SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

1 Product overview

Professional broadcast installations often include a number of tape recorders and other devices that require RS-422 machine control for remote operation. To meet these requirements, Nevion introduce the Sublime SL-D32P+ Expandable Ported Data Router.

Complex installations, cable cost and system design is kept at a minimum.

Where user friendliness and operational flexibility is appreciated, the SL-D32P+ will fit in perfectly.

The Ported Data Routers are bidirectional “ports” rather than “XY”. A traditional 32x32 router will have a total of 64 connectors (32 in/32 out). A ported 32 Router will have a maximum of

32 connectors, all configurable to be operated either as Controller or Device.

In the SL-D32P+ Ported Data Router the terms Controller and Device are used instead of

In/Out, Source/Destination. I.e. a Ported Data Router Controller can be both signal Source or

Destination.

SL-D32P+ can be bundled together to for 64/96/128 ports.

All ports are coupled according to SMPTE 207M machine control standard.

3 Configuration

It is possible to use the router out-of-the-box. Changes to the factory settings can be set with the dip-switches found in the back of the router.

As factory setting, the SL-D32P+ is shipped with Dynamic ports. This means every port can be controller or device depending on the connected equipment.

Full access to the Sublime SL-D32P+ Ported Data Router configuration is achieved with the

Nevion Configurator in combination with the dip-switches.

3.1 Nevion Configurator

The Nevion Configurator is a unified configuration tool for routers interconnected over

Ethernet. The Nevion Configurator makes system set-up easy and includes a wizard to guide you through the set-up procedures. When scanning the network, the Nevion Configurator auto detects all connected hardware. It also provides interactive help, giving Auto Feedback on non-logical settings.

For more information about the Nevion Configurator and its advanced configuration possibilities, please use the interactive help menus included in the software.

Dynamic: The Controller/Device is according to the connected units itself.

Fixed: The Port can be set to either be Controller (Master) or Device (Slave). nevion.com | 7

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

3.2 Configuration switches

You will find 2 x 10 Dip-switches on the backplane of the router. These are for configuration purposes.

3.2.1 Router level

Switches 1 - 4 set the router level and the Physical Address for this unit. By setting routers and Control Panels on same level, routers can be controlled as “one”, i.e. Audio-follow-

Video.

Bundled SL-D32P+ routers (up to 4 units) must have the same address/level setting in order to be operated as one router.

For more information on Physical Addresses, see the section for re-Mapping in the Nevion

Configurator or the Modular Protocol documentation found on the www.nevion.com

.

THOR and panels in a NCB loop must be configured to the same level as the router(s).

The levels/Physical Addresses can be set according to the following pattern:

3.2.3 XY Mode

If The SL-D32P+ Ported Data Router is to be configured as a D1616, D3232, D4848 or

D6464 router, this DIP must be ON. In this mode SL-D32P+ will be identical with the existing

VikinX D1616 and D3232 Data Router. nevion.com | 8

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

Default mode is OFF.

The RS422 ports on the SL-D32P+ are labeled from 1 to 32. When multiple routers are connected together to form a bigger router, the ports are used as the tables below.

Mode 1 switches all ports are disconnected.

Mode 2 switches all ports according to the latest setting buffered in the routers processor system.

The power up mode can be switched according to the following pattern:

SW 8

Mode 1

Default is OFF.

3.2.6 Router orientation

X-point commands in control protocols are using source and destination when controlling routers. This must be mapped to ports in the router. When controlling RS-422, every port is nevion.com | 9

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3 bi-directional and includes both a source and a destination. The mapping is different in XY mode and ported mode.

3.2.6.1 Router orientation in ported mode

By default, the router is "destination oriented" (DIP is OFF). A bi-directional connection is made between the two ports. If both ports are configured as dynamic, the port referred as source will be used as a controller and the port referred as destination will be used as a device.

When the router is "source oriented" (DIP is ON) the mapping is different. If both ports are configured as dynamic, the port referred as source will be used as a device and the port referred as destination will be used as a controller. This makes it possible to use a single-bus panel to select one-of-several machines to control from a single location.

3.2.6.2 Router orientation in XY mode

In XY mode all ports are fixed; port 1-16 as controllers and port 17-32 as devices. The control system will see the router as a 16x16 matrix.

When the router is "destination oriented" destinations 1-16 are mapped to ports 17-32 while sources 1-16 are mapped to ports 1-16.

When the router is "source oriented" destinations 1-16 are mapped to ports 1-16 while sources 1-16 are mapped to ports 17-32.

As in ported mode this makes it possible to use a single-bus panel to select one-of-several machines to control from a single location.

Switch 9 on the configuration switch defines the router orientation.

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

3.3 Configuring protocol options

For various reasons, Nevion has decided to make it possible to turn the extra commands that were added to the NCB protocol when we introduced the Sublime router range either off or on.

At the same time, the user must select whether he/she shall use the RS-232 port for controlling the router or the Ethernet port. This is done in order to prevent both ports from simultaneously being applied for controlling the router.

