1. a method of selecting the function of visual part, comprises the steps:

  • Determine the orientation of equipment (102A), described equipment (102A) contains at least one visual part (114A) with selectable punction;

    Select the function of this at least one visual part (114A) based on orientation;

    AndWhen adjacent equipment in rack (402) and when the connector of adjacent equipment is connected to each corresponding connectors of described rack (402), makes signal (110) indicate the opposed orientation of adjacent equipment to the unit control logical circuit (108A) being connected with described at least one visual part (114A) with contrary arranged in orientation.2. the method for claim 1, also comprises the steps;

    to show a group in the icon (112A, 116A) of two groups of opposite orientation, to indicate this at least one visual part (114A) based on orientation.3. the method for claim 1, wherein;

    the step of determining the orientation of equipment (102A) comprises the measurable parameter of surveying indicating equipment (102A) orientation.4. the method for claim 1, wherein;

    the manual position of the switch of step inclusion test of determining the orientation of equipment (102A).5. the method for claim 1, wherein;

    the step of determining the orientation of equipment (102A) comprises the position of definite equipment (102A) in rack (402).6. the equipment with the visual part of tool selectable punction (102A), comprising;

    Multiple visual parts (114A), each visual part is relevant at least one function of equipment (102A);

    Unit control logical circuit (108A), it is connected with described multiple visual parts (114A), and it is configured to select based on the orientation of equipment (102A) function of at least one visual part in described multiple visual part (114A);

    AndThe orientation detector (106A) being connected with unit control logical circuit (108A), when adjacent equipment is with contrary arranged in orientation in rack (402) and when the connector of adjacent equipment is connected to each corresponding connectors of rack (402), described orientation detector (106A) uses signal (110) to indicate the opposed orientation of adjacent equipment to described unit control logical circuit (108A).7. equipment as claimed in claim 6 (102A), also comprises the icon (112A, 116A) of two groups of opposite orientation, in order to indicate the function relevant to each visual part (114A).8. equipment as claimed in claim 7 (102A), also comprises icon control logic circuit (107A), and it is configured to illuminate a group in two group icons (112A, 116A) based on the orientation of equipment (102A).
