PowerSync Analyzer: A Family of PSE Testers
Configurable Instruments & Software for Testing PoE Power Sourcing Equipment. What do you need in a PSE Tester?
Test Suites & Options
Sifos Technologies offers the PowerSync® Analyzer in two form factors: The multi-slot PSA-3000 and the compact PSA-3402. Both PSE testers support the world’s most comprehensive and automated PSE Conformance Test Suites covering PSE’s that power up to 30W on 2-pairs and up to 90W on 4-pairs.
PSA-3000 / PSL-3000 Software
Included with every instrument in the PSA-3000 family are PSA Interactive (GUI) and PowerShell PSA (script automation) software. Whether running test suites, setting up PD emulations, analyzing specific PSE behaviors, or automating QA tests, PSA Software enables high productivity and rapid results.
PSE Conformance Test Suites
Whether testing single port injectors or 48 port PSE’s, Sifos offers the ultimate solution to assess PSE conformance to all applicable IEEE specifications. With the click of a button, fully automated testing and reporting delivers comprehensive and informative results including difficult-to-spot intermittent conformance behaviors.

PowerSync Programmable Loads (PSL-3424, PSL-3000)
The PSL-3424 is Sifos’ newest member to the PSA-3000 family. It uniquely offers capability to continuously load up to 24 4-Pair, 100 watt capable PSE ports simultaneously. It also introduces new testing features not previously available in the PSL-3000 Programmable Load.
The PSL-3000 is Sifos’ lowest cost-per-port solution for PSE loading and testing. It supports the 2-Pair Multi-Port Suite including the 2-Pair Multi-Port Test Suite for automated PSE system and power management analysis. It can provide continuous 99W loading on up to 12 802.3bt PSE ports simultaneously.
While most PSE ports are part of multi-port PSE, behaviors of such systems of PSE ports are beyond the scope of IEEE 802.3 specifications. The one-of-a-kind Multi-Port Suite enables flexible emulation of many PD’s and fully automated testing of PSE port administration and power management behaviors while powering up to 192 Type-1, Type-2, or Type-3 (Class 4) PD’s.
LLDP Emulation and Analysis
The optional LLDP Emulation feature allows a PSA-3000, PSL-3424L, or PSL-3000 test port to behave just like an 802.3at or 802.3bt PD that uses LLDP to convey its power demands. 802.3 PoE LLDP is a special variant of LLDP protocol that involves handshakes and protocol timing between a PSE and a PD.
Rapid PSE and Chained Data Test of 4-Pair and 2-Pair PSE's
The optional PSL-3424-QT feature license opens up two important productivity tools in the PSL-3424 platform. PSL-3424 Quick Test is a fully automated PSE functional test covering between 2 and 8 PSE ports in a test cycle with average test times on the order of 10 seconds per port tested. The Chained Data Test user interface allows rapid construction and verification of test setups used in “snaked data path” testing of PSE’s with user specified loads and optional LLDP power negotiation on each test port.
