4.8 Cabling and Bundling


Routing and bundling cables according to regulations guarantees the reliable transmission of
signals.

4.8.1 Cabling
When routing cables, ensure that signals are transmitted reliably, and also ensure that future
maintenance is easy.

The cabling requirements are as follows:

l Signal cables should be routed separately from power cables, fiber jumpers, and jumpers.
l The specifications and cross-sectional area of the cable, and the route and position for the
cabling should be designed beforehand. All the cables should be arranged neatly.
l Cable turns should be smooth. The bending radius of cable turns should be larger than 60
mm, and the bending radius of fiber turns should be larger than 40 mm.
l There should be no damage to the insulating layer of the conducting wire.
l Cables that are routed along the wiring frame must be bundled.
They should be bundled closely with appropriate tightness. The spacing between cable ties
should be even.
l Cables in troughs do not need to be bundled. They should be placed neatly and in a straight
manner without any crossover. The cables should not protrude from the trough. The cables
should be bundled with cable ties at the inlets, outlets, and at the turns of the trough.
l IDU cables should be routed along the left and the right to facilitate operations, and should
not cover the board indicators.
In other words, the cables of the boards in the left slots should be routed to the left of the
cabinet and those in the right slots should be routed to the right of the cabinet.
l Leave enough slack when connecting cables to the IDU to facilitate insertion and removal
of the boards and the fan box. In the case of the IDU 620, the cables of the boards on the
left should have enough slack so that they can be routed away from the front of the fan box.

4.8.2 Bundling
Cables must be tightly bundled. The bundled cables should be neatly arranged.

The bundling requirements are as follows:

Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd
OptiX RTN 600 Radio Transmission System
Installation Guide 4 Installing the Cables of the IDU 610/620

l Do not bind the power cable with other types of cables.


l The cables should be bundled neatly.
l Use cable ties of different specifications according to actual circumstances.
l Do not connect two or more cable ties and use them as one to bundle cables in case the
tightness is reduced.
l After the cable ties are fixed, the extra part of the cable ties should be trimmed such that
no burrs exist.
l The spacing between the cable ties should be even and should be three or four times the
diameter of the bundle.
l When making turns for bundled cables, ensure that the bending radius is as large as possible
so that the cable cores do not break.

4.8.3 Bundling Fiber Jumpers


Use a special binding strap to bundle fiber jumpers.
Observe the following requirements when bundling fiber jumpers:
l Arrange fiber jumpers tidily into a bundle before bundling them.

4 Installing the Cables of the IDU 610/620 Installation Guide

l Ensure that the mat side, and not the hook side, of the binding strap is in contact with the
fiber jumpers.
l Bundle fiber jumpers with appropriate tightness. Do not bind them too tightly.
l The spacing between two binding straps should not exceed 40 cm.
l Do not bundle too many fiber jumpers together.
In the case of the 2 mm fiber jumpers, a maximum of 100 pieces can be bound together. In
the case of the 3 mm fiber jumpers, a maximum of 60 pieces can be bound together. If there
are a large number of fiber jumpers, bind them into several bundles.

7 Installing the ODU with the Waveguide


Interface

About This Chapter

The ODU with the waveguide interface includes 738 GHz ODUs. Such an ODU is installed
on an antenna in the integrated mounting mode or is connected to an antenna through a flexible
waveguide. When you install such an ODU, adopt proper installation procedures depending on
the configuration between the ODU and the antenna.
7.1 Introduction to the ODU
The ODU is the outdoor unit of the OptiX RTN 600. The ODU converts and amplifies signals.
7.2 Installing One ODU on One Single-Polarized Antenna (Integrated Mounting)
In this case, use four latches to directly mount an ODU on the back of a single-polarized antenna.
7.3 Installing Two ODUs on One Single-Polarized Antenna (Integrated Mounting)
In this case, install two ODUs on the back of a single-polarized antenna by using a hybrid coupler.
7.4 Installing One ODU on One Single-Polarized Antenna (Separate Mounting)
The ODU can be installed separate from the single-polarized antenna. In this case, the ODU is
installed onto an ODU adapter, which is connected to the single-polarized antenna through a
flexible waveguide.
7.5 Installing ODUs on One Dual-Polarized Antenna
Installing ODUs on one dual-polarized antenna is similar to installing one ODU on one single-
polarized antenna in the separate mounting mode. The difference between the two methods lies
in the method of adjusting the polarization direction of the antenna due to the fact that the dual-
polarized antenna has two feed booms.