There is a new Protocol field in the Nevion Configurator where you may choose from the following options;

NCB without Sublime ext. (RS232)

This is the “old” Compact NCB protocol, without Sublime extensions. If used on a

Sublime, it also disables the Ethernet port of that device.

NCB (RS232)

This is the regular Sublime protocol, with the extra commands that were added to the

NCB protocol. If used on a Sublime, it also disables the Ethernet port of that device.

This is the default option for the Sublime range of products.

This protocol is similar to the Triton protocol, allowing users to connect the

Sublime device to a Jupiter VM 3000 System Controller.

MRP (TCP/IP)

This option is only applicable to the Sublime range. It selects the Ethernet protocol as the control option, and disables the RS-232 port of that device.

Note that the above selection is only possible if you have Sublime FW rel. 2.1.1 or newer installed on your Sublime device, and Nevion Configurator rel. 3.3.5 or newer installed on your PC.

It is NOT possible to select protocol options on Sublimes with HW Rev. 1.

MRP is always enabled when any TCP/IP based protocol is selected. This makes it possible to use Sublime panels when a third party protocol is selected.

Leitch Pass-Through (RS-232)

This option allows support for Leitch Pass-Through protocol via RS-232 interface. The details of this protocol are described in Leitch Routing Switchers Serial Protocol

Reference, Edition E. See also Appendix B.1 for details.

This option is not supported over NCB.

Leitch Pass-Through (TCP/IP)

This option allows support for Leitch Pass-Through protocol via TCP/IP interface. The details of this protocol are described in Leitch Routing Switchers Serial Protocol

Reference, Edition E.

The interface is using port 23 for this protocol option; same port as for Telnet

applications. See also Appendix B.1 for details.

The Leitch Pass-Through selections are only available on Sublime routers with

FW version 2.4.x and higher.

Grass Valley Native protocol (TCP/IP)

This option allows support for Grass Valley Native protocol via TCP/IP interface, using port 12345. The subset of this protocol that is supported by Sublime routers is described

in Appendix B.2.

nevion.com | 11

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

The Grass Valley Native protocol is only available on Sublime routers with FW version 2.5.4 and higher.

Use your Nevion Configurator to verify the HW revision of your Sublime unit:

Right-click the column headers and select the appropriate column to be shown, if you don’t see the appropriate column in your default display.

4 LED status

4.1 Start-up

The LED located at the front of the router indicates the status of the router. At start-up, the

LED will alternate between red (R) and green (G) every 500ms for about two seconds. After the start-up sequence the LED will indicate the Alarm state of the router.

There are two LEDs located at the Ethernet bus. At start-up the boot loader is searching for update commands on the serial port for about two seconds. During this sequence both

Ethernet LEDs will be blinking. After the start-up sequence the LEDs will indicate the

Ethernet state.

4.2 Alarm states

The LED can either be red (R), green (G), yellow (Y) or have no light (N).

The LED state is here described with twenty letters, each representing 100ms, which totals to an alarm sequence of two seconds. The X indicates that the LED keeps the color it has the moment the alarm sequence begins (green, yellow or no light).

5 Router communication

You gain access to router for communication purposes by connecting either the router’s serial port to your computer and/or by using an Ethernet connection.

When multiple SL-D32P+ is connected together to make a bigger matrix, it is not necessary to connect to more the one device at a time. The commands are automatically distributed to all the devices.

5.1 Serial connection

Connection can be made through the serial port of the router; see also Chapters 2.4 and 2.5

for connection details.

The communication parameters are configurable. Please refer to the protocol documentation of the appropriate communication/control protocol.

Example: The protocol parameters of the VikinX Compact routers are as follows:

Bit rate 19200 bit/s

Data bits 8 bits

Stop bits 1

Parity: No parity

For further details concerning this protocol, please refer to the following manual:

Note that if the standard RS-232 cable specification (DCE) is followed:

A cable with Male+Male or Female+Female connectors at the cable ends is used for Rx/Tx crossed connection, and

A cable with Male+Female connectors at the cable ends is used for a straight through connection.

5.1.1 Maximum cable length (RS-232)

IEEE has specified the maximum cable length for an RS-232 connection to 15m. Longer distances can be installed depending on the environmental conditions of the installation site.

It is the responsibility of the installer / user to secure a proper installation of the

RS-232 connection. nevion.com | 14

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

5.2 Ethernet connection

The connections follow the standard set by the IEEE 802.3 100BaseTX specification. The cables that are to be applied should be CAT-5 / CAT-5E standard, or better. It is the responsibility of the installer / user to secure a proper installation of the Ethernet connection.

All VikinX Sublime routers and IP-based Control Panels are connected together through an

Ethernet Switch.

A VikinX Sublime device has only one physical Ethernet connection. If redundant control is required, this limitation has to be solved by the control system.

For Ethernet protocol details concerning this router, please refer to the following manual:

Modular Router Control Protocol. This manual can be found on our web site: http://www.nevion.com

.

5.2.1 HW limitations

With the introduction of Sublime controller HW Rev. 2, the user has the option of connecting more than two devices together, without having a Multicon to control the network. See

Chapter 0 for verification of the HW revision of your device.

