Platinum Tools & TechLogix Showcase PoE Delivery & Integrity Solutions During 2022 CEDIA Expo

Platinum Tools Will Feature the TPS200C Pocket-Sized PoE++ Tester, and TechLogix Will Feature the TL-NS42-POE Fiber-Enabled Network Switch


 HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Sept. 15, 2022 – NSI Industries brands’ Platinum Tools®, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, and TechLogix Network, a leader in innovative audio-visual, security, and datacom solutions, are proud to announce they will feature PoE delivery and integrity solutions during CEDIA Expo 2022, held in Dallas from Sept. 29 – Oct. 1 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth #5035. Platinum Tools will feature the new TPS200C pocket-sized PoE++ tester, and TechLogix will feature the TL-NS42-POE fiber-enabled network switch.

Platinum Tools TPS200

“The easy-to-use TPS200C has been designed for all varieties of PoE…up to 56 volts and 280 watts of power,” explained Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager. “Powered by the PoE circuit, the TPS200C requires no batteries and can be used inline with an actual PoE device to measure current flow, or by itself in Powered Device (PD) Simulation mode to determine the maxi­mum power available from the PoE power source.”

Additional features include:

  • Tests up to 4-pair PoE (IEEE 802.3bt Type 3)
  • Easy-to-read, bright, scrolling OLED display
  • Test PoE on active data cables without interrupting data flow
  • Automatic mode and polarity detection
  • Tester features dual RJ45 ports for testing PoE and dual 2.1×5.5mm DC jacks for testing DC power supplies
  • Includes 2.1×5.5mm DC patch cable
  • Dimensions: 2.50in. square x 1.00in. thick (63.5 x 63.5 x 25.4mm)
  • Weight: 2oz. (55g)

Most fiber-enabled network switches either overload on fiber SFP ports or only support a single slot. The TechLogix TL-NS42-POE provides two SFP ports, allowing switches to be daisy-chained thereby reducing the amount of cable required.

TechLogix TL-NS42-POE

“The TechLogix TL-NS42-POE fiber-enabled network switch provides four twisted pair ports, one fiber SFP port, and one SFP/RJ45 combo port,” explained Cameron Smith, NSI V.P. “It’s ideal for long network runs and merging copper and fiber optic network equipment, including integrating network into MDUs, daisy-chaining security cameras over long distances, and merging fiber and twisted pair.”

Additional features include:

  • 30W PoE+ per channel
  • 12KV surge protection per channel
  • Redundant power input with reverse power protection
  • Single mode and multimode fiber compatible (using the proper SFP transceiver)

Compatible TechLogix SFP transceivers include the TL-1GSFP-MM550 (multimode up to 550m) and the TL-1GSFP-SM20K (single mode up to 20km).

The TL-NS42-POE is compatible with other switches and media converters with matching SFP transceivers modules.
