What’s Inside

PARTS LIST: GBT-NUC

  • 1 X Gen 7 Form Factor NUC Lid
  • 1 X Gen 8 & 10 Form Factor NUC Lid
  • 1 X IEEE 802.3bt/uPoE Adapter
  • 1 X Ethernet Patch Cable
  • 1 X Power Patch Cable

You have everything you need to fit most models of the NUC.

 

GENERAL INSTALLATION

 

Besides the GBT-NUC kit, you will need the right kind of PoE installed. NUC’s can draw a fair amount of power, so you really need an IEEE802.3bt or uPoE switch or injector.  For example, you can use our BT-1-55v60w-IN, which is our indoor IEEE 802.3bt dual signature injector you can find on yourfavorite sales channel.  This injector allows you to add IEEE 802.3bt power to any PoE or non-PoE switch.


Otherwise, yes, you can use your Cisco uPoE devices, and we have notes in the configuration section on how to configure the port for the POE NUC lid. 

Put it together:

The installation is simple and fast to accomplish. The hardest step is making sure you have the right lid model installed on your adapter.  Let me show you how it’s done. 


The form factor information is in the part number.  Flip it over and check outthe part number.  Find the first “i” then the number before that is the model number you need for the lid.  In this case, it is the “8”.  Simply check whether the underside lid is labeled with the same number, “7” or “8”.  If you have the wrong lid on, no problem!  Simply unscrew the lid and screw on the correct lid.

  • The form factor information is in the part number.  Flip it over and check outthe part number.  Find the first “i” then the number before that is the model number you need for the lid.  In this case, it is the “8”.  Simply check whether the underside lid is labeled with the same number, “7” or “8”.  If you have the wrong lid on, no problem!  Simply unscrew the lid and screw on the correct lid.

  • Now, remove the lid from your NUC. Look for these little openings, and gently start pulling up.

  • Now, the next thing to consider are these funny rubber pads.  These are your thermal pads.  They help manage the heat from the NUC lid.  Simply place these in these configurations depending which NUC lid model you have.

  • Then, gently place the lid on your NUC.  Once it’s in place, a little pressure will clip the lid on.

 

  • Finally, use the included patch cable to connect the LAN port to the ethernet port of your NUC and the DC power cable to the DC port of the NUC.  And you’re ready to connect the power to the PoE port.  Your NUC should start to boot right away.

CONFIGURATION

Configuring Your GBT-Nuc

You’re not required to do any configuration with IEEE 802.3bt switches and injectors. The PoE NUC lid will work right away.   Cisco uPoE switches do require some configuration on the switch to enable the right PoE for the PoE NUC Lid.

 

However, if you’re using Windows, there’s a best practice we’ve found I like to do.  Simply type “Power & Sleep settings” in the search bar at the bottom.  Select “Additional Power Settings”.  “ChangePower Settings”.  Choose the “Balanced” settings to keep the NUC from spiking power.
