PoDL on SPEBlox 1000BASE-T1

Copied from customer email

Hello my team has purchased the SPEBlox have you or is there a simple way to use them with power over data lines? Is there a current configuration or do you have any documentation or experience using them with PODL?

Injecting power over the data lines on SPEBlox is currently not supported. We did run some tests on this but we found it reduced the range of the wires to around 1-2 meters (from 22 meters), which we deemed was not a valid comprimise.

There’s still a bit of development being done on PoDL in the industry, we don’t yet have a device that can achieve this.
