The HRM 7121 receiver is ideal for both 1310 nm and 1550 nm-based network
applications. The MAXLink system provides a cost-effective solution for a
variety of applications and architectures, including long-haul transport
beyond the reach of 1310 nm transmitters, and fiber-dense architectures that
take advantage of high-power optical amplifiers. In addition, this system is
ideally suited for new, evolving transport architectures such as redundant
rings, broadcast layer transmission, and hub interconnects used in broadband
networks.
The HRM 7121 broadband optical receiver offers a wide operational
bandwidth to support the high-performance MAXLink transmission
products. The HRM 7121 provides superior performance, element
management control via SNMP, an embedded web interface, and switching
capabilities through NMS or TTL logic.
The stand-alone 1-RU design of the MAXLink product line saves valuable
rack space and operational costs since an additional platform and power
supplies are not needed.

Connecting Power

3.7

Connecting Power
The HRM 7121 is available in an AC power model and a DC power model.
After mounting the HRM 7121 in a rack, follow the power connection
procedure below for the model that you are installing.

3.7.1

Connecting AC Power
The AC-powered HRM 7121 has one 110/220 VAC (50/60 Hz) input
connector that requires input voltage from 100 to 240 VAC, at 50 to 60 Hz
single phase. Selection switching over this range is automatic. The AC power
plug is located on the rear panel, as shown in Figure 3-1 on page 3-1.
To connect AC power:
1. Connect the ground contact to the ground. This is important for your
safety. The ground contact is located on the rear panel, as shown in Figure
3-1 on page 3-1.
2. Connect the power cord to a 110 VAC or 220 VAC (50/60 Hz) electrical
socket. (The AC-powered HRM 7121 features an auto-sensing power
supply.)
CAUTION: To avoid personal injury and damage to the equipment, use a
power outlet with a protective ground (third wire) contact.

3.7.2

Connecting DC Power
The DC-powered HRM 7121 has two 48 VDC input connectors that require
input voltage from 36 to 72 VDC. The DC input connectors are located on
the rear panel, as shown in Figure 3-1 on page 3-1.
The two power plugs allow you to provide redundant (backup) power. If you
provide redundant power, the HRM 7121 continues to operate when the
primary power source fails. There is no difference between the two DC input
connectors. Connect either one to the primary power source and the other to
the (optional) backup power source.
To connect DC power:
1. Connect the ground contact to the ground. This is important for your
safety. The ground contact is located on the rear panel, as shown in Figure
3-1 on page 3-1.
2. Attach a DC power terminal block to the rear panel of the HRM 7121
using a small flat-bladed screwdriver.
3. Connect two 1812 gauge power wires from the power source to the DC
terminal block. The HRM 7121 starts up. It takes about 30 seconds for all

6.2.2 Cleaning MAXLink Receiver Optical Connectors on page 6-2.
NOTE: Any contamination of either the fiber cable or HRM 7121 receiver
connector can significantly degrade optical link performance. This
degradation will most likely manifest itself as poor carrier-to-noise
(CNR) performance.
4. Note the key characteristics of the mating connectors and align them
accordingly. Gently insert the fiber cable connector into that of the
HRM 7121 until the connector clicks into place.

3.9

Connecting the RF Output Cable


The RF output connector of the HRM 7121 is located on the rear panel,
as shown in Figure 3-1 on page 3-1. It is a female F connector that accepts
75 Ohm impedance coaxial cable.
NOTE: To ensure performance integrity, use coaxial cable with a
.025 to .032 inch center conductor diameter.
To connect the RF output cable:
1. Connect the male F connector of the coaxial cable to the RF output
connector on the rear panel of the HRM 7121.
2. Tighten the cable securely (using an F-connector tool, if necessary).
3. Connect the other end of the cable to your RF device. In a redundant
system, you may need to connect the two output cables (from two
receivers) to a combiner or switch.

Configuring Two HRM 7121 Receivers as a Redundant Pair

3.10

Configuring Two HRM 7121 Receivers as a


Redundant Pair
This section provides instructions for configuring HRM 7121 receivers as
redundant pairs. If you are configuring the HRM 7121 to operate
independently, you can skip this section.
Each HRM 7121 receiver can be configured in one of the following ways:

As an independent, standalone unit (not connected to another unit)


As the primary unit in a redundant pair (connected to a backup unit)
As the backup unit in a redundant pair (connected to a primary unit)

In a redundant pair configuration, you use one unit for primary fiber paths
and a second unit for backup fiber paths. Normally, the primary receiver
mutes the RF output of the backup receiver. If the primary receiver is in alarm
(the optical input level on the primary receiver falls below 10 dBm, the
optical power low alarm threshold), the primary receiver activates (unmutes)
the backup receiver and mutes itself.
When the primary receivers optical input level rises above the optical alarm
limit, it removes the unmute command from the backup receiver and the
backup receiver returns to its default muted state.
Use the Primary/Backup cable (included with the HRM 7121) to connect the
two units of the redundant pair. One end of the cable is labeled Primary, the
other end is labeled Backup.
To configure two HRM 7121 receivers as a redundant pair:
1. Install both HRM 7121 receivers.
2. Connect the Primary end of the Primary/Backup cable to the
Primary/Backup connector of the primary receiver. The Primary/Backup
connector is located on the rear panel of the HRM 7121, as shown in
Figure 3-1 on page 3-1.
3. Connect the Backup end of the Primary/Backup cable to the
Primary/Backup connector of the backup receiver.

