Modern corporate switches with a wide range of power settings (LLDP, overload / underload, power budget, eco settings, etc.) are more than ever prone to power delivery issues.
One reliable way to solve these power issues is to use an inline PoE injector between the powered devices (like VisualTarget enclosures) and the switch.
Here is one we recommend that is rack mountable with a large power budget:
