Line circuit interfaces 3

Peripheral equipment line circuits


The basic function for each line pack is to provide the interface between the subscribers
line and the DMS-10. This interface is necessary for the following purposes:
To terminate the tip (T) and ring (R) conductors with a balanced 600- or 900-
termination (depending on the pack type)
To provide a dc battery supply from ground and -48 V through a 200 x 200-
balanced-feed resistance
To supervise the loop current to determine on-hook/off-hook status
To provide connection of the ringing current to the loop
To provide isolation of foreign potentials on the loop from portions of the
transmission and signaling circuitry
To convert from the two-wire transmission path of the loop to the four-wire
transmission path of the system
To provide analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion of the
transmission signals

In addition, the line pack includes a common multiplexing and signaling circuit that
performs the following functions:
Interfaces the individual line circuits with the Peripheral Equipment (PE) bus
signaling channel
Re-times digital signals received from the PE bus
Decodes address information received from the PE bus and enables individual line
circuits during selected timeslots

PPM line circuits


Periodic Pulse Metering (PPM) line packs allow the DMS-10 to record usage
information for local and toll calls from coin, PBX, and subscriber lines by transmitting
pulses. Pulses are either 12- or 16-kHz ac tone bursts of up to 256 milliseconds,
generated at rates from 1 pulse per 1000 seconds to 1 pulse per second (pps).

International line concentrating equipment line circuits


International Line Concentrating Equipment (ILCE) line circuit cards (NT6X17BA,
NT6X18BA, NT6X93, and NT6X94) can be provisioned only in International Line
Concentrating Module (ILCM) Line Drawers (NT6X05). Although the function of
ILCE line circuit cards in the DMS-10 system is essentially identical to that of PE line
circuit packs, ILCE line cards are physically much smaller than PE line packs (76.2 mm
90 mm versus 318.6 mm 254 mm) (3 inches 3.5 inches versus 12.5 inches 10 inches).

October 2004 Issue 22 Standard NTP 297-3401-184Z


4 Line circuit interfaces

ILCE line cards, however, contain only one circuit per pack, whereas PE line packs
contain either two or four circuits per pack.

Line circuit specifications


The dialing specifications for line circuits can be found in the NTP entitled System
Performance Specifications (297-3401-180Z).

Information about how to install and how to declare the line circuits in software is
contained in the NTP entitled Data Modification Manual (297-3401-311Z).

Information about to test and maintain the line circuits is contained in the NTPs entitled
Maintenance Diagnostic Input Manual (297-3401-506Z) and Maintenance and
Test Manual (297-3401-511Z).

Line circuits require the protection of 0.003-inch carbon block protectors (or
equivalent) on T and R terminals. Each line pack is equipped with relays that connect
the line circuit to the shelf maintenance bus for switching or testing purposes.

Line packs vary in the type of subscriber loop signals accommodated and the options
provided. The tables on the following pages present information on the type of loop
signals accommodated by and the options provided by DMS-10 line circuits.

Section 3: Trunk circuit interfaces


Introduction
This section outlines the functions, interconnections, and characteristics of the analog
trunks used to interface the DMS-10 with inter exchange or intra exchange trunks. The
information contained herein is to be used as a guide when designing or engineering the
connection of the DMS-10 to other switching systems. For more detailed information
on trunk packs, consult the schematic drawings (SDs).

Types of trunk circuits


The following trunk circuit packs are available for use with the DMS-10:
NT2T20: Four-Wire E&M Signaling Trunk
NT2T21: Two-Wire E&M Signaling Trunk
NT2T23: Miscellaneous Loop Trunk
NT2T24: Outgoing Loop Trunk
NT2T27: Four-Wire, E&M Signaling Trunk, Switch Pad Control
NT2T28: Four-Wire Pulsed E&M Signaling Trunk
NT2T85: Digital Recorded Announcement Trunk

Hardware options on the trunk unit and software options in the DMS-10 permit the
interfacing of E&M trunk units primarily with channel units associated with carrier
facilities. The loop trunk applications generally require the use of external voice
frequency (VF) equipment.

