Through twisted pair Ethernet cabling, Power over Ethernet (PoE) simultaneously distributes power and data. This technology enhances network scalability and agility in an efficient manner. The PoE switch, PoE splitter, PoE injector, etc. are only a few examples of the various PoE device kinds. The PoE injector is the main topic of this article: What it is? How does it function? Exists a variety of types? How is it put in place? Power over Ethernet (PoE) equipment requires a device that adds power to an Ethernet cable. Although PoE-capable Ethernet switches are available, millions of conventional “non-PoE” switches are in use and are still being installed.
As previously mentioned, these (also known as PoE midspan or PoE adapters) are utilized to enable PoE device compatibility on LAN switch ports that are not PoE. Low-power devices that need to be deployed in challenging locations without access to power outlets are perfect candidates for a PoE injector. This provides power at a low cost without affecting the structures of existing buildings. The AE Connect PoE+ & PoE++ Injectors AEIN-PIG301 and AEIN-PIG901 fully comply with the IEEE 802.3af/at and IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standards respectively that can be used with all PoE+ and PoE++ compliant PDs (Powered Devices) or other equivalent products to expand your network to areas without power lines or outlets where you want to fix devices like an access point, IP camera, or IP phone, among others.
Direct current (DC) power is supplied or injected into network cables by PoE injectors to power network devices. They go by the terms midspans and midspan hubs as well. Ethernet, a well-liked LAN technology, can now carry DC power along with data packets thanks to a PoE injector adapter. As a result, there is no longer a need for individual power cords, which reduces wiring expenses and facilitates troubleshooting. PoE injectors follow IEEE 802.3af, a power distribution standard created by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, just like other PoE equipment (IEEE). The 802.3af standard includes two operating modes: Type A, which transmits data and power over Ethernet’s identical data pairs, and Type B, which transmits power on unused pairs. A PoE injector can help supply both power and data to these PDs at distances of up to 100 meters when Ethernet switches or other devices lack PoE functionality yet must support PDs (Powered Devices) such as PoE IP cameras, PoE wireless access points (WAP), PoE lights, and so on. In order to power low-voltage PoE devices, a PoE injector frequently converts alternating current to direct current. Our PoE injectors provide high performance and are easy to use.
Benefits Of PoE+ & PoE++ Injector :
Powers More Devices
Midspan PoE Injector provides a plug-and-play PoE solution with up to 30 W, 60 W, and 90 W of output power transmission capacity. The IEEE 802.3af/at/bt PoE (+, ++) and Gigabit speeds of the PoE Injectors allow them to be used in applications where high bandwidth needs are necessary. More power-hungry PoE devices can be added than ever before.
One RJ45 Ethernet connection may supply both power and data to the connected device thanks to PoE Injectors, which save installation costs and do away with the need for specialized PoE equipment. Taking into consideration the significant benefits of a midspan power injector, AE Connect provides cost-efficient PoE solutions. Through the elimination of the need for a local power supply, this PoE solution liberates network devices from the constraints of power availability. By doing so, deployment time is shortened along with the necessity for specific electrical outlets in hard-to-reach locations.
With a powered device (PD), PoE Injectors intelligently transmit the maximum current available. This safety feature guard against damage by preventing the device from turning on if there is insufficient current. When the current reaches 350 mA for IEEE 802.3af PoE or 600 mA for IEEE 802.3at PoE, or in the event of an electrical short circuit, this safety function can also instantly shut the port.
Features Of PoE Injectors
Power over Ethernet increases flexibility
With the help of the IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, it is possible to transmit both data and power via a single twisted-pair connection. Shared cabling decreases installation costs, reduces the amount of space needed for cables, and gives more placement freedom by removing the link to a power source.
Alternating current electricity is connected using a standard IEC plug. Installation is done inline using CAT 5e Ethernet cables.
For use in virtually any environment
Due to its worldwide AC input voltage rating of 100 to 240 VAC and significant safety clearances like UL/cUL, CE, and FCC, the power injector is usable everywhere.
Compact and easy to use
The case is only 140 x 65 mm in size (5.5 x 2.6 in). Diagnostic and indication LEDs show ON and fault statuses for quick troubleshooting.
Types Of PoE Injectors
30 W PoE+ Injector
The AEIN-PIG301, 2 Port Gigabit PoE+ midspan provides Gigabit Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) over a single Ethernet connection by fusing electrical power with Gigabit network speeds. It is a 30 W midspan designed to give PoE-enabled devices, including PTZ IP cameras or 802.11ac wireless access points, data, and up to 35 W of power. This robust 802.3 af & 802.3 at PoE Injector removes the requirement for a nearby power outlet and linked power supply, allowing you to put your PoE device anywhere in a building, such as on ceilings or close to entryways.

AE Connect AEIN-PIG901 is a 2 port indoor 802.3bt PoE midspan that can provide up to 90 W of power based on the IEEE 802.3bt standard. It is used for remote powering of current as well as emerging high-power applications. The 90w midspan, AEIN-PIG901 is designed to power PoE-compliant devices such as IEEE 802.11ax access points, Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ), dome cameras, IP videophones, and other high-power Ethernet end terminals requiring up to 90 W of power.

With a PoE injector adapter, there is no requirement for AC/DC power sources or plugs because data and power can be sent over a regular Ethernet line. This minimizes the cost because installing new equipment in places without power doesn’t require an electrician. Regular Ethernet networking cabling is also readily available and reasonably priced, and it is frequently already installed in the place. There are fewer sites of failure in general when using PoE technology. The PoE-powered devices are guaranteed to deliver steady power when you connect your PoE switch to an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), which is crucial for mission-critical devices like a PoE security camera. The time-consuming procedure of running data and power cables from the network switch to the PDs (Powered Devices) can be eliminated with a PoE injector. The PoE midspan is quick and affordable, which saves both time and money. AE Connect manufactures the best-in-class PoE injectors that are affordable and come with a 3-year warranty.
