5.4 Connecting Grounding Cables Between Cabinets

5.4.1 Overview

The HLR9820 adopts joint grounding. Except that the PGND cable of each cabinet is
grounded through the DC distribution cabinet, the grounding cables of each cabinet
must be interconnected to form an equipotential body.

The GND and PGND input terminals of the cabinets are equipotential because they
are connected before delivery.

The grounding terminals of different components inside the cabinet are


interconnected through the grounding bars on both sides of the cabinet.

The grounding bars are connected to the PGND of DC distribution cabinet through
the PGND cables of the cabinet, and then to the PGND bar in the equipment room
through the DC distribution cabinet.

The interconnecting grounding cables between cabinets include:


z Grounding cables of the cabinet
z Interconnecting grounding cables for the grounding bars between adjacent
cabinets

5.4.2 Grounding Cabinets

The cabinet must be grounded at front door, back doors and side panels.

To ground the cabinet, perform the following:

Huawei Technologies Proprietary

5-12
Installation Manual - Hardware Installation Chapter 5 Installation of Power Cables and Grounding
HUAWEI HLR9820 Home Location Register Cables

1) Use 10AWG PGND cables to connect the grounding terminals on cabinet doors
(front and back) and side panels with corresponding grounding bolts on the
cabinet, as shown in Figure 5-5.
2) Use an 8AWG cable to connect them with the Φ6 screw hole on the grounding
bars on both sides of the cabinet.

Figure 5-5 Cabinet grounding

5.4.3 Connecting Grounding Bars of Adjacent Cabinets

To install and bind other cables conveniently, interconnect the grounding bars of
adjacent cabinets after installing all cables.

Use short-circuiting cables to interconnect the upper, the middle and the lower parts
of PGND busbars of adjacent cabinets. The short-circuiting cable is a 300 mm long
10AWG one, with O-type terminals on both ends.

A.4 Assembling Cabling Ladder


The cabling ladder is composed of channel-section steel (vertical beam) and cross stay
(horizontal beam).
To assemble the cabling ladder, secure the channel-section steel with the cross stays
using fastener, with a 250 mm spacing reserved between cross stays. Because the
hole spacing of the channel-section steel is 50 mm, install one cross stay every other 5
trough holes.
If you use the assembled cabling ladder to install the cabling rack horizontally in the
equipment room, face the bolt head of the cabling ladder down to facilitate the
installation of the cabling trough.
Figure A-21 shows the structure of a cabling ladder.

Figure A-21 Basic structure of cabling ladder

If a long cabling ladder is required, many segments of cabling ladder can be joined end
to end with channel-section connecting pieces, as shown in Figure A-22. If the length of
the cabling ladder is not the integral multiple of 2.5 m in the actual installation, cut off
the remainder and apply touch-up painting with a brush at the cross-section to produce
the antirust effect and a better appearance.

A.5 Installing Cabling Trough


Because the cabling trough is cone-shaped, wedge the thin end of the cabling trough
into the thick end of another cabling trough for about 250 mm.
When using a 200 mm wide or 400 mm wide cabling trough, directly place the cabling
trough on the cabling ladder. Then secure the cabling trough on the cabling ladder with
the fixing clip of the cabling trough. For each segment of the cabling trough, place four
such clips symmetrically on both sides.
Figure A-23 shows the connection and installation of the cabling troughs.

Figure A-23 Installing 200 mm wide or 400 mm wide cabling trough

If you use a 600 mm wide cabling ladder, joint a 200 mm wide trough and a 400 mm
wide trough together to engage the cabling ladder.
To install the cabling trough, use connecting clip to joint two cabling troughs together.
For each segment of cabling trough, use three connecting clips. Then secure the
cabling trough on the cabling ladder with the fixing clip.
When lengthening the cabling trough, the connection is the same as the previous mode.

A.6 Jointing Cabling Racks


A.6.1 Overview

This section introduces the methods to joint cabling racks in different situations, and the
connection of cabling ladders against walls.

