example sheet metal steel, aluminium extrusion).
Check with the manufacturer for weight limitations.
If it is an open rack, it is recommended to use module
casings and covers for safety purposes.
Rack must provide adequate grounding contact for
modules. If the rack is rusty, dirty, or painted, then
module grounding cables must be used
Make sure the rack is securely mounted to the floor
according to the manufacturer's instructions.

-FCOA is in the picture


-When raining, some water may enter the cabinet through the door and back wall. It
is important that the water can exit via the holes on the cabinet floor. If the cabinet is
exposed to rain, it must be installed at least 20...50 mm off the ground by using, for
example, an I-beam rail, metal grating or C-bars.
-FCOA can be equipped with an FCFA air filter. Basically, it over-pressurizes the
cabinet.
-Heating can be used to assist that in temperatures below -10C BUT there is no
heater unit in the Flexi BTS product structure. Below -10 C, the Dual TRX Module
heats itself, and the other modules function in the whole operational temperature
range.

Site earth and BTS grounding requirements

The impedance of the site earth connection shall be as low as possible:


The earthing (grounding) resistance target of the BTS site is 10 . If it
is not possible to reach this target due to difficult conditions, for instance
in areas such as solid rocks or dry desert, the earthing (grounding)
resistance can be max. 150 .
The cross-sectional area of the Main Earthing Conductor shall not be
less than live and neutral conductors nor less than 6 mm2,
recommented size is 16 mm2.

An AC power plug with a protective earth (PE) connection is not


sufficient for BTS use. Grounding must have a fixed, non-removable
connection.

Confidential IPR applies


49 Nokia Siemens Networks Module 2 Installation Planning / MNa / 2007-09-10

BTS site grounding is divided into two contexts: site earthing and site equipment
grounding.

To protect the BTS from damaging overvoltages through antenna equipment,


communication cables, or power supply lines, grounding
cabling must be planned and installed before the installation of the base station. To
avoid interference, it is recommended that large grounding
systems are designed case-specifically.

The function of the site earth is to convoy the lethal and hazardous voltages and
electric currents from the site main grounding point (main
grounding busbar) to the earth.
Site earth and BTS grounding requirements
NOTE: Follow local requirements for earthing (grounding). The principles and
requirements vary in different countries.

Observe the following recommendations when planning the BTS grounding:


Grounding cable cross-section has to be more than any of AC or power feeding
cable cross-section.
The grounding cable is connected with screws to the BTS grounding point.
The grounding cable must be connected to a main grounding busbar with a
minimum of 6 mm2 grounding cable.
Route the grounding cables as directly as possible from the equipment to the
grounding point. Avoid unnecessary loops and sharp bending of the grounding
cable. The grounding cables should not be run parallel with power cables.
The external antenna feeders must also be grounded according the local
legislation if the antennas are exposed to lightning.

Overvoltage protections is required in installations
with a risk of overvoltage by induction or indirect
lightning (Class II): feederless and distributed
installations
FSEC protects Flexi BTS sub-modules against
surge pulse(s) in power feeding lines. E.g. when
ESMA on top of a mast -> DC feed is long and
susceptible to indirect strokes
NOTE: FSEC is currently available for Flexi
WCDMA only
The FSEC gives Class II (C, T2) protection for DC

The same mechanics can also be used for AC line
devices, but the connectors and OVP devices need to
be changed.
The FSEC box can also be used for altering the DC
cable diameter

The minimum cross-section of the mains power copper (Cu)
conductor is the following:

When 220-240 VAC is used, power cables must be 1.5 - 2.5 mm2
(15...13 AWG)
When 100-110 VAC is used (split phase), power cables must be
1.5 - 2.5 mm2 (15...13 AWG)
When 48 VDC is used, power cables must be 25...35 mm2 (4...2
AWG)

Antenna Line

Antenna jumper cable requirements:


1/2" or 3/8" antenna jumper cables can be used. 1/2" antenna
cable connectors can be connected directly to the module if a right
angle connector is used.
The length should be determined based on the Flexi EDGE BTS
installation option (for example pole, wall, cabinet, 3rd party
cabinet) and the distance of the BTS from the antenna feeder line.
Antenna jumper cables must be IP54-rated or better.

Basically, Jumper cables are lowloss and flexible, which allows easier connection
to units such as the WCDMA MHA unit without causing unnecessary stress to the
connected units (vs. feeder cables).
