Product Description

1 Product Description

Release 2.0.2 is the fifth software release for the IMACS-200 platform. The IMACS-200 offers a sub-set of the traditional IMACS interfaces optimized for use in smaller locations. It also is designed to operate over an extended temperature range such that it can be installed in locations that do not provide a controlled environment. The same "look and feel" of the IMACS has been maintained for this new product offering so that those familiar with the IMACS product line will quickly be able to configure and successfully deploy the IMACS-200. Highlights of this new product offering are outlined below.

Safety Information and Precautions

6.Never attempt to open the case.

7.The AC versions of this product is intended to be used with a three-wire grounding type plug - a plug which has a grounding pin. This is a safety feature. Equipment grounding is vital to ensure safe operation. Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding type plug by modifying the plug or using an adapter.

Prior to installation, use an outlet tester or a voltmeter to check the AC receptacle for the presence of earth ground. If the receptacle is not properly grounded, the installation must not continue until a qualified electrician has corrected the problem. If a three-wire grounding type power source is not available, consult a qualified electrician to determine another method of grounding the equipment.

The DC versions of this product must be connected properly with the -VDC and return (RTN) leads. The grounding screw provided on the right rear of the chassis should be connected to frame ground.

8.Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings must not be blocked or covered.

9.DO NOT allow anything to rest on the power cord and do not locate the product where persons could step on or walk on the power cord.

10.DO NOT attempt to service this product yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

11.Special cables, which may be required by the regulatory inspection authority for the installation site, are the responsibility of the customer.

12.When installed in the final configuration, the product must comply with the applicable Safety Standards and regulatory requirements of the country in which it is installed. If necessary, consult with the appropriate regulatory agencies and inspection authorities to ensure compliance.

13.A rare phenomenon can create a voltage potential between the earth grounds of two or more buildings. If products installed in separate buildings are interconnected, the voltage potential may cause a hazardous condition. Consult a qualified electrical consultant to determine whether or not this phenomenon exists and, if necessary, implement corrective action prior to interconnecting the products.

System Overview

1.1Introduction

This chapter describes chassis used by the IMACS-200.

The IMACS-200 is available with redundant power supplies which operate in a load-sharing mode.

The IMACS-200 chassis is manufactured to be RoHS-compliant.

The IMACS-200 comes “Industrial hardened” to operate under more extreme temperature ranges of -40 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius (-104 degrees Fahrenheit to +158 degrees Fahrenheit).

1.1.1IMACS-200 Chassis

This chassis is designed for table top, wall or rack mounting. All voice and data port access is from the rear of the chassis. The craft interface and alarm indication LEDs are located on the front of the IMACS-200 unit, as seen in Figure 1-1. The IMACS-200 features an on-board ringing generator.

Figure 1-1.IMACS-200 Front Panel

The power supply offering with the IMACS-200 comes with either one or two power supplies. One power supply is capable of handling all the power needs for the unit. When ordering a unit with a redundant power supply, the IMACS-200 operates in a load sharing mode. Should one of the two units fail, the other unit will immediately take over powering of the IMACS-200.

System Overview

Introduction

System Overview

The IMACS-200 offers a range of power input options, which are selected to be the most commonly used input voltages in use by our various customers. They are: -48VDC, 125VDC, 120VAC and 220VAC. The power supply modules are factory installed, and will come with the proper connectors configured for the IMACS-200 powering options you have selected. The power inputs are to the right and left rear of the IMACS-200, and labeled accordingly. In Figure 1-2, the supply inputs are seen on the sides of the rear panel.

Figure 1-2.IMACS-200 Rear Panel

Notes:

1.The two -48VDC and 125VDC feeds are located in the lower-left and lower-right hand corners of the IMACS-200 rear panel. Based on ordering options, these ports will arrive at the customer site with screw-down terminals contained in an accessory bag in the IMACS-200 packaging. For customers who order the single-supply option, the right-hand connector above (nearest the T1/E1 and ground screw) should be used. These three-pin terminals (if so equipped) are labelled left-to-right as NC (No Connection), -48 or 125 as the case may be, and RTN (return).

2.The two 120VAC and 220VAC feeds are located in the upper-left and upper-right hand corners of the IMACS-200 rear panel. Based on ordering options, these ports will arrive at the customer site with AC jacks installed. Simply place a North-American AC power supply cord into the supplied jacks.

3.The IMACS-200 comes with two fan units installed in the unit. These fans will turn on and off automatically as the temperature fluctuates inside the enclosure. These fans are not field serviceable, and will alarm should one of them fail or become obstructed.

A more detailed description of this chassis and its power capabilities is given in chapter 3.

