ALIF: Identifying a Transmitter or Receiver


To help locate a particular transmitter or receiver in a 19" rack or enclosure that contains other endpoints (Transmitter or Receiver), the endpoints can be instructed to identify themselves by flashing one or more of its LED's.

This can be achieved using one of two methods, using the AIM Manager or via the web interface on the endpoint itself.

Using an AIM

  • On the AIM Manager's web interface, in the Transmitters and Receivers tabs, you will see a yellow lightbulb icon, used to identify the endpoint.

  • If you press the Identity button once, it will perform a short identification sequence where the icon and the endpoint will blink for five seconds.
  • If you press it again whilst it is still flashing, it will perform a long identification sequence.
    • The icon and endpoint will blink for an hour. Note, if you reload the page, the lightbulb icon will stop blinking, however, the endpoint will continue to identify itself.
    • To stop the endpoint identifying itself, press the Identity button again.


Using the Endpoints Web Interface

  • Each endpoint has its own web interface, from which you are able to choose to either have the endpoint blink for five seconds (short) or an hour (long) on the System Configuration page.
