PSA 5.1.02 Highlights
Initial Support for 4-Pair PSE Conformance Test Suite
Starting with the PSA 5.1.02 release, users may be enabled to run the evolving 4-Pair (802.3bt) PSE Conformance Test Suite. While the test suite is not fully completed yet, it includes very comprehensive coverage of PSE specification performance related to PD detection, connection check, classification, and power-up. Presently 14 tests are available that produce 165 test parameters.
The 4-Pair PSE Conformance Test Suite is a new feature option that must be licensed in the PSA-3000 (or PSA-3402) instrument and then enabled with a specific Product Key when PSA 5.1.02 software is installed. Contact Sifos for further information.2
