The PWR or Power LED is on the reverse side from the serial connectors.
If lit, the PWR or Power LED indicates the DeviceMaster PRO has power and completed
the boot cycle.
The PWR or Power LED flashes while booting and it takes approximately 15 seconds for the Bootloader to
complete the cycle. When the Bootloader completes the cycle, the LED has a solid, steady light that
blinks approximately every 10 seconds.
If the LNK/ACT LED is lit, it indicates a working Ethernet connection.
If the red COL LED is lit, there is a network collision.
If the 100 LED is lit, it indicates a working 100 MB Ethernet connection (100 MB network, only).
If the LED is not lit, it indicates a 10 MB Ethernet connection.
The RX (yellow) and TX (green) LEDs function accordingly when the cable is attached properly to a serial device.
After power cycling the DeviceMaster PRO, RX/TX LEDs are off.
The LEDs do not function as described until the port has been opened by an application.
