DataLite™ Cable Identifier Instructions STEP 1: Punch down all network cables on patch panels randomly. There is no need to pre-label the cables. STEP 2: Insert DataLite™ Modules into all punched down patch panel ports. STEP 3: Connect patch cord from power unit into work station outlet (Any 1:1 wired patch cord will also work). Note that the power unit automatically comes on when patch cord is plugged in. Do not leave patch cord plugged in beyond the normal time that it takes to locate the PPL port in order to prevent unnecessary battery usage. STEP 4: At the patch frame, observe which DataLite™ lights up on the patch panel and label the work area outlet (WAO) with that number. Example: Port 8 on the PPl will be marked “8” on the WAO; Port 14 will be marked “14”, etc. You may use any numbering scheme desired. Example: Using two 48 port PPLs, label the second panel 49-96 in order to eliminate same numbering. STEP 5: If using two DataLite™ power units, (one switched to “RED” and the other to “GREEN”) you will observe a red indication or a green indication on the panel dependent on which helper is plugged in. The observer at the patch panel might respond over the radio or phone “Green 24” or “Red 56” in order to distinguish between the two locations. HINTS: Use two-way or three-way communications between workers to make the job go faster. Leave DataLite™ in non-terminated ports for future adds. The DataLite™ is a great tool for sorting out someone else’s “rats nest”. If your customer requires sequential labeling of WAOs, use the DataLite™ to verify port location. NOTE: The DataLite™ is not a tester. Use proper equipment to verify NEXT/Cat5 tests, etc. Do not leave patch cord plugged into power unit as this will weaken batteries. The Lithium battery is replaceable. It is a CR2053, the same as the memory backup battery in your PC. It should last several years under normal use.
