The new PoE to USB-C adapter, PD-USB-DP60 from Microchip Technology comes with a high power capability that converts both power and data. This device offers up to 60W USB output power via an Ethernet cable supported by PoE infrastructure. It can connect to a variety of PoE sources with various standards deployed and supports newer IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standards as well as legacy PoE standards.
The PD-USB-DP60 PoE to USB-C adapter can accept up to 90W of PoE and convert it to 60W output over USB-C that can power cameras, laptops, tablets, and other devices using USB-C for input power. It reduces dependency on AC infrastructure by simplifying the installation process. It also enhances the remote power management capabilities of the USB-C power device.
The remote power reset capability of this PoE source allows power cycling via the web interface or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to reset the device, thereby eliminating the need to manually unplug and restart at the location of the equipment. Additionally, the adapter can be paired with Microchip’s cost-effective single-port and multi-port (up to 24) PoE injectors/midspans and switches that comply with IEEE 802.3af/at/bt industry standards and provide up to 90W power per port. If a lower power is needed to power the USB-C device, IEEE802.3af (15.4W) or IEEE802.3at (30W) PoE sources can be used. The PoE to USB-C adapter is available now for $100.00 each from the Microchip sales representative and authorized worldwide distributor.
