Platinum Tools Launches Pocket-Sized PoE Detector

The new Platinum Tools Power over Ethernet (PoE) detector can differentiate between end-span PoE power and mid-span voltage.

NEWBURY PARK, Calif. — Platinum Tools announces the launch of its pocket-sized PoE detector (p/n TPS100C).

“Our new pocket-size PoE Detector detects PoE end/mid-span voltages on network cables,” explains Jason Chesla, Platinum Tools marketing manager. “This is just another great test tool from Platinum every tech should have in their bag.”

Plug cables directly into the built-in RJ45 jack or use the included patch cord, and the detector’s LED indicators instantly show “GO/NO-GO” detection on PoE networks.

The PoE detector also differentiates between end-span PoE power, which is supplied from PoE switches, router and mid-span voltage from injectors.

End-span detection indicates voltages are found on pairs 1/2, 3/6; mid-span detection indicates voltages found on pairs 4/5, 7/8. The PoE Detector is also 802.3af or 802.3at compatible.
