E510 Ethernet Adapter

Hello,

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.

Hi Robert,

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):

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.
