(collectively, the "System"), constitutes your acceptance of this Agreement. "Use" includes opening or breaking the seal on the packet containing this
Agreement, installing or downloading the Software as defined below or using the Software preloaded or embedded in your System. As used herein, the term
"Software" means the Harmonic owned software and/or firmware used in or with the Products and embedded into, provided with or loaded onto the

ii
Products in object code format, but does not include, and this Agreement does not address, any third-party or free or open source software separately
licensed to you ("Third Party Software"). If you do not agree to this Agreement, you shall promptly return the System with a dated receipt to the seller for a
full refund.
2. LICENSE: Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including payment), we hereby grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable license to use
the object code version of the Software embedded into, provided solely for use with or loaded onto the Product, and the accompanying documentation
("Documentation") for your internal business purposes. The Software and any authorized copies are owned by us or our suppliers, and are protected by law,
including without limitation the copyright laws and treaties of the U.S.A. and other countries. Evaluation versions of the Software may be subject to a timelimited license key.
3. RESTRICTIONS: You (and your employees and contractors) shall not attempt to reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, translate, create derivative works
of, rent, lease (including use on a timesharing, applications service provider, service bureau or similar basis), loan, distribute, sublicense or otherwise transfer
the System, in whole or part except to the extent otherwise permitted by law. The Software may be operated on a network only if and as permitted by its
Documentation. You may make one (1) back up copy of the object code of the Software for archival purposes only. Evaluation Software will be run in a lab,
nonproductive environment. Results of any benchmark or other performance tests may not be disclosed to any third party without our prior written consent.
Title to and ownership of the Software and Documentation, and all copyright, patent, trade secret, trademark, and other intellectual property rights in the
System, shall remain our or our licensors' property. You shall not remove or alter any copyright or other proprietary rights notice on the System. We reserve
all rights not expressly granted.
4. LIMITED WARRANTY: (a) Limited Warranty. We warrant to you that, commencing on your receipt of a Product and terminating 1 year thereafter, the System
will perform substantially in accordance with its then-current appropriate Documentation. The Product (including replacements) may consist of new, used or
previously-installed components. (b) Remedies. If the System fails to comply with such warranty during such period, as your sole remedy, you must return
the same in compliance with our product return policy, and we shall, at our option, repair or replace the System, provide a workaround, or refund the fees you
paid. Replacement Systems are warranted for the original System's remaining warranty period. (c) Exclusions. EVALUATION SOFTWWARE IS LICENSED ON
AS-IS BASIS AND SUBJECT TO 4(d). We will have no obligation under this limited warranty due to: (i) negligence, misuse or abuse of the System, such as
unusual physical or electrical stress, misuse or accidents; (ii) use of the System other than in accordance with the Documentation; (iii) modifications,
alterations or repairs to the System made by a party other than us or our representative; (iv) the combination, operation or use of the System with equipment,
devices, software or data not supplied by us; (v) any third party hardware or Third Party Software, whether or not provided by us; (vi) any failure other than by
us to comply with handling, operating, environmental, storage or maintenance requirements for the System in the Documentation, including, without
limitation, temperature or humidity ranges. (d) Disclaimers. We are not responsible for your software, firmware, information, or data contained in, stored on,
or integrated with any Product returned to us for repair or replacement. SUCH LIMITED WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF, AND WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM, ANY
AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE
SYSTEM WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN,
OBTAINED FROM US OR ELSEWHERE, WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT. Some jurisdictions do not allow the
exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty may last, so such exclusions may not apply to you. In that event, such implied
warranties or limitations are limited to 60 days from the date you purchased the System or the shortest period permitted by applicable law, if longer. This
warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights which vary from state to state or country to country.
5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, LICENSORS, OR SALES CHANNELS ("REPRESENTATIVES") SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO
YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST
REVENUES, PROFITS OR SAVINGS, OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, HOWEVER CAUSED, UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY,
NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER
PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, WE AND OUR REPRESENTATIVES' TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT
OR THE SYSTEM SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL PAYMENTS TO US UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE SYSTEM. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS
SHALL NOT APPLY TO DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY TO PERSONS OR TANGIBLE PROPERTY IN ANY JURISDICTION WHERE APPLICABLE LAW
PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP YOUR DATA AND FILES, AND HEREBY RELEASE US AND OUR
REPRESENTATIVES FROM ANY LIABILITY OR DAMAGES DUE TO THE LOSS OF ANY SUCH DATA OR FILES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SUCH EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
6. CONFIDENTIALITY: Information in the System and the associated media, as well as the structure, organization and code of the Software, are proprietary to
us and contain valuable trade secrets developed or acquired at great expense to us or our suppliers. You shall not disclose to others or utilize any such
information except as expressly provided herein, except for information (i) lawfully received by the user from a third party which is not subject to
confidentiality obligations; (ii) generally available to the public without breach of this Agreement; (iii) lawfully known to the user prior to its receipt of the
System; or (iv) required by law to be disclosed.
7. SUPPORT: Updates, upgrades, fixes, maintenance or support for the System (an "Upgrade") after the limited warranty period may be available at separate
terms and fees from us. Any Upgrades shall be subject to this Agreement, except for additional or inconsistent terms we specify. Upgrades do not extend the
limited warranty period.
8. TERM; TERMINATION: The term of this Agreement shall continue unless terminated in accordance with this Section. We may terminate this Agreement at
any time upon default by you of the license provisions of this Agreement, or any other material default by you of this Agreement not cured with thirty (30)
days after written notice thereof. You may terminate this Agreement any time by terminating use of the System. Except for the first sentence of Section 2
("License") and for Section 4(a) ("Limited Warranty"), all provisions of this Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement. Upon any such termination,
you shall certify in writing such termination and non-use to us.

