• The CVX switch must be connected to the DC power supply grounded conductor or bonding jumper from the
grounding terminal bar or bus to which the DC power supply grounded conductor is connected.
• The CVX switch must be located in the same area as other equipment having a connection between the grounded
conductor of the same DC supply circuit and the grounding conductor, and also the point of grounding of the DC
system. The DC system must not be grounded elsewhere.
• For the CVX 1800 switch, the DC power supply must be located on the same premises as the CVX 1800 switch.
• You must not switch or disconnect devices in the grounded conductor between the DC power supply and the point
of connection of the grounding electrode conductor.
• A readily accessible disconnect device may be provided in the fixed wiring for a DC power supply. The device must
be rated for the voltage and current specified.
• Before installing equipment in a rack, consider the overall loading of the branch circuit.

Rack Requirements
The rack must meet the following requirements:
• Heavy-duty steel construction
• EIA standard hole spacing, or a Telco rack with 25 mm spacing
• Width of 19 in. (48.26 cm) or 23 in. (58.42 cm), depth of 24 in. (60.96 cm)

Nortel Networks Rack Recommendation


Nortel Networks recommends using a Physical Telecommunications Environment
(PTE) 2000 rack.

Caution: Nortel Networks does not authorize the use of racks with front
or rear doors or side panels. The operating environment must provide
airflow at 200 cubic feet per minute (CFM) per CVX 1800 chassis at a
temperature range of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C). The optimal ambient
temperature for reliable CVX 1800 operation is 68° to 77°F (20° to
25°C).

Rack Placement
The rack you plan to install should be in an area that is:
• A dedicated equipment room or closet, wired in accordance with local
electrical codes
• Large enough to allow easy access for service and maintenance
• Free of dust, smoke, and electrostatic discharge
• Properly ventilated
• Well lighted

Note: The recommended aisle spacing is 29.5 in. (750 mm).

CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Mounting the CVX 1800 in a Rack

Ceiling Requirements
Consider the following ceiling requirements before you install the rack:
• The ceiling should be clear of obstructions such as beams, heating and air
conditioning ducts, water pipes, and lights.
• The ceiling should not have sprinklers; however, appropriate fire protection
devices should be available.

Size and Weight Considerations


Before you install the rack at your site, make sure that the equipment room can
accomodate the size and weight of the rack and the CVX 1800.

To determine the total weight, add the weight of all of the CVX 1800 chassis
(about 100 lb, 45.36 kg each), and the weight of the rack.

Reference
For information about general equipment requirements, see the Telcordia Network
Equipment Building System (NEBS) Requirements: Physical Protection (GR-63).

Nortel Networks PTE 2000 Rack


Nortel Networks offers two types of PTE 2000 racks:
• PTE 2000 NEBS-compliant rack (NTRU0134)
• PTE 2000 ETSI-compliant rack (NTRU0234)

Reference

Anchor Kits

Nortel Networks offers four types of PTE 2000 anchor kits; each kit contains two
anchors. If you do not plan to order anchor kits from Nortel Networks, you can
use other anchor kits that provide the same level of seismic protection.

Note: You must use six floor anchors to secure the PTE 2000 rack to the
equipment-room floor.

The following table describes each of the anchor kits.

Space Requirements

The following table lists the PTE 2000 racks and dimensions.

Width in Depth in Height in


Rack Type Part Number
Inches (mm) Inches (mm Inches (mm)

NEBS-compliant rack NTRU0134 23.6 (600) 23.6 (600) 83.66 (2125)


ETSI-compliant rack NTRU0234 23.6 (600) 23.6 (600) 86.6 (2200)

Flooring Requirements

You must anchor the PTE 2000 rack to the equipment-room floor. The flooring
can be one of the following types:
• Raised floor tiles, ideally with a clearance of 18 in. (45.5 cm), and a subfloor
cable management system
• Bare concrete floor

Depths for Drilling

If you plan to install the PTE 2000 floor anchors on a bare concrete floor, you
must drill to the following depths:
• 2 in. (51 mm) for the 3/8 in. anchor (for zone 2 earthquake compliance,
NTRU0323/NTRU0326)
• 4 in. (103 mm) for the M12 anchor (for zone 4 earthquake compliance,
NTRU0324/NTRU0328)

Warning: Before you begin to drill, make sure you are familiar with the
building construction. If you plan to drill holes in a below-ground
structure, make sure that you do not drill through the concrete into the
vapor barrier. If you do, groundwater may seep through the anchor hole.

