WireXpert 4500

The Local and Remote units display a different size of memory.

Once the Local and the Remote units are connected, the display of memory size will
be synchronized and both units will display the same, correct value.
The WireXpert is switched off and the On/Off button is illuminated in red.

The device is connected to a power adapter and is being recharged.

The On/Off button is illuminated in green.

The device is switched on and ready for testing.

The WireXpert is switched on and the ON/OFF button is illuminated in green and

The device is switched on/ready for testing and is being recharged.

The WireXpert is switched off and the On/Off button is flashing red.

There is a problem with the battery or a defect. Remove the battery and clean the
contacts. Disconnect the power adapter and continue your work as usual, until the
battery is completely discharged. Then fully recharge the device. If the problem
persists replace the battery with a new one or with the battery of another WireXpert.
If the problem still persists please contact our technical support.
Can I save custom limits in my WireXpert?

Yes, this is possible from software version 4.7. An instruction on this providing an
example can be obtained from our technical support.
Why cant I save the test results on a USB flash drive?

Check if you have inserted the flash drive into the main LOCAL unit. Your test
results will only be saved in the main unit and data transfer is only possible from the
main unit.
The included headsets do not work.

The talkset feature is enabled from version 4.5.1, please check your software version
and update to the latest software version, if appropriate.
The included headsets do not work with the current software.

Unfortunately, the sticker (ON/OFF) was accidentally reversed on some talksets, so

these talksets will only work in the OFF position.
How do I use the talkset feature?

Follow the steps below to use the talkset feature:

1. Connect the included talkset headphones via the jack plug to the Local and
Remote units.
2. Make sure that the Local and Remote units are connected with each other and the
red talkset icon is displayed in the top bar of the units.
3. Check the volume settings and that the headsets are also activated on the two
4. Touch the talkset icon in the top bar to connect the call. The units ring and after 3
seconds the call is picked up automatically. The talkset icon is green and a
conversation is now possible.
5. To hang up touch the green talkset icon

TIP: If the icon is gray and the receiver is on-hook there is no connection between
the Local and Remote units. It is not possible to make a conversation. Check the
connection and insert the adapter once more.
Why is my measurement device equipped with an additional Ethernet port?

This port currently serves to synchronize the units in AXT (Alien Crosstalk)
measurements. When connecting two Local units, it is possible to coordinate the test
sequence. Further features may possibly be added in future firmware versions.
Why does the delivery include two different adapter types?

By default the WireXpert comes with two adapter types to meet the requirements of
Channel and Permanent Link measurements compliant for example with ISO/IEC
11801, CENELEC EN 50173-1, or EIA/TIA 568-C standards. Depending on which
copper cabling you want to measure, you need the appropriate pair of adapters.

- Use the CAT 6A Channel adapter with the RJ45 interface if you want to perform a
Channel measurement.
Please bear in mind when performing a Channel test the patch cords are part of the
tested cabling and have to stay in the cabling link after the measurement!
- Use the CAT 6A Permanent Link adapter with the TERA interface if you want to
perform a Permanent Link measurement.
Please bear in mind that in a Permanent Link test the patch cords are excluded from
the measurement!
How often do I have to perform a Set Reference?

A set reference should be performed in the following situations:

- When exchanging the adapters

- In case of strongly varying ambient conditions
My WireXpert displays the following message Set reference required. What is this
and how do I perform a Set Reference?

A set reference is conducted to compensate for the effects of ambient conditions in

the Local and Remote units. External effects, as for instance ambient temperature,
can affect measurement results, therefore a reference setting of the Local and
Remote units is necessary. This will ensure maximum measurement accuracy of the
WireXpert. Follow these steps:

1. A set reference depends on the adapter type used. Use the included CAT 6A
Channel adapter or CAT 6A Link adapter for your measurement and proceed as
2. Connect a CAT 6A Channel adapter and a CAT 6A Link adapter to the Local and
Remote units. It does not matter which adapter is connected to which unit.
3. Connect the Local and Remote units via one of the included Permanent Link test
Navigate to TOOLS -> Set Reference on the Local unit.
4. Start the reference setting. Wait until this procedure has been completed and an
audible signal sounds, then you can continue and start your measurements.
How will I know that my Permanent Link test cords are worn out?

Principally, this can be identified by the following features:

1. Broken connector latch (RJ45/TERA)

2. Opens
3. Strong blackening of the contacts or the screen
4. Broken connectors (RJ45/TERA)
5. Contours of the RJ45 connectors at shield edges that are angular and sharp.
6. Highly varying measurement values

The utilization of worn-out test cords deteriorate the accuracy and reliability of a
measurement! Make sure only to use intact cables. A missing latch on the RJ45
connector will reduce stability and contact pressure which also will affect test

TIP: Set up a reference link to verify the measurement values for reliability. In case of
a variability of several dB, the device needs to be serviced (factory calibration,
replacement of wear parts, etc.).
Can I use the WireXpert when the power adapter is connected?

Yes, this is possible without any problem.

Why do I permanently get a Fail result although my cabling link is completely o.k.?
Make sure that you have selected the correct limit. The limit value of a higher Class
cannot be reached with components of lower Categories and you will always get a
fail result! Another reason could be that the measurement adapters have not
snapped in properly. There should be a clear clicking sound when placing the
adapter. Remove the adapter and insert it once more.
Can I perform measurements while the WireXpert is being recharged?

Yes, in contrast to many other certifiers, the WireXpert can run tests and be
recharged at the same time. You do not have to wait until the battery is fully
How can I localize faults in my cabling?

To localize cable faults proceed as follows:

1. Perform an autotest or a wiremap test from the TOOLS menu. The distance to the
cable fault will be displayed for a short of two or more wires and for opens. Any
reverses/miswires cannot be localized.

To localize frequency-dependent faults proceed as follows:

1. Perform an autotest.
2. Select the Locator option
3. Select the desired Locator that matches the failed measurement parameter.
- The X-axis of the graph describes the length of the entire cabling link.
- The Y-axis of the graph describes the relative amplitude of the parameter at a
certain place.
This allows to localize which component causes the failure of the certification. Shift
the highlighted area as you wish to display the exact position.
I have found a reversal of two wires. Why does the WireXpert not show me at which
end of the cabling this is?

None of the cabling testers or certifiers available in the market can do this. There is
not any electrical measurement to localize this cable fault.
