PoE used to be simple. It has become complex. New standards, like IEEE 802.3bt, are being ratified to ensure more power can be delivered over more pairs. However as Powered Devices (like cameras and wireless APs) ask the Power Source Equipment for power, the switch can say NO.
In only a few seconds the new Fluke Networks MicroScanner POE provides information to solve those tough PoE problems. It will tell a Technician if the cable good or bad and the Network Engineer if the switch port is configured properly or not. If both are good a customer will know that the Powered Device needs to be exchanged.
The Microscanner™ PoE cuts through the confusion of your PoE installation by providing swift and simple PoE verification. The tester displays the available PoE class (0-8) from 802.3at, .3af and .3bt devices, and voltage from passive PoE sources. Available services (up to 10G), cable length, wiremap, cable ID, Intellitone toning, and distance to fault are also provided.
