INTRODUCTION
The TC-NT1 Network Cable Tester is an innovative, practical tester that
can easily read the correct pin configuration of 10BASE-T, 10BASE-2,
RJ45/RJ11 modular, 258A, TIA-568A/568B and Token Ring cables by
comparing one transmitting end to the corresponding receiving end.
The included remote terminator allows the user to test installed cable
either at a wall jack or a patch panel. Verifying continuity and testing
for faults such as open, shorted and crossed pairs has never been
easier and more affordable.
FEATURES
* Displays the actual pin configuration of 10BASE-T and 10BASE-2
Ethernet, RJ45/RJ11 modular, 258A, TIA-568A/568B and Token Ring
cables
* Provides easy to read continuity and fault status display
* Checks for continuity, open wire, shorted pair and crossed pair faults
* Allows for remote testing of installed cables from wall jack or patch
panel
* Tests shield wire integrity
* Auto or manual scanning

OPERATION
I. Loopback Test
1. 10Base-T Test
1.1 Plug one end of the tested cable into the transmitting RJ45 jack on
the master unit marked with a ' ' and the other end of the cable into
the remaining receiving RJ45 jack.
1.2 Slide power switch on. The upper row of LEDs will start to scan in
sequence if the Auto/Manual button is set on "Auto" mode. The
LED for pin 1 will light up if the button is in "Manual" mode.
1.3 Switch back and forth from Auto or Manual scanning mode by
pressing the Auto/Manual button on the side of the master testing
unit.
1.4 Once both ends of the cable are plugged in properly, the second row
of LEDs will illuminate according to the corresponding LEDs in the
top row.
1.5 Read the results of the LED display for the pin configuration status
of the tested cable. If you fail to read the results the first time in
Auto mode, you may wait for the second LED scan, or simply switch
to Manual mode for pin by pin testing. In Manual mode, pressing
the square "Test" button will advance testing to the next pin.
Note: Make sure the battery power is sufficient. Insufficient battery
power will lead to dimmed LEDs and incorrect results.

3. Coaxial Cable Test
3.1 Plug the two attached BNC adapter cables on both RJ45 jacks.
Then connect the tested cable to each end of the BNC adapter
cables
3.2 For the remaining testing procedures, please refer to steps 1.2 to
1.5
Note:
1. The center pin of BNC should be read on LED 2.

II. Remote Test
1. Plug one end of the tested cable to the transmitting RJ45 jack on the
master unit marked with a ' ' and plug the other end into the remote
terminator. If the tested cable is installed in a patch panel or wall
plate, you may use the included patch cable to solve the connector
gender problem. Please refer to Diagram7 & 8.
2. Now, set the Auto/Manual switch to Auto mode for one-person
testing.
3. Read the test results from the LED display on remote terminator.