prohibited by the United States Export Administration Act or any other export laws, restrictions, or regulations (the "Export Laws"). You will indemnify, defend
and hold us harmless from any and all claims arising therefrom or relating thereto. In addition, if the Products or Software are identified as export controlled
items under the Export Laws, you represent and warrant that you are not a citizen, or otherwise located within, an embargoed nation (including without
limitation Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Serbia) and that you are not otherwise prohibited under the Export Laws from receiving the
Software. All rights to the Products and Software are granted on condition that such rights are forfeited if you fail to comply with the terms of this Agreement.
10. U.S. GOVERNMENT RIGHTS: The Software and the documentation which accompanies the Software are "Commercial Items," as that term is defined at
48 C.F.R. §2.101, consisting of "Commercial Computer Software" and "Commercial Computer Software Documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R.

Commercial Computer Software and Commercial Computer Software Documentation are being licensed to U.S. Government as end users (a) only as
Commercial Items and (b) with only those rights as are granted to all other end users pursuant to the terms and conditions herein. Harmonic, 4300 North

11. GENERAL: You shall not assign, delegate or sublicense your rights or obligations under this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our
prior written consent, and any attempt without such consent shall be void. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement binds and benefits permitted
successors and assigns. This Agreement is governed by California law, without regard to its conflicts of law principles. The U.N. Convention on Contracts for
the International Sale of Goods is disclaimed. If any claim arises out of this Agreement, the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of
the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California. In addition to any other rights or remedies, we shall be entitled to injunctive and other
equitable relief, without posting bond or other security, to prevent any material breach of this Agreement. We may change the terms, conditions and pricing

relating to the future licensing of our Systems and other intellectual property rights, including this Agreement, from time to time. No waiver will be implied
from conduct or failure to enforce rights nor effective unless in a writing signed on behalf of the party against whom the waiver is asserted. If any part of this
Agreement is found unenforceable, the remaining parts will be enforced to the maximum extent permitted. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this
Agreement. We are not bound by additional and/or conflicting provisions in any order, acceptance, or other correspondence unless we expressly agree in
writing. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of agreement between the parties as to its subject matter and supersedes all proposals or
prior agreements, verbal or written, advertising, representations or communications concerning the System.

