If the D5 UEQ is mounted to an equipment rack, the rack itself should have a ground connection in accordance with applicable electric codes (typically using AWG #10 wire size). When using DC power, ground the D5 UEQ chassis using the grounding stud located near the power connectors (see graphic below); the DC power cord does not contain a chassis ground wire as does the AC power cord. The grounding stud may generally be connected even if DC power is not being used. Use a copper AWG #10 wire which will conduct a simultaneous fault current from both DC 16-Amp sources. Connect the wire from the grounding stud on the rear of the D5 UEQ chassis to a ground location that is appropriate for the local installation and codes; this may or may not be to the rack.

The Quick Start guide is designed to illustrate how the D5 Universal Edge QAM (D5 UEQ) is unpacked, configured, powered and setup to display video signals under a basic configuration.

Unpacking the D5 UEQ

The carton in which the D5 UEQ is shipped is specifically designed to protect the equipment from damage. Save all shipping materials in case the product needs to be returned to the manufacturer for repair or upgrade. Unpack the equipment carefully to ensure that no damage is done and none of the contents are lost. The D5 UEQ chassis package will minimally contain the following items: One D5 UEQ chassis One RJ45-to-DB9 serial cable One ESD strap D5 UEQ Quick Start Guide Warranty & Software License Agreement Along with the following installed equipment: One Chassis Monitoring module (MON) One fan tray One AC or DC Power Supply Unit (PSU) module One PSU blanking cover plate One Power Converter module (PMOD) One PMOD blanking plate One Chassis front face plate One 512MB compact flash card Two front chassis mounting brackets with screws Eight rear blanking plates Two fuses DC power cable (DC chassis only)

Caution ! Heavy Load-The D5 UEQ weighs approximately 50 lbs (22.7 Kg) fully loaded. If necessary, have a second person hold the unit while mounting it to the rack.
Mounting the D5 UEQ properly will prevent uneven mechanical loading on the chassis, premature structural failure and potentially hazardous conditions. Optional rear rack mounting brackets may be required per local installation practices. Installation of the equipment in a rack should not restrict airflow. Air cooling and exhaust is accomplished from the sides of the D5 UEQ. Provide a minimum of 3.5 inches (although a seven inch gap is preferred) of side clearance on the fan intake (right) side and the fan exhaust (left) side of the unit. Although there is little thermal impact in stacking D5 UEQs directly on top of each other with no vertical spacing, ARRIS recommends a maximum of ten D5 UEQs in a 19 rack. When installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating temperature inside the rack environment may be higher than the ambient temperature. The ambient temperatures should be between 32 and 122 Fahrenheit (0 to 50 Celsius).


There are eight slots on the rear of the chassis. The slots are numbered from left to right in descending order as shown in the picture above. Slot numbers 1 through 6 are for QAM modules and slot number 7 is for the Wide Area Network (WAN) module. Slot number 8 is reserved for future use.

D5 UEQ Card Installation

The D5 UEQ may ship with cards (WAN and QAM) in separate packages. As stated earlier, the card installation slots are numbered one through eight in descending order from left to right. The WAN module must be installed in slot 7. QAM cards may be installed in any of the slots (numbered 1 through 6 above). Slot 8 is reserved for future use. Use this procedure to install cards in the D5 UEQ chassis, either during installation or afterwards as an upgrade. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Ground yourself properly with an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap. Remove QAM or WAN blanking plate. Align QAM or WAN card along desired chassis insertion tracks Slide card firmly into chassis along card insertion tracks. Pull latches inward to grasp first latch tooth. Push card thumb latches outward until the front card seating teeth catch the outer edge of the unit cage assembly. Push card thumb latches inward until card seats. The back card seating teeth will catch the inner edge of the unit cage assembly and pull it into a seated and locked position. Screw in card thumb latch screw to secure card in place.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

The D5 UEQ is designed to operate in an area that has up to 90 percent relative humidity, non-condensing. ESD can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD occurs when printed circuit modules are improperly handled. It may result in module failure or intermittent problems. To avoid ESD damage, follow these guidelines: 1 2 Always wear an antistatic wrist or ankle strap whenever handling the modules or port adapters. Ensure that the anti-ESD device makes good skin contact and is connected to any unpainted chassis frame surface to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to the ground.

