TCX1000-RDM20 Channel Power Monitoring Ranges

 

This topic describes the channel power monitoring ranges for the TCX1000-RDM20.

Two power ranges are defined for each monitor:

  • Operation — The Operation range is the optical power range over which the channel monitoring and control is expected to meet all operating performance requirements.

  • Alarm — The Alarm range is the optical power range over which the monitoring is still required in order to have proper system alarming and fault detection. The alarm range maximum and minimum define the hardware limits (power readings outside of hardware limits are considered invalid).

Table 1 describes the channel power monitoring ranges.
