In the following you can find the step-by-step guide for attaching the SatSite unit to a tower or mast.
+
== Connections ==
  
Some of these steps can be performed on the ground, but the final steps must be completed on the mast by a trained tower technician with appropriate equipment.

Each SatSite is provided with a pair of mounting brackets.
 +
These are different for 142 , 132 and high-temperature ("142T") versions.
  
=== Step 2===
 
  
Depending on your installation, it may be easier to place the grounding wire lug on the rod before screwing the rods into the case of the SatSite unit.
+
=== SatSite 142 ===
  
[[File:New step 3.png]]
+
Each mounting bracket has
 +
* a flat or U-shaped plate that attaches to the SatSite radiator
 +
* a set of 3 bridles for different sizes of poles
 +
* a set of bolts and nuts and washers for assembly
  
=== Optional ===

=== Step 3 ===
 
  
First, check that M6 holes on the unit are clean.
+
== Power supply ==
 +
The SatSite operates from -48 VDC.
 +
The input is diode-protected against reverse voltage.
  
Then screw threaded rods into holes on the unit, until it reaches the back of the hole.  
+
The unit is supplied with a 10-meter power cable and an extra connector so that you can make your own cable following the information below.
  
You need to grease with vaseline (the same used for automobiles) the nut holding the cable and also the other end of the cable, to avoid exposure to unfriendly weather conditions.
+
The unit is supplied with a 200W 48VDC supply that can be used to power it from mains power of 120-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz.

Place unit against mast pole and slide brackets onto rods.

== Ethernet ==
Allowed mast sizes are 35 mm - 85 mm.
+
  
'''Important:''' If you installed the optional radiator, the maximum mast size is 50 mm.  
+
Satsite142 got two Ethernet connectors for Network A and Network B
 +
* Network A has the fixed IP 10.0.3.1
 +
* Network B will have DHCP IP address
  
The SatSite unit should be mounted on the pole with the connectors pointing down.
+
Please note that we highly recommend keeping Network A cable connected to the SatSite 142 unit, as it can be used to recover the unit upon any DHCP problem.

'''Tower mounted radio equipment is at risk of being struck by lighting. Good lightning protection is critical for safe and reliable operation of the SatSite unit and a proper explanation of it is outside the scope of this document.'''
 
  
The SatSite unit has an internal lightning arrestor.
+
Attach and crimp the R5-45 connector onto the cable in the standard way.
For this internal arrestor to be effective, the SatSite unit case must be properly grounded.
+
[[File:Pic 2.png|thumb|center]]
 +
<br />
  
For a conductive metal mast, grounding is achieved in three steps:
 
# The grounding cable (the heavy green and yellow wire) must be firmly attached to the mast, with good electrical contact.
 
# The mast itself must be properly grounded. The requirements and techniques for grounding vary with local factors, like soil composition and construction regulations. Consult a local electrician for an effective grounding plan.
 
# The power supply system the feeds the mast must be properly grounded. Consult a local electrician for an effective grounding plan.
 
  
'''Note:''' The maximum allowed resistance between the SatSite unit to the ground is 4 ohms.
+
For this step, you need two 19 mm wrenches. Slide the shroud over the connector.
 +
[[File:Pic 3 updated.png|thumb|center]]
 +
<br />
  
== Power connections ==
+
The connector will slide completely into the shrowd, further than shown here. Then tighten the gland nut around the cable.
 +
When attaching the cable to the SatSite unit, align the connector first, then press it into place, then turn the
 +
shroud body to lock the connector. Also check the gland nut is tight and forms a good seal.

# white - neutral ("N")
+
# black - "hot" or "live" ("L")
+
  
The power supply is delivered already assembled.

+
(Note the SatSite Model 121 unit is negative grounded and the negative side of the +48VDC supply is tied to the unit case internally.)

Mounting the SatSite on the tower

Note: Tower work is dangerous. Do not attempt to climb a tower without proper equipment and training.

Each SatSite is provided with a pair of mounting brackets. These are different for 142 , 132 and high-temperature ("142T") versions.


SatSite 142

Each mounting bracket has

  • a flat or U-shaped plate that attaches to the SatSite radiator
  • a set of 3 bridles for different sizes of poles
  • a set of bolts and nuts and washers for assembly

Please refer to the image Mounting Brackets SatSite 142 for details.

SatSite 142T (high-temperature)

Please refer to the image Mounting Brackets SatSite 142T for details.

Note the extra nylon spacers between the flat plate and the radiator.

SatSite 132

Please refer to the guide Mounting SatSite 123


Power supply

The SatSite operates from -48 VDC. The input is diode-protected against reverse voltage.

The unit is supplied with a 10-meter power cable and an extra connector so that you can make your own cable following the information below.

The unit is supplied with a 200W 48VDC supply that can be used to power it from mains power of 120-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz.

  • positive (supply ground, "V+") = brown cable
  • negative (-48 VDC, "V-") = black and grey cables
  • safety ground (G) = green + yellow cable

Mains/Grid

  • mains neutral = blue
  • mains 120-240 VAC 50-60 Hz ("hot" or "live") = brown







Grounding

The installation kit includes a grounding strap that should be attached from the radiator to a sufficient ground point.

Note: The design of grounding systems is site-specific. Please consult a local electrician for a proper grounding system for your site.

Ethernet

Satsite142 got two Ethernet connectors for Network A and Network B

  • Network A has the fixed IP 10.0.3.1
  • Network B will have DHCP IP address

Please note that we highly recommend keeping Network A cable connected to the SatSite 142 unit, as it can be used to recover the unit upon any DHCP problem.


Thread the shroud onto the ethernet cable.

The connector will slide completely into the shrowd, further than shown here. Then tighten the gland nut around the cable. When attaching the cable to the SatSite unit, align the connector first, then press it into place, then turn the shroud body to lock the connector. Also check the gland nut is tight and forms a good seal.






RF cable and antenna

Caution.png


Please pay attention: When the SatSite unit is powered, the output can be as high as 10 watts. This is strong power if you come into direct contact with the central conductor in the connector or on the cable. Use caution and avoid working with actively powered radio equipment. RF cable needs to be connected with caution while rotating it. Its recommended to use spanner 14 mm while connecting the cable

Getting started

In order to get started with Satsite 142 , you can either use the static IP or dynamic IP.

1. Using static IP Connect Network A ethernet to PC , and assign the PC static IP address in the network 10.0.3.x /8 Then you can access it via ssh

  • ssh yatebts@10.0.3.1 -p 54321
  • then telnet 0 5037

or via the web interface http://10.0.3.1:2080/lmi The username is yatebts and the password is the serial number

2. Using dynamic IP Connect Network B to your local network and make sure it get DHCP IP address Then you can access it via ssh

  • ssh yatebts@<DHCP_IP_ADDRESS> -p 54321
  • then telnet 0 5037

or via the web interface http://<DHCP_IP_ADDRESS>:2080/lmi The username is yatebts and the password is the serial number
