SPECTRASMART PC -- NETWORK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
SpectraSmart PC is a Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8A based Link Status
Monitoring and Diagnostic System for Meridian Technologies’ Fiber Optic
Transmission Equipment. The hardware and firmware reside in the SR2000/S2-PC Master , SR-2001/ES2-PC Expansion 19” subracks and
Universal Subrack Frames 2,3,4,6,8 Slots. The Master connects to a host PC
via RS-232 serial port, USB or Ethernet; connects vertically to nine (9)
Expansion racks and horizontally to 10 Masters (in other racks) by daisy chaining via RS-485 using expansion ports on the front of the units. Hardware
includes controllers that are used to monitor certain critical parameters within
system cards, which are plugged into the subracks.
The PC scans card and channel parameters in sequential order, checking for
levels against factory-set threshold values. If an error condition is detected, the
PC will continue to scan through system components until the error condition
has been detected 3 times. An alarm will then be generated; the nature of which
will depend on the severity of the error condition. In order to reduce the
processing time required for partially populated subracks and limit the
reporting of constant alarms (such as a camera disconnected for maintenance),
SpectraSmart will only check those system components that have been
activated, i.e. those that have been designated as operational. For a particular
channel to be monitored, it is necessary that the particular subrack within which
the card is resident must be activated. Also, the card on which the channel is
resident must also be activated as well as the channel itself. Subracks,
individual cards or individual channels can be “turned off”, if required, in order
to reduce the number of false alarms generated.
Once an alarm occurs, it is necessary to rectify the fault that caused the alarm
and reactivate the particular card and channel affected before the system is able
to continue monitoring. If the alarm persists when the channel is reactivated,
the original fault is still present or a new fault has been detected. The fault
must be rectified before the channel can be returned to full operation.
SpectraSmart PC version 4.01 and higher can monitor and diagnose not only
subracks SR-2000 / 2001 and SR-1002/SR-1350/SR-1450/SR-1460/SR1600/SR-1850 , but self healing Ring / String with multidrop modems. The PC
4
scans Master Primary / Secondary and all Slaves in sequential order and analyze
optic link condition, shows data tracing from Master to selected Slave.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT SPECTRASMART PURELY
MONITORS SYSTEM CARDS. AS LONG AS THERE IS POWER TO THE
SUBRACKS , ALL TRANSMISSION FUNCTIONS CONTROLLED BY THE
SYSTEM CARDS OPERATE INDEPENDENTLY OF THE CONDITION OF
SPECTRASMART PC.
SpectraSmart PC System Hardware
The primary component of the SpectraSmart Diagnostic System is the subrack (SR).
Subracks SR-2000/2001. The subrack is based upon industry standard 19’’
Euro rack components but has been modified in some instances to
suit operational requirements. The subrack occupies 3U of rack
space and is 277mm (10.9’’) deep and has handles which protrude
forward 40mm (1.6’’) from the mounting point.
Subracks SR-1002/1350/1450/1460/1600/1850 have a 2/3/4/4/6/8 Slots
accordingly.The chassises have many racking and mounting options,
providing a range of flexible solutions. All Meridian’s transmission
units are compatible with these racks and are manufactured with
ease of installation and can be Wall Mounted, Shelf Mounted or
Desk Mounted.
P.S.U.
The power supply units are installed into the rear of the subracks
SR-2000/2001 at the left hand side (looking from the rear). The unit
is off when the main power switch is pointing down. It is either an
100 W switched mode power supply /PS/ unit that is able to
accept mains input voltages over either 110VAC or
220/240VAC at 50/60 Hz without adjustments. The units are able
to provide sufficient power for any combination of 18 cards or up to
14 cards with PS redundancy.
The subracks SR-1xxx/S are powered by an single external switching
power supply 9V , 8,33A / Meridian model PS-60, while the SR1xxx/R chassises incorporate redundant power supplies.

Interface, Master and Slave Front Panel Layout Diagram
SpectraSmart PC can work with subracks through the Ethernet or USB by using
SpectraSmart version 4.16.11 and higher. Communication board has packed into
an RJ-45 connector device server XPort comes with a 10BASE-T/100RASE-TX
Ethernet connection. Master subrack connected to Ethernet but slaves used
driver RS485 for connecting to Master subrack and to the other slaves.
