Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that defines the transmission of both data and power to networked devices over a standard Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for separate power supplies. PoE+ is the new IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet standard. It provides the opportunity for switch makers to increase port-power output to 30 watts and will supersede the previous 15 watt 802.3af standard. The specification of this new 802.3at standard is backward compatible, supporting legacy 802.3af devices.
The 85732 series, 12-port and 85735, 8 port PoE+ Enabled Gigabit Magnetic Jacks with integrated gigabit magnetics are designed for use in high port-count gigabit switches and routers and extend Molex’s product offering for multi-port magnetic jacks to meet a wider range of customer applications.
The modules are designed with through-hole pins for wave soldering. Transmission is according to the IEEE802.3ab standard.