System Installation

2.1Introduction

This chapter provides instructions for unpacking and installing the IMACS-200 chassis at the user site. It also includes other information you will need to properly install the system and refers you to other chapters for additional port-level information.

The system can operate on either AC or DC power when equipped with the proper power supply. Refer to the system specifications section in this manual regarding electrical and environmental requirements.

2.2Chassis Installation

2.2.1Unpacking the Chassis

When you receive your system, unpack the box and check the contents for damage. Inside the box you should have the following three items:

1.The IMACS-200 system

2.A CD ROM with the documentation for the latest or ordered release.

3.A poly bag including the mounting hardware and power cord(s) and or connector(s).

If any of the items above are missing, please contact your sales representative. If anything is damaged, contact the shipping carrier to file a claim. The carrier representative will also tell you how to submit a claim, where to send the unit, and give you any special instructions you may need.

Pack the damaged item in its original packing materials and send it by prepaid freight to the address you received. If the original packing materials are unavailable, pack the unit in a sturdy box and surround it with shock-absorbing material.

2.2.2Pre-Installation Tips

2.2.2.1Installation Checklist

Install your IMACS-200 in the following sequence:

1.Choose a suitable location for the system, as described in this chapter.

2.Unpack and inspect the equipment for damage.

3.Mount the chassis on the desired surface (rack, tabletop, or wall).

4.Install the chassis ground connections.

5.Verify the voltage ratings of all power supplies in the chassis.

6.Verify the fuse ratings of the source power supply.

7.Apply power to the system and verify the power LED states.

After successfully installing the system, configure the system for operation as follows:

1.Connect a VT100-compatible terminal to the Interface port.

2.Log into the system.

3.Set the Alarm Filters.

4.Configure the CPU interface along with the ethernet port if desired.

5.Configure the Voice ports.

6.Configure the Data ports.

7.Configure the WAN ports.

8.Configure all other ports.

2.2.3Choosing a Location for Your System

The IMACS-200 requires a reasonably dust-free, static-free operating environment. Adequate ventilation is also required at the site. Do not install the chassis in direct sunlight, which may increase the system’s operating temperature and affect its operation.

Most of the system plug-in ports have highly sensitive components that could be damaged by static electricity. Whenever you handle any system ports, be sure to observe local electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions.

The system chassis can be installed on an 19-inch or 23-inch equipment rack, or placed on a tabletop or other level surface. First though, make sure the desired surface can support the weight of a chassis.

2-2

System Installation

System Installation

Chassis Installation

Be sure to locate the system near all external equipment to which you will connect it. Cable lengths and physical/electrical characteristics are critical to system operation, especially for data signal interfaces. Generally, higher data rates require shorter cables than lower data rates.

Also, you must use T1-grade cables for all system connections to those networks. For best results, use the cables supplied by your supplier when connecting your system to the associated external facilities. For more information on system cabling, call your supplier.

2.2.3.1Rack Installation Tips

When installing the chassis in a rack, allow at least 2 inches (5.1 cm) of space between the chassis and the equipment in front and behind it for proper ventilation. Use the mounting brackets and attachment hardware furnished with the chassis for this purpose, as outlined in this chapter. If you use other mounting hardware, you may damage the chassis or circuit boards installed in it.

Also route all cables to their destinations through conduits to enhance electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance and facilitate future system troubleshooting. When routing cables, be sure not to obstruct any chassis vents.

2.2.3.2Tabletop Installation Tips

The chassis can be placed on a flat, smooth surface (e.g., a table) that is free of contaminants. This surface should be capable of supporting the chassis.

If you are placing the chassis on a tabletop or other flat surface, be sure to leave enough clearance for air circulation through the system. Make sure the chassis is accessible from both the front and rear.

2.2.4Installing the Chassis

Figure 2-1 shows the front panel of the IMACS-200 chassis. To mount the chassis in a rack, first attach the brackets to the sides of the chassis, using the four associated 10-32 x 1/4” screws. The brackets are reversible for mounting in 19-inch or 23-inch racks (48.2 or 58.4 cm). For a 19-inch rack, attach the long sides of the brackets to the chassis (Figure 2-2 shows the mounting brackets and holes). For a 23-inch rack, attach the short sides of the brackets to the chassis. You can attach the brackets to either position on the side of the chassis. See Figure 2-3 on page 2-5 for a view of the side panel of the IMACS-200.Then, use the four 12-24 x 1/4” screws to mount the bracketed chassis on the rack.

2.4.8Connecting Cables to the ports

Connect system ports to the external equipment, using the proper cables. The ports have various types of connectors for those connections.

