REPORT ALARM: Sammaint: Alarm Grid Activated

This Alarm message is reported at the Datakit® console when the alarm sounds. (Approx. 10 seconds after the first message.)

REPORT ALARM: Sammaint: Alarm generated by TCON or alarm monitor circuit

 

TCONB ( TN1394B or TN1394C) Module
The TCONB module is the controller for the CO MUX/64. The functions of this module are listed below:

  • Acts as an interface between the trunk module and the TERM32 boards.
  • Control of the node, Time Division Multiplexer (TDM), and download buses.
  • Initializes the trunk module
  • Downloads and controls up to 16 processor stations located on the TERM32 Modules.
  • Receives the primary download from the node for downloading to the TERM32 modules.
  • Accumulation and reporting of status data for the CO MUX/64.
  • The TCONB module emulates the node clock, switch and integral control computer functions for the CO MUX/64.

All of the functions listed are transparent to the user. The TCONB module only communicates with the integral control computer and the stations that control the user ports. The TCONB module does not use an I/O distribution board.

TERM32 (UN315) Module
The TERM32 module can interface with terminals, host computers, PCs, or modems. This board may provide 32 serial, asynchronous, full-duplex ports that run at s peeds up to 19.2 Kbps. It may also provide 32 serial, synchronous, full-duplex ports that run at speeds up to 9.6 Kbps. The TERM32 board also supports Autobaud detect.

In the asynchronous mode, the TERM32 module optionally supports XON/XOFF flow control and clear to send and request to send (CTS/RTS) flow control. It supports odd, even and no parity features. In the synchronous Data Carrier Equipment (DCE) mode, the TERM32 generates the transmit and receive clocks, and in the synchronous Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) mode, it accepts synchronized transmit and receive clocks.

There five types of diagnostic loop-around tests provided for this module. These will be discussed later in this document. I/O connections to the TERM32 modules are made through eleven 50-pin connectors on the rear panel of the CO MUX/64. The relationship between the TERM32 modules and I/O connections are shown in the table below.

Trunk Modules

T1-TRUNK (TN1392) Module
The T1-TRUNK module provides long distance high or medium speed, point to point communication from the CO MUX/64 over common carrier equipment to the supporting node. The supporting node utilizes the complementary T1-TRUNK module (TN1015).

This module supports a maximum of 512 virtual circuits, with 504 available for users and 8 for control. Actual virtual circuit capacity is a function of user traffic characteristics and speed of the CO MUX/64 to node connecting link.

The CO MUX/64 T1-TRUNK module does not have a corresponding I/O distribution board but comes equipped with a module to Data Service Unit (DSU) connecting cable that provides a 37 pin RS-449 type receptacle connector labeled J12. RS-422 data and clocking signals are used along with RS-232C control lead signals for this trunk connection.

The recommended equipment to perform the T1 (1.544) DSU function includes:

  • The D/I MUX Multiplexer
  • The Phoenix 1536 single channel multiplexer
  • The SATD4/ESF Modem or equivalent T1 multiplexer

Most applications require the use of a channel service unit (CSU) to provide network protection, automatic loop equalization, and maintenance loop-around testing between DSU and the T1. The T-serv T1 CSU, or equivalent, is the recommended equipment to provide the CSU function.

The CO MUX/64 T1-TRUNK module is always used in conjunction with a node T1-TRUNK module in the supporting node, regardless of the link speed chosen. (1.544/2.048 Mbps or 48/56/64 Kbps)

HS-TRUNK (TN1391) Module
The HS-TRUNK module is installed in the CO MUX/64 to provide limited distance, high speed, point to point communication over a fiber-optic link to support the node. The supporting node uses a complementary node HS-TRUNK module.

This module supports a maximum of 512 virtual circuits, 504 for users and the remaining for control. The high speed link is capable of running at 8 Mbps on the optical fibers up to a maximum distance of three km.

The HS-TRUNK module is a simple state machine, not programmable. There is a CRC check to detect bad frames, which are discarded. Error correction and re-transmission are the responsibility of either the interface modules or the high level protocol involved. The recommended fiber cable is a multimode fiber (62.5/125mm) cable terminated with ST style connectors.

I/O connections are made through the rear panel with access to the CEY1 I/O distribution board.

SAMSL (MC1D090A1B) Module
The SAMSL module is the wire interface at each end of a DDS or analog transmission facility connecting a Datakit® II VCS or BNS-2000 node and a SAM. It supports EIA RS-232C connections at 9.6 or 19.2 Kbps and V.35 connections at up to 56 Kbps. It also provides software for boot-up diagnostics, loop diagnostics and channel selection.

The SAMSL I/O connections include:

  • V.35 - The CEY2 I/O-DB provides one 34 pin, Winchester-type, V.35 DTE receptacle connector accessed from the rear panel. DSUs are required.
  • RS-232C - The CEY3 I/0-DB provides a 25 pin subminiature RS-232C DTE receptacle connector accessed form the rear panel. DSUs are used in this configuration.

SAMDL (MC1D106A1) Module
The SAMDL module is a wire interface at the CO MUX/64 end of a DDS or analog transmission facility. It connects to a SAMML in the node. It supports two EIA RS-232C port connections.

The SAMDL I/O connection is through a CEY4 I/O-DB. It provides one 25-pin subminiature, receptacle connector. It uses an ED5P055-31, G219 cable to convert from a single 25-pin RS-232C plug subminiature to two, 25-pin plug subminiature connectors.

CBM T1-FOI
The CBM T1-FOI is comprised of a TN1015 hardware module/T1 I/O card in the node and a TN1392 T1 Trunk/CBM Optical I/O in the SAM64.

The CBM T1-FOI for Datakit® converts T1 V.35 signals to clocked Fiber Optical signals. This enables the User to run at full E1 speed (2.048) locally for distances up to 3 kilometers. The CBM T1-FOI eliminates the need for expensive fiber trunk interface modules as well as CSU/DSU equipment at either end.

Controls and Indicators
Faceplate controls and indicators are used to monitor and control the CO MUX/64 modules. There are similar faceplates on the TERM32, TCONB and trunk modules. The power supplies have no indicators but are equipped with test points to verify the output voltages.

TERM32 Module
The TERM32 module contains two indicator lights and a trace channel connection.

Power Supplies
The AC and DC power supplies provide no indicators on the faceplates. There are four terminals provided as test points to measure the output voltage for each voltage. Output voltage can be measured using a high impedance DC voltmeter.
