Chapter 1. INTRODUCTION
This chapter provides an overview of the DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator. The
DM240XR will be referred to in this manual as “the DM240XR”, “the modulator”, or “the unit”.
1.1
Description
The New Standard in Digital Modulator Performance
Radyne’s DM240XR family of High-Speed Modulators is the ideal choice to meet the exacting
standards of High Data-Rate Video, Internet and Fiber Restoral Satellite Applications. The
DM240XR offers various options that comply to the international standards, supporting both
DVB-S and DVB-S2 specifications. With a variety of frequency options and Plug-In Data
Interfaces (PIIC), it provides greater flexibility for changing and upgrading the unit the required
application.
The DVB-S Network specification complies with both EN300-421 and EN301-210 ETSI
specifications. The DM240XR supports FEC rates of BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK and 16QAM
applications with symbol rates up to 68 Msps.
The DVB-S2 Network specification complies with the next generation DVB open standard
supported by ETSI EN302-307. At the core of this standard is a powerful Bose-ChaudhuriHocquenghem BCH encoder and concatenated Low-Density Parity Check (LDPC). The DVB-S2
FEC rates supported are BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK and 16APSK with symbol rates up to 45Msps.
Figure 1-1 DM240XR
The powerful new onboard Monitor and Control (M&C) processor has the unique capability to
download firmware and enhance features from a field-changeable Flash Card. Offering
unprecedented flexibility, this feature represents a new level of Radyne outstanding Customer
Support. Additionally, features are added to the installed equipment base with extreme ease,
allowing the equipment to expand with changes in service while lowering initial installation
budgets.The Modulator offers a frequency-agile IF Output from 50 to 90, 100 to 180 MHz
(70/140), or 950 to 2050 MHz (L-Band) in 1 Hz steps. Variable data rates from 1 Mbps to 238
Mbps can be set in 1 bps steps.
The DM240XR, AutoEQ™ option supports SCPC equalization of Group Delay and Amplitude.
Installing the AutoEQ™ PIIC Interface allows the ability to compensate for the overall system
Group Delay and Amplitude Flatness over the satellite by pre-distorting the Uplink Carrier,
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
1–1
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
Introduction
eliminating the need for external Group Delay/Amplitude Equalizers. AutoEQ™ will
automatically generate the proprietary profile for the DM240XR to pre-distort the modulator,
resulting in Amplitude and Group Delay equalization over the Satellite Link. The AutoEQTM will
operate over the full transponder from a symbol rate of 10.1 Msps to 45 Msps.
Additional features include the choice of remotely interfacing through one of three onboard
connections: 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, RS-485, RS-232 or Web Browser. The familiar Radyne
Front Panel (Figure 1-1) offers push-button control of all features and a backlit LCD display.
Menus are specifically designed for ease of use and quick online operation as well as changes in
all modulator configurations.
The DM240XR supports optional 1:1 Redundancy for data, IF or both offering superior system
reliability based on customer needs and applications.
Redundancy Options support include:
•
•
•
•
RCS11: 1 RU Chassis that supports redundancy for both IF (70/140MHz or L-band) and
supports various data interfaces.
RRS11: 1RU Chassis supports redundancy for either 70/140 MHz or L-band. Includes
easy access to monitor ports for online and offline monitoring via the front panel. Power
and control logic is supplied by a rear panel connector on the DM240XR.
STS11: Small package design that supports redundancy for either 70/140 MHz or Lband. Includes easy access to monitor ports for online and offline monitoring via the
front panel. Power and control logic is supplied by a rear panel connector on the
DM240XR
Data Redundancy: The DM240XR PIIC interfaces allows for data redundancy when dual
interfaces are installed. The modulator can satisfy the user's applications when the
system requires monitoring of the redundant data paths. Simply configure the redundant
interface and the modulator will monitor the integrity of the data paths and switch in the
event data is corrupted on either path.

Chapter 2. Installation
This section provides unpacking and installation instructions, and a description of external
connections and backward alarm information.
2.1
Installation Requirements
The DM240 can be installed within any standard 19-inch equipment cabinet or rack, and requires
1 RU mounting space (1.75 inches) vertically and 17 inches of depth. Including cabling, a
minimum of 20-inches of rack depth is required. The rear panel of the DM240XR is designed to
have power enter from the left and IF cabling enter from the right when viewed from the rear of
the unit. Data and control cabling can enter from either side although they are closer to the
center. The unit can be placed on a table or suitable surface if required.
WARNING
PROPER GROUNDING PROTECTION: During installation and setup, the
user must ensure that the unit is properly grounded. The equipment shall
be connected to the protective earth connection through the end use
protective earth protection.
In addition, the IF input and output coax cable shielding must be properly
terminated to the chassis/unit ground.
WARNING
There are no user-serviceable parts or configuration settings located
inside the DM240 Chassis. There is a potential shock hazard internally at
the power supply module. DO NOT open the DM240 Chassis under any
circumstances.

Installation
CAUTION
Before initially applying power to the unit, it is a good idea to disconnect
the transmit output from the operating ground station equipment. This is
especially true if the current DM240XR configuration settings are
unknown,
where
incorrect
settings
could
disrupt
existing
communications traffic.
2.2
Unpacking
The DM240XR Modulator was carefully packaged to avoid damage and should arrive complete
with the following items for proper installation:




2.3
DM240XR Unit.
Compact Flash Card. Must be installed.
Power Cord, 6-foot with applicable AC connector.
Installation and Operation Manual.
Removal and Assembly
Carefully unpack the unit and ensure that all of the above items are in the carton. If the Prime AC
power available at the installation site requires a different power cord/AC connector, then
arrangements to receive the proper device will be necessary before proceeding with the
installation.
The DM240XR modulator is shipped fully assembled. It does not require removal of the covers
for any purpose in installation. The only replaceable assembly in the unit is the data interface and
is not intended to be accomplished in the field. Should the power cable AC connector be of the
wrong type for the installation, either the cable or the power connector end should be replaced.
The power supply itself is designed for universal application using from 100 to 240 VAC, 50 to
60 Hz, < 40 W.
2.4
Mounting Considerations
When mounted in an equipment rack, adequate ventilation must be provided. The ambient
temperature in the rack should be between 10° and 35° C, and held constant for best equipment
operation. The air available to the rack should be clean and relatively dry. The DM240XR units
may be stacked one on top of the other up to a maximum of 10 consecutive units before providing
a 1 RU space for airflow.
Do not mount the DM240XR in an unprotected outdoor location where there is direct contact
with rain, snow, wind or sun. The DM240XR is designed for indoor applications only.
The only tools required for rack mounting the DM240XR is a set of four rack mounting screws
and an appropriate screwdriver. Rack mount brackets are an integral part of the cast front bezel
of the unit and are not removable.

DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
Installation
Shielded cables with the shield terminated to the conductive backshells are required in order to
meet EMC directives. Cables with insulation flammability ratings of 94 VO or better are required
in order to meet low voltage directives.
2.5
Modulator Checkout
The following descriptions assume that the DM240XR is installed in a suitable location with
prime AC power and supporting equipment available.
2.5.1
Initial Power-Up
CAUTION
Before initial power up of the DM240XR, it is a good idea to disconnect
the transmit output from the operating ground station equipment. This is
especially true if the current modulator configuration settings are
unknown, where incorrect setting could disrupt existing communications
traffic. New units from the factory are normally shipped in a default
configuration which includes setting the transmit carrier off.
Turn the unit ‘ON’ by placing the rear panel switch (above the power entry connector) to the
‘ON’ position. Upon initial and subsequent power-ups, the DM240XR microprocessor will test
itself and several of its components before beginning its main Monitor/Control program. These
power-up diagnostics show no results if successful. If a failure is detected, the Fault LED is
illuminated.
The initial field checkout of the DM240XR can be accomplished from the front panel, Terminal
Port, Remote Port, or Ethernet Port.

Chapter 3. Theory of Operation
3.1
Theory of Operation
The advanced hardware/software architecture of the DM240XR allows a single piece of hardware
to be configured for a variety of different applications. Several of these hardware/software
platforms are listed in the next sections. Custom applications are available.
The basic operation of each platform is similar. A digital terrestrial interface supplies the
modulator with a data stream. The data stream is synchronized if the incoming stream is framed.
The data is scrambled, and FEC is added. The data is then convolutionally encoded, punctured,
then constellation mapped. The resulting I&Q Symbols are digitally filtered. The data is then
converted into an analog waveform and is vector modulated onto an RF Carrier produced from
the Transmit IF Synthesizer Circuitry.
Since the baseband processing is completely digital, many different variations of signal
processing can be performed. Therefore, the DM240XR is one of the most flexible digital
modulators available today.
3.2
DVB-S Operation
The DVB-S version of the DM240XR complies with both EN300-421 and EN301-210 ETSI
Specifications.

Gold code sequence index. Displayed only in DVB-S2.
LAST RATE CTRL:
{SYMBOL RATE, DATA RATE, AUTO}
Indicates the rate (symbol or data) that is maintained when
associated parameters (i.e. Modulation, Inner FEC Code Rate,
Terr Framing) are changed. For example, if the Last Rate
Control is set to “Symbol Rate” and the modulation is
subsequently changed, the system will attempt to maintain the
same symbol rate by adjusting the data rate. If the Last Rate
Control is set to “Data Rate” and the modulation is subsequently
changed, the system will attempt to maintain the same data rate
by adjusting the symbol rate.
The “Auto” Setting of Last Rate Control causes the last
explicitly changed rate (symbol or data) to be maintained when
associated parameters are changed. For example, if the last rate
control is set to “Auto” and the Data Rate is subsequently
explicitly changed, any subsequent changes to Modulation or
Inner FEC Rate would cause the symbol rate to be adjusted in
order to maintain the Data Rate.
EQ ENABLE:
{Enable, Disable}
Allows the DM240XR Modulator to implement the AutoEQ™
coefficient values as specified by the EQ Select.
EQ SELECT:
None, User Specified Name}
Allows the DM240XR Modulator to select the stored AutoEQ™
coefficient file to be implemented. Up to 32 User Nameable
storage locations are available.
RXIF:
{950 – 2050 MHz}
Sets the receive input center frequency for the AutoEQ™
Interface Card. This programmed frequency must be within + 25
kHz of the actual desired system downlink center frequency to
insure proper acquisition.
MSE:
{Value}
Displays the Mean Squared Error (MSE) value of the equalizer.
A value of 1 E-5 or less indicates a successful calibration run
with acceptable coefficients for operation over the satellite.
EQ CAL:
{Normal, Calibrating, Ref ACQ}
Allows the DM240XR Modulator to select the AutoEQ™
interface mode of operation.
Normal:When in this state, the AutoEQ™ is in monitoring
mode, with no Calibration or Reference Acquisition functions
being preformed.
Calibrating: When in this state, the AutoEQ™ will program the
DM240XR modulated output for the AutoEQ™ calibration

signal. The calibration output bandwidth is set by the symbol
rate currently programmed into the DM240XR Modulator.
During calibration, the AutoEQ™ will compute the coefficient
values required to successful equalize the group delay and
amplitude of the satellite link over the programmed symbol rate.
During this process, the MSE can be monitored reflecting the
calibration process. Upon successful completion of the
calibration, the EQ CAL will revert to the “Normal” state, and
the event logof the DM240XR will reflect “AutoEQ™ CAL
SUCCESSFUL”.
(EQ CAL: Cont)
REF ACQ: Although default reference files are provided, the
operator may wish to acquire the best possible reference from
their modulator. A mechanism to accomplish this is allowed by
REF ACQ, this overwrites the stored default and replaces it with
a new reference. Prior to entering this state, the L-Band output
of the DM240XR (J11) must be connected to the AutoEQ™
RXRF Input (J12) as shown in Appendix D. The DM240XR
Output power should be set to -20 dBm, and a 20 dB in line
attenuator should be used. The Modulator output frequency
should be set to set to the corresponding AutoEQ™ RXRF Input
Frequency. When properly connected and in this state, the
AutoEQ™ will program the DM240XR modulated output for the
AutoEQ™ calibration signal. The calibration output bandwidth
is set by the symbol rate currently programmed into the
DM240XR Modulator. During reference calibration, the
AutoEQ™ will obtain receive lock and establish the baseline
coefficients for internal reference. References are captured for
each modulator roll-off and oversample rate. During this
process, the MSE can be monitored reflecting the Reference
Acquisition process. Upon successful completion of the
Reference Acquisition, the REF ACQ will revert to the
“Normal” state, and the event log of the DM240XR will reflect
“REF ACQ SUCCESSFUL”.

