Power over Ethernet (POE)
Power over Ethernet (a.k.a. POE) makes it possible to simplify the cabling of Ethernet cameras, because a camera with POE is powered via the network cable. For this reason a separate cable for power supply is not necessary.
For the Gigabit Ethernet camera mvBlueCOUGAR-X -POE is available as an order option according to IEEE standard 802.3at-2009 class 2 (power consumption < 6.49 W).
