Wiring
You can select from the list of different possible types of wiring
(which pin to which wire). This can even be changed during the
cable test. It is important to specify the correct type of wiring since
all of the information concerning the wire pairs and pin assignment
are based on it. Without this information, there can be no Good
result from a test. The proper identification of errors in the case of
split pairs also requires a correct definition.
Sixteen popular versions are predefined. The following
abbreviations are used:
UTP = Unshielded Twisted Pair cable
STP = Shielded Twisted Pair cable
CR = cross connected cable in conjunction with wiring version T568A or
T568B
KE7200 comes with 16 predefined wiring versions and 10
predefined cable versions. With the setup function, new definitions
can be created at any time, or existing ones can be revised. For
details, see Appendix A.
Velocity
This is the percent propagation velocity of the signal in the cable
with reference to the speed of light. This information is necessary to
measure length with the TDR function. The value must be correct if
the measurements are to be precise.
Obtain the data from the cable manufacturer. If there is no data
available on datasheet or web – page, the VF factor can be
determined from a piece of cable with a known length.
First perform the cable test on this piece of cable without a
remote. After the test is finished, go to the Velocity menu. The
measured length for the set VF is displayed here. Press the ▲

or ▼ buttons until the known cable length is displayed. The
displayed VF value is the VF of this cable. You can then create
your own table definition in the Test settings/cable definition
menu. Best if the reference cable is appr. 10m or 30 ftRemote
unit ID
Either none or all of the remote units necessary for correctly and
quickly testing the cables are delivered with number 32 to simplify
storage.
Select this function to easily reprogram a connected remote unit to
the desired number. After changing the number, write down the
new number with a pencil in the provided field.
MAC address
The KE7200 comes with a MAC address set. All of the devices
have the same address. To work in networks with MAC address
verification, the address can be defined here.
IP address
The IP address of the KE7200 is set. This address is used as the
device address, even during the IP test, for example as a static
network address. It can be changed at any time. Simply set the
address with the ▲ and ▼ / ◄ and ► buttons and save with SEL.
The change can also be made directly during the IP test in the
same manner.
The
Device settings
All of the device settings are made in the Settings/device settings/
menu.
These are preset empirical values and can be left unchanged. If
you change some by accident and you want to geet back to the
factory settings – you can use "Reset to defaults."
In any case, to every menue position the possible operating steps
are shown on the bottom status line of the menu.

Cable definitions
You can select from the list of the different cables in use. The cable
type is assigned to the name and associated VF value. The VF
value is needed for measuring length. The cable type only appears
in the saved or printed results. Enter the cable that is being used.
You can create your own definitions..
Implementation of the tests
The KE7200 tests the connected line for external voltage each time
before starting one of the four possible tests. If external voltage is
present, the test is not started and the level of the voltage is
displayed in volts. The test may only be run after the external
voltage has been turned off.
External voltage does not have anything to do with PoE during this
type of detection. With PoE systems working properly, the voltage
supply always needs to be activated.
Cable test
The cable test can be run with or without the KE7010 remote unit. If
it is run without the 7010 remote, only the distance to the panel is
measured and crosstalk from split pairs is checked.
When the remote unit is connected to the end, measuring the
length using the TDR method is sufficiently precise for determining
whether the panel lies within the 90 m range. This test can
measure a maximum of 150 m.
We recommend measuring the length for billing issues of installed
cables separately without the remote. This measurement of length
is more precise since a specific end is detectable without the
remote.
Performing the test
Using the supplied patch cables, connect up to 32 remote units to
the ports in the building to be measured. If only one remote is being
used, the remote needs to be brought to the next connection point
after the test. When using a helper, the helper can determine
whether the test yielded any errors by the flashing rhythm of the
LED. If no errors are found, the LED flashes slowly once every
second and the remote can be brought to the next port.

Operating manual
KE7200
However, we recommend using several remotes, one for each
room. With the possible 32 remotes, somewhat larger facilities or a
section of a facility can be easily covered.
The main advantage is that it saves time since only one person is
required. At the same time, the measurements are clearly assigned
by the remote ID in the documentation.
With the 0.5 m patch cable, connect the KE7200 (supplied) to the
port to be tested in the patch panel.
With the scrollbar on "Cable test," start the test by pressing the SEL
button. The message "Cable test running" indicates that the test is
underway and the progress is displayed as a percentage. If the test
is without errors, a long beep sounds and the okay checkmark is
shown in the display. The LED in the remote flashes once every
second. The wiremap shows the correct wiring result.
If an error is found, two short beeps sound, the LED in the remote
flashes quickly 4 times (0.5 seconds in length), then pauses for one
second, and then flashes again quickly 4 times, etc.
The number of the remote unit is always displayed in the KE7200
at the top left of the display. This is followed by the type of wiring.
This can be changed by pressing the ▼ button. Then the set VF
value is displayed. It is either selected by choosing a cable type, or
by setting it directly beforehand.
The wire mapping is displayed in the main window. This clearly
identifies any circuitry errors. Split pairs are displayed with a branch
to the linked wire which then returns. The measured distance to the
panel appears in right field. Distances of less than 2 m are not
shown. The measurement is too imprecise at this close range.
The maximum length that can be measured is approximately 150
m. However, this depends on the cable itself.
The bottom display line is the dialogue line. The possible operating
steps for the current test are displayed in this line.
Navigate with the ◄ / ► buttons to see the identified details per
wire. This allows for example an open or short to be clearly
assigned to the near or far end. If the fault is somewhere in
between, then its location is indicated in meters or feet.
The ◄ button reveals the length of the wires and the ► button
indicates the number of errors, type of errors, the affected pin,
where it should be and where it actually is, if misconnected, as well
as the distance to the fault. In the case of split pairs, of course only