Airflow
The airflow through the encoder is critical for maintaining the proper temperature range. Fans
in the chassis draw air in through the front bezel and through the encoder. The airflow
ventilates out the right side (front view).
CAUTION: Do not obstruct the airflow of the encoder. Severe equipment damage can result when
the encoder cannot properly exhaust the airflow.
Attaching the Rack Rails
Attach the side-mount rack rails to the rack to hold the encoder in place. Figure 2–1 illustrates
the parts of the rack rails.
Figure 2–1: Rack Rails
To attach the rack rails to the rack:
1. If needed, place a Tinnerman™ speed nut with the nut on the outside of the rack over the
holes to which you would like to mount the rails.
NOTE: Each of the four rack posts requires two speed nuts.
2. Position the rack rails so the shelves are toward the inside of the rack.
3. Using the #10 screws provided with the encoder, screw the mounts into the speed nuts
from the inside of the rack using the rack-mount holes that line up with the holes on the
rack posts.
Figure 2–2 illustrates attaching the rails.

Chapter 2 Installing the Encoder
Installing the Encoder in a Rack
Figure 2–2: Attaching the Rails to the Rack
CAUTION: Make sure to install the rack rails with the shelf at the top of the rail. If you install the
rail upside down, the rail blocks the encoder air vents, which can result in overheating the encoder.
Mounting the Encoder
CAUTION: Rack mount the encoder using the screws that came with your Harmonic rail kit. If you
did not purchase a Harmonic rail kit, use a rack-mount screw with a head no larger than 0.4 inches in
diameter and 0.14 inches in height to avoid damaging the front panel of the encoder. (Some encoders
may come with a peel-away sticker that advises on the correct screw size.) Using only the bottom two
screw holes will be sufficient.
To mount the encoder in a rack:
1. Using both hands, grasp the right corner of the front bezel and slowly pull to detach the
hinge on the left side of the encoder and expose the mount holes. See Figure 2–3.
DANGER: The front panel display on the encoder is susceptible to electrostatic discharge (ESD) when
the bezel is removed. Wear the appropriate ESD protection when the bezel is removed.
2. Gently slide the encoder to rest on the rack rails.
3. Push the encoder back until the rack-mount holes in the front of the encoder line up with
the rack posts.
4. Insert four screws through the mount holes in the front of the encoder to the
corresponding holes on the rack posts.
5. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver.

For RJ-45 pinouts, see RJ-45 Ethernet Port Pinouts.
NOTE: The network hosting the IP output traffic should be a different network from your
management network.
The 10/100 test port on the front panel is for testing use only and should not be used as a
management port.
Connecting the Fault Relay/General Purpose Interface (GPI) Ports
Fault Relay
A contact closure is a physical connection between two platforms that defines the state of the
platform as either on or off. The Electra 9200 can signal a fault through a fault relay (contact
closure) for an external device. NMX communicates with the encoder via Ethernet and does
not use this function. The fault relay port connects to a Form C relay that can switch up to
0.25 A at 30 VDC.
The encoder energizes the fault relay during normal operation. The fault condition is indicated
in the same way as the encoder's powered-off condition, which is with the relay de-energized.
You can use this method to correctly identify a power supply failure or loss of input power.
The signals are normally open or normally closed.
NOTE: Any alarm causes the fault relay to change to the fault state. When multiple alarms
accumulate, all alarms must be active for the relay state to change.
GPI Ports
The GPI ports can be used for DPI input to the Electra 9200 and Ion-based encoders when a
contact closure is created. There are four GPI contacts. Each is independent and can be
provisioned to any one channel and multiple available channels.
To activate a contact closure:
1. Insert the individual wires needed into the contacts:
The first three ports are for fault relay, while the inputs labeled 1 through 4 are GPI ports.
2. Ground the wires to the ground pin (the last pin on the right) to activate a contact closure.
When configured in the DPI properties page of NMX, an SCTE35 message is sent out
when that pin is set to low.

