Compare PoE Test Equipment

Reach Technology offers two PoE test equipment models. Both units come with 24 emulated PD ports, have a 1U rackmount chassis, use a universal power supply (90-240VAC), and offer a serial port control.Compare the models below.

1 For networked control, use a TCP/IP Ethernet to Serial RS-232 Converter. A serial interface is used so production can swap out damaged testers quickly without any IP setup, and there cannot be inherent network interface issues inside the tester.

2 Data is internally looped port 1-2, 3-4, etc. to allow testing at 10Gbps. This assumes the UUT (Unit Under Test) can use VLAN or internal packet generation for data packet error testing.

Designed for Production Testing

The Reach Technology PoE Test Family (PoE5 and PoE4/10G) is designed for economical and functional production testing. To keep costs low, the LLDP protocol (see 802.3at standard) is not supported since if the unit under test passes basic functional tests, LLDP will work as designed.
