There is Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) like hubs and routers, and Powered Devices (PD) like IP phones, wireless access points or network cameras. But there is no way to check a data port by using a DMM for power. This is only possible with a tester who knows about the handshake protocoll between source and equipment.

Kurth Electronic`s POEcheck handles this. It is a new, small and easy to use test unit to check out if the DATA Port carries power or not. It also shows by two LEDs what system is in use - type A or type B regarding the regulation IEEE 802.3af. POEcheck handles all the required setup informations.
Plug in the POEcheck either by a patch cable or by the test cable who comes with and watch the LEDs for light up.

Power over Ethernet regarding the IEEE802.3af regulation defines a way to build Ethernet power-sourcing equipment and powered terminals. The specification involves delivering power over shielded or unshielded twisted-pair wiring. There are two versions - Type A (endspan) where the router or switch delivers the power over the data pairs. Or Type B midspan) where the power is delivered over the spare pairs. In any case PoE is managed by a multi-stage handshake protocol to protect equipment from damage and to manage power budgets. This features protecting the equipment but also makes it impossible to check for power with standard equipment.
