The C5c only takes passive PoE, so whatever you want to use it needs to be that.

I think most of the Mikrotik Switches are PoE af, so that wouldn’t work. But if you are trying to use a Mikrotik Passive PoE adapter it should be fine.

There are plenty of Passive PoE solutions out there. You just have to make sure what you’re purchasing or using is Passive and not Active (802.3at or 802.3af). If you use an Active PoE source on the C5c or C5x, you will possibly damage the radio. It at least will never power up.

Here is an example of one that will work: https://www.balticnetworks.com/mikrotik-low-cost-gigabit-passive-poe-injector.html
