Q80021506 - Does ARC-8050T2 power up/down via the optical cable?

User can use optical thunderbolt cable with any of Areca thunderbolt raid storage including 8050T2. Thunderbolt cable has three bus inside: high speed channel for data transmission, low speed channel for device negotiation, and power deliver to provide power for end devices. Optical thunderbolt cable does not have power deliver ability, so optical thunderbolt cable can not drive thunderbolt end devices which do not have its own power supply. But power on control uses low speed bus, so power control through optical thunderbolt cable is possible.
