How should I use Passive PoE? / How to implement Passive PoE in network infrastructure?

You are here:

There are several options to deploy Passive PoE in network infrastructure:

  • Single port Passive PoE Injector
  • Multiple port Passive PoE Injector
  • Network switch with Passive PoE support

 

  1. Single port Passive PoE Injector + power source
      LAN Socket – connect to network switch or computer
      POE Socket – connect to Anchor
      Power supply connector – connect the PoE power supply
    Passive PoE - Single Injector
  2. Multiple Passive PoE port Injector + power source
      LAN Socket – connect to network switch or computer
      POE Socket (Power+Data) – connect to Anchor
      Power supply connector – connect the PoE power supply (back side)
    Passive PoE - Multiple Port Injector
    RULE 1: Always use power source for Passive PoE injector with galvanic isolation and short protection. Verified PN: Mean WELL GS36E48-P1J.
    RULE 2: Be careful during PoE cable manipulating: The Ethernet cable from PoE socket marked as PoE or sometimes “Power + Data” should be considered as “live” and only ever plugged into the anchor device.

  3. Network switch with Passive PoE
    Many manufacturers on the market offer switches with Passive PoE support. One example of such a switch is Ubiquiti Edge Switch.
