IntelliTone™ Pro 200 LAN Toner
IntelliTone™ Pro 200 Probe
Overview of Features
The IntelliTone Pro 200 LAN toner and Pro 200 probe let
you locate, isolate, and validate twisted pair (UTP, Cat 5e,
Cat 6), coax cables (RG6, RG59, and others for CATV/CCTV),
bare wire (such as speaker wire and security network
wire), and Cat 3 telephone cabling. The toner also lets you
validate data services.
The toner and probe feature both digital and analog
toning and detection. The digital IntelliTone tone is
primarily used on data cables, and on active networks. In
these environments, the digital signal eliminates cable
misidentification due to signal bleed and radiated or
ambient noise.
The analog tone is primarily used on voice cables, and on
bare wire. The SmartTone™ analog technology will change
cadence when a pair is shorted at the far end. This makes
exact pair identification easy and precise.
The IntelliTone feature also lets you use the toner and
probe to validate and troubleshoot wiring on RJ11 and
RJ45 cables.
The toner detects Ethernet service and indicates active pair
number on Ethernet circuits.
The toner and probe also provide standard functions such
as visual and audible signal strength indication, digital
toning/detection, SmartTone analog toning/detection, and
continuity testing.


IP200 Probe with 9 V battery

Quick Reference Guide
To prevent possible fire, electric shock, or
personal injury:

Never use the toner, probe, or test leads if they
are damaged. Inspect the cases and test leads for
damage before use.

Never open the case except to change the battery;
no user-serviceable parts are inside.

Warning: Risk of personal injury. See explanations
in the manual.
Turn off the toner or probe and disconnect all test
leads before replacing the battery.

Caution: Risk of damage or destruction to
equipment or software. See explanations in the
manual.
Use only a 9V battery, properly installed in the
case, to power the toner and probe.

If this equipment is used in a manner not specified
by the manufacturer, the protection provided by
the equipment may be impaired.

Battery Status
LEDs on the toner and probe light for 1 second at power
on to indicate the battery status:
Toner battery status
LED
Probe battery status
LED
Green: Battery is good.
Yellow: Battery is marginal.
Red: Battery is low.
See “Battery Life and Replacement” on page 16 for more
information on the battery.
Auto Power Down
The toner turns off automatically after approximately 2 ½
hours of inactivity. The probe turns off automatically after
1 hour of inactivity.
To reactivate the toner or probe, turn the rotary switch to
any position except OFF.

Locating and Isolating Terminated
UTP/STP Cables with the IntelliTone
The IntelliTone Pro toner provides two toning modes for
locating and isolating cables; one digital tone  and
one SmartTone 1kHz analog tone .
With the toner set to digital tone mode, the probe can be
set to either locate  or isolate .
Both toning signals are available at all connectors on the
toner.
The digital tone  is optimized for 4 pair UTP data
environments and the SmartTone analog tone  is
optimized for two wire locating.
To locate and isolate cables using the digital tone, do the
following:
1
Connect the IT200 toner to a jack or punch-down block
as shown in Figure 1.
2
Turn the toner’s rotary switch to .
3
Turn the IP200 probe’s rotary switch to  (locate).
4
Use the probe to find the general location of the tone
at a cable rack, patch panel, or behind a wall. The
SYNC LED lights up green when the probe is receiving
the IntelliTone signal.
Locating and Isolating Terminated UTP/STP Cables with the IntelliTone
In locating mode, the probe’s LEDs light up from 1 to 8
as the signal strength increases. The higher the
number, the stronger the signal.
Note
If you cannot locate the IntelliTone signal on 2conductor cables, the cable may be shorted. Use
the cable map test (page 8) to test for shorts on
cables with RJ11 and RJ45 connectors. Use the
continuity test (page 12) to check for shorts on
coax and non-terminated cables.
5
Turn the probe’s rotary switch to  (isolate).
6
Use the probe to isolate the tone source in the cable
bundle or at the patch panel. The SYNC LED lights up
green when the probe is receiving the IntelliTone
signal.
In isolating mode, the probes LEDs light up from 1 to 8 as
the signal strength increases.

Isolating Individual Wire Pairs with the SmartTone Analog Function
Isolating Individual Wire Pairs with
the SmartTone Analog Function
The  position on the IntelliTone probe and toner lets
you use the probe to trace using an analog 1kHz tone.
SmartTone is intended for use on dry pairs of wires that
are un-terminated at both ends of the run. It is not
intended to be used on live wires with a DC power source
(e.g., live telephone lines), nor will it work on wire pairs
that are carrying AC signals. SmartTone works on many
types of wire pairs including twisted pair, house wiring,
and coax (the shield is one wire and the center conductor
is the other wire of the pair).
SmartTone Positive Identification
1
The toner red lead must be connected to one of the
wires of the pair, and the black lead must be
connected to the other wire of the pair.
2
Put the toner and probe in the  position.
3
At the far end of the cable run, place the probe near
the wires you are tracing. Pick the pair that gives the
loudest signal in the toner speaker.
4
Short and release the two wires of the pair. If you
hear a change in the pattern of the tone, then you
have located the target pair of wires.
If you don’t hear a change in the tone pattern, then
pick a different pair and try again until you find the
pair that causes the tone pattern to change.

Validating RJ11 and RJ45 Cable Maps
You can use the IT200 toner and IP200 probe to validate
the cable map on RJ11 and RJ45 connectors. The cable
map function finds the most common wiring faults on
twisted pair cabling: shorts, opens, and crossed pairs.
1
Connect an IT200 toner to a RJ11 or RJ45 jack, as
shown in Figure 2.
2
Turn the toner’s rotary switch to .
3
If necessary, use the IP200 probe to locate the correct
connector at the other end of the cabling, as
described in the previous section.
4
Connect the IP200 probe to the RJ11 or RJ45 jack;
then turn the probe’s rotary switch to CABLE MAP.
5
The probe’s LEDs and beeper indicate the cable map,
as follows:

8
The number of each LED corresponds to a pin on
the connector. You can enable the SYNC LED to
validate the shield. See “Validating the Cable’s
Shield” on page 10.

Each LED that corresponding to an active pin
flashes briefly, then should light for about 1
second. The brief flash shows which LED is next in
the sequence.

The probe also beeps in different tones to indicate
good wiring, miswires, shorts, and opens.

Miswire: If one LED flashes briefly, then another
LED lights for one second, the wire for the first
LED is miswired to the pin for the second LED.

Short: If two LEDs turn on for 1 second at the same
time, those two pins are shorted together. If more
than 2 wires are shorted together, the LEDs for the
shorted pins indicate opens.

Open: If an LED flashes briefly, then no LEDs turn
on, that pin is open.
