mantbox 12s only has passive poe?

Sun Apr 18, 2021 4:45 pm

Just wanted to come here to say how lame it is that the mANTBOx 12s only supports passive PoE. For this sort of application, seems stupid. How many pennies did that save off the manufacturing cost?

Mikrotik only gives you what you need, but if you need 802.3af/at then get the mANTbox 52 15s which has the 12s and 15s combined into one thing with all the good features you want.

No, the mANTBox 2 12s is 120 degree beam width.. The 52 15s is only 90 degree on 2.4G (and 60 degree on 5Ghz). I need 120 for this. Or about 115 anyway.

If you want to power this device from 802.3af/at, you can use GPON-CON:

Thank you Elans. That will work nicely.
