AP134 and Power Injector

Hi All,

 

I have the following strange behavior regarding AP134.

 

If I connect them on POE switches (802.3af) they work without problems.

I have an error about the insufficien POE voltage on eth1 but I have read on the manuale that it's correct:

 

Shutting down eth1 due to insufficient POE voltage

 

If I use power injectors, AP134 power on (power led is green), but the eth0 port is not able to goes up:

Time out

 

The ETH0 led is not power on.

 

If I connect on the same power injector an AP105, it works without problems....

 

Is it possible?

Someone can help me?

 

Thanks,

Gian

Re: AP134 and Power Injector

What is the model power injector?  The AP125 could draw more power than the AP105.

Re: AP134 and Power Injector

Thanks Cjoseph for your support.

 

The power injector is a common object (ARP product). 

From the AP134 DS I read:

 

POWER
• 48 volts DC 802.3af power over Ethernet (PoE) or 802.3at PoE+
- Note: when using 802.3af POE, the second Ethernet port is disabled. It is enabled when using an 802.3at POE power source (or direct DC power).

 

I was hoping that 802.3af was enough.

 

Best Regards

gianti81,

 

I would try a different model of power injector and see if you achieve the same result, because they are not all created equal.  It does work with POE.
