Power Over Ethernet Development and Test tools


SIFOS TECHNOLOGIES is focused on developing automated test & measurement solutions and delivering products that will: Increase the capability of test. Decrease the overall cost of test. Reduce test time, equipment, and fixture requirements.

3000 Chassis
PowerSync Analyzers, Series 3000. The one box solution.

Sifos Technologies provides a one-box solution to facilitate complete testing and analysis of Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) behaviors and overall compliance to the IEEE 802.3at specification. Each test port
inside a PowerSync Analyzer is an autonomous and fully isolated instrument offering a rich set of stimulus and measurement resources. Test ports are configured and controlled via a high level automation
interface, PowerShell PSA, and may also be accessed and managed from an intuitive graphical user interface, PSA Interactive.

Automated PSE Multi-Port Testing

PowerSync analyzers may also be optioned via a license key to run the one-of-akind PSE Multi-Port System Performance Suite. PSE Multi-Port evaluates systems of up to 192 PSE ports simultaneously to assess overall power capacities, multi-port event responses, PSE system decision making and power budgeting, and inter-port interactions and couplings.

802.3at LLDP Emulation and Analysis

The IEEE 802.3at specification describes a new generation of PSE’s and Powered Devices (PD’s) that communicate highly resolved power needs and power allocations using Ethernet layer 2 (LLDP) link protocols. PowerSync analyzers may be optioned via a license key to flexibly emulate PD’s and fully analyze the new power negotiation protocols between PSE’s and PD’s.