User Interfaces
{ON, OFF}
This selection is available only when the Advanced ASI
Interface Type is selected. When set to “On,” the DM240 will
overwrite the PCR Value in appropriate packets to compensate
for any Null Packets, which have been inserted into the data

IMPORTANT
The Transmit Clock (SCT) supplied by the DM240XR is always Output.
Normally, this clock is used to clock the data out of the data source and then
return it to the SCTE input. The DM240XR is then set to SCTE mode
eliminating any possible clock skew. Alternately, the data source can
generate the SCTE clock internally and the SCT signal can be ignored. If
SCT mode is selected, the Modulator data clock will not be locked to the
incoming data stream. This mode is NOT recommended except for testing or
fault backup.

JITTER BUFFER:
{10 TO 200ms}
Allows the operator to select the jitter buffer depth from 10 ms to
200 ms in 10 ms steps. The Jitter Buffer is used by the
modulator to smooth out the network jitter that is inherent in
Ethernet networks. Entry of zero (no jitter buffer) is not
allowed.
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
4–13
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
User Interfaces
JITTER TRACKING: {Widest, Wide, Mid Level, Narrow, Narrowest}
Allows the operator to select how the modulator reacts to and
compensates for jitter. Because the modulators transmit clock is
locked to the incoming data stream, care must be taken when
selecting this parameter. While wider tracking allows larger
changes due to network jitter to be compensated for, it also
means that the receiver will have to track larger, faster, clock rate
changes as the transmit clock is adjusted. On the other hand,
narrower tracking means smaller, slower, changes in the clock
rate but requires more precise network timing to keep the jitter
buffer from over or under flowing.
BACKUP MODE:
{Manual or Automatic)
The Backup Mode allows the user to utilize a backup IP
Address in the event the primary IP selection fails.
Manual Mode: When selected, the modulator will stay with the
selected online port (Prime or Backup) even when it is not able
to lock to the incoming data stream. User must select with Prime
or Backup address in the ONLINE SELECT menu.
Automatic Mode: When selected, the modulator will switch
between the Prime or Backup port when it is not able to lock to
one or the other.
BACKUP DELAY:
{100ms TO 5 seconds}
Allows selection of the time to delay in the event of an online
source fault (prime or backup) before switching over to the other
source (backup or prime). Entry is in 100 ms steps from 100 ms
to 5 seconds. Displayed when backup mode is set to AUTO.
PRIME ETHERNET: Scroll down to configure the IP selection for the prime UDP port
PRIME IP ADDR:
{XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX}
Allows entry of the prime IP address to be used by the
Ethernet Data Interface. This will be the source IP
address for all Ethernet traffic generated by this
interface.

Remote Port User Interface
The Remote Port of the DM240XR allows for complete control and monitor functions via an RS485 Serial Interface.
Control and status messages are conveyed between the DM240XR and the subsidiary modems,
and the host computer using packetized message blocks in accordance with a proprietary
communications specification. This communication is handled by the Radyne Link Level
Protocol (RLLP), which serves as a protocol ‘wrapper’ for the M&C data.
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
4–30
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
User Interfaces
Complete information on monitor and control software is contained in the following sections.
4.4.1 Protocol Structure
The Communications Specification (COMMSPEC) defines the interaction of computer resident
Monitor and Control software used in satellite earth station equipment such as modems,
redundancy switches, multiplexers, and other ancillary support gear. Communication is bidirectional, and is normally established on one or more full-duplex multi-drop control buses that
conform to EIA Standard RS-485.
Each piece of earth station equipment on a control bus has a unique physical address, which is
assigned during station setup/configuration or prior to shipment. Valid decimal addresses on one
control bus range from 032 through 255 for a total of up to 224 devices per bus. Address 255 of
each control bus is usually reserved for the M&C computer.
4.4.2 Protocol Wrapper
The Radyne COMMSPEC is byte-oriented, with the Least Significant Bit (LSB) issued first.
Each data byte is conveyed as mark/space information with two marks comprising the stop data.
When the last byte of data is transmitted, a hold comprises one steady mark (the last stop bit). To
begin or resume data transfer, a space substitutes this mark. This handling scheme is controlled
by the hardware and is transparent to the user. A pictorial representation of the data and its
surrounding overhead may be shown as follows:
S1
S2
B0
B1
B2
B3
B4
B5
B6
B7
S1
S2, etc.
The stop bits, S1 and S2, are each a mark. Data flow remains in a hold mode until S2 is replaced
by a space. If S2 is followed by a space, it is considered a start bit for the data byte and not part
of the actual data (B0 - B 7).
The COMMSPEC developed for use with the Radyne Link Level Protocol (RLLP) organizes the
actual monitor and control data within a shell, or "protocol wrapper” that surrounds the data. The
format and structure of the COMMSPEC message exchanges are described herein. Decimal
numbers have no suffix; hexadecimal numbers end with a lower case h suffix and binary values
have a lower case b suffix. Thus, 22 = 16h = 000010110b. The principal elements of a data
frame, in order of occurrence, are summarized as follows:
<SYN> - the message format header character, or ASCII sync character, that defines the
beginning of a message. The <SYN> character value is always 16h.
<BYTE COUNT> - the Byte Count is the number of bytes in the <DATA> field, ranging from 0
through TBD. This field is 2 bytes long for the DM240 protocol.
<SOURCE ID> - the Source Identifier defines the message originator’s multidrop address.