Digital trunks
Information on digital trunks is contained in the NTPs entitled General Description
(297-3401-100Z) and Equipment Identification (297-3401-150Z).

NTP 297-3401-184Z Issue 22 Standard October 2004


2 Trunk circuit interfaces

Trunk circuit functions


The basic functions for each trunk pack are the same: to provide the interface between
the trunk and the DMS-10. This interface is necessary for:
Digital-to-analog (D/A) and analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion of the signal
Direct current (dc) isolation from the facility
Scanning and signal distribution
Signal detection

Specifications of trunk circuits


Trunk circuits vary in the types of signaling they accommodate, their available options,
and in the types of trunks to which they can interface. These characteristics are listed
for each pack type (arranged according to pack number in Tables 3-A through 3-G.

The tables on the following pages present information on the types of signaling
accommodated by and the interface options of DMS-10 analog trunk circuits. The
trunk circuit packs are presented in numerical order by pack number. For each trunk
pack, there is a table providing trunk circuit characteristics.

Information about how to install and how to declare the trunk circuits in software can
be found in the NTP entitled Data Modification Manual (297-3401-311Z).
Maintenance and testing of trunk circuits is found in the NTPs entitled Maintenance
Diagnostic Input Manual (297-3401-506Z) and Maintenance and Test Manual
(297-3401-511Z).

Section 4: Test trunk circuit interfaces


Introduction
This section describes the Line and Trunk Test pack (NT2T19), which is used to test
various DMS-10 functions, and the DMS-10 test trunk circuit interfaces that are
required to interconnect and match the inputs/outputs of subscriber loop testing
equipment with the DMS-10. These circuits provide interfaces to the following manually
operated test equipment:
Noller NP612 Remote Test System
Badger NP612A Remote Test System
No. 14 Local Test Desk (LTD)
No. 3 Local Test Cabinet (LTC)
Model 3703 Local Test Cabinet (LTC)

These circuits also provide interfaces to the following automated test equipment:
Centralized Automatic Loop Reporting System (CALRS)
Loop Reporting System (LRS-1, LRS-10, LRS-100)
Mechanized Loop Testing (MLT) System

For a description of the test equipment and how it works when it is used to access a
subscribers line or equipment by way of the DMS-10, refer to the NTP entitled
General Maintenance Information (297-3401-500Z).

Incoming test trunk (NT2T16)


The Incoming Test Trunk (ITTK) pack (NT2T16) provides the interface between
DMS-10 and a No. 14 Test Desk (remote), No. 3 Test Cabinet (on-site), or a Model
3703 Test Cabinet. It may also be used to interface with a Loop Reporting System
(LRS-1, LRS-10, LRS-100), a Centralized Automatic Loop Reporting System
(CALRS), a Lordel T-9/15 Automatic Line Insulation Test (ALIT) set, or a
Mechanized Loop Testing (MLT) system.

NTP 297-3401-184Z Issue 22 Standard October 2004


2 Test trunk circuit interfaces

The ITTK pack allows testing of all DMS-10 subscriber loops by way of the
maintenance access bus (metallic access). The particular line to be tested is selected by
accessing the test trunk, then dialing the directory number (DN) of the subscriber loop
to be tested. Call processing recognizes the special class of service for the Incoming
Test Trunk and, instead of completing the call, connects the subscriber loop to the test
trunk.

Noller/badger interface
Three circuit packs (described below) provide the interface between the DMS-10 and a
Noller NP612 Remote Test System or a Badger NP612A Remote Test System. These
three packs are used to interface a Noller NP612 Master Station (at a central test
location) with a Noller NP612 Remote Test System and the subscriber loops served by
the DMS-10. The master station accesses subscriber loops by way of Direct Distance
Dialing (DDD) or toll network. Subscriber loops in the DMS-10 are accessed by the
maintenance access bus under control of the Noller Master Station.

