  • If I have "Simulate PoE Device" set to OFF, and I connect a PoE PSE and a PoE PD, should the PSE power up the PD? This is not happening with the unit I have.

    Great question! With an active, or auto-negotiating PSE, the simulate toggle needs to be turned 'ON'. If it is 'OFF' the negotiation bewteen the PSE and the tester will not take place.

  • The manual states that "The display shows volts, amps, and watts for 802.3af, 802.3at, passive PoE, and DC power supplies when the tester is connected to a powered device, however the product description states bt is also supported. Does Gen2 have the capability to report of power, voltage, current and pass-thru mode testing for bt in addition to at/af?

    Yes, our PoE Tester Gen2 will support the 4-pair testing capability for the new IEEE 802.3bt PoE standard which is up to 90 watts.  Our 1st Generation PoE Tester will support the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at passive PoE.

  • What’s the DC input voltage for the 2.1mm plug?

    The PoE Tester Gen2 will display 3.5 to 57 volts and 0 to 5 Amps on the DC.  It will display 12 to 57 volts with 0 to 1500 mA on the PoE (RJ45).

  • Will this support 802.3bt PSE readings up to 90 watts over 4 pair?

    This PoE Tester Gen2 does support 4-pair readings to display Volts, Amps, and Watts of the new 802.3bt standard.

  • I'm assuming the tester runs off the POE voltage, if there's no battery, how would it handle a break in a wire? For example, how can I know "wires 1-3 good, wire 4 bad, wire 5-8 good"?

    Correct, this tester is powered through PoE on the RJ45 or from a direct power supply using the DC barrel connector. This tester is designed to measure voltage, amperage, and wattage and does not diagnose line readings. If there is a break in a wire used in line, the tester will not display a reading.