A.6.2 Jointing on Horizontal Surface

There are two installation modes available for jointing the cabling rack perpendicularly
in the same surface level, depending on whether cabling trough is used.

I. Cabling Ladder Without Cabling Trough

If the crossed cabling racks comprise cabling ladders only, use angle connecting pieces
and fasteners to joint two cabling ladders. Make sure that two cabling ladders are in the
same horizontal plane, as shown in Figure A-25.

(1)

(1) Angle connecting piece


Figure A-25 Horizontal turning of cabling ladder

II. Cabling Ladder With Cabling Trough

When either of the crossed cabling racks is or both are equipped with a cabling trough,
there must be a height difference (about a cabling trough) between two cabling racks.
That is, the cabling ladder of one cabling rack must be in the same level with the cabling
trough of the other cabling rack to ensure a smooth turning on the cabling rack.
Figure A-26 shows how to install the cabling ladder.
Use angle connecting pieces and fasteners for the connection. However, the
installation method of the angle connecting piece is slightly different from that shown in
Figure A-25.

A.6.3 Lap-jointing of Cabling Racks

When ascending or descending the cabling ladder, make a small segment of cabling
ladder into a climbing ladder. Use angle connecting pieces and fasteners for the
connection.
Figure A-27 shows the perpendicular jointing of the cabling ladders. The left figure
shows the jointing at the front and the right figure the jointing at the sides. Pay attention

Add insulating plate and insulating washers to ensure insulation between the cabling
rack and the wall.
Meanwhile, use a big flat washer 8 (φ8 washer in GB96-85) to replace the washer
attached to the expansion bolt so as to increase the contact area of the washer and the
insulation washer.

A.7 Suspension or Ground-supporting Installation of Cabling


Racks
If you do not place the cabling rack against the wall, use suspension mode or
ground-supporting installation mode.
In the suspension installation, the cabling rack is connected with the ceiling. In
ground-supporting installation, the cabling rack is mounted to the floor.
The parts used for the connection include:
z Channel-section steel
z Angle connecting pieces
z Fixtures
z Expansion bolts
Use two pieces of channel-section steel to connect the cabling ladder to the ceiling or
the ground. The installation methods are the same as that of the wall installation.
Each piece of channel-section steel is 2.5 m long. Cut it to a proper length according to
the height of the cabling rack and that of the equipment room.
If the required length is longer than 2.5 m, joint two pieces of channel-section steel in
the same way as connecting the cabling ladder.
Use the channel-section connecting piece for the connection and paint the cross
section for rust protection.
Because the distance between holes is 50 mm on the channel-section steel, the
distance of the suspenders or the supporting rods must be an integral multiple of 50
mm. The recommended spacing is 1250 mm, that is, each segment of the cabling
ladder is carried by two sets of suspenders or supporting rods.
When using the suspension mode or ground-supporting mode, install the suspenders
or the supporting bars at the outer side of the cabling ladder to facilitate the placement
of cabling trough. At the same time, to ensure the insulation between the suspension or
ground-supporting parts and the ceiling or ground, apply insulating plates and
insulating washers during installation.Figure A-30 shows the suspension installation
and ground-supporting installation.

