1.1.1 Error Indicator
1.1.2 A wire pair indicator flashes (indicator #13,14,15,16) indicates an error in the
connection. Error indicator flashes specify an error. If more than one wire pair indicator
flashes, troubleshoot on each case until all the indicators go back to GREEN(Normal).

Fig.3 REVERSED

Open Circuit: Open Circuit is not commonly seen and therefore no indication is included in
the Tester. Typically there are 2 to 4 coaxial cables pairs in the network. Corresponding
indicators are off if RJ45 sockets are not connected with coaxial cable pairs. User debugs the
network with the wire pair indicators accordingly.
Short Circuit: shown in Fig.1.
Miswired: shown in Fig. 2: two pairs of wires are connected to wrong terminals.
Reversed: shown in Fig.3: Two wires within the pair are reversely connected to the pins in the
remote.
Split Pairs: shown in Fig.4: Split pairs occurs when the tip (positive conductor) and ring
(negative conductor) of two pairs are twisted and interchanged.
Note:
The Tester only shows one type of error per test. Fix one error first then make sure to perform
the test again to check other possible errors.
Test Mode
Follow the steps:
a)
Connect one of the wires to RJ45 transmitter socket.
b)
Connect the other end to RJ45 receiver socket.
c)
Turn the Tester power on.
d)
Press “TEST” button once to start testing.
e)
During the test press “TEST” button again to stop testing.
Example: wires pair 1-2 and pair 3-6 are short circuit. In test mode, the error indicators will
show as following:

1-2 and 3-6 indicators flash green lights, short circuit indicator flash red
light.

4-5 indicator shows green lights (no error)

7-8 indicator shows green lights (no error)

1.1.3 Debug Mode
In Debug Mode, detail of the connection error is displayed. Condition of every pair of wires is
shown twice in order. With the wire pair indicators and error indicators, the network cable
can be indentified and debugged. Follow the steps:
a)
Connect one end of wire to RJ45 transmitter socket.
b)
Connect the other end of wire to receiver socket.
c)
Power on the Tester, power indicator is on.
d)
Press and hold “TEST” button until all the wire pairs and error indicators are all
on, release the button afterward.
e)
Determine the error from the indicators.
f)
If a wire pair indicator turns green twice (one short, one long), and other error
indicators are off, then the wire pair is in good condition.
g)
If the wire pair malfunctions, the corresponding indicator will flash once and
then turn on (long) again with the error indicator on.
h)
In debugging mode, press and release the “TEST” button to end the debug.
Example: Wire pair 1-2 and pair 3-6 are short circuit. In debug mode indicators will show
as follow:

Wire pair 1-2 flashes green light, wire pair 3-6 indicator and short circuit
indicator flashes red light.

Wire pair 3-6 flashes green light, wire pair 1-2 indicator and short circuit
indicator flashes red light.

4-5 indicator shows green lights (no error)

7-8 indicator shows green lights (no error)

Coaxial Cable Testing
WARNING
TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND INJURY, UNPOWER THE CIRCUIT WHILE
PERFORMING TESTS.
Follow the steps:
a)
Connect one end of coaxial cable to transmitter BNC socket, another end to
remote BNC socket.
b)
Power on the Tester, power indicator is on.
c)
BNC indicator should be off. If the light is on, the network is miswired.
d)
Press “BNC” button on the transmitter, if coaxial cable indicator display green
light, the network connection in good condition, if the indicator display red light,
the network is miswired.
e)
Continuity Testing
WARNING
TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND INJURY, UNPOWER THE CIRCUIT WHILE
PERFORMING TESTS.
a)
Use function “CONT” on the transmitter to do the testing (to test both ends of cable
simultaneously). Turn the switch on the transmitter to “CONT” position; connect red
lead on the transmitter to one end of the target cable and black lead to the other end. If
the CONT indicator display red light, the cable continuity is in good condition.
(Network resistance lower then 10KΩ )
b)
Use “TONE” function on the transmitter along with the receiver (when both ends of
network cables are not copresent.) Connect the wire adaptor on transmitter to the
11
Mastech MS6813 Multi Function Network Cable Tester
network. Turn the switch to “TONE” mode and the “TONE” indicator turns red. Move
the receiver antenna close the target network cable, press and hold the power button
on the receiver. Adjust receiver volume through sensitivity switch. Network is well
connected if the receiver makes buzz sound.
1.3
Network Cable Tracking
WARNING
TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND INJURY, DO NOT CONNECT RECEIVER TO ANY
AC SIGNAL LARGER THEN 24V.
2.3.1 Sending Audio Frequency Signal:
Connect both leads(“RJ45” Adaptor、“BNC” Adaptor、“RJ11” Adaptor、the red lead and
back lead) on the transmitter to the network cable (or connect the red lead to target
cable and black lead to ground depends on the circuit). Turn the transmitter switch to
“TONE” mode and the indicator will lights up. Press and hold receiver power button,
move the receiver close to the target network to receive signal. Adjust receiver volume
through sensitivity switch.
2.3.2 Tracking Network Cable
Use “TONE” mode on transmitter along with the receiver to track cable. Connect the wire
adaptor to the target network (or connect the red lead to target cable and black lead to
ground depends on the circuit). Switch to “TONE” mode on the transmitter, “TONE” indicator
turns on. Press and hold the power button on the receiver. Move the receiver near the target
network to receive audio frequency signal. The Tester detects the direction and continuity of
the network cable. Adjust receiver volume through sensitivity switch.

2.5 Telephone Line Modes Testing
2.5.1 Differentiate TIP or RING wire:
Turn the switch on the transmitter to “OFF”, connect the corresponding wire adaptor to the
open telephone lines in the network. If,
a)
“CONT” indicator turns green, the red lead on the transmitter connects to RING of
the telephone line.
b)
“CONT” indicator turns red, the red lead on the transmitter connects to TIP of the
telephone line.
2.5.2 Determine Idle, Vibrate or in use (off-hook):
Turn the switch on the transmitter to “OFF” mode. When the target telephone line is at work,
connect the red lead to RING line and the black lead to TIP line, If,
a)
“CONT” indicator turns green, the telephone line is idle.
b)
“CONT” indicator stays off, the telephone line is off-hook.
c)
“CONT” indicator turns green along with periodic red flash, the telephone line is
in vibrate mode.
d)
When connect receiver antenna to an explored telephone wire, press and hold
the receiver power button to receive the audio signal.
