Using the DSX-PLA001 Universal Adapter with the DSX-8000

The DSX-PLA001 permanent link adapter, commonly referred to as the Universal Permanent Link Adapter for its ability to accept different Personality Modules, is designed to work either with itself or with the DSX-PLA004. 




Currently the DSX-PLA001 is not compatible with the DSX-PLA804 that comes with the DSX-8000. If you try to run a test with the 001 on one end of a link and the 804 on the other end of a link you will receive this error message:





If you need to use the DSX-PLA001 with a DSX-8000, you will need to use either another DSX-PLA001 on the other end or a DSX-PLA004 to perform accurate test.
