configure inline-power operator-limit ports

configure inline-power operator-limit milliwatts ports [all |port_list]


Sets the power limit allowed for PDs connected to the specified ports.

Syntax Description

milliwatts An integer specifying the maximum allowed power in milliwatts.
port_list Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.


PoE—15400 mW.

PoE+—30000 mW.

Usage Guidelines

This command sets the power limit that a PD can draw on the specified ports. For PoE, the range is 3000 to 16800mW and the default value is 15400 mW. For PoE+, the range is 3000 to 30000 mW and the default value is 30000 mW.

If the measured power for a specified port exceeds the port‘s operator limit, the power is withdrawn from that port and the port moves into a fault state.

If you try to set an operator-limit outside the accepted range, the system returns the following error message:

Error: Invalid operator-limit value. Must be in the range of 3000-16800 mW


The following command sets the limit for legacy PDs on ports 3 – 6 of slot 5 on a modular switch to 10000 mW:

configure inline-power operator-limit 10000 ports 5:3-5:6


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.

PoE+ was added in ExtremeXOS 12.5.

Platform Availability

This command is available on the PoE devices listed in Extreme Networks PoE Devices.
