General Installation

The GBT-12v60w is a PoE  Splitter/ Converter. The purpose send 40-57 volts POE ++ to the input and allow GBT-12V60W to convert this PoE power to 12 volts 60 watts for a DC powered device, with Gigabit data available on the LAN port.

 This unit must be used with 802.3bt compliant PoE switch or injector, capable of providing at least 60 watts on the PoE output (4 pair PoE). Designed for Indoor use only.


  1. Use a patch cable to run from your powering equipment to this wall mounted splitter and simply mount it near the 12 volt DC device your powering.
  2. Plug your PoE cable to the ‘PoE’ port on GBT-12v60w.
  3. Using your existing DC cable (or cable purchased from us –DC-21MM) hard wire into GBT-12v60w —[Red is (+) on the left, White is ground on the middle, and Black is (-)on the right] see below.
  4. Use a patch cable to connect from LAN on the splitter to LAN on your powered device.


There is no configuration necessary with this device.  Simply plug it in.

The green LED indicates power on.  If the light turns blue, it indicates the device is drawing more than 60 watts of power.   

If the green light begins to blink at any time, it could indicate there is a short in the circuit or a compatibility issue.


1 – At the injector, disconnect the PoE port from your device.  Use a PoE Tester to confirm the device is able to power on using a short jumper cable.

2 – At the other end of the PoE cable to your device, disconnect the device and use the PoE Tester to confirm it is able to negotiate PoE.

3 – Connect the PoE Tester in line with the end device to monitor power consumption.
