These Passive Power over Ethernet (GPOE) injectors provide power to as many as 8 devices from a central power source up to 328 ft (100 meters) away. Use this device to inject power into the CAT-5, CAT-6 or CAT-7 cable and power devices such as cameras, VOIP phones, and WiFi access points.
Which Power Supply Do I need?
If the device shows 802.3af or “12v, PoE” on the data sheet this means that the device uses 12 volts when powered from a transformer and 48 volts when powered via Ethernet. For 802.3at devices, select a 56 volt power supply. 24 volts is used for Microtik, Open-Mesh, and most Ubiquiti devices. Consult your data sheet or use our Find-A-PoE search if you’re not certain. For Devices classified 802.3t, use 56 volts.
How many watts should I budget?
Most IP phones and PoE cameras use less than 10 watts per device, and a power budget of 10 watts per port power supply will be sufficient for most applications. 120 watts power supplies are recommended for WiFi Access Points. Consult your device specs if you’re not certain.
