PoE+ HAT brings greater performance to multiple Raspberry Pi models
The Raspberry Pi ecosystem has plenty of HATs at its disposal, as we have previously reported. However, now the Foundation behind the popular single-board computer (SBC) has released the PoE+ HAT, an add-in board that does exactly what it says on the tin (Power over Ethernet).
According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the PoE+ HAT supports 802.at PoE+, giving a Raspberry Pi board up to 25.5 W of power. For reference, the HAT supports the 802.3 af standard too, should you have an older Raspberry Pi.
The PoE+ HAT also included an active fan to keep your SBC cool, should you need it. The Pi Foundation states that the PoE+ HAT is compatible with the Pi 3B+ and 4B; incidentally, it has a 37-57 V DC input voltage. The PoE+ HAT is orderable now globally. The Pi Foundation has set the HAT's price at £18 in the UK, US$20 in the US and €19.95 in the Eurozone. The Pi Foundation does not sell the PoE+ HAT directly, though. All retailer details and links can be found on the Pi Foundation's product page.
