Automatic Power Saving Features

The LAN CABLE TESTER has built in power management features intended to extend battery life. By far, the LCD back light is the most power hungry
component in the LAN CABLE TESTER. Use of the LCD back light should therefore be limited to low ambient light applications. The back light may be
toggled ON/OFF by simultaneously pressing the MODE/SEL and ESC function keys. If there is no further menu selection or function testing within thirty
(30) seconds, the back light will be automatically extinguished. Additional power management functions include both a “sleep” mode and an auto “power
off” mode. If there is not any key activity for three (3) minutes, the unit will automatically enter “sleep” mode. All interface circuitry and the LCD display
will be powered down. In this mode the unit draws very little power. Pressing any key will cause the unit to “wake up” to a full functioning state. However,
if there is no key activity for ten (10) minutes, the unit will automatically “power off”. To recover from the “power off” mode, the unit must have its power
switch cycled OFF and then ON. In the “power off” mode the power usage is close to nil. This feature is especially useful if the unit is inadvertently left
powered on. The battery should be replaced when the battery low icon ( ) on the LCD display becomes visible during normal use of the LAN
CABLE TESTER . Additionally, if a low battery is swapped within 1 minute with a new one, the user defined memory contents will be retained. Just
remember to turn the unit OFF before swapping the battery.


Connection: The LAN CABLE TESTER is capable of testing cables in any one of four modes.
Local Test mode is accomplished
by connecting both ends of the
cable under test to the LAN
LOOPBACK IN ports. Local unit
displays an ID equal to zero.
Remote Test mode uses two (2)
with the cable connected between
one unit’s OUT and the other
unit’s LOOPBACK IN. Remote
unit displays an ID equal to zero.
Terminator Loopback mode uses the
supplied terminator ID block connected
at the remote end of the cable, while the
other end of the cable is connected to the
