Description

This product is compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3

The Pi PoE Switch HAT is a power over ethernet add-on board for the Raspberry Pi that brings the Pi Supply Switch technology together with PoE all in one fantastic package! You can now power your Raspberry Pi and provide an Ethernet connection in any location with just a single cable. Perfect for removing the clutter of wires and for reliable use in remote locations.

We have been working very hard on all of the technical features so that you don’t have to!

Technical Specification

  • Fully 802.3af (mode A and B) compliant active power over Ethernet
  • Includes optional jumper that toggles the power functionality
    • If you keep the jumper on, your Pi PoE will power on after holding the power button for two seconds
    • If you take the jumper off, your Pi PoE will power on as soon as you apply power from your injector (If you don’t have a PoE Injector yet, you can pick one up here!)
  • Contains physical layer power negotiation circuitry, presenting itself as a Class 0 device
  • Fully isolated switched mode power supply (SMPS) – 1500V isolation input to output
  • Overload and short circuit protection
  • Over temperature protection
  • High efficiency (up to 87%) regulated output
  • Input voltage 36-56V, output voltage 5V, output current 10-1300mA, max output power 6.5W
  • Onboard ATtiny 13A microcontroller for power management functionality
  • Configurable on / off switch for intelligent power management
  • Leaves all unused GPIO free for use with other add on boards
  • Fully assembled board
  • Mounting hardware and short ethernet patch cable included

Software and Samples

Pi PoE is completely plug and play – no software required in order for Pi PoE to provide power and Ethernet directly to your Raspberry Pi and it will work straight out of the box.

We also have plans to introduce some useful scripts and guides in order for you to make use of the configurable on board button as well as harness the unused power of the ATtiny on board and these will probably be introduced as stretch goals in due course.

    The Pi PoE Switch works great! I have a 7 inch Raspberry Pi touch screen with a RB2 overclocked and do not have any voltage issues.

  2. 4 out of 5

    Works, but because it representing itself as a class 0 device, some switches like the Netgear GS105PE cuts the power at 15W. In theory this should be enough, but I don’t get the Pi3 to run stable at such a switch. On a SG500 Switch the Pi 3 works as it should.

    Extremely useful hat, and works exactly as advertised. Mine’s powering a RasPBX installation on a RasPi 3 Model B at a remote site and has been utterly reliable.

    One word regarding the power switch: as far as I can tell, its state doesn’t pass through to the OS so it can’t be used for poweroff. This is a minor thing, but in a remote hands situation it may be useful to be able to direct someone to press the button to shut it down before unplugging it from PoE. Not going to lower the rating over this, but felt that it did need to be mentioned.

    • Thanks for the rating! FYI – you can pass the status of the power switch through to the OS using GPIO17 so you could write a little program to safe shutdown the Raspberry Pi on button press. The MCU on the board would then realise it was shutdown and then remove power. Additionally, you can hold down the power button for ~10 seconds to do a hard shutdown of the Raspberry Pi. Hope that helps!

    Great product!
    Excellent support!! Grazie Francesco.

    The only drawback of the board, by now, is that the male pins to stack another board on top are too short and bring the lower side of the upper board in contact with the shielding of the ethernet sockets.
    An Example. To stack an HiFi Berry or a Just Boom DAC requires soldering (or adapters that I did not find in the portfolio of Pi-Supply). Uncomfortable but not too bad: this is a motivation to make my own cabinet for the tree cards together!! A nice project for the summer!

    Any chance to convince Volumio or OSMC to implement that powering button function that Aaron and Casm are talking about?

    • Thanks very much for your review. The software for the button function is here – https://github.com/PiSupply/PiPoE – you could quite easily install this on Volumio or OSMC from the command line. Also, we will be listing the stacking headers soon too!

    Works as advertised. Also utilized the script to remove power on shutdown. Neat.

    I did receive two additional SMD resitors. What are they for?