Mounting the CVX 1800 in a Rack

Access Considerations
The doorways, corridors, and elevators leading to the installation site must be able
to accommodate the rack. Consider the following when planning the arrival and
unloading of the PTE 2000 rack:
• Including the pallet on which the PTE 2000 rack is shipped, the height of the
rack is 91.66 in. (2,325 mm). The pallet width is 39.4 in. (1,000 mm).
• The weight of an empty PTE 2000 rack is approximately 125 lb (57 kg),
excluding the shipping crate.
• Use freight elevators (if available) to move the equipment to upper floors.

Rack Cooling Requirements


You can install up to four CVX 1800 switches in a standard Telco or EIA rack
without front or rear doors or side panels. Nortel Networks recommends using a
PTE 2000 rack.

To ensure proper cooling for the CVX 1800, the rack must meet the following
requirements:
• The operating environment must provide airflow at 200 CFM per CVX 1800
chassis at a temperature range of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C).
• The optimal ambient temperature for reliable long-term CVX 1800 operation
is 68° to 77°F (20° to 25°C).

CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Installing the CVX 1800 Chassis

Installing the CVX 1800 Chassis

Mounting Options
You can install the CVX 1800 chassis in one of two ways:
• Position the chassis on a flat, sturdy, horizontal surface.
• Mount the chassis in a rack.

Positioning the Chassis on a Flat Surface


When positioning the chassis on a flat, sturdy surface, ensure that the surface is:
• Large enough for the chassis to operate properly
• Strong enough to support the combined weight of the chassis and the cables

Mounting the Chassis in a Rack


Before installing the chassis in a rack, you must decide if you want to flush-mount
or mid-mount the chassis. The mounting flanges are either preinstalled on the
chassis in the mid-mount position, or are included in the accessory kit. If you need
to reposition the preinstalled mounting flanges, read the next section.

Caution: Before you install the CVX 1800 chassis in a rack, ensure that
the rack is sturdy and well secured. A fully configured CVX 1800 chassis
weighs about 100 lb, which could make an unsecured rack top-heavy or
unstable.

Note: For NEBS 2000 compliance, you must install the CVX 1800
chassis in the mid-mount position.

Installing the External AC Power Supply

Installing the External AC Power Supply

Overview
The optional external AC power supply contains up to three independent 1500 W
power modules. Each 1500 W power module can power one CVX 1800. You can
configure the external AC power supply as a fully redundant, load-sharing power
system. If the primary power module fails and there is a secondary power module
in the unit, the secondary power module provides power to the CVX 1800.

Determining Power Distribution


For 1:1 nonredundant power distribution, connect two CVX 1800s to the external
AC power supply using two 1500 W power modules. For N+1 redundancy,
connect two CVX 1800s to the external AC power supply using three 1500 W
power modules.

Note: A CVX 1800 must have two or more 1500 W power modules to
support power redundancy and load sharing.

Mounting the CVX 1800 in a Rack

Rack Requirements
The rack must meet the following requirements:
• Heavy-duty steel construction
• EIA standard hole spacing, or a Telco rack with 25 mm spacing
• Width of 19 in. (48.26 cm) or 23 in. (58.42 cm), depth of 24 in. (60.96 cm)

Nortel Networks Rack Recommendation


Nortel Networks recommends using a Physical Telecommunications Environment
(PTE) 2000 rack.

Caution: Nortel Networks does not authorize the use of racks with front
or rear doors or side panels. The operating environment must provide
airflow at 200 cubic feet per minute (CFM) per CVX 1800 chassis at a
temperature range of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C). The optimal ambient
temperature for reliable CVX 1800 operation is 68° to 77°F (20° to
25°C).

Rack Placement
The rack you plan to install should be in an area that is:
• A dedicated equipment room or closet, wired in accordance with local
electrical codes
• Large enough to allow easy access for service and maintenance
• Free of dust, smoke, and electrostatic discharge
• Properly ventilated
• Well lighted

Note: The recommended aisle spacing is 29.5 in. (750 mm).

296-1011-200 Rel. 5.0, Doc. Rev. 08.01 2-7


CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Mounting the CVX 1800 in a Rack

Ceiling Requirements
Consider the following ceiling requirements before you install the rack:
• The ceiling should be clear of obstructions such as beams, heating and air
conditioning ducts, water pipes, and lights.
• The ceiling should not have sprinklers; however, appropriate fire protection
devices should be available.

Size and Weight Considerations


Before you install the rack at your site, make sure that the equipment room can
accomodate the size and weight of the rack and the CVX 1800.

