Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2005
Sifos Technologies (http://www.sifos.com) introduces the Compact PSA, the newest PowerSyncÂ Analyzer for testing IEEE 802.3af - Power over Ethernet (PoE). The Compact is ideal for engineers focused on the functions and parameters of PoE design, and troubleshooting. It eliminates the need to buy a chassis and plug-in blades.
The 2-port Compact will easily fit into the pocket of a lab coat. It weighs less than 1.5 pounds (.68 kilograms) and measures .5Â x 4.25Â x 9.25Â (3.8 x 10.8 x 23.5 cm). The Compact can be powered by AC or a USB cable from a PC. Despite its size, it can dissipate 30 Watts per port.
ÂPriced under $5000, the Compact shatters the price barrier for PoE testing. A whole new, low cost tier of PoE testers has been created. Engineers can now have a PoE tester without fighting corporate red tape. They no longer have to share their department's PoE tester,Â said Chuck Koch, Sifos Technologies Marketing Director.
The Compact uses the same software as all other PowerSync Analyzers. Tcl programming scripts and PowerSync Interactive (GUI) are included with the Compact. The PSE Conformance Test Suite is an option. Tcl scripts can be run directly on any PSA. This allows engineers from different departments to leverage the work of others, saving a significant amount of time in the product development cycle.
ÂThe Compact greatly reduces the cost of PoE test. It creates a new, low priced, high performance tier of test equipment to the PoE market,Â said David Lucia, Sifos Technologies President.
