NOTE: The metal shell of both the plug (SFP+‐TPA‐HCB‐P) and receptacle (SFP+‐TPA‐MCB‐R) connectors tie high‐speed ground to chassis ground. The low‐speed 12‐position receptacle and plug connectors are keyed and latching (Molex part number 43645‐1200 for the plug TPA and 43650‐1204 for the receptacle TPA). The mating connector housings and contact pins for 26‐30awg wire are Molex part number 43640‐1201 for the 12‐position housing and 43031‐0011 for the plug contacts used with the plug TPA, and Molex part number 43645‐1200 for the 12‐position housing and 43030‐011 for the receptacle contacts used with the receptacle TPA. Replacement parts can be purchased through Molex distributors. NOTE: The receiver SMA connections for SFP+ are normally AC coupled. The SFP+ plug and receptacle TPAs do NOT have internal DC Blocks. This allows for parametric testing through the TPAs. Normal testing may require DC Blocks (May be optionally ordered from Wilder Technologies). Refer to the Electrical Specifications section of this document for DC Block performance parameters. P a g e | 4 ©2011, 2012, 2013 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0019‐000 Rev.

Use the foam‐lined instrument‐case for secure storage of the Wilder Technologies SFP+ Test Adapter when not in use. Locate the shipping list and verify that all items ordered were received. In the unlikely event that the product is defective or incomplete, the “Limited Warranty” section discusses how to contact Wilder Technologies for technical assistance and/or how to package the product for return. P a g e | 5 ©2011, 2012, 2013 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0019‐000 Rev. D SFP+ Test Adapter User Manual The SFP+ Test Adapter Care and Handling Precautions The SFP+ Test Adapter requires careful handling to avoid damage. Improper handling techniques, or using too small a cable bend radius, can damage the coaxial cable connections within the adapter housing or the cables themselves. This can occur at any point along the cable. To achieve optimum performance and to prolong the SFP+ TPA’s life, observe the following handling precautions: 



CAUTION 1: Avoid Torque Forces (Twisting) While individual coaxial cables within the test adapter have some rotational freedom, twisting the SFP+ TPA as a unit, with one end held stationary, may damage or severely degrade performance. Adherence to Caution 5 (below) helps to avoid twisting. CAUTION 2: Avoid Sharp Cable Bends Never bend coaxial cables into a radius of 26 mm (1‐inch) or less. Never bend cables greater than 90°. Single or multiple cable bends must be kept within this limit. Bending the SFP+ TPA cables less than a 26mm (1‐Inch) radius will permanently damage or severely degrade test adapter performance. CAUTION 3: Avoid Cable Tension (Pull Forces) Never apply tension (pull forces) to an individual coaxial cable that is greater than 2.3 kg (5 lbs.). To avoid applying tension, always place accessories and equipment on a surface that allows adjustment to eliminate tension on the SFP+ TPA and cables. Use adjustable elevation stands or apparatus to accurately place and support the SFP+ TPA. CAUTION 4: Connect the SFP+ TPA First To prevent twisting, bending, or applying tension to the coaxial cables when connecting a SFP+ TPA, always attach the SFP+ TPA to the device under test (DUT) or cable under test before attaching any SMA connectors. Carefully align the SFP+ connectors and then gently push the connectors together until fully seated. If the SFP+ TPA must be turned or twisted to make connection to the DUT, avoid using the SFP+ TPA housing alone to make this occur. Try to distribute the torque forces along the length of the test setup and cabling. If this is not possible, it is recommended to first loosen or disconnect the SMA connections at the SFP+ TPA, make the connection to the DUT and then re‐tighten or attach the test equipment leads. NOTE: Only grip the test adapter housing when inserting or extracting the SFP+ TPA to or from the DUT. Pulling directly on the SFP+ TPA cables or using them to insert the SFP+ TPA may cause damage. 
CAUTION 5: Carefully Make SMA Connections To connect the SFP+ TPA SMA connectors, follow these steps: 1.
Hold the cable stationary by grasping the cable at the black heat‐shrink section near the SMA connector. 2.
Insert the mating SMA barrel and hand‐tighten the free‐spinning SMA nut onto the connector while avoiding pulling, bending, or twisting the SFP+ TPA coaxial cable. P a g e | 6 ©2011, 2012, 2013 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0019‐000 Rev. D SFP+ Test Adapter User Manual 3.
The SFP+ TPA SMA connectors have flats that accept an open‐end 5/16‐inch wrench. When attaching instrument cables to the SFP+ TPA, it is recommended that the SFP+ TPA SMA connectors be mechanically held and the test leads be tightened to the equipment manufacturer’s torque recommendations, normally 5 in‐lbs, using a 5/16‐inch open‐end wrench. If the test set‐up requires repositioning, first loosen or disconnect the SMA connections to avoid twisting, bending, or tension. NOTE: A drop in signal amplitude by half or 6db during the testing of a channel may indicate that a cable has been mechanically pulled free of coaxial cable connections internal to the assembly. This could be determined by checking if the cable has any lateral play relative to the TPA. This would only occur when the TPA has exceeded the pull force as specified within the mechanical specification. If the cable cannot be re‐seated, the test adapter will need to be sent back to the factory for service. 

