Laser

CAUTION
When handling optical fibers, do not stand close to, or look into the optical fiber outlet with
unaided eyes.

Laser transceivers or transmitters are used in the optical transmission system and associated test
tools. Because the laser that is transmitted through the optical fiber produces a small beam of
light, it has a very high power density and is invisible to human eyes. If a beam of light enters
the eye, the retina may be damaged.
Normally, staring into the end of an unterminated optical fiber or broken optical fiber with the
unaided eyes from a distance of more than 150 mm [5.91 in.] will not cause eye injury. Eyes
may, however, be damaged if an optical tool such as a microscope, magnifying glass or eye
loupe is used to stare into the bare optical fiber end.
Read the following guidelines to prevent laser radiation:
l Only the trained and authorized personnel can perform the operation.
l Wear a pair of eye-protective glasses when you are handling lasers or optical fibers.
l Ensure that the optical source is switched off before disconnecting optical fiber connectors.
l Never look into the end of an exposed optical fiber or an open connector if you cannot
ensure that the optical source is switched off.
l To ensure that the optical source is switched off, use an optical power meter.
l Before opening the front door of an optical transmission system, ensure that you are not
exposed to laser radiation.
l Never use an optical tool such as a microscope, a magnifying glass, or an eye loupe to look
into the optical fiber connector or end.
Read the following instructions before handling optical fibers:
l Only the trained personnel can cut and splice optical fibers.
l Before cutting or splicing an optical fiber, ensure that the optical fiber is disconnected from
the optical source. After disconnecting the optical fiber, use protecting caps to protect all
the optical connectors.

3.3.5 Replacing the UELP


The UELP is used for E1/T1 surge protection of the BBU. Each UELP provides surge protection
for four E1/T1 signals. The UELP replacement interrupts the E1/T1 links. Thus, the ongoing
BTS services are disrupted.

Prerequisite
l The number and types of faulty UELPs are determined, and new UELPs are kept ready.
l The installation positions of the UELP and the interconnection relations of the cables on
the UELP panel are recorded.
l The required tools and materials such as ESD wrist strap/ESD gloves and ESD box/ESD
bag are kept ready.
