The CPE100 is small form factor device that provides the ability to power multiple Chainable Powered Ethernet (CPE) devices from a single Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch or router port. The CPE100 is fully 802.3af/at compliant, and can be configured to classify as a PoE class 1, 2, 3 or 4 device. The CPE100 enables the utilization of existing PoE infrastructure to power multiple devices improving infrastructure efficiency and reducing installation costs.

The CPE100 was designed with mounting flexibility in mind. The enclosure includes a mounting ear on each side of the device.
Installation of the CPE100 in excessively hot or damp environments should be avoided.
Configure the desired PoE classification using the switch located on the front of the CPE100. The classification options and their maximum power are as follows from left to right:
|CLASS||Max DWETH101 Supported||Maximum Power|
Classification only occurs on connection to Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE). To change classification disconnect power from the CPE100, move the configuration switch to the desired position, and reclassify by connecting to the PSE.
To ensure proper operation, it is recommended that the expected power draw from a port is no more than 80% of the total power provisioned for a classification level. As an example, the CPE100 should be configured for Class 3 when chaining 3 CPE devices each with an expected power draw of 3.0W, 9.0W total.
It is beneficial to configure the CPE100 to classify at the lowest class necessary for the expected power. The lowest class setting ensures that the PSE will not allocate more power than necessary for the port allowing it to reserve power for devices attached to other ports.
The CPE100 is designed to enable a chain of CPE devices to be powered from a single PoE port. To setup a chain of devices, connect the left Ethernet jack labeled ‘PoE In’ of the CPE100 to a PoE compliant PSE. The right port labeled ‘OUTPUT’ of the CPE100 connects to the first device in a chain of CPE devices. This output should only be plugged into CPE compliant devices such as the Ciholas DWETH101.
The following diagram demonstrates a typical configuration chaining multiple DWETH101 units.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Before working or installing electrical equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents
The CPE100 is designed for use with equipment specified in the CPE100 User Manual only. Using the power injector with other Ethernet-ready devices can damage the equipment.
Do not operate any wireless network devices near unshielded blasting caps or in an explosive environment unless the devices have been modified to be especially qualified for such use.
