The Patch App & Go T1 has two modes for testing you data cabling system, Multiple Test & Quick Test.
Multiple Test Mode should be selected if you want to carry out multiple tests and save the results. When testing is complete, you can view all results on a single report and email it to yourself for printing at a later stage. (This is useful should you wish to submit the report to your client at completion of your installation).
Quick Test Mode allows you to test a single outlet or continuously test multiple outlets without having to save the results. This option is suitable if you do not require a test report at completion and just want to carry out your testing quickly.
We recommend the following method when using the Patch App & Go T1 for testing.

- Take your T1 Dongle and insert the RJ45 Plug into the first wall socket that you want to test
- Press “Test” and wait for the result to be displayed on your phone
- if you get a “Pass”, press “Save & Test the next port”
- if you get a “Fail”, you can either “Fix Now & Test Again” or Save & Test Next Port”
After you have tested all ports, you can view your results, address any failed ports, view the PDF Test Report & email it to yourself or your customer.
Each Smart Remote Plug is programmed and labeled with its own unique number 1-6. Additional Smart Remote Plugs are available to purchase in packs of 6. They can be programmed and labeled with subsequent numbers. 7-12, 13-18, 19-24 and so on.
