It's possible to connect a Ethernet Port of a PCD directly to Power over Ethernet (PoE)?
No, do not connect the RJ45 connector of a Ethernet Port of a PCD directly to Power over Ethernet (PoE).
The RJ45 Ethernet port of the PCD will be destroyed if connected directly to PoE (Mode B) because our Ethernet port (PCD7.F655 or the integrated Ethernet ports on the PCD1.M0/M2, PCD2.M5 and PCD3 and all Panels with Ethernet ports) are not designed for this purpose.
Possible solution to connect PCD to Ethernet networks where PoE is used:
Split the Ethernet network in a section where PoE is used and in to a section where PoE is not used and connect the PCD in to the section where PoE is not used.
The splitting of the network could be achieved with routers which do have on one side connectors with PoE and on the other side connectors without PoE.
Use a special Ethernet cable where the blue/blue-white and the brown/brown-white wires are disconnected.
(On PoE Mode B; the Pin 4 and Pin 7 of the RJ45 Ethernet connector are used to supply the power of PoE to the card,
On the PCD the Pin 1, 2, 3, 6 of the RJ45 Ethernet connector are uesd for the Ethernet communication)