The CLI interface port is the only direct physical connection on the front panel for executing CLI commands. CLI sessions can also be set up via telnet/SSH on the WAN. The maximum concurrent sessions allowed are four telnet, four SSH, one front panel session or four sessions if launched from the Navigation Window in the D5 UEQ Web Manager interface. The Ethernet test port is reserved for future use. To remove or replace the front face panel, use the following steps: 1 2 Locate the tabs on both sides of the D5 UEQ front panel. Press the tabs simultaneously to release the latches and then pull the faceplate away from the D5 UEQ. Removing the faceplate can be done during normal system operation without any adverse impact. To reinstall the faceplate, place it against the front of the D5 UEQ. Mate the faceplate properly with the connectors on the front of the system. Press the faceplate in firmly to latch it to the D5 UEQ.

Note: Do not use the grounding stud on the D5 UEQ for

ESD. This ground is for the D5 UEQ chassis only.

Quick Start Guide

Blanking Plates
It is critical that all blanking plates remain installed where there are no modules so that air flow will circulate correctly. Blanking plates serve three important functions. They prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they inhibit electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis.

DC Powering
Unlike the AC PSUs which have two plug-ins on the rear of the chassis, the DC PSU has only one connector on the rear of the D5 UEQ unit. It powers either/or both DC slots when you connect to the DC Input. If you have ordered only one DC PSU it will be shipped with the DC PSU in the lower PSU1 slot. If DC powering is chosen, the DC power source must: have reliable grounding (see Grounding above) be electrically isolated from its AC source have an over-current protection device rated at 16 Amp because the D5 UEQ has no fuse for DC power have a suitably rated disconnect device in the DC Mains feed Connect the supplied external DC cable assembly to 48V DC using a power distribution unit (see table below). The external DC cable assembly must not be modified in the field; route any excess length to avoid snags. Connect both Feed 1 and Feed 2 to 48V even if only one DC PSU is to be installed. This allows placing a single DC PSU in either of the two possible slots, or placing two DC PSUs in the chassis. The following diagram shows the connector and pin locations.

Connect the RJ45 connector on the cable to the RS/232 connector on the front of the D5 UEQ. Connect the other end of the serial port to your laptop or computer. If your computer only uses a DB25 serial port or a USB connector, a DB9to-DB25 or DB9-USB adapter will be needed in order to connect the cable. Using a terminal access program, setup your serial port for terminal emulation using: 38400/8 bit/no parity/1 stop/no flow control. If your emulator gives you the option to echo type characters locally, turn it off. Save your terminal emulator setup.

Connecting Cables
Depending on the configuration ordered, the D5 UEQ has a varying number of QAM cards. The following figure shows a typical configuration, with one WAN card (slot 7) and six QAM (downstream) cards (slots 1 - 6).

Setup-mode Configuration Script

The setup-mode configuration script is used to assist you in the initial setup of the D5 UEQ by interactively stepping you through the configuration process when the D5 UEQ is booted up. The setup-mode configuration script will ask you if you want to setup the D5 UEQ or will allow you to bypass the initial setup mode and enter the D5 UEQ command line interface (CLI) normally. During the setup process the configuration script will present you with options necessary to properly configure the D5 UEQs system-wide parameters including setting up: a CLI account, SNMP network management information, a name for the D5 UEQ, and other parameterscontinually stepping you to the next set of parameters. The setup-mode configuration script continually stores all of the entries into a temporary file until the completion of all tasks. After you have completed entering the configurations, the script displays all configuration changes and asks you to verify the configuration. You are then given the option to use this new configuration. If you choose to use the configuration, changes are propagated to the D5 UEQ and also saved on the compact flash card. The D5 UEQ will then be configured and ready to stream video. If you choose no then a warning is displayed and you are asked if you are sure. If you choose no again, your changes are discarded and you will be prompted to start from the beginning. If you dont want to start over then you are sent to the CLI login.

