The PoE3 series of testers are based on an older design and some components are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.

Effective immediately, we are discontinuing the production of PoE3 testers as outlined in the Part Change Notification (PCN-000026). We will continue to accept Last Time Buy orders until October 31, 2020. Contact sales to place a last time buy order. Note: Lead time on units is currently 16 weeks.

We recommend customers use the PoE5 and PoE4N/10G testers which support 10G speeds (speeds up to 10GBASE-T) and 802.3af, at, and bt specifications. If you are using the loopback or programmable detect current features, they are not available in our PoE5 and PoE4/10G units. Please contact us to discuss your options.
