Hi everyone,

 

Just asking a dumb question about the EAP110. It has 24V passive Poe and a Poe Adapter is given in the box.
Do we must use the Poe Adapter ? I mean ; does a "24v Passive Poe Switch" that could use the EAP110 without Poe Adapter, just an ethernet cable, exists (even from another manufacturer) ?

 

Thanks for reading :)

Yes. I operate EAP110-Outdoor and Pharos devices on an EdgePoint R6 from UBNT. I did already ask TP-Link product management about possible plans to manufacture such a device, but they told me that they have no plans to do so.

 

The EP-R6 includes a 24V/1.4A power injector using all 4 pairs of the cable connected to the RJ45 PoE IN port 1 (thus it's a Gigbait port), which is capable of driving up to two CPEs or up to three EAP110-Outdoor at the same time. On the output ports it provides 24V up to 0.7A per port over only two pairs of the connected cable (passive PoE), so it is compatible with the PoE method(s) used by EAP110-Outdoor, EAP225-Outdoor and all Pharos devices.

 

If you use an external power supply, you can feed the EP-R6 with up to 3A current through a terminal block connector, yielding a total of 72W power budget for all devices connected to its five RJ45 ports. The 6th IF is connected to a SFP slot, which is ideal for fiber connections to achieve a galvanic isolation of your indoor equipment.

 

Albeit the EP-R6 is a router, you can configure it to work as a switch, too. Compared to the much more expensive EP-S16 (a true switch, but w/o GUI) you get four EP-R6 for the price of one EP-S16, so you have 16 RJ45 ports and 4 additional SFP slots.

 

If used as a router, it offers hardware off-loading with a NAT throughput of up to 900 Mbps (you need to turn HW off-loading on, it's disabled by default, thus yielding only 340 Mbps NAT throughput). The EP-R6 runs Debian 7 Linux and most important IMHO: it gives you full access to the Open Source OS, meaning it probably could even run TP-Link's Pharos Control or EAP Controller locally, although that would add load to the CPU not available anymore for routing/switching/firewalling etc. 

 

 

This photo is from an older installation with two Pharos CPE510. At the moment the EP-R6 feeds an EAP110-Outdoor and soon will supply another EAP225-Outdoor to be deployed next days or so.

Hi Justarandom,

 

Thanks for your suggestion about our products. Actually, we are developing the Omada PoE switches with passive poe while compatible with 802.3af PoE. Sorry for waiting and we will push them to the market asapwink

Hello Gary_Wen,

 

that's good news! Will there be an outdoor version of this new switch?

 

With an EAP225-Outdoor mesh such a switch would be very useful on camping grounds, pools and City WiFi, which often have only line voltage available, but no Ethernet cabling.

 

Alternatively, a power injector with extended temperature range of -40º to 70º C would fit also for such installations.

Why not to consider? :) Thanks R1D2

@justarandom : One exists from UTT global and its product page:

 

http://www.uttglobal.com/default.asp?id=3557

 

Known handicap is that its a to 10/100 switch and *unmanaged (like injector). I have used this previously to power one Ubiquiti Loco M5 and one Ubiquiti Loco M3 reliably, and though not tested for Tplink gear, I am hoping it will also work with Tplink Passive PoE devices.
