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.
