Your new PoE converter is designed to be simple to install and set up. It has wings to allow the unit to be attached to a desk or wall..
Once it is in place, simply follow these steps in order:
1 – Plug the RJ-45 end into an IEEE 802.3bt PoE (POE++) or 48-56 volt 4Pair passive Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) with a data source
2 – Ensure the device you’re connecting to is on and logged in
3 – Plug the USB-C connector into the device
The converter will automatically set up the network connection with your device and begin charging. To confirm that, go to the General settings tab or look for the <…> symbol next to Ethernet.
* Please use the provided spacer clamp to avoid damage to the USB-C connector which will void the product warranty.
Configuring Your BT-USBC-A-PD
You’re not required to do any configuration with IEEE 802.3bt switches and injectors. The PoE++ to USBC converter will connect to the PoE switch, negotiate the USB-C power delivery profile, and begin transmitting data.
Not sure what kind of PoE your network switch provides? You can use the LED’s on the side of the device to see what type of PoE power your switch has negotiated with the BT-USBC-A-PD.
Some previous version Cisco uPoE switches do require some configuration on the switch to enable the right PoE for the BT-USBC-A-PD.
Or here are the steps you take after you’ve logged into the terminal.
Switch# configure terminal
Switch(config)# interface gigabitethernet2/0/1
Switch(config-if)# power inline port 2-event
Microsoft Surface and Windows Computers
There’s no configuration necessary for your Microsoft Surface products. You can simply use the connection as an Ethernet connection on the device.
iPad Pro Gen 3
Configuring Your iPad for Wired Data
There are a couple easy steps for configuring your iPad to get the best results when working with wired data.
First, we’re going to enable USB devices to allow charging even when the iPad is “off” or the screen is locked.
If you you don’t have the most up to date iOS software, take this time to update to iOS 12.2 or later. Otherwise, it will prevent any connected device from charging or communicating with it after the screen has been locked for an hour. Here’s how to fix that:
- Navigate to the Settings tab
- Select Face ID & Passcode
- Ensure the USB Accessories button is toggled to “On” meaning you see the green
You can still set up your iPad to not automatically lock on a timer. When the screen locks if you would like the screen always on.
- Go to the Settings icon on your iPad
- Select Display & Brightness
- Select Auto Lock
- Set the limit to Never
The splitter will auto-configure the IP settings to default as soon as you connect it up including Dynamic IP addressing.
- Navigate to General Settings, then you’ll see a symbol for the LAN <…>
- Select this and you’ll see the option for PoE Texas LAN, select it
You’ll see your IPV4 IP address information. If it shows “Automatic”, that means your getting a dynamically assigned IP address.
If you’d like to reconfigure the IP address, DNS, and HTTP Proxy settings, you can do that by selecting these options.
The most used option will be fixing your IP address by selecting the “Automatic” button.
For the other networks settings, we’d recommend talking to a service provider or give us a call: 512-479-0317 or email@example.com.
If you still have an iPad 10.2 or mini or any iPad with a lightning connector, the AT-USBC-A-PD will be able to charge and send data to your iPad using our USB-C to lightning connector.
iPad’s, especially with lightning connectors, have a limited set of compatible USB accessories including USB storage devices, mice, and keyboards. Please make sure you test your iPad for compatibility with your USB device.
Android (Samsung Tab and Google Chromebook or Pixel)
If you’re using a Samsung Tab A model year prior to 2019, you may experience some difficulties establishing the wired data connection. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re experiencing compatibility issues with your Samsung device.
Otherwise, simply confirm the data by looking for the Ethernet symbol on the upper right. No configuration necessary.
