I am on the lookout for Wired networks deployed in Industrial and other IoT applicable sectors which use cables to transfer Power + Data.
I am aware of:
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) IEEE standard which sends information and power (48V) over the same CAT5/CAT5e cables so end nodes do not require separate power source.
However I only see this standard for practical applications and widely used throughout many sectors. I am curious which other standards are there juxaposing with PoE or competing with it?
Since CAN is widely used in industries, is there something like Power over CAN ?
