802.3af is limited to 15.4W, and 802.3at to 25.5W.  The limits for Class 
2 and 3 circuits are found in Chapter 9, Table 11 (A and B), of the NEC 
(Table 11(B) for DC circuits, and for a power source of 30 to 60 volts a 
Class 2 circuit can have, for a 44VDC supply power, up to 3.4A available 
(a max nameplate rating of 100VA).  For AC, Table 11(A) tells me that a 
120VAC circuit, to meet Class 2, must be current-limited to 5mA.

BICSI has a good set of slides on the NEC at
