What’s Inside

PARTS LIST:

  • 1 X POE+ Converter
  • 1 X USB-C to USB-C (right angle)

 

GENERAL INSTALLATION

 

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 the four M3 sized mounting brackets to secure the device to a wall or surface.

 

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.

CONFIGURATION

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> enable
Switch# configure terminal
Switch(config)# interface gigabitethernet2/0/1

Switch(config-if)# power inline port 2-event
Switch(config-if)# end

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.

  1. Navigate to General Settings, then you’ll see a symbol for the LAN <…>
  2. 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 service@poetexas.com.
