Safety Precautions
Power over Ethernet
If the RTN 310 uses power over Ethernet, connect the RJ45 connector that has a P&E label on the P&E cable to the P&E port on the PI. No other cable is appropriate. Always hold an insulated part of the P&E cable. Never touch the RJ45 connector. Do not touch the pins inside the P&E port on the PI with your hands or a conductor. Be sure to connect the power cables of the PI correctly to the positive and negative terminals of the power supply device (see circled No.1 in the figure below). To prevent damage to power cables or devices caused by short-circuits, install a circuit breaker on the negative terminal of the power supply device (see circled No.2 in the figure below). The recommended fuse capacity is 6 A to 12 A. Do not install or remove a live P&E cable. Power over Ethernet supplies power over a maximum distance of 100 m.

DC power
If the RTN 310 uses DC power, do not install or remove a live
power cable. Any contact between the power cable core and a conductor can generate electric arc or sparks, which may cause

Corrosion
Anti-corrosion measures are required if the RTN 310 is installed in an area prone to corrosion. Contact your Huawei representative office for details. A location is corrosion-prone if it is:

fire or eye injury.


Connect the power cables correctly to the positive and negative terminals of the power supply device (see circled No.1 in the

within 3.7 km of the ocean or a salt water lake


within 3 km of a heavy pollution source such as a smelting factory or coal mine

figure below). To prevent damage to power cables or devices


caused by short-circuits, install a circuit breaker on the negative terminal of the power supply device (see circled No.2 in the figure

within 2 km of a medium pollution source such as a chemical, rubber, or


electroplating plant within 1 km of a light pollution source such as a food/leather processing plant or heating boilers

below). The recommended fuse capacity is 6 A to 12 A.


DC supplies power over a maximum distance of 300 m. Figure 2 DC power

High temperature
If the ambient temperature reaches 55 , the surface temperature of the RTN 310 and PI panel may exceed 70 . Wear protective gloves if you must handle the RTN 310 or power injector (PI) panel. A high-temperature warning label ( ) is attached to the RTN 310 and PI panel.

Safety Precautions
Thunderstorms
Do not work with electrical current in elevated or exposed locations during a thunderstorm.

Extreme weather conditions


The RTN 310 is usually installed outdoors. If weather conditions are extreme during an installation, personnel should follow local guidelines and regulations to safeguard personal health and safety.

Working in high places


The RTN 310 is usually installed in an elevated location, such as on a tower or on the roof of a building. Adhere to these guidelines for installations in elevated locations:
Installation personnel must be properly trained and qualified, and meet health requirements.

Installation personnel should wear helmets and safety belts and should work in pairs or teams so assistance is always available.
Do not work in high places during thunderstorms, blizzards, gales, or other extreme weather. When working outdoors, installation personnel should wear clothes and gloves appropriate to weather conditions, and footwear that protects against slipping. Hoisting tools should be tested before use.

All installation personnel and visitors onsite must wear helmets.

Microwave
High-power radio frequency signals are harmful. Avoid exposure to transmissions from the antenna of working microwave equipment that has this radiation warning symbol ( ). If you install or maintain an antenna on a

tower or pole bearing multiple antennas, avoid exposure to radiation from the other antennas.

Laser
Always wear protective glasses or goggles when you look into an optical port.

Cover unused ports with caps. Different methods can be used to change the polarization direction of antennas. If the method described in this document is n ot suitable for the type of antenna you have, use the method described in the installation manual delivered with your antennas. The polarization direction of antennas is vertical by default. If the planned polarization direction is horizontal, change the polarization direction to horizontal. If an antenna with a diameter of 0.3 m or 0.6 m is used in a direct mount and 1+0 scenario, you may install the RTN 310 on the antenna and then hoist them both into position on the tower. If an antenna with a diameter larger than 0.6 m is used, hoist the antenna into position separately to avoid overloading the hoisting rope. Before installing a P&E cable, bind the cable section that links the cable connector to the pole. This will protect the cable connector from damage. Be sure that the length of cable running from the binding point to the RTN 310 is sufficient to attach the cable connector to the P&E port on the RTN 310. Treat outdoor fibers in a similar manner to protect them from damage. Optional: Install the RTN 310 in split mount mode. Optional: Install the RTN 310 on the antenna in direct mount mode.

