=== 24V Passive PoE Switch & PoE Injectors ===
« on: February 28, 2013, 09:56:55 PM »
This is a list of 24V Passive PoE Switches, and passive PoE injectors that can be used for supplying the SBC66EC with power via the network cable. The SBC66EC does not comply to the official 802.3af 48V PoE Standard, but uses passive PoE. Power (normally 24V) can be supplied on the spare Ethernet pairs, positive power must be on pair 4 and 5, and ground on 7 and 8. Voltage range can be from 7.5 to 40V.

================= Passive 24V PoE Switches ===================
This is an Ethernet switch with passive 24V PoE ports. It is a normal switch, but with 24V passive (not standard 802.3af PoE) PoE ports. It adds 24V power to the unused Ethernet pairs. Seems like this technique is normally called "passive PoE" or "24V Passive POE" or "Forced PoE". Note that most "Forced PoE" switches seem to put 48V on the unused pairs, which WILL NOT work for the SBC66EC!
