DC Power Failover for PoE


Dual DC Power Input For Backup Power

This device has 2 DC inputs, 2 low loss diodes, and a DC output. As long as either power supply input has power, there will be power on the output.

Maximum voltage supports is 60 Volts. 

Maximum current supported is 8 Amps.

All 3 DC sockets are 2.1mm x 5.5mm

One 2.1mm to 2.1mm 30 cm long jumper cable is included.

Note: our WS-POE-16 has this diode function built in.

Use with:

  • WS-POE-8
  • WS-POE-12
  • WS-GPOE-6
  • WS-GPOE-12 in Mode B applications
  • Any PoE Switch with external power

If powering 802.3af devices, these products include dual input power jacks that serve the same function redundant power

  • WS-GPOE-AB-6
  • WS-GPOE-12
  • WS-GPOE-16
  • WS-POES-8-7

This is possible because power is on all 4 pairs of the ethernet cable, and 802.3af devices are required to allow power on either pair.
