Offering comprehensive design support and available-to-ship inventory, Symmetry is committed to helping engineers accelerate time to market, reduce costs, and offer modern solutions for their IoT designs. Acquired by the Berkshire Hathaway company TTI, Inc. in 2017, Symmetry Electronics is headquartered in Los Angeles with international offices in Mexico, Canada, and China.

The Ag5510 is a PoE Ultra module that can deliver up to 60 Watts of output power. This is ideal for applications such as WiMAX access points, door access control, microwave backhaul, PTZ cameras and remote computer terminals. The input Signature complies with the IEEE802.3at specifications and it is also designed to meet the safety isolation requirements of IEEE802.3at 

Silvertels’ Ag5510 cost reduced 60W POE Ultra PD modules have been specifically designed for higher power POE applications. Capable of extracting up to 60W of power from a conventional twisted pair Category 5 Ethernet cable, these modules conform to the 802.3at Powerover-Ethernet (PoE) standard. This total solution includes 1.5kV isolation, PoE signature and integral DC to DC converter. 

The easy to integrate DIL package module provides a simple PoE solution using minimal extra low cost components. Ag5510 accepts power from all four pairs of the Ethernet cable. The integrated, high efficiency (up to ~87%), cost optimised DC/DC converter operates over a wide input voltage range providing a regulated output. In addition it provides built-in protection against overloads and short-circuits. The output voltage is nominally 12 or 24V, but is easily adjustable using a simple pull up/down resistor.

The Ag5510 provides signature and control circuitry to give full backwards PoE compatibility. A signature is needed by the Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) before it will provide power to the port.  

Ag5510 is an ideal cost effective solution for POE for any volume applications, e.g. PTZ IP cameras, door access systems, intelligent displays and sensors, requiring higher power than POE+. It is easy to design and integrate into the end product, with the added advantage of the complementary Ag6110 PSE to complete the design.


Key Features

  • Small footprint
  • Adjustable output voltage 
  • Overload, thermal and short-circuit protection
  • Minimal (low cost) external components required
  • EEE 802.3at compliant signature
  • 60 Watt POE PD Module


EvalAg5510 is intended for testing and evaluation of the Ag5510 POE Ultra PD module only. This evaluation board will work with PoE Ultra and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) that supplies power over the spare pair and or data pairs, e.g. Phihong POE60U. It is fitted with our new low cost and reduced footprint PoE Ultra 60W module the Ag5510. The Ag5510 has been designed to work in conjunction and be fully compatible with the new Ag6110 PSE modules, in applications where the full 60W of PD power is required.
