The new IEEE 802.3bt Power-over-Ethernet standard will soon be released providing the highest power and most flexible configuration to date. To accommodate this new standard, Reach is designing its latest test unit, the RT-PoE5, to test Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) including Ethernet switches, Power over HDBaseT (POH), and LED lighting controllers.
Compliance vs. Functional Testing
Once in manufacturing, companies can assume their product passes full compliance to applicable standards (802.3af, 802.3at, 802.3bt, proprietary, or a mix of both) as tested in the design verification phase. It is neither cost-effective nor necessary to perform complete compliance testing in production. What is needed is a functional test that verifies the production unit’s ability to detect, classify, and control PoE power, checks that the power supply is working as it should, and ensures the connectors’ and magnetics’ ability to provide power and pass data.
