> does the Mode S box use standard POE?

Depends on what you mean by standard (and I suppose by what I understand 
standard to mean :-).

It uses what I know of as "passive" POE, which means that the box itself 
has a voltage regulator and protects itself on the device end.  The 
adapter just puts 12v from the wart on the cable, and hopefully there's 
enough juice at the other end to run the device.  I think it actually 
uses ~7v ...

There's no splitter at the device end, it just plugs directly into the 

Maybe some people call this "old skool" POE, because that's how it was 
done before there was a standard.

Does this answer your question?