A.8 Wall-supporting Installation of Cabling Racks


If you place the cabling rack against the wall, mount a triangular support.
Weld the triangular support and fix it onto the wall using expansion bolts. There are
some holes for installing cabling ladder on the horizontal beam of the triangular
support.
The triangular support has three specifications that suit the 200 mm wide, 400 mm wide,
and 600 mm wide cabling ladders respectively. Triangular supports with larger size can
be used to support smaller cabling ladders, but it is not recommended. Their installation
dimensions on the wall are the same.
To install the triangular support, perform the following:
1) Mount the triangular support onto the wall using expansion bolts.
2) Use the big flat washer 8 (φ8 washer in GB96-85) to replace the flat washer
attached to the expansion bolt.
3) Install two insulation plates between the vertical beam of the triangular support
and the wall.
4) Fix insulation washer (one for each nut) between the nut and the vertical beam.
The spacing between two triangular supports must be a multiple integer of 50 mm.
Otherwise, the cabling ladder and the triangular supports cannot be fixed together. The
recommended spacing is 1250 mm, that is, each cabling ladder must be supported by 2
triangular supports.
To install the cabling ladder, perform the following:
1) Place the cabling ladder on the beams of the triangular support.
2) Match the holes in the lower side of the channel-section steel with the installation
holes in the beams of the triangular support.

Figure A-34 Installing cable-through rack without cabling trough

The holes at the upper row are used for installing the cable-through rack.
If the cabling rack comes with a cabling trough, fix the cabling trough through the holes
at the lower row of the cabling rack. In this way, the upper plane of the cabling rack
stays at the same level with the uppermost plane of the cabling rack, facilitating routing
of cables.
Generally, the cable-through rack is installed on the cabling ladder on the cabinet top.
The number of cable-through racks to be mounted and the locations depend on actual
condition on site.

A.10.3 Installing Protective Rings, End Caps and Bushings

I. Protective Rings

Fit protective rings directly on both sides of the cabling trough. By adding the protective
rings, the edge of the cabling trough is heightened to prevent cables from getting over
the cabling trough. Use four protective rings for each segment of cabling trough.
Distribute the rings evenly on both sides, as shown in Figure A-23.

II. End Caps

Installed at the ends of the cabling ladder, the end caps are used to prevent unintended
damage to cables and produced a better appearance. Install end caps wherever
possible.

Use special stripping tool or electrical knife. It is recommended to use the AM35 wire
stripper for round cables.
To strip the cable, perform the following:
1) Measure the cable length to be stripped.
The stripped cable length depends on the length of the crimping sleeve behind the
bare pressure terminal. For the JG bare pressure terminal commonly used by
Huawei, the length of stripped cable is given by:
L1=L2 + (2 ~ 3 mm)
Where
z L1 is the stripped cable length
z L2 the length of the effective crimping area of the JG terminal.
2) Remove the multi-strand core wires at the insulation layer of the terminal end, and
strand them tightly.
The stranding direction should be the same as the original merging direction of the
core wires.
Figure B-3 shows how to strip a cable.

C.2.2 Stripping and Cutting Cables

Strip the cable based on the cable structure and dimensions shown in Figure C-2 and
Figure C-3.
Cables assembled with RJ45 connectors come in two types:
z Round communication cable
z Flat telephone line
Figure C-4 and Figure C-5 show the two types of cables respectively.
When stripping the round communication cable and the flat telephone line, make sure
that the end of the sheath is neat and the cutting angle is vertical to the cable.
For a shielded cable, avoid damaging the shield layer when stripping the protection
layer. After stripping the protection layer, fold the shielding layer backwards to the root
of the cable sheath, as shown in Figure C-4.
Cut core wires neatly, especially the round communication cables. Before cutting,
spread the core wires evenly apart and cut them neatly with the cutting tool, as shown
in Figure C-5.
The structure and dimensions of the truncated cable must be in accordance with the
requirements shown in Figure C-5.That is, either the round communication cable or the
flat telephone core wire must be equal to "L" in length.

L+(2~3mm)

of the main label and the assistant label.
z Affix the labels in good order.
z Bundle the cable ties in the same position of power cables, with identification
plates facing the same side.
z Use two-digit figure, 01-99, to express cabinet number (excluding cabinet row
number), subrack number, slot number or cable serial number when the total
number is less than 100. If the number exceeds 100, it should be represented by
three digits or more.

