We recently moved some equipment for a client. They had one Cisco 3750G-48PS-48 POE switch.  Everything has been moved over okay but my question is can I plug a non-POE device into the switch without damaging it.  Currently it has four additional port that we are using for sever equipment.  The rest go to IP phone then their computers

Hi,

You able to plug non-POE devices, because firsty when you plugging a device the switch and device negotiates need or not need POE!

If you want to disable the POE:

server-sw1-c2960(config)#int fastEthernet 0/2
server-sw1-c2960(config-if)#no power inline

Best regards,
Istvan

Hi techchoice,

When the switchport status changes to linkup, the 802.1ad (PoE) protocol state is auto-negotiated between the switch and the client device. This works the same for new standard PoE equipment and older non-standard Cisco proprietary PoE. Power will only be supplied if it is requested by the client device.

Also, remember that a maximum power of 15.4 watts is supplied through each switchport if you have a high-power switch. Older 48-port switches could not handle all 48 ports being connected at the same time with PoE on all ports. For this purpose a 7.7 W PoE level was developed. Make sure you aren't overloading your switches or your power supply will die very quickly/immediately.

Cheers!
