Power over DM® (PoDM) is a feature of Crestron® DigitalMedia 8G+®technology that enables operating power for DM 8G+®transmitters and receivers to be carried alongside video, audio, and data signals over a single CAT5e cable. As part of a complete DM system, PoDM can be used to deliver a centralized power distribution solution for a facility full of transmitter and receiver devices,eliminatingall the bulky power packs and reducing the number of AC power outlets normally required at every device location.
The DM-PSU-8 provides power for up to eight PoDM powered devices. It is designed to install at the central switcher location, occupying just a single rack space and requiring just one AC power outlet. Each of its eightPOWER ports connects to the POE IN port of a DMC-4K-C input card, DMC-4K-C-DSP input card, or DMC-4K-CO-HD output card. A full 15.4 Watts is supplied by each port to handle eight Class 0-3 PoDM devices simultaneously. Connections between the DM-PSU-8 and switcher are made using ordinary CAT5e cablesterminated with RJ45 connectors (not included). Front panel LEDs indicate when each port is supplying power to a PoDM powered device.
The DM-PSU-8 is also compatible with HDBaseT® specifications, and may be used to power PoH (Power over HDBaseT) powered devices that are connected to the DM switcher in the same manner asa PoDM powered device.PoDMis intended specifically for use with DM 8G+ based systems.
Note: The DM-PSU-8 is not compatible with PoDM+, and is not capable of supplying power to PoDM+ powered devices. For applications requiring a PoDM+ PSE, use the Crestron CEN-SWPOE-16 or similar 802.3at Type 2 Class 4 compliant PoE+ PSE.
