Safety Warnings for the LN2600 Router

  • The hardware equipment is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area is one to which access can be gained only by service personnel through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security, and which is controlled by the authority responsible for the location.

  • The DC-powered router is equipped with a DC power connector that is rated for the power requirements of a maximally configured router. To supply sufficient power, terminate the DC input wiring on a facility DC source capable of supplying at least 2 A @ –48 VDC per input for each power supply.

  • The DC power input port is Type 8 as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 6.

  • Incorporate an easily accessible disconnect device into the facility wiring. We recommend that the 48 VDC facility DC source be equipped with a circuit breaker rated between 6.25 A to 10 A @ 48 VDC, or as required by local code. In the United States and Canada, the 48 VDC facility should be equipped with a circuit breaker rated a minimum of 125% of the power provisioned for the input in accordance with the National Electrical Code in the US and the Canadian Electrical Code in Canada. A readily accessible disconnect device should be incorporated external to the device.

  • Primary overcurrent protection is provided by the building circuit breaker. This breaker should protect against excess currents, short circuits, and earth faults in accordance with NEC ANSI/NFPA70.

  • The LN2600 router has more than one power source. Ensure proper care while connecting the DC power supply to the router. The following label provides the warning of the dual power source:

  • Some parts of the LN2600 router might become hot. The following label provides the warning of the hot surfaces on the router:

  • The SFP interface might not turn off the laser when the interface is disabled.

  • The Ethernet cables permanently connected to the router must be shielded CAT6A type cables.

  • The intrabuilding port(s) of the router is suitable for connection to intrabuilding or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intrabuilding port(s) of the router MUST NOT be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intrabuilding interfaces only (Type 2 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 6) and require isolation from the exposed cabling. The addition of primary protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.

  • The intrabuilding port(s) of the equipment must use intrabuilding cabling or wiring that is grounded at both ends.

  • The battery return connection is to be treated as an isolated DC return (that is DC-I), as defined in GR-1089-CORE.

  • The equipment is suitable for installation as part of the Common Bonding Network (CBN).

  • The equipment is suitable for installation in telecommunication network facilities and locations where the National Electrical Code (NEC) applies.
