  • Page 6: Introduction

    Ethernet adapter that delivers up to 1000 Mb/s Ethernet over twisted-pair (copper) cabling. The NC380T adapter has a fully integrated controller capable of auto-negotiating a link at 10, 100, or 1000 Mb/s. The network connection is made through an RJ-45 connector. LED indicators show the speed and activity of the link once it has been established.
  • Page 7: Led Indicators

    LED indicators The NC380T adapter has two auto-negotiating 10/100/1000 RJ-45 ports. LED indicators show link/activity and port speed. LED indicator Status Description LNK/ACT No link to the adapter is established. The adapter is not receiving power or the cable connection is faulty.
  • Page 8: Utp Cat5 Cable

    UTP CAT5 cable The NC380T adapter can use existing UTP CAT5 (or better) cable to deliver Gigabit Ethernet over copper, according to the IEEE 802.3ab specifications. For new installations, CAT5e (enhanced CAT5) cable is recommended. For troubleshooting and other information about cabling, see UTP Cable Specifications (on page 11).

    NOTE: Before removing the cover of your server, refer to the HP documentation for the proper methods for installing a PCI card and avoiding electric shock hazards.
  • Page 10: Installing An Adapter In A Server

    • Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly. Installing an adapter in a server See the HP ProLiant server documentation for additional information on how to safely install a PCI card in the server. CAUTION: If the server is not PCI Hot Plug compliant, power it down and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before removing the server access panel.

  • Page 14: Gigabit Over Copper Pinouts Using Internal Crossover For Rj-45

    Unlike connections in which the crossover function is implemented internally at the hub or switch, the NC380T provides its own automatic crossover function. This means you can wire twisted-pair media straight-through for adapter-to-hub, adapter-to-switch, or adapter-to-adapter connections using the pinouts indicated.
