Leviton Router & Switch and PoE

Adventurer

I'm adding a PoE switch to my setup to connect a number of IP Cameras.  I'd like to connect the PoE switch to the Leviton switch I already own.  Can the PoE switch damage the (non-PoE) Leviton switch?

    Leviton routers and Ethernet switches (non-PoE) are compatible with PoE devices (like a PoE switch).  PoE devices go through a handshaking step when they are first connected if one of the devices is not PoE enabled then no power is sent.  So there is no risk in connecting a Leviton router or Ethernet switch to a PoE switch.