To determine the total weight, add the weight of all of the CVX 1800 chassis
(about 100 lb, 45.36 kg each), and the weight of the rack.

Reference
For information about general equipment requirements, see the Telcordia Network
Equipment Building System (NEBS) Requirements: Physical Protection (GR-63).

Nortel Networks PTE 2000 Rack


Nortel Networks offers two types of PTE 2000 racks:
• PTE 2000 NEBS-compliant rack (NTRU0134)
• PTE 2000 ETSI-compliant rack (NTRU0234)

Reference

For PTE 2000 rack installation instructions, see the PTE 2000 Installation Guide

Anchor Kits

Nortel Networks offers four types of PTE 2000 anchor kits; each kit contains two
anchors. If you do not plan to order anchor kits from Nortel Networks, you can
use other anchor kits that provide the same level of seismic protection.

Note: You must use six floor anchors to secure the PTE 2000 rack to the
equipment-room floor.

The following table describes each of the anchor kits.

ETSI-compliant rack NTRU0234 23.6 (600) 23.6 (600) 86.6 (2200)

Flooring Requirements

You must anchor the PTE 2000 rack to the equipment-room floor. The flooring
can be one of the following types:
• Raised floor tiles, ideally with a clearance of 18 in. (45.5 cm), and a subfloor
cable management system
• Bare concrete floor

Depths for Drilling

If you plan to install the PTE 2000 floor anchors on a bare concrete floor, you
must drill to the following depths:
• 2 in. (51 mm) for the 3/8 in. anchor (for zone 2 earthquake compliance,
NTRU0323/NTRU0326)
• 4 in. (103 mm) for the M12 anchor (for zone 4 earthquake compliance,
NTRU0324/NTRU0328)

Warning: Before you begin to drill, make sure you are familiar with the
building construction. If you plan to drill holes in a below-ground
structure, make sure that you do not drill through the concrete into the
vapor barrier. If you do, groundwater may seep through the anchor hole.

Mounting the CVX 1800 in a Rack

Access Considerations
The doorways, corridors, and elevators leading to the installation site must be able
to accommodate the rack. Consider the following when planning the arrival and
unloading of the PTE 2000 rack:
• Including the pallet on which the PTE 2000 rack is shipped, the height of the
rack is 91.66 in. (2,325 mm). The pallet width is 39.4 in. (1,000 mm).
• The weight of an empty PTE 2000 rack is approximately 125 lb (57 kg),
excluding the shipping crate.
• Use freight elevators (if available) to move the equipment to upper floors.

Rack Cooling Requirements


You can install up to four CVX 1800 switches in a standard Telco or EIA rack
without front or rear doors or side panels. Nortel Networks recommends using a
PTE 2000 rack.

To ensure proper cooling for the CVX 1800, the rack must meet the following
requirements:
• The operating environment must provide airflow at 200 CFM per CVX 1800
chassis at a temperature range of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C).
• The optimal ambient temperature for reliable long-term CVX 1800 operation
is 68° to 77°F (20° to 25°C).

CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Installing the CVX 1800 Chassis

Installing the CVX 1800 Chassis

Mounting Options
You can mount the CVX 1800 chassis in one of two ways:
• Position the chassis on a flat, sturdy, horizontal surface.
• Mount the chassis in a rack.

Positioning the Chassis on a Flat Surface


When positioning the chassis on a flat, sturdy surface, ensure that the surface is:
• Large enough for the chassis to operate properly
• Strong enough to support the combined weight of the chassis and the cables

Positioning the Chassis in a Rack


Before installing the chassis in a rack, you must decide if you want to flush-mount
or mid-mount the chassis. The mounting flanges are either preinstalled on the
chassis in the mid-mount position, or are included in the accessory kit. If you need
to reposition the preinstalled mounting flanges, read the next section.

Caution: Before you install the CVX 1800 chassis in a rack, ensure that
the rack is sturdy and well secured. A fully configured CVX 1800 chassis
weighs about 100 lb, which could make an unsecured rack top-heavy or
unstable.

Note: For NEBS 2000 compliance, you must install the CVX 1800
chassis in the mid-mount position.

CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Installing the External AC Power Supply

Installing the External AC Power Supply

Overview
The optional external AC power supply contains up to three independent 1500 W
power modules. Each 1500 W power module can power one CVX 1800. You can
configure the external AC power supply as a fully redundant, load-sharing power
system. If the primary power module fails and there is a secondary power module
in the unit, the secondary power module provides power to the CVX 1800.

