RUTX50 - PoE and power adapter simultaneously


I have a RUTX50 in a remote building. Is it possible to power the device with PoE and the power adapter at the same time (simultaneously, if either power supply breaks)?


Yes, the router can be powered from a power socket and over Ethernet simultaneously. In this case, both PSUs should have similar output voltages. The power socket has higher priority meaning that the device will draw power from the power socket as long as it is available.

When the device is switching from one power source to another it loses power for a fraction of a second and may reboot. The device will function correctly after the reboot.

More about powering options you can find here: RUTX50 Powering Options - Teltonika Networks Wiki

Best regards,


Many thanks for good information and a quick reply!
