POE(Power Over Ethernet) GLC Evaluation Board
The POE GLC evaluation board can be powered using the spare pair in the CAT5e cable (pins 4 & 5 and pins 7 & 8), and / or over the data pair through on-board IEEE802.3at compliant magnetics.
The input data and power is supplied to the board through connector J1. The data is passed through to the peripheral equipment via J2, with the power form the POE GLC module is supplied via J3 to J7 (see Figure 1 & 4).
Before using the POE GLC evaluation board, it is important to setup the output configuration jumpers for the product that is going to be use.
Figure 1: Board Layout
Figure 2 shows the basic set up using the POE evaluation board with a High Power Midspan or Endspan.
The equipment required: -
Midspan or Endspan PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment)
Peripheral (or Test) Equipment
Output power cable

Using the Board
Figure 3 shows an example set-up using an POE GLC powered by a Phihong POE60U-560(G)-SS-R Midspan and supplying +12V to a Vivotek PZ6122 (or PZ6112) ethernet camera.
The PC ethernet port is connected to the data input of the POE60U-560(G)-SS-R (PSE) via a short Cat5e patch cable. The Data & Power output from the POE60U-560(G)-SS-R is connected to the input of the POE GLC evaluation board (J1) via a CAT5e crossover cable. The data output (J2) of the POE GLC evaluation board is connected to the data port of the ethernet camera via a short CAT5e patch cable. The +12V (parallel configuration) power output from the POE GLC evaluation board (J7) connects to the dc input of the Vivotek PZ6122 ethernet camera.
