* LAMP power: DC 12 V/500 mA 

* When a S-4000D REAC Splitter&Power Distributor or a switching hub is used in-line with REAC cables, the network latency will increase by the amount of processing delay introduced by the splitting device itself. The actual delay is dependant upon the specifications of the splitting device, though the maximum delay amount for a single splitting device should be about 200 microseconds.
