Check your RJ-45 outlet for power using the Microsemi PoE Tester
The Power over Ethernet (PoE) Tester, connected to an RJ-45 outlet, tests the cabling infrastructure for the presence of power, eitherIEEE802.3af or IEEE802.3 at standard compliant. The PoE Tester identifies the existence and type of Power Sourcing Equipment (either Endspan or Midspan) in your network.
Tests RJ-45 outlet for Power over Ethernet existence
Works over Cat5 or better cable
IEEE 802.3af midspans and switches
Cisco pre-standard in-line switches
High Power midspans
Power over 2 pairs or 4 pairs
Compact design specifically tailored for system integrators and installers
Plug and play for ease of use
A PoE system comprises a PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) and a PD (Powered Device).
The PSE may either be an Endspan (i.e. a layer 2 Ethernet Switch with integrated PoE) or a Midspan, while the PD is a PoE-enabled terminal, such as IP phone, Wireless LAN access point and Network Security Camera.
The PoE tester will check your RJ-45 outlet for power and identify its source, Midspan or Endspan, i.e.IEEE 802.3af, 802.3at or UPoE/EEPoE standard compliant Midspans/Switches.
How to use the PoE Tester:
Connect a standard category 5 or better cable with RJ-45 connectors to the PoE tester and the RJ-45 outlet (See diagram).
Check the LED indicators on the front panel for power and source (PoE switch,Midspan or High Power Midspan).
The lit-pattern of LEDs will identify amount of power, and whether it is over 2 or 4 pairs.
