    Hi All,

    I am looking at a PoE Access Point:


    for a customer. It uses "Power: Via PoE PD port: 48 V, 0.35 A".
    What is a "PD Port"? Looking at the manual (page 10)


    the connector looks like a RJ45 with a screw housing around it.
    Can a use a standard PoE switch to power it? And is this "PD
    Port" just an outdoor version of an RJ45?

    Many thanks,

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you!

    I did not get very far with Google, as "Port" got me every
    geographic location in the world. Hundreds and hundreds of
    places are named "Port this or that".

    I have also noticed that vendors are not very clear about
    stating which end of the PoE you are on. I think that was
    part of my confusion.

    48 V? Is that a typo? Should it be 4.8 V?

    Any idea what type of shroud goes over that connector?