perform all encoder configuration, including IP address assignment, in NMX. You do not need
to do any configuration from the encoder front panel.
See the NMX online help for instructions on adding an encoder to an NMX network group.
You will need to know the encoder MAC address when you add the encoder to a network
group. See Front Panel Display for instructions on viewing the MAC address in the front panel
display.
While you can perform all platform and configuration tasks from NMX, you will use Harmonic
NodeLock License Manager to manage any feature license additions/deletions. For
information about feature licensing on the Electra 9200, see Licensing Information.
Operating in Standalone Mode
Stand-alone mode and Stand-alone Web GUI is not supported in the current releases of
Electra 9200.

Licensing Information
Licensing Information
Licensing is required for some encoding features, and you cannot enable those features
without the appropriate licensing. You can add licenses to your system using the Harmonic
NLM 4.0 (NodeLock License Manager). Most licenses are permanent—once enabled the
feature will continue to function without raising license-related alarms. A small set of licenses
are time-limited and have different behavior, as follows:
n
Streams that include features under license will raise alarms when their licensing expires.
n
When licenses expire, streams will continue to flow as configured, but cannot be modified
or re-enabled if disabled for any reason.
n
If any changes are made after a license expires, service may be affected, and other
operations, such as redundancy, may not function properly.
n
If a license is not installed for a feature that is enabled, a grace period will allow that
function to operate fully for 45 days. Alarms will issue each day to advise you that
licensing is required for a given feature.
n
If the 45-day grace period has been used temporarily, the 45-day period will
incrementally renew as long as there are no unlicensed features enabled.
In NLM 4.0 (NodeLock License Manager), you can:
n
Add licenses to your Harmonic device.
n
Remove licenses from your Harmonic device.
For a complete instructions on how to use NLM 4.0 (NodeLock License Manager), please
refer to the NLM 4.0 online help, packaged with your Harmonic device.

DiviTrack Features
DiviTrackIP Support
DiviTrackIP statistical multiplexing provides high-performance video compression when
multiple channels share a specified bandwidth. The system maintains the overall pool
bandwidth at a constant bit rate while allocating to individual channels the optimum number
of bits on a frame-by-frame basis, driven by picture complexity information from the
LookAhead™ analysis. By assigning priorities, you can specify channels that must maintain a
high quality when stress on the system increases.
The Electra 9200 encoder works in conjunction with NMX and a ProStream™ 1000 to
support DiviTrackIP. The ProStream 1000 analyzes the complexity of all incoming video
streams and sends messages to the encoders through the IP network. All streams from an
Electra 9200 encoder must be sent to the same ProStream 1000. MPTS (multiple STC clocks
per chassis) is also supported.
Table 4–9 provides DiviTrack IP pool specifications. See the NMX help for information about
configuring DiviTrackIP.

