No Batteries Required for TPS200C
“Powered by the PoE circuit, the TPS200C requires no batteries and can be used inline with an actual PoE device to measure current flow, or by itself in Powered Device (PD) Simulation mode to determine the maximum power available from the PoE power source,” explained Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager.
No Data Interruption on Active Cables
The TPS200C tests up to 4-pair PoE (IEEE 802.3bt Type 3), even on active data cables without interrupting data flow. It offers both automatic mode and polarity detection.
The tester features an easy-to-read, bright, scrolling OLED display and dual RJ45 ports for testing PoE and dual 2.1×5.5mm DC jacks for testing DC power supplies.
