AMC-101 Installation and Operation Manual
Chapter 1
Introduction
1.1 General
The AMC-101, a Universal Converter and Repeater, provides retimed or
transparent conversion of optical and electrical signals for ATM, FDDI, Fast
Ethernet and other protocols at data rates up to 155 Mbps. The modularity
of the AMC-101 interfaces enables field-changeable conversion between
any two media.
Transparent modules provide cost-effective media conversion without
reclocking. Retimed modules provide media conversion with reclocking,
which enables the AMC-101 to be used as a repeater. These modules can
also be set for transparent operation.
AMC-101 is supplied as a standalone unit. Special hardware for mounting
either a single unit or two units side-by-side in a 19" rack can be ordered
separately.
Retimed Modules
The AMC-101 provides retimed media conversion for the following ATM
interfaces:
•
TAXI (100 Mbps)
•
STM-1
•
STS-3c
•
STS-1 over optical and electrical interfaces.
Retimed conversion is also available for FDDI and Fast Ethernet between
single mode and multimode fiber, and for extending FDDI UTP
connections over fiber. The retimed modules provide rate selection for 51,
100 or 155 Mbps. When set to one of these rates, the retimed module
regenerates and reclocks the incoming signal and acts as an ATM or FDDI
repeater. When the switch is set to "OTHER", the modules regenerate the
signal without reclocking as transparent modules do.
Transparent
Modules
The AMC-101 provides transparent conversion for any two-level optical
protocol. Transparent modules are recommended for short distances and
for all fiber and copper applications at less than 100 Mbps.
A special WRAP button activates loopbacks at the two interfaces. This can
be used for test purposes or for special applications as explained later.

Chapter 1 - Introduction
The FDDI applies scrambling to data when operating over UTP, but not
doing so when operating over fiber. Because of this, AMC-101 can only
work in pairs for extending FDDI connections over fiber (see Figure 1-5).

Installation & Setup
2.1 Unpacking
Before Unpacking Inspect the equipment container before unpacking. Note and report
evidence of damage immediately.
Unpacking
Procedure
•
Place the container on a clean flat surface. Cut all straps and open or
remove top.
•
Remove the unit carefully and place it securely on a clean surface.
•
Remove all packing material.
•
Inspect the unit for damage. Report any damage immediately.
2.2 Site Requirements
Power
AMC-101 is powered by 100 to 240 VAC or -48 VDC.
The unit should be installed within 1.5m (5 ft) of an easily accessible
grounded AC outlet capable of supplying 230 V (115 V).
Front and Rear
Panel Clearance
Allow at least 90 cm (36 in) of clearance at the front of the unit for operator
access. Allow at least 10 cm (4 in) clearance at the rear of the unit for power
cord connection.
Ambient
Requirements
The ambient operating temperature of AMC-101 should be 0-40oC
(32-122oF) at a relative humidity of up to 90%, non-condensing.
Site Requirements

Installation of a
Single Unit
Rack adapter components for installing a single unit include one short
bracket and one long bracket. Each bracket is fastened to the side walls of
the unit by two screws (with flat washers) which are inserted into the two
front holes on the side wall (The unit is supplied with nuts already in place
on the inner side wall). Note that the short bracket fastens to the left side of
the unit, and the long bracket to the right side of the unit (see Figure 2-3).
Once the brackets are fastened to the side walls, the unit is ready for
installation in the 19" rack. Place the unit in the rack and fasten the brackets
to the side rails of the rack by means of the two screws situated on each side
(not included in the kit).

