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.


This command is available on the ExtremeSwitching X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X620, 5320, 5420, 5520 series switches.—15,400 mW.

PoE+—30,000 mW.

PoE++ Type 3—60,000 mW.

PoE++ Type 4—90,000 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 3,000 to 30,000 mW and the default value is 30000 mW. For PoE++ Type 3, the range is 3,000 mW to 60,000 mW and the default value is 60,000 mW. For PoE++ Type 4, the range is 3,000 mW to 90,000 mW and the default value is 90,000 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If the measured power for a specified port exceeds the port‘s operator limit, the power is withdrawn from that port and the port moves into a fault state.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 3000-90000 mW for PoE 802.3bt port


The following command sets the limit for legacy PDs on ports 3–6 of slot 5 on a SummitStack 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, on ExtremeSwitching 5420 in ExtremeXOS 31.3, and 5320 in ExtremeXOS 31.6.

PoE++ (Type 3) was added in ExtremeXOS 22.2.

PoE++ (Type 4) for 90W ports on ExtremeSwitching X465 (24W, 48W, 24MU-24W models) was added in ExtremeXOS 30.2, on ExtremeSwitching 5520 (24W, 48W, 16MW-36W) in ExtremeXOS 31.1., and on ExtremeSwitching 5420 (see Platform Availability) in ExtremeXOS 31.3
