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.

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.

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.

Randomly choosing a Static IP address on an established network may result in duplicate IP addresses or other conflicts. As soon as the device is disconnected from the network. the IP address in use may change from use to use. and care must be taken to not conflict with other equipment on the network.

When using a static IP address on an established network. It can be customized if necessary. Spectrum Master UG PN: 10580-00175 Rev. A Static IP address is a fixed address. the IP address that it was using becomes available to lease to the next unit that requests an IP address. 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. no setup is required to lease and use a dynamic IP address. a default gateway is also identified. Three parameters must be set prior to using a Static IP address: IP Address This is the Static IP address on the network. Default Gateway Often when a static IP address is assigned.
