PRACTICE 297-1001-122 RELEASE: 05.01 1. INTRODUCTION

GENERAL 1.01 This document describes the DMS-100 Family Alarm System that consists of hardware devices and software modules which together perform the following functions: * Generate audible and visual indications of trouble conditions detected within the DMS switching office, or in associated equipment. These indications alert maintenance personnel, and aid in the identification and location of the trouble. Provide manual facilities for: silencing audible alarms, transferring alarms to a remote monitoring location, grouping the alarms of a DMS office with those systems on other floors, of other

*

transferring alarms from an unattended Trunk Test Center (TTC) to the main DMS alarm system, controlling the office data loop circuit. * Provide a hardware generated Dead System alarm to alert maintenance personnel when the DMS system software is not functioning. Provide miscellaneous circuitry including the office Talk and Data Loop circuits, the 1 130 volt supplies for the remote alarm transfer circuit, and the 20 Hz ac ringing supply for the audible alarm subsets, as required. Provides circuitry between the Dead System Alarm (DSA) cards and the Network Management (NWM) Control for automatic level 3 Dynamic Overload Control Signaling (SDOC3) including automatic SDOC3 cutoff whenever DSA maintenance is being performed.

Alarm Circuit cards and Scan and SD cards can be located in any MTM shelf in the office. ALARM SYSTEM HARDWARE GENERAL 2. This practice describes common applications of Version 2 Page 9 . Version 2 software is compatible with Version 1 systems. but also contains equipment unrelated to the alarm system.01 Currently three different Office Alarm Systems exist: Version 1. Version 2 is flexible to suit particular requirements and offers such facilities as hardware diagnostic testing and loop closure to operate external alarm equipment or to distribute alarm indications to a maintenance center. while some. such as Scan and Signal Distribution (SD) cards. Some pieces of hardware are specific to one version.03 * * Enhanced Alarm System (EAS) is a variation of the Version 2 alarm system. The OAU is dedicated to the alarm system. The associated MTM contains the alarm system backup circuits which generate an alarm if the OAU fails. The OAU and the associated MTM communicate with the alarm system software in the Central Control through the Message System.01 2.05 The Version 2 OAS offers a wide range of alarm capability. Provisioning of OAS equipment forms part of the job engineering process for each office. the majority of the alarm detection and control hardware is located in the Office Alarm Unit (OAU) and in an associated Maintenance Trunk Module (MTM). It provides additional features such as: Low battery voltage detection A/B feed loss detection Remote alarm contacts Some differences between the two versions are: with regard to Alarm functions are partitioned differently Alarm Circuit cards. to suit the demands of a particular office. are common.02 * * * 2. Version 1 systems employ a modified Maintenance Trunk Module (MTM) to house most of the Office Alarm System (OAS) hardware.PRACTICE 297-1001-122 RELEASE: 05. Interconnections of alarm system equipment can be made at the Alarm Crosspoint Field shelf or at the Distributing Frame (DF) and are available as required. regardless of whether or not it is dedicated to the alarm system.

The alarm system software checks for changes in the alarm status of these subsystems every five seconds and updates the audible and visual alarm indications accordingly. for purposes of SYSTEM DETECTION 2. 2. 2.08 Scan point and Signal Distribution point the OAS are described in 297-1001-451. These software alarms.09 Alarm and control inputs generated by the software of the other nine maintenance subsystems which complete the DMS maintenance subsystem (297-1001-106) are designated system inputs. Centralized Automatic Message Accounting (CAMA) suspension. and illustration. are interfaced with the alarm system software through table SFWALARM. for example.10 Software subsystems which are not represented on the maintenance system status display can also generate alarms. and are reported to maintenance personnel through the External (Ext) Alarms subsystem.07 Alarm and control inputs detected by the alarm system hardware are interfaced with the alarm system software through scan points.11 Detected trouble conditions are classified in three levels of severity according to the urgency to respond to the trouble condition.01 components. These scan points detect inputs generated by hardwired alarm contacts in the DMS hardware. or to return the affected equipment to normal operation. Trouble conditions are assigned to an alarm class by the maintenance subsystem which detects the trouble. The software responds to alarm or control inputs by operating or releasing the appropriate Signal Distribution (SD) points in the alarm system hardware. The software which monitors these scan points forms the External (Ext) Alarms subsystem of the DMS maintenance system (see 297-1001-517). The alarm Page 10 . assignments for gives examples of provisioning.06 The alarm system hardware is monitored and controlled by software. ALARM DETECTION 2. The silence (sil) command input on the MAP console is also detected in this way. Each maintenance subsystem controls its own alarm status display in the system status area of the Visual Display Unit (VDU) at the Maintenance and Administration Position (MAP) see 297-1001-520. or control function. 2.PRACTICE 297-1001-122 RELEASE: 05. or by the alarm circuits of miscellaneous equipment associated with the DMS office.