IMPORTANT
All nodes on a given control bus have a unique address that must be defined.
<DESTINATION ID> - The Destination Identifier specifies the multidrop address of the
device(s) to which the message is sent.
<FRAME SEQUENCE NUMBER> - The FSN is a tag with a value from 0 through 255 that is
sent with each message. It assures sequential information framing and correct equipment
acknowledgment and data transfers.
<OPCODE> - The Operation Code field contains a number that identifies the message type
associated with the data that follows it. Acknowledgment and error codes are returned in this
field. This field is 2 Bytes for the DM240 protocol.
<...DATA...> - The Data field contains the binary, data bytes associated with the
<OPCODE>. The number of data bytes in this field is indicated by the <BYTE COUNT> value.
<CHECKSUM> - The checksum is the modulo 256 sum of all preceding message bytes,
excluding the <SYN> character. The checksum determines the presence or absence of errors
within the message. In a message block with the following parameters, the checksum is
computed as shown below in Table 4-4.

<DATA> (Byte 2)

Thus, the checksum is 00000101b; which is 05h or 5 decimal. Alternative methods of
calculating the checksum for the same message frame are:
00h + 02h + F0h + 2Ah + 09h + 00h + 03h + DFh + FEh = 305h.
Since the only concern is the modulo 256 (modulo 100h) equivalent (values that can be
represented by a single 8-bit byte), the checksum is 05h.
For a decimal checksum calculation, the equivalent values for each information field are:
0 + 2 + 240 + 42 + 9 + 0 + 3 + 223 + 254 = 773;
773/256 = 3 with a remainder of 5. This remainder is the checksum for the frame.
5 (decimal) = 05h = 0101b = <CHECKSUM>

4.4.3 Frame Description and Bus Handshaking
In a Monitor and Control environment, every message frame on a control bus port executes as a
packet in a loop beginning with a wait-for-SYN-character mode. The remaining message format
header information is then loaded, either by the M&C computer or by a subordinate piece of
equipment requesting access to the bus. Data is processed in accordance with the OPCODE, and
the checksum for the frame is calculated. If the anticipated checksum does not match then the
wait-for-SYN mode goes back into effect. If the OPCODE resides within a command message, it
defines the class of action that denotes an instruction that is specific to the device type, and is a
prefix to the DATA field if data is required. If the OPCODE resides within a query message
packet, then it defines the query code, and can serve as a prefix to query code DATA.
The Frame Sequence Number (FSN) is included in every message packet, and increments
sequentially. When the M & C computer or bus-linked equipment initiates a message, it assigns
the FSN as a tag for error control and handshaking. A different FSN is produced for each new
message from the FSN originator to a specific device on the control bus. If a command packet is
sent and not received at its intended destination, then an appropriate response message is not
received by the packet originator. The original command packet is then re-transmitted with the
same FSN. If the repeated message is received correctly at this point, it is considered a new
message and is executed and acknowledged as such.
If the command packet is received at its intended destination but the response message
(acknowledgment) is lost, then the message originator (usually the M&C computer) re-transmits
the original command packet with the same FSN. The destination device detects the same FSN
and recognizes that the message is a duplicate, so the associated commands within the packet are
not executed a second time. However, the response packet is again sent back to the source as an
acknowledgment in order to preclude undesired multiple executions of the same command.
To reiterate, valid equipment responses to a message require the FSN tag in the command packet.
This serves as part of the handshake/acknowledge routine. If a valid response message is absent,
then the command is re-transmitted with the same FSN. For a repeat of the same command
involving iterative processes (such as increasing or decreasing transmit power level), the FSN is
incremented after each message packet. When the FSN value reaches 255, it overflows and
begins again at zero.
The full handshake/acknowledgment involves a reversal of source and destination ID codes in the
next message frame, followed by a response code in the <OPCODE> field of the message packet
from the equipment under control.
4.4.4 Global Response Operational Codes
In acknowledgment (response) packets, the operational code <OPCODE> field of the message
packet is set to 0 by the receiving devices when the message intended for the device is evaluated
as valid. The device that receives the valid message then exchanges the <SOURCE ID> with the
<DESTINATION ID>, sets the <OPCODE> to zero in order to indicate that a good message was
received, and returns the packet to the originator. This "GOOD MESSAGE" Opcode is one of
nine global responses. Global response Opcodes are common responses, issued to the M&C
computer or to another device that can originate from and are interpreted by all Radyne
equipment in the same manner. These are summarized as follows:

4.4.5 Collision Avoidance
When properly implemented, the physical and logical devices and ID addressing scheme of the
COMMSPEC normally precludes message packet contention on the control bus. The importance
of designating unique IDs for each device during station configuration cannot be overemphasized.
One pitfall, which is often overlooked, concerns multi-drop override IDs.
All too often, multiple devices of the same type are assigned in a direct-linked ("single-thread")
configuration accessible to the M&C computer directly. For example, if two DM240 Modulators
with different addresses (DESTINATION IDs) are linked to the same control bus at the same
hierarchical level, both will attempt to respond to the M&C computer when the computer
generates a multi-drop override ID of 23. If their actual setup parameters, status, or internal
timing differs, they will both attempt to respond to the override simultaneously with different
information, or asynchronously in their respective message packets and response packets, causing
a collision on the serial control bus.
To preclude control bus data contention, different IDs must always be assigned to the equipment.
If two or more devices are configured for direct-linked operation, then the M&C computer and all
other devices configured in the same manner must be programmed to inhibit broadcast of the
corresponding multi-drop override ID.
The multi-drop override ID is always accepted by devices of the same type on a common control
bus, independent of the actual DESTINATION ID. These override IDs with the exception of
“BROADCAST” are responded to by all directly linked devices of the same type causing
contention on the bus. The “BROADCAST” ID, on the other hand, is accepted by all equipment
but none of them returns a response packet to the remote M&C. The following multi-drop
override IDs are device-type specific, with the exception of "BROADCAST". These are
summarized below with ID values expressed in decimal notation:

