Class 1 Laser Product Safety Warning
The EdgeFLEX 600 is a Class 1 Laser Product. This product complies with 21 CFR 1040.10 and
1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice 50, dated July 26, 2001, as well as European
requirements EN 60825-1 and EN 60825-2. Operational wavelengths are in the range 830-1620 nm.
This symbol on the front panel indicates the presence of invisible laser light. Under normal
operation, Class 1 lasers are considered eye-safe and not harmful. Optical interfaces do not
need to be shut down when connecting or disconnecting optical fibre. However, care should
always be exercised to minimize exposure when working with lasers. Avoid looking into the
transceiver or an unconnected fibre with the naked eye or through the use of viewing optics.
When an interface is not connected with a fibre, replace the dust plug to help protect the
transceiver optics and reduce the chance of accidental exposure to laser light.
Only Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers approved for use by Carrier Access
should be used within this system. Use of non-approved transceiver devices may result in an increased
risk of exposure to invisible laser light or an inoperative optical port.
CAUTION! USE OF CONTROLS OR ADJUSTMENTS OR PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER
THAN THOSE SPECIFIED HEREIN MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS RADIATION EXPOSURE.
CAUTION! THE USE OF OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS WITH THIS PRODUCT WILL INCREASE EYE
HAZARD.

ESTABLISHED AND OPERATIONAL PRIOR TO EXTRACTING THE MANAGEMENT CARD.
WARNING! WHEN INSERTING OR EXTRACTING A EDGEFLEX 600 DC POWER SUPPLY
UNIT, MAKE SURE THE PSU CIRCUIT BREAKER SWITCH IS IN THE OFF POSITION, AND THAT THE
DC POWER CONNECTOR HAS BEEN UNPLUGGED PRIOR TO REMOVING OR INSERTING A PSU.
CAUTION! WHEN INSERTING OR EXTRACTING POD CARDS, USE A SMOOTH, QUICK MOTION
TO ENSURE CONNECTIONS FROM THE CARD TO THE BACKPLANE ARE MADE OR BROKEN
SIMULTANEOUSLY.
Operating the Ejector Latches
The EdgeFLEX 600 card ejector latches combine a lock with an ejector. To unlock and eject a card,
slide the lock toward the end of the handle, and simultaneously pull the handle.
Card Removal/Insertion
To remove and insert a card, perform the following steps:
1. With a #2 Phillips screwdriver, unscrew the captive thumbscrews at the right and left sides of
the card until they are loose.

2. As shown in the following illustrations, grasp the ejector latch, slide the locking bar towards the
end of the handle, then pull the ejector latch. This will force the card to disengage from the
backplane and slide out of the chassis. Use a smooth, quick action to ensure all electrical
contacts from the card to the backplane are broken at once.
NOTE: The SCPX cards and the Management card have ejectors at each end of the card.
Be sure to operate both ejector handles simultaneously.
3. To install a card, align the card with the guides inside the chassis, and slide the card gently into
the chassis. As the card approaches the chassis, be sure that the guide pins are aligned with the
guide holes as shown in the illustration below.

4. At this point, be sure the ejector latch is perpendicular to the card (in the ejected position), then
gently press the ejector latch toward the card. The ejector latch should engage with the chassis
and draw the card into its fully-inserted position. Use a smooth, quick action to install the card
so that electrical connections from the card to the backplane are made at once. When the card
is fully inserted, the ejector latch will snap into its locked position.
If you feel more than a slight amount of resistance, STOP and recheck that the card is correctly
aligned with the chassis guides.
5. After inserting the card fully, use a #2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the captive thumbscrews
at the right and left sides of the card by turning clockwise until secure.
Nonreplaceable Components
The fan tray assemblies, air filter, Management Card, SCPX cards, service cards, Power Supply Units,
OMT modules and SFP modules are the only user-replaceable components of the EdgeFLEX 600
chassis.
If you suspect any other component of the EdgeFLEX 600 to be faulty, contact your Carrier Access
representative.

The EdgeFLEX 600’s two Timing Out ports provide only timing output pins, as shown in the following
table. When the EdgeFLEX 600 is powered, the timing output is synchronized to the input timing
signal. When the EdgeFLEX 600 is not powered, the input timing signal is connected directly to the
output pins as a pass through.

Alarm Inputs Pinout
The alarm inputs are polarity insensitive; the A and B designations in the following table simply
represent the labeling on the management card itself.
The circuitry associated with these pins will sense voltage and/or current changes on the two IN pins in
a set (i.e., pins 1 and 2 represent Input 1). The Voltage Threshold is 5-75Vdc and maximum current is
0.5 Amps.
The inputs are current limited and will never present a load greater than 2 milliamps to the source. The
platform is protected from excessive voltage at its input by a 0.5A non-user-serviceable fuse.
NO and NC status applies to a powered system only; when the system is powered down, NO becomes
NC as a fail-safe mechanism.
