Raven-A Power Adapter

Charge Two Devices over USB-A with Power over Ethernet

$49.99 / Web Price

LAVA’s Raven-A PoE Power Adapter splits the Power over Ethernet (PoE) signal in two. It sends power to two USB-A ports on the device for powering USB peripherals or charging mobile devices. The 10/100-capable network connection is sent to a second Ethernet port next to the PoE input.

The adapter provides up to 10 watts of charging power and uses a standard CAT5/5e/6 Ethernet cable connected to a PoE-enabled switch or injector rated for a maximum of 15.4 watts.

How the Raven-A Works

LAVA’s Raven-A PoE Power Adapter splits power and network data from a Power over Ethernet (PoE) input. When the PoE signal travels into the device through an Ethernet port, the adapter strips off the power component and sends it to two USB-A ports on the other side of the device. These ports can be used to power USB peripherals or charge mobile devices. The unit acts a 5-volt DC regulated power supply and is able to provide up to 2 amperes to the USB-A ports combined. The network portion of the signal can be accessed through a second 10/100-capable Ethernet port on the back of the device. It can be used to provide a wired network connection to a computer.

Power at a Distance with PoE

With PoE technology, the adapter does not require a dedicated AC source, as it is fully powered through its middle Ethernet port. PoE allows greater options for placement as the mobile device or peripheral can be used in areas with limited electrical outlets. It can be placed up to 328 ft (100 m) from the power source.

The power adapter’s USB-A ports allow you to connect any standard charging cables (use of the cable originally supplied with a mobile device is recommended) to the Raven-A. This makes it a universal power adapter. It is configured at LAVA’s factory to work with Android mobile devices, Raspberry Pi and so on. However, for use with Apple products, two jumpers inside the adapter must be adjusted.

Any standard Ethernet Cat 5/5e/6 cable can be used with the power adapter but it is recommended to use one from a reliable dealer.
