Compatible PoE adapter for camera Reolink RLC-520A

I have ordered in March 2022 the Reolink PoE Security Camera RLC-520A at amazon.de

The camera comes without power adaptor! So I had to find one. It is really hard to find what are the compatible devices for PoE option to supply the camera.

On the Reolink page it is written that the PoE should be compatible with:

PoE: IEEE 802.3af, 48V Active

Though on most of PoE adapters it is not written if they are “Active” or not. And in some forums you can find a lot of failed attempts to use different PoE adapters and some replies that they are failing to work because they are not active.

I got from a friend a spare PoE power adapter as follow:

Ubiquiti Networks POE-48-24W PoE adapter 48 V
EAN: 810354023064
SKU: POE-48-24W

Although it is not stated that it is “Active” adapter it works and successfully powers the Reolink RCL-520A camera. So Ubiquiti POE-48-24W is COMPATIBLE with Reolink RCL-520A. ✅✅✅

  • Note (tip): You need to connect power AND wired LAN signal in order to adapter to send power to the camera! Otherwise using only power adapter and camera may trick you that it is not working.
