Product Description

AIR802® has developed a passive Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) kit or set that allows low cost of delivering power over the network cable for shorter distances. This scheme allows power to be carried on 10/100 networks over the spare, unused pairs of a CAT5, CAT5E, or CAT6 Ethernet network cable. On shorter network lengths, the source power could be the power supply that came with the wireless access point, IP video surveillance camera, etc. This set contains a very cost effective injector and breakout or splitter component. The injector inserts the DC voltage at the source location into the 3.5 mm x 1.35 m injector plug. The DC voltage is then carried over the spare pairs of the 10BASE-T or 100BASE-T network cable. The breakout or splitter extracts the DC voltage from the network cable onto the 3.5 mm x 1.35 mm splitter jack. Other models with various DC size connectors are available.

This model is commonly used with Foscam model cameras. Foscam cameras come with 5vdc power supplies. Voltage drops or dissapates naturally over ever foot of cable used. The precise amount of the voltage drop depends on variables like the cable length and quality. There is an abundance of poor quality cable in the market, including patch cords. It is too complex to fully describe here but in general the AWG (size) of the conductor is mis-stated (smaller than than specified) or it may use copper cladded aluminum instead of solid copper as the conductor. Note that Foscam cameras will not work less than 4.5 vdc. Exceeding 1/2 volt loss causes the camera not to operate. Insure quality cable and many are using a higher output power supply, i.e. 6vdc.

*Note our return policy requires any returns to be in the original packaging. Always check the DC connector size prior to ordering.

Active POE recognizes this problem and so it starts with 56V power source (PSE) and only guarantees 36V at 15W after a maximum cable run of 100m (328ft).

Do not try a power adapter with too much voltage or you will toast your Foscam.

I am putting together a home security system that was going to be operated by a PC. These PoE injectors are easy and quick to put into place. It does not get any simpler than opening the package, plug one end into the power adapter and the other into the camera.

For those that don't realize this, the PoE uses the unused pairs of cables in a cat 5 cable and allows power to be transmitted through those lines. It is nice if you need to put a network switch somewhere where power is not easily available.

These injectors allow for any voltage wall wort/device. I don't know the voltage drop off over longer runs, but there will be. You will need to be aware of that limitation. These are a great buy if you are running shorter distances (probably up to 50' or so). I bought the D-Link PoE injector for more money. The D-Link uses a 48 volt transformer and the voltage setting is on the adapter itself. It is limited to 5 or 12 volts to the device. The D-Link, with a 48 volt source, will probably be a better device to use if you are running these to the Cat5 length limit of 100 meters.

There are two plug sizes that I am aware of. Make sure you have the right size plugs before ordering. If you are unsure which size to get, take the device over to Radio Shack. They have plugs that can be used to get the exact size plug. Most devices around are the 5.5mm x 2.1 mm. These plugs are very small and not the typical sized plugs. EDIT: These fit the Foscam FI8908W camera.

Good little device. It appears to be well made and super easy to install.

I ordered these to power my Foscam IP camera's I installed and didn't want to deal with having to run power to them as well. Works great for me so far.

I had a cat5e cable going from the basement to the attic. I had the router and UPS power in basement. installed AP in attic and used this to avoid running separate power to attic. Awesome. wont do gigabit (need all 8 wires for that) but I'm not an enterprise an who needs that on a home AP anyway?

The splitter adapters are advertised to work over a lengthy distance of CAT-5 cable. I have found this to not be the case. Through trial and error I found that the power is transferred reliably over a distance of only 9 feet of high-quality CAT-5 cable. I was really counting on it to work with the long distances of CAT-5 as advertised. As long as I stay within that 9 feet boundary, the splitter works fine. As soon as I go even a little beyond the 9 feet, the power signal drops off and becomes not reliable. Had to reposition a camera because of this. It's workable but not ideal. I would not purchase this product -- I would wait until these passive PoE splitters have been out in the market awhile before more reliable products have been created. The PoE "idea" is great, but it's not quite "there" yet.

I purchased 4 sets of adapters and only 2 worked out. Like the other reviewers, I was setting up Foscam cameras. The 2 cameras that powered-up and function are only using 15-20 feet cable runs. Anything longer and the Foscam might power-up, but will not actually operate. The AIR802 product itself works, but the Foscam power adapter is only 5V and there's too much voltage drop by time it reaches the camera. Do not try a power adapter with too much voltage or you will toast your Foscam. It happened to me when I hooked up a CCTV power distribution box not realizing it was 12VDC output.

These things are great! The only thing is to make sure you get the right size plug. I had to buy 2 before I got it right.

This doesn't work for cables longer than a few feet. I tried this with FOSCAM IP cameras and it didn't work for cables longer than 5 feet. The voltage drop across it is too much. While this is just the physics of the 24AWG cable that this and most CAT5e cables use I expected the company to be upfront and disclose "your mileage may vary" disclaimer.

Active POE recognizes this problem and so it starts with 56V power source (PSE) and only guarantees 36V at 15W after a maximum cable run of 100m (328ft). For this AIR802 adapter to work across any appreciable length of cable you have to be powering a very low power device or use a higher voltage power adapter than your equipment needs. The problem with using a higher voltage adapter is that you can't easily tell what the voltage drop is going to be and so you can damage your equipment.

Unfortunately I bought 6 pairs before discovering that they don't work - I should have known better instead of taking the manufacturer's words on face value.
