Laser Safety – Fiber Output SFP and QSFP Modules Warning
LASER SAFETY
The average optical output power does not exceed 0 dBm (1mW) under normal operating conditions. Unused optical outputs should be covered to prevent direct exposure to the laser beam. Even though the power of these lasers is low, the beam should be treated with caution and common sense because it is intense and concentrated. Laser radiation can cause irreversible and permanent damage of eyesight. Please read the following guidelines carefully:
· Make sure that a fiber is connected to the board’s fiber outputs before power is applied. If a fiber cable (e.g. patchcord) is already connected to an output, make sure that the cable’s other end is connected, too, before powering up the board.
· Do not look in the end of a fiber to see if light is coming out. The laser wavelengths being used are totally invisible to the human eye and can cause permanent damage. Always use optical instrumentation, such as an optical power meter, to verify light output.
Mains Supply Voltage
Before connecting the equipment, observe the safety warnings section and ensure that the local mains supply is within the rating stated on the rear of the equipment.

Environment and Location
Environmental Considerations
This chapter instructs the user how to install the control surfaces, mainframe and any ancillary panels into desktop and 19 inch rack environments. Attention should be paid to the cooling information for the mainframe. The ambient temperature for all the supplied equipment should not exceed the limits of 5
and 40°C (41 to 104F) at a relative humidity of 10 to 90% (non-condensing).
Installing the equipment in a clean environment with moderate temperature and humidity will promote a long and trouble-free equipment life.
23

Environment and Location Control Surfaces
Control Surfaces
Mounting a Kula Control Surface into a Desk
Note: The Kula control surface should preferably be mounted in a desk which is open underneath. Note: If the desk is not open underneath, enough room has to be left underneath for ventilation and for routing the PSU and Comms cables to the underside of the control surface. Note: It is essential to ensure the air temperature does not exceed 40°C. With the desk cut to the correct size, desk cut-out information can be found on: · 24 crosspoint (KPX and K1X) cutout diagrams on pages 37 and 38. · 16 crosspoint (K1P and KPP) cutout diagrams on page 41. The Control Surface is secured into a desk using appropriate “Pan Head” M4 screws with a Max. head diameter of 8.8mm [0.34 Inches]. At each end of each Control Surface, there are two 4.5 mm [0.18 Inches] fixing point holes for the screws (as shown on the diagram below). Fixing point Screw Holes

Environment and Location Mainframe Location and Environment
Mainframe Location and Environment
Air Flow through the Mainframe
The Kula mainframe can be used freestanding (tabletop configuration) or installed in a standard 483mm (19 inch) equipment rack. The following precautions should be observed:
1 The air intakes on both sides and the cooling fan exhausts at the rear of the unit must not be obstructed – a minimum clearance at the rear of the mainframe of 200mm (8 inches) is ESSENTIAL.
2 Air intakes situated at the front and on both sides, are to allow the inlet of cooling air and MUST NOT BE OBSTRUCTED.

Fans are located on the front door of the mainframe

Cooling Fan Failure IF THE COOLING FANS ONTHE SWITCHER MAINFRAME SHOULD STOP FOR ANY REASON, THEN THE SYSTEM SHOULD BE SWITCHED OFF IMMEDIATELY OR PERMANENT DAMAGE MAY RESULT. Depending on the length of time the mainframe has been run with no fan the unit may need to be returned for checking and repair. Contact Grass Valley or your Grass Valley dealer to discuss the situation.

Environment and Location Mainframe Location and Environment
Mounting the Kula Mainframe into a 19″ Rack
Note: The Kula Mainframe is heavy (14kg ­ 30.3lb) and will require two people to lift into position, using correct lifting procedures. If you are unsure of the lifting procedures, ask a Health and Safety adviser for information.
The Mainframe will require an 2RU space within a rack system. Please read the above warning before attempting to fit the mainframe into a rack.
1 Check that the rack is rigid enough for the mainframe. 2 A suitable rack tray will be needed in the rack to take the weight of the
mainframe. The mainframe rear will become heavier when the BNC cables are connected. 3
Note: If the rack tray has sides, make sure that they do not block the ventilation holes on the sides of the mainframe.
4 When in position in the rack, there are 2 pre-cut slots (mounting holes) running down each side of the front of the mainframe, to access the mounting holes, the mainframe front door will have to be opened. To do this; unscrew the door locking screws on either side of the door, then pull outwards and lower (as shown in the diagram below).
5 The mainframe is fastened to the rack system using 4x M6 (1/4 inch) screws (screws are available from rack suppliers).

With the rack mount ears in the horizontal position, the unit can be secured to a desk using 4x screws
29

Environment and Location Ancillary Panels
Half 19″ Rack Mount The mounting brackets may also be set to a vertical position to fit the unit into a 19″ rack, the unit is 1RU high and only half 19″ wide, so will need to have support from below using a rack mount tray, as only one side of the unit can be secured to the rack sides.

Support for the unit with a rack tray

The unit is secured to the rack on one side only.

19″ Rack Mount using two Mav Remote units with a Joining Plate
Two Mav Remote units can be joined together using a joining plate, which allows the units to span across the full width of the rack and fasten to the rack without the support of a rack tray.

The units are joined using a “Joining Plate” Note: The Mav Remote must have ventilation to allow cooling, and must not be installed into an enclosed space.

Power Supplies
Mainframe Internal Power Supplies
The information below gives an overview of the power supplies used in the Kula mainframes.
Note: To reduce the risk of electric shock, plug each power supply cord into separate branch circuits employing separate service grounds.
The Kula Mainframe is supplied as standard with two power supplies, one power supply is able to run a fully populated mainframe. The other power supply is for redundancy.
Note: To ensure full dual redundancy, the two power supplies must be powered from independent power sources.
This symbol indicates that hazardous voltages are present inside. No User Serviceable Parts inside the power supplies. This unit should only be serviced by trained personnel. The power supplies for the Kula mainframe are retained within the mainframe body, there are no On/Off switches for the power supplies. The mainframe will power up as soon as the AC Power Cables are plugged into the IEC connectors and turned On at the AC mains supply.
Checking the Kula Power Supplies
Kula mainframe power supplies are hot-swappable. Replacing power supplies should only be attempted by qualified personnel. To see that the power supplies are working correctly, when mains power is applied, a green power LED is lit (as shown below).

Left PSU removal screws

Power Supplies Control Surface External Power Supplies
Caution! The Power Supplies have NO user serviceable parts inside and if one should become faulty, it should be replaced immediately.
Control Surface External Power Supplies
The Kula Control Surface is supplied with 2 external 12V power supplies. One of the power supplies powers the control surface, the other is for redundancy. Caution! The Power Supplies have NO user serviceable parts inside and are welded shut. Do not attempt to open the power supply cases.

Snap and Lock type connector Note: Make sure that the mains power is turned Off before connecting the PSU to the control surface.
The power supply connector plug that connects to the control surface is a 4 pin “Snap and Lock” type, care should be taken when connecting and un-connecting.
Note: Do not allow the power supplies to hang freely from the control surface. Make sure that the cables are not under any stress.
