- The information needed is:-

  • Supply voltage.
  • Cable resistance for the cables carrying line power.
  • Resistance of the line powering components :
  • Chokes, fuses, etc. - Usually 0.1W total (0.05W at input and output).
  • VA (power) loading of the devices:-
  • Amplifiers, optical nodes, etc.
