I am creating a foot print for this PoE magjack and was wondering how to correctly interpret the symbols for 3 and 4 on page 5. From the schematic, these pins get wired but I am confused as to why they are not holes. Thanks

    \$\begingroup\$ Look at the 'schematic' diagram on page 1 - there are no pins 3 & 4. \$\endgroup\$ – brhans Jul 17 at 18:59

The schematic for the connector has RJ45 pins (1-8) on the right, and footprint pins (1-2, 5-15) are on the left.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Okay. Second question, Will I have to wire the capacitors and resistors or are these integrated in the connector itself? \$\endgroup\$ – circuit_noob533 Jul 17 at 19:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ @circuit_noob533 They are inside the connector. You will need to wire up all connections on the outside of the "footprint", but that's pretty much it. \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Jul 17 at 19:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. I notice that there are two Vc pairs from the connector. Does this mean I effectively have two power lines to work with? Or do these need to be joined through a junction to create one +/- pair. Side note: My application requires me to power Rpi0 and a VoIP phone. \$\endgroup\$ – circuit_noob533 Jul 17 at 20:10
  • \$\begingroup\$ @circuit_noob533 Applications that I've seen take the DC lines and pass them into a 4-input bridge rectifier before adding on the PoE negotiating circuits and isolated DC-DC converter \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Jul 17 at 20:51

Pins 3 & 4 are not actual pins, they are placeholders, skipping these pins makes it easier to define the mechanical dimensions.