Closed Captions Support
DiviTrackMX Support
The Electra 9200 encoder supports DiviTrackMX. DiviTrackMX™ statistical multiplexing
technology is integrated into the Electra 9200, allowing operators to deliver highly efficient
VBR services without the need for any additional equipment.
Closed Captions Support
The CEA-708/608 captions include space for CEA-608 data and the encoder can receive
them either via serial port (SMPTE 333M compliant, one service per chassis) or in VANC
(SMPTE 334-1 compliant, one service per encoder card mounted). The Electra™ 9200 also
supports VANC-708/CEA-708 ATSC (SMPTE334/A53). For a complete list of closed caption
resolutions see the NMX online help.
Japanese Standard Closed-Captions Support
The Electra™ 9200 provides support for Japanese standard captions as well as the existing
support for CEA-708 captions via SMPTE 333 and SMPTE 334-1 inputs. The Electra™ 9200
encoder supports the closed-caption feature where the closed-caption data is generated
within the ancillary data space and is extracted by the encoder for processing. The Vertical
Ancillary Data Space (VANC) packets also adhere to the ARIB STD-B37 standard (Structure
and Operation of Closed Caption Data Conveyed by Ancillary Data Packets).
Digital Program Insertion Support
The Electra 9200 encoder supports digital program insertion (DPI). Electra 9200 accepts
external automation system DPI commands (triggers) via Ethernet. These commands are sent
via the SCTE 104 protocol, and result in the encoder (as well as the NMX DPI server) placing
SCTE 35 DPI messages in the outgoing MPEG Transport Stream (TS).
NOTE: This encoder also accepts commands via SCTE 104 protocol embedded in the VANC. DTMF and
Contact Closure (back panel connector) can also be used to trigger DPI.
The resulting messages carry metadata used by downstream content insertion equipment to
choose and insert the proper content. When using an external automation system, that
system provides the metadata values via the SCTE 104 commands. The metadata is included
in the resulting SCTE 35 messages, which are placed in the outgoing MPEG Transport Stream.
HHP Support
Harmonic Heartbeat Protocol (HHP) is a proprietary Harmonic protocol used to prevent
duplicate IP output after a redundancy switch and to initiate a redundancy switch in some
1×1 hot backup scenarios. HHP packets are sent over a unique multicast address on the
video IP network.
In some redundancy switches, NMX may not be able to shut down the IP output from the
primary device. For example, if the connection between the device and NMX is lost, NMX
issues a time-out alarm for the device and provisions the backup device with the circuits from
the primary device. However, the primary device may still be operating normally even though
it lost communication with NMX. In this case, you now have two devices sending the same
output.
© 2015 Harmonic Inc. All rights reserved.
35
Electra 9200, Rev O
Chapter 4 Electra 9200 Specifications
HHP Support
To prevent this scenario, enable HHP. When you enable HHP, a backup device taking over in
a redundancy switching event sends a command (over a unique multicast address on the
video IP network) to turn off the outputs of the formerly active device. During a redundancy
switch, the backup device assumes all responsibilities of the primary device, including
sending HHP messages at the same multicast address.
If a primary device detects HHP messages sent to its multicast IP address, it immediately
backs off and stops sending output. This leaves the backup device free to operate without the
primary device sending the same output.
In 1×1 hot backup configurations, the HHP protocol can also initiate a redundancy switch. In
this case, the backup device monitors the primary device by listening for HHP messages. If
the backup device does not detect an HHP message from the primary device during a
specified interval, it initiates a redundancy switch and assumes operation as the primary
device.
NOTE: HHP and IGMP version 3 are not compatible at this time.

Air Filter
The encoder uses an air filter to minimize dust and dirt in the circuitry and components in the
chassis. The filter is made of flexible, open cell polyurethane foam, which is specially coated
to provide flame and fungus resistance. It is enclosed in a sheet metal frame that slides from
the top of the unit and is located directly in front of the air vents in the fan cage at the front of
the encoder. The filter is fire retardant and conforms to UL 900 Class 2 and UL 94 HF-1
specifications.
Maintaining the Air Filter
The operating environment of the encoder plays a large factor in determining the life of the
air filter. Encoders that operate in dusty and dirty surroundings require more frequent
inspections and filter cleaning than those operating in cleaner environments.
Inspect and clean the filter with a frequency that is appropriate to the environment in which
the encoder operates. Harmonic recommends inspecting and cleaning the filter every six
weeks to ensure proper airflow through the chassis.
To clean dust and dirt from the filters, you can use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust. If a
filter is not cleanable, replacement filters may be ordered from Harmonic.

