A must-have companion for any IT pro. This pocket-size PoE Detector indicates the type of PoE on a cable using bright, easy-to-see LED display lights. Quickly detect and identify IEEE 802.3af/at, 24 volt passive, and even reverse polarity Mode B for Cambium or Canopy. Ergonomically designed, the POE-Detector fits comfortably between two fingers while allowing for rapid cable testing on the RJ45 input. And no need to worry about battery life, the PoE Detector is powered by PoE,!

Does this product display current?
The PoE Detector isn't used in-line with a powered device, so you cab't use it to test current. If you need this function, please use our PoE Tester.
What does a red blinking LED mean?
Red flashing indicates reverse polarity of 802.3af/802.3at.
What does a flashing green for 8-12 and then flash blue signify?
This is a very interesting reading as the detector is designed to show a solid green for passive (24volts) or solid blue for 802.3af/at passive. OR a flashing blue for active 802.3af/at. Please contact our technical support team so we can gather more information about your application. Thank you. 512-479-0317
Is there a way to tell 802.3af vs at with this device? ~Thanks!
Since 802.3af and 802.3at are both Active PoE with voltages ranges 44-57, no you cannot tell the difference between 802.3af and 802.3at with this device.
I expected this to have a consistent flash (more frequently) What causes this to flash is it the presence of voltage on certain pins?
The flashing indicates Active (Auto-negotiated) power on either mode A (1,2-,3,6+) or mode B (4,5+,7,8-).
How much current does this device draw?
This detector draws .05 watts.
What does flashing green mean?
Green flashing indicates an active negotiation.
