Site Requirements
Prior to the commencement of the installation, the site must have been prepared as
follows:
The site specific-base construction must have been mounted.
A concrete base of sufficiently large to accommodate shelter size and weight is
needed for rural sites.
The distance between the enclosure sides and vertical faces i.e. walls etc. should
be restricted to 500 mm minimum.This avoid the risk of air flow restrictions into the
cooling system. Adequate clearence should be provisioned in front of the enclosure
in order that the shelter door may fully opened. Adequate clearence should be provisioned above the BS21 in order that the roof may be suffciently opened for service,
maintenance or replacement purposes.
The installation area should be clear of standing water, fallen leaves, mud and
building debris. Check the location for possibility of flood disasters and exessive fall
of snow.
Measurements should be taken against unauthorized access.
The lightning and grounding systems must be complete.
All installation works of 230 V/120 VAC(BS21E/BS21U) power supply ,including a
ground fault indicator (GFI/FI) in each phase, must be finished.
The BS 21 shelter should be mounted, after all other work to create the required infrastructure (antennas/antenna cabling,PCM lines...) is complete.
Note, that the installation of the BS 21U is not allowed without plinth and cable entry
cover!

Environmental Conditions
The location of a site may directly effect the correct operation of the base station.
In terms of exessive salt contamition situations it is recommended not to place the BS21
close to coastal areas in order to avoid necessarily of shorter maintenance intervals. It
is recommended to keep a distance of about > 1000 m to coast. Enclosures on coastal
sites should not be installed with the right hand side air intakes facing directly into prevailing sea winds or spray.
Installation under trees and foliage is not recommended due to increased levels of
insects etc. which may be drawn into the cooling system by the fans.
In areas of much fall of snow the base station should be placed at an socket or at the
mast with an appropriate height, so that the air intake (lower grille) will not be blocket by
snow.
In potential areas subject to flooding the base station should not be placed on ground,
because the base station is not protected against water ingress on bottom.
Sites located close to exessive airborne dust clouds i.e. cement, coal deposits etc.
should also be minimised in order to avoid contamination of the cooling system and
increased maintenance.
The max. open air temperature must not exeed 45C/117F.

Security Features and Door Opening Procedures


All exterior fixings for the BS21 are hex headed pin-torque bolts. Removal of these
requires an appropriate hex pin-torque driver. Cabinet roof fixings are all accessed from
inside the enclosure. The left-hand roof hinge is reversed to prevent illicit removal of the
roof assembly.
Each of the cabinet doors utilises a 3 point bar locking system, which secures the doors
in the top, center and bottom position. The locking of the door is achieved via an EMKA
Euro Cylinder. 3 off EMKA Euro Cylinder keys are supplied suitably bagged-up and
tapped within the cabinet.
Further an EMKA angled 8 mm drive key for operation of the 3 point bar locking system
is supplied suitably bagged-up and tapped within the cabinet.
A door locking alarm system is fitted to both doors and will trigger a remote alarm should
the doors be opened in any manner other than that for which they were designed. The
alarm system gives warning of doors in closed or open position.
The locking mechanism of the cabinet has a factory fitted posi-head self-tapping security
screw in place, which ensures that the cabinet cannot be inadvertently locked with the
cylinder keys inside, either during factory build, transportation or installation.
The opening of the doors is as follows:

Insert the 8 mm square drive key and the Euro Cylinder key.
Turn Cylinder key 1/2 turn clockwise to the spring position (resistance against the
key)
Holding the Cylinder key on the spring, turn the 8mm square drive key 1/4 turn clockwise - this operates the 3 point bar locking system.
Release the Euro Cylinder key.

The closing of the doors is as follows:


Turn the 8mm square drive key 1/4 turn anti-clockwise (this moves the 3 point bar
locking system to the locked position).
Ensure that the locking bar has correctly engaged behind the top and bottom
keepers.
Turn the Euro Cylinder key 1/2 turn anti-clockwise and remove.

on the site construction (e.g. steel frame for roof-top installation, concrete foundation for
rural sites), the shelter has to be connected directly to the ground system or via a short
ground jumper. If 16 mm copper wire (e.g. PVC-wire H07V-R 16 yellow/green) should
be used, the distance must be less than 2 metres.
Connect the BS 21U shelter and ground system as follows:
Use the nearest connection points of the ground system.
Ascertain the distances between the connection point of the ground system and the

Remove the cable covering at the end to connect to the ground bolt (length approx.
10 mm) and fix a cable lug M8.
Connect the prepared cable end to the ground bolt and tighten the nut firmly.
Connect the grounding strip (cable entry) with the external earth bolt by earth cable.
Detailed information about the ground system on site and the connecting procedure is
to be found in the site-specific documentation.
A backup batterie could be mounted inside the front door for taking over the -48 V DC
supply function either in case of primary power loss or in case of AC/DC converter
failure. The required connecting cables are already installed at the factory. For extension of the backup time, additional batteries outside the BS 21U could be used.
This requires the disconnection of the internal battery. For this purpose a jumper in the
fuse panel must be used. The external battery is protected by a 50 A breaker, located in
the fuse panel. The external back-up battery requires a copper cable connection
between the WAGO-terminal block on the EMI-panel and the battery via the cable entry.
The max. electrical load of the DC power line is </= 48V/50A.
The cable to the battery compartment must be installed in a grounded metal raceway. If
this solution is not possible, other measures have to be taken to avoid the inducing of
overvoltage in the battery cable.
The connection is made as follows:
Determine the actual cable length between the location of these batteries and the
terminal block at the EMI-panel.
Cut the cable (e.g. NYCWY 2x10/RE 10) to the required length.
Connect the prepaired cable to the terminal block.
Lead the cable through the cable entry forward to the external batteries.

