4.2 Mounting the connector module
The details of how the connector module is mounted, is found in the user manual for the subrack frame FR-2RU-10-2.
This manual is also available from our web site: http://nevion.com

5 Operation
5.1 Module status
The status of the module can be monitored in two ways:
1. GYDA System Controller (optional).
GYDA System Controller is a separate module giving detailed information on the card
status.
The GYDA controller is described in a separate user manual.
2. LEDs at the front of the sub-rack.
LEDs are mounted on the module itself.
The functions of the LEDs are described in sections 5.1.
5.1.1 Front panel – status monitoring
The status of the module can be easily monitored visually by the LEDs at the front of the
module. The LEDs are visible through the front panel. The LED on top tells if the DA-AES is
ok or not (green LED means ok – red is alarm). The second and third LED tells if there is an
AES stream present on one or both input channels. When data stream is present, the LED is
green. If there is no data stream, the LED is red. The functions of the different LEDs are
summarized in the table below.

5.2 Interface with GYDA and RS-422 command set
All commands follow the flashlink protocol and can be used for direct control access to the
modul. The control system can either be a GYDA-SC or a third-party control system with
integrated flashlink protocol. The module can also be manually controlled with a VT100
compatible terminal program.
The protocol can be found on our web page; http://nevion.com
