How to configure PoE power-on and power-off management on S series switches

4

A switch supports automatic and manual power-on and power-off modes.
Run the poe power-management { auto | manual } slot slot-id command (the slot slot-id parameter is optional for fixed switches) to configure the PoE power management mode. The auto parameter indicates the automatic power management mode, and the manual parameter indicates the manual power management mode.
By default, a switch uses the automatic power management mode. You cannot configure the power management mode on the PoE switch S5720-16X-PWH-LI-AC.


In automatic mode, run the poe priority { critical | high | low } command in the interface view to set the power supply priority of a PoE interface. The priorities in descending order are critical, high, and low. By default, the power supply priority of an interface is low. When the available power is insufficient, the device provides power first for the PDs connected to interfaces with higher power supply priorities.
In manual mode, run the poe { power-off | power-on } interface interface-type interface-number command in the system view to manually power on or power off the PD connected to an interface. The power-off parameter indicates that the PD connected to an interface is powered off, and the power-on parameter indicates that the PD connected to an interface is powered on.

PoE power module of an S series switch
Configuration and power of PoE power modules on S series switches are as follows: The fixed series switches that have PWR or PWH in their names support PoE. 1. You can use Hardware Query Tool to query the configuration and power of PoE power modules on S series switches. 2. Among modular switches (S7700, S9700, S9300, and S12700), only the S7700 and S9300 support the PoE function. If a switch is running V200R006 or a later version, it allows 800 W AC, 2200 W AC, and 2200 W DC power modules in PoE power slots. If the input voltage is 220 V AC, the PoE power is 800 W or 2200 W. If the input voltage is 110 V AC, the PoE power is 400 W or 1100 W (the S7712 and S9312 do not support 110 V AC). Only ES0D0G48VA00 cards of the S7700 and LE0DG48VEA00 cards of the S9300 support the PoE function. Dual power modules with the same power can be installed to provide power for PDs in load balancing mode. The total power is the sum of two power modules. The number of PoE interfaces supported by a switch is the result of dividing the available PoE power by 15.4 W (802.3af), 30 W (802.3at), or 60 W (802.3bt). Generally, a 250 W power module supports eight interfaces of 15.4 W. A 500 W power module supports 24 interfaces of 15.4 W and 12 interfaces of 30 W. For details, see Tell You About PoE.

Precautions before powering off S series switches
The precautions before powering off an S series switch (except the S1700 switch) include: 1. Save and back up configurations. 2. Switch off the switch or power modules before switching off the external power supply system.

PoE power supply priority on an S series switch with insufficient power
For an S series with insufficient power, if the PoE power supply priority is not set, the switch first provides power for a device connected to an interface with a smaller interface number.
