Product interface and key introduction

Main unit port instructions

  • Two RJ 45 interfaces on the main unit: one of them is “MAIN” interface (“M” for short), and the other is “SCAN” interface (“S” for short); RJ 11 interface, USB interface and BNC interface
  • M interface is used for measuring length and others, but not used for cable tracing; “S” interface is used for cable tracing test and “local” connection test.RJ11 interface, USB interface and BNC interface on the main unit are used for line-to-line, length testing and line tracing.

Product operation method

There are nine functional options in the main menu interface

  1. Language – English or Chinese.
  2. Wire mapping – Connection and disconnection test: To test connection of M, S R end-end cable and perform positioning of the failure.
  3. Cable Length -Pairing and length measurement: verify cable length, open circuit distance and pairing, crosstalk.
  4. Scan cable – To find target cable among lots of network cables, telephone cables, USB cables, coaxial cables and other kinds of wires.
  5. Type – Pair / Tel / USB / COAX / BNC Cable.
  6. Unit – Meter / Feet / Yards.
  7. Calibrate – Seven calibration coefficient can be stored in it. User can calibrate network/ telephone/ USB/ Coax cables.
  8. Data loading – Select the calibration coefficients stored in system.
  9. Auto power off— set the time for power off.

Cable tracing test:

Power on the main tester and enter main test menu, press “UP”, “DOWN” key to move  cursor  to cable scan, and then press “ENTER” key to find the line. The following interface will be shown:

Connect the cable to be found with the corresponding RJ-45 (Scan) port of the emitter, (RJ-11, USB or BNC). Take network line finding as an example: Connect the network cable to be found with RJ-45 port, move “    ->   ” cursor  to cable scan, and press “ENTER” key to perform line finding test as shown in the figure below:

Crosstalk Test:

As shown in the figure below: it shows 3, 6 and 4, 5 with crosstalk. The line pair with crosstalk will flash to indicate failure. If the testing cable is crosstalk, it will slow down the network speed.

Crosstalk interface is shown as below:

The usage of receiver:

Install 9 V battery, push the test key, and get close to the cables with probe. You can hear “beep” and the power led flashes. When the probe finds the targeted cable, the voice will be loud and the led light will be bright.

  • Tracing cable (RJ-45/RJ-11 Cable) which is connected to switch or router.

Insert the cable into port RJ-11/ RJ-45 (S), Press the testing  key  of receiver, “Power” will glow, then hold the receiver close to the cables, when the probe gets close to the targeted one, you can hear clear and loud “beep, beep, beep” .  (Note: telephone cable into RJ-11, LAN cable into port RJ-45(S)).

  • Tracing Coax cable

Insert the cable into port BNC, Press the testing key of receiver, “Power” will glow, then hold the receiver close to the cables. When the probe gets close to the targeted one, you can hear clear and loud “beep, beep, beep”. (Note: turning down the voice slowly help trace cable easier).

  • Locate the short or breakage point (e.g.: metal line)

Connect the metal line with the cable clips, press the testing key of receiver, hold the receiver close to the cables, “beep, beep, beep” will generate, but when the probe targets the breakage point, “beep, beep, beep” stops, which indicates that is where the breakage is.

Note:

  1. The metal line is de-energized.
  2. Turn up the voice, which helps to locate the breakage easily.
  3. Two cables must be connected together, if only one cable is connected, the black clip has to be grounded.

Type Selection:

  • Type: Twisted-pair cable

Users should choose  the type ”Pair(8)” for testing network cable .After this test the cable length and check its wire map.

  • Type: Telephone cable

Users should choose  the type ”Tel(6)” for testing telephone cable .After this test the cable length and check its wire map.

  • Type: USB cable

Users should choose  the type ”USB(4)” for testing USB cable .After this test the cable length and check its wire map.

  • Type: BNC coaxial cable

Users should choose  the type ”BNC(2)” for testing BNC cable .After this test the cable length   and check its wire map.  

Calibration function:

Due to different materials of the cables, calibration is required before testing the cables. The function of calibration is for accurately measuring length of the cables.

Auto power-off:

Choose the time for power off according to our own requirement.
