  • Turn off any PC nodes connected to the cabling you are testing. 
  • If you want the Autotest to report cable length, remove the terminator from the far end of the cabling.
  • Attach any channel link interface adapter to the main unit.
  • Turn the rotary switch to AUTOTEST.
  • Verify that the test standard and cable type displayed are correct. You can change these settings in the SETUP mode.
  • Remove the terminator from the near end of the coaxial cabling. Use the RJ45 to BNC adapter to connect the cable to the test tool.
