How to power a BGW320-505 off of PoE++

I would like to power my new BGW320-505 off of POE++ (802.3bt).  I do not have backed up power in the garage at the demarc where the fiber terminates into the BGW320-505 but I do have it on the Ethernet switch inside.  POE++ should provide adequate power, so I believe the primary issue is adapting 12v power from the 802.3bt PoE splitter to the DC power connector on the BGW320-505.

I was able to make this configuration work.  I purchased a

IPOE-173S Industrial Single-Port 10/100/1000Mbps 802.3bt PoE++ Splitter and another BGW320-505 power supply.  I cut off the power cable from the power supply and connected it to the splitter via the convenient screw terminal blocks on the splitter.  I used an AC-powered PoE++ injector at the connection to the router, where I have backed-up power.

That's a lot of power (45 Watts is what the BGW320 brick provides).  That plug appears designed to ensure you don't do anything other than use the brick provided.  I found a supplier for a UPS with cable, but the cable part number didn't check out (it was a 9 pin DIN and the other end would have been weird anyway).

I did the same thing with an ONT, but the ONT doesn't draw as much power as the BGW320.  Glad you were able to make it work.
