Figure 2-11. Test Panel Connectors for MS2723B and MS2724B External Power The external power connector is used to power the unit and for battery charging. Input is 12 VDC to 15 VDC at up to 5.0 A. A green flashing indicator light near the power switch shows that the instrument battery is being charged by the external charging unit. The indicator is steadily illuminated when the battery is fully charged. When using the AC-DC Adapter, always use a three-wire power cable that is connected to a three-wire power line outlet. If power is supplied without grounding the equipment in this manner, then the user is at risk of receiving a severe or fatal electric shock.

Warning

LAN Connection The RJ-45 connector is used to connect the Spectrum Master to a local area network. Integrated into this connector are two LEDs. The amber LED shows the presence of a 10 Mbit/s LAN connection when on, and a 100 Mbit/s LAN connection when off. The green LED flashes to show that LAN traffic is present. For additional information about the LAN connection, Ethernet connection, and DHCP, refer to Appendix C, “Ethernet Configuration”.

Test Panel Connectors USB Interface – Type Mini-B The USB 2.0 interface can be used to connect the MS272xB Spectrum Master directly to a PC. The first time the MS272xB is connected to a PC, the normal USB device detection by the computer operating system will take place. The CD-ROM that shipped with the instrument contains a driver for Windows XP that is installed when Master Software Tools is installed. Drivers are not available for earlier versions of the Windows operating system. During the driver installation process, place the CD-ROM in the computer drive and specify that the installation wizard should search the CD-ROM for the driver. Note For proper detection, Master Software Tools should be installed on the PC prior to connecting the Spectrum Master to the USB port.

USB Interface – Type A The MS272xB Spectrum Master can also be a USB Host and allow various USB Flash Memory devices to be connected to the instrument for storing measurements, setups, and files. Headset Jack The headset jack provides audio output from the built-in AM/FM/SSB demodulator for testing and troubleshooting wireless communication systems. The jack accepts a 2.5 mm 3-wire miniature phone plug such as those commonly used with cellular telephones. Ext Trigger In A TTL signal that is applied to the External Trigger female BNC input connector causes a single sweep to occur. In the Spectrum Analyzer mode, it is used in zero span, and triggering occurs on the rising edge of the signal. After the sweep is complete, the resultant trace is displayed until the next trigger signal arrives. Ext Ref In The External Reference In port is a BNC female connector that provides for input of an external frequency reference. Press the Ext Ref Freq submenu key (in the System menu) to select the frequency of the external reference from the list that is presented. Valid frequencies are 1 MHZ, 1.2288 MHz, 1.544 MHz, 2.048 MHz, 2.4576 MHz, 4.8 MHz, 4.9152 MHz, 5 MHz, 9.8304 MHz, 10 MHz, 13 MHz and 19.6608 MHz at amplitude from –10 dBm to +10 dBm.

then it may end up with the same address. Most networks include a DHCP server to manage IP addresses. the IP address that it was using becomes available to lease to the next unit that requests an IP address. It is a protocol that allows a server to dynamically assign IP addresses to devices that are connected to the network. so if the device is connected again reasonably soon. a default gateway is also identified. no setup is required to lease and use a dynamic IP address. Normally. it will always remain the same. some amount of lag time is present on the DHCP server end. K C-5 . or when switching from manual to DHCP Note When a DHCP server is not available. the IP address in use may change from use to use. When using a static IP address on an established network. and care must be taken to not conflict with other equipment on the network. The DHCP server hands out IP addresses on a first come. then type in the Static IP address so that the Static IP address and Default Gateway are the same number. As soon as the device is disconnected from the network. Randomly choosing a Static IP address on an established network may result in duplicate IP addresses or other conflicts. If the default gateway is unknown. Three parameters must be set prior to using a Static IP address: IP Address This is the Static IP address on the network. In a dynamic IP operation. a Static IP address can be used. The MS272xB must be connected to the network before it is turned on in order for DHCP to function. Default Gateway Often when a static IP address is assigned. Subnet Mask This parameter is usually extracted from the Static IP address based on the class of the address and determines the destination of any broadcast messages that might be sent from the instrument. first served basis. The subnet mask may also be provided with the Static IP address.DHCP C-3 DHCP DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Key elements of the DHCP lease are performed only during the instrument startup operations. Spectrum Master UG PN: 10580-00175 Rev. When using DHCP. A Static IP address is a fixed address. After being set. DHCP is the preferred IP address assignment mode. It can be customized if necessary. When a DHCP server is available on the network. always request the Static IP address from the network administrator.
