INTRODUCTION

This guide describes the ADC DSX Bay Tracer Illuminator option used in large DSX-1 or DSX-3 environments to enable technicians to locate far end LED tracer lamps more quickly.

The Bay Tracer Illuminator option consists of a stand-alone electronic sensor device that mounts on the top of a DSX-1 or DSX-3 bay, and an inductive pick-up coil that mounts on one or more –48 Vdc power input conductors feeding the bay fuse panel. Power to operate the Bay Tracer Illuminator option is obtained from a branch of the same –48 Vdc central office source that powers the components in the DSX-1 or DSX-3 bay.

An LED mounted on the Bay Tracer Electronic Sensor Device provides a large, bright, easily observable, visual indication whenever an individual jack LED is activated on a DSX bay. This allows a technician to identify the far end bay so that a scan can be performed to identify the specific jack LED that has been activated. The indicator flashes for a nominal period of 70–90 seconds following jack activation to allow sufficient time to scan a 6 K 25 bay environment. After the 70–90 second flashing cycle, the LED on the Bay Tracer Electronic Sensor Device is extinguished and reset in preparation for the next tracer event. The individual DSX jack LED lit by the activation flashes for 30 seconds and stays lit in a steady on state until a switch deactivation occurs. Individual jack LEDs are not affected by Bay Tracer Illuminator operation.

Admonishments

Important safety admonishments are used throughout this manual to warn of possible hazards to persons or equipment. An admonishment identifies a possible hazard and then explains what may happen if the hazard is not avoided. The admonishments — in the form of Dangers, Warnings, and Cautions — must be followed at all times. These warnings are flagged by use of the triangular alert icon (seen below), and are listed in descending order of severity of injury or damage and likelihood of occurrence.

Danger: Danger is used to indicate the presence of a hazard that will cause severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage if the hazard is not avoided.

Warning: Warning is used to indicate the presence of a hazard that can cause severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage if the hazard is not avoided.

Caution: Caution is used to indicate the presence of a hazard that will or can cause minor personal injury or property damage if the hazard is not avoided.

Certification

The product described in this manual has been tested and found to comply with the requirements of UL 1863 and CSA C22.2 No. 225.

1 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Electronic circuitry in the Bay Tracer sensor checks for a change in current on one or more

–48 Vdc power conductors on the DSX-1 or DSX-3 fuse panel caused by an individual jack insertion on the far end bay and uses this change to activate an LED. The change in current is detected by a clamp-on inductive pick-up coil encircling the –48 Vdc power conductor(s) attached to the DSX fuse panel of the device being monitored. A two-conductor 8-foot (20.32 cm) trailing sensor cable attached to the inductive pick-up coil is used to transmit a signal to the sensor. A customer supplied two-conductor (–48 Vdc and battery return) power cable is used to transmit power from the fuse panel on the back of the DSX-1 or DSX-3 bay to the sensor.
