Around-the-Clock Monitoring and Protection of Cellular and Trunking Site Transmitters
Compatible with analog or digital cellular and trunked radios Monitor VSWR and power Alarms with high VSWR or low power Remote capability enables multiple sites to be monitored from a single location Pays for itself by eliminating unnecessary travel and labor for site servicing May mount at output of transmit combiner or linear power amplifier Transparent to the system — Low insertion characteristics and intermod products less than -130dBc True average power reading with intelligent VSWR trend analysis eliminates false alarms

Alarm Action
Bird’s new 7005A-Series VSWR Monitor/Alarm provides an intelligent, reliable, continuous check of wireless site performance and abnormal VSWR which can indicate antenna or cable problems. Control channel transmit failure may also be flagged by the units low power alarm feature. By servicing only those sites showing degraded performance, operators can maximize the efficiency of their maintenance staffs while recouping the cost of one or more Model 7005A’s in saved travel and labor. The 7005A Series is designed for long-term VSWR monitoring and power measurement in analog or digital cellular or trunking radio systems. The 7005A Series can be used at any point in the transmission system, including the main antenna feed line, after the combiner or linear power amplifier. A high-directivity coupler and microprocessor control provide state-of-the-art accuracy and versatility. Instantaneous VSWR values and trends are calculated from forward and reflected power measurements, and compared to an internal VSWR threshold of 1.3:1 to 1.8:1, settable in increments of 0.1 VSWR. Bona fide load problems can be reliably and quickly identified while false alarms are eliminated. A built-in RS-232 compatible interface enables the 7005A Series to be connected to a host computer for remote readout of forward and reflected power, and control of alarm functions. When the line VSWR exceeds the threshold, the Model 7005A will initiate one of the following actions based upon the degree of mismatch: • VSWR less than the set point: no alarms are activated. • VSWR equals or slightly exceeds the set point: additional measurements are accumulated to determine a trend. If reflected power increases during this time, an alarm condition is generated. If reflected power is stable, an alarm is generated if VSWR exceeds the threshold for more than one minute. • VSWR greatly exceeds the set point: an alarm is generated immediately. The 7005A low power alarm may be toggled on or off. While activated, an alarm is generated if the monitored transmitter(s) fail to provide forward power. Alarm conditions are indicated by a red LED on the monitor, and the activation of a form C relay. Normally open, common, and normally closed relay contacts are available at the Alarm/Power connector. The relay is a “fail safe” type which automatically enters the alarm state if supply power is lost.

Reset Operation
Alarms may be reset through any of three actions: • A Local Reset button located on the monitor. • A TTL-compatible Remote Reset pin located on the Alarm/Power connector. This method will reset the unit up to three times before a local reset is required. • Remote Reset through the RS-232 interface. Up to three remote resets are possible before a local Electronic Corporation A Member of Bird Technologies Group reset is necessary.
