AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As many manufacturers including Apple, Google, and Samsung standardize on USB Type-C (USB-C) with the new Power Delivery (PD) protocol, CoolGear and PoE Texas have joined forces to combine USB-C with PD and Power Over Ethernet. In early 2018, PoE Texas will launch the POE-USBC-Kit and the AT-USBC-Kit with everything you'll need to use USB-C PD over Ethernet.
What is USB Type-C Power Delivery? With 10 times the power capacity of earlier USB protocols, USB-C powers modern electronics with the capacity to charge a phone in 15 minutes or simultaneously charge a laptop and power an external monitor. Unfortunately, finding a USB-C charger compatible with a variety of devices has proven consistently challenging for consumers. CoolGear developed the CG-DCPD21W, a sleek, cost-effective USB-C PD device with the broadest possible compatibility.
Why Power over Ethernet? PoE significantly lowers the cost of adopting USB-C by eliminating the need for new electrical infrastructure. Unlike USB-C, which can transmit power less than ten feet (three meters) and is uncommon in buildings and homes, Ethernet can transmit power and data 328 feet (100 meters) and is nearly ubiquitous in modern construction.
By leveraging their experience with PoE standards, PoE Texas has tackled the question of power for USB-C PD:
AT-USBC-Kit - a custom 802.3af/PoE+ splitter that supports 25 watts PoE+ (both active and passive).
24 Volt Passive - For cost conscious users who control both the Power Supplying Equipment (PSE) and the Powered Device (PD), the POE-USBC-Kit uses the 24 volt PoE standard at up to 25 watts.
uPoE (IEEE 802.3bt) - With this new standard coming in 2018, PoE Texas has developed 60 watt PoE PSE's with upcoming designs for 60 watt PoE splitters to support full capacity USB-C PD.