3.11

Connecting the TTL Alarm Cable


The TTL-compatible alarm port is an RJ-11 connector located on the rear
panel, as shown in Figure 3-1 on page 3-1.
You can use the TTL alarm port to connect the HRM 7121 to other devices,
in order to monitor alarms on the HRM 7121.
Two pins are used for the alarm:

Pin 3 is the ground.


Pin 4 is the TTL alarm output. When an alarm is present, the level of the
signal from Pin 4 goes high, sending a 5-volt signal. When there is no
alarm from the HRM 7121, the signal from Pin 4 stays low.

your TCP/IP network. The Ethernet port is located on the rear panel of the
receiver, as shown in Figure 3-1 on page 3-1.
2. Verify that the green Link LED is illuminated, which means there is a
connection. The Link LED is located above the Ethernet port.

3.13

Assigning IP Addresses
IP addresses must be assigned to the HRM 7121 receiver, so that NMSs and
web browsers can communicate with it. You can use the front panel to assign
the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
NOTE: IP addresses are unique in a local Ethernet system network. If you do
not know the IP addresses of the HRM 7121, contact your system
administrator.

Installing the HRM 7121 Receiver

3.15

Adjusting the RF Output Power Level


After completing installation of the HRM 7121, you can perform the following
procedure to adjust the RF output power level to your specifications.
Because the RF output level depends on optical received power, any EDFA
output power and optical pads along the link must be finalized before
adjusting the HRM 7121 output power. Output power also varies with the
optical modulation index from the transmitter at the headend. Therefore, the
transmitter must be adjusted first.
To adjust the RF output power level:
1. Connect a spectrum analyzer or an RF power meter to the RF monitor
using a short cable.
2. Read the detected RF power. The RF monitor level is 20 dB below the
output level of the receiver, 1 dB.
3. Adjust the RF output level to your specifications by using the front panel
interface (see Section 2.2.2 HRM Adjustments Menu on page 2-7).
If you use an RF power meter, it measures composite (total) RF power
rather than power per channel. You need to calculate the average power
per channel based on measured composite power, number of analog
channels, number of digital channels, and digital channel level. Table 3-2
provides examples.

Cleaning Fiber Optic Connectors


DANGER: The fiber cable carries invisible laser radiation. AVOID
EXPOSURE TO THE BEAM. Never operate a unit that has a
broken fiber or a disconnected fiber connector.
Dirty optical connectors are the leading source of poor performance in a
broadband optical fiber network. Dirty optical connectors lead to optical
signal loss and reflections, which in turn can seriously degrade carrier-tonoise (CNR) performance and, in some cases, distortion performance.
Therefore, Harmonic recommends that you clean all mating fiber connectors,
before connecting them to an optical device.

MAXLink HRM 7121 Optical Receiver Product Manual Rev A (5/06)

61

Maintenance and Troubleshooting

In addition, if you suspect that the optical connector of an HRM 7121 may
have been exposed to contamination (by a dirty fiber cable connector, for
example), you should properly clean the HRM 7121 optical connector before
connecting the optical fiber.
CAUTION: Improper cleaning of an optical connector can do more harm
than good. Never spray a clean-air product onto the surface of
an optical connector. Spraying air onto an optical connector can
cause condensation on the connector surface, leaving water
spots and trapping dust. Failing to wipe a connector on dry lens
paper immediately after wiping on paper wet with isopropyl
alcohol can also lead to condensation on the connector. Using
low-grade cleaning paper or other cloth to wipe an optical
connector can leave microscopic fibers on the optical connector
surface.

6.2.1

Cleaning Patch Cord or Pigtail Fiber Optical Connectors


To clean optical connectors, Harmonic recommends using a fiber optic
connector cleaning cartridge (such as NTT Cletop). If a cleaning cartridge is
not available, follow these steps.
To clean the optical connector of a patch cord or pigtail:
1. Fold a piece of unused dry lens cleaning paper twice, for a four-ply
thickness.
2. Use a drop of high-grade isopropyl alcohol to wet part of the paper.
3. Lay the connector on the lens cleaning paper with the tip touching the
paper.
4. In one continuous motion, pull the connector from the wet part of the
paper to the dry part.

6.2.2

Cleaning MAXLink Receiver Optical Connectors


To clean the optical connector of a MAXLink receiver:
1. Release the internal optical connector from the internal bulkhead adaptor.
The end of the internal fiber connector can now be cleaned.
When the fiber connector is extended from the unit, take care to prevent
twisting or rotating the connector in order to prevent possible fiber
damage.
2. Fold a piece of unused dry lens cleaning paper twice, for a four-ply
thickness.
3. Use a drop of high-grade isopropyl alcohol to wet part of the paper.
4. In one continuous motion, pull the connector from the wet part of the
paper to the dry part.
5. Once the cleaning is complete, re-insert the internal fiber connector into
the bulkhead adaptor and press the two parts together carefully.
