Table 23: Description of Alarm Names

Alarm Name

Description

SYS_CONFIG_CHANGE

Indicates the configuration has changed.

SYS_AUTHENTICATION

Indicates a system authentication failure.

GPS_ANTENNA_SHORT

Indicates an electrical short in the link to the GPS antenna.

GPS_ANTENNA_OPEN

Indicates an electrical open in the link to the GPS antenna.

GPS_NO_USABLE_SATELLITE

Indicates the GPS antenna is not receiving a signal from any satellite.

GPS_LEAP_SECOND_PENDING

Provides a warning of an impending leap second change (within 61 seconds).

GPS_RECEIVER_INACTIVE

The GPS receiver is not active.

TIMING_OSC_DAC_RANGE

Indicates that the frequency of the oscillator is out of the tuning range.

OVEN_TEMP_RANGE_HIGH

Indicates that the secondary oscillator oven temperature is greater than the set point temperature. This is only a status indicator as there is no impact on the oscillator primary oven control or its stability. We recommend that the severity be set to NONE.

OVEN_TEMP_RANGE_LOW

Indicates that the secondary oscillator oven temperature is less than the set point temperature. This is only a status indicator as there is no impact on the oscillator primary oven control or its stability. We recommend that the severity be set to NONE.

TE1_LOS

Indicates a loss of signal condition on the first T1/E1 timing input port.

TE1_LOF

Indicates a loss of frame condition on the first T1/E1 timing input port.

TE1_AIS

Indicates that an alarm indication signal is received on the first T1/E1 timing input port.

TE1_RAI

Indicates that a remote alarm indication signal is received on the first T1/E1 timing input port.

TE2_LOS

Indicates a loss of signal condition on the second T1/E1 timing input port.

TE2_LOF

Indicates a loss of frame condition on the second T1/E1 timing input port.

TE2_AIS

Indicates that an alarm indication signal is received on the second T1/E1 timing input port.

TE2_RAI

Indicates that a remote alarm indication signal is received on the second T1/E1 timing input port.

SYS_DIAG_FAILURE

Indicates that there is a system failure, reported by the system diagnostic utility.

LOSS_OF_POWER_FEED

Indicates that one of the two DC power feeds is not connected, or is not powered.

FREQ_ACQUIRING

Indicates that the system tries to adjust the local oscillator based on the input source such as GPS, T1, E1, and PTP. If the adjustments are completed, then the system state is changed from acquiring state to locked state.

FREQ_HOLDOVER

Indicates that the Timing Server is in holdover.

FREQ_FREERUN

Indicates that the Timing Server is in freerun.

FREQ_REF_INPUT_CHANGE

Indicates that the reference source for Timing Server has changed.

FREQ_REF_QUALITY_CHANGE

Indicates that the stratum level of the reference source for the Timing Server has changed.

LINK_DOWN

Indicates that one of the Ethernet ports is down.

LINK_UP

Indicates that one of the Ethernet ports is up.
