LED Indicators

Each power bus (A1, A2, B1, and B2) has a set of LED indicators, and are provided on the front side of the fuse alarm panel. The LED indicators are listed in Table 1.

Table 1 Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 Fuse Alarm Panel LED Indicators

Indicator Label
Color
Description

PWR

Green1

This indicator stays on (green) as long as electrical power is present in the corresponding power bus and turns off if the power is interrupted.

FUSE2

Red

This indicator turns on when the corresponding fuse fails. Replacement of the failed fuse with a good fuse will turn it off.

LVR

Red

This indicator turns on when the LVR device for the corresponding power bus activates the alarm due to a low voltage condition, which occurs when the input voltage is equal to or less than the LVR alarm activation setting. When the voltage level returns to the LVR alarm deactivation setting or greater, the indicator turns off.

1 This LED is lit in amber color if the unit is working in the -24VDC mode.

2 Separate fuse alarm (red) indicators are provided on each fuse holder.


Power Buses

The fuse alarm panel has four power bus (power feed) circuits: A1 and A2 within the A module; B1 and B2 within the B module. The circuit block diagram is as shown in Figure 4. (Module A is shown; module B is analogous.) It displays, in each bus circuit, current flows from the input power terminals through the corresponding TPA fuses to the output power terminals (labeled A1, A2, B1, or B2).

The maximum current capacity of each power bus circuit is 75 A. The total output current capacity of any TPA on any of the power buses must not exceed a 50 A rated fuse. The maximum current rating is marked on the fuse alarm panel rear side.

When a TPA fuse on the power bus fails, the input power bus is disconnected from the corresponding output circuit. A fuse failure also causes the fuse alarm indicator on the front of the corresponding fuse holder to light up (red) and opens or closes a set of alarm relay contacts.

Figure 4 Module Schematic (Module A Shown)

TPA Fuses

The fuse alarm panel uses TPA fuses, which can range in rating from 3 A to 50 A. However, two fuses on the same bus cannot together total more than 75 A. The fuses install in fuse holders that insert into any one of the eight receptacles located on the front side of the fuse alarm panel. Each receptacle provides one fuse holder mounting position. Each power bus is fed through two fuse positions.

I/O Voltage and LVR

The Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel accepts an input voltage of -48 VDC nominal, within an input range from -30 VDC to -60 VDC.

The LVR function activates an alarm if the voltage on any bus drops below the set level called the LVR alarm activation setting. The setting for all buses is set at a default of -39 VDC (+/- 0.5 VDC) and is field-adjustable.

The LVR function also provides a separate alarm deactivation setting for each bus. This is the trigger point at which the LVR deactivates the alarm when the supply voltage on the bus has returned to a safe level. The setting for all buses is set at a default of -43.5 VDC (+/- 0.5 VDC) and is field-adjustable.

LVR adjustments are made using DIP switches. For information of LVR adjustment, see the "Adjusting the Low Voltage Alarm Settings" procedure.

Input Power Connections

Input power is supplied to the fuse alarm panel through the A1, A2, B1, and B2 input power terminal blocks, located on the rear side of the fuse alarm panel. Each input terminal block includes two pairs of 0.25-inch ground studs that are used to connect the BATT negative (-) and RTN positive (+) input power cables. Each pair of ground studs is mounted on 0.625-inch centers and accepts various sizes of 2-hole compression lugs and AWG wires. The maximum lug width is 0.62-inches. In selecting the copper wire size to be used for power input, consider the allowable ampacity as defined by local practice and the National Electrical Code (see Table 3).

Output Power Connections

Output power is supplied to the site equipment through the A1, A2, B1, and B2 output power terminal blocks, located on the rear side of the fuse alarm panel. The screw-down terminals are used to connect the BATT negative (-) and RTN positive (+) output power wiring to the equipment.

Each terminal block consists of four pairs of screw-down terminals equipped with 8-32 screws. The output power wires can be terminated with spade-type compression lugs (maximum width, 0.378-inches), or the insulation can be stripped back and the bare wire looped under the screw head. In selecting the copper wire size to be used for power output, consider the allowable ampacity as defined by local practice and the National Electrical Code (see Table 3).

