I tried to use a standard Linksys PoE injector to power up an AP-135. They work well with the AP-65. I got a green light but nothing would happen. I don't know if something is wrong with the injector but wanted to see if there is a different power requirements for the AP-135 that requires a different kind of injector.
Thanks for your help,
Does the AP-135 require a PoE+ (802.3at) complient injector?
Is it underpowered with a PoE (802.3af) complient injector?
It does not require a POE+ injector, but some lower-cost POE injectors do not put out the required amount of power at distance....
I appreciate your response.
The AP-135 installation guide says it is 802.3at complient but says nothing about 802.3af.
This has me confused and feeling unsure about the power requirements. Is there a reason it is documented in this manner?
I do not know about the documentation, but I know that power drops the longer the cable gets. For enterprise manufacturers, they can be expected to provide full power over 300 feet. For other non-enterprise manufacturer this is not the case. I would just get a POE+ injector. Either way, the combination of a consumer-grade 802.3af power injector and the AP-135 are not a good fit.
Thanks for your input :)
