Chapter 1: Introduction

Product Description
Overview
The ACO-3901 Automatic Changeover Unit is a non-generic automatic
changeover unit that supports two input sources: the MTG-3901 Master
Time Generator or the CSD-3902 Clock System Driver.
The ACO-3901 provides redundant switching between a primary
MTG-3901, a secondary MTG-3901 and an external source (or between
a primary CSD-3902, a secondary CSD-3902, and an external source).
The switch from primary to secondary inputs can be isolated to a single
channel or made globally to the other available channels. Faults in input
signals are indicated through front panel LEDs and via an audible
alarm, heard on a speaker located on the ACO-3901 front module.
In the event of a power failure in the NEO frame, the ACO-3901
automatically switches to the external 24 volt source.

Main Features
The ACO-3901 Automatic Changeover Unit has the following features:
• Two sets of inputs from two MTG-3901 modules or two CSD-3902
modules
• One set of inputs from an external source
• Three-module construction, with a front module for active
electronics, a rear card for relays, and a back module for
connectivity
• Single-channel or global switching
• Automatic switching to backup sources
• Automatic switching to 24 volt external power source in the event
of power loss
• 24 V DC backup power supply unit
• User-configurable fail condition for electrical (threshold) or
legitimate signal (audio, video)
• Audio alarm in case of source or power failure
• Self-generating failed source outputs error list visible on card-edge,
CCS software, and CCS control panels

ensure proper functionality.

Input and Output Impedance on the ACO-3901-FM


On the ACO-3901-FM front module, there are several jumpers to set.
They can be divided into two groups:
• J3 and J4: These jumpers control the TC input impedance. The
available options are High and 600Ω.
• J7, J8, J11, J13, J14, and J15: These jumpers control the TC
output impedance. The available options are High and 600Ω.

Default Input on the ACO-3901-RM


The ACO-3901-RM rear module has a default input setting that will
become active in the event of a source failure. All 18 jumpers located
throughout the module must be set to either MTG/CSD 1 or ExtSrc as
the default input. To prevent inadvertently disabling the functionality of
the ACO-3901, the GlbMTG1Ext parameter must also be set to the
same option.
For example, if the jumpers are changed from MTG/CSD 1 to ExtSrc,
the GlbMTG1Ext parameter must also be changed to ExtSrc.
Similarly, if the GlbMTG1Ext parameter is changed from the default
MTG/CSD 1 to ExtSrc, all 18 jumpers must be set accordingly.

Telco Line on the ACO-3901-BM


The ACO-3901-BM back module is capable of accepting one or two
MTG-3901 (or CSD-3902) separate external inputs via the telco
connector. Set the J1 and J2 jumpers to either Line 1 or Line 2. See
Figure 2-6 for the location of the jumpers.
• Line 1: The inner conductors are used and the two MTGs or CSDs
share the same telco line.
• Line 2: The inner connectors are wired for the top MTG-3901 or
CSD-3902 module (MTG1), and the outer connectors are wired for
the bottom MTG-3901 or CSD-3902 module (MTG2); each MTG
or CSD module therefore has its own line.

Chapter 2: Installation and Removal

Upgrading ACO-3901 Firmware


Firmware upgrading is a routine procedure that you must perform to
install newer versions of software on NEO modules. CCS Pilot,
Co-Pilot, or Navigator software applications are required for this
procedure. When performing the upgrading procedure, check the
appropriate readme file to confirm which files are needed. Use care to
ensure that you upload the correct files to the intended module.
If for some reason the upgrade fails, the module may not respond to
controls and will appear to be non-functional. In that event, follow the
procedures described in “Correcting a Failed Upgrading Procedure” on
page 28.

Upgrading Procedure
Follow these steps to upgrade the firmware:
1. Download the most recent appropriate upgrade package from the
our Web site.
2. If the affected module has not been discovered, perform the
Discovery operation, as described in your CCS software
application manual or online help. (If you cannot discover the
device, see “Discovering Devices Using the Drag-and-Drop
Method” on page 26.)

2. If the affected module has not been discovered by your CCS


software application, enter the Build mode, and then drag or copy
and paste the module’s device icon from the catalog folder into the
Network or Discovery folder.
3. Right-click the device icon and then select Properties.
4. On the NRO or Device tab of the Navigation Properties box, enter
the IP address of the frame that holds the module. (See
Figure 2-14.)

To enter information into the frame and slot field (the third field in
CCS-3.0), follow the convention shown in Figure 2-15 on page 28. The
first number in the third field should always be 1. The second number
should always be 0. The third number is the slot number in the NEO
frame (for example, 10). Resource modules will now appear as 17 or 18
in this third number spot, instead of 101 and 102, as in earlier versions.
In the unlikely event that you cannot discover the frame, the number 0
may be used to represent the frame.

6. Continue upgrading your device’s firmware, starting with Step 3 on


page 25.

Correcting a Failed Upgrading Procedure


Firmware upgrades may fail in the event of network interruptions,
power failures, or if too much data is uploaded to the NEO module.
Often, uploads of too much data can occur for one of the following
reasons:
• The boot file (typically vxWorks.lzs) was accidentally uploaded
during the fl0 procedure, instead of the boot procedure.
• Files were sent to the wrong NEO module.
• The particular hardware version of the module requires only some
(but not all) of the available fl0 files.
• The upgrade .zip file was mistakenly sent to the module.
All of these problems can be corrected by re-installing the firmware
while in a fail-safe mode, as described in the following pages. When
you are performing this procedure, check the appropriate readme file to
confirm which files are needed. Use care to ensure that you upload the
correct files to the intended module.
Three general steps are involved in correcting a failed upgrading
procedure. These steps are found in the following sections:
1. “Setting the Module to Fail-Safe Loader Mode” (see below)
2. “Upgrading the Firmware in the Boot Folder in Fail-Safe Mode” on
page 29

parameter change and the second parameter change will not be
saved until 20 seconds after the second parameter change. There is
no limit to the number of changes that can be made within 20
seconds of each other. However, none of these changes will be
saved until 20 seconds after the last parameter change.
• When the FctryRcl (factory recall) parameter is set to Yes, the
module takes several seconds to reset all of the parameters. (See
the “Operator and All List Parameters” on page 40 or the “Tree
View Parameters” on page 75 to view the factory recall default
settings.) Setup parameters are not affected by the factory recall
mode.
• Some parameters will be locked out if certain settings are made.
When this occurs, a lock icon will appear beside the affected
parameters in the card-edge VFD.

