3 Installing optional items

3.1 Installing a System Extension Module (ESEA)


Purpose

A System Extension Module (ESEA) is used in the following


configurations:

. 13-24 TRX configurations with the Dual Duplexer Module (ERxA)


.
All configurations with the Remote Tune Combiner Module (ECxA)

The Dual Duplexer Module provides antenna connections in


configurations where it is used. The Remote Tune Combiner Module
provides antenna connections in configurations where it is used.

The System Extension Module can also be used in configurations with less
than 12 TRXs per BCF. This enables easier future expansion to more than
12 TRXs. The same rules apply to configurations with less than 12 TRXs
per BCF as to those with more than 12 TRXs.

Before you start

Take expansion into account when building the initial configuration. For
example, a 4+4+4 configuration with the Dual Duplexer Module and
System Extension Module should be built like an 8+8+8 configuration with
the Dual Duplexer Module by leaving empty spaces in the cabinet for
future Dual TRX Modules (EXxA).

The recommended installation location in Flexi Cabinet for Indoor (FCIA) is


in the lower part of the rack in between the lowest and middle logical
sectors.

DN70470757 # Nokia Siemens Networks 9 (143)


Issue 2-0 en
10/06/2008
Installing Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS Optional Items

The recommended installation location in Flexi Cabinet for Outdoor


(FCOA) is in the lower vertical (left) rack with a 2U gap between the
System Extension Module and the left cabinet wall. The exception to this
rule is if optional power modules are already used in the lower vertical rack
space. In this case, the same rules as for the FCIA apply.

Different bus and internal power cabling rules apply depending on whether
the Remote Tune Combiner or Dual Duplexer Module is used. For details,
see Bus and internal power cabling principles for System Extension
Module (ESEA) in Creating FCIA Configurations.

Nokia Siemens Networks recommends that the System Module (ESMA)


and System Extension Module (ESEA) have separate fused DC input lines
from the external power source for safety reasons. The rubber boots
provided in the System Module and System Extension Module deliveries
are only allowed to be used with single DC cables. Fault investigation is
also easier with separate DC lines.

If separate fused DC lines are not available for the System Module and
System Extension Module, the DC lines can be chained. If chaining is
used, one double rubber boot (822862) per chained power terminal is
required for safety and must be ordered as a spare part. For an example of
DC chaining, see Installing Flexi Power DC/DC Module 24V (FPDA).

Two extension bus cables 994939 are provided in the System Extension
Module delivery. Use one to connect the top (or farthest) Dual TRX Module
to the System Extension Module. The other cable can be kept as a spare
part or for any of the following uses if needed:

. for connecting the System Extension Module to the System Module,


.
for connecting another Dual TRX Module to the System Extension
Module if required by 3rd party cabinet installations or
.
if there are any special cable routing requirements.

Steps

1. If this is an FCOA vertical rack installation, remove the cable tie


plate from the vertical rack.

2. If this is an FCIA or FCOA horizontal rack installation, fix the


guide plates.

3. Fix the cage nuts.

4. Slide the module in.

5. Fix the module with the 4 pre-installed M5 screws.

For the correct torque value and bolt size, see Torque values in
Creating FCIA Configurations.

6. If this is an FCOA vertical (left) rack installation, fix the cable tie
plate in the empty 2U space next to the System Extension
Module.

3.2 Installing Flexi Power Module (FPMA)

3.2.1 Installing Flexi Power Module (FPMA)

Purpose

Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS uses 48 VDC power. In a BTS site with AC feed
only, a Flexi Power Module (FPMA) is required for converting the AC to DC
before feeding the DC power to the System Module.

Flexi Power Module (FPMA) consists of mechanics, AC terminal and four


slots for AC/DC sub-module (FPAA) or battery sub-module (FPBA).

The following FPMA and FPAA/FPBA combinations are allowed:

.
Up to two FPMAs can be connected to one System Module or
System Extension Module.
. If two FPMAs are connected to the same System Module or System
Extension Module, double rubber boots (822862) are required for
safety. They must be ordered as a spare part.
.
Any combination of up to four FPAAs and FPBAs can be installed in
one FPMA, as long as the total number of FPAAs or FPBAs for the
BTS meets the requirements for the configuration.
. To find the number of FPAAs required for a configuration, see
Common stack, wall and pole configurations in Creating Stack, Wall
and Pole Configurations. See also Creating FCIA Configurations
and Creating FCOA Configurations.
. For guidance on determining the number of FPBAs required for a
configuration, see Optional Items Description.

The FPMA must be located close enough to the System Module so that
the alarm cable and DC power cables reach the appropriate connectors.
This also applies to the System Extension Module (DC power cables only).

Installing Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS Optional Items

By default, the DC output voltage of the FPMA is floating nominal 48 VDC,


however, it can also be positive grounded. This can be implemented by
using a branch connector in an additional connection box (see the
following principle figure). In this solution, the + wire between the FPMA
and System Module is cut, and grounding to the BTS site ground bar is
done with an additional grounding cable (the cross-section of which must
be the same as that of the + wire).