Unless you apply a Multicon as a system controller, the limitations that apply are:

1. One Sublime control panel may connect to a maximum of 4 Sublime routers.

2. One Sublime router may be controlled by a maximum of 4 Sublime control panels.

Exceptions to the above limitations:

A router with a local CP (e.g. SL-V6464-CP) may only connect to 1 other router.

Both routers must be configured with the same address and be of different type

(A+V).

Example: 1x SL-V6464-CP may only control itself + 1x Audio router (AA or AES).

Both routers must be configured with the same address.

16x2 routers that are expanded to NNx2 are using the NCB bus for this purpose.

The total NNx2 router is therefore counted as 1 router in the limitations 1 and 2 above.

From limitations 1 and 2 above, the resulting Ethernet configuration may consist of maximum

8 devices; 4 routers and 4 control panels, with the exceptions mentioned above. An example is illustrated in the figure below.

Figure 1: Ethernet connections and configuration.

nevion.com | 15

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

Refer to the Nevion Configurator User Manual for further information about the above described configuration/connection options.

It is NOT possible to connect more than 2x Sublimes with HW Rev. 1 together via

Ethernet, unless a Multicon is applied as system controller.

5.3 NCB connection

Via the Network Control Bus system several routers and control panels can be interconnected.

Up to 16 levels of routers, or combinations of routers, can be controlled. The NCB system and all RS 232 ports interchange the system status. This means that any control system, either from Nevion, or from a third party manufacturer, connected to any RS 232 port in the

NCB loop, will have access to all communication data on the bus.

5.3.1 Connecting control panels

To get a control panel working with a specific router, configure the control panel to the same level as the router. Several panels can be configured to control the same router. Panels can also be connected to a router via the RS-232 interface. Please refer to your control panel manual for installation.

5.3.2 Pin-out and cable type

VikinX Sublime routers and Control Panels use RJ45 connectors for the Network Control Bus ports. The following pin-out is used:

Pin #1 Not Connected

Pin #2 Not Connected

Pin #3 Data (retour)

Pin #4 Data

Pin #5 Data

Pin #6 Data (retour)

Pin #7 Not Connected

Pin #8 Not Connected

The following connection example shows connection of 4 VikinX devices with RJ45 connectors and bus termination:

Note that each device at the end of the chain has a termination plug, indicated with the letter

T”. This termination plug must be inserted in the correct connection port. If not, no NCB communication is possible.

5.3.3 Termination plug

The termination plug that is mentioned in the previous chapter is necessary when you want to avoid closing the loop be a (long) cable.

The termination plug is a standard RJ45 plug with the following internal wiring: nevion.com | 16

SL-D32P+ Rev. 3

As seen in the figure above, Pin 3 is connected to Pin 4, and Pin 5 is connected to Pin 6.

5.3.4 Control bus structure

The Network Control Bus structure follows the standard MIDI bus definition. The NCB is defined as a closed chain of units. This means that the NCB OUT of the last unit must be connected to the NCB IN of the first unit in the NCB chain. To avoid problems with the control of VikinX units the installer/user has to assure that the bus structure is installed according to this definition.

The total number of VikinX devices in an NCB chain is limited to 50.

5.3.5 Maximum distance between NCB devices

The standard MIDI definition allows a maximum cable length of 200-250 meters between two devices. Longer distances can be made with MIDI repeater units. To avoid grounding problems all NCB ports have opto-coupled inputs.

5.4 Router extension

Use the Extension loop connectors when multiple routers are connected together to form a bigger router. Connect EXT OUT from one router to the EXT IN on the next router, and so on. Connect EXT OUT from the last router in the loop back to EXT IN on the first router in the loop.

Router extension will only work if the loop is closed, as explained above.

See also Chapter 2.5 and Chapter 3.2.8 for configuration of SL-D32P+ into bigger data

routers.

5.4.1 Maximum cable length (Coax)

Maximum cable length: 300m, using Belden 8281, or similar quality cable.

Return loss: 15dB on EXT ports.

When in loop-through (happens on a power failure), total cable length between three routers is 300m, if the router in the middle looses power. Longer extension cables between the routers are possible, if the signal is regenerated near the data router(s). This is done either through Flashlink E/O and O/E equipment, or using a Flashlink FRS-HD-CHO for the purpose of signal regeneration.

It is the responsibility of the installer / user to secure a proper installation of the

RS-232 connection. nevion.com | 17

7 Applications

7.1 Dynamic

The first example shows how to connect two Video Tape Recorders (VTRs) with traditional

AV Routers for signal transport and a SL-D32P+ Ported Data Router for RS-422 Machine

Control.

Both VTRs can be used as Player or Recorder depending on their local/remote setting.

When Data Router Ports are set to Dynamic in the Nevion Configurator, machine control will pass either way.

7.2 Fixed

The second example shows a VTR and NLE Computer (i.e. NLE =Non-Linear Editor). The units can both be Player or Recorder for audio & video, while the Computer is Controller

(Master) and always controlling the device/VTR (Slave). This leaves RS-422 Machine

Control Data to always operate in one mode, Fixed. nevion.com | 19
