What’s Inside


  • 1 X GAT-USBC

The things you want to make sure you get are:

 – USB Type C male to male cables in the configuration you need

 – Screws for mounting the devices

 – Home-run data cable

If you’re looking for a Power and Data over USB Type C solution, check out our GAT-USBC-PD.  

    General Installation

    Yes, this splitter will work with a normal PoE (IEEE 802.3af) switch or midspan for 12 watts of power, but to get the full PoE power budget you need a PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at).

    If you 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 or 512-479-0317 if you’d like help selecting a product.

    Knowing a little about USB Type C helps understand how to get the most out of your device.  USB Type C Power Delivery (PD)  means the device your powering like a tablet or phone sends a message to the power supply, our GAT-USBC, to find out what kind of power it can supply.  Normally, devices, including the GAT-USBC, advertise that they can do 5, 9, 12, 15, and 20 volts.  Then your USB-C device decides what it likes best and requests that profile.  Then power starts to flow.  However, if the two devices cannot agree on a profile, it defaults to 5 volts.  If the device being powered doesn’t like 5 volts, well, it just doesn’t charge.

    How Do I Know What Profiles I Need?

    The easiest way to find at least some of the profiles of your device is to look at the power supply that came with it.  On the Output side you’ll find the profile of your device.  Compare that to the profiles on the GAT-USBC to confirm they match. 

    WARNING: Samsung devices have a USBC connector, but they use QuickCharge 2.0, not PD.  This model will only charge at the 5 volt 3 amp profile.

    The installation is simple and only requires a few minutes to set up with now 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.  
    • Connect the GAT-USBC to the CAT Cable.
    • Connect the USBC cable from the GAT-USBC to your end device.
    • The green and orange lights will turn on and your device powers up.
