What you need to know about mounting the PoE switch

Here you can find out everything about the placement and mounting options for the PoE switch. πŸ”€


Placement of the PoE switch

We recommend mounting the PoE switch between the IP Camera and the Wingfield Box at your court, as you can then cover the distances to the Wingfield Box and the IP Camera with the network cables supplied. However, for safety's sake, measure the distances again. Excess cable can be wound up at the end if necessary.

πŸ’‘ Tip: When positioning the switch, also consider the range to the power and Internet connection (usually your router). If power cables or network cables have to be placed from the router to the site before the actual installation, consider the exact position of the switch beforehand. Please use the form from our Checkliste for planning.