Requirements for External Battery


If the external battery has the same characteistic as the internal one (e.g. Sonnenschein
A400 series),and the temperature difference inside the BS21 and inside the battery
compartment is very similar (rec. from the supplier </= 3 K), the AC/DC converters of the
BS21 can charge and supervise the external batteries.
If other types of batteries will be used or the temperature between shelter and battery
compartment is very different, the battery have to disconnected. Charging and supervis-

ing of the batteries must be done inside the battery compartment. Note: The +0 V pole
of the external batteries must be connected to ground !

2.8.4

Abis-Interface - PCM Link Terminal


The Abis interface, located on RCAP, is terminated with the Overvoltage Protection
(OVPT) which protects the LI inside the BS20 against overvoltage (residual voltage < 1
kV). Two types of OVPT are exist (for 75 Ohm or 120 Ohm cables).
Dependend on the different cable impedances is recommended to:
Use screened cable containing 8/10 shielded twisted pairs 0,25 mm2 for 120 Ohm
PCM lines, e.g. S-09YS(ST)CY 8x2x0.6/1.2.
Use coaxial cables for 75 Ohm wiring, e.g. 2YCCY 0.4/2.5.
The maximum cable length depends on the attenuation of the cable, in order to fulfil the
requirements of minimum voltage levels to be provided at Abis interface according to
PCM standards. The cable shielding must be connected to the relevant ground pins as
close as possible (in order to avoid EMC/RF interfering effects).

2.8.4.1

WARNING
The AC connection of the BTS has to be disconnected before working at the PCMterminal blocks. This can be done either by pulling out the AC plug or by releasing the
mains breakers outside of the BTS.Releasing the internal AC breakers is not sufficient!

Connect the Abis-interface with twisted pair cable to the PCM link terminal as follows:
Cut the cable to the required length and cut back the outer insulation (approx.19
cm). Remove the wire insulation (0,8 mm).
Wrap the exposed cable shield, whitch will be fixed at the stress relieving, with
adhesive copper foil (approx. 4 cm).
Fix the prepared cable close to the stress relieving by straps.
Insert the wires into the terminals of the OVPT.

Insert the additional wire (shielding potential) into one of the ground terminals (e.g.
no. 24).
Lead the additional wire and the uplink and downlink wires on the shortest way (that
means without sleeves) between the stress relieving and the screw terminals.
All unconnected PCM lines (4 wires per line) must be connected to one of the
ground terminals.

It is advantageous to protect the short part of the cable between stress relieving and

System Cabling
The system cabling consists of connections which must be installed between the front
connectors of the RF modules. It depends on the different equipping variants and the
cell configuration of the site. The prefabricated semi-rigid cables are shipped separately
in their own carton to avoid twisting and damage.
Before starting the installation procedure, refer to the site documentation and determine
types and numbers of cables required for the complete cabling.
The following section gives an overview of the required cable connections.

For instellation and service purposes it is useful to know, which hardware is connected
to which cell. The numbering, seen from the top of the antenne pole, starts at an azimuth
angle of 0 (north) and rotates clockwise. The first existing cell which beam center line
lies at 0 or more degree is defined as cell 0 or sector 0. The next one following in the
same direction cell is cell 1 etc. In case of omni cell the cell no. is 0.

Mounting of the Cabel Entry Cover


After all external cabling works are finished and all cables fixed by the clamps of the
cable entry, proceed in steps as follows:

Check the correct fixing of all connectors at the EMI-panel.


Bend the external cables inside the EMI-panel to the correct form. Pay attention to
the minimum bending radius of each cable type.
Make sure that all sealings are in the correct position.
Close the top cover of the shelter and fix it by the fastening screws, located in the
upper area of the door frame.
Fix all cables leaving the shelter at the holders of the cable entry cover.
Use adhesive sealing tape for closing the gap between shelter and cable entry
cover.
Set up the cover and tighten the 6 M6 Allen screws.

The following figure will give orientation for the handling of the cable entry cover.

equipment on site:

approx. 150 mm between back and wall for opening the top cover
approx. 500 mm between sidewall and cabel entry cover or wall for securing the
function of the air inlets and air outlets. Further the space reservation is needed for
removing the cable entry cover.
min. 870 mm for complete opening of the front doors

In case the racks are installed without base constructions, a min. distance between floor
and ceiling or other lowest construction part of 1600 mm is absolute required (for
opening the top cover).

Connections between the Racks


1/2 jumper leads are required for connecting the racks, equipped with N-type female
connectors at both ends. The laying of these cables requires a metal cable duct or
metallic tubes between the shelters, which must be connected to ground for lightning
protection.
The rack extension consists of the jumper connections as shown in the figure and the
rack-internal system cabling. Further a HYBRID module has to be installed in each
BS21. The slots of RXAMCO 2 and 3 are the mounting position for the HYBRID.
