Pole Mounting Configuration
OMNI-121-V3 is a pole and wall mountable, medium gain, omnidirectional antenna. It can be mounted outdoors on a pole of up to 50mm in diameter, against a wall.Follow the instructions below for installation.
- Lay the antenna out at the installation site and carefully assemble the antenna to the L-bracket using the provided bolts.
- Next place the U-bolts around the pole and push both the econo brackets and the assembled L-bracket through the U-bolts. Tighten the nuts on the U-bolt until the bracket is secured to the pole.
- Mount the antenna so that there is at least 1 meter of clearance in all directions around it and unobstructed line of sight to the cell tower’s strongest signal.
- This antenna should be mounted on a wall using the wall plugs as shown in the figure below
- Strain relieve the cable to the wall with saddles or cable tie to the closest structure.
- Connect the end of cable to radio device
Antenna Mounting Precautions
- Place the antenna at the highest point m possible and ensure that there aren’t any surrounding obstructions to the antenna.
- In order to avoid communication interference, ensure that the antenna is placed at least 0.5m away from other antennas and metal objects.
- Avoid installing the antenna near a chimney, as the smoke and soot emitted by the chimney can obstruct the signal level achieved by the antenna.
- Install the antenna away from heat sources and flammable gases.
- Avoid wrapping the cables around the pole. Route the antenna cables straight down the inside of the pole to avoid using extra equipment such as cable ties.
- Use the minimum cable length required. Do not run more cable than needed to ensure minimum cable losses are achieved.
- Never pull on the cable connectors; pull only on the cable ensuring the cable is not under tension.
- The allowable cable bend radius is 30mm.
- Cover connector with insulation tape before threading them through a hole.
- If you are installing an antenna for the first time or unsure about how to install your antenna, obtain the help of a professional installer.
- Carefully survey the installation site before installation to locate secure handholds, dangerous conditions (such as power lines and weak roofs) and the safest and most convenient placement for ladders ifnecessary.
- When installing your antenna, remember:
- Do not install near power lines as they can electrocute you.
- Do not install on a wet or windy day or when lightning or thunder is in the area.
- Wear shoes with rubber soles and heels and protective clothing (long sleeve shirt or jacket) and rubber gloves.
- Avoid operating while under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
- Make sure that any loose fitting jewellery or clothing is secured and tie back long hair as they can get caught in moving parts during installation.
- If the antenna assemble starts to fall, get away from it and let it fall to avoid harm to yourself.
- When drilling, remember
- Use safety goggles when drilling the holes.
- Avoid using bits that are dull, bent or damaged.
- Be aware of where your fingers are in relation to the drill bit when using the drilling machine.
- To stop the drilling machine, let the drill chuck come to a complete stop on its own. Do not grasp the chuck in an attempt to stop the drill bit.
- Avoid awkward hand positions where a sudden slip could cause a hand to move into the drill bit or cutting tool.
CAUTION: Antennas must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20cm from all persons so as to comply with SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) RF Exposure requirements.European Waste Electronic Equipment Directive 2002/96/EC Please ensure that old waste electricals and electronics are recycled.Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)This product is fully compliant with the RoHS 2 directive.
