Page.8.
instrument works abnormally.
Multi-meter: the red and black multi-meter pen must insert the corresponding port.
Warnings: Instrument communication port is not permitted access circuit voltage over 6V,
otherwise damage the tester.
3.2 Instrument connection
3.2.1 IP camera connection
Power an IP camera with an independent power supply, then connect the IP camera to the IPC tester’s
LAN port, if the link indicator of the tester’s LAN port is green and the data indicator flickers, it means
the IP camera and the IPC tester are communicating. If the two indicators don’t flicker, check if the IP
camera is powered on or the network cable is not functioning properly.
Note:1) If the IP camera requires PoE power, then connect the IP camera to the IP tester’s LAN port .
The tester will supply PoE Power for the IP camera. Click on the icon labeled POE to turn the PoE
Power off or on.
2) If use the tester’s menu to turn off the tester’s PoE power supply, the PoE switch and the power
sourcing equipment are allowed to connect to the tester’s PSE port, and the PoE power will be supplied
to the IP camera by the tester’s LAN port. On this condition, the tester cannot receive data from IP
camera, but the computer connected to the PoE switch can receive the data via the the tester.
Page.9.
Warning: Poe switch or PSE power sourcing equipment only can be connected to tester “PSE
IN” port, otherwise will damage the tester.
3.2.2 Analog camera connection

properly or not plugged in, it will say “Destination host unreachable” or have 100% packet loss. If the
tester connects to the device, the send and receive packets will have a 0% packet loss.
Application: PING testing is the most conventional network debugging tools. It is used for testing if
the connected IP camera or other network equipment’s Ethernet port is working normally and the IP
address is correct.
It’s normal that the first data packet will be lost when test start.
(2)IP address scan
Connect the cable to the LAN port, click icon
to enter, Set your IP address search range by
changing the Start and End IP addresses. Click the “Start” button to scan the IP address range. You can
also input an IP address in the Port Number Scan to scan for open ports.
Page.37.
(3)Network test (Ethernet bandwidth test)
Network test (Ethernet bandwidth test)
To use the Network tester, you will need two IP testers. One is used as a Server and the other as a Client.
Both devices must be on the same network segment in order to communicate. Click the
icon to
open the Network Tester app.
a).Start the server: Click “Start Server” button to use the tester as a Server. It will display its IP
address at the top of the screen.
Page.38.
b). Start send packet test: Using the other IP tester, type in the Server's IP address at the top right
corner of the screen. This app is used to send packets for network speed testing. Click the “Start” button
to send the packets and start testing.
Network bandwidth testing can also be tested with a computer using compatible network bandwidth
testing software. Install network bandwidth testing software on a computer, as a test Client or Server, to
do the mutual testing with the tester. If use computer as the server, the computer IP address is :
192.168.0.39
Page.39.
Tester as Client, tester’s IP address is: 192.168.0.238. The Server and the Client are at the same network
segment, but with different IP address. Input Server’s IP address 192.168.0.39 in the tester and click
“Start” to test network bandwidth.
Or use tester as a Server, computer as test Client(select Client, input tester’s IP address to test)
Page.40.
When use tester as Server, shows results:
(4)Port Flashing
Connect a network cable to the meter’s “LAN” port, click the icon
to open the Port Flashing
app. Click “Start”. The IP tester sends a unique signal to make the connected LAN port of the switch
flash.
If the tester and PoE switch are connected well, the LAN port of POE switch flash at special frequency,
If not, no any changes on the LAN port
Page.41.
Application:
The tester will send special signals to make the connected LAN port flicker at special frequency, which
will enable the installers to easily and quickly find the connected Ethernet cable. This function can
prevent mistakenly insertion or disconnection non-corresponding cable to artificially interrupt network
connection.
(5)DHCP server
Click on the DHCP icon to open the DHCP server app. Select the “Start” check box at the top and make

Note: Trace route testing results only for reference, for accurate test route tracking, Pls use professional
Ethernet tester.
Click
to enter trace route
Input tracking IP address or domain name in the Remote Host IP. Set maximum hop count, normally
default is 30
Click “start” to trace the goal address
Page.43.
(7)Link monitor
Click the
icon to open the Link Monitor app. This app is used to see if an IP address is occupied
by other network devices. This will avoid new address conflicts
Click “Add ” and enter the desired IP address. To test different network segments, click the “Settings”
icon on the main menu and go to IP Settings and make the desired changes. Once the desired IP
addresses are added to the Link Monitor list, click “Start”. If the IP address status shows a check mark
the IP address is occupied. If the IP address status shows an X the IP address is available. Click “Stop”
to stop the testing
Application:
Add an IP camera or other network device to the current network group, the new IP address must not be
occupied, otherwise it will result IP conflicts and stop the equipment normal working. Link monitor can
check if the new setting IP address is occupied.

When the IP tester is turned on, the DC 12V power output ON by default. The smaller end of the
supplied converter cable connects to the tester’s DC12V/1A OUTPUT and the other end connects to the
camera’s power input.
Application
Power output function is mainly used in the camera field demonstration and testing, meanwhile, for
some camera installation sites, If there is no power outlet for the adapter to power the camera, the tester
can offer temporary power for it. But we do not suggest tester supply power for a long time.
Page.64.
Notice:
a.
Don’t input any power into the “DC12/1A OUTPUT” port of the tester
b.
Man-made damage is not within our company’s warranty
c.
The IP tester’s power output capacity is 1A. If the IP camera uses more than 1A, the tester will
automatically enter a protection mode
d.
Disconnect all cables from the tester and reboot it to resume using the tester.
The IPC tester power output is close to 1A, if the IP camera’s power is over 2V, the tester will
auto enter protection mode. Disconnect all the connections of the tester and then connect the
tester with power adaptor to resume the tester.
e.
Make sure the tester has a sufficient charge otherwise the tester will not able to provide enough
output power
