To pick out the right PoE Texas product for your tablet, we just need to answer a few quick questions:

Do you already have a PoE switch?  (Most are IEEE 802.3af or .at)

If so, you just need to pick your splitter form factor and cable type which you can find here.

Where do you want to put your splitter?  You’ll need a splitter and you can put it:

  • In a wall box – looks nice and professional
  • Inside the wall or in the ceiling

Picking My Splitter

If you want to conceal as much as possible – meaning you tuck it away inside the wall or the ceiling – go for the enclosed form factor like the GAF-Lightning-PD.

If you’re looking for a clean solution to wall mount the splitter, pick the GAF-USB2 mounted on a recessed low voltage wall box.

If you have tight walls or just have more access around the back, you could upgrade to a different low voltage wall box.

Got USB-C?  No problem