the linked pair can be defined. Sometime individual couplings
between other wires can be identified. Because of the split pair, the
crosstalk also relates to other neighboring wire pairs. Make sure
that the selected wiring version (such as 568A or 568B etc.)
corresponds to the actual cabling.
Save the data
After the measurement has been taken, you can either exit
measuring by pressing ESC, or you can save the measurement.
Press the SEL button to open the Save the data menu. The default
name of the measurement is displayed, followed by a number. A
unique name must be provided if you want to associate the data at
a later time. We recommend the customer name or number. Enter
the name by pressing the▲ or ▼ button. This allows you to scroll
through the alphabet and numbers 0-9. Press SEL to enter the
desired character. Change the cursor position by pressing ◄ and
►.
The name remains entered until it is overwritten. That is, if the
customer remains the same, you do not have to change anything
when saving the next measurement. The number of the
measurement is automatically incremented. Afterward, you can
sort, print out and save based on the customer number or name.
Remember that this setting may need to be changed before starting
a series of measurements at a different facility.
The available memory is displayed in the second line. A total of
approximately 14,000 entries is possible.
Cable/wire trace Patch Port identification
The KE7200 has two different ways of identifying a known
connection box on the patch panel, switch or hub. Insert the test
cable of the KE7200 into the outlet box in the room and select Test
Link/Blink in the Cable/wire trace menu. This only tests if the box is
active in the network. The response is displayed in the status line. If
there is an active connection, the message appears: "Ethernet
10/100/1000 Mbit connection“
and only the identified speed is displayed. The NLP is transmitted
down to the hub or switch and the Link LED on the corresponding
port is blinking slowly. ( 4 sec pause, 1 sec on)
If the port is not active, "No connection" is displayed. Then you can
switch to one of the 4 tone transmission modes. The trace tone is
transmitted on all of the wire pairs. The assigned port in the patch
panel can be clearly identified with the PROBE by hold the button
“high” pressed and moving with the probe tip close over the open
Patch Panel ports

PoE test according to IEEE 802.3af
Connect the KE7200 on the end of the ETH cable where the POE
device will be connected.
Select the menue position POE Test and start the test by pressing
the SEL button. The KE7200 activates the PoE port and shows in
the display whether the PoE is available or not. If the PoE can be
activated, KE7200 starts the activation process regarding 802.3af. .
Then the maximum load is applied to drain the cable charge. The
maximum available power is then measured. The standard
regulates the voltage that can be on the line when a specific current
is flowing. If the voltage is below the standard value, the KE7200
reduces the load until the voltage lies within the defined range. This
power is then calculated and displayed.
This information is important in every network with PoE powered
devices since faults repeatedly arise because the power supply in
the switch has reached the limit or the line is too long or has other
defects like bad connections etc. If a small, additional load is
created, for example from different operating conditions such as
turning on an infrared light at night at a IP-Camera, the network
fails and the switch only provides the emergency power. This
situation cannot be detected without the proper test equipment.
IP test
In the IP test, the KE7200 will search the network for IP addresses
and users. This can be done in DHCP mode or with a fixed IP. If
the network is also monitoring MAC addresses, the MAC address
of the KE7200 can be changed.
First, DHCP mode is started by selecting "IP test/DHCP request". A
connection to the network is established. Once this is available, it is
shown in the status line. The IP address allocated to the KE7200
via DHCP is displayed. The search for allocated IP addresses
starts immediately in the assigned address space. The KE7200
then queries all of the addresses for information which it lists. If
names are available, they are displayed; if not, only the IP address
is displayed.
This procedure can take a while, especially if there are many users
in the network. The display monitors the found IP addresses.
After the search is finished, "Network" is displayed at the top
position. Press SEL to show general network information such as
the connection speed, the actual IP address and netmask. Press
the ▼ button to go to the next page. The following is displayed:

Press SEL to save these data.
Press ESC to open the user list. When a user is selected, the IP
and MAC address are displayed in addition to the name (if
available). To test the connection, this address can then be pinged
in this menu.
Select SEL to open the PING menu. The range is displayed in the
top left corner. You can change it from 32 to 124 bytes with the ▲ /
▼ buttons.
Start pinging by pressing SEL.
The KE7200 continuously transmits pings to the selected address
and is waiting for the answer. This is done at the maximum
possible speed so that a kind of stress test is simultaneously
performed for all components.
The success of the test is displayed by the number of sent pings
and the number of lost pings. Then the maximum, minimum and
average response times are displayed. If there are many lost
packets – it indicates that some parts in the link are may be defect.
This can be cabling as well as Net work cards or the computer
himself.
Transmit measurements
The saved measurements can be sent to the KE Manager for
further use.
Start the Manager on the PC.
Connect the KE7200 to the PC using an Ethernet cable. In the
main menu, select "Transmit measurements."
The saved data are transmitted immediately after synchronization
and appear in the Manager window. The KE7200 can now be
disconnected from the network. You can connect either direct to a
NIC in the PC or to any port on a network where the PC is
connected.
If there are no saved measurements, this is reported.
After uploading, the data on the KE7200 can be deleted. If they
should not be deleted, press ESC.