Voice ports have a 50-pin Amphenol-type jack. To connect a cable to this type of jack, first plug the male connector of the cable into the jack and push it in all the way. Then, tighten the mounting screws on either end of the cable connector shroud to the IMACS-200 connector.

For modular (RJ-45) jacks, push the cable’s mating plug into the jack until it snaps into place. However, do not try to force the plug into the jack.

For DB-25 jacks, first plug the cable’s mating connector firmly into the jack. Then, thread the screws on either side of the cable connector shroud into the standoffs on either side of the port jacks, and hand-tighten them.

For a list of available cables for the IMACS-200, refer to Table 2 in the Product Description section in the front of this user guide.

Due to the UL regulatory requirements, a mounting stud is required for connection of the AC input earth ground lead to the product chassis. The ground lead must be connected to the chassis using a No. 6 screw, which is included. When grounding the system, use 14 gauge solid wire for a single connection to the provided earth ground screw. The mounting location is labeled with the IEC 417 No. 5019 symbol to identify this as the AC earth ground connection point. This mounting stud is located next to the IEC 320 AC input connector.

2.5.6Chassis with Power Supplies

Figure 2-4 on page 2-5 shows the different power connections on the chassis.

For DC powered systems, the lower right and lower left-hand connections provide for separate, redundant power feeds to the system's pre-installed DC power supplies if so equipped. These two sets of leads provide a connection for separate, redundant power feeds to the system in a load-sharing mode.

Power and Grounding on the IMACS-200

The telecommunications voice signaling ground is a referenced ground connection to the -48VDC power system. Both feeds are referenced to the same place within the IMACS-200. This reference ground can occur at the -48VDC power source. If the ground connection is not maintained, and one side of the connection equipment is not referenced to an earth ground then a floating ground condition can occur causing the voice circuits and the voice signaling to react erratically when either end of the connecting equipment tries to start the circuit.

Sites using only loop start telecommunication circuits (no ground start or E&M signaling) can operate properly without the Telecom Signaling Ground.

When grounding the system, use 14 gauge solid wire for a single connection to the provided earth ground screw.

For AC powered systems, the right and left-hand connections provide for separate, redundant power feeds to the system's pre-installed AC power supplies if so equipped. These two sets of leads provide a connection for separate, redundant power feeds to the system in a load-sharing mode.

2.5.7DC power installation

When wiring to an external power source, such as a battery rack, fuse panel, or circuit breaker, make sure that the correct rating of wire is used. Figure 2-5 illustrates the DC power plug. It is recommended that you use 20 to 18 gauge solid wire.

Figure 2-5. DC Power plug

When the IMACS-200 is ordered with a single-power supply unit, the IMACS-200 will come with the power supply installed on the right-hand rear of the box, closest to the T1/E1 ports and grounding screw. Insert the power plug illustrated above into this right-hand rear connector.

2.5.8AC power installation

If ordered as an AC unit, the IMACS-200 will come pre-assembled with one or two AC connectors on the rear panel, as illustrated in Figure 2-4 on page 2-5. To apply the AC source to the unit, simply use the supplied AC cords included in the packaging to connect the IMACS-200 to the 120VAC or 220VAC source.

2.5.9Powering Up the System

After connecting the chassis to the external power sources and making the proper ground connections, apply power to the chassis. Plug the AC power cord into the associated electrical outlets, or turn on the external DC power supply. Then, observe the following front-panel LEDs:

1.On start-up, all LEDs on the front and rear of the unit cycle through the following color sequence:

Orange, Green, Red and blank.

2.The POWER LED then will turn green on the chassis faceplate. The ACTIVE LED will stay orange until the unit boot cycle is completed, and then turn green.

If no LEDs illuminate, verify that the external power source is providing power to the chassis, and check the connection between that source and the chassis.

Once power is confirmed, the user interface should appear. If not, simply hit carriage return. A window like Figure 2-6 should appear. Type in the user name of “admin”, and the password is “admin”.

Chapter 3

System Configuration and Operation

3.1Basic Operations

This chapter provides instructions for configuring the IMACS-200 for operation after installing it at the equipment site.

Before performing the procedures in this chapter:

1.Be sure your IMACS-200 is installed and powered up.

2.Determine your system’s specific configuration requirements. These depend on your network and customer premises equipment (CPE) interfaces. If this configuration information already exists, obtain it from your system administrator or engineers.

3.Obtain a terminal with VT-100 or VT-102 emulation and an RS-232 to RJ45 serial cable for these procedures. The terminal will be connected directly to the SERIAL port on the front faceplate of your system. This will allow you to access the system and then configure it for operation with your network and CPE.

