Hobbes Announces PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester

Hobbes Group, the global leader in professional network equipment today announced PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester, a battery-free PoE test tool for PoE system installation and troubleshooting.

Part of the core technology of PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester comes from PoE Checker/PoE Tester, which can perform inline test of PoE system to receive real-time voltage, current and power draw.

PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester can support IEEE802.3AF, IEEE802.3AT, UPoE, Hi-PoE and IEEE802.3BT standards. It is the only PoE tester on the market that is compatible with all PoE type and standard.

The three major applications:

Detect unknown or suspected PoE switches or injectors

PoE equipment manufacturers is a highly competitive market with some manufacturers offering PoE switches and injectors. However, some switches and injectors do not perform “handshake” connection that causes compatibility problems with Powered Devices (PD) such as IP Cameras. Having a compatibility issue can cause damages to Power Devices resulting in unnecessary expenditure to consumers. Power Sourcing Equipments (PSE) that does not perform “handshake” may cause the following problems:

  • PSE device generating a transient pulse that is over the voltage range of a PD device maximum capacity can cause damage to the PD device.
  • Powered pairs of PSE not attaining the required power of PD device will cause PD to malfunction and/or nonoperational.

Through the LED light of the PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester, you can quickly determine whether the PoE switches or injectors will transmit signal (via handshake) before supplying power. You can avoid damages to PD by identifying the power supplied by PoE switches and injectors.

Quick troubleshooting

The PoE system is an integrated system that is more prone to having compatibility problems than a single device. The PoEz Power Device Simulator (PDS) can simulate as a PD, so you can quickly identify the device that may cause problems.

Long term monitoring voltage, current, and power draw

Because of most PoE devices such as PoE switches, PoE injectors and IP cameras operate continuously for 24 hours, the PoEz Power Over Ethernet Detector/PoE Tester can monitor the real-time voltage, current and power stability to ensure the safety of electricity flowing to PD.
