5V 1.5A Output PoE Module - Works with Raspberry Pi 3 B+ or Pi 4
Product Images and Video
Power over Ethernet (PoE) can make your project wiring a breeze - instead of needing a wire for power and data, you can use one Ethernet cable for both! All you need is this handy PoE module, and access to the center-taps on your Ethernet-capable board. Attach the four input wires, and get regulated 5V 1.5A on the other side. Amazing!
This module works well with the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ or Pi 4, which has the 4 wires on a header. As you can see in our photos, you just need some female-female jumper wires to get the Ethernet wires to the module, and then two wires to bring the 5V back to the header. Note that even though a 2.5A power supply is recommended for a Pi 3B+ / 4, that's only required if you attach a bunch of accessories (such as a 7" display!) 1.5A will cover a wide range of usages, as the current draw is around 0.7A max without extras.
If you don't have access to those pins, but can power your board or computer with a micro USB cable, check out our 5V microUSB PoE Splitter. It's bigger and more expensive but really easy to use Great for older Raspberry Pi's without the PoE headers, Feathers, etc)
