Re: Optical big iron
That's just sick
Niiiiiiiice! I'd love to see more pics of this stuff fibered up if it's possible.
Silly question, as I've never even seen one of these rigs, let alone used them...
What are this big bastard cables going from the controller cards? (The big silver metal sheath ones)
They must weigh a ton on the connectors themselves?
They are the DC power cables, actually plugged in to the DC input filters. Those cards and the node controllers are half a slot in height, same as the wave tracker card.
Bit of weight to them from all the copper, but not really that heavy at all.
Should be able to get a pic next week of it fibred up, and of one of the muxponders.