OR-ing Diodes

The Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel is equipped with OR-ing diodes that are installed on the RTN positive (+) inputs to the four buses. The purpose of these OR-ing diodes is to provide isolation of the return paths of the bus circuits. In a situation where two of the bus circuits are combined together at the equipment, this prevents both batteries from being drained if one battery short circuits. The isolated good battery continues to function, providing uninterrupted power. For a circuit diagram, see Figure 4. The operation of OR-ing diodes is fully automatic and no user adjustments are required.

Ground Connections

Two #10 studs are provided on the rear side of the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel for attaching a grounding cable to the fuse alarm panel chassis. The grounding studs are mounted on 0.625-inch centers. A minimum #6 AWG copper wire terminated with a 2-hole compression lug is recommended for use as the grounding cable and is provided with the fuse alarm panel.

Alarm Operation and Connections

The Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel has a circuitry that opens and closes form C relay contacts when a fuse fails or when power to any one of the four power buses is lost. These relay contacts can be used to open or close a loop circuit connected to an external alarm system.

The physical interface to the relays is through two blocks of wire-wrapped pins (one for each module) located on the rear side of the fuse alarm panel. Each block has three rows of three pins labeled NO, C, and NC. The top row is used for Bus 1 failure, the middle row is used for Bus 2 failure, and the bottom row is not used.

During normal operation (when power is present), the normally open (NO) contacts remain open and the normally closed (NC) contacts remain closed. When a fuse fails, or when source power to a power bus is lost, the NO contacts close and the NC contacts open, creating a connection between the NO and common (C) terminals, and an open circuit between the NC and C terminals.

The wire-wrapped pins accept #22 to #24 AWG copper wire. The rating for the alarm relay contacts is 110 VDC (125 VAC maximum voltage) with 1.0 A maximum switching current.

Cooling

For cooling, the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel relies on convection air flow. Holes are provided on the top and bottom of the fuse alarm panel to allow heated air to escape and cool air to enter. At least one rack unit of space or equivalent spacing must be provided above and below the fuse alarm panel to allow for air circulation.

Step 6 Terminate the wires at the appropriate terminals in the external alarm system.

Step 7 Return to the "Installing the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 Fuse Alarm Panel Wiring" procedure.


Connecting the Output

This task describes how to connect the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel to the protected equipment.


Caution All DC input wiring shall be routed away from any sharp edges and properly secured in place to prevent chaffing and to provide strain relief. This may be achieved by tie-wrapping the wires to the rack frame, or by equivalent means.


Caution Connecting the equipment to the wrong circuit may cause damage to the equipment or the fuse alarm panel. Make sure the fuse is the correct type and current rating as specified by the equipment manufacturer.


Note The continuous output load of the equipment during normal operation should not exceed 80% of the rated value of the fuse. This allows some room for manufacturing tolerances and voltage fluctuations in the plant power mains.



Step 1 Obtain the required lengths of wire for use as the output power cables.

Output power is supplied to the fused equipment through the output power terminal blocks, equipped with 8-32 screws. The output power wires may be terminated with spade-type compression lugs (maximum width 0.378-inches), or the insulation may be stripped back and the bare wire looped under the screw head. In selecting the copper wire size to be used for power output, consider the allowable ampacity as defined by local practice and the National Electrical Code (Table 3).

Step 2 Equip wire leads with ring-type compression lugs (maximum width 0.378-inches) or prepare a bare wire contact.

Step 3 Terminate the wires at the screw-down barrier strip as follows:

Negative wires (Battery -): Connect to the BATT output power terminals.

Positive wires (Return +): Connect to the RTN output power terminals.

Figure 11 shows a connection using ring-type compression lugs.

Step 4 Tighten the output power terminal block nuts to 15 pound force-inches (1.7 Newton-meters) of torque.

Step 5 Route the free end of each output power cable to the equipment for connection.

Step 6 Return to the "Installing the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 Fuse Alarm Panel Wiring" procedure.


Connecting Input

This task describes how to connect the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel to the input power source.


Caution All DC input wiring shall be routed away from any sharp edges and properly secured in place to prevent chaffing and to provide strain relief. This may be achieved by tie-wrapping the wires to the rack frame, or by equivalent means.


Caution Connect only the input voltage wire (the wire labeled BATTERY or BATT, or labeled with the negative [-] voltage polarity or the voltage value or both) to the connector on the fuse alarm panel labeled BATT. Connect only the input return wire (the wire labeled RTN, RETURN, or BATTERY GROUND, or labeled with the positive [+] voltage polarity) to the connector on the fuse alarm panel labeled RTN.