IMPORTANT
Multi-drop override ID 01 can be used interchangeably to broadcast a message
to a DMD-3000/4000 modem, a DMD-4500/5000, a DMD15 modem, or a
DVB3030. Radyne Corp. recommends that the multi-drop override IDs be
issued only during system configuration as a bus test tool by experienced
programmers, and that they not be included in run-time software. It is also
advantageous to consider the use of multiple bus systems where warranted by a
moderate to large equipment complement.
Therefore, if a DMD15 Modulator is queried for its equipment type identifier, it will return a "20"
and DMD15 Demodulator will return a "21". A DMD15 Modem will also return an "22". A
DVB3030 Video Modulator will return a “23.”
4.4.6 Software Compatibility
The COMMSPEC, operating in conjunction within the RLLP shell, provides for full forward and
backward software compatibility independent of the software version in use. New features are
appended to the end of the DATA field without OPCODE changes. Older software simply
discards the data as extraneous information without functional impairment for backward
compatibility.
If new device-resident or M&C software receives a message related to an old software
version, new information and processes are not damaged or affected by the omission of data.
The implementation of forward and backward software compatibility often, but not always,
requires the addition of new Opcodes. Each new function requires a new Opcode assignment if
forward and backward compatibility cannot be attained by other means.
When Radyne equipment is queried for bulk information (Query Mod, Query Demod, etc.) it
responds by sending back two blocks of data; a Non-Volatile Section (parameters that can be
modified by the user) and a Volatile Section (status information). It also returns a count value
that indicates how large the Non-Volatile Section is. This count is used by M&C developers to
index into the start of the Volatile Section.
When new features are added to Radyne equipment, the control parameters are appended to the
end of the Non-Volatile Section, and status of the features, if any, are added at the end of the
Volatile Section. If a remote M&C queries two pieces of Radyne equipment with different
revision software, they may respond with two different sized packets. The remote M&C must
make use of the non-volatile count value to index to the start of the Volatile Section. If the
remote M&C is not aware of the newly added features to the Radyne product, it should disregard
the parameters at the end of the Non-Volatile Section and index to the start of the Volatile
Section.
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
4–37
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
User Interfaces
If packets are handled in this fashion, there will also be backward-compatibility between Radyne
equipment and M&C systems. Remote M&C systems need not be modified every time a feature
is added unless the user needs access to that feature.
4.4.7 RLLP Summary
The RLLP is a simple send-and-wait protocol that automatically re-transmits a packet
when an error is detected, or when an acknowledgment (response) packet is absent.
During transmission, the protocol wrapper surrounds the actual data to form information packets.
Each transmitted packet is subject to time out and frame sequence control parameters, after which
the packet sender waits for the receiver to convey its response. Once a receiver verifies that a
packet sent to it is in the correct sequence relative to the previously received packet, it computes a
local checksum on all information within the packet excluding the <SYN> character and the
<CHECKSUM> fields. If this checksum matches the packet <CHECKSUM>, the receiver
processes the packet and responds to the packet sender with a valid response (acknowledgment)
packet.
The response packet is therefore either an acknowledgment that the message was received
correctly. If the sender receives a valid acknowledgment (response) packet from the receiver, the
<FSN> increments and the next packet is transmitted as required by the sender.
If an acknowledgment (response) packet is lost, corrupted, or not issued due to an error and is
thereby not returned to the sender, the sender re-transmits the original information packet; but
with the same <FSN>. When the intended receiver detects a duplicate packet, the packet is
acknowledged with a response packet and internally discarded to preclude undesired repetitive
executions. If the M&C computer sends a command packet and the corresponding response
packet is lost due to a system or internal error, the computer times out and re-transmits the same
command packet with the same <FSN> to the same receiver and waits once again for an
acknowledgment.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), as its name suggests, is a relatively simple
protocol by which management information for a network device may be inspected and/or altered
by remote administrators. Refer to section 8 MIB Protocol
4.7
The Management Information Base (MIB)
Refer to Section 8 MIB Protocol
Management objects are defined in the Management Information Base (MIB), which uses a
hierarchical naming scheme. Within this scheme, each object is identified by an Object Identifier
(OID), a sequence of non-negative integers that uniquely describes the path taken through the
hierarchical structure.
MIB objects may then be specified either from the Root (which has no designator), or
alternatively from anywhere within the hierarchical structure.
For example: 1.3.6.1.4.1.2591.4 is equivalent to {iso(1). org(3). dod(6). internet(1). private(4).
enterprises(1). Radyne(2591). RCS10L(4)} (See Figure 4-4a and 4-4b).
In general, we are mainly concerned with just two groups that reside in the internet subtree,
namely the mgmt, and private groups. For completeness however, the four major groups are
discussed below:
4.7.1 Directory
{internet 1}
1.3.6.1.1
This area was reserved to describe how the OSI directory structure may be used in the Internet.
To date this has not been implemented and therefore is of little interest to us.
4.7.2 Mgmt
{internet 2}
1.3.6.1.2
This area was reserved to describe objects in the standard MIB. As RFCs defining new groups
are ratified, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigns new group IDs.
4.7.3 Experimental
{internet 3}
1.3.6.1.3
This subtree provides an area where experimentation is carried out. Only those organizations
directly involved in the experiment have any interest in this subtree.

4.7.4 Private
{internet 4}
User Interfaces
1.3.6.1.4
This is possible the most important area of the MIB, since it is within this subtree that vendors
place objects specific to their particular devices. Beneath the private branch, there is a subtree
called enterprises, beneath which each vendor may define its own structure. Vendors are
assigned Private Enterprise Numbers (PENs) that uniquely identify them. They may then place
all objects specific to their devices in this tree, provided of course that the object conforms to the
format defined by SMI. Radyne Corporation’s Private Enterprise Number is 2591. Other
products are added to Radyne Corporation’s subtree as they become remotely manageable
through SNMP.

