GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
ANNEX 2 – Installing the Optical Interface
Installing and removing the Fiber I/O interface cartridge requires special care. This annex describes the process.
The FIO-1901-RT-SRP rear panel incorporates a fiber optic interface. The interface consists of two parts:
•
A socket on the rear panel into which an SFP interface module is plugged
•
An SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) module into which the optical fibers are plugged, and which incorporates
the optical/electrical interface
Cautions and Warnings
SFP Transmitter modules contain a class 1 laser, which emits invisible radiation whenever the module is
powered up. Because the SFP is hot-swappable, the module may be powered up as soon as it is installed.
DO NOT LOOK INTO AN OPERATING SFP MODULE’S CONNECTORS, AS EYE DAMAGE MAY RESULT.
The SFP module is sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). It is recommended that you use an ESDpreventive wrist strap grounded to the Densité chassis while handling the SFP module.
SFP modules are subject to wear, and their useful lifetime is reduced each time they are inserted or removed.
Do not remove them more often than is absolutely necessary.
Never remove or install an SFP module with the fiber optic cables connected. Damage to the cables could
result.
The presence of dust and debris can seriously degrade the performance of an optical interface. It is
recommended that you insert a dust plug into the SFP module whenever a fiber optic cable is not connected.
Installing an SFP module
1. Make sure that the bale clasp lever is in the closed position
2. Position the SFP module so that the recessed slot is lined up with the
tab side of the socket.
22 | FIO-1901-RT
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
3. Slide the module straight into the socket, and push gently until it
clicks into position.
Connecting the fiber optic cables
1. Remove the dust plug from the SFP module if present
2. Verify that both the exposed end of the optical fiber in the LC connector and the fiber stub within the SFP
module are clean
• Carefully remove any debris if necessary – see the note below.
3. Plug the LC-terminated fiber optic cable into the SFP module
Keep the connection clean!
The physical interface between two optical fibers is the critical point in a fiber system. The two fibers must
be accurately aligned – that’s the job of the connector plugs and bulkheads – and be in intimate contact
with no obstructions. That’s the job of the user. The small size of the fiber, and the even smaller size of
the fiber core, means that even common dust particles can seriously impair the transfer of light from one
fiber to another.
There are a variety of cleaning solutions available to help the fiber user maintain good fiber network
performance. For best results, it should be possible for the user to perform a visual inspection of the fiber
ends to verify cleanliness.
Miranda strongly urges all users to select a cleaning method that meets their needs, and to use it
rigorously and consistently.
A few tips:
• Always use a dust plug in an empty fiber receptacle, to keep airborne particles from settling on the
fiber end
• Keep your dust plugs clean – a sealed container is a must.
• Always follow the instructions carefully when cleaning – abrasions on the fiber ends can degrade
system performance significantly
• A visual inspection will ensure that particles and liquid residue have been removed
• If it’s still dirty, clean it again.
FIO-1901-RT | 23
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
Removing the fiber optic cables
1. Grasp the LC fiber optic connector that is plugged into the SFP module, and pull it straight out to disengage
the optical fiber from the SFP.
•
Never pull the fiber optic cable itself, as catastrophic damage may occur.
2. Insert a dust plug into the SFP module.
Removing the SFP module
1. Move the bale clasp lever to the open position.
2. Grasp the SFP module between your thumb and forefinger, and
pull it straight out of the slot.
• Do NOT pull on the bale clasp lever to remove the module, as
it is easily damaged
• You may find that you need to wiggle the module, or perhaps
push it into the slot a bit, before it will release and slide out.
3. Insert a dust plug into the SFP module.
