The PoE HAT (recommended hardware)

Thu Aug 23, 2018 2:54 am

Maybe a good idea to list people experience with various PoE switch or injectors with the new Pi HAT

Still waiting for my POE HAT to arrive.

Going to get a cheaper TP-LInk injector. But ultimately it will be used with my UniFi Switch.

What brands and models have people used with already with no issues?

i use a cisco sg300mpp poe switch and a poe splitter

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

one word of note, this splitter only works on 100 mbit, so set your port speed to 100 mbit.
gigabit port speed will not work with this device. dont rely on auto duplex as it will just default to gigabit probably, set you port speed manually to 100 mbit.

my new pi uses the poe hat.
my older pi's use the splitter

I am currently using an 8 port POE sswitch from Dlink - DGS-1100-08P

Detailed info on the switch can be found here: http://ca.dlink.com/products/1100-serie ... oe-switch/

No switch related issues have been found. One feature that I like is that I can display the current power consumption per port and I can also see the total power consumed across the switch. Also I can enable/disable each port separately. Nide feature set.

Is that booting from the USB drive or booting from sdcard and just using the drive for storage?

I ask as I've not been able to boot from USB via PoE.

Unifi US-8-150w here.

No, it's booting from the SD card, the drive is hosting the music files used by the forked-daapd iTunes server.

Cisco SG500 switches work
Cisco SG300 do not unless you disable autonegotiation and set the link speed to 100M

[I suspect the boot-from-USB problem is the 'powering USB from the PoE HAT' known issue]

You may want to look at https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 5&t=220984 before buying.

But to answer the question asked, I have a Netgear GS108PE which works just fine.
Headless PI. OMG, someone cut it's head off. Oh, hang on. it didn't have one to start with.

I'm using the ALE OmniSwitch 6450-P10 to power up my Raspberry Pi with POE Hat. It works fine, but then I run into the USB power issue as already discussed in the other thread.

Pi is connected on port 5, the power used cycles between 2700 - 4500 mW.

Code: Select all

OS6450-P10-> show lanpower 1
