Safety Precautions & Declared Material


General Equipment Precautions

Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those


! specified herein, may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

Machine noise information order - 3. GPSGV, the highest sound pressure


! level amounts to 70 dB (A) or less, in accordance with ISO EN 7779.
Static electricity may cause body harm, as well as harm to electronic
components inside the device.
Anyone responsible for the installation or maintenance of the IP-10C must use
an ESD Wrist Strap.
ESD protection measures must be observed when touching the RFU.
To prevent damage, before touching components inside the device, all
electrostatic must be discharged from both personnel and tools.

! In Norway and Sweden:


Equipment connected to the protective earthing of the building installation
through the mains connection or through other equipment with a connection
to protective earthing – and to a cable distribution system using coaxial cable,
may in some circumstances create a fire hazard. Connection to a cable
distribution system has therefore to be provided through a device providing
electrical isolation below a certain frequency range (galvanic isolator, see EN
60728-11).
Utstyr som er koplet til beskyttelsesjord via nettplugg og/eller via annet
jordtilkoplet utstyr – og er tilkoplet et kabel-TV nett, kan forårsake brannfare.
For å unngå dette skal det ved tilkopling av utstyret til kabel-TV nettet
installeres en galvanisk isolator mellom utstyret og kabel- TV nettet.”
Translation to Swedish: ”Utrustning som är kopplad till skyddsjord via jordat
vägguttag och/eller via annan utrustning och samtidigt är kopplad till kabel-
TV nät kan i vissa fall medfőra risk főr brand. Főr att undvika detta skall vid
anslutning av utrustningen till kabel-TV nät galvanisk isolator finnas mellan
utrustningen och kabel-TV nätet.

FibeAir® IP-10C Installation Guide

2.7 Antenna Connection


IP-10C uses Andrew, General Dynamics, RFS, Shenglu and Xian Putian
antennas.
IP-10C can be mounted directly for all frequencies (6-42 GHz) using the
following antenna types (for integrated antennas, specific antennas PNs are
required):
 Andrew: VHLP series
 RFS: SB/SU series
 Shenglu: SLC series
 Xian Putian: WTC/WTG series
 General Dynamics: HPS series
For remote mount installations, the following flexible waveguide flanges
should be used (millimetric). The same antenna type (integrated) as indicated
above can be used (recommended).
Other antenna types using the flanges listed in the table below may be used.

Frequency Circ. WG Rect. WG Flange Des. Radio Side (Remote) Flex WG Side A Flex WG Side B Antenna (Remote)
Diameter Flange Des. Flange Des. Flange Des. Flange Des.

If a different antenna type (CPR flange) is used, a flange adaptor is required.


Please contact your Ceragon representative for details.
Note: Conductive grease must be applied to the screws that
connect the IP-10C to the antenna interface.

FibeAir® IP-10C Installation Guide

2.8 Adjusting for Horizontal and Vertical Polarization


Polarization changes in the IP-10C are made by adjusting the iris on the
antenna port.

Attach the iris using two M3 screws, according to the antenna polarization:

For horizontal polarization, locate the holes above and below the letter
“H” on the pins and fasten the two screws.

Ceragon Proprietary and Confidential Page 16 of 63


FibeAir® IP-10C Installation Guide

For vertical polarization, locate the holes above and below the letter
“V” on the pins and fasten the two screws.

Note: For 6 GHz, separate irises are used for vertical and
horizontal polarization. The vertical iris comes assembled
with the IP-10C. The horizontal iris (MA-1840-X,
IP-10C Twist 6Ghz Horizontal) is included in the IP-10C
package.

2.9 Connecting Flexible Waveguides to the IP-10C


For an IP-10C operating in bands of 6-13 GHz, a remote mount adaptor must
be used to connect a flexible waveguide.
For an IP-10C operating in bands of 15-42 GHz, you must remove the iris
before connecting a flexible waveguide to the antenna port.
The following table provides the marketing models for the remote mount
waveguide adaptor kits required, per frequency.

FibeAir® IP-10C Installation Guide

2.9.1 Connecting the Waveguide in 6-13 GHz Bands

1 Mount the remote adaptor and O-Ring to the pole mount using the four M5
flat screws supplied in the Remote Mount Adaptor kit, and tighten the
screws.
2 Connect the flexible waveguide to the remote mount adaptor. Use screws
(supplied with the waveguide kit) to fasten the waveguide.

2.9.2 Connecting the Waveguide in 15-42 GHz Bands


1 Remove the iris from the IP-10C (no adaptor is required for the 15-42 GHz
bands).

2 Connect the waveguide to the antenna adaptor interface (the interface


exposed by removing the iris). Use four screws (supplied with the
waveguide kit) to fasten the waveguide end to the antenna adapter
interface.

Note: It is normal for the flexible waveguide to reach the IP-10C at


an angle of approximately 45°, as shown in the figure below.

IP-10C Grounding Cable

 The unit’s earthing screw terminal shall be permanently connected to


protective earth in a building installation in accordance with applicable
national code and regulations by a service person.
 A 2-Pole circuit breaker, a branch circuit protector, suitably certified in
accordance with applicable national code and regulations, rated maximum
20A, shall be installed for full power disconnection in a building
installation.
 Any outdoor antenna cable shield shall be permanently connected to
protective earth in a building installation.
When selecting a power source, the following must be considered:
 DC power can be from -40 VDC to -60 VDC.
 Recommended: Availability of a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Source),
battery backup, and emergency power generator.
 Whether or not the power source provides constant power (i.e., power is
secured on weekends or is shut off frequently and consistently).
 The power supply must have grounding points on the AC and DC sides.

! Caution!
The user power supply GND must be connected to the positive pole in the IP-10C
power supply. Any other connection may cause damage to the system!