Terminal Port User Interface
The Terminal Port of the DM240XR supports an asynchronous control protocol. It is configured
to support RS-232 signal levels. This port is intended for use in computer-based remote M&C.
All functions of the modem may be monitored and controlled from this port via a common
terminal connected to the Terminal Port.
The Terminal Mode Control allows the use of an external terminal or computer to monitor and
control the modem from a full screen interactive presentation operated by the modem itself. No
external software is required other than VT-100 Terminal Emulation Software (e.g. “Procomm”
for a computer when used as a terminal. The Control Port is normally used as an RS–232
Connection to the terminal device. The RS-232 operating parameters can be set using the modem
Front Panel and stored in Non-volatile memory for future use. Terminal mode communications
and protocol is set from the front panel control by setting the “Term Baud” and “Emulation”
parameters as desired. Then a terminal is connected to Connector J1 on the Back Panel.
A “break” signal on the communications line, pressing “ESC” on the terminal or Power On of the
modem will initiate full screen terminal mode printing and redraw the full screen. The terminal
mode displays the present status of all user parameters controlled and read by the processor, and
offers a menu allowing change to any controlled parameter.
Representations of the terminal screens are shown in Figures 4-5 through 4-12. These screens
may differ from the exact screens displayed due to changes in software and the presence (or
absence) of options in the modem hardware. For instance, the presence of RF Switch control
hardware will result in added options available on the screens, or additional screens to be
available.

Chapter 6. Maintenance and
Troubleshooting
This section discusses unit maintenance and troubleshooting for the DM240XR High-Speed
Digital Modulator.
6.1
Periodic Maintenance
The DM240XR modulator requires no periodic field maintenance procedures. Should a unit be
suspected of a defect in field operations after all interface signals are verified, the correct
procedure is to replace the unit with another known working DM240XR. If this does not cure the
problem, wiring or power should be suspect.
There is no external fuse on the DM240XR. The fuse is located on the power supply assembly
inside the case, and replacement is not intended in the field.

Chapter 9. Remote Operations
When new features are added to Radyne Corp. equipment, the control
parameters are appended to the end of the Non-Volatile Section of the Remote
Communications Specification, and status of the features, if any, are added at
the end of the Volatile Section. If a remote M&C queries two pieces of Radyne
Corp. equipment with different revision software, they could respond with two
different sized packets. The remote M&C MUST make use of the non-volatile
count value to index to the start of the Volatile Section. If the remote M&C is
not aware of the newly added features to the product, it should disregard the
parameters at the end of the Non-Volatile Section and index to the start of the
Volatile Section.
Before creating any software based on the information contained in this
document, contact the Radyne Corp. Customer Service Department
(602-437-9620) to find out if the software revision for that piece of equipment
is current and that no new features have been added since the release of this
document.

The IP Address of the Boot Server and the address of the SNMP
Trap Server when SNMP is active. If a server is used and there
is no local router, this address must be consistent with the
modem address. If a router has been specified, the address is
presumed to be reachable via the router. Broadcast and loop
back addresses will not be allowed. These are addresses with all

Appendix B. TCP/IP Ethernet Setup
B.1
Introduction
The DM240XR supports SNMP, FTP protocols and the Web Browser. Utilization of the
protocols is dependent upon proper set up of the TCP-IP menus. This document is to be used
only as a guideline for setting up the TCP-IP menus. Contact the IT manager for proper guidance
to ensure setup is successful. For additional information on the various WEB or SNMP
configurations and descriptions refer to Section 8 and 10.
B.2
TCP/IP Network Configuration
Using the Front Panel display and arrow keys, scroll thru the System menu until the TCP / IP sub
menu is displayed. Each unit requires proper configuration with the correct network settings.
Contact the IT manager for a valid IP address mask, Modem, server and router IP addresses.
Enter into the TCP / IP menu and the following Sub menus will appear, however the order may
vary.
1. Boot Mode: This allows for the selection of the operating boot mode for the TCP / IP.
Several selections are available and are described below. When configuring the modem for
Web Browser, Boot Mode must be set to “NON-VOL”. A brief description of the available
selections are:
a. Default: If the Ethernet interface is not to be used, select this mode. No IP Address or
mask changes will be allowed while in this mode of operation. The following parameters
will be set and will not change until the boot mode is changed. The IP addresses are non
accessible addresses:




IP MASK
MODEM IP ADDR
SERVER IP ADDR
ROUTER IP ADDR
255.000.000.000
010.000.000.001
010.001.001.001
010.000.001.001
b. BOOTp: When enabled, at boot time, the modem will use the Bootp Protocol to
automatically get names, masks, and IP Addresses of the modem, router, and server from
the Network Manager. This should be consistent with the tag expected by the users
Bootp Server (see the next menu selection for setting the BOOTp TAG). If Bootp is not
enabled, the modem will ignore the BOOTp Tag setting.
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
B–1
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
TCP/IP Ethernet Setup
c. NON-VOL: This will allow for setting up all required IP Addresses and will store the
information to the non-volatile memory. Upon power cycle, the modem will restore the
saved settings into the correct fields.
d. IP TEST: The IP Test selection is similar in behavior to the Default selection. When
enabled, the following preset parameters will be programmed and will not change until
the selection is changed. To edit these parameters, change the boot mode to NON-VOL.

192.168.000.238
192.168.000.101
192.168.000.102
IMPORTANT
The DM240XR is shipped from the factory with the Boot Mode configured as
Default. Verify that the Boot Mode is set for Default. To access the unit via the
Ethernet port, set the selection to IP TEST. This will set the IP parameter to an
accessible address. If user wants to utilize an alternate address, user must set the
selection to NON-VOL. As an example, we will use a new modem IP address of
172.018.100.205 for the remaining of the TCP-IP setup procedure. Contact the
IT manager for proper guidance to ensure setup is successful.
2. BOOT SERVER TAG: This allows for the selection of the operating boot tag when operating in
the BOOTp Mode. The default setting of 206 is automatically selected when the boot mode is set
to ‘DEFAULT’ (factory preset mode).
3. MODEM HOST: This displays the unit Host name that is operating, such as “DM240”. This is
a read only display.
4. IP ADDR MASK: This will allow for the entry of the IP Address Mask. This will need to be
entered based on the Network settings. Refer to your IP Administrator if you do not know this
address for the correct address setting. Example IP Address Mask setting: 255.255.000.000.
5. MODEM IP ADDR: This will allow for the entry of the Modem‘s individual network IP
Address. Each device on the network will have a unique address. Refer to the IT administrator
for the correct address setting. Example Modem IP Address setting: 172.018.100.215.
6. SERVER IP ADDR: This allows for the setup of the Network Server IP Address. This section
refers to the Host that will be used to optionally boot the DM240 on power-up and is the SNMP
Trap Server. This IP Address needs to be consistent with the Modem IP Address. Broadcast and
loop back addresses will not be allowed. Example Server IP Address setting: 172.018.004.250.
7. ROUTER IP ADDR: This allows for the setup of the Network Router IP Address. If a router is
present on the local network, and it is to be used, this address must be consistent with the IP
Address Mask and the subnet of the modem. If no router is present, then the address should be
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
B–2
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
TCP/IP Ethernet Setup
set to a foreign address. Broadcast and loop back addresses will not be allowed. Router not used
example: Router IP Address setting: 010.000.001.001.
8. MODEM EADDR: This displays the Modem (Unit) Ethernet Address. The Modem Ethernet
Address is configured at the factory. It is a unique Radyne equipment identifier Address.
Example: 0010650903EB
9. ETHER RATE: This displays the current Ethernet port data rate. If multiple rates are available,
then a selection can be made to specify the Ethernet port data rate (10BaseT). Example Ethernet
port Data Rate: 10 MBPS/HD

