RADius 1000 Installation Manual, rev. 9 Installation

3.3 Location of the system parts

The following sections describe various procedures regarding mounting of the different
system parts:

3.3.1 The Interrogator Unit

For location of the Interrogator Unit, consider the following:

• The sector which the Interrogator is supposed to cover. The Interrogator has an operating
sector of 90 degrees in both vertical and horizontal direction.

• The longest Interrogator axis must be horizontally oriented.

• The Interrogator should be located high above sea level.

• The Interrogator should not be mounted close to the ship side or other large metal
surfaces. This is to avoid multi path effects.

• The Interrogator needs free line of sight to the Transponders.

• The Interrogator should be mounted to a rigid mast, rail or wall to limit the risk of
mechanical resonances caused by vibration. Excessive (> 1 g rms) vibrations could affect
the quality of the measurements.

• During dual Interrogator installations, the two Interrogators should ideally be mounted
with a 90-degree offset as shown in Figure 8. This will make it possible to achieve an
180-degree operating sector.

Note! The longest Interrogator axis must be horizontally oriented, or else the RADius
system will not be able to track any transponders.

A typical operational scenario for a single Interrogator solution is shown in Figure 3. The
system will typically operate against several Transponders simultaneously and the
Interrogator should be installed in the direction where the vessel will see one or more
Transponders in the operational environment. For a supply vessel a good location for
installation can be outside railing on top of bridge roof, pointing aft. To avoid multi path
effects during operation, it is important not to locate the transponders close to the ship/rig
side.

14
RADius 1000 Installation Manual, rev. 9 Installation

Figure 3 Typical operational scenario for a supply vessel operation, single Interrogator

Supply vessels may operate with stern, bow, starboard or port side of the vessel facing the
ship/platform. For vessels which alternate orientations it is highly recommended to use a dual
Interrogator system. A typical operational scenario for a dual Interrogator solution is shown in
Figure 3.

Figure 4 Typical operational scenario for a supply vessel operation, dual Interrogator

15
RADius 1000 Installation Manual, rev. 9 Installation

3.3.2 The Transponders

Please note that Transponders located at the same side of the vessel MUST have different
identification numbers (ID).

For location of the Transponders, consider the following:

• The Transponder is placed on a reference location, e.g. rail of rig, which is to be


positioned by an Interrogator.

• The orientation of the Transponder is optimised according to its 90-degree operating


sector (both vertical and horizontal) and to the operational location for the vessel(s)
containing the Interrogators.

• The longest Transponder axis must be horizontally oriented.

• The Transponder requires free line of sight to the Interrogators.

• The Transponder should be mounted to a rigid mast, rail or wall to limit the risk of
mechanical resonances caused by vibration.

• The RADius 600 High Gain Transponder shall preferably be mounted in a location not
too distant from its power supply (< 200 metres) in order to minimize cable resistance.

• The Transponder should not be mounted close to large metal surfaces (e.g. rig side) to
avoid multi path effects that could decrease accuracy.

Caution! The longest Transponder axis must be horizontally oriented or else the
RADius system will not be able to track the transponders.

3.3.3 Transponder Power Supply

Indoor mounting is recommended. Outdoor mounting may be allowed as the equipment is


ingress protected to IP65. The Transponder Power Supply shall preferably be mounted not too
distant from the Transponder (< 200 metres) in order to minimize cable resistance. The AC
cord/plug is used as power disconnecting device.

3.3.4 The Controller Unit

For location of the Controller Unit, consider the following:

• The Controller Unit must be resiliently mounted.

• The warranty will be void if the Processing Unit is removed from the cabinet.

16
RADius 1000 Installation Manual, rev. 9 Installation

• The unit is designed for indoor installation (protected environment) and should not be
exposed to heavy vibrations (exceeding 0.7 g RMS), transformers or similar.

• It is recommended that ventilation or air conditioning is provided in order to keep the


ambient operating temperature around +20°C. The best location is typically in the
instrument room or on the bridge, where good ventilation for the 19-inch rack can be
provided.

• It is recommended that the area around the unit is kept free from dust and static electricity.

• The air inlet and outlet on the unit must not be blocked. The unit has an internal fan and
requires free airflow from the rear and out to the sides of the unit.

• All connections to the unit are at the rear side and available space for cable connections
and service must be provided.

3.3.5 The Video Display Unit

For location of the table mounted Video Display Unit, consider the following:

• The unit is designed for installation in an indoor environment and for operation within the
temperature range. The best location is typically on a table in the instrument room or on
the bridge.

• The unit should be mounted close to the Controller Unit.

• The unit must be located and oriented in such a way that it is easy to see for the vessel
operator.

• It is recommended that the area around the unit is kept free from dust and static electricity.

3.4 Installation procedures

3.4.1 Mechanical installation

The mechanical installation consists of:


• Mounting the Interrogator(s) in a mast or to the rail.
• Mounting the Transponder at a suitable reference point.

Retaining Sealing
ring cap clip
Screw
Gland
terminals
cage

Cable

Gland
Gland nut

ring

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FLAT PART OF THE


SCREW TERMINAL MUST MATCH THE
CORRESPONDING FLAT PART INSIDE THE
CONNECTOR MAIN BODY.

Insert in correct position

Figure 28 Bulgin connector assembly

• The gland nut shown in the figure above should be replaced with the supplied gland nut
with strain relief.

• Insert the cable through the glands and the connector main body before connecting the
wires to the screw terminals.

Note! After fastening the wires in the connector, use Loctite on the screw terminals to
avoid loosening of wires due to vibration.

When inserting the screw terminal part into the connector main body, be sure to rotate the part
until it is locked before installing the retaining ring. The flat part of the screw terminal must
match the corresponding flat part inside the connector main body. A good way to ensure a
correct installation is to rotate the screw terminal body inside the connector main body until it
locks and cannot be rotated more.

It is in addition recommended to vulcanize all outdoor connectors with self vulcanizing tape.

57
RADius 1000 Installation Manual, rev. 9 Appendix D - Bulgin connector assembly

Caution! If the screw terminal body is not correctly mounted in the connector main
body, the assembled connector will not be waterproof.

It is recommended to use self vulcanizing tape on the assembled connector.
