  • SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DO NOT attempt to install equipment if you do not have installation experience. Tadiran Microwave Networks is not liable for personal injury caused by improper installation, nor does the equipment warranty cover equipment damaged by im- proper installation. PERSONAL SAFETY For your own safety, please observe the following precautions when working with microwave equipment. The standard 48-Vdc supply voltage is not normally considered life-threatening, however, your physical reaction to accidental contact with that voltage could cause injury. EQUIPMENT SAFETY Remove the power-supply input fuse from the front-panel before removing any other cable, or cover. A replacement fuse must have the same voltage and amper- age rating as the original fuse as specified in this handbook. After installation, be sure to secure the any cables to a structure to prevent tripping. Be sure to follow all applicable building, electrical, and fire codes. Consider con- duit installation as a minimum. SAFETY CONVENTIONS The following caution and warning symbols are used in this booklet: CAUTION indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided, could result in minor or moderate injury. Caution may also be used to indicate unsafe practices or risks of property damage. CAUTION WARNING indicates a potential hazardous situation that, if not avoided, could result WARNING in death or serious injury.

  • Network Loop Switch 1. Product Description The Network Loop Switch (NLS) lets customers with networks of CM microwave radios protect the non-telco channels of those radios. Non-telco channels include network management data, orderwire, and digital clear channels. The NLS can be configured to operate in one of two modes: network mode or DCC mode. Network mode protects network management data as well as orderwire and the digital clear channels. DCC mode protects the orderwire and the digital clear channels. In network mode, radios within the loop must use an omni-directional (4-port) Network Management Unit (NMU) module. Network traffic is unidirectional on radios that have an NMU with the three-port bridge. Depending on a radio’s configuration, master or slave, the NMU routes network traffic differently from its east and west ports. This arrangement does not work well for looped networks since each terminal must dynamically change its configuration to match condition changes of the loop (open or closed). The omni-directional NMU eliminates the master-slave design for one suitable to looped network architecture. The DCC mode works for radio networks that do not use the NMU. This mode protects one digital clear channel (DCC) and the orderwire while one DCC becomes the loop control line. The control line is the port that senses path activity as the next paragraph describes. The Network Loop Switch operates as a path detection device and switching point. Each unit has separate ports for the east and west radio terminals. Detection of identical network activity on both network ports indicates a looped path. When the NLS detects no activity on one port it closes the loop to create a path around a failed link. When the NLS does not detect activity on either side it generates its own pulse on the path to check the path condition.

  • Network Loop Switch Product Description The NLS closes normally-open (NO) relays to connect east to west communications paths of the orderwire and data channels and bridges the line drivers and receivers on the network data channel should the data stop. The Network Loop Switch fits into one rack space (1RU, 1.75 inch) of a telco equipment rack with front-panel access to all connections. Two connections for each data type are provided. The voice frequency (VF) orderwire connects on four-pin RJ-11 jacks. The RS-422 digital clear channel (DCC, 19.2-kbps asynchronous data) also connects on four-pin RJ-11 jacks. In the DCC mode, DCC number 1 connects to the RS-232 connectors (see Figure 7). NMS data connects on the RS-485 or RS-232 connectors. RS-485 connects with the standard RS-485 cable assembly; that is RJ-12 modular jacks and 4- or 6-wire twisted pair. RS-232 network communication interfaces with DB-9 connectors and a 1-to-1 serial cable. DC power, ±20 to 60 Vdc, connects through two-pin power plugs. Table-A.

  • Tadiran Microwave Networks Application 2. Application The following illustration shows the NLS in a network. The NLS is required at a single point in each loop and supports multiple loops of a branch. Each unit must have a unique NLS address within the same branch. Each branch can have no more than 250 network elements, and each loop can be no larger than 100 terminals. The Network Loop Switch introduces no delay through its voice and data channel and 11 milliseconds delay through the network/control ports.

  • Network Loop Switch Installation 3. Installation First decide whether the NLS will operate in Network mode or DCC mode. In Network mode, the Network Loop Switch protects network data on radios that use the omni-directional network management unit (NMU) and software. Upgrade also includes a reworked ACU and a reworked SCU. Figure 5 shows an example network and the installations involved at its sites. Note: Hardware rework is not a field procedure. Return boards that need rework to the depot. NMU Software change. Software and hardware changes. OMC NLS Figure 4. Types of Installations In the DCC mode—that is, the radios do not use the NMU—connect the radio DCC 1 port as Figure 7 shows. The radio must have a service channel unit (SCU). Set the DCC switch (S1) of the radio SCU as Table C lists. Connect DCC 2 as Figure 9 shows. Table C.

  • Tadiran Microwave Networks Installation 3.1. ESD Notice Observe all electrostatic discharge precautions. Do all bench work at static-safe workbenches. Don a wrist strap and connect its ground clip or plug to a grounded surface CAUTION when working on the Network Loop Switch. 3.2. Unpacking Upon receipt, and before unpacking anything, inspect the container and report any damage to the delivering carrier. Forward a copy of any damage claim to Tadiran Microwave Networks, Customer Service (281-263-6501). Unpack the equipment carefully to avoid damage. Check the packing material to ensure no parts or accessories remain in the shipping container. Inspect the unit for damage before discarding the shipping containers or packing material, you must show this to the carrier when filing a damage claim. As with damage noted before unpacking, send a copy of the claim to Customer Service. 3.3. Address and Communications Setup If several NLS units are needed in a network branch, set S1on the Network Loop card (Table B, page 3 and Figure 2, page 4) so each NLS address is unique. The decimal value created by the rocker positions create the address. Rocker 1 sets the least significant bit so, for example, rockers 1, 2, and 3 set to 1 is address 7. Set the baud rates on the NMS channels using S2. Default settings are rockers 1 to 8 off (decimal 0––19.2 kbaud, 8 bits, odd parity, and one stop bit). Setting S2 rocker 1 on and rockers 2 to 8 off, decimal 1, results in 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit. 3.4. Mounting Mount the Network Loop Switch in a relay rack no further than 30.48 meters (100 feet) from its associated radios. The Network (P4) connection uses the RS-485 standard tested to 30.48 meters (100 feet). 3.5. Cabling This section first describes how to connect DC power to the Network Loop Switch (NLS). And since the NLS monitors data from either the RS-485 or the RS-232 radio port, sections 3.4.2 and 3.4.3 discuss how to connect data. 8860009-00 061799 Page 7

Pin 1 on the modular jacks of the NLS is on the left. Connect one end of the cable to the RS485 IN port of the interface.

  • Tadiran Microwave Networks Installation 3.5.5. To Verify Your Installation Testing the NLS in a network requires two people: one person at a local site and one at a remote location—for this discussion local site is the location of observation. Do this test, if possible, during idle or slow traffic periods. To test an existing looped configuration with live data: · Pull the SCU at the remote site. On systems using the orderwire function, pull the SCU from the terminal that does not have the orderwire card. If DCC and orderwire communication is not affected so the NLS works. · Pull the ACU card, which includes the NMU daughter card. The Telescan NMS should only lose communication to the terminal without the ACU so the NLS works. The same functions can also be verified by pulling the cables connecting the two terminals at the remote site to verify NMS, DCC, and orderwire functions. To test the NLS on an inactive network: · Pull the Multiplexer at one remote terminal, which effectively breaks all path communication. In a hot-standby radio pull both A- and B-side multiplexers. Any NMS, DCC, orderwire and customer payload proceeds through the network so the NLS works 8860009-00 061799 Page 11
