PowerBox Pro not powering with POE in

Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:47 pm

I just received a new PowerBox Pro this morning. I can power it through the power jack without problem, however, when I plug eth1 into a POE switch (even with a short cable), the Powerbox Pro does not power on.
Is there a hidden setting somewhere that I need to change to accept 802.3af for POE in?
Or did I get a faulty unit?

Your switch is most likely not Passive PoE, but 802.3af/at. This device must receive Passive PoE:

PoE in Passive PoE
PoE in input Voltage 12-57 V

Then you would need to revise the brochure as it is clearly stated:
"It also supports passive or standard 802.3at/af PoE input/output."

That was for me the main interest of the Powerbox Pro compared to the standard one (in addition to the sfp).

I power on my PowerBox pro using Passive PoE IN (Power Supply + PoE Injector) and works OK. I no have any PoE switch to do the test.

I guess they never got around to fixing the brochure, https://i.mt.lv/cdn/product_files/PowerBox_200318.pdf still says this today.
