    Does anyone have any experience with running a third party PoE switch out of the AR2412 stage box to run ME-500 personal mixers?
    I wasn’t able to find anything specific to that…
    Would it be possible to connect the PoE switch to the Monitor or Expander port on the AR2412 and then multiple ME-500 to the PoE switch?
    Or should the switch be placed between the QU mixer and the dSnake port on the AR2412?

    yes it’s possible, and it has to be an 100MBit switch

    Hi @Jak2555

    A&H protocols are layer 2 which means the units are not addressed and so you wouldn’t be able to split out the signals between the Qu and the AR2412, but you can use a PoE switch directly before a ME or multiple ME units. i.e. wherever a ME unit could be connected, including the Monitor or Expander port of the AR2412 as you say.

    It would need to be a fast ethernet 100MBit switch if connecting to an SLink port (as if the SLink port detects a gigabit connection it will automatically go into gigaACE mode), but connecting from the monitor output of an AR2412 you should be fine.
