    Procurve PoE

    I have a couple of 2600-8PWRs and am possibly looking to acquire another small PoE switch.

    I noticed the power consumption on the 2520-8 is 85W. In absence of a UK one, the US datasheet says the 2520-8 max PoE output is 67W. The spec says the switch has 8 PoE ports, but wouldn't that equal (8*15.4) 123.2W output? What am I missing?

    It's likely that the switch can't provide full PoE power to all ports unless you use another power supply/power shelf. If you're only powering something like a VoIP phone you'll probably find you need less than the max that 802.3af provides
