The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing. No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be placed on the apparatus. “WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.” General Installation Instructions Please consider these general instructions in addition to any product‐specific instructions in the “Installation” chapter of this manual. Unpacking Check the equipment for any transport damage. If the unit is mechanically damaged, if liquids have been spilled or if objects have fallen into the unit, it must not be connected to the AC power outlet, or it must be immediately disconnected by unplugging the power cable. Repair must only be performed by trained personnel in accordance with the applicable regulations. Installation Site Install the unit in a place where the following conditions are met: 
The temperature and the relative humidity of the operating environment must be within the specified limits during operation of the unit. Values specified are applicable to the air inlets of the unit. 
Condensation may not be present during operation. If the unit is installed in a location subject to large variations of ambient temperature (e.g. in an OB‐van), appropriate precautions must be taken. 
Unobstructed air flow is essential for proper operation. Ventilation openings of the unit are a functional part of the design and must not be obstructed in any way during operation (e.g. ‐ by objects placed upon them, placement of the unit on a soft surface, or improper installation of the unit within a rack or piece of furniture). 
The unit must not be unduly exposed to external heat sources (direct sunlight, spot lights). Ambient Temperature Units and systems by FiberPlex are generally designed for an ambient temperature range (i.e. temperature of the incoming air) of +5...+40 °C. When rack mounting the units, the following facts must be considered: 
The permissible ambient temperature range for operation of the semiconductor components is 0 °C to +70 °C (commercial temperature range for operation). 
The air flow through the installation must allow exhaust air to remain cooler than 70 °C at all times. 
Average temperature increase of the cooling air shall be about 20 C°, allowing for an additional maximum 10 C° increase at the hottest components. If the cooling function of the installation must be monitored (e.g. for fan failure or illumination with spot lamps), the exhaust air temperature must be measured directly above the modules at several places within the enclosure. Grounding and Power Supply Grounding of units with mains supply (class I equipment) is performed via the protective earth (PE) conductor integrated in three pin Phoenix™ connector. Units with battery operation (< 60 V, class III equipment) must be earthed separately. Grounding the unit is one of the measures for protection against electrical shock hazard (dangerous body currents). Hazardous voltage may not only be caused by defective power supply insulation, but may also be introduced by the connected audio or control cables. This equipment may require the use of a different line cord, attachment plug, or both, depending on the available power source at installation. If the attachment plug needs to be changed, refer servicing to qualified personnel.

This page intentionally left blank Introduction Complementing the flexibility of the FiberPlex ‘TD Series’ of fiber optic modules, the TDR‐01‐AC provides mounting, power and cable management for up to 6 modules in a compact and rugged aluminum 1U rack. The integrated key‐hole mounting holes on the bottom the TD units lock securely on mating studs while a rear retention bar holds them securely in place. A 6 position wiring harness and included power adapter provide, not just 9 VDC power, but a positive earth ground to the modules via 3 position Phoenix™ locking power connectors. Managing all that cabling and fiber can sometimes be quite a chore so an extended cabling tray with integrated tie down points are provided to help make your installation clean. Key Features 

Reinforced rack ears Getting Started Initial Inspection Immediately upon receipt, inspect the shipping container for damage. The container should be retained until the shipment has been checked for completeness and the equipment has been checked mechanically and electrically. If the shipment is incomplete, if there is mechanical damage, or if the unit fails to operate notify FiberPlex and make the shipping materials available for the carrier's inspection. Chassis Mounting Mount the empty chassis using fasteners appropriate to your standard 19” rack enclosure. All four (4) mounting points MUST be utilized. Ensure that there exists adequate clearance for ventilation. The chassis should be located in an environment where an ambient temperature between 0° and 50° C can be maintained. Power Requirements Any combination of 6 FiberPlex TD Series Modules can be mounted in a TDR‐01‐AC. Each TD module can draw as much as 500 mA at 9VDC, so with the maximum 6 modules installed the maximum power requirement for a power adapter is 3A at 9V or 18 Watts. Power is supplied to the individual modules through a pre‐wired Power Harness that connects to the modules using a 3 pin Phoenix™ connector. Two pins supply the 9 VDC and the third pin connects a positive earth ground to a ground lug on the rear of the TDR‐01‐AC. For best performance it is recommended to connect the ground lug to a known good earth ground. DC power is supplied to the Power Harness through the included power adapter connected to the rear circular connector.

Figure 1 TDR‐01‐AC TDR‐01 Mounting Tray – The base tray of the TDR‐01‐AC is made from rugged anodized aluminum and features reinforced rack ears. This 1U tray has 6 pairs of studs pressed into the base to mate with the key holes on TD series modules. Phoenix™ Power Connectors – The TDR‐01‐AC comes standard with a 6 Power Harness with (6) ea position wiring harness. This harness gets its power from a standard power adapter (included) via a circular connector. Retention Bar Retention Screws & Back Shell Relief – Once the TD Series modules are securely seated on the pressed studs, the Retention Bar slides in behind them to secure the modules tightly in place. Two Retention Screws are then tightened to hold the bar. The unique design of the bar provides clearance notches for Back Shell Relief in the event that Phoenix™ back shells are desired to be installed on the wiring harness or individual power connections. These relief cuts also make inserting the power connections easier while the Retention Bar is in place. FiberPlex TD Series modules – Shown here for clarification, however they are not included. The TRD‐01‐
AC can accommodate up to 6 TD Series modules. Cable Tie Down – Six sets of 2x2 hole patterns are found along the raised rear panel of the Mounting Tray. These are provided to allow for clean management of cabling to the TD Series modules. Tie wraps can be used to secure cable bundles against the rear panel. The 2x2 pattern aligns with the hole patterns on standard Cable Tie Mounts. The left rear corner of the Mounting Tray features a cut out to allow cable egress. Earth Ground Lug – Both for general safety reasons as well as improved functionality of some signals, a positive Earth Ground is often desirable. The TDR‐01‐AC provides a Ground Lug on the rear panel that connects to the third pin of each of the 6 Phoenix™ connectors in the Power Harness tying all TD modules in the rack to Earth Ground. Circular DC Power Connection – DC power entry for the unit. This is a standard DC connection for use with the included DC wall power supply and provides power to the Power Harness.