9.4 Routing and Bundling the IF Cable


In actual situations, you must strictly observe the regulations when routing and bundling the IF
cable.
The routing requirements are as follows:
l The IF cable should be routed from top downwards and should be bound at the time of
routing.
l The specifications and cross-sectional area of the cable, and the route and position for the
cabling should be decided beforehand. The cable should be arranged neatly without any
overlapping or crossover.
l The IF cable should be curved for waterproof consideration under the ODU and before
entering the IDU room.
l The bending radius of the IF cable should be larger than 30 cm.

The bundling requirements are as follows:


l The IF cable routed along the wiring frame must be bundled. It should be closely bundled
with appropriate tightness. The spacing between the cable ties for outdoor use (the cable
ties for outdoor use are in black) should be even.
l The IF cable should be bound by using the cable ties for outdoor use every one meter.
l The cable ties for outdoor use should face the same direction. There should be a slack of 3
mm to 5 mm before cutting the cable ties.

9.5 Grounding the IF Cable


To ground the IF cable, first determine the grounding point depending on the installation mode
and the length of the IF cable, and then ground the cable by using the grounding clip.

9.5.1 Grounding Points of the IF Cable


The grounding point depends on the installation mode and the length of the IF cable. Generally,
the IF cable should be grounded to a minimum of three points. When the IF cable is longer than
60 meters, add a grounding point for every extra 30 meters.

Figure B-2 PVC tape

Precautions
To facilitate the removal of tapes, first wrap a layer of PVC tape and then wrap the waterproof
insulation tape over the first layer.

Procedure
Step 1 Clean the connector or the grounding clip.
Step 2 Uncoil the waterproof insulation tape.
Step 3 Stick one end of the tape to the IF cable 2 to 5 cm away from the connector or the grounding
clip.
The sticky side should face inwards.
Step 4 Stretch the tape until it is 3/41/2 as wide as its original size. Stretch the tape in this manner
when performing the following steps.
Step 5 Wrap the cable spirally towards the connector or the grounding clip at a point that is 2 to 5 cm
away from the connector or the grounding clip. Make sure that the overlapping area of the
adjacent tape layers is 1/2 of the stretched width.
Step 6 When the tape reaches a point that is 2 to 5 cm away from the connector or the grounding clip
on the other side, reverse the wrapping direction so that the tape reaches the starting point.
Step 7 When the tape reaches the starting point, reverse the wrapping direction so that the tape reaches
the other ending point.
That is, there are three layers of waterproof insulation tape.
Step 8 After wrapping, squeeze the tape until it sticks to the cable. This ensures that there is no air
between the layers of tape.
Step 9 Similarly, wrap three layers of PVC tape over the waterproof insulation tape.
During the wrapping, maintain the stretched length such that the width of the PVC tape is 3/4
to 1/2 of the original size.
Step 10 After waterproof processing, use the outdoor bundling strap to bind the PVC tape tightly at the
positions 1 cm away from the wrapping edges at both ends, to prevent aging and falling off of
the PVC tape.

C Checking the Cable Circuit

During cable routing, bundling, and installing of connectors, there may be short circuits or open
circuits in cables. Hence, it is necessary to test the cables after all the procedures are complete.
This section describes how to use a multimeter to test a cable with the DB44 connector at one
end and one group of SMB connectors at the other end.

Tools and Equipment


l Multimeter
l Short-circuiting line

Procedure
Step 1 According to the pin assignment of the DB44 connector, use the short-circuiting line to short-
circuit two pins that correspond to an SMB connector.
Step 2 Use the multimeter to measure the resistance between the internal and external conductors of
the SMB connector. The resistance should be zero ohms.

C Checking the Cable Circuit Installation Guide

NOTE

Figure C-1 shows how to check the circuit of connector R1. The tip and ring of the core of connector R1
are pin 23 and pin 38 respectively based on the pin assignment table. Hence, short-circuit pin 23 and pin
38 when checking the circuit.

Step 3 Remove the short-circuiting line.


Step 4 Read the multimeter. At this time, the multimeter also measures the resistance between the
internal and external conductors of the SMB connector.
The resistance should be infinite.
Step 5 Repeat steps 14 to test other core wires of the E1 cable.
