Before you start


A site grounding cable is not included in the delivery. Make sure you have the
necessary grounding cables. Do not chain grounding cables.

When modules are installed inside a cabinet, no separate earthing (grounding)


cable for the modules is required. The cabinet provides adequate earthing
(grounding).

If the base transceiver station (BTS) has more than one plinth, connect the
main earth (ground) to one of the plinths and earth (ground) all the modules to
that plinth. Alternatively, earth (ground) the modules to their own plinths and
then connect the plinths to the main earth (ground).

The use of dual-hole grounding lugs (up to six) is supported from Flexi
Mounting kit for Floor, Wall and Pole (FMFA) v. 105 onwards.

The plinth is mandatory when the modules are not mounted in an optional
cabinet or 19 inch rack.

Anchor the plinth on the floor with four anchoring bolts, 12 mm (0.47 in) in
diameter, and tighten it to 49 Nm.
The plinth must be fixed to the floor to meet the Earthquake Zone 4
requirement.

Next, ground the plinth to the site main ground. For more information, see
section Grounding principle of Flexi Multiradio 10 BTS.

RA41524EN05GLA0 24

The four module fixing screws between the module core and the module
casing must be tightened to 5 Nm (factory default is 2.2 Nm).

A plinth is required for mounting the modules on a wall.

If installing additional plinths one upon the other, the distance between the
upper mounting screw holes in first and second plinth must be 550 mm (21.7
in) minimum.

Note that a Flexi Multiradio 10 BTS can only be installed as a right-hand


installation due to optical cable routing reasons.
Take this into account when installing the plinth.

The stand-alone BTS can be installed on a wall.

To meet the earthquake requirement Telcordia GR-63-CORE and the


vibrational requirements for Earthquake Zone 4, the four module fixing screws
between the module core and the module casing must be tightened to 5 Nm
(factory default is 2.2 Nm).

When Attach the module casing to the plinth with two screws, secure the
screws with a thread-locking compound in pole and wall installations.
Use non-permanent thread-locking compound of medium strength (for
example Loctite 243 or equivalent).

A plinth and Flexi Pole Mounting Kit (FPKA) are required for mounting modules
on the pole.
FPKA is designed for poles between 60 mm (2.4 in) and 120 mm (4.7 in) in
diameter.
FPKA has room for four 3U modules. The modules can be installed on the
opposite sides of FPKA.

Perform the installation as completely as possible before lifting the modules


especially when installing the BTS to a high location.

Secure the screws with a thread-locking compound in pole and wall


installations. Use non-permanent thread-locking compound of medium
strength (for example Loctite 243 or equivalent).

NOTICE:
Incorrect installation may lead to damage to the modules. The modules must
be installed with the front panels facing left or right. Do not install the modules
with the front panels facing up or down.
NOTICE:
Excess torsion damages the casings. In wall and pole installation, do not
install more than two modules per plinth.
