XLR Gen 2 Tester
XLR Gen 2 Tester works by attaching the female power connector and the LED status connector to any cable
(Updated Function Switch)
I = Cable testing
O= Off (Turns the inside 9v battery Off when storing the unit)
II= Polarity testing
Switch in the I position Continuity/Wiring Test:
If both LED’s Red=Pin 2 Amber=Pin 3 are Blinking; the cable has all pins connected.
Switch to the II position to check polarity.
The Amber led should be the only LED on. This is a good cable!
Trouble LED status indicators:
If NO LED’s are blinking, Pin 1 wiring could be bad or Pin 2 and 3 are have no connection or are shorted to Pin 1.
If LED Red and Amber are both ON, it means Pin 2 and 3 are shorted
No Red LED on Pin 2 disconnected or shorted to Pin 1
No Amber LED on Pin 3 disconnected or shorted to Pin 1
If only one of the two LED’s is ON it means that
Red=Pin 2, Amber=Pin 3 is functioning. The color not showing is bad.
Switch needs to be in the II position
Polarity (Is Pin 2 and 3 the same at both ends or are they wired opposite)
Polarity Correct: Only the Amber LED should be ON.
If Red status led is ON, pins 2 and 3 are wired opposite. (Out of Phase)
