SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE HSIM-FE6 GIGABIT ETHERNET MODULES USE
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS. READ THE FOLLOWING
SAFETY INFORMATION BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING
THESE ADAPTERS.
The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This
control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and
does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 laser transceivers comply with the following safety
standards:
• 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
• IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
• CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1
accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered
hazardous.
SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of
radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6 dBm or 55 x 10-6 watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the
optical port. The maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is
0.8 W cm-2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr-1.
Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view
laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must be
removed from the network adapter.

Chapter 2: Installation
2.4.1
Connecting a Fiber Optic Segment to the FEPIM
Cabletron Systems offers fiber optic cables that use SC style connectors
which are keyed to ensure proper crossover of the transmit and receive
fibers.
NOTES
An odd number of crossovers (preferably one) must be
maintained between like devices so that the transmit port of
one device is connected to the receive port of the other device
and vice versa.
If the fiber optic cable being used has SC style connectors that
do not resemble MIC style connectors, or has SC connectors
on one end and a different type on the other, such as ST
connectors, ensure that the proper crossover occurs.
1. Remove the protective covers from the fiber optic ports and from the
ends of the connectors.
TIP
!
CAUTION
Leave the protective covers in place when the connectors are
not in use to prevent contamination.
Certain FEPIMs use Class 1 lasers. Do not use optical
instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical
instruments to view laser output increases eye hazard. When
viewing the output optical port, power must be removed from
the network adapter.
Do not touch the ends of the fiber optic strands, and do not let
the ends come in contact with dust, dirt, or other contaminants.
Contamination of the ends causes problems in data
transmissions. If the ends become contaminated, blow the
surfaces clean with a canned duster. A fiber port cleaning swab
saturated with optical-grade isopropyl alcohol may also be used
to clean the ends.
2. Insert one end of the SC connector into the FEPIM.
3. At the other end of the fiber optic cable, attach the SC connector to the
other device.

4. Verify that a link exists by checking that the port receive LED is ON
(flashing amber, blinking green, or solid green). If the receive LED is
OFF and the transmit LED is not blinking amber, perform the
following steps until it is ON:
a. Check that the power is turned on for the device at the other end of
the link.
b. Verify proper crossover of fiber strands between the port on the
HSIM-FE6 and the fiber optic device at the other end of the fiber
optic link segment.
c. Verify that the fiber connection meets the dB loss specifications
outlined in Appendix B.
If a link has not been established, refer to Chapter 3, LANVIEW LEDs,
before contacting the Cabletron Systems Global Call Center. Refer to
Section 1.5 for details.
2.4.2
Connecting a Twisted Pair Segment
to the FE-100TX
An FE-100TX has an internal crossover switch. When connecting a
workstation, use a straight-through cable and set the FEPIM crossover
switch shown in Figure 2-5 to the crossed over position marked with X.
When connecting networking devices, such as another bridge, repeater, or
router, use a straight-through cable and set the FEPIM crossover switch
shown in Figure 2-5 to the straight-through position, marked with =.