Gigabit Ethernet Ports

100Base-T Management

Conditional Access (CAS)

Follow these steps to connect cables to the D5 UEQ: Note: Connect all RF ports to SELV circuits (as defined in UL60950). Your headend must provide suitable protection between the RF ports and the CATV outside plant. 1 2 3 4 5 Connect the downstream cables to the QAM cards. Insert either fiber optic or copper Ethernet Small Form Pluggable (SFP) card into interface Gigabit Ethernet port 0/1 (GbE). Connect a fiber optic or Ethernet cable between GbE1 and the video feed. Connect an Ethernet cable between the Fast Ethernet Mgmt port 1 (ETH1) and the network bridge or router. Apply power to the D5 UEQ by plugging in the AC or DC power cord into the back of the chassis (See Power Requirements section.) The cooling fans should start to turn.

D5 UEQ Setup Configuration

Use the information in this section to create an initial configuration on the D5 UEQ. There are two ways to do this. The first set of instructions will walk you through setting up the D5 UEQ with CLI commands. The second set of instructions will use the Web Manager.Setup Using CLI You will access the D5 UEQ via the serial RS-232 connector on the front of the D5 UEQ and a PC linked with the supplied RJ45-to-DB9 cable (cable and RS-232 pinouts and pin locations shown below) to your serial port configured to terminal emulation mode.

Setup Mode-Configuration Script Example:

To run the setup-mode configuration script you will need the following information: IP addresses to be assigned to interfaces, CLI account surnames, and passwords. Cable plant configuration information: annex, frequencies, modulation, etc.

Power Requirements
The D5 UEQ chassis supports two hot-swappable, load-sharing Power Supply Unit (PSU) modules. A single PSU can provide all the power that a fully loaded system needs with a sufficient safety margin. If you order an additional PSU, it must be the same power (AC or DC) type and installed in the upper PSU2 slot.

Enabling a GigabitEthernet Interface

The WAN card provides four interface GigE ports for video transport (and requires IP addresses to be assigned to each port). Upon initial power up, the ports are shutdown by default. The following example configures the GigE1 port for video transport. All other GigE ports are disabled. Make changes as necessary for your deployment.

annex, inter-leaver, frequency, symbol rate, power and spectral inversion are associated to a single port but are configured on an RF connector basis. The ports are listed as Modulator Group 1 and 2 for each QAM slot <1 - 6>. For example, the equivalent CLI command interface QAM 1/1.2, addresses the second QAM channel on the first RF connector of the QAM module in slot 1. This correlates to the QAM Mod 1 tab, Modulator Group Port 1 and the second channel for each associated tab under the QAM configuration menu. All QAM channels are set to quad mode and disabled by default to prevent any QAM channels from interfering with existing cable channel admin state check boxes on the QAM submenu tabs, disabling or enabling a QAM channel. 1 2 3 4 From the Configure > Output drop-down menus, launch the QAM Port Modulation Setup for QAM X screen. From the QAM Module configuration tree, click the desired QAM icon. In the QAM box, select the Annex type.

Enabling an Ethernet Interface

The Network Configuration screen utilizes the Ethernet Management Ports configure box to configure FastEthernet management ports for management access, speed and to assign a duplex mode. The primary, mask and broadcast IP addresses for the management ports are also configured here. The DHCP Client Management configure box is used to configure DHCP management on the specified interface. The Static Routing Table configure box is used to add and delete static routing tables. Note: ETH2 is disabled. Make changes as necessary for your deployment.