Installation of
Two Units
Chapter 2 - Installation & Setup
Rack adapter components for installing two units include two long side rails
(one for each unit) which slide one into the other fastening the two units
together, and two short side brackets which hold the two units in the
19'' rack (see Figure 2-4).
Figure 2-4 Installation of Two Units (a)
To install two units follow these instructions:
1. Fasten one long side rail to each unit (right side to one unit, left side to
the other unit) using the four screws and flat washers supplied. The side
rails must be attached in opposing fashion, the narrow flange of the first
rail opposite the wide flange of the second rail.
2. Attach one short bracket opposite the side rail on each unit using the
four screws and flat washers supplied.
3. Slide the side rail of one unit into the side rail of the other unit, fastening
the two units together (see Figure 2-5).
4. Secure the supplied plastic caps to the ends of the rails, to prevent the
units moving and to protect the rail ends.
5. Place the assembled units in the rack and fasten the brackets to the side
rails of the rack, by means of the four screws situated on each side
(not included in the kit).

2.3 Cable Connections
AC Power
Connection
Warning
AC power should be supplied to AMC-101 through a 1.5m (5 ft) standard
power cord terminated by a grounded 3-wire plug.
When applying AC power, first connect the plug of the AC cable to the
power connector on the rear panel of AMC-101 and then to the mains
outlet.
Grounding
Warning
2-4
AMC-101 Modules
Interrupting of the protective (grounding) conductor (inside or outside
the instrument) or disconnecting the protective earth terminal can make
this instrument dangerous. Intentional interruption of the grounding
conductor is prohibited.

In order to protect the AMC-1 from electrostatic discharge (ESD), use a DC
adapter where the (-) DC pole is connected to the protective earth.
3.3 Dry Contact Circuit and Connector for Alarms
A dry circuit with a 9-pin D-type connector on the rear panel, has been
added to the unit to signal minor and major alarms. The dry contact circuit
is used to signal the following alarms:
Alarm type
Description
RED ALARM
Power Failure (DC voltage on board)
YELLOW ALARM
Signal Detect Failure (to any of the unit modules)
CONFIG ALARM
Improper Configuration (incompatible modules
and/or data rates selected)
Three pins are dedicated for each alarm: Common (COM), OK and FAIL.
The COM pin is the input for each alarm. The user can drive the COM pin
with any signal (0 to 5v). If the signal is received OK, the COM pin is
connected to its corresponding OK pin; If there is a failure, the COM pin is
connected to its corresponding FAIL pin. See Table 3-4 and Figure 3-3 for
the connector pin assignments.

failure, it connects to pin 4 (OK). If there is a failure, pin 9 connects to pin 5
(FAIL).
3.4 Turning on the AMC-101
Connect the AC cable of AMC-101 to the mains outlet. The POWER
indicator on the front panel should light up.

Chapter 3 - Operation
3.5 Normal Operation
Once powered on, the POWER indicator should light up and the FLT should
be turned off. If the FLT indicator blinks, a configuration error exists: the
combination of the card types and the selected data rate is illegal.
Each AMC-101 module contains a SIG indicator. If the SIG indicator is
turned off; no signal is received by the module. If the SIG is turned on; a
signal is received by the module, and if the re-timing option is in use, the
PLL is synchronized to the receive signal. If the SIG blinks, a signal is
received by the module but the PLL is out of sync.
A special circuitry can be configured to transmit idle signal in case of not
receiving any signal from the other side. This option is enabled by the idle
jumper (JP-6) and can be used for power measurements in case of absence
of "real" data.
The WRAP function can be locally activated at any time and causes the
signal received by the module to be transmitted by the same module. If the
module features retiming, the looped back signal is retimed and re-clocked.
3.6 Turning off the AMC-101
Disconnect the AMC-101 AC cable from the mains outlet.
3.7 Troubleshooting Procedures
The POWER LED
does not light up
Check the power cord connection on the back of the unit and at the mains
outlet.
•
Verify power availability at the mains outlet.
Data transmission Ensure that the plugged-in modules are compatible with the protocol used
(media, data rate).
difficulties
Ensure that the FLT LED is off. (If the LED blinks, a configuration error exists:
the combination of the module types and the selected data rate is illegal).
Verify that the SIG LED is on and fixed. If the LED is off, no signal is being
received by the module. If the LED is blinking, the module PLL is out of
sync.
Use the WRAP option to localize the problematic segment.
