J/E-CX-TBT-01

Installation

Install the Coax Cable

1.Locate or build 10Base-2 compliant coax cable with female, BNC connectors installed at both ends.

2.Connect the BNC cable connector at one end of the cable to the BNC port on the media converter.

3.Connect the BNC cable connector at the other end of the cable to the BNC port on the 10Base-2 compliant device.

CAUTION: Ensure that the 10Base-2 coax cables are terminated properly at both ends. In a coax thinnet installation, the first and last device in a daisy-chain must be terminated using a 50 Ω terminator. Also, ensure that the 10Base-2 segment is grounded to earth ground at a single point. Failure to observe this caution will cause data transfer to fail.

Install the 10Base-T Cable

CAUTION: Connections between the J/E-CX-TBT-01 and a hub, switch, or router require crossover configuration cable. Connections between the J/E-CX-TBT-01 and a terminal, transceiver, or NIC require straight-through configuration cable. (See page 4.) Failure to observe this caution will cause data transfer to fail.

1.Locate or build 10Base-T compliant copper cables with male, RJ-45 connectors installed at both ends.

2.Connect the RJ-45 connector at one end of the cable to the RJ-45 port on the media converter.

3.Connect the RJ-45 connector at the other end of the cable to the RJ-45 port on the 10Base-T compliant device.

J/E-CX-TBT-01

Troubleshooting

If the media converter fails, isolate and correct the fault by determining the answers to the following questions and then taking the indicated action:

1.Is the PWR LED on the media converter illuminated? NO

Is the power cord properly installed in the media converter and at the external power source?

Does the external power source provide power?

Contact Technical Support. US/Canada: 1-800-260-1312, International: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 2.

2.Is the TX LNK/ACT LED on the media converter illuminated OR flashing?

NO

Check twisted-pair 10Base-T cables for proper connection.

Verify that 10Base-T cable is correct (straight-through or crossover) configuration for site installation (see page 4).

Contact Technical Support. US/Canada: 1-800-260-1312, International: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 3.

3.Is the TX LNK/ACT LED on the media converter illuminated BUT NOT flashing?

NO

Disconnect and reconnect the cable to restart the initialization process.

Restart the workstation to restart the initialization process.

Contact Technical Support. US/Canada: 1-800-260-1312, International: 00-1-952-941-7600.

YES

Proceed to step 4.

4.Is the BNC ACT LED on the media converter illuminated? NO

Check 10Base-2 cables for proper connection.

Verify that 10Base-2 cable connections on media converter and on attached device are terminated properly.

Disconnect and reconnect the cable to restart the initialization process.

Restart the workstation to restart the initialization process.
