Navigating to a PORT: From the main screen simply press the "Select" button. You will arrive at PORT 1 which will blink. If you'd like to manage PORT 1, simply push the "Select" button. Otherwise, press the "Enter" button to scroll through the ports. Once you've arrived at the port you'd like to manage, press the "Select" button.
Go Back to Previous Port: If you'd like to go backward between ports, press and hold the "Enter" button for 2 seconds.
Go Back to Main Screen: If you'd like to go back to the main screen, press and hold the "Select" button for 2 seconds.
Changing a PORT Configuration: Once you're at the port you'd like to configure, simply press "Select" until the setting you would like to change is blinking. Once the setting is blinking, press "Enter" to change the state. Once you're done configuring, you can hold the "Select" button to return to the main screen.
- ON / OFF - This allows you to turn the current port on or off
- Active / Passive - This allows you to decide whether you want the port to do the IEEE PoE negotiation (active) or simply output power all the time (passive)
- Mode A / Mode A+B - This allows you to decide whether to limit the port to 30 watts with 2 pair PoE or to allow the port power 60 or 80 watts using 4 Pair PoE
By default each port is set to Active IEEE 802.3at (30 watt) 2 Pair PoE. For lighting applications you will need to change it to Mode A+B for 60 watt devices. If you need the full 80 watts, you'll also need to set the port to Passive.