AHC-RAC Module
Note the following limitations:
n
ATSC Standard A/53 specifies that only 48 kHz sampling may be used, and that ES bit
rates must be less than or equal to 384 Kbps for a complete service. It also specifies that
a two-channel dialog-only service must be less than or equal to 192 Kbps. Total audio ES
rate per service must be less than or equal to 512 Kbps.
n
Embedded audio must be 48 kHz sampling and synchronous with the video. See SMPTE
272M for definitions.
MPEG AAC and HE AAC can be placed into the output Transport Stream encapsulated in
either of two methods:
n
ADTS
ADTS is an acronym for “Audio Data Transport Stream.” This is the default used if the user
selects MPEG-2 AAC/HE AAC. ADTS is assigned a stream type of 0x0F.
n
LATM/LOAS
LATM is an acronym for ”Low Overhead Audio Transport Multiplex.” LOAS is an acronym
for ”Low Overhead Audio Stream,” and furnishes an outer wrapper for LATM's inner
wrapper of the raw audio Elementary Stream syntax. MPEG-4 AAC and HE AAC
bitstreams are encapsulated as LATM/LOAS and assigned a stream type value of
0x11.Encapsulation mode is controlled by selecting ”MPEG-2” or ”MPEG-4” as required.
Stream Density
IOM-RAC2 supports decoding, leveling, and encoding of 16 streams (with no more than eight
streams of 5.1), for example, eight streams of 5.1 plus eight streams of 2.0 are allowed.
Level Magic™ Dynamic Audio Leveling
Audio leveling is also supported by the IOM-RAC2 audio module.
Dynamic leveling uses the same technology found in Jünger Audio’s Level Magic™ hardware
based processors. Level Magic is a trademark of Jünger Audio Studiotechnik GmbH. The
dynamic leveling option requires a firmware license.
AHC-RAC Module
The AHC-RAC module has four BNC connectors, which support AES3 and S/PDIF inputs. The
audio module also includes an RJ45 connector that can be used to supply Dolby serial audio
metadata (this is not an Ethernet connector). The AHC-RAC module uses the first three of the
four BNC connectors for 5.1 applications, or one connector per service for stereo
applications, The 4th BNC connector is unused. Up to five AHC-RAC cards can be installed in
a chassis.

Introduction
The Harmonic FLEX-1 decoder module performs video and audio decoding of compressed
input and output decoded elementary streams directly to the encoder audio/video
processing cards. A single FLEX-1 Module is able to decode up to two incoming channels,
and an appropriately configured encoder can support up to two FLEX-1 Modules delivering
up to four channels in a single rack-unit (1-RU).
The FLEX-1 Module decodes MPEG-2 or AVC in both standard definition (SD) or high
definition (HD) formats, thereby eliminating the dependency on ingress formats. The FLEX-1
Module is a unique gateway designed with the flexibility to deliver any type of precompressed video to any host encoder.
NOTE: AHC-561 card is not supported for use with FLEX-1 Modules.
The FLEX-1 Module decodes compressed streams delivered over IP, ASI, or RF (8VSB) input
from optional modules installed in the encoder chassis. See section Connecting the IP Input
Cables, Chapter 8, ASI Module, and Chapter 9, ATSC RF Input Module for descriptions and cabling
instructions for these input options.
NOTE: The FLEX-1 Module does not descramble or reconstruct all audio and ancillary data services
(such as VBI).
You configure the FLEX-1 Module and the services it provisions using the NMX Digital
Service Manager application, as described in Chapter 3, Operating the Encoder.

Appendix A Encoder Physical Specifications
Fault Relay/General Purpose Interface (GPI) Ports
Fault Relay/General Purpose Interface (GPI) Ports
Fault Relay
A contact closure is a physical connection between two platforms that defines the state of the
platform as either on or off. The Electra 9200 can signal a fault through a fault relay (contact
closure) for an external device. NMX communicates with the encoder via Ethernet and does
not use this function. The fault relay port connects to a Form C relay that can switch up to
0.25 A at 30 VDC.
The encoder energizes the fault relay during normal operation. The fault condition is indicated
in the same way as the encoder’s powered-off condition, which is with the relay de-energized.
You can use this method to correctly identify a power supply failure or loss of input power.
The labels of the fault relay connections, Normally open (NO) or Normally closed (NC),
indicate the non-fault state of the relay. In other words, when the encoder is running normally
without faults, the NO connection is open, and the NC connection is closed. When there is a
fault, the NO connection changes to closed, and the NC connection changes to open.
NOTE: Any alarm causes the fault relay to change to the fault state. When multiple alarms
accumulate, all alarms must be resolved for the relay state to change.
GPI Ports
The GPI ports can be used for DPI input to the Electra 9200 and Ion-based encoders when a
contact closure is created. There are four GPI contacts. Each is independent and can be
provisioned to any one channel and multiple available channels.
To activate a contact closure:
1. Insert the individual wires needed into the contacts:
The first three ports are for fault relay, while the inputs labeled 1 through 4 are GPI ports.
2. Ground the wires to the ground pin (the last pin on the right) to activate a contact closure.
When configured in the DPI properties page of NMX, an SCTE35 message is sent out
when that pin is set to low.

