The purpose of the manual is to help you quickly and effectively navigate the installation and functions of your new Power Over Ethernet device.
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 email@example.com. Phone +1-512-479-0317.

You will need a low voltage mouting ring or single gang wall box as well as a home-run data cable.
If you’re looking for a Power and Data over USB Type C solution, check out our AT-USBC-JB.
Before You Install:
Yes, this converter will work with a normal PoE (IEEE 802.3af) switch or midspan for 12 watts of power, but in order to also have PoE on the output port and USB charging at the same time you need a PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at). You can find our more powerful PoE switches here.
If you already have a PoE switch and want the full PoE+ power, PoE Texas offers midspans that can add PoE+ to any PoE switch. You can find the midspans here. Do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-479-0317 if you’d like help selecting a product.
This device includes a bi-directional USB port so no matter what orientation you use, it will fit and delivers up to 12 watts of charging while still allowing the network port to have PoE.
The installation is simple and only requires a few minutes to set up without specialty tools.
- Make the home run cable from the main switch: PoE or PoE+ (preferred) in the server room or IDF.
- Run the home run cable to the end location where you want your device.
- Install a low voltage ring or single gang box.
- Connect the home run ethernet to the port on the back of the device.
- The blue power light will turn on and your device powers up.
Configuring Your Cisco Enterprise POE Switch for 2 Event PoE Classification
Yeah, I know that’s a mouthful. Here’s the simple translation. Cisco enterprise switches including the 9400 and 9300 models, which is a lot of them, come with a default setting that makes them less compatible PoE+ devices like the GAT-USBC-PD. You’ll know the setting isn’t right because our device won’t power on correctly, and your device won’t charge. How frustrating!
It’s a simple enough fix. You simply need to configure the ports that will power the GAT-USBC-PD to have 2 event classification. You can find the Cisco documentation on how to do that here: CONFIGURE MY SWITCH
The GAT-USB-IW will automatically configure the Power over Ethernet settings on the output port and will start charging any USB device, so there is no configuration necessary.
The GAT-USB-IW is designed to function right out of the box with all the parts necessary to do so. However, if you are having an issue, here are a couple things to check:
1 – Is the blue LED light on the GAT-USB-IW?
– If the light is “off” you don’t have any power coming to the GAT-USB-IW.
– The GAT-USB-IW may not power up immediate as soon as you connect it to PoE without a USB device connected to it. So make sure an end device is connected.
2 – If the power cycles on and off continuously, check whether the PoE port is turning on and off during this. If that’s the case, then the Powered Device is trying to draw too much power for the PoE port. Upgrade the port to PoE+.
