What is the standard of PoE (Power over Ethernet) adopted on EGX devices?



Product Line

The Power over Ethernet (PoE), IEEE802.3af, is deployed on the EGX100 and EGX300 devices.

The IEEE 802.3af PoE standard (ratified June, 2003) provides up to 15.4 W of DC power at 44~57 V DC (though the nominal voltage is 48 V) and 10~350 mA to each device.
Only 12.95 W is assured to be available at the powered device as some power is dissipated in the cable.

There is another new version for PoE, IEEE802.3at-2009, sometimes called "POE+", (ratified September 11, 2009), provides up to 25 W of power. Except the Power Output, the voltage and current output are the same as IEE 802.3af. As of 7/1/2015 the EGX only supports IEEE802.3af.
