The new PoE Pro eliminates guesswork when installing, maintaining and troubleshooting networks where PoE is deployed.
Previously technicians had to understand all the various standards, device power outputs and cable lengths to be sure a device will operate successfully.
The PoE Pro identifies the Class of the PoE source and power available to a PoE device regardless of cable length, cable quality or other factors.
No more trial and error Accurately measure the maximum power available

Do you have enough power at the device location?
PoE Pro displays the maximum power available at the device location including the maximum watts, Class (0-8), Voltage, Type (af/at/bt) and 2/4 pair operation.
Some switches or injectors may provide power that exceeds their IEEE Class rating. The PoE Pro can test this ability with its extended power test. Simply press the network button for 3 seconds and the PoE PRO will increase power demand up to a maximum of 90 watts.
What type of Power Sourcing Equipment is in use?
Reduce troubleshooting time by identifying the type of PoE equipment in use. End-point PoE switches are in the equipment room vs mid-span injectors can be anywhere along the cable.
This is achieved by displaying which twisted pairs have power. Power on pairs 1/2, 3/6 indicates a PoE switch and power on pairs 4/5, 7/8 indicates a mid-span injector.
Does the PoE switch provide enough power?
Test and verify PoE switches and injectors by connecting directly to them and displaying the maximum power, Type (af/at/bt), Class (0-8) and Voltage.
Cable Verification and Troubleshooting
Accurate fault finding that saves time and money
The PoE Pro utilises Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) to accurately measure cable length and provide distance to fault information. This speeds up fault finding as well as minimising disruption and potential damage to fixtures and fixings.
With comprehensive details on faults such as opens, shorts, crossovers and split pairs, PoE Pro identifies wiring errors instantly.
No need for separate testers
The integrated RJ11/RJ12 (voice), RJ45 (data) and F-Type (video) connectors allow faster testing of most types of low-voltage cables by eliminating the need for separate testers.
Validate voice and data services faster
PoE Pro quickly determines which media service is running over the cable, such as Ethernet, ISDN, PBX and PoE resulting in faster fault diagnosis.
Quickly determine network speed
Troubleshooting active Ethernet networks is also made easier with in-built network detection that displays the speed (10/100/1000) and duplex (Half/Full) status of a network port.
Voltage protection for your tester
The PoE Pro will detect high voltages and provide a visible and audible warning to prevent damage to the tester.
Cable tracing to save time
The analogue / digital tone generator with multiple tones can be used with most analogue and digital cable tracing probes which is essential for finding faulty or mis-labelled cabling.
The port blink function will identify the switch port to which a cable is connected.
