Rack Mount POE Injector Surge Protector

GIGE-POE is a POE injector/Extractor with surge protection added.  It is used to insert or remove power from an ethernet data line.
However it does not provide the power.  The power (or load) must come from and external device.  That is what the two terminal green connector is for.  You can select which pairs and which polarities you want on the pairs with jumpers.
The pluggable green terminal block is where you connect the external power source or load.
If you already have a POE port that is powering your equipment you should just use our GIGE-APC surge protectors.  They pass through whatever power is already there.
 The GIGE-POE-APC will block any power that is already on the line and divert that power to the two terminal connector.

Designed to be used with the popular   PRM4 and PRM24 1RU Rack Mount Chassis made by APC.  We also sell a PRM4 4 slot rack that is Din Rail Mount.

Universal POE Injection or Extraction for any POE circuit. 0-56 Volts AC or DC

Also compatible with the following Trango radios:

  • Apex Lynx
  • Apex Orion
  • Apex Plus
  • StrataLink 24

Rack Mount GigE POE Injector Surge Protector-Suppressor-Arrestor.

Especially flexible POE Configuration.  Jumpers allow any combination of polarity on any and pair.  Moreover, up to 1 amp per pair (with high current transformer option) allows almost any POE device to be powered. (.350 amps default per wire max recommended for most RJ45 devices). Therefore if all 8 wires are configured as the same polarity, 4 amps can be conveyed.

(This presumes high current transformer option is selected).


This device will convey power to 802.3af/at devices or extract power from a POE powered circuit. (User must provide appropriate power supply of course).  Shielded RJ45 jacks provide grounds to shielded plugs.

    Simple query I think.

    What’s the easiest way to go purchasing this from a distributor? I will have a quarterly bump in my requirement for this device.

    Otherwise, the unit that I bought was highly intuitive in terms of usage. Good job in designing the unit!

    Subject: Re: [AFMUG] GIGE-APC Surge suppressors

    We either had a really bad power surge or a very close lightning strike at our NOC over the weekend. No visible signs of a direct strike to the tower. I’m leaning towards the power surge since other networked things in the office died, and our office telco/network closet is uplinked to the server room via a pair of fiber. Railroad stuff was all messed up at several crossings. And other businesses nearby lost various electronics as well.

    Two AF24’s and an AF5. GigE-APCs at the bottom weren’t burned up, but were obviously dead. The AF POE injectors all shut down when plugged into them. The GigE-SS’s on top apparently stopped the surge from hitting the radios. After I bypassed the GigE-APCs at the bottom, the ethernet links would only run at 100Mbps, plus errors. After bypassing the GigE-SS’s on top this morning, all three are running GigE again with no errors. So that saved a lot of work today.

    However, it wasn’t so good for the 5GHz 450i cluster at the top. Don’t know how, but one survived. We relied on the 450’s built-in suppression at the top. Didn’t happen. The GigE-APCs were all dead. So yeah, you should probably just run GigE-SS’s near a radio, even if it claims surge suppression is built in.

    The PacketFlux PowerInjector+Sync had two of the ports with visible damage on the board. Took out the SiteMonitor Base unit with it. Forrest, if you want these for failure analysis, just let me know. I’d be happy to send them to you. When I got the office, the green LED was flashing 2, and I believe port #2 was a damaged one. It also took out all four of those ports on the CCR1036.

    I’ve seen similar events over the years and this clearly looks like bottom up, i.e. utility surge. And of course the one thing I forgot after doing the generator and transfer switches…. the f’n whole panel surge suppressor. I would’ve moved the existing one over to the other panel, but I needed different breakers.

    Bottom line, use MTC surge suppressors top and bottom and your life will be better.*