Determining Power Distribution


For 1:1 nonredundant power distribution, connect two CVX 1800s to the external
AC power supply using two 1500 W power modules. For N+1 redundancy,
connect two CVX 1800s to the external AC power supply using three 1500 W
power modules.

Note: A CVX 1800 must have two or more 1500 W power modules to
support power redundancy and load sharing.

Procedure
To install the external AC power supply, follow these steps:

Step Action

1 Locate a suitable position in a rack close to the CVX 1800 chassis.


2 Lift the power supply to the desired installation height.
3 Align the flange holes with the holes on the front vertical supports of the
rack.
4 Insert a truss-head screw through each flange hole and into the
corresponding hole in the front vertical supports of the rack.
5 Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the screws.
6 Install each power supply module by sliding it into an available slot.
7 Secure each power supply module by turning the large thumbscrew
clockwise until it stops.

Connecting Alarms

Introduction
The SCC-LTM and SCC-RLTMs contain a terminal block that allows you to
connect up to three audible alarms and three visual alarms. These alarms alert you
to critical, major, and minor conditions. The top six screw terminals on the
terminal block are available for audible alarms, such as bells; the bottom six screw
terminals are available for visual alarms, such as lights.

Warning: The contacts on the terminal block are rated at 30 VAC and
have a maximum current rating of 1 ampere (A). The circuit connecting
the alarms must meet the requirements for safety extra-low voltage
(SELV). The wires connecting the alarms must be the appropriate gauge
for alarm devices.

During normal, uninterrupted operation, the contacts remain open. If a failure


occurs, the contacts close and trigger the connected alarm.

Alarm Categories
The following table lists the three general categories of alarms and the possible
causes.

Alarm Possible Cause

Critical (Crit) Hardware failures, such as when the system power supply or fan
module have failed.
Major (Maj) Communication failures: link or network connection has failed.
Minor (Min) Modem failures: configured thresholds have been exceeded.

Routing the Cables

Cable Mounts
The CVX 1800 chassis includes plastic cable mounts to position the cables, using
cable ties (not supplied), around the chassis. These mounts help to ensure that the
cables at the back of the chassis do not obstruct airflow and do not obstruct the
removal of LTMs and RLTMs.

Use cable ties


through these mounts.

CVX 1800 Hardware Installation Guide
Routing the Cables

Routing Fiber Optic Cables

Introduction

The routing of fiber optic cables requires different considerations than the routing
of wire cables, due to the delicate material of the transmission line.

Minimum Radius

The following table gives the minimum bend radius for several types of fiber optic
cable:

Minimum Bend Radius Minimum Bend


Cable/Fiber Type Number of Fibers
(normal handling) Radius (static load)

Simplex 1 35 mm 50 mm
Duplex 2 70 mm 140 mm
Quad 4 85 mm 160 mm

Note: The minimum radius must be maintained at all times, including


while routing the cable and managing slack cable.

Rack Standoff Brackets

To ensure that the fiber optic cable is properly secured to the chassis, a
rack-mounted bracket may be used to support the fiber optic cable. Nortel does
not supply a bracket for this purpose.

Securing and Wrapping Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables can be secured with tie wraps, if not applied too tightly. Your
application may also require the fiber to be wrapped in a protective paper. Tie
wraps must be fitted in accordance with Nortel Work Standards WS-001 and
WS-4024.

Installing and Removing the Flash Memory Cards

Installing and Removing the Flash Memory Cards

Description
The SCC-SM contains dual PCMCIA slots for the flash memory card. The flash
memory card provides storage for the CVX 1800 nonvolatile file system (NVFS),
operating system software, and configuration files. When you insert the flash
memory card, the NVFS automatically provides access to the flash memory card.

The dual PCMCIA slots are labeled 1 and 2. Slot 1 is the C: drive and slot 2 is the
D: drive. Always use slot 1 for the flash memory card. Use slot 2 if you need to
copy the flash memory card in slot 1 to a flash memory card in slot 2.

Note: If the flash memory card is not already in the SCC, insert it into
slot 1.

Warning: You must use software Release 5.0 or later when using an
Optical SCC-II-SM. Use of older versions will corrupt the SCC-SM,
requiring the return of the module to Nortel for reprogramming. Do not
copy earlier versions of software to a flash memory card used in an
Optical SCC-II-SM.

Reference
See the manual CVX Multi-Service Access Switch Configuration Guide for
information about copying a flash memory card.
