I ran out of room when I tried. That is on the APC version.

Gino A. Villarini President Metro Office Park #18 Suite 304 Guaynabo, Puerto Rico 00968 Two similar questions: Surge suppressors can blow ports. If you have a surge, the surge protector will clamp all the Ethernet lines to ground. That shorts them all together and grounds them. That will also blow some POE ports. So you need surge protectors to protect things from surges, but you need fuses to protect the POE source from the surge protector. Learned this the hard way.

So for a Netonix, do we just need the fuse or do we need the surge arrestor card as well?

We have been shipping for months. The cost of having a Netonix port repaired is more than the cost of the fuse. And then there is the labor and downtime and other intangible expenses involved in blowing a port. The prices are lower if you buy from one of my distributors. I don't encourage anyone to buy off my ecommerce site and pay full list price. That site is only there to generate sales for distributors. All of my products have prices based on cost plus margin. Same formula across the board pretty much. I try to have unique products you can't get other places. If volume increases on a product, I sometimes adjust the price down due to the fact that my costs come down. For example, if I am buying 1000 surge protector PCBs, I may be paying $1 for each. But if I am only buying 100 of them it may be $2.50. I recently adjusted the cost down on my 8 circuit tower surge protector for exactly this reason. Volume picked up, I worked on sourcing and buying and was able to drop the list price considerably and still maintain my margins. -----Original Message----- From: Faisal Imtiaz Sent: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 8:00 AM To: Animal Farm Subject: [AFMUG] POE Fuse ... Hi Chuck, Great to hear about the new product, the POE Fuse. Question & critique. When are these going to be available ? We would like to see these priced a bit more aggressive... (At the current pricing, the cost of fusing multiple ports appears to be exceeding the cost of 'poe switch' it is protecting ! ) Regards.