Refer the Table 2-10 on page 2-11 for pinouts for RS-232 and SERIAL port.

3.2Basic Screen Map and Legend

To make system access, configuration and testing easy, the system presents you with a series of user interface screens. Each screen displays various fields of information, and you can change the data in those fields as required by your system and external interfaces.

3.3System Power-up

The IMACS-200 system will initialize when it is powered up. The normal sequence for initialization and login are described on the following pages.

System Operation

System Configuration and Operation

3.3.1System Boot

Following the application of power, proceed as follows:

1.Be sure your system and local terminal are both powered up.

2.Connect a VT100-compatible terminal to the SERIAL jack on the faceplate of the IMACS-200 front panel. Use a cable with an RJ-45 modular plug on one end for this connection.

3.Configure the terminal to operate at 9.6 kbps, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit.

Should your SERIAL cable be connected prior to powering the IMACS-200, or should power be removed and re-applied to the IMACS-200 during this process, the following screen will appear:

Figure 3-1.Testing and Initialization Screen

4. Press the RETURN key. The Login Screen appears.

The system will display Figure 3-1 above. When testing and initializing is complete the screen will go blank. Press the <Enter> key. The System Login Screen will display, as seen in Figure 3-2

3.3.2Logging Into the System

The first step in starting a user session is to log into the system. You must enter a password that allows you to perform the required tasks on the system. For access levels and user permissions, refer to the section detailing user access in Section 4.3.2 on page 3 of Chapter 4

IMACS-200 General Features.

To log into the system from a local terminal, proceed as follows. To log in from a remote PC refer to details later in this reference manual.

1.Press <Enter>. The Login Screen depicted in Figure 3-2 should appear. If not, press <Enter> again until it does.

2.If the Login Screen does not appear after you press <Enter> several times, check your terminal settings (they should be 9.6 kbps, eight data bits, no parity, and one stop bit).

Figure 3-2.Typical Login Screen

3.Contact your system administrator for your Username and Password. Enter your Username, and press either the <enter> or <tab> key. Then enter your Password and press RETURN to accept the password, which will allow you to configure your system after logging in for the very first time. Refer to Section 4.3.2 on page 3-3 for descriptions of the various user levels.

4.Should you be the system administrator, the default Username is admin and the password is admin. As this constitutes a Superuser access, it is highly recommended that this default password be changed to prevent unauthorized access and enhance the security of the IMACS-200. Refer to Section 4.3.2 on page 3 of Chapter 4 for further information.

System Power-up

System Configuration and Operation

5. Once system access has been obtained, the IMACS 200 will prompt the user to assign WAN and OWAN (if provisoined) port defaults. All four of the WAN or OWAN ports must be set to the same interface type (T1 or E1). This main screen is shown in Figure 3-3. Currently, the OWAN and WAN must be set to the same interface type, either E1 or T1.

Caution should be exercised when choosing the interface type to the WAN and OWAN. All four ports available to the interface must be set to the same type, and changing the type will require a reboot of the system software, dropping all services. Prior to the change, all existing services and WAN / OWAN ports must be in the standby state.

Figure 3-3.WAN and OWAN Interface Un-provisioned Setting

Once the WAN and OWAN Types have been set as either T1 or E1, the user must save the setting. This will prompt a reboot of the IMACS 200, and once completed then the typical login screen will appear, as seen in step 6.

6. The System Main Screen appears. Figure 3-4 shows this screen.

Figure 3-5.Typical port Status Display

From the System Main Screen, you can also access other screens, as shown in Figure 3-5. These screens are described in the following paragraphs.

3.4.3Service Type Main Screens

Each port type in the system has a port Main Screen associated with it. You can go from the System Main Screen to any port Main Screen and configure that device. From a port Main Screen, you can access a Test Screen to perform tests on the port, or (in some cases) a Performance Monitor Screen to view transmission performance data.

Figure 3-5 shows the main screen of the IMACS-200 and reflects the port status. On the FXS line, the user will note the four different ports, and that each port is in a different state. Port one is on the left, and port four is on the right. The figure displays ‘aslt’ as the status of ports one through four, which are: port 1 is in active state. Port two is in standby state, which is to say it is out of service.Port three is in the loopback active state, in other words it is currently involved in a user-initiated maintenance mode. And finally port four is in a test state, which is a user-initiated testing mode. These states are used commonly on all the different service types, and are a quick reference for the status of each port.

Figure 3-6 shows a typical port Main Screen. The highlighted line at the top of every screen is the header. It lists the node name of the system, the current port type and abbreviated description, the port design revision and serial number, and the current system date and time.
