OSM Series 300/310 and RC10 Controller Quick Site Installation Guide

1. Pole Installation
 Fit bracket to OSM Tank (if not already fitted).
 Fit Surge Arrestors (recommended prior to OSM installation on pole).
 Drill holes through the pole for the bracket (280mm apart, 24mm dia).
On concrete poles use bolt on top hole and steel strap through slots provided in the
bracket.
 Lift OSM Tank (use lifting points) and bolt to pole.
 Repeat for VT if supplied. Ensure that the LV connection to the VT is sealed with a
gland.
2. HV Cables and Bird Guards
 Connect HV cables to line.
 Connect HV Connectors on each bushing. For Tunnel Connectors use 8mm Allen Key
to torque the hexagonal socket screws to 30Nm. For Tin-plated Brass NEMA 2-hole
Palm Connectors attach a matching lug using two M12 bolts (torque 30Nm).
 Connect each Surge Arrestor to its bushing with a short length of cable.
 Fit Bird Guards (recommended) to all bushings. Bird guards should not go below the
first shed on the bushing (see picture on this page).
3. RC10 Installation
 Lift and secure RC10 to pole (use steel straps for concrete or coach screws for wood).
4. Earthing
2
 Run a single, unbroken 35mm copper conductor from OSM tank earth point
directly to the earth connection at the base of the pole.
2
 Use short length 35mm copper conductors for VT and RC10 earth points and bond
to main earth conductor using line taps or crimp connections.
5. Control Cable Connection
 Insert and lock Control Cable into OSM Tank.
 Run Control Cable along pole and feed Canon Plug into RC10 cubicle. Align notch
correctly before inserting into SIM connection. Rotate locking nut to secure.
 Secure control cable plate with wing nuts. Roll up excess length of cable and safely
tie to pole. Ensure there is no tension in the Harting connection.
6. LV Auxiliary Supply
 Connect the AC supply (from the pole mounted VT or other source) to the RC10
circuit breaker.

 Use a 2 pole isolation point on the LV supply cable. E
7. Installation Checks OK
 VT supply correct
 RC10 Circuit Breaker turned ON
 Current and Voltage Readings on the panel are correct
 Trip/Close Test successful E

 All holes in cubicle are sealed using glands A N


 Conduct Protection and SCADA Tests as Required

 ALL CABLE SEPARATION FROM EARTH CONDUCTOR MUST BE MINIMUM 150mm


 LENGTH OF TEE-OFF TO THE CUBICLE FROM MAIN EARTH BOND MUST BE < 1.5m
 USE CRIMP TYPE CONNECTION LUGS FOR TERMINATION OF EARTH BOND
 CONTROL CABLE MINIMUM BEND RADIUS IS 300mm
 SECURE CABLES ALONG POLE WITH SADDLES OR STRAPS
 USE PARALLEL GROOVE CLAMPS TO CONNECT CABLES TO FEEDER
 ALWAYS USE GLANDS FOR ANY CABLE ENTRY TO ENSURE STRAIN RELIEF AND PROTECTION FROM ENVIRONMENT
 STEEL POLE CANNOT BE USED AS EARTH. A SEPARATE COPPER CONDUCTOR MUST BE USED
 PLEASE REFER TO SECTION 9.4 SITE INSTALLATION IN THE OSM USER MANUAL FOR CORRECT INSTALLATION
