The next generation in lighting

Power over Ethernet (PoE)


Power over Ethernet or PoE, allows electrical power to travel through dedicated data connection with an ethernet cable, delivering DC power to your lighting devices. In a new build or major rehab, a PoE installation can be more cost effective than traditional line voltage. Additionally, with PoE lighting, you open the possibilities for advanced lighting controls and smart building integrations.
