PoE injector suggestions

Question

Posted

I've just recently purchased 3 Cisco 8-port switches (SG300-10P, article number: SRW2008P-K9-EU) that are going to replace Netgar GS108T switches in my gigabit network (all cabling is CAT6 shielded).
Since Cisco switches are PoE enabled and my firewall is not (Zywall USG-200) I will probably be adding a PoE injector between firewall and first switch (the switches are daisy chained: Firewall -> Switch #1 -> Switch #2 -> Switch #3).

Does anyone have a suggestion for a *good* PoE injector? Requirements are that it should be capable of powering 3 PoE switches that are daisy chained and allow full speed in a gigabit network (no speed impact) ?

Unfortunately, [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_over_Ethernet"]PoE[/url] doesn't work like that.

PoE is generally used to provide power from the switches rather than to them. PoE injectors would be used if you had PoE capable devices, but not a PoE switch.

Thank you for explanation. I was hoping I could use PoE to power switches and therefore skip power adapters.
