Maintenance
This section describes maintenance procedures for the 1.2 GHz GS7000 Remote PHY Device (RPD) 2X2
Segmentable Node.
Opening and Closing the Housing
Installation or maintenance of the node requires opening the housing to access the internal modules.
Proper housing closure is important to maintaining the node in good working condition. Proper closure ensures
a good seal against the environment, protecting the internal modules.
Opening the Housing
Open the housing as follows.
1. Remove the bolts securing the lid to the base.
2. Carefully open the lid to allow access to the inside of the housing.
3. Inspect gaskets on the cover flange and on the test port plugs.
4. Replace any gaskets showing signs of wear (cracked, twisted, pinched, or dry) with new, silicon-lubricated
gaskets.
Closing the Housing
Close the housing as follows.
1. Ensure any worn gaskets are replaced, and the gaskets are clean and in the correct position.
2. Carefully close the lid.

    Maintenance Forward/Reverse Configuration Module, Equalizer, and Node Signal Director Replacement Procedure Forward/Reverse Configuration Module, Equalizer, and Node Signal Director Replacement Procedure The forward and reverse configuration modules, equalizers, and node signal directors plug into the RF amplifier assembly through cut-outs in its cover. To remove these modules, pull up carefully on their integrated handles until they separate from the RF amplifier assembly.
  • Page 9 Maintenance RF Amplifier Assembly Replacement Procedure Note The screw locations are identified by number, 1 through 7. Insert a flat-blade screwdriver into the small holes in the metal handles on each side of the RF amplifier assembly and pry up carefully to disconnect the RF amplifier assembly’s rear panel connectors. Important Be careful not to damage the housing with the screwdriver.

    Maintenance Care and Cleaning of Optical Connectors Grasp the two metal handles on the RF amplifier assembly and carefully lift the RF assembly out of the housing. To replace the RF amplifier assembly in the housing, carefully align the assembly in the housing, lower it into place and push down to reconnect the rear panel connectors.
  • Page 11: Recommended Equipment

    Maintenance Recommended Equipment Cleaning fiber-optic connectors can help prevent interconnect problems and aid system performance. When optical connectors are disconnected or reconnected, the fiber surface can become dirty or scratched, reducing system performance. Inspect connectors prior to mating, clean as needed, and then remove all residues. Inspect connectors after cleaning to confirm that they are clean and undamaged.

    Maintenance Verifying Equipment Operation 5. It is also recommended that all connectors be visually inspected after cleaning to verify the connector is clean and undamaged. Verifying Equipment Operation Perform circuit turn-up. If the equipment does not come up, i.e., fails verification or indicates a reflection problem, clean the connectors and bulkheads again.
