• What is a PD port?

    From Todd@110:110/2002 to All on Tue Aug 27 16:53:10 2013
    Hi All,

    I am looking at a PoE Access Point:

    http://www.intellinet-network.com/en-US/products/8836-wireless-300n-outdoor-poe -access-point

    for a customer. It uses "Power: Via PoE PD port: 48 V, 0.35 A".
    What is a "PD Port"? Looking at the manual (page 10)

    http://www.intellinet-network.com/downloads/5788-524711_02_man_CD.pdf

    the connector looks like a RJ45 with a screw housing around it.
    Can a use a standard PoE switch to power it? And is this "PD
    Port" just an outdoor version of an RJ45?

    Many thanks,
    -T

    The internet genie seems to indicate that PoE PD indicates a "powered device" as opposed to PoE PSE which would be "power source equipment".

    All that would be on std rj45 connectors. Weather proofing is unrelated.

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you!

    I did not get very far with Google, as "Port" got me every
    geographic location in the world. Hundreds and hundreds of
    places are named "Port this or that".

    I have also noticed that vendors are not very clear about
    stating which end of the PoE you are on. I think that was
    part of my confusion.

    48 V? Is that a typo? Should it be 4.8 V?

    Any idea what type of shroud goes over that connector?

    -T