Input/Output termination resistors are usually necessary for RS-485 applications.
Without proper termination, the error rate of data transmission may be high due to an
“echo” effect on the electrical connection. With the addition of a termination resistor
at the beginning or at the end of the electrical bus, this “echo” effect is greatly
reduced. The termination resistors are 120 ohm resistors are located inside the card,
J1 connector with two jumpers: position 2,3 & 4,5)

Communication board has J2 connector with four jumpers (or one jumper with red
arrow old reference): if install in left position (direction of arrow to front panel-old
reference) there is used Ethernet connection, opposite direction - USB, RS-232 or RS485.

The extension port RJ-11(RS-485) on the bottom of the front panel of the SR2000/S2-PC Master subrack enables up to 10 other Master subracks to be daisychained to the PC. In this way, all system cards within a large Network can be
monitored from the PC.
Master communication board and Diagnostic card can be used as Slave.
Ring\String
Multidrop modem can be set on three modes : Master Primary, Master
Secondary and Slave. Master has diagnostic drivers: RS-232 for connection to
PC /socket RJ-45/ and RS-485 for extension /socket RJ11/. In Slaves mode

bits, 1 stop bit, no parity , Pack Control – Enable Packing and Idle Gap Time – 52
msec. It is possible to access SpectraSmart outside of the company’s LAN or the
Internet. In that case, the Network Administrator of the company where Subrack
18
physically located should be asked to open up TCP 10001 port for the inbound traffic
on the LAN’s firewall (if there is a firewall).
Hardware Address
You need to know the unit’s hardware address (also known as a MAC address). It is
on the product label, in the format: 00-20-4a-XX-XX-XX, where the XXs are unique
numbers assigned to the product /label on the cover of RJ-45 connector of the
communication board /.
IP Address
Each Master Subrack must have a unique Public IP address on your network
and number on the front panel 00, 10, 20 ... . Slaves are always designated as
01, 02..,11, 12.. 21, 22…and connected to Master by RS-485. The systems
administrator generally provides the IP address /static/, subnet mask, and
gateway. The IP address must be within a valid range, unique to your network,
and in the same subnet as your PC.
For assigning an IP address to your unit that you connect to the network use
DeviceInstaller software. Install program DeviceInstaller , click “Setup.Exe” in
folder “XPORT\ DeviceInstaller” on the CD . Respond to the installation wizard
prompts. Then open DeviceInstaller , click Start, Programs, Lantronix,
DeviceInstaller. For additional information look in CD folder XPort.
The unit’s IP address is normally set to 67.93.140.xxx at the factory.

Overview
SpectraSmart PC monitors the total system on 3 levels – Subrack - Card –
Channel. Any particular channel is identified initially by the subrack and then
by the card slot it is occupying. Any function that requires access to channel
configuration parameters must therefore be preceded by identifying the
subrack and card on which the specific channel is positioned.
The subrack level is the first that should be accessed in order to
identify a particular channel. Subrack parameters are always checked first
since subrack alarms are generally of a more critical mature than individual
card or channel alarms. At this level the configuration of the subrack and the
cards within the system can be examined. Sub racks can be activated or
inactivated.
1.
2.
The card - slot level is the second level that needs to be accessed
in order to identify a particular channel. Although less critical than subrack
alarms, card- slot alarms are considered more critical than individual channel
alarms.
This level allows the card - slot configuration to be viewed and also allows
card parameters to be moved in conjunction with the physical relocation of
the cards.
Card may also be activated or inactivated and a particular card within a
particular
subrack can be identified.
3.
The channel level is obviously the final level by which to identify
a particular channel. The address of the individual channel selected is
displayed and it is possible to view the status of each channel on a particular
card. Channel address can be edited and individual channels activated or
inactivated. It is also possible to select a particular channel on particular card
within any of the subracks from this menu.
40
Subrack
Up to 10 Master subracks can be installed on the system under the control of
SpectraSmart PC. The Master subrack - SR-2000 – features microcontrollers with
RS-232 and RS-485 ports. All other subracks – SR-2001/E- are designated as
Expansions and features one microcontroller with RS-485 ports. SpectraSmart
Network connection is via daisy-chaining expansion ports with the Master subrack.
