General Installation

POE Injectors are a simple device to add into any network, and the purpose is to add or increase the PoE of your network without having to upgrade or pick a less optimal switch.

With this wall mounted device, simply mount it near the networking switch you’d like to pair it with.  Then, using a short Ethernet patch cable from the switch’s data port to the LAN port on the PoE midspan.   Then the POE port adjacent to the LAN port will now have up to 30 watt potential power budget per port.

NOTE: a midspan adds PoE to one data port at a time.  So if you connect LAN 1 to a data port on your switch you’ll have Mode A POE on port 1 of the midspan [wait . . . what’s Mode A mean?].  To get POE on port 2, you need to add a patch cable on LAN 2 back to the switch,  And so on.

Then connect the POE port to your PoE enabled device.

 

This is a ACTIVE PoE midspan, meaning it negotiates the IEEE 802.3af/at standard before delivering power.   Connecting it to a laptop or other non-PoE device is SAFE for the network card on your device.

CONFIGURATION

There is no configuration necessary with this device.  Simply plug it in.

The green LED indicates power on.   If the green light begins to blink at any time, it is an indication that one of the POE ports has shorted out or overloaded.

STEPS:

1 – Unplug the POE ports one at a time to determine which port is having the issue

2 – Troubleshoot the port to determine whether the cable or the device is grounded
