Handheld PoE tester
26 June 2019, Test & Measurement

Ideal Networks has launched a new handheld tester that eliminates guesswork when installing, maintaining and troubleshooting PoE devices and data cabling. PoE Pro measures and reports PoE class, voltage/voltage drop, Watts and injector type, making it easy to see how much power is available.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is used to power VoIP phones, smart lighting systems, CCTV, digital signage, Wi-Fi access points, intercoms, sensors and much more. As PoE continues to grow, technicians need fast, accurate PoE validation to eliminate guesswork and get the job done faster.

“Previously technicians had to understand all the various standards, device power outputs and cable lengths to be sure a device will operate successfully. There was a lot of guesswork involved,” explains marketing director Tim Widdershoven. “With the PoE Pro, users can see whether 75 W of power is provided to a device that needs 75 W of power, such as a remote point-of-sale kiosk or a digital flight status sign at an airport. The pass-fail indication provides peace of mind the PoE device will work first time every time.”

If the PoE test fails at the device location, the technician can measure available power directly from the switch or injector to instantly determine whether the problem lies with the power supply or cabling. Easy-to-read test results are shown on the large backlit screen, up to a maximum of 90 W (PoE++).

The tester displays the voltage, PoE class from 0 to 8 and type, whether 802.3 af, at or bt, regardless of cable length, cable quality or other factors. There is no setup or complicated configuration; users can simply connect the PoE Pro to the cable or PoE port to display the maximum power available.

There is no need for separate testers as PoE Pro is both a data cable and PoE verifier with all the familiar cable testing features of the VDV II Pro from Ideal Networks. With comprehensive details on wire-map faults such as opens, shorts, crossovers and split pairs, PoE Pro can identify wiring errors instantly. It utilises time domain reflectometry (TDR) to accurately measure cable length and provide distance-to-fault information.

There is also Ethernet speed detection (10/100/1000 Mbps) and it quickly determines which media service is running over the cable, such as Ethernet, ISDN, PBX and PoE, resulting in faster fault diagnosis. Furthermore, users can utilise the port blink feature to identify the switch port or the in-built analog and digital tone generator with a compatible amplifier probe for quick cable tracing.
