DB-9 Adapter Description
Warning These interfaces are designed for use as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or subassembly must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.
The DB-9 adapter allows you to connect the timing signals (building integrated timing supply (BITS), tip connection signal, or ring connection signal) to the chassis in a different way. Typically, the BITS cables attach to the ONS 15310-MA using the BITS clock cable terminated with a DB-9 connector that plugs into the BITS port. However, in some cases, you may not want to use the DB-9 connector to connect such signals, but want to wrap directly the wire on to the pins. In such cases, you can use the DB-9 adapter.
