• Local area network (LAN) tester with advanced power over Ethernet (PoE) checker
• Test pin-out status on structured wiring systems
• Determine the presence of live Ethernet cabling
• Requires one 9v PP3 battery (not included)What is the device used for?
This compact network testing kit with added power over Ethernet checker can determine which Ethernet sockets have power running through them. It can also be used as a pin-out tester, which allows you to test any homemade RJ45 and RJ11 cables to ensure the pins are correctly wired together.
What does the advanced PoE checker do?
The advanced PoE checker detects whether the cable you are testing is mid-span or end-span and detects which pin-outs are being used. It can also detect which standard is being used – either 802.3af or 802.3at.
How do I know it if is working?
On top on the checker are two LEDs, which are the end-span and mid-span indicators. If voltage is detected on pins 1, 2, 3 or 6, the end-span light will illuminate. If voltage is detected on pins 4, 5, 7 or 8, the mid-span light will illuminate.
