By Brian Rhodes, Published Oct 15, 2019, 10:10am EDT

Power supply provider Altronix claims its new Tango power supply 'eliminates the need for an electrician, dedicated conduit and wire runs'.

In this report, we examine their claims and Altronix feedback, including:

  • What Is Altronix Tango?
  • What Makes Tango A 'Game Changer'?
  • Do Competitors Offer Similar PoE Transformers?
  • Can Tango Avoid Expensive Labor?
  • Which Access Projects Does Tango Benefit?
  • But high-voltage power connections and PoE midspans/injectors needed
