IBoard Arduino ATMega328 Board With WIZnet POE Ethernet Port For Home Automation Robot Control

IBoard Arduino ATMega328 Board With WIZnet POE Ethernet Port For Home Automation Robot Control

Product Review (submitted on July 15, 2014):
I like this board for good combination of integrated Ethernet controller, small size and low price. I have used two of this boards in my DIY project already and mostly happy with it. But the biggest disadvantage of the board for me is a passive POE. It is NOT a standard compatible IEEE 802.3af/af POE and you can NOT use standard POE equipment (like a commercially available POE switches) to integrate this board in standard infrastructure. But you have to use a separate power supply and Passive POE injector to power the board. Or cut some wires on PCB by yourself and re-solder a different POE Ethernet connector and add POE PD power supply module. Not so easy and nice solution but a way to use the board in standard infrastructure. Or, stupid way, you can add POE splitter to your setup at point of use and do not use POE feature of board at all. I like to see a version of the board with a standard compatible IEEE 802.3af/af POE. This will increase a price for sure but a value also.
