DTE power port isolation
Hello all techies, marketeers, and evangelists.
I have an implementation question:
I believe that it was agreed (in the Mar 2000 meeting) that each port
that will source DTE power (on the Switch or Hub), must provide the following isolation:
from any port (RJ-45 pins 1 to 8, or RJ-21) to frame ground, or logic ground:
+/- 2200 VDC, or 1500 VAC, for 60 seconds
from any one port (RJ-45 pins 1 to 8, or RJ-21) to any other port (RJ-45 pins 1 to 8, or RJ-21):
+/- 500 VDC, or 355 VAC, for 60 seconds
Furthermore, these isolation requirements apply whether or not either port under test has
power turned on or off. This implies isolated power on each port.
Is it correct to say that these are the requirements that the group has agreed to?
