What is the use of 260GSP ?

Thu Jul 10, 2014 10:25 am

We bought several sw`s to power vivotek IP cameras. Now we can`t get the POE to ANY device connected, be it a camera or an IPphone. Swos is updated. When setting the port form POE-auto, to POE-on, the port says that POE is working, red LED is on , but there is no link. The passive POE isn`t working either - POE injector connected to eth1, doesn`t distribute the power to POE ports. The device is working fine when connected directly to the injector.
What kind of devices is it supposed to power? A toothbrush maybe?

Yes, here you can check the list of "toothbrushes" that can be powered by RB260GSP

So, only RB devices? I don`t see this kind of information written anywhere in the manual or web. It`s just that I am used to the fact that mikrotik does everything better than others, but sadly this is not the case, when a netgear switch powers every device i connect to it, but the RB - none.

You shouldn't hate on MikroTik because you failed to match the capabilities of the 260GSP to the requirements of your cameras. According to the product documentation, the 260GSP supplies non-802.3af PoE (up to 1A per port at the same voltage applied to the unit - up to 30V DC). Your Vivotek IP camera requires 802.3af compliant power (minimum 44V). You need an 802.3af compliant PoE switch, or you need to switch your cameras out for models that can run on less than 30V - there are plenty of them out there.

You made an honest mistake...I do it all the time. Just don't blame the manufacturer for something that isn't their fault.

I use it to power hikvision and mobotix cameras.... and work flawlessly...

Thanks for your comments. As i see it - the majority of devices need 802.3af. When will mikrotik have a poe switch with 802.3af POE?

Actually, the way I see the industry going is more toward lower power PoE. The government is investing heavily in "green" technologies that reduce power consumption, especially when it comes to IT equipment. As mobile computing platform become more powerful while still using little energy, I think you'll see computers based on mobile platforms...such as Apple switching to the A series processors in their MacBook Air (which has been on their roadmap for a while, among other things. Intel has their Bay Trail processor, which is essentially an Atom CPU that burns only about 2W of electricity, but can still crank out a pretty good workload. You also have projects like the Raspberry Pi and the Parallella (dual core ARM with 16 or 64 core epiphany co-processor) that run on only 5W a piece, but still churn out nearly 100 Gflops of compute power. If we can make lower power IP cameras, IP phones, WAPs, etc., then we can reduce our power requirements at the switch.

Is this true, legal and safe? :lol: Yes, I sometimes use hik with passive 48V PoE, but newer 24V.
Soo.. Hik can be one wide input range DC-DC converter circuit inside for both 12v and af PoE
or under-voltage detection circuit lack that's not good..
What Hik support says? maybe Hik can be powered with some voltage between 12 and 48V too?

HikVision IR Box camera (DS-2CD8253F-EIZ, infrared and zoom) and 20xx 2nd series fixed Bullet (DS-2CD2012-I, infrared fixed optic) need 12V,
Speed Dome (DS-2DF1-77A, high infrared, zoom, joystick) need 24V

Thanks for reply.
No, i didn't mean PTZ cameras (they are powered by 24V AC), but DS-2CD212, 2032, 2112, 2132 powered by 24V DC from Mikrotik over ethernet.

I'm using only 2032 of that series, but I powered it by 12V (really both switch and camera are powered from 13.8V battery)

Um. Every point of view except the niche ubnt and Mikrotik market. It's like 95% to 5%. Af is better. Plain and simple. There is no room for argument there. The biggest reason Mikrotik and ubnt use it is cost. The same reason they don't put RTCs in their devices.

Hikvision cameras cannot be powered from passive 24 PoE
Mikrotik PoE devices can power other 24 V equipment like UBNT devices not only MT
Mikrotik Should release 48V version of RB260GSP it will be huge hit

Sorry,
I forget to write after:
"I use it to power hikvision and mobotix cameras.... and work flawlessly..."

but for HikVision only I split ethernet and poe at the camera,
I connect the orange/green to the lan port and the both blue(+) and brown(-) with one jack at power port.
For mobotix I use the blue mobotix PoE, but that PoE is powered directly from RB260GSP or RB750UP

Bought Mikrotik 260GSP to power up my HikVision DS-2CD2020-I Camera.
By digging information online, I've found that it needs 12V @ 1A POE. According to manual, this switch is able to output max 1A per port and maximum of voltage it actually receives (24V).

Doesn't work, it shows that power is too low. So I began to wonder maybe I'm stupid, bought power adapter 12V @ 1A and it works flawlessly.
Am I missing something here? Why the hell it doesn't work with POE switch?

Your camera requires 802.3af type of PoE, whereas RB260GSP only supports Passive PoE.

Hello Guys
I have a fast question... It is possible to use 260GSP as repeater Lan?
In this case I should connect a QRT5 wireless CPE with 180 mt. of cable between antenna and Poe.
Can I insert , for instance, at 90 mt this kind of switch without electric alimentation but only with Poe in and output port power connection with antenna?

Thank you to all
Bye