Caution Caution should be taken not to reverse the input wires to the fuse alarm panel. Within the fuse alarm panel, the internal return wiring is not protected by fuses. If the wires are reversed, current flows through the unprotected return wiring in the fuse alarm panel to the equipment. This condition can cause damage to the equipment in the frame in which the fuse alarm panel is installed and to the equipment in adjacent frames.


Step 1 Obtain eight lengths of copper wire for use as the input power cables.

Input power is supplied to the fuse alarm panel through the A1, A2, B1, and B2 input power terminal blocks located on the rear side of the fuse alarm panel. Each input terminal block consists of two pairs of 0.25-inch studs that are used for connecting the negative (BATT) and positive (RTN) input power cables. The stud pairs are mounted on 0.625-inch centers and accept 2-hole compression lugs. The maximum lug width is 0.625-inches. Kep nuts are provided to secure the compression lugs to the terminal block.

In selecting the copper wire size to be used for power output, consider the allowable ampacity as defined by local practice and the National Electrical Code (Table 3).

Step 2 Strip back 7/8-inches of insulation from one end of each wire.

Step 3 Slide a 2-inch length of heat shrink insulation over the end of each wire.

Step 4 Terminate one end of each wire with the 2-hole lug terminals provided (requires crimper).

Step 5 Slide the heat shrink insulation down to the lug terminal so that the barrel end of the terminal is covered.

Step 6 Use a heat gun to apply heat to the heat shrink insulation until it tightens around the wire and barrel end of the terminal.

Step 7 Form each input cable into the shape required for connection to the input terminals and secure to side of rack.

Step 8 Use the kep nuts provided to secure the input power wires to the specified terminals (Figure 12).

Step 10 Connect the positive inputs to the positive (RTN) terminals on the A1, A2, B1, and B2 input power terminal blocks.

Step 11 Use a torque wrench (with a 7/16-inch socket) to tighten the input power terminal block nuts to 42 pound force-inches (4.75 Newton meters) of torque.

Step 12 Route the free ends of the input power cables to the office battery source.

Step 13 Connect the input power cables to the office battery power source in accordance with applicable local electrical codes and National Electrical Codes. Do not apply power to the fuse alarm panel until instructed to do so for testing (see the "Testing the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 Fuse Alarm Panel" section).

Operating the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 Fuse Alarm Panel

This section describes how to operate the Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel.

The following topics are included:

Install TPA Fuse

Connecting New Equipment

Adjusting the Low Voltage Alarm Settings

Install TPA Fuse

This procedure describes how to install a TPA fuse.


Caution Using the wrong fuse can cause damage to the protected equipment or the power distribution panel. When replacing a blown fuse, make sure the fuse-type and current rating of the replacement fuse complies with any recommendations provided by the manufacturer of the protected equipment and does not exceed 50 A . Also, make sure that the two fuses installed for any bus do not total more than 75 A. The fuse rating must be chosen according to the protected equipment requirements.


Note The continuous output load of the equipment during normal operation should not exceed 80% of the rated value of the fuse. This allows some room for manufacturing tolerances and voltage fluctuations in the plant power mains.



Step 1 Obtain a TPA fuse of the recommended size and type (as specified by the equipment manufacturer) in each fuse position as needed. The current rating of the fuse (in amps) is indicated on the fuse.

Step 2 Remove the fuse holder from the fuse alarm panel by pulling outward on the fuse holder handle until it comes free of the fuse alarm panel.

Slide the top switch to right


Adjusting the Low Voltage Alarm Settings

The LVR function activates alarm when the input voltage drops below a specific level and deactivates the alarm when the voltage returns to a specific level. Both the alarm activation and deactivation voltages are adjustable. The Cisco ONS 15454-FAP-4 fuse alarm panel ships with the following LVR default voltage settings:

Normal operational voltage: -48 VDC

Alarm activation voltage: -39 VDC

Alarm deactivation voltage: -43.5 VDC

To change the default voltage settings:


Step 1 On the module that you want to adjust the voltage settings, remove the LVR cover. Remove the two screws, as shown in Figure 17. This allows access to the LVR adjustment switches.

Step 2 Set switches to the required positions as shown in Table 2.


Note If the LVR deactivation voltage is set equal to or less than the LVR activation value, the power LED flashes and the system overrides the deactivation setting and sets the deactivation setting to 1 VDC greater than the activation value. The power LED continues to flash as long as the switch setting is not corrected.
