try first with no limit setted explicitly on the port
Power Method Passive Power over Ethernet (pairs 4,5+; 7,8 return)
I'm afraid this is using the non data wires this can be an issue
8023af uses data pins also for POE that are 1,2 and 3,6 I think this is the trouble here
>> 802.3af PoE: Since the first deployment of PoE, Cisco has been driving the evolution of this technology toward standardization by working with the IEEE and member vendors to create a standards-based means of providing power from an Ethernet switch port. The 802.3af committee has ratified this capability. The 802.3af standard supports the following features: — Specifies –48 V DC at up to 15.4W per port over data pins 1, 2, 3, and 6 or the spare pins 4, 5, 7, and 8 (a PSE can use one or the other, but not both). Cisco Catalyst generally provides 802.3af PoE using the data pins.
I have tried with no limit. When I do so I must use another device inline (also from Ubiquiti called the "Instant 802.3af adpater". This device is intended to convert the standard 48V delivered by the port on the 3560G to 18V.
When I plug this converter into the port, it negotiates for Class 0 power sucessfully and the port is powered. See output:
sw3560IMD#show power inline Available:370.0(w) Used:15.4(w) Remaining:354.6(w)
Interface Admin Oper Power Device Class Max (Watts) --------- ------ ---------- ------- ------------------- ----- ---- Gi0/1 auto off 0.0 n/a n/a 15.4 Gi0/2 auto off 0.0 n/a n/a 15.4 Gi0/3 auto on 15.4 Ieee PD 0 15.4
However, the end device (Ubiquiti Litestation2) does not sucessfully boot.
If I power the Litestation2 using a wall plug and passive poe injector, I measure about 14.9V on pins 4/5 and 7/8. When using the 3560G and "Instant 802.3af" adapter. I measure 17.8V on the same pins. So the difference between a success and failure of booting the Litestation2 seems to be about 3V.
I have already posted to Ubiquiti forums about this problem and I am waiting for a reply.
In the meantime I was thinking that it might be possible to reduce the amount of power delivered by the 3560G.
I have sort of have the same problem. I have devices that are only can be power via 802.3af converter or with their power bricks; I am using 6509 switch with .45AF modules and I dont wanted to use another adapter to power these units. I tried to reverse the power and sort of made my own plug to combine pin 4/5 and 7/8 but unfortunately it not successful.
Does any in the forum how to power a passive poe without using a converter, current needs to come from the switch which can supply up to 15400mA. This is must be just a wiring techniques or mabe something, any help would be greatly appreciated.
From what I understand Linksys switches work with ubiquiti 24v product, which has 802.3af adapter - but so far the adapters do as you said - do not boot even though cisco gives power - perhaps as you say peak power.
I'm so surprised. This is very similar to my own issue.
I am using the Cisco 300 series Manages Switches. (24port PoE). With the UBNT Instant 802.3af converters for my passive PoE AP's.
Everything works correctly, but my converters die... very often. I have about 32 in production, and it seems one dies every week. I've put other instant 802.3af converters in production with different switches and never had any problem.
Also, once the converter dies, I can go into the cisco switch and under "Overload counter" it seems there was a lot of activity. Any idea what the problem might be?
Panoptic also makes a converter from streakwave, but I haven't tried that yet.
Also to note: There's pretty much no switch out there that outputs passive PoE. Every switch outputs 802.3af.
The one exception is tycon power, you can check them out. But its not a managed switch, and the largest is an 8port.
