Chapter 6 VT100 Terminal Emulation About VT100

About VT100
The optional VT100 feature lets you use the HST-3000 to emulate a VT100 terminal, allowing local access to network elements. During a VT100 session, you can retrieve circuit and service performance information, such as loss, margin, synchronization, performance (such as SES, ES, and UAS), and alarm information from network elements such as HTU-R, HTU-C, HRE, and SmartJack (NIU). Data from the network element appears on the HST’s screen. You can save this information to an ASCII file, print it, or export it. During a VT100 session, you can also configure and provision the accessed network element from the HST. Optionally, you can connect a USB keyboard to the HST to help configure or provision a network element. For information about emulating a VT100 session using the HST-3000, see “Emulating a VT100 terminal” on page 74. NOTE: For more information about the VT100 option and HST-3000 training, contact your JDSU sales representative.

VT100 cabling options
The VT100 emulation feature is available in two cabling configurations: standard and power. Each option is described in the following sections.

Standard This option allows you to attach the HST-3000 to a network cables element. The standard cable option includes the following:

There is no need to “condition” the LiIon battery. but it will need to go through three discharge/ charge cycles to fully recover. you may want to charge the battery fully so that you get the maximum run time for your first use. The battery is shipped with less than a full charge for maximum shelf life. It is also dark when the unit is unable to get battery data (not talking to the fuel gauge — flashing amber Batt LED) or when the capacity in error flag is set in the fuel gauge (solid amber LED).

The HST’s battery connector is located on the unit’s bottom panel. Some applications or modes require more power than others. When the battery level is at 25 percent or less. you may leave the power on and connect the AC power adaptor. so run time will vary based on the mode. the battery should be recharged.Chapter 9 Maintenance and Troubleshooting Maintaining the battery – The charger is a smart charger that monitors the charge cycle and reduces the current as the pack reaches full charge. It also has a fail-safe timer that will stop the charge cycle if the charger has been charging the pack for an abnormal amount of time. NOTE: You can test a circuit and recharge the battery at the same time. To charge the battery 1 Connect one end of the AC adapter to the connector on the battery.

The protection chip looks at the batteries themselves to make sure the voltage does not get too low and that a large amount of current is not drawn from the battery in a short period of time. The main reason for this is that the IC that protects the battery cells has removed the connections from the battery to all other circuitry inside the pack including the fuel gauge chip. After this. not flashing) to show that the fuel gauge chip or IC inside the pack is telling the HST it's capacity reading may be inaccurate. The Batt LED is lit amber (solid. Charging HST unable to get battery data Battery capacity inaccurate Solid Green Flashing Amber Solid Amber A solid amber Batt light or LED on the HST does not mean there are battery problems that need immediate attention.

HST-3000 Base Unit User’s Guide 105 . the battery cell voltage will get too low. the fuel gauge will assume 100% capacity when it is not. The HST will continue to run. It expects to see a full charge on the battery periodically. The reason for this is that the fuel gauge keeps track of energy going in and out of the battery. self discharge of the battery pack lowers the cell voltage and is not seen by the fuel gauge chip. If this does not happen. Adapter LEDs There are two LEDs on the adapter: POWER and CHARGE. – If an HST is used until it's battery is so low that it shuts itself off and it is continued to be turned on in an attempt to use it. – If the resetting / re-calibrating of the fuel gauge chip (holding the AutoTest key down on power up) is done when the battery is not fully charged. This sets the CI (capacity inaccurate) flag in the fuel gauge chip which will cause the HST's Batt LED to be lit amber.
