“We tasked Grinn with the hardware development of the Airtame PoE Adapter. It is a powering accessory that uses the same custom cable that comes with the Airtame 2 to provide both power and data to the device, securing optimal performance. Grinn engineers also worked with Airtame to develop the production tester which is used to ensure a high quality in mass production. The team at Grinn was able to integrate select hardware components in our design using a quality-centric approach and provide a lot of flexibility to us as a customer when producing this hardware accessory. The Airtame PoE Adapter has improved our product porfolio offering, and our ability to offer setup flexibility to our customers.”
