    Hey all i am just wondering what type of DC voltage i would need to start out with in order to get 12v at the end of a 175ft run over cat5 solid cable? This is to be hooked up using the standard power over ethernet (PoE). I'm just not sure what i need to start out with in order to have a constant 12v with 300mA or 1A at the end.

    I also would neeed to know about having 5v at the end with some of them as well.

    Thanks for your time!
