  • 18. Chapter 2 Installation Installation Instructions2.2 Installation Instructions This section explains the physical installation of a ProView 7000 unit.2.2.1 Power Supply to the Unit To ensure correct and safe operation of the unit, ensure the following: I Ensure that a qualified electrician has installed the main power supply in accordance with power authority regulations. Make sure all powering must be wired with an earth leakage, according to local regulations. I When the unit is rack-mounted, ensure that the rack is correctly grounded. DANGER: To avoid electrocution, ensure that the rack has been correctly grounded before switching on the ProView 7000 device. When removing the unit, remove the grounded connection only after the unit is switched off and unplugged.2.2.2 Installing the Unit in a Rack CAUTION: For rack installation, ensure that a designated 19" rack is fully prepared for installation. Ensure sufficient space behind the rack for easy access for installation and maintenance. Rack mounting requires the use of special “L” shape slides, available from M The amount of units installed in a fr rack is a function of the units’ power consumption and heat dissipation. Address Mfr support for calculating the maximum load on the rack. The following sections detail the installation of a ProView 7000 unit in a 19" rack using the dedicated mounting slides.2.2.2.1 Fitting the Brackets To fit the brackets: 1. Fit a pair of brackets to both side rails of the rack housing with two flatwasher screws on each side. Use the two front holes at the sides of the housing to attach the brackets. (Complementing nuts are already installed on the inner side of the holes, the four screws required are not included in the supplied kit). 2. Ensure proper grounding of the rack assembly to prevent potential electrical problems.2.2.2.2 Installing the “L” Shape Slides The ProView 7000 uses forced air ventilation, evacuating the air toward the left side panel (left wall) of the 19”” rack. To ensure smooth airflow, special ““L”” shape slides are provided for rack mounting. To fit the ““L”” shape slides: 1. Ensure that the brackets are fastened with appropriate screws to each side of the chassis’’ rails. 2.

Chapter 2 Installation Installation Instructions2.2.2.3 Mounting ProView 7000 units in the 19" Rack DANGER: To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety. I This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack. I If the rack will hold a number of units, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack. I If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack. ATTENTION: Pour éviter toute blessure corporelle pendant les opérations de montage ou de réparation de cette unité en casier, il convient de prendre des précautions spéciales afin de maintenir la stabilité du système. Les directives ci-dessous sont destinées à assurer la protection du personnel. I Si cette unité constitue la seule unité montée en casier, elle doit être placée dans le bas. I Si cette unité est montée dans un casier partiellement rempli, charger le casier de bas en haut en plaçant l’’élément le plus lourd dans le bas. I Si le casier est équipé de dispositifs stabilisateurs, installer les stabilisateurs avant de monter ou de réparer lunité en casier. WARNUNG: Zur Vermeidung von Körperverletzung beim Anbringen oder Warten dieser Einheit in einem Gestell müssen sie besondere Vorkehrungen treffen, um sicherzustellen, daß das System stabil bleibt. Die folgenden Richtlinien sollen zur Gewährleistung Ihrer Sicherheit dienen. I Wenn diese Einheit die einzige im Gestell ist, sollte sie unten im Gestell angebracht werden. I Bei Anbringung dieser Einheit in einem zum Teil gefüllten Gestell ist das Gestell von unten nach oben zu laden, wobei das schwerste Bauteil unten im Gestell anzubringen ist. I Wird das Gestell mit Stabilisierungszubehör geliefert, sind zuerst die Stabilisatoren zu installieren, bevor sie die Einheit im Gestell anbringen oder sie warten. CAUTION: Ensure that a sufficient amount of airflow enters the ProView 7000 from the left end (from the front panel point of view) . Consider if other devices in the rack use airflow in the opposite direction. Consider that the amount of units installed per rack is a function of power requirements and heat dissipation. Address Mfr support for calculating the maximum load on the rack. To mount the 19"/42U rack with the ProView 7000 units: 1. Mount ProView 7000 units in groups of no more than five units on each pair of brackets. 2. Leave one-unit-space between each group of five units.2.2.3 Insertion of the DVB-CI Module (PCMCIA) Figure 2––1 illustrates the ProView 7000 with the DVB-CI module (PCMCIA card) and the Smart Card used to decrypt the incoming signal. The ProView 7000 is provided with two PCMCIA slots for up to two DVB-CI modules. Insert the PCMCIA card firmly into one of the two slots to ensure contact. Each DVB-CI module accommodates one Smart Card, inserted with the UP arrow pointing upwards and forwards. 9 PVR-7K v.2.2, Rev. D
  • 20. Chapter 2 Installation Installation Instructions CAUTION: Do not remove or insert the DVB-CI module or the Smart Card while the ProView 7000 is powering up or initializing. Figure 2––1: ProView 7000 with the DVB-CI module and Smart Card When installed, the card is detected automatically by the ProView 7000 and enabled if the following conditions are met: I The installed card must be EN50221 compatible I Services have been selected I Using a valid card licensing2.2.4 Electrical Power Connection The ProView 7000 is powered by an AC power supply. Grounding of the ProView 7000 is provided when the AC power cable is connected to the unit AC connector. Grounding Jackscrew Figure 2–2: AC Connector When the ProView 7000 is rack-mounted, the device’’s grounding jackscrew must be connected to the rack housing, which must be correctly grounded. DANGER: To avoid electrocution, ensure that the rack has been correctly grounded before switching on the unit. When removing the unit, remove the grounding connection only after the unit is switched off and unplugged. Ground the unit to the grounding jackscrew with cable 18AWG. CAUTION: This product relies on the building’s electrical installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that a fuse or circuit breaker no larger than 120 VAC, 20 A U.S. (240 VAC, 20 A international) is used on the phase conductors (all current-carrying conductors). 10 PVR-7K v.2.2, Rev. D
