Does anyone know what kind of ethernet adapter/cable I need to POE power my E510?
From the little bit of tech docs I've found that the connector on the device is a M12 Connector (X-coded, 8 position, Shielded, Female)
But I can't find any cables that will fit.
pinging @DarrelRhodes since you helped with a different obscure E510 question.
Thanks for looping me in.
As you've identified; you need a standard CAT5e (or better) cable, with an 8-core, X-Coded, M12 connector.
These aren't exactly custom-made, but they are certainly specialist 'industrial grade'!
Here's some online examples (you must verify these are applicable): Farnell: https://uk.farnell.com/metz-connect/142m2x15020/sensor-cable-m12-plug-8pos-rj45/dp/2442829?
Amazon (multiple lengths available): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Industrial-Machinery-Ethernet-Shielded-Waterproof/dp/B08DF5GZ87/
Please also use the E510 AP module Quick Start Guide as an important reference: https://docs.commscope.com/bundle/E510-QSG-800-71577-001-RevD/resource/E510-QSG-800-71577-001-RevD.p...
I hope that helps,Darrel.
