Could the emonBASE be modded to support POE?
Just a thought as the emonBASE is not in the best place for coverage from the TX or GLCD in my house and i could run a network cable easily but network and power not so., Iv already got a POE switch.
The Nanode does not come with POE, I believe its quite expensive and would significantly increase the price. some people have tried to add it:
I agree, in the future it could be a good feature to add.
Thanks I was looking at using this http://ardx.org/datasheet/ARPO-01-DATASHEET.pdf i understand it would increase the cost of the unit, was really just looking to see if it was possible,, I will have a look and report back.
I know it's not as neat as being built-in but you could use a PoE splitter like this TP-Link one: http://www.box.co.uk/TP-Link_POE_networking_Splitter_997126.html
It has 12v and 5v output selectable and costs £8.80!
WOW thanks that would be alot easier than hacking a POE module into it..
