Q: Can I use Sixnet PoE devices with product that’s require something other than the PoE standard 48VDC?
A: No, It must be 48VDC.
Q: Can I pass PoE through another device?
A: No, The Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) port must be directly connected to the Powered Device (PD).
Q: What is the switch’s power consumption for the EB-5ES-PSE?
A: 2 W (5-port without fiber) + PoE, and 3 W (5-port with 1 fiber) + PoE
Typical for all ports to be active at 100 Mbps.
Q: What is the PoE Power consumption?
A: Up to 15.4 watts per channel (per 802.3af standards).
Q: How do I know which model I should use for my powered device, -A or -B?
A: The vendor of the powered device will specify if they use the signal pair for both communication and PoE on pins (1,2,3,6), or if they use a separate pair for PoE on pins (4,5,7,8).
Q: My powered device doesn’t seem to be working. How can I tell what the problem may be?
A: Look at the PoE LED. This is the Green LED that is either integrated into the RJ45 port (on switch models) or is below the PoE ports (on injector models). It indicates the PoE status of the port.
The LED status can be the following:
A valid Powered Device (PD) is detected and the switch or injector is sourcing power on this port.
No valid Powered Device (PD) is detected, so no power is being sourced.
Periodically Blinks ON
No valid Powered Device (PD) is detected or the connected device is drawing too little current (<10 mA) so no power is being sourced.
However, the switch or injector is periodically looking for a valid device. This condition may occur when you have connected a PoE splitter but it has not been connected to a load yet.
Once the connected device (such as a splitter) is loaded and draws more than 10 or 15 mA, then power will be sourced.
Error Code Blink
Some models may blink an error code. If you see the same sequence of blinks repeatedly, note the blink sequence and contact support for more information.