GPO Pinouts
Table 1-3 on page 7 lists back module pins of the DB-15 connector that
include the GPI output closures labelled GPO_CL1 and GPO_CL2.
These two pins are controlled by a number of parameters that begin on
page 50 in the Operator and All List, and page 80 of the Tree View.
To configure the two GPOs, enable or disable those parameters (shown
in the following excerpt from pages 50 to 51 of the Operator and All
List). Although the names of the parameters begin with “GPI,” they are
in fact, used to configure the GPOs.

The GPO_CL1 and GPO_CL2 connections are normally open with


respect to each other and there is a relay connected between them.
When any of the enabled GPI triggers are activated, the relay is closed,
and this closes the connection between the GPO pins. The relay has a
capacity of 0.5 amps.
You can use any or all of these parameters to program the activation of
alarms for the ACO-3901.

notes.

56 ACO-3901 Installation and Operation Manual


Chapter 3: Operation

Alarms
The ACO-3901 has two types of alarms: traditional CCS-enabled
alarms, and additional user-configurable hardware alarms.

CCS-Enabled Alarms
ACO-3901 modules provide a default list of 70 CCS-enabled alarms.
You can disable these alarms by modifying the Alarms parameter in the
Setup section.
When you select Alarms, the active alarms are visible in the display,
below Config (Configurations). If no alarms are active, only Config
appears.

Alarm Synchronization
Alarm synchronization is available for this module if your NEO frame
contains a 3901RES-E resource module that supports the feature. When
active, alarm synchronization ensures that the alarm configuration
settings of card-edge controls and the CCS control software and control
panels are consistent.
If the ACO-3901 module is set for local control, the alarm settings will
appear the same at both the card edge and via CCS, but the settings can
only be changed using the card-edge controls. If the module is set for
remote control, the alarm settings can be changed via both the card edge
and CCS control software and control panels.
Alarm configuration settings undergo DejaView (state recovery)
automatically. This means that when a module is hot-swapped, the
alarm configuration for the new module is updated to the settings of the
module that was previously in that slot. See “State Recovery Parameter
Availability” in this chapter for more information.

Identifying the Cause of an Alarm


To identify the reason for an alarm, select the active alarm, and then
press Enter. A scrolling message appears on the VFD describing the
cause of the fault.

Enabling or Disabling a CCS Alarm Parameter


To enable or disable an alarm parameter, follow these steps:
1. Select Alarms, then select Config, and then press Enter.
2. Select one of the alarm parameters, and then press Enter.
3. Press Enabled or Disabled.
4. Press Enter to activate the selection.

Restoring Default Settings


To restore the alarms to their default settings, follow these steps:
1. Select Alarms, select Config, and then press Enter.
2. Scroll down the list of alarms, and then select Reset.
3. Press Enter to activate the selection.
The following table lists the default alarms for the ACO-3901 module.
You can enable or disable these settings, but you cannot change the
level of the alarm.

Hardware Alarms
The ACO-3901 has additional hardware alarms that operate
independently of the CCS-enabled alarms. Unlike CCS alarms, you can
change the Major or Minor designation of the hardware alarms. These
alarms are represented by the Major or Minor LEDs located on the left
front corner of the ACO-3901 module.
The following parameters enable or disable the hardware alarms:
• AudPPSEn
• AudSPSEn
• AudMTG1En
• AudMTG2En
• AudExtEn
• AudOutEn
• AudCPUEn
• AudM1VBEn
• AudM2VBEn
• AudExtVBEn

• AlrmMTG1En
• AlrmMTG2En
• AlrmExtEn
• AlrmOutEn
• AlrmCPUEn
• AlrmM1VBEn

These alarms are located on pages 49 to 50 in the Operator and All List
Parameters table, and in the Processing>Monitoring section of the
Tree View on pages 79 to 80.

State Recovery Parameter Availability


The parameter settings for this module are automatically saved onto the
3901RES-E resource module installed in your NEO frame every five
minutes. If a module should fail and be replaced with a cold spare, the
state parameters can be automatically recovered. For more information
on this feature, see the NEO FR-3901, FR-3903, and FR-3923
Mounting Frames Installation and Operation Manual (Edition E and
above).

LED and Module Indicators


General Information
The ACO-3901 Automatic Changeover Unit has ten card-edge LEDs
and five module indicators.
The module indicators include a Major Alarm and a Minor Alarm.
These alarms alert users to failures or impending failures within the
module. They are found in the following locations:
• As red or yellow LEDs on the 3901AIC Alarm Interconnect
Module or the 3901RES-E Resource Module (visible via light pipes
through the frame’s front panel)
• As part of a list of activated alarms found in the ACO-3901 Setup
menu
• In external systems connected to the alarm contact closures at the
back of the NEO frames
• On a PC screen where Pilot or another GUI-based control
application is being used
The ACO-3901 also has a unique redundant alarm system, in which
Major and Minor Alarms are reported in the LEDs. For more details,
see page 65.
