Getting started Transmitter

  • Press and hold the power button (6) for 3 seconds to turn the transmitter on/off.
  • Press the OK button (7) to enter the menu, and press the Up (8) and Down (9) buttons to scroll the menu. Press the OK button (7) to confirm the selection. Press the Back button (10) to return.

Receiver

  • Press and hold the power button (22) for 3 seconds to turn the receiver on/off.
  • The default mode is the digital detection mode.
  • Blue triangles on the screen indicate the selected items. Green triangles on the screen point at the device ports for cable connection.

Display information

Wire mapping

This function is used to check if the wires within the cable are connected correctly.

  1. Plug one end of the cable into the QC/CONT port (5) on the transmitter and the other end into the RJ45 port (24) on the receiver.
  2. Select CONT (Wire mapping) in the main menu, choose the required cable type, and press the OK button (7). Possible outcomes are shown below:

Cable tracing
This function is used to locate the target cable in a cable bundle.

  1. Plug the loose end of the network cable into the SCAN port (2) on the transmitter, and select SCAN (Cable tracing) in the main menu, and then press the OK button (7).
  2. Select the digital mode or analog mode on the transmitter for cable tracing and press the OK button (7). To switch between the scan modes on the receiver, press the SCAN button (19). The transmitter and the receiver must be set to the same mode. The analog mode enables cable tracing at a distance up to 300m. The scan indicator glows in red when the device is in digital mode, and it flashes in red when the device is in analog mode.
  3. Press the NCV button (20) on the receiver.
  4. Place the receiver near the cable bundle and move the receiver along the cable to trace it. When the sensor is in the close proximity to the target cable, the receiver will emit a beeping sound. To detect the cable more accurately, lower the sensitivity. Turn the sensitivity adjustment knob (17) on the receiver clockwise to adjust the sensitivity (1 to 8 levels). The closer the device is to the object, the louder the signal will be

Port Flash function

This function is used to locate an exact port on a network switch or on a router to which the tested cable is connected.

  1. Plug one end of the network cable into the Length/Flash/PoE port (4) of the transmitter; the other cable end is connected to a PoE switch.
  2. Select Flash (Port Flash function) and press the OK button (7). The following text will be displayed on the screen: Link test. The circle on the display and LEDs under the Length/Flash/PoE port (4) will flash with the same frequency as the LED of the target port, and be different from the other LEDs. The corresponding specification will be displayed on the screen: FDX (full duplex) / HDX (half duplex), Auto-Nego protocol / Non-Auto-Nego protocol. If the test fails or if the cable is incorrectly plugged in, the following text will be displayed: Test time out.

If the length of the cable is less than 5 meters, the displayed cable length value is given only for reference

Cable length measurement

This function is used to measure the length of a cable.

  1. Plug one end of the testing cable to the Length/Flash/PoE port (4) on the transmitter and leave the other cable end disconnected.
  2. Select Length in the main menu and press the OK button (7).
  3. Choose the required cable type and unit of measurement (meter, yard, foot).
  4. Select Start testing and press the OK button (7).
  5. The cable length range shall be of 2.5m to 200m, otherwise the displayed value will be 0m.
  6. If the cable is damaged or if the wires within the cable are short-circuited, the corresponding data will be displayed in a red font.

Possible outcomes are shown below

PoE test
This function is used to identify the pins that provide PoE (Power over Ethernet), the PSE type (standard or non-standard), polarity, mode, and voltage.

  1. Plug the loose end of the PoE cable into the Length/Flash/PoE port (4) on the transmitter and the other end is connected a corresponding port on the PoE source equipment (such as a network switch, router, etc.).
  2. Select PoE (PoE test) in the main menu and press the OK button (7). Possible outcomes are shown below
  • If all 8 pins are used for power supply, the voltage polarity will not be displayed.
  • If there is no test result displayed within 30 seconds, it may mean that the equipment connected is not the power supply equipment

Cable crimping quality check
This function is used to check the quality of cable end crimping for proper connection of conductors to pins.

  1. Plug one end of the testing cable to the QC/CONT port (5) on the transmitter and leave the other cable end disconnected.
  2. Select QC TEST (Quality check of cable connectors) in the main menu and press the OK button (7). Possible outcomes are shown below

Optical power meter function

This function is used to test the optical power and the attenuation value of the optical signal to check fibre cables.

  1. Connect one end of the fibre cable end to the fibre optic connector (1); connect the other fiber cable end to the corresponding connector of the external optical light source (external device
  2. Turn on the external optical light source (external device).
  3. Select OPM (Optical power meter) in the main menu, and press the OK button (7) to enter the optical power meter mode.
  4. Select the unit of measurement (dBm, dB, μW, mW, nW).
  5. Select a wavelength value (850nm, 1300nm, 1310nm, 1490nm, 1550nm, 1625nm).
  6. Set the optical power value by changing the user settings (User value settings).
  7. Select REF (Reference value), then press and hold the OK button (7) to save the current optical power value in the first blue line. The measurement unit will be switched to dB and cannot be changed to other units

If you do not save the value in REF, the first blue line will display normal optical power characteristics, but the second blue line of the user settings will not contain any value.

Visual fault locator

The VFL function is used to test fibre cables.

  1. Plug one end of a fiber cable to the VFL connector (3) on the transmitter and leave the other end of the cable disconnected.
  2. Select VFL (Visual fault locator) in the main menu and press the OK button (7).
  3. You can select three modes: Fast flash 2 Hz, Fast Flash 1 Hz, and Light. In case of no breakage in the cable, the red LED on the end of the cable will light on. If the fiber cable is damaged, the damaged part of the cable will glow red.
