NVR 16 port included power adapter enough to run 16 cameras + 2 HDD?
I have the 16 port NVR from Reolink and need information on what to do if I use all 16 ports for the following cameras:
2x internal SATA hard drive.
I currently have 3x RLC-420, 9x RLC-410 and 2x hard drives connected and my power draw at the wall is at 100watts. The supplied AC adapter is rated for 48V x 2.5amps = 120watts. Taking into account 90% efficiency of the AC adapter that means I am currently using 90 watts out of the available 120 watts. Adding just 2x RLC-423 would put me over the edge.
What are my options if I want to add more power hungry cameras?
Well, you can use power adapter (DC12V) to power the added rlc-423 in case the total power all your cameras comsume exceeds 120watts.
Base on your calculation, your available watts has only 30 watts left, but one RLC-423 use 22W. so as you said, there is not enough watts for the RLC-423s.
howdymoody was right.
You can use PoE switch to connects RLC-423 and NVR and make sure to use a power adapter on PoE switch that provides watts required for RLC-423s.
phraew - I prefer to connect all my devices directly to the NVR without using an additional injector or separate PoE switch. One possible solution is to buy a AC to 48v DC inverter that goes up to 200watts and install the same power tip the NVR uses. This should work right?
Also, is that table correct?
802.3af = 15.40 watts max
802.3at = 25.50 watts max
I think the table has it backwards if I am not mistaken.
Thank you for the reminder. I've correct it.
We recommend to use the adapter in the box we provided. By this way, you may connects only one RLC-423 to the NVR directly without separate adapter. For more RLC-423s, we suggest you to use additional PoE injector/switch (802.3AT) or adapter.
The method you mentioned has the possibility burn up the NVR board.