Addresses are determined by an LED indicator which is set by rotary witch on the
front panel of the subrack. The addresses for the subrack should be set before they are
connected to the system and should ideally be numbered consecutively with the
Expansion connected directly to the Master being addresses as “01”. A suitable ribbon
cable to inter connect expansions is provided with each SR-2001/E. Expansions should
be connected to the Master in order - the nearest Expansion being connected first etc.
Masters are always designated as “00”, “10”, “20” etc.
The SPECTRASMART PC - NET window gives an indication of all the subracks
detected in the system and their state of activation. SpectraSmart PC automatically
recognizes the presence of any subrack connected to the Master via ribbon cable
through the expansion ports on each subrack. If a particular subrack is not present, the
entry will be “not exist”. If a subrack is present it will be shown as either “active” or
“inactive”. It is always recommended that subracks be installed with 1U air gap
between them and that forced air cooling be used within the rack cabinet. Excessive
temperature is not an immediate concern but the system has been designed to monitor
these parameters and warn of potential long term problems occurring due to excessive
component temperature.
The SPECTRASMART PC – Subrack # xx window gives a useful indication of the
configuration and activation state of all cards within a particular subrack. This screen
identifies the subrack and gives a pictorial representation of the slots with cards
installed, as if viewed from the rear of the rack. This information does not have to be
programmed into the system since SPECTRASMART PC is able to recognize the
presence of a card and its type.
In order for SpectraSmart PC to monitor each card in a subrack, the subrack itself
should be activated.
A subrack should only be inactivated during commissioning or if a subrack fault is
continuously causing alarm.
41
The SPECTRASMART PC – Subrack # XX window shows:
1. An overall view of the selected subrack from the rear showing which slots
are occupied, the type of cards within those slots and their state of activation.
2. Activate Card
Enables the activation of a particular card.
3. Inactivate Card
Enables the inactivation of a particular card.
4. Activate Channel
Enables the activation of the channel of the particular card.
5. Inactivate Channel
Enables the inactivation of the channel of the particular card.
Card
If SpectraSmart PC is to monitor the functions of a particular card, the card should
be activated. Once activated, all parameters associated with card function will
cause alarm conditions if they fall outside pre-set tolerances. Note that in order for
channel alarms to be produced, the individual channels on the card, as well as the
card itself, need to be activated.
Only in specific circumstances, when a fault cannot be repaired or when the system
is being commissioned or maintained, should a card be inactivated to stop alarms
from being reported. As soon as the fault is acknowledged and repaired or the work
on the system is completed, all cards should be reactivated. Note that SpectraSmart
PC automatically inactivates each card on which a fault occurs.
Channel
A channel is generally associated with an individual signal transmission path, so for instance
a 3-channel video receiver is considered a 3 channel card. A video and simplex data (for
PTZ) card which transmits on either 1 or 2 fibers will feature 2 channels on the SpectraSmart
PC screen. A video and duplex data will feature 3 channels on the screen. Each channel is
individually monitored for parameters appropriate to the channel’s particular function. This
information does not have to be programmed into the system since each card has a unique
P/N identifier.
42
If SpectraSmart PC is to monitor all functions of a card, individual channels
should be activated. If they are not, the scanning process bypasses the particular
channel and, if faults occur, no alarms are generated. This can cause problems if the
operator is expecting fault conditions to be reported. Equally, a card that is not
active could have a major fault that will not be apparent.
Only for specific reasons, when a fault cannot be repaired or when the system is in
the process of being commissioned or maintained, should a channel be inactivated
to prevent alarms from being continuously reported. As soon as the fault is
repaired or the work on the system is completed, all channels should be reactivated.
Note that SpectraSmart PC automatically inactivates each channel on which a fault
occurs.
The SPECTRASMART PC system allows the user to enter the unique address
/location/ to be assigned to each individual channel.
Alarm history
The Alarm History screen is an historic record of all alarms that have occurred on
the system since initialization. SpectraSmart PC checks parameters on cards in
sequence checking for variations against factory set values. Only after the card has
produced values that are out of tolerance on 3 consecutive scans is an alarm
produced. An Alarm Grid is dedicated to each alarm condition and these are
numbered consecutively in chronological order, older alarms having lower. The
data and time at which the alarm occurred, acknowledged and reinstalled is also
shown in the Grid.
