Use official display with Power over Ethernet hat

Thu Apr 18, 2019 4:22 pm

Hi,
I want to use the official POE board with the Official display. The power specs are compatible. Whats the best way to wire this given the POE hat does not have pins on top.

It’s not very easy to do as you have to extend the pins on the Pi GPIO and POE connectors with headers and then hope the fan etc does not touch the screen. Have a look here for an example - you may want to add another set of headers to give room for the fan to pull air and avoid any contact with the display :lol: :roll: :lol:

You may want to have a look at this as an option.

Output from one of the Pis USB ports to the microUSB power input on the display should do it.
