Tester and Detector V2.5


Rapid, Portable PoE Identification and Inline Voltage/Current Testing for PoE Devices for Troubleshooting and Monitoring

Get two of our best-selling PoE tools for one low price. Keep the PoE Tester in your toolbox for when you need to check voltage, current, and power consumption on your Ethernet runs. The PoE Detector fits easily on your keychain and quickly lets you know if PoE is present, and if so, what type of PoE.

About the PoE Tester

The PoE-Tester-Gen2.5 from PoE Texas belongs in every tool kit. Test PoE cameras, VOIP phones, and WiFi installations. When placed in-line between your PoE injector or switch and the powered device, the improved LED display will show the voltage available, current, and power consumption.
