PoE+ To USB-C 3.0 (Gigabit Data Rate)
Welcome to the PoE Texas Manual for the patent pending GAT-USBC-PD-V3 (designed for iPad, Microsoft Surface, and Samsung) that delivers wired Power and Gigabit Data for your USB Type C devices!
The purpose of the manual is to help you quickly and effectively navigate the installation and functions of your new Power Over Ethernet Converter.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone +1-512-479-0317.
Or you’re always welcome to leave questions or comments on our product page: GAT-USBC-PD-V3
Your new PoE converter is designed to be simple to install and set up. It is small and light enough to leave “inline” with your network cable.
You may also choose to use four Keystone 616 mounting brackets to wall mount the device.
Otherwise, the GAT-USBC-PD-V3 fits many single gang wall boxes and all dual gang wall boxes.
Once it is in place, simply follow these steps in order:
1 – Plug the RJ-45 end into an IEEE 802.3at PoE (POE+) or 48-56 volt 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.
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
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 Go
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.
Best Practices for iOS Updates
Despite Apple’s excellent reputation for ensuring backward compatibility with their iPads and iPhones, practical experience with a recent iOS update has revealed that even they can miss things which can temporarily lead to disruption of service for your device. If your device must be reliable 24/7, we recommend these following best practices:
- Go to Settings -> General -> Software Updates -> Automatic Updates
- Deselect “Install iPadOS Updates”
- Before choosing to install the next update, please check into our iOS Compatibility Table to check whether we have finished testing the performance of an new iPadOS version

Android (Samsung Tab and Google 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.
