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 hard on all of the technical features so that you don't have to!
Raspberry Pi A+, B+, 2B, 3B, 3B+, 4B
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
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 onboard button as well as harness the unused power of the ATtiny on board and these will be introduced in due course.
Great hat, and works very well. My units (~40) are streaming some RTSP content via omxplayer.
I have removed the CN2 jumper so that the devices turn back on as soon as POE is available (really so they recover in their own accord after power cycle). Unfortunately removal of this Jumper appears to remove all functionality of the button? Any way around this? this would allow the end user a way to reboot the unit themselves if issues encoutered
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?
Works as advertised. Sadly: "Leaves all unused GPIO free for use with other add on boards", means this is not compatible with the Cluster HAT (I tried, measured all amp readings from each component and didn't go above 110mA on my setup so this was well within what the PoE Hat could provide power wise, but something is blocking communication from my rpi3 to the Cluster HAT. Works fine without the PoE HAT). I wish I had a manual stating all the Pi PoE Switch HAT's functions and what GPIO it uses so I could have planned better. I wanted to take away one star for that, but I can still use this for another project, just one without other hats.
You can see the pinout here - https://pinout.xyz/pinout/pi_poe_switch_hat
It uses 5v and GND pins. Everything else is optional (the LEDs and the power management pin).
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.
