What’s Inside


  • 1 X POE Converter

Tested compatible with iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro 11″, Samsung Tab S7 Lite, Samsung Tab A8, and more

Please contact us at success@poetexas.com if you’d like to confirm your compatibility




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 and designed to fit inside a US dual gang wall box or simply inside the wall.

Once it is in place, simply follow these steps in order:

1 – Plug the RJ-45 end into an IEEE 802.3af 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 using the port you prefer



IEEE 802.3af PoE – No Configuration Necessary

As a PoE device – not PoE+ or PoE++ – this device is compatible with ALL PoE switches and does not require any configuration on the switch side.

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.

Best Practices for iOS Updates

Despite Apple’s excellent reputation for ensuring backward compatibility with their iPads and iPhones, practical experience with a recent iOS update has revealed that even they can miss things which can temporarily lead to disruption of service for your device.   If your device must be reliable 24/7, we recommend these following best practices:

  • Go to Settings -> General -> Software Updates -> Automatic Updates
  • Deselect “Install iPadOS Updates”
  • Before choosing to install the next update, please check into our iOS Compatibility Table to check whether we have finished testing the performance of an new iPadOS version
