4-Pair 802.3bt PSE Conformance Test Suite Officially Released!
PSA version 5.2.00 software for the PowerSync Analyzer, PhyView Analyzer, and PowerSync Programmable Load is now available for download. This release marks the end of the 4-Pair PSE Conformance Test Suite Beta Site program and thus makes the fully automated 4-Pair Test Suite generally available to all Sifos customers. The 4-Pair Test Suite has progressed through exhaustive QA including stability, adaptability, and repeatability testing involving all commercially available PSE controllers including many PSE’s implemented with those controllers. With this test suite, the promise of highly interoperable 4-Pair powering from PSE’s is now a reality.
The PSA 5.2 software release is recommended to all customers with PowerSync Analyzers, PowerSync Programmable Loads, and PhyView Analyzers. For customers with PSA-3202 test blades and PSA-3402 analyzers, a new ALC firmware version 18 accompanies the PSA 5.2 release.
See PSA 5.2.00 Release Notes for further details.
