Plixus AE-R power supply

The Plixus AE-R does not have an internal power supply, however it does have two power connectors. By default you get one power supply together with the engine. You can extend this power supply with another as redundancy or when the system requires more power.

To check how many power supplies you require, consult the flowchart shown below.

Calculator tool

The Plixus Power Calculator Tool allows to you to validate a configuration in more detail. It takes into account the network cable lengths, power cable lengths and the different types of equipment.

The Plixus Power Calculator Tool can be easily found on the Televic Partner Domain.

Regardless of the calculator values, the maximum values above still apply. If more units, more power or a larger length is needed, then you need to create a separate branch using a Network Extender.
