Which wires does the Alien Crosstalk Module use? DTX Alien Crosstalk

The modules play an important role in synchronizing the main and remote units. The modules use wires 1 and 2 for communication - as shown below:

Connecting Main and Remote Units



If not present or if there is an open/short circuit on this pair, the DTX Main and Remote will not communicate with each other and you will be presented with the message:

No Remote Connected Message

You can check the integrity of your patch cord used here by connecting the DTX-CHA001A channel adapters to your DTX Main and Remote units. Rotate the dial on the DTX to SINGLE TEST and run the Wire Map test.
