PoE Considerations

The switch prioritizes the PoE and PoE+ power that it supplies in ascending port order (from port 1 to port 8), with a total power budget of 120 watts. If the power requirements for the attached powered devices (PDs) exceed the total power budget of the switch, the PD on the highest-numbered port is disabled to make sure that the PDs that are connected to the higher-priority, lower-numbered ports are supported first.

Just because a PD is listed as an 802.3at PoE powered device does not necessarily mean that it requires the maximum power limit of the specification. Many PDs require less power, allowing all eight PoE ports to be active simultaneously.

The following table describes the PoE classes and switch allocations.

PoE Troubleshooting

Here are some tips for correcting PoE problems that might occur:

  • Make sure that the PoE Max LED is off. If the PoE Max LED is solid amber, disconnect one or more PoE devices to prevent PoE oversubscription. Start by disconnecting the device from the highest-numbered port.
  • Make sure that the Ethernet cables are plugged in correctly. For each powered device (PD) that is connected to the switch, the corresponding right port LED on the switch lights solid green. If the right port LED lights solid amber, a PoE fault occurred and PoE halted because of one of the conditions that are listed in the following table.

Attach the Switch to a Wall

To attach the switch to a wall, you need the wall-mount screws that are supplied with the switch.

To attach the switch to a wall: 

  1. Locate the two mount holes on the bottom panel of the switch.
  2. Mark and drill two mounting holes in the wall where you want to mount the switch.
    The two mounting holes must be at a precise distance of 4.27 in. (108.4 mm) from each other.
  3. Insert the supplied anchors into the wall and tighten the supplied screws wit tha No. 2 Phillips screwdriver.
    Leave about 0.125 in. (4 mm) of each screw protruding from the wall so that you can insert the screws into the holes on the bottom panel.

Install the Switch in a Rack

To install the switch in a rack, you need the rack-mount brackets and screws that are supplied with the switch.

To install the switch in a rack: 

  1. Attach the supplied mounting brackets to the side of the switch. Insert the screws provided in the product package through each bracket and into the bracket mounting holes in the switch.
  2. Tighten the screws with a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver to secure each bracket.
  3. Align the mounting holes in the brackets with the holes in the rack, and insert two pan-head screws with nylon washers through each bracket and into the rack.
  4. Tighten the screws with a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver to secure mounting brackets to the rack.
