Frequently Asked Questions

Where are Power over Ethernet Test products manufactured?

For quality and availability, we make Reach Technology PoE test products in the USA and staff all positions in the USA. Units are assembled in our state-of-the-art production facility in Mukilteo, WA. Our production team ensures manufacturing, quality, and customer support are of the highest standards. PCBs are assembled by an AS9100 D-certified local partner. Each unit goes through a series of tests throughout the build process. Units are fully tested before they ship.

Are ICT, FCT, and burn-in testing done?

Yes. Each unit is tested to verify each channel meets 10G-baseT insertion loss, return loss, and crosstalk limits connected with 100 meters of cable.

Where is the operating firmware developed and updated?

Power over Ethernet Tester firmware is developed and supported by our R&D Office in Oregon. Our in-house team of hardware and software engineers work with key Power Sourcing Equipment leaders to provide production line testing equipment to meet the latest standards. The Reach Technology R&D team has a proven track record of developing products to exacting customer requirements.