Note

Risk of damage to equipment. When two Flexi Power DC/DC Modules


(FPDA) are used in parallel, do not chain the cables at the System
Module (ESMA) because the FPDA dual rubber boots are designed for
use with the FPDA only. Chain the cables at the FPDA closest to the
System Module.

If two FPDAs are used in parallel, two additional 4 AWG (25 mm2) cable
lugs are required. These lugs must be sourced locally and are not included
in the delivery.

In FCIA and FCOA installation, the FPDA is installed directly to the rack
without cable entries and plinth.

3.6 Installing Flexi System External Alarm (FSEB)


Purpose

The optional Flexi System External Alarm Module (FSEB) is used when
up to 24 external alarm inputs and 6 control outputs need to be supported
with Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS. The module also supports Flexi Cabinet Fire
Detector (FCDA).

The FSEB can be installed in the following ways:

. On a wall (vertical or horizontal position)


. On a module casing in pole, wall, or stack installations using Flexi
Mounting Auxiliary Brackets (FMAA). For FMAA installation
instructions, see Installing Flexi Mounting Auxiliary Brackets
(FMAA).
. On the FCIA or FCOA roof (horizontal position only)
.
In Citytalk cabinets, the FSEB can be installed on top of the stack
(depending on working space) or outside of the cabinet. The box
cannot be installed on the roof.

If there is not enough space left for the FSEB or other auxiliary boxes on
the FCIA, FCOA, or the FMAA, the additional auxiliary box(es) must be
installed on a wall or pole close to the BTS. In stack, wall or pole
installations, additional FMAA brackets can also be installed if there are
multiple plinths. Note that the distance from each box to the BTS is limited
by the lengths of the cables coming from the auxiliary box.

3.7 Installing Flexi System External OVP (FSEC)


Purpose

The Flexi System External OVP (FSEC) assembly protects the Flexi
EDGE BTS modules against surge pulses in power feeding lines.

The FSEC is typically used when Flexi EDGE BTS is installed at the top of
a mast and the site support system is located at the bottom of the mast. In
this case, the OVP for the site support system will not protect the Flexi
EDGE BTS, therefore an FSEC module must be installed on or next to the
BTS.

Note that with Flexi EDGE BTS, the FSEC is not required for feederless
configurations, because the Optical Converter Module (EOCA) has
integrated OVP functionality.

The FSEC is also used for providing an IP55-protected DC distribution box


and for altering the DC cable diameter.

Examples of other uses are:

. Distribute DC power from an external source to the air filter (FCFA)


when there are no power ports available on the System Module.
.
Distribute DC power from an external source to the Site Support
Module (FCSA) when the FCSA is installed without a Power
Distribution Unit (WPUB or WPUC).

The table below shows the DC power cable requirements for the FSEC.
The DC cables are not included in the FSEC delivery.

In mast installations, DC feeder cable with a protective jacket and
grounding kit is required between the site support system and the FSEC at
the top of the mast. The same DC feeder cable requirements for
feederless configurations apply to feeder configurations with FSEC. For
details about selecting and preparing the feeder cable, see Creating Nokia
Flexi EDGE BTS Feederless Site Configurations.

In stack, wall and pole installation, Flexi Mounting Auxiliary Brackets


(FMAA) is used with FSEC installation. For instructions, see Installing Flexi
Mounting Auxiliary Brackets (FMAA). If using Flexi Mounting Auxiliary
Brackets (FMAA), see the following figures for the installation position of

5. Push the cable connector seal firmly in place.

6. Route and connect the other end of the Q1 cable to the Q1


network management system.

4.6 Connecting LMP cable


Purpose

The local management port (LMP) cable (ELCA) is an optional 50 m cable


that can be left in the LMP port for mast installations. This allows local
access to the BTS without having to climb the mast or remove the front
cover. The cable is connected between the LMP port on the System
Module (ESMA) and a laptop or other computer. The laptop end has an
extra connector seal to provide weather protection when the laptop end is
left uninstalled at the site. The ends of the cable are labeled 'LMP' and
'Laptop'.

Summary

Caution

Incorrect cables and seals may not provide secured environmental


protection. Use only tested IP55 class cables with seals provided by
Nokia Siemens Networks.

Store all unused seals for later use.

Caution

Risk of damage to equipment. Connector seals or boots must be


installed at all times, whether the site is active or not.

Optional power modules

Appendix B Optional power modules

B.1 Optional power modules (FPDA and FPMA) in Flexi EDGE BTS
configurations

The following table shows the number of power modules needed in Flexi
EDGE BTS configurations if AC or 24 VDC power supply options are used.
The power modules are:

. Flexi Power DC/DC Module 24 V (FPDA) and


.
Flexi Power Module (FPMA) with AC/DC 230 V Sub-modules
(FPAA)

Table 13. Number of power modules needed

Configuration Number of FPDAs Number of FPMAs


1+1+1/2+2+2 2UD bypass 1 1 FPMA with 2 FPAAs
1)
3+3+3/4+4+4 2UD 2-way 2 1 FPMA with 4 FPAAs

1)
For a cost-optimised 3+3 configuration, only one FPDA is needed.