Web Browser Quick Setup Guide
Radyne utilizes authentication and authorization together with a user database and a security
Realm to design a secure site. This allows for the use of users and groups, where users are
generally people that may access the system, and groups represent the position that users can
hold.
The Modem’s Front Panel has full administrative privileges, allowing the operator through the
Front Panel Menu entries to perform monitor and control modem parameter settings, change other
interface user names and passwords, and modify IP network settings.
The web user database consists of three users (USER 1, USER 2, USER 3), with initial default
names of guest, oper, and admin. Access rights and authentication make it possible to restrict
access to a specified set of web users. There are three levels of security privileges that can be
assigned to any user. They are:
•
•
•
•
GUEST: Users are able to navigate most of the site, and view modem parameter settings.
OPER: Users can monitor and control modem parameter settings, and change their own
authentication passwords.
ADMIN: At this highest access right, users can monitor and control modem parameter
settings, change any user’s name and authentication password, and modify IP network
settings. This setting has full access to the entire site.
NO GROUP: Assigning this will block all access from the site.

AutoEQ™ PIIC Interface Theory of Operation
AutoEQ™ PIIC Interface allows the ability to compensate for the overall system Group Delay
and Amplitude Equalization over the satellite by pre-distorting the Uplink Carrier, eliminating the
need for external Group Delay/Amplitude Equalizers. AutoEQ™ will automatically generate the
proprietary profile for the DM240XR to pre-distort the modulator, resulting in Amplitude and
Group Delay equalization over the Satellite Link.

AutoEQ™ Interface Operation Guide
AutoEQ™ supports SCPC equalization of Group Delay and Amplitude over the satellite system.
When installed into the PIIC slot of the DM240XR (with Firmware Revision FO5377-J or
higher), the AutoEQ™ Calibration menu will be displayed allowing for selection and monitoring
of the AutoEQ™ functions. The AutoEQ™ will operate over the full transponder from a symbol
rate of 10.1 Msps to 45 Msps.
Note, the 45 Msps AutoEQ™ requires a different PIIC card (PLR5972) than the original PIIC
card (PLR5808) operating to 38 Msps. The new AutoEQ™ card supersedes and replaces the
original one and both are supported by revision N or later firmware.
When the AutoEQ™ Calibration mode is selected, the DM240XR will disable the existing
programmed modulated outbound signal, and replace it with the AutoEQ™ calibration signal at
the same Symbol Rate, Roll off, and Transmit frequency as programmed into the DM240XR.
This signal is transmitted to the satellite, and received (Satellite Loop-Back) by the DM240XR
AutoEQ™ input at the L-Band downlink frequency. The AutoEQ™ calibration mode will
demodulate the received signal, and automatically calculate the required pre-distortion parameters
for the Satellite Link.
This information is read by the DM240XR modulator where the new pre-distort values are
programmed into the outbound carrier, resulting with the required pre-distortion of the TX output.
Upon successful completion of the calibration cycles, the DM240XR will automatically return to
the programmed outbound signal (such as DVB-S2) with the proper pre-distortion for the satellite
loop per the selected symbol rate, roll off and transponder frequency. If any parameters are
changed affecting Symbol Rate or Roll off, AutoEQ™ must be re-calibrated to the new
parameters. At any time, AutoEQ™ can be enabled or disabled.
The DM240XR is capable of retaining 32 AutoEQ™ satellite loop pre-distortion values, which
can be useful for systems requiring relocation to different transponders or Satellites. Once the
applicable transponder is calibrated, the calibration information can be stored in memory for use
now or in the future. All storage locations can be renamed by the user to correspond with the
identification of the transponder, and recalled for operational use.

REF ACQ: Although default reference files are provided, the
operator may wish to acquire the best possible reference from
their modulator. A mechanism to accomplish this is allowed by
REF ACQ, this overwrites the stored default and replaces it with
a new reference. Prior to entering this state, the L-Band output
of the DM240XR (J11) must be connected to the AutoEQ™
RXRF Input (J12). The DM240XR Output power should be set
to -20 dBm, and a 20 dB in line attenuator should be used. The
Modulator output frequency should be set to set to the
corresponding AutoEQ™ RXRF Input Frequency. When
properly connected and in this state, the AutoEQ™ will program
the DM240XR modulated output for the AutoEQ™ calibration
signal. The calibration output bandwidth is set by the symbol
rate currently programmed into the DM240XR Modulator.
During reference calibration, the AutoEQ™ will obtain receive
lock and establish the baseline coefficients for internal reference.
References are captured for each modulator roll-off and
oversample rate. During this process, the MSE can be monitored
reflecting the Reference Acquisition process. Upon successful
completion of the Reference Acquisition, the REF ACQ will
revert to the “Normal” state, and the event log of the DM240XR
will reflect “REF ACQ SUCCESSFUL”.

