4 i remote electrical tilt i general information why not make life easier with the flexret and rfid-rcu flexret module modern mobile communication networks often provide the pos the flexret unit provides one aisg input and one output sibility of controlling the electrical downtilt of antennas remotely only one aisg cable is needed for control of course flexret as a result most antennas need to be equipped with remote antennas can also be deployed in a daisy chain configuration control units rcus in order to be able to change the downtilt with further flexret antennas and/or external rcus without the need to physically access the sites for site/antenna sharing purposes a gender adapter type no not only do these rcus need to be installed they also need to 86010162 or a site sharing adapter type no 86010154/55 be configured in accordance with the connected antenna this can be used with a site sharing adapter up to three respectively results in an additional amount of time spent on site

remote electrical tilt i general information i 7 kathrein’s ret system already used and installed all over the world umts site of a german operator at the “oktoberfest” in munich with kathrein’s ret system installation of 3 x 12-port kathrein flexret antenna 80010899 with 6-way site sharing adapter antenna site for lte 800 and umts 2100 with two kathrein dual-band antennas and rcus for each

remote electrical tilt i control devices i 9 portable control adapter pca the pca is a portable controller for the on-site configuration of asig antenna line devices such as dtmas rcus or flexret antennas this product is designed for mobile applications to be used by installers or maintenance staff with temporary access to the antenna site mainly the pca is used for the configuration of aisg devices directly after the installation the pca consists of a small control box and windows-based software to be installed on a laptop the control box with dimensions of 40 x 95 x 160 mm h xwxd transforms the usb interface into an aisg-conform interface rs 485 dc portable control adapter voltage together with the supplied software all functions of the connected devices can be controlled via a laptop up to 27 ret devices external rcus or flexret antennas can be managed using one single pca the pca can also be used to configure the site sharing adapter fot this special site sharing configuration

12 i remote electrical tilt i installation guidelines installation guidelines – flexret antennas single bts operation ret modes according to 3gpp the flexret antennas can be operated in singleret default and multiret mode which are switchable the mode required is dependent on the mode operated by the bts any queries related to the mode of operation of the base station should be directed to the corresponding bts supplier the set mode has no impact on the operation of the antenna but only on the communication between the primary and the flexret antenna for ret control of the flexret antenna via one base station operation with several bts bts only one aisg cable rs 485 needs to be connected to the aisg input of the flexret module of the antenna to if the ret control of a flexret antenna cannot be handled via achieve this remove the protection cap from the aisg input one single ret-signal path the different ret signals need to be which is marked by the word “in” the

14 i remote electrical tilt i installation guidelines daisy chain configuration flexret antennas can also be used in a daisy chain configuration daisy chain configuration using a site sharing adapter remove the protection caps from the aisg input and output of if more than two bts are connected to the flexret antenna via the first antenna which are marked by the words “in” and “out” a site sharing adapter the max number of flexret antennas in connect the control cable to the input remove the protection daisy chain is limited to three a combination with external rcus cap from the aisg input of the second flexret antenna and is not possible in this case attach a control cable to interconnect the input with the output of the first antenna proceed like this for further antennas please note do not remove the protection cap of the aisg output of the last flexret module a combination with external rcus in daisy chain is also possible please see the installation

16 i remote electrical tilt i installation guidelines installation guidelines – attaching the external rcu 1 ▪ ▪ ▪ twist off the protective cap completely from the antenna completely remove the black adjustment wheel by simply 3 ▪ ▪ push the attachment nut of the rcu down towards the housing place the rcu carefully over the adjustment spindle ob pulling it downwards serving the correct alignment of the rcu with regard to the check the proper function of the phase shifter over the entire antenna i.e the flat surfaces of the attachment fixture on the adjustment range by twisting the adjustment wheel in such a antenna side and those inside the rcu housing must lie flat way that the spindle moves completely in and out reset the downtilt to minimum tilt against each other ▪ 2 push up the rcu carefully to the stop at the antenna 4 tighten the rcu attachment nut using a torque-wrench type no 85010077 wrench width 41 mm min torque 15 nm max torque

remote electrical tilt i questions and answers i 19 can i use the flexret in daisy chain what if i want to deploy site sharing with different bts yes it is possible to connect different flexret antennas via daisy chain the maximum number of antennas usable in a daisy if the ret control of a flexret antenna cannot be handled via chain is dependent upon the primary device e.g up to nine one single ret-signal path the different ret signals need to be flexret antennas with the alc or up to 27 flexret antennas interconnected to the flexret input of the antenna for this with the pca two different possibilities exist if exactly two bts need to be connected to the flexret antenna a gender adapter 86010162 can be used if more than two bts are connected a site sharing adapter is needed 86010154/55 with these site sharing adapters up to three respectively six different bts or operators can be connected to one common flexret antenna input can i use the flexret together with an external rcu yes a

remote electrical tilt i questions and answers i 21 can the port extender be combined with external rcus the flexret modules with connected port extender can also be how many flexret antennas/external rcus can be controlled when using a port extender daisy chained with external rcus if the rcus are daisy chained behind a port extender it is essential that the external rcus the number of controllable devices is not limited by the port ex are connected to the correct output of the port extender if the tender the maximum number of controllable devices depends rcus shall be addressed by the bts connected to input “in” on the bts of the port extender they must be connected to output “out” if the rcus shall be addressed by the bts connected to input “g-in” of the port extender they must be connected to output “g-out” if an output of the port extender remains unused it should be terminated with the protection caps included in the scope of

24 i remote electrical tilt i questions and answers how can the ret mode be switched to switch between the modes the general solution is to insert the vendor specific command into the field “installerid” and to is it also possible to have automatic antenna configuration for antennas without the flexret functionality perform a subsequent rescan a further innovative solution for all existing antennas with exter ▪ ▪ singleret mode command “3gpps” nal rcus is provided by kathrein the rcu with rfid feature multiret mode command “3gppm” providing rfid-based communication between the antenna and the rcu pca menu wizard setup how does the rcu with rfid feature work the upgraded rcu 86010148v01 is equipped with an internal for kathrein’s alc and pca the mode switch is possible via a rfid reader in addition our antennas are successively equip drop down menu ped with the corresponding rfid tags all relevant antenna data is stored on this
