Integra-E Configuration and Installation video series – EPISODE 3


Welcome to the Integra-E configuration and installation video series. In this episode you are going to learn how to mount an Integra-E FODU on the antenna, how to apply power and set up MNG and data connections. Mount the antenna on the pole or tower structure according to the installation manual provided by the antenna`s manufacturer. The E-band antenna interface has a circular flange. Both Hi and Lo units have to be installed in the same polarization. Remove the protective sticker and look
at the flange before installation. Polarization is shown by the engraved arrow on the flange. We strongly recommend checking polarization before
site arrival. To change polarization refer to the user manual on our website. Before attaching the radio to the antenna flange, use the supplied allen key to loosen the clamps a half-turn at the top and completely at the bottom. As shown! While putting the Integra-E on the
antenna adapter flange, make sure the O-ring is in place and the adapter
flange fits on the transition flange socket. Hang the radio on the
antenna flange by hooking the clamps and tighten the lower flange clamps so you
can adjust the leveling. Use a level to verify that the radio is properly
leveled. Then tighten all four flange clamps properly and make sure the radio is fixed on the antenna. When the radio is installed, attach the grounding cable
to the grounding screw of the Integra. The grounding cable should be connected
to the grounding circuit and fixed properly! It is recommended to have 60
watts of power supplied to the radio. Three options are available for applying
power to the Integra radio. One! Using a PoE cable from the SAF injector. Along with the power connection, there is also Gigabit Ethernet connection to the LAN1 port, if required. Two! Using a separate 48 volt power supply
and providing power to separate 2-wire power port connection. Please pay attention to the polarity of the connector pins. Three! Using both connections simultaneously: and separate 48 volt power supply unit for power
redundancy. Note that Power over Ethernet injector must be configured in “forced” mode to provide this functionality. LAN2 and LAN3 optical ports are used for
management and user data providing 10 Gigabit Ethernet functionality over SFP+ modules. Using these ports is mandatory for obtaining full 10Gbit/s throughput over the link. Consider installing the fiber conduit kit for
cable protection. You are now ready to align the radio. The alignment procedure will be covered in the next episode. Thank you, for watching!