D.3 Engineering Labels for External Alarm Cables


Connect the external alarm cables with the first user cabinet in each row used for power
distribution. Labels affixed to the first cabinet of each row must indicate which
equipment is using the access terminal. Labels are unnecessary on the equipment side
unless otherwise required. In this case, fill Area 1 of the label only. Face this side
outwards. If the customer has special requirement, fill the label as required on site.)

For example, A01 is the cabinet in row A and column 01.

Generally, the above numbering method is enough to identify the position of a specific
cabinet. If cabinets are installed back to back, the facing direction of the cabinet must
be indicated, and numbering method like MNO (Meaning of MN is the same as that
mentioned above) is used. Here “O” means the direction of the cabinet, which can be
“A” or “B”. On the cable labels described below, this numbering method is used unless
otherwise stated.
The label on the alarm cable carries simple information, and only part of the text area
needs to be filled. It is recommended to keep the label in full length instead of cutting off
the blank part.
Figure D-7 shows a label on the alarm cable, where "A01" indicates that the alarm

MN(BC) − –48 MN (BC): BC is written right under MN, as shown in Figure D-13.
V1 On the loaded cabinet side, only MN is used to identify the
cabinet.
MN(BC) − –48
V2 On the power distribution equipment side, MN identifies the row
and column numbers of the power distribution equipment like the
MN(BC) control cabinet and distribution box, while BC identifies the row
−BGND and column numbers of the –48 V wiring terminal.
If there is no row number or column number, or the wiring terminal
MN(BC) can be identified without them, BC can be omitted. BGND and
−PGND PGND have no need to identify row and column numbers

The label only carries location information about the opposite-end equipment, the
control cabinet or the distribution box, Information of local end is unnecessary.

Table D-7 only lists the information of two –48 V power supplies on the label. The
information for other DC voltages (such as 24 V and 60 V) should be given in similar
methods.
Make sure that labels are affixed in correct direction. That is, after the cable ties are
bundled onto the cable, the identification plates with the labels face outwards, and the
text on the labels in the same cabinet runs in the same direction, as shown in Figure
D-13.

Figure D-13 Labels on a DC power cable

On the loaded cabinet side, the label marked with “A01/B08-–48 V2” on the cable
indicates that the cable feeds –48 V2 DC supply. This cable is connected to the 8th
wring terminal in the second row of –48 V busbar in the cabinet in row A, and column 1
in the equipment room.
On the distribution box side, the label marked with “B03-–48 V2” indicates that the
cable feeds –48 V2 DC supply. This cable is connected to the loaded cabinet in row B
and column 03 in the equipment room.
In the power distribution cabinet (or the first power cabinet of a row in the transmission
equipment room), every terminal block on the –48 V busbar has a numeric
identification.
For example, in the above label of "A01/B08-–48 V2", "08" (or sometimes "8") is the
numeric identification of the terminal block.
The PGND and the BGND are two copper bars, on which the terminal blocks are
short-circuited, therefore which terminal is connected makes no difference. It is only
necessary to give the row and column of the power distribution cabinet, instead of
giving the specific serial number of the terminal block on the copper bar.
For example, if the label on the loaded cabinet side is “A01-BGND”, it means that the
power cable is a BGND that connects the BGND copper bar in the power distribution
cabinet in row A, column 01 in the equipment room. Information on the labels for PGND
cables should be given in a similar way.

F.10 Requirements for Power Supply in Equipment Room


F.10.1 Requirements for AC Power Supply

The AC power supply system consists of mains, Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS)
and electric generator set. It supplies power in an integrated mode. The low-voltage
power supply system uses three-phase five-wire mode or mono-phase three-wire
mode. Table F-7 lists the requirements for the nominal voltage and frequency of the
low-voltage AC.

