I just had more equipment installed today and went up to a SWiM16, and the tech told me it needed a dedicated power line due to the 29V PI. No big deal, one was already run to where we put the PI, but I noticed on the switch the first SWiM channel says SWM1/PWR. I was mainly curious as to why this is? Would this be for a second power inserter? What is the purpose of that?
Just a minor curiosity!
Thanks to anyone who knows.

Either one will work for the power inserter(only one required). The way yours is installed is likely less problematic.

Thanks so much, that's what I imagined the situation might be....29V is a lot of power to pass, so having a dedicated one works for me!