AutoEQ Backchannel Setup
Introduction
To support remote equalization with the AutoEQ system, the equalization data is
transported over TCP/IP using a backchannel protocol. Before setting up the
backchannel, perform the TCP/IP Ethernet setup as outlined in the TCP/IP Ethernet Setup
section of the user manual. This document is to be used only as a guideline for setting up
the backchannel menus. Contact the Network administrator for proper guidance and
support to ensure setup is successful.
Backchannel Configuration
Using the Front Panel display and arrow keys, scroll thru the System menu until the
Backchannel sub menu is displayed. Both the local unit (the Modulator) and the remote
unit (with the AutoEQ card installed) require the proper configuration with the correct
network settings.
Refer to Figure 4.
Note: The router/gateway/firewall system must be configured to allow these ports to
pass on each communication end. Contact your Network Administrator for allowable
port numbers and to open up the ports on the firewall if necessary.
Enter into the Backchannel menu and the following sub menus will appear, however the

AutoEQ™ Interface Operation Guide
AutoEQ™ Operation Procedure
The following sequence must be followed in order to perform the initial AutoEQ™ Calibration.
The sequence is identified into three (3) individual sections: 1) Reference Acquisition
Calibration (REF ACQ) - optional, 2) Equalizer Calibration (CALIBRATING), and 3) Equalizer
Modes (NORMAL). These three menu selections are selectable under EQ CAL.
All DM240XR Faults and Alarms must be cleared prior to any AutoEQ™
Calibration process. If Data is not present on the DM240XR Data interface
causing a data Alarm, Advanced ASI may be selected for the AutoEQ™
Calibration (Advanced ASI inserts Null Packets into the Data Stream).
D.8
Reference Acquisition Calibration (Optional Step)
This Section will establish the calibration reference for the AutoEQ™ Interface Card. This
optional step may be preformed prior to Equalizer Calibration. This step is optional as
default reference(s) are already loaded into the system. This operation will replace the
default reference(s) with the actual references measured during the calibration cycle. The
modulator must be programmed for an L-Band frequency and the AutoEQ™ RXIF
Frequency programmed to match.
1. Install the AutoEQ™ PIIC Interface into one of the available PIIC Slots on the DM240XR.
2. Verify that the DM240XR revision is FO5377-K or greater.
3. Insure that there is a Flash Card installed in the Flash Card slot on the DM240XR.
4. Using the Front Panel menu, set the DM240XR Modulator Data Rate, Modulation type, Roll
off, and remaining Modulator parameters to the required system settings.
5. Using the Front Panel menu, scroll to “RXIF” located under the EQUALIZER menu and set
the AutoEQ “RXIF”.
For best results it is suggested that the RXIF frequency used to acquire the
reference be the actual frequency used to perform the equalization calibration.
6. Using the Front Panel menu, set the DM240XR Transmit Frequency (L-Band) to match the
programmed AutoEQ RXIF Frequency.
7. Using the Front Panel menu, set the DM240XR TX Output Power to -10 dBm.
8. Connect the DM240XR L-BAND Output (J11) through a 20 dB attenuator then to the AutoEQ
Interface RXRF Input (J12) using a suitable L-Band Cable.

9. Clear the events of the modulator by scrolling to <MONITOR> then down and over to <PRESS
CLEAR TO ERASE EVENTS> and press clear. Verify that the Event LED is now off.
10. Using the Front Panel menu, scroll to “EQ CALIBRATION” and set to “REF ACQ”
a. After a successful calibration the event log will display “REF ACQ SUCCESSFUL” upon
completion of this step. When the REF ACQ is complete, the “EQ CALIBRATION” will
revert to “NORMAL”.
11. Remove the interconnect cable installed in Step 8 above.
12. Verify through the event log that the system successfully calibrated the reference.
D.9
Equalizer Calibration
For best AutoEQ equalization calibration it is recommended that the amplifier be
run in its linear range and not saturated.
The AutoEQ™ RXRF Acquisition range is + 25 kHz from the programmed frequency and is not
programmable. To insure proper operation, the actual center frequency of the carrier should be
accurately measured with this measured value programmed into the AutoEQ™. This can be
accomplished by generation a CW (Carrier Wave) frequency with the modulator, and measuring
the downlink L-Band frequency with an accurate frequency counter or spectrum analyzer.
1. Reprogram the DM240XR Modulator output frequency to the proper operating frequency of
the Uplink system (if it was reprogrammed for Section 4.1 above) and the output power to the
system operating level. Connect the DM240XR Modulator output to the Uplink system.
Enable the modulator and adjust all uplink parameters as required for proper uplink
operation.
2. Measure the center frequency of the down converted modulated signal. Using the front panel
Menu, reprogram the AutoEQ™ to the center frequency of the down converted signal. The
AutoEQ™ programmed frequency must be within + 25 kHz of the measured frequency in
MN-DM240XR– Revision 13
D–11
DM240XR High-Speed Digital Modulator
AutoEQ™ Interface Operation Guide
order to assure proper acquisition of the downlink signal. Connect the AutoEQ™ Input (J12)
to the earth Station L-Band Downlink System. The desired downlink carrier should be
typically between the range of -45 to -20 dBm.
3. Clear the events of the modulator by scrolling to <MONITOR> then down and over to
<PRESS CLEAR TO ERASE EVENTS> and press clear. Verify that the Event LED is now
off.
4. Using the Front Panel menu, scroll to “EQ CAL” and set it to “CALIBRATING”. This will
start the AutoEQ™ Calibration for the Satellite Link.
a. After each data acquisition and processing cycle the MSE display will be updated. A normal
calibration cycle will take 60 to 90 seconds, and system typically performs two or three of
these cycles.
b. During this calibration, the MSE can be monitored showing the progress of the cycle. A
value of 1 E-5 or less will reflect a success full completion of this step. Additionally, event
light will come on, and the event log will display “EQ CAL SUCCESSFUL” upon
completion of this step. When the EQ CAL is complete, the “EQ CAL” will revert to
“NORMAL” and the AutoEQ file will be named “UNTITLED”.
The AutoEQ calibration must be saved or powering down of the system will lose
the calibration.
5. To change the name of the “UNTITLED” file, using the Front Panel menu, scroll to EQ
RENAME, Press ENTER, use the Up/DN Arrows on the Keyboard to change the name, and press
ENTER to save the new name for the file.
6. Using the Front Panel menu, scroll to “SAVE EQ CAL”, and press ENTER to save the file.