Table F-7 AC voltage and frequency

Nominal voltage Rated frequency


110/127/220/380(V) 50 Hz

The AC backup power supply is in the same phase with the mains. The UPS–mains
switchover duration must be less than 10 ms. Otherwise, the equipment may be
restarted or reset.
In determining the AC capacity in the equipment room, you need to take the working
current and fault current into account. Each individual must have an independent AC
distribution protection device. The protection switch must be greater than those of the
electricity device.
In designing the DC power supply system, you need to take the maximum payload in
dynamic and static conditions into account. Besides, you need to reserve the margin.
The cabling in the power distribution panel must be figured out based on the maximum
capacity of the supplied power supply payload. In this way, you can decide the type and
size of the conducting wire.
The following lists the specific requirements for the voltage of AC communications
equipment and power equipment:
z For the communications equipment adopts AC power supply, the voltage range is:
rated value-15% to rated value+5%.
z For the power equipment and important buildings, use the AC power supply. The
allowed voltage range is: rated voltage value-15% to rated voltage value+10%.
z The permitted AC frequency fluctuation ranges “frequency±4%”. The sinusoidal
distortion rate of the voltage waveform is smaller than or equal to 5%.
The generator set shall have the following functions:
z automatic power on and off
z automatic recruitment
z remote communication
z remote control
z remote measurement

z standard interface and communication protocols


The following lists the specific requirements for the AC and DC power cable:
z The AC neutral for communications must use the conducting wire that has the
same cross section as the phase cable.
z Select the DC power feeder according to the long-term payload. If the cross
section exceeds 95 mm2, use the hard bus cable. If there is a great difference
between the recent and long-term payload, make the cabling by stages.
z The conducting wire is fire-resistant. Route the conducting wire according to the
local regulations, and set the low-voltage power distribution room according to the
local regulations, too.
The recommendations for AC power supply are as follows:
Use the voltage-regulator in the following situations:
z When the communications equipment is powered directly by the mains, the power
supply voltage exceeds the rated voltage by –10% to +5%, or the voltage range
allowed for the communications equipment.
z When the communications equipment is not powered directly by the mains, the
mains voltage exceeds the rated voltage by –15% to +10%, or the AC input
voltage range allowed for the DC power equipment.
To ensure the normality of power supply, use the UPS or inverter.
Configure the generator set for the office to ensure the normal communication in case
of mains failure. The capacity of the generator set is greater than or equal to 1.5–2
times of the continuous power supply equipment.
Connect two sets of storage batteries in parallel. There usually is only one set of UPS
battery, and a set of backup UPS battery should be configured. If the inverter or UPS is
used, select the active inverter that can provide the maximum power. A standby inverter
should be configured.

F.10.2 Requirements for DC Power Supply

Place the power equipment near the telecom equipment to make the DC feeder as
short as possible. To reduce the power consumption and installation cost, the loop
voltage drop from the battery port to the equipment port should be smaller than 3.2 V.
Use two or more independent power supply system when the office has heavy traffic or
more than two switching systems.
Configure multiple power supply systems in different floors for the large-scale office.
They supply power respectively to different equipment rooms.
Configure a centralized power room or battery room for the office with medium traffic, or
adopt the distributed power supply mode.
Use the integrated power supply for the office with small traffic. Note to prevent the
corrosive gas released by the battery from eroding the circuit board.

The recommendations for DC Power Supply are as follows:


z Adopt the dispersed power supply mode. Use multiple DC power supply systems
and set power equipment in multiple positions.
z Adopt the standard DC power supply system, and set the output voltage of the
communications equipment to fall within the required range.
z Improve the reliability of the AC power supply system, and reduce the storage
batteries. For the small offices, add more storage batteries if it is difficult to
enhance the reliability of the AC power supply system.
z The total capacity of the high-frequency switch rectifier must satisfy the power of
the communication loading and battery charging.
z Configure the backup rectifier modules. If there are no more than 10 active
modules, configure one backup module. If there are more than 10 active modules,
configure one backup module for every 10 active modules.
z Install the storage batteries in two or more groups. The capacity is determined by
the duration when the storage batteries supply power to the load. For most offices,
the batteries should be able to supply power for one hour at least.
