PSE Multi-Port Suite
The PSE Multi-Port Suite takes the PowerSync Analyzer and it’s proven PSE Conformance Test Capabilities into the realm of fully automated PSE System Power Management, Capacity Analysis, and Multi-Port Timing and Interaction testing covering up to 192 total PSE ports. This set of highly unique capabilities enable product developers and QA professionals to gain totally new insights into PoE system characteristics and behaviors.
At the heart of the PSE Multi-Port Suite is the ability to rapidly define and apply a wide range of Powered Device emulation attributes to a large field of PSE ports.
With PSA 4.0 software, the PSE Multi-Port Suite consists of two components:
Multi-Port Live 802.3at PD Emulation
Multi-Port Live 802.3at PD Emulation is available to all PSA-3000 and PSL-3000 platforms enabled for the PSE Multi-Port Suite. Using Live PD Emulation, users can rapidly model 802.3at Powered Devices (PD) with power loads up to and exceeding 30 watts per port and with full PoE LLDP power negotiation and power throttling emulations. During Live Emulation, each PSA / PSL-3000 test port takes on the characteristics and personality of an actual user-defined PD including PD classification, load power, cable loss power, LLDP capability, and Type-1 startup/throttle-back power. Emulated PD's on up to 192 PSE ports will behave just as would actual PD's when PSE's disconnect and restore power.
The PSE Multi-Port Test Suite
The PSE Multi-Port Test Suite is a fully automated group of tests supported on both PSA-3000 and PSA-1200 platforms including RackPack PSA's. It is also available with a reduced test coverage for the Programmable Load platforms.
The PSE Multi-Port Test Suite applies flexible Type-1 (802.3at) PD Emulations on up to 192 PSE test ports and assesses various PSE responses to those emulations. Testing is relevant to both 802.3at Type-1 and Type-2 PSE's since all 802.3at PSE's must respond to Type-1 PD's without dependence upon the new 802.3at LLDP protocols. Testing coverages include network power-up and power-down behaviors, total power capacity and power management decisions, powered port interactions, port interdependence traits, and durability or stress test analyses.
