PSE Conformance Test Suite

New Features of the Second Generation (version 4.0.xx) PSE Conformance Test Suite:

  • Complete 802.3at Automated Compliance Testing
  • Full Support of LLDP-Capable PSE's
  • Complete Emulation Flexibilty for all PD Classes 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4
  • Diagnostic Waveform Trace Retention and Display of ALL Waveforms Captured per Test

The PSE Conformance Test Suite is a fully automated, highly adaptive group of tests designed to assess PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) compliance to the 802.3at specification.  Sifos provides industry leading coverage and diagnostic capabilities based upon the core resources of each PowerSync®  Analyzer test port coupled with the high level processing power of PowerShell PSA.

With the new IEEE 802.3at standard, PSE Conformance Testing has evolved from a single case (15.4 watt PSE's) model into a more complex model with several dimensions:

  • Type-1 (15.4 watt) PSE's serving Type-1 PD's
  • Type-2 (30 watt) PSE's serving Type-1 PD's
  • Type-2 (30 watt) PSE's serving Type-2 PD's with Classification Grants
  • Type-2 (30 watt) PSE's serving Type-2 PD's with LLDP Grants

PSA Software Release 4.0 offers the world's most complete and automated PSE Conformance Test Suite (version 4.0.xx) to assess 802.3at specification compliance in each of these four cases.  This second generation test suite is available to all PowerSync Analyzers configured with PSA-3102 (PSA-3000) test blades.  The test suite offers greater than 95% coverage of 802.3at PIC's items for compliant PSE's.

PSA Software Release 3.5 continues to offer a first generation, fully automated PSE Conformance Test Suite (version 3.5.xx) to assess partial 802.3at specification compliance primarily for Type-1 PSE's and Type-2 PSE's serving Type-1 PD's.   This test suite remains available and supported for PSA-1200 (PSEAF test blades).

PSE Conformance Test Standard Reporting

PSE Conformance Tests automatically sequence to a Spreadsheet Report that automatically scales to the number of tested ports and parameters.  The standard report delivers parameter statistics across tested PSE ports and colorfully annuciates all limit failures.