Cover unused ports with caps. Different methods can be used to change the polarization direction of antennas or hybrid couplers. If the method described in this document is not suitable for the type of antenna or hybrid coupler you have, use the method described in the installation manual delivered with your antennas or hybrid couplers. The polarization direction of antennas and hybrid couplers is vertical by default. If the planned polarization direction is horizontal, change the polarization direction to horizontal. If an antenna with a diameter of 0.3 m or 0.6 m is used in a direct mount and 1+1 scenario, you may install the RTN 310 and a hybrid coupler on the antenna and then hoist them both into position on the tower. If an antenna with a diameter larger than 0.6 m is used, hoist the antenna into position separately to avoid overloading the hoisting rope. Before installing a P&E cable, bind the cable section that links the cable connector to the pole. This will protect the cable connector from damage. Be sure that the length of cable running from the binding point to the RTN 310 is sufficient to attach the cable connector to the P&E port on the RTN 310. Treat the 1+1 cascading cable in a similar manner to protect them from damage. Optional: Install the RTN 310 on the antenna in direct mount mode. Follow the antenna use instructions to install the antenna. Optional: Change the polarization direction of the antenna/hybrid coupler to horizontal. Ensure that the polarization direction of the RTN 310 is the same as that of the hybrid coupler. Apply petroleum jelly around the exterior side of the hybrid coupler feeds and the RTN 310. Install the hybrid coupler on the antenna. Mount the RTN 310 on the hybrid coupler.

Aligning Antennas

1 Aligning Single-Polarized Antennas


Use the installation positions and heights of local and remote antennas to determine their azimuths. Adjust the pitch angles of the antennas to the horizontal position. Connect a multimeter to the RSSI port on the RTN 310 at the local end and measure the voltage value VBNC.

Loosen/tighten the elevation adjustment screw to move the local antenna vertically. Adjust the pitch angle until the RSL reaches the peak within the tracked range.
Repeat Steps 3 to 4 to ensure that three signal peaks are tracked in horizontal and vertical directions. When the local RSL reaches the maximum peak value, secure the local antenna. Adjust the remote antenna to ensure that the RSL at the local end and the RSL at the remote end reach the peak value. Tighten all screws on both antennas after the alignment is complete.

NOTE

Connected to the multimeter

If an OMT is used to connect the RTN 310s to the antenna in direct mount mode, align the antennas using the method for aligning single-polarized antennas. If flexible waveguides are used to connect the RTN 310s to the antenna in split mount mode, follow the procedure below to align the antennas.

Secure the remote antenna and loosen/tighten the level adjustment screw to move the antenna horizontally.

Power off the vertically-polarized RTN 310s and power on the horizontally-polarized RTN 310s at both ends of a radio link. This ensures that the antennas at both ends transmit horizontallypolarized signals. Adjust the azimuth and pitch angle of the antennas at both ends by referring to the description in "Aligning Single-Polarized Antennas. " Ensure that the main lobes of the horizontally-polarized signals are aligned.

a b

If three signal peaks are tracked, adjust the azimuth of the antenna until the received signal level (RSL) reaches the peak value at position 2.

If two signal peaks are tracked, adjust the azimuth of the antenna until the RSL reaches the middle between positions 4 and 5. Then, adjust the pitch angle of the antenna using the elevation adjustment screw until the three signal peaks on the line AA' appear. Finally, adjust the azimuth of the antenna until the RSL reaches the peak value at position 2.
If one signal peak is tracked, adjust the azimuth of the antenna until the RSL reaches the middle between positions 6 and 7. Then, adjust the pitch angle of the antenna using the elevation adjustment screw until the three signal peaks on the line AA' appear. Finally, adjust the azimuth of the antenna until the RSL reaches the peak value at position 2.

