1. RTU Layout
The exact layout should be defined in layout and wiring drawings supplied with the RTU. If these have
not been supplied, then the RTU layouts shown below can be used as a guide.

Every RTU has a backplane (eg BA-4, BA-6), a power supply (eg PSU-3 or PS-11) and a processor
module (eg PC-1 or CP-11). The two common types of RTUs are shown below.

PSU-3
BA-4 BA-6
PC-1 PS11 CP11

12V DC

MAINS MAINS
POWER POWER

An RTU can have additional communications ports (MC-11) and a wide variety of input/output
modules (eg. IO-4, AI-1, DI-5). Some of these are shown below.

PSU-3
BA-4 BA-6
PC-1 MC11 IO-4 PS11 CP-11
CP11 MC11 AI-1 DI-5

12V DC

MAINS MAINS
POWER POWER

If a communications module is used, standard practice is to install it to the right of the processor. IO
modules are usually installed in alphabetical order from left to right. Eg an AI-1 module would be
located to the left of a DI-5 module. The modules can be installed in any order if so desired (except a
PC-1 must be installed in the leftmost slot of a BA-4 backplane since it has two sockets).

3. Removable I/O Connector


Each I/O module has a removable I/O connector. This allows the I/O module to be swapped without
having to detach the field wiring from the I/O connector. The I/O connector is secured to the module
using two fastening screws as shown below.

4. Backplane Setup
If a single backplane is being used then the switches on the backplane do not need to be changed.

When linking two backplanes, please set the backplane switches as shown below (for backplane
revisions 2.1, 2.2 and 3.2). A data cable is required to link the backplanes. If a backplane does not
have its own power supply, a power cable will also be required to connect it to a powered backplane.

The examples below show linking for BA-xx PLUS (revision 3.2) backplanes. When linking BA-xx
PLUS backplanes (green Phoenix data connectors) with the older BA-xx backplanes (black Harwin
data connectors), BAC-INT-0x data cables are used. These cables have a Phoenix connector on one
end and a Harwin connector on the other. All data cables are straight through and do not contain
crossovers. To link two older BA-xx backplanes, a BAC-0x data cable is used.

5. Enclosure Layout
CAUTION! A RADIO SHOULD ONLY BE POWERED WHEN IT HAS AN ANTENNA CONNECTED.
THIS WILL PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE RADIO IF IT TRANSMITS.

All components of a Kingfisher PLUS+ RTU shall be installed inside of an enclosure providing safety
and environmental protection. The enclosure shall be made from metal or other material with a
flammability rating of V-0 or better in accordance with the requirements of the IEC 60950-1:2001
standard for a fire enclosure. An enclosure is not required to prevent fire hazard if the RTU is installed
above concrete or other non-combustible surface. Examples of enclosure layouts are shown below.

5.1 Battery and GPO Bracket


When using a 7 AH backup battery, a standard battery holder is available from your RTU supplier. The
bracket supports the battery and allows a General Power Outlet (GPO) to be mounted on the front
using M3 x 10 mm pan head screws. The battery holder also allows an ISB50LN lightning arrestor to
be mounted underneath.

6. 19” Rack Mounting

6.1 How To Mount a 12-Slot Backplane


A 12 slot backplane (BA-12) is mounted in a 19 inch rack using two MBR-3 mounting brackets. The
MBR-3 brackets replace the surface mount brackets supplied with BA-12 backplanes.

Installation Note: The holes in the MBR-3 brackets that are used to attach the brackets to the back of
the backplane are drilled oversize to accommodate slight variances in racking equipment. By
loosening these screws, pushing the brackets toward the centre of the backplane and then re-
tightening the screws, the unit will fit freely into any correctly sized 19-inch rack.

6.2 How To Mount a Four Or Six Slot Backplane


A four slot backplane (BA-4 or BA-40) or a six slot backplane (BA-6) is mounted in a 19 inch rack
using a TEL-RAK-002 mounting bracket. One BA-6 or two BA-4/BA-40 backplanes can be attached to
the TEL-RAK-002 using the surface mount brackets supplied with each backplane. The TEL-RAK-002
is supplied with eight M3 x 5 mm screws for attaching the backplane(s).

8.1 Analog Inputs


A combination of loop powered (2-wire) and self powered (3 or 4-wire) analog input transmitters can
be used on the one module (AI-1, AI-10, IO-3 or IO-4).

By default, each analog input is designed to accept 4 to 20 mA. Removing a link on the back of the
module will allow 0 to 20mA operation for all channels of an AI-1, AO-2, IO-3 or IO-4. The current or
voltage range for all channels of an AI-10 module is software configurable.

* When using the +24V output to power a transmitter, the negative input terminal of the analog input channel (2, 4,
6, 8, 12, 14, 16 or 18) must be wired to the OV terminal (10 or 20). This will complete the current loop due to
electrical isolation between the input channel and the module +24V supply.

Note: Any channels sharing the same power source (e.g. +24V from module or a field power supply) are no
longer isolated from one other.

11.1 Antenna Cable Selection And Installation
Recommendations:
 Only use RG58 within an enclosure or within a building and if the cable run is less than 5 metres.
The cable is too fragile and the cable loss is too high for outside longer cable runs.
 Typically use RG213 up to 10 metres. This suits 6 metre water pipes that are commonly used for
antenna masts.
 After 10 metres it becomes a question of how much signal loss can be tolerated. LDF4 or LDF5
have lower signal loss per metre as listed below.
 Minimise the number of connections in the cable run – connections have a great deal of loss.

Loss per m of coax (@450MHZ) Loss per m of coax (@900MHZ):


RG58 0.44 dB RG58 0.60 dB (Do not use!)
RG213 0.16 dB RG213 0.24 dB
LDF4 0.05 dB LDF4 0.07 dB
LDF5 0.03 dB LDF5 0.04 dB

11.2 How To Assemble Antenna Connectors


The following instructions apply to all three connectors:

1. Place clamp nut and plain gasket over cable.


2. Trim outer sheath from cable to dimension shown.
3. Fold back braid and insert ferrule to trap braid between outer sheath and ferrule.
4. Trim off surplus braid.
5. Trim dielectric to dimension shown, and check that exposed centre conductor length is as
specified.
6. Tin centre conductor.
7. Slide rear insulator over dielectric to butt against ferrule.
8. Mount contact (male for plugs, female for jacks) over centre conductor with shoulder pressed
against rear insulator.
9. Hold cable and contact firmly together, and solder.
10. Slide plain gasket and clamp nut up to ferrule, trapping braid.
11. Fit front insulator over contact to butt against rear insulator.
12. Press sub-assembly into body as far as possible and engage clamp nut.
13. Holding body and cable rigid, tighten clamp nut to compress plain gasket and retain cable.
