802.3bT (95 watt) PoE Injector

Welcome to the PoE Texas Manual for the BT-1-55v95w that cost effectively upgrades any non-PoE or PoE port to IEEE 802.3bt and 95 watts!

The purpose of the manual is to help you quickly and effectively navigate the installation and functions of your new Power Over Ethernet Midspan.

Our goal is to make our products as intuitive and simple to use as possible, so we value your feedback and questions directly to us at service@poetexas.com.  Phone +1-512-479-0317.

What’s Inside



  • 1 X Midspan Injector with built in 6KV Surge Protection (designed for indoor use only)
  • 1 X AC Power Cable
  • 1 X Grounding Cable with Screw


Additional items you’ll need not included:

1 – Screws for mounting

2 – Patch cables to the switch and home run cables to the device

General Installation

A midspan like the BT-1-55v95w is a simple device to add on to a network port, and the purpose is to add or increase the PoE of that port 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 that IEEE 802.3bt (95 watts) power budget and up to gigabit pass through data.

The BT-1-55v95w is also surge protected, so, while it cannot be mounted outdoor, you can connect it to outdoor devices with confidence.  In order to make the surge protection fully functional, you will need to properly ground the connector on the side of the device.

Not sure what grounding is?  Panduit has some great graphics around grounding.


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

  • The green LED indicates power on and drawing less than 30 watts.  If the light turns blue, it indicates the port is drawing more than 30 watts of power.   
  • If the green light begins to blink at any time, it could indicate there is a short in the circuit or a compatibility issue.



1 – At the injector, disconnect the PoE port from your device.  Use a PoE Tester to confirm the device is able to power on using a short jumper cable.

2 – At the other end of the network cable to your device, disconnect the device and use the PoE Tester to confirm it is able to negotiate PoE.

3 – Connect the PoE Tester to the end device to monitor power consumption.


If you’re able to power on the device with the PoE Tester inline, it’s likely a compatibility issue.  Please contact us at service@poetexas.com to find you the right solution.
