The Redpark USB-C Gigabit + PoE Adapter is the first ethernet + PoE adapter designed specifically for USB-C iPads. The adapter connects USB-C iPads to ethernet and uses power over ethernet (PoE+) to charge the iPad. This enables an iPad to receive both data and power over a single Ethernet cable when connected to a PoE+ enabled switch or a PoE+ injector.
When connected to an iPad the adapter is instantly recognized as a network connection. The ethernet connection can be configured using the Settings app on the iPad.
The adapter physically connects to the iPad using a USB-C to USB-C cable (sold separately). It supports 10/100/1000 networking and provides bandwidth up to 900Mbps.
Using the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Once the Adapter is connected to an iPad or iPhone, “Ethernet” will appear in the Settings app in between WiFi and Bluetooth. Both DHCP and Static IP addresses are supported.
The network connection provided by the Adapter is available to be used by any iOS app. Please note that the FaceTime, Messages and Wi-Fi Calling apps do not currently support ethernet.
The USB-C Gigabit + PoE Adapter is a specialty form of USB 3 to Ethernet Adapter. It provides bandwidth up to 900 Mbps if a USB-IF certified USB 3 USB-C cable is being used to connect the C6-NETPOE to the iPad. When used with a USB 2 USB-C cable the bandwidth will be roughly 350 Mbps.
Not currently. Perhaps a future version of iOS will support this.
Yes. Each Adapter is programmed with a unique MAC address during the manufacturing process.
The USB-C Gigabit + PoE Adapter requires a PoE+ switch or the PoE+ injector to supply 30W.
The C6-NETPOE provides 3A 5V as required in Apple specifications for any USB-C iPad or iPhone.
No. The USB-C Gigabit + PoE Adapter is not able to draw power from the iPad. It must receive power from PoE.
You must use an PoE+ switch or PoE+ injector that provides 48V and 30W of power. The adapter will not work with injectors that supply 24V.
Use Cat5e, Cat 6 or Cat 6A cables. If the distance between the Adapter and the PoE power source is 100 ft or more, we recommend Cat 6A cables.
Yes. There is a power LED as well as LEDs to display network link status and network activity.
iOS 16.5.x or later.
The Adapter is 3.50″ x 2.35″ x .95″
No. This adapter supports USB-C iPads only.
Android and/or surface tablets may or may not work with the C6-NETPOE adapter. Redpark has focused on testing the C6-NETPOE with USB-C iPads and iPhones. We are not able to warrant that the C6-NETPOE works with other types of tablets.
