Safety Information
Important Safety Information
Installation and removal of the PoE Midspan must be
carried out by qualified personnel only.
♦ AC Power Cord Set:
The power cord must have regulatory agency
approval for the specific country in which it is
used (i.e., UL, CSA, VDE, etc.).
The power cord must be a three-conductor type
(two current carrying conductors; one ground
conductor) terminated on one end by an IEC
60320 appliance coupler (for connection to the
PoE Midspan), and on the other end by a plug
containing a ground (earthing) contact.
The power cord must be rated for a minimum of
250Vac RMS operation, with a minimum rated
current capacity of 5 amps (or a minimum wire
gauge of 18 AWG (0.75mm2)). Note: PoE
Midspan units installed in Australia require power
cords with a minimum wire gauge of 16 AWG
(1.0 mm2).
♦ The AC wall socket-outlet must be near the PoE
Midspan and easily accessible. You can remove AC
power from the PoE Midspan by disconnecting the
AC power cord from either the wall socket-outlet or
the PoE Midspan appliance coupler.
The PoE Midspan data and data / power interfaces are
qualified as SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage) circuits
according to IEC 60950. These interfaces can only be
connected to SELV interfaces on other equipment.

Product Name: PowerDsine 3001
It is PowerDsine’s policy to improve its products as new
technology, components, software, and firmware
become available. PowerDsine, therefore, reserves the
right to change specifications without prior notice.
Read the installation instructions before connecting the
PoE Midspan to its power source.
• Follow basic electricity safety measures whenever
connecting the PoE Midspan to its power source.
• This product relies on the building installation for shortcircuit (over current) protection. Ensure that a fuse or
circuit breaker no larger than 120 VAC, 3A. U.S. (240
VAC, 1.5A international) is used on the phase conductor.
• A voltage mismatch can cause equipment damage and
may pose a fire hazard. If the voltage indicated on the
label is different from the power outlet voltage, do not
connect the PoE Midspan to this power outlet.
The PoE Midspan "Data In" and "Data & Power Out" ports are
shielded RJ-45 data sockets. They cannot be used as Plain
Old Telephone Service (POTS) telephone sockets. Only RJ-45
data connectors may be connected to these sockets.

Functions and Features
The device is design to meet the IEEE802.3af standard. The
Power over Ethernet (PoE) Midspan adds 48VDC to unused
(non-data) wires in standard Category 5 Ethernet cable. As a
result, the PoE Midspan delivers both data and power to the
EMC Compliance: Category 5 foiled twisted-pair cables must
be used to ensure compliance with requirements of FCC
Part 15, subpart B, Class B. The use of unshielded cables
(Category 5 for 10BASE-T ports or for 100BASE-Tx ports)
complies with Class A requirements.
Preliminary Steps
• Ensure AC power is applied to the PoE Midspan, using an
operational AC cable with an appropriate ground connection.
• Ensure that output Ethernet cable is connected to the
Data & Power Out port.
• Verify that power ready Ethernet compatible device is
Do not use cross over cable between the PoE Midspan
output port and the load device!
The PoE Midspan may be or wall/bench mounted using the
rear side holes.
NOTES: Before mounting the PoE Midspan to a fixed location:
• Do not to cover the PoE Midspan or block the airflow to the
PoE with any foreign objects. Keep the PoE Midspan away
from excessive heat and humidity, and free from vibration
and dust.
• Ensure that the cable length from the Ethernet network
source to the terminal does not exceed 100 meters (333
Feet). The PoE is not a repeater and does not amplify the
Ethernet data signal.
• Use a splitter if desired; ensure that the splitter is connected
close to the terminal and not on the Midspan!
• No “on-off” switch exists; Simply plug the PoE Midspan into
an AC power source.
Installing the Unit
• Connect the PoE Midspan to an AC outlet (100-240 VAC),
using a standard power cord.
• Connect the unit Data In jack (input) to the remote Ethernet
network switch Patch panel and the Data & Power Out jack
(output) to the terminal.

Corrective Steps
1. Verify that a known-good power
cord is used.
2. Verify that the voltage at the power
inlet is between 100 and 240 Vac.
3. Remove and re-apply power to the
device and check the indicators
during power up sequence.
1. The Midspan did not detect a PD
and therefore the port is not
2. Verify that the PD is designed for
PoE operation.
3. Verify that you are using a standard
cable, with four pairs.
4. If an external power splitter is in
use, replace it with a known-good
5. Ensure input Ethernet cable is
connected to the Data In port.
6. Verify that the PD is connected to
the Data & Power port.
7. Try to reconnect the same PD into a
different Midspan. If it works, there
is probably a faulty port or RJ-45
8. Verify that there is no short over any
of the twisted pair cables or over the
RJ45 connectors.
1. Verify that the port indicator on the
front panel is continuously lit.
2. If an external power splitter is in use,
replace it with a known-good splitter.
3. Verify that for this link, you are using
standard UTP/FTP Category 5
straight (non-crossover) cabling,
with all four pairs.
4. Verify that the Ethernet cable length
is less than 100 meters from the
Ethernet source to the load/remote
5. Try to reconnect the same PD into a
different Midspan. If it works, there
is probably a faulty port or RJ-45
