs in the Ethernet cable. At the hive, a splitter separates the 48 VDC from the Ethernet cable and regulates the voltage to 12 VDC. The range is up to 100 meters.
An Ethernet internet connection, usually DSL, cable or satellite, is required. The electronics is plugged into a spare port on the router. Very little bandwidth is used. Less than 1K bytes are uploaded every 5 minutes.
