(PoE-PD) PoE Power & Data Tap with 2 USB Chargers and LAN Connector 


The PoE-PD splits power and network data from the PoE interface. This eliminates the need for AC wall plugs near the powered equipment. As such the PoE-PD eliminates the need to install new AC power outlets and the costs associated with such installations.

The network data is passed through to a conventional RJ45 network connector.

The PoE-PD becomes a 5 Volt DC regulated power supply capable of providing up to 2.0 amperes to a pair of USB A receptacles. The USB receptacles can be used to power a USB peripheral or charge a tablet. The USB receptacles provide power only.

The USB A receptacles operate as USB Chargers with a Direct Charge Port, as defined by the USB Battery Charging specification r1.2.

The USB receptacles can optionally be configured to operate as an iPhone/iPad charger, via standard internal jumpers.


This PoE-PD allows a PoE network to supply power
to non-PoE peripherals. Applications include:

• printers
• magstripe readers
• kiosks and tablets
• security cameras
• POS scanners
• biometric readers



• Power over Ethernet (Class 0)
• Available power wherever LAN cable can be run
• Can supply power for any USB peripheral
• Transforms PoE to 5VDC regulated power supply
• Up to 2.0 amperes to share between devices
• Simultaneously provides Ethernet pass-through
• LAVA Limited Warranty

2 x USB A port (power output only: 5 VDC at 2.0A)
1 x RJ45 LAN port (to wired Ethernet connection)
1 x RJ45 LAN port (to PoE Network Switch)
2 x 6-pin Charger Configuration jumpers (internal)
Depth: 3.3 inches (83 mm)
Width: 3.8 inches (97 mm)
Height: 1.7 inches (44 mm) – with standoffs
Weight: 6.8 oz (192 g) – shipping
Weight: 4.3 oz (122 g) – device only

Note: Power is shared between devices attached to PoE-PD power receptacles, therefore the combined current draw must not exceed 2.0 amperes.

Note: Under no-load the power supply voltage can be up to 5.25 volts, which conforms to USB specifications.