The recommended optional power module locations are as follows:

. In all installation options, the location of the FPMA or FPDA in


relation to the System Module and System Extension Module is
limited by the alarm and DC cable lengths.
. In Flexi Cabinet for Indoor (FCIA), the recommended location of the
FPMA and FPDA is at the top of the cabinet.
. In Flexi Cabinet for Outdoor (FCOA), the recommended location of
the FPMA and FPDA is in the vertical racks.
. If the System Module is in the vertical rack, install the power
module on the vertical rack at the bottom.
. If the System Module is in the horizontal rack, install the power
module(s) on the vertical rack on top.

DN70470757 # Nokia Siemens Networks 127 (143)


Issue 2-0 en
10/06/2008
Installing Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS Optional Items

. In stack installations:
. The recommended location of the FPDA is on top of the stack.
This is for possible future expansion - the new FPDA can be
installed directly on top of the existing one.
. The recommended location of the FPMA is at the bottom of the
stack. This allows for easier expansion of the top sector
module. That sector can be expanded without the Upgrade RF
Cable Kit EUCA.
. In pole and wall installations, the recommended location of the
FPDA and FPMA is either on the same plinth as the ESMA or on an
adjacent plinth.

The FPMA must be located close enough to the System Module so that
the alarm cable and DC power cables reach the appropriate connectors.
This also applies to the System Extension Module (DC power cables only).

The FPDA(s) must be located close enough to the System Module so that
the alarm cable reaches the appropriate connectors.

The following figures show the installation location of the power modules
for the 1+1+1/2+2+2 and 3+3+3/4+4+4 configurations, for each installation
type.

Appendix C FRMA, FRMB and FRMC in Flexi EDGE BTS configurations

C.1 Principles for installing FRMA, FRMB and FRMC in Flexi EDGE BTS
configurations

The following locations for installing the Flexi Rectifier Module (FRMA,
FRMB and FRMC) in Flexi EDGE BTS configurations are recommended
for ease of future expansion. The FRMx can be installed anywhere in a
stack or cabinet provided that the 2 m (6.6 in.) alarm cable can be
connected between the FRMx and System Module (System Module).

For more information on FRMA, FRMB and FRMC, see the installation
instructions in NOLS.

FCIA installations

In indoor installations, the FRMA or FRMC module is used.


. For installations in Flexi Cabinet for Indoor (FCIA) without batteries,
the recommended location is at the top of the cabinet, near the
cabinet roof. This helps reduce the amount of cabling routed along
the sides of the cabinet.
.
For FCIA installations with batteries, the recommended location is
near the bottom of the cabinet, in the next available rack space
above the batteries.

FCOA installations

For installations in Flexi Cabinet for Outdoor (FCOA) without batteries:

. If batteries are not used, only the FRMB or FRMC can be used in
FCOA.
.
If the System Module (ESMA) is in the top vertical rack, install the
FRMB/FRMC module on the lower vertical rack, ensuring all cable
entries come from the bottom of the module.
. If the System Module is in the horizontal rack, install the module in
the top vertical rack.
. If the System Module and System Extension Module (ESEA) are
installed in both vertical racks, install the module in either the top or
bottom of the horizontal rack, depending on whether the top or
bottom cable entry is used for the external power feed.

FRMA, FRMB and FRMC in Flexi EDGE BTS configurations

For FCOA installations with batteries, the Site Support Module (FCSA) is
installed inside the FCOA cabinet. The FRMA is installed inside the FCSA
with the batteries underneath it. For details, see Installing FCOA.

Stack installations

. In outdoor stack installations, only the FRMC module can be used


because of WDR requirements. Flexi front and back covers must be
used.
.
For indoor stack installations, either the FRMA, FRMB or FRMC can
be used.
. The recommended location is the bottom of the stack. This allows for
easier future expansion because the top sector can be expanded
without the Upgrade RF Cable Kit (EUCA).

Wall and pole installations

. Only the FRMC is used in wall and pole installations. Flexi front and
back covers must be used.
. The recommended location is either on the same plinth as the
System Module or on an adjacent plinth.

Appendix D Bending diameter for cables

D.1 Bending diameter for cables

The table below shows the minimum bending diameter of Nokia Flexi
EDGE BTS cables.

Static bending diameter refers to the allowed bend while the cable is fixed
(for example, when the cable is tied to the side of the cabinet). Dynamic
bending diameter refers to the allowed bend while the cable is in motion
(for example while routing the cable through the cable entry).

For the bending diameter of antenna jumper cables, refer to the cable
manufacturer.
