Ag8100 series of modules are designed to extract power from a conventional twisted pair Category 5 Ethernet cable, conforming to the IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE
The Ag8100 signature and control circuit provides the PoE compatibility signature and power classification required by the Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) before applying up to 15W power to the port. The Ag8100 is compatible with Class 0 to Class 3 equipment. The high efficiency DC/DC converter operates over a wide input voltage range and provides a non-isolated regulated low ripple and low noise output. The DC/DC converter also has built-in output overload, output short-circuit and over-temperature protection.
