What’s Inside


  • 1 X 2.1 TO 2.1 Y CABLE ADAPTER

The things you want to make sure you get are:

 – Patch cables for the data to the midspan and from the splitter to the device

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

 – Screws for mounting the devices

 – Homerun data cable

If you’re looking for a Power and Data over USB Type C solution, we can also offer a USB Type C hub with a female connector in OEM quantities.

    General Installation

    In order to overcome the power limitations of PoE+ which limits a Powered Device to 25 watts, we have opted to use a Passive PoE allowing up to 41 watts in a full kit.  

    You must use the PoE Texas provided midspan and power supply included in this kit to ensure the optimal performance.  If you need a multi-port alternative, please contact us at poe.shifu@poetexas.com or 512-479-0317.

    The installation is simple and only requires a few minutes to set up with now specialty tools.

    • Go to the power and/or data source location whether its a server room, IDF, or a space provided near an AC outlet and/or datasource.
    • Mount the GPOE-1AB using the M3 mounting tabs near enough to an outlet to allow the 3′ power supply to connect.
    • Plug the 21-Y cable into the power port on the top and the bottom of the GPOE-1AB.
    • Plug the 32 volt power supply into the female end of the 21-Y cable.  Then plug it into the wall outlet.  You will see power is available when the two LED lights turn green.
    • Run the home-run cable to the final tablet location.
    • Mount the POE-USBC onto a surface near the tablet computer.  The POE-USBC can be left as an inline device if you want to.
    • Connect the home-run cable.  The power is functional as soon as the yellow and green LED lights turn on.
    • Connect the USB Type C cable from the female port of the POE-USBC to the tablet computer.
    • (Optional) You can use the RJ-45 port on the POE-USBC to connect the data.  If you’d like combined power and data, we can supply an OEM hub.  Otherwise, we’ll come out with the GAT-USBC-PD soon.