Use a multimeter to measure the RSL (P1) on the RSSI port of the horizontally-polarized RTN 310 at the local end.

Power on the vertically-polarized RTN 310 at the local end. Use a multimeter to measure the RSL on the RSSI port of the vertically-polarized RTN 310. Release the feed holders and turn the feed gently until the RSL reaches the minimum value (P2). The calculated XPD1 (XPD1 = P1 - P2) cannot be less than 30 dB. Make a note of the current angle (D1) of the feed. Power off the horizontally-polarized RTN 310s and power on the vertically-polarized RTN 310s at both ends of the radio link. Adjust the azimuth and pitch angle of the antennas by referring to the description in "Aligning Single-Polarized Antennas." Ensure that the main lobes of the vertically-polarized signals are aligned. Refer to Steps 3 and 4 to ensure that the calculated XPD2 (XPD2 = P3 - P4) is greater than or equal to 30 dB. Make a note of the current angle (D2) of the feed. Repeat Steps 1 to 6 to adjust the feed gently (ranging from D1 to D2), and ensure that XPD1 and XPD2 are greater than or equal to 30 dB. Tighten all screws on both antennas after the alignment is complete.

If the method described in this document is not suitable for the OMT model you have, use the method described in the installation manual delivered with your OMT. If an antenna with a diameter of 0.3 m or 0.6 m is used in a direct mount and XPIC OMT scenario, you may install the RTN 310 and a hybrid coupler on the antenna and then hoist them both into position on the tower. If an antenna with a diameter larger than 0.6 m is used, hoist the antenna separately to avoid overloading the hoisting rope.

An OMT provides two RTN 310 ports. The vertically-polarized RTN 310 must be connected to the port marked "V" and the horizontally-polarized RTN 310 must be connected to the port marked "H".

Apply petroleum jelly around the exterior side of the feed. Do not apply petroleum jelly to the end face of the feed. Mount the RTN 310 onto the OMT, using the polarization marks on the RTN 310 to determine the correct mounting position. Ensure that the service port of the RTN 310 faces downward. Tighten the four captive M6 screws on the RTN 310 in a diagonal sequence.

Apply lubricant to the surface of the feed Oring and flexible waveguide surface. Do not apply lubricant to the end face of the feed because the lubricant affects signal transmission. Feed O-ring

Install an outdoor fiber. Leave this position free and wait until step d.3 for fitting M8 bolts. Tighten bolts and adjustment nuts. d 1. Ensure that the OMT is in proper contact with the antenna. Install five M8 screws in the holes and tighten them until 10 mm (0.39 inches) of the screw remains exposed. 1. Insert the SFP optical module into the GE/COMBO port. The port provides mis-insertion prevention function. If you feel resistance in inserting the module, rotate it and insert again. 2. Hoist the outdoor fiber to the installation position. Connect the connector labeled "To: RRU" on the outdoor fiber to the GE/COMBO port on the RTN 310. 3. Connect the outdoor fiber to the GE port.

Secure the flexible waveguide.

Tie
Tying an outdoor binding strap to the end of a waterproof socket prevents the socket from slipping.

It is recommended that you connect the outdoor fiber to the GE port. However, if two GE optical services need to be transmitted, the COMBO port is used. Connect the outdoor fiber to the COMBO port in a similar manner.

An OMT has two RTN 310 ports. The vertically-polarized RTN 310 must be connected to the port marked "V" and the horizontally-polarized RTN 310 must be connected to the port marked "H".

Remove the anticorrosion paint and oxide layer at the ground PGND cable point. After the connection is complete, waterproof and rustproof the ground point.

Connect the OT terminal of the PGND cable to the ground nut.