CAUTION 6: Independently Support Instrument Cables or Accessories Excessive weight from instrument cables and/or accessories connected to the SFP+ TPA can cause damage or affect the test adapter performance. Be sure to provide appropriate means to support and stabilize all test set‐up components. CAUTION 7: The SFP+‐TPA‐MCB‐R Switch Module is ESD Sensitive The SFP+‐TPA‐MCB‐R Switch Module assembly incorporates electrostatic sensitive components. Additionally, when an active DUT is installed, that device also becomes susceptible to ESD. Observe proper ESD precautions, further discussed later in this document. P a g e | 7 ©2011, 2012, 2013 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0019‐000 Rev. D SFP+ Test Adapter User Manual General Test Adapter, Cable, and Connector Observing simple precautions can ensure accurate and reliable measurements. Handling and Storage Before each use of the SFP+ TPA, ensure that all connectors are clean. Handle all cables carefully and store the SFP+ TPA in the foam‐lined instrument case when not in use, if possible. Do not set connectors contact end down. Install the SMA protective end caps when the SFP+ TPA is not in use. Visual Inspection Be sure to inspect all cables carefully before making a connection. Inspect all cables for metal particles, scratches, deformed threads, dents, or bent, broken, or misaligned center conductors. Do not use damaged cables. Cleaning If necessary, clean the connectors using low‐pressure (less than 60 PSI) compressed air or nitrogen with an effective oil‐vapor filter and condensation trap. Clean the cable threads, if necessary, using a lint‐free swab or cleaning cloth moistened with isopropyl alcohol. Always completely dry a connector before use. Do not use abrasives to clean the connectors. Re‐
inspect connectors, making sure no particles or residue remains. Making Connections Before making any connections, review the “Care and Handling Precautions” section. Follow these guidelines when making connections: 






Align cables carefully Make preliminary connection lightly To tighten, turn connector nut only Do not apply bending force to cable Do not over‐tighten preliminary connections Do not twist or screw‐in cables Use a torque wrench, and do not tighten past the “break” point of the torque wrench P a g e | 8 ©2011, 2012, 2013 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0019‐000 Rev. D SFP+ Test Adapter User Manual Electrostatic Discharge Information Protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) is essential while connecting, inspecting, or cleaning the SFP+ TPA test adapter and connectors attached to a static‐sensitive circuit (such as those found in test sets). Electrostatic discharge can damage or destroy electronic components. Be sure to perform all work on electronic assemblies at a static‐safe work station, using two types of ESD protection: 

Conductive table‐mat and wrist‐strap combination Conductive floor‐mat and heel‐strap combination When used together, both of these types provide a significant level of ESD protection. Used alone, the table‐mat and wrist‐strap combination provide adequate ESD protection. To ensure user safety, the static‐safe accessories must provide at least 1 MΩ of isolation from ground. Acceptable ESD accessories may be purchased from a local supplier. WARNING: These techniques for a static‐safe work station should not be used when working on circuitry with a voltage potential greater than 500 volts.
