Based on the vendors generously published specifications of 190 watts. You'll never ever be able to provide 30 watts per port. Let's just assume you actually had a piece of hardware that consumed 60 watts?!?A senior member suggested this to me - it seems to have a lot of good features so I wanted to share it:
-16 Gigbit ports
-2 ports are 60w which can be good if you ever acquire a giant 45x PTZ.
-14 ports are 30w
-190w power budget
If it matters:
-no uplink ports but with 1 gigabit ports it should be fine
-doesn't have a built-in plug
-external power supply
-NOT compatible with Ubiquiti devices which require 24V Passive PoE
Just two of those ports would consume 120 watts . . .
That would leave you with only 70 watts for the remaining 14 ports. That equates to 5 watts left for the remaining 14 ports. Even if you ignore the two 60 watt ports and do some basic math of 190 / 16 = 11.87 watts.
That is a POE (AF) switch not a POE+ (AT) switch.
There isn't magic or fairy dust that will allow a underpowered POE Switch to output 30 watts per port and in this case that's (AT) spec. Anything far above that power output brings it to the POE++ (BT) range. This is why any real POE switch that's so rated as POE+ has no lower than 250 ~ 750 watts depending upon the number of ports. Some try to split hairs by simply denoting X ports can provide POE+ / POE++ but this is normally well called out.
The very first time you try to power anything on your network that comes even close to that rated advert. Expect to see and hear a poof, bang, to a whimper.
Everyone has a budget and few if any of us are made of money . . .
Regardless, lots of folks have spent a lot of time and finances to obtain some of the best in class video security hardware. It's a crying shame the rest of the network infrastructure isn't given the same priority! Nobody has to buy a Enterprise switch as there are countless 2nd tier brands already mentioned in this thread for reference. All of those devices are UL / cUL rated so you know it meets at the minimum of safety standards.
This in a related way means there's a measure of quality and design effort . . .
Everyday there are millions of people buying electronics that are no where close to being safe - never mind well designed. Yet, people are happy to shove these same devices into a hot closet, attic, or under their bed???
Besides the inconvenience of having to spend more time and money to replace the same. There are a percentage of these devices which are just a ticking time bomb about to light your house on fire. Your house burns down to the ground and the insurance company determines the root cause was X switch.
All they are interested to learn is if this thing had any electrical safety markings to support its safe to use in a persons dwelling.
If not, whelps you're truly SOL . . .
The market has tons of options that span 1st tier (Enterprise) to 2nd tier (Consumer) class that it makes very little sense in buying 3rd tier (China Blue Light Special) with no real warranty, support, safety testing etc.
