One thing is limitation on PoE out current on some devices. I guess it is nice to have possibility to power some low-powered device directly off main router or switch. Example of such device would be simple WAP - single frequency, not many Tx chains.Why then the support POE is made on hEX S?
Hi, I have similar problem here with these two boxes, but my hAP ac2 does not power up at all and hEX S' ether5 LED periodically (approx 1s) blinks red for short time (<100ms). Before hEX S, the power supplying box was RB2011 with PoE-out on ether10 and I've experienced no problems with powering hAP ac2.Hi, I use mikrotik hex s and hap ac2 ( hap ac2 - poe in ). hex s has 24V 1,2A power supply, but hap ac2 works unstable - I think it does not have enough power. What do I need to do - replace the power supply with a more powerful one?
On hEX S there are only two PoE-out modes - off and forced-on. Auto mode is not configurable:Did you force poe to on on the hEX S when powering the hAP ac2 or left it on auto?
/interface ethernet poe> set ether5 poe-out=auto-on failure: This model does not support poe-out auto-on mode
Would try latest 6.42.7 (make sure firmware is updated on System > Routerboard too). Failing that, would write support, linking to this post.
I didn't include supout.rif in the support case, because the displayable PoE status (print/monitor) on hEX S didn't show anything bad and nothing relevant was logged (turned on logging all about "poe-out", regardless level), so there will be no useful info about the problem in supout.rif, I think.Ondrej, did you include a supout.rif file taken while the problem was happening? do so...
Do same 2011 port powers a 100BT device fine?Yes, in all cases they were providing power to wap ac