Special test codes are used for the DMS-10, which constitute a departure from normal
Noller test procedures. See the NTP entitled General Maintenance Information
(297-3401-500Z) for connection information and special Noller test procedures.

Noller test trunk (NT2T17)


The Noller Test Trunk pack contains digital-to-analog (D/A) and analog-to-digital
(A/D) conversion circuitry. It provides the access to the maintenance bus of the DMS-
10 through the main distribution frame (MDF) cross-connections.

Miscellaneous line (NT2T03)


The Miscellaneous Line pack provides the three-wire terminating line necessary to
access the test equipment from the distant Noller master station. The third wire (S-
lead) is used to seize the test equipment. For additional information, see the ?Line
Circuit Interfaces section of this NTP

Auxiliary ringing and tone (NT2T40)


The Auxiliary Ringing and Tone pack demultiplexes the DMS-10 multifrequency ringing
supply to obtain four individual ringing frequencies. In addition, it supplies a +10 dBm
busy tone.
Note: The Auxiliary Ringing and Tone pack (NT2T40) is not required if the local
exchange has external equipment and uses only one ringing frequency, such as fully
selective or semiselective superimposed ringing.

NTP 297-3401-184Z Issue 22 Standard October 2004


Test trunk circuit interfaces 3

Line and trunk test pack (NT2T19)


The Line and Trunk Test pack tests the basic signaling and transmission functions of all
line and trunk circuit packs in the DMS-10 and also performs a self-test. The tests,
which are only Go/No-Go types of tests, verify whether the line and trunk circuits of
the DMS-10 are operational within preassigned limits.

Only one Line and Trunk Test pack is required for each DMS-10 system; the pack can
be located in any Peripheral Equipment shelf. An analog pack (NT2T15) and a logic
pack (NT2T18) are connected by a common faceplate to form the Line and Trunk Test
pack. Only one backplane edge connector is required; however, the width of the unit
requires two adjacent slots.

The Line and Trunk Test pack accesses the circuit under test (CUT) from both the
digital switching network (by way of a Peripheral Control pack) and the analog tip and
ring (by way of the maintenance access bus) or any other analog signaling leads.

The Line and Test Trunk pack is operated by the free-running Peripheral Equipment
Diagnostic (PED) program, which is loaded automatically once every 24 hours, if so
scheduled. Maintenance personnel can request an interactive version of this program to
test a particular line or trunk circuit pack for repair purposes.

The tests performed by the Line and Trunk Test pack are:
Transmission-for performance of the circuit in send or receive direction. Test tones
are generated (digital and analog) and the power content is measured. A return
loss test is also performed
dc measurements-for presence of talk battery, coin control signals, and reverse
battery as applicable
Off-hook detection-eight different terminations simulate possible loop conditions
Ring trip-checks that ringing is present, places a termination on the line, and checks
for removal of ringing
Self test-checks its own operation and reports failures to maintenance personnel by
way of the maintenance terminal

4 Test trunk circuit interfaces

Incoming/Outgoing Test Trunk pack (NT2X90AD)


The Incoming/Outgoing Test Trunk pack provides an interface between the Remote
Maintenance Module (RMM) in an IRLCM, and a No. 14 Local Test Desk (LTD), a
No. 3 Local Test Cabinet (LTC), a Centralized Automated Loop Reporting System
(CALRS), or a LORDEL T-915 Automatic Line Insulation Test (ALIT) set. The
Incoming/Outgoing Test Trunk pack enables the craftsperson to access the subscriber
lines located locally or remotely via the Metallic Test Access pair at the MDF. All
DMS-10 testing capabilities supported by the ITTK interface (NT2T16) are now
supported via the NT2X90AD pack at the remote site.

The NT2X90AD pack is only required when vendor test equipment is to be used for
subscriber loop testing. In the IRLCM, a single NT2X90AD pack can support up to
four IRLCMs co-located at the same remote site (same site ID).