Remove / Reactivate can erase this alarm and reactivate the card/channel. Note
that if the fault condition that caused the alarm still exists, the buzzer will sound
and a new alarm will be displayed. Since an alarm causes the offending channel to
be inactivated automatically, it should always be reactivated to ensure that the
particular channel continues to be monitored.
Remove w/o React this allows the Master Password holder to remove the alarm
from the system and ensure that the offending card/channel remains inactive. The
system asks for confirmation that it is acceptable. This is useful in situations when
a fault cannot be immediately rectified or if a channel is likely to be continually
producing faults during maintenance or commissioning.
43
Alarm window
The typical alarm window gives a great deal of information on the nature and
location of a particular alarm. It indicates whether the alarm is specific to a
subrack, card slot or channel and display the following details:
Source Address :
if the alarm is a channel alarm and that channel has been assigned
an address, it is displayed here.
Subrack
:
the subrack containing the fault is identified here.
Slot #
:
the card on which the fault has occurred is shown here.
Channel #
:
if the alarm is a channel alarm, the individual channel on the card is
identified here
Problem
:
the cause of the alarm is shown here
Suggestion
:
simple troubleshooting hints are displayed to enable the operator to
identify the cause or location of the fault and to take appropriate
action to rectify the problem.
ASCII export of SpectraSmart alarm conditions
This feature allows to export data of alarm conditions in ASCII format to an RS-232
COM Port of SpectraSmart PC. This ASCII information can then be shown in another
basic PC for display and analysis. Alarm message is sent to the specified COM Port, when
the alarm occurred in SpectraSmart PC.
It is supported by SpectraSmart software version 6.06.9 and higner.
If one or both PC’s don’t have RS-232 COM ports, use USB2 to RS 232 Converter /
for example Tera Grand – Premium High Speed USB 2.0 to Serial RS-232 DB-9 Converter
/. When USB to RS 232 converter is used, virtual COM Port is created, and PC, when
SpectraSmart is going be running, should be connected by standard SF cable DB9 M/F
Serial Extension Cable RS232(male to PC and female to converter. A maximum length of
this cable is 50’.
To activate this feature make the connection of PCs and run SpectraSmart program >NET window ->Configuration->Alarm Stream(ASCII) -> Settings. Set Port #, Baud Rate
- 9600bpc, Data bits – 8, Stop bits – 1, then check box “Stream Enable” to mark it, select
Header “SpS.PC”, then click “Apply”, “OK”. RS 232 create Port # in Control Panel- >
System -> Hardware->Device Manager->Port->Port#. On the basic PC, if OS is Windows
XP, open Hyper Terminal go to “Start”-> “All programs” - >”Accessories”->
”Communications”-> ”Hyper Terminal”-> ”- appears windows “New Connection – Hyper
44
terminal” and “Connection Description”. Enter a name , choose an icon and click “OK”.
Next windows “Connect to” -> select connect using Com 1, if PC has real RS-232 , or, if
converter USB-RS232 is used, find virtual COM Port number in “Control Panel”>”System”-> “Hardware”->”Device manager”->”Ports (COM&LPT”) and choose this
number in Hyperterminal, and click “OK”. Windows appears “COMx Properties “ – Port
settings: set Bits per second – 9600, Data bits – 8, Parity – None, Stop bits -1, Flow
control - None and click “OK”.
PCs with Windows 7 and higher don’t have Hyper Terminal. You can usually find a
version of Hyper Terminal on the Internet or from PC with Windows XP – one file
hypertrm.exe in C:\Program File\Windows NT and second file hypertrm.dll in
C:\Windows\System32 or from CD “Spectra Smart PC v.x.xx.x” in folder
\Hyperterminal. Copy the folder from CD to basic PC or files from PC with Windows XP
into new folder “ Hyperterminal “, and create shortcut to file hypertrm.exe.
Copyright information
The Copyright information window is the first that appears after power -up.
It shows the current date and time and also gives an indication of the version of
the system that is loaded.
