Magnetic Jacks – PoE Plus Integrated PDJack™

Magnetic Jacks – PoE Plus Integrated PDJack™

The Molex PDJack with integrated Power Device controller circuitry plus Ethernet connectivity simplifies PoE Plus implementation for any network device, reducing time-to-market, lowering costs and achieving considerable PCB space savings. Based on the RJ45 connector, the magnetic PDJackTM is the first integrated PD (Power Device) Jack in the market to combine a PoE+ PD controller and bridge rectifiers with gigabit magnetics in one connector and provide a complete drop-in, single-port solution.

Situated on the customer printed circuit board (PCB), the PDJack supplies 54 V power of up to 25.5 W. Two pins output power and standard signal pins provide Ethernet connectivity. Additional pins allow power-up of external DC-DC converter. The PDJack manages all the communications with the switch/router PoE controllers: negotiating power requirements and managing safe power-up and power down of PD devices such as IP phones, IP cameras, wireless access points, control panels, vision systems, and point-of-sale (POS) units.
