Tags: #PoE
Model: EAP650  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.13 Build 20240131 Rel. 45057

I want to be extra careful with new EAP650's.

 

I want to use the TL-POE4824G Passive PoE Adapter (48V 24W) to power the EAP650 (V1 US).

 

(i.e. I'm not going to use the power adapter nor a PoE switch.)

 

I have read in the datasheet where it clearly states that 48V passive PoE is possible.  However, the installation guide only shows two methods: supplied power adapter or PoE switch.

 

Is there a negative side to using only passive POE vs POE managed by the 802.11at(af) PoE switch?

 

Thank you.

 Hi @CrownOmada

 

Yes, you can use TL-POE4824G to power up the EAP650. Using Passive POE or standard POE has no big difference, but passive POE makes the Ethernet cables in your network deployment more complicated.

Hi @CrownOmada

 

1. Learn about the power supply mode, polarities and link-loss detection mode your powered devices support. They should be respectively, Alternative A, the line pair 1/2 being passive pole and the line pair 3/6 being positive pole, and DC link-loss detection mode.
2. Figure out the PoE kind your devices support and the corresponding protocol.

Let's not make this more complicated than necessary.

 

I shouldn't have to:

We are talking about the TP-Link EAP650.  A popular choice among the readers here I assume.

 

My question is:

 

Is it OK to run the TP-Link EAP650 with passive PoE supplied by the TP-Link TL-POE4824G?  Or is this less than optimal (or possibly detrimental to the performance or longevity) of the EAP650?

 

Is an 802.3af/at-compliant PoE switch a safer/better option?

 

Thank you in advance.
