3 Hardware Check

3 Hardware Check

This chapter describes how to check the BSC configuration and HTS of the
boards inside the BSC.

3BK 17416 3001 RJZZA Ed.03 21 / 61


3 Hardware Check

Purpose

To check that the BSC configuration corresponds to the customer’s order.


To verify that the hardware level of the boards inside BSC is as requested
by the customer, by taking the rack inventory.

Procedure 1. Verify the presence and position of the boards according to the requested
configuration.
See Information Required
See Hardware Description - Racks Configuration
2. Perform the rack inventory.
Refer to CI-08 Site Equipment Inventory.

Check that there are no alarms of type “NOT IN CAL”, when running
Inventar for BTS. This ensures that the boards inside the BSC meet the
requirements of a specific customer.

4 Checking the Power Supply and Powering Up

4 Checking the Power Supply and Powering Up

This chapter describes the tasks to perform to check the power supply and
power up the BSC.

3BK 17416 3001 RJZZA Ed.03 23 / 61


4 Checking the Power Supply and Powering Up

4.1 Check the Rating of the Fuses


Procedure 1. On the customer power panel (cabinet), check for the existence of two DC
power supply distribution circuits. Each distribution circuit is provided with a
DC circuit breaker (fuse holder).
2. On the site power panel, disconnect the two -48V power supply lines (line A
and B) at the rack fuse holders.
3. Check that the fuse ratings are in accordance with the SPP— 27 document.

4.2 Discharge the Capacitors in the Racks


Procedure 1. At the customer power panel, make sure the two -48 V power supply lines
for BSC are disconnected.
2. Close (ON position) all the rack (and extension rack if applicable) circuit
breakers for 10 seconds.
3. Open (OFF position) all the rack circuit breakers.

4.3 Check the Polarity of the Power Supply Line, Branch A


Procedure 1. At the BSC top rack filter units for each rack (basic rack and extension racks
if applicable) remove the protection caps from the power supply terminals.
2. Connect the -48 V power supply (branch A) at the fuseholder.
Branch A is connected.

Branch A is associated with the fuseholder marked BAT A.

3. Using the multimeter, check the presence of -48V DC between BAT A and
BATRET for all racks (basic and extensions).
Check that no voltage is present between BAT B and BATRET for all racks.
4. Switch all the rack circuit breakers ON.
The DC/DC converters A01-A09 for all racks are powered up.
The DC/DC converters B71-B78 for all racks are not powered up.
NOTE : Converters B72 and B78 are removed starting from rack variant
3BK 06796 AAAC.
5. Switch all the rack circuit breakers OFF.
No board in the racks is powered up.
6. At the customer power panel, disconnect the -48 V power supply (branch A)
at the fuseholder.
Branch A is disconnected.

4.4 Check the Polarity of the Power Supply Line, Branch B


Procedure 1. Discharge the capacitors in the rack.
See Discharge the Capacitors in the Racks (Section 4.2)
2. At the BSC top rack filter units for each rack (basic rack and extension racks
if applicable) remove the protection caps from the power supply terminals.
3. Connect the -48 V power supply (branch B) at the fuseholder.

24 / 61 3BK 17416 3001 RJZZA Ed.03


4 Checking the Power Supply and Powering Up

Branch B is connected.

Branch B is associated with the fuseholder marked BAT B.

4. Using the multimeter, check the presence of -48V DC between BAT B and
BATRET for all racks (basic and extensions).
Check that no voltage is present between BAT A and BATRET for all racks.
5. Switch all the rack circuit breakers ON.
The DC/DC converters B71-B78 for all racks are powered up.
The DC/DC converters A01-A09 for all racks are not powered up.
NOTE : Converters B72 and B78 are removed starting from rack variant
3BK 06796 AAAC.
6. Switch all the rack circuit breakers OFF.
No board in the racks is powered up.
7. At the customer power panel, disconnect the -48 V power supply (branch B)
at the fuseholder.
Branch B is disconnected.

4.5 Power up the BSC Racks


Procedure 1. Switch ON the two power supply lines at the fuseholders.
2. Switch ON all the rack circuit breakers, powering up the racks.
3. All the boards take about 1 minute to run their self-tests.
Refer to BSS Methods Handbook to check LED states.
