Designed for Production Testing

The Reach PoE Test Family (PoE5, PoE4/10G, and PoE3) is designed for economical and functional production testing. To keep costs low, the LLDP protocol (see 802.3at standard) is not supported since if the unit under test passes basic functional tests, LLDP will work as designed.

1 For networked control, use a TCP/IP Ethernet to Serial RS232 Converter. A serial interface is used so production can swap out damaged testers quickly without any IP setup, and there cannot be inherent network interface issues inside the tester.

2 Data is internally looped port 1-2, 3-4, etc. to allow testing at 10Gbps. This assumes the UUT (Unit Under Test) can use VLAN or internal packet generation for data packet error testing.
