Figure 3-14 E1-75/120 Impedance Conversion Panel Block Diagram

You can install the E1-75/120 conversion panel in the rack containing the ONS 15454 SDH shelf or in a nearby rack. If you install the E1-75/120 conversion panel in a place where a longer cable is required, make sure that the total cable loss of the balanced 120-ohm cable and the unbalanced 75-ohm cable does not exceed the maximum allowed value. The E1-75/120 conversion panel enables the use of 75-ohm interfaces on client side with the E1-42 card that has 120-ohm interfaces.

Before you can install the E1-75/120 in the rack, install the rackmount brackets that are required for the rack that you are using.

With the FMEC STM1E 1:1 card, each interface of an STM1E-12 card operates at 155.52 mbps for STM-1 over a 75-ohm unbalanced coaxial 1.0/2.3 miniature coax connector. The FMEC STM1E 1:1 card is required if you want to use the STM1E-12 card in 1:1 protection mode or for connection to two unprotected STM1E-12 cards.

Figure 3-16 shows the FMEC STM1E 1:1 faceplate and block diagram.

Figure 3-16 FMEC STM1E 1:1 Faceplate and Block Diagram

You can install the FMEC STM1E 1:1 card in any EFCA slot pair (18/19, 20/21, 26/27, or 28/29) on the ONS 15454 SDH. Each FMEC STM1E 1:1 card interface features STM1-level inputs and outputs supporting cable losses of up to 12.7 dB at 78 MHz.

3.16  BLANK-FMEC Faceplate


Note For BLANK-FMEC specifications, see the "BLANK-FMEC Specifications" section.


The BLANK-FMEC sheet metal faceplate provides EMC emission control for empty FMEC slots. It also provides a way to close off the EFCA area, thus allowing air flow and convection to be maintained through the EFCA. You must install the BLANK-FMEC faceplate in every empty FMEC slot to maintain EMC requirements of the system and proper air flow. Figure 3-17 shows the BLANK-FMEC faceplate.

Figure 3-17 BLANK-FMEC Faceplate

3.17  MIC-A/P FMEC


Note For MIC-A/P FMEC specifications, see the "MIC-A/P Specifications" section.


The MIC-A/P FMEC provides connection for the BATTERY B input, one of the two possible redundant power supply inputs. It also provides connection for eight alarm outputs (coming from the TCC2/TCC2P card), sixteen alarm inputs, and four configurable alarm inputs/outputs. Its position is in Slot 23 in the center of the subrack EFCA area. Figure 3-18 shows the MIC-A/P faceplate and block diagram.

Figure 3-18 MIC-A/P Faceplate and Block Diagram

The MIC-A/P FMEC has the following features:

Connection for one of the two possible redundant power supply inputs

Connection for eight alarm outputs (coming from the TCC2/TCC2P card)

Connection for four configurable alarm inputs/outputs

Connection for sixteen alarm inputs

Storage of manufacturing and inventory data


Note For proper system operation, both the MIC-A/P and the MIC-C/T/P FMECs must be installed in the ONS 15454 SDH shelf.



Note The MIC-A/P card controls whether FMEC cards on its side of the shelf appear in the CTC graphical user interface (GUI). For example, if the MIC-A/P is removed from the shelf, FMECs to the left of the card might disappear in CTC. This is normal behavior because when the MIC-A/P card is removed, communication can no longer be established with the disappeared FMECs. For more information, refer to the IMPROPROMVL entry in the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.
