Hi,

 

Does TP-Link have any POE powered switches that don't need any power adapters?
Like small 5-8 ports? and Omada compatible if possible. Have looked but uncertain of the data in the spec.

Thanks

@HA4g3n 

Yes the TL-SG2008 has a PD input port. Its a great feature and you would think it would be advertised more.

Specs are here:
https://www.tp-link.com/ca/business-networking/omada-sdn-switch/tl-sg2008/#specifications

Under "Power Supply" - Obtain Power from PoE Source

Plus I have seen with my own eyes lol

Yes, i tried both port 1 and 8 and no luck but the cable is quite long so i just tried for fun and only bonus if it had worked.
Can you confirm the SE variant can be powered on the port 8 POE without a power supply?


Hardware information that OC Controller posts:
Model: TL-SG2008P v1.0

S/N : 22121F0001154
Firmware Version : 1.0.2 Build 20210806 Rel.55686

 

 Kind note that TL-SG2008P is a different model from TL-SG2008.

 

The former is a PoE switch, it cannot work as a PD to be powered up via PoE, but can only power up other PDs.

The latter is a non-PoE switch, it can work as a PD to be powered up via PoE through the PD port (Port 8).

 

Edit:

TL-SG2008 V3 and above hardware version support Omada SDN.

TL-SG2008P V1 and above hardware version support Omada SDN.

@EIBROG 

Thanks, yes agreed! should be adverticed alot more! :) 
 

Power Supply • 12 VDC/1 A External Adapter or
• Obtain Power from PoE Source
 


I actually have installed this one at a customer and the POE source did not work as a power source and the reason for that is the length of the cable i guess. It's longer then 50-60meters so it was a "long"shot.
Thank will use these more.


EDIT:
Actually the reason i ask is because the information of the device is different once again depending on the region you read about it. I guess this feature is not available in the Swedish version?

CA version --> https://www.tp-link.com/se/business-networking/omada-sdn-switch/tl-sg2008p/v1/#specifications

Power Supply • External Power Adapter (Output: 53.5 VDC/ 1.31 A)

@HA4g3n

The information on the Sweden TP-Link website may be incorrect, I'll report this to the website team to check and correct it.

The link you attached above is for TL-SG2008P rather than TL-SG2008, by the way.

 

I actually have installed this one at a customer and the POE source did not work as a power source and the reason for that is the length of the cable i guess. It's longer then 50-60meters so it was a "long"shot.

 

As you mentioned that you have installed this one, may I confirm the model number and hardware version of the switch you installed?

Do you connect the power source and the switch via the PD port (Port 8) on the switch?

Hi @Fae 

Thank you for that :)


Yes, i tried both port 1 and 8 and no luck but the cable is quite long so i just tried for fun and only bonus if it had worked.
Can you confirm the SE variant can be powered on the port 8 POE without a power supply?

@Fae 

ahh okey, so TL-SG2008 is a smart switch that does not support Omada and POE out but POE-in.

And TL-SG2008P is a smart switch that do supports POE+ out and Omada Cloud but cannot be powered by a POEin but just a power adapter.

Thanks for that verification.

Not exactly, TL-SG2008 V3 and above hardware version support Omada SDN.