NOTE: Changing from non-single-channel mode to single-channel mode provisions the transport bit
rate automatically.
When you change between single-channel and non-single-channel modes, the encoder
automatically provisions the bit rate to the closest available bit rate. In some cases, this means
the bit rate is lower because provisioning does not increase the bit rate defined for the port.
Therefore, changing the coding mode from non-single-channel mode to any of the four
highest bit rates causes the encoder to provision the bit rate to 192 Kbps.
In the case of the three lowest bit rates, when you change from single-channel to non-singlechannel mode, because the bit rate is the lowest available, the encoder provisions to the next
highest available bit rate, 64 Kbps. If you set the bit rate to 80 Kbps and then change the
coding mode to non-single-channel, the encoder provisions the bit rate to 64 Kbps.
AAC Audio
The following table lists the bit rates for MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)
and HE AAC audio compression at 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 32 kHz.

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals) (EC 1907/2006) is a
European Union’s regulation on chemicals and their safe use which came into force in June, 2007.
Harmonic supports the basic aim of REACH in improving the protection of human health and
environment through the better and earlier identification of intrinsic properties of chemical
substances. Harmonic products are considered “articles” under REACH; therefore, we are
required to provide recipients of our products with information on Substance of Very High
Concern (SVHC) present in concentration above 0.1% (w/w).
Substances in our products are not intended to be released under normal or reasonably
foreseeable conditions of use; therefore, the registration requirement in REACH Article 7(1) does
not apply to our products.
For more information, please visit REACH regulation page at official EU website.
http://ec.europa.eu/environment/chemicals/reach/reach_en.htm
China RoHS
China’s regulation on restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances commonly (China
RoHS), is applicable to all Electronic and Information Products (EIPs) and parts sold in China after
March 01, 2007. China RoHS regulation restricts the use of the same six substances as the
European Union’s ROHS, but has requirements for product labeling and regulated substance
information disclosure.
Harmonic complies with China RoHS Phase I for labeling and information disclosure requirements
and continues to monitor new developments in China RoHS Phase II towards substance restriction
and certification program.

Other RoHS and REACH type Regulations
Harmonic will comply with RoHS and REACH type regulations evolving in other countries, if they
become relevant to our products or in markets where we sell our products.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
European Parliament and the Council of the European Union’s WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC)
came into force on August, 2005 and, were more recently amended in July, 2012. This directive
encourages the reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE and to improve the environmental
performance of all operators involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment,
especially those dealing with WEEE. Harmonic ensures that all requirements for registration,
reporting, design and data tracking are complied with to meet the objectives of the WEEE
directive.

Battery Directive
In September 2006, the European Union’s Directive 2006/66/EC (Battery Directive) came into
force with an aim to prohibit the sale of batteries and accumulators containing hazardous
substances and to set rules and promote collection, treatment, recycling and disposal of waste
batteries and accumulators. This directive applies to spent batteries collected together with WEEE
and requires their removal and separate collection. Once removed from WEEE, spent batteries are
governed by the Battery Directive. Harmonic uses lithium batteries in its products and our
responsibility under the Battery Directive is taken care of under our WEEE Take-Back program.
For more information, please visit Batteries and Accumulators directive page at official EU
website.

Harmonic is committed to manufacturing environmentally safe products for the community, and
will make reasonable efforts and required adjustments to its practices, if necessary, to comply
with various environmental directives and industry initiatives on the elimination of hazardous

our products.
