RF VALIDATION

● In order to prevent measurements with faulty antenna and RF cables,


users can perform RF cross-checking with the test devices connected to
Nemo Outdoor or Nemo Invex
● This can be done in several ways using:
– RF offset parameter
● Real time during the measurement
– RF test feature, level check
● Prior starting measurements
● Results can be stored to CSV file
– Scanner & UE level check
● Comparing UE & scanner data real time

© 2015 Page 69
RF VALIDATION USING RF OFFSET

● RF offset parameter
– Nemo Outdoor performs a check
when measurement is started. The
RXL/RSSI value of each measured
channel/carrier is read from each
phone and scanner. The value from
each channel is compared to the
highest value from all devices
– If the measured value is less than X
dB (=RF offset value) below the
highest value, a warning message is
displayed to the user with the channel
number and the device name(s).
– In Remote mode, the offset value X
can be set by Nemo Commander. If a
warning message is triggered by the
field unit, it is shown in Nemo
Commander

© 2015 Page 70
RF VALIDATION USING RF TEST

● RF test
– With the RF test feature, users can
validate all test devices before
starting measurements. The RF test
gives detailed information about the
RF performance of the connected test
devices, UEs and scanners

© 2015 Page 71
RF VALIDATION USING SCANNER AND UE LEVEL CHECK

● With the level check users can


compare field strength values
measured by a scanner and test
UEs. The data is displayed in a table
grid. This helps in detecting possible
antenna and cable defects, but level
check does not trigger any
warnings. The comparison is done
real time during the measurement
and can be viewed also during
playback. Custom windows are
available for GSM, UMTS and LTE

MOUNTING MODULES

● Some guidelines to be followed when mounting


modules to the chassis:
– Nemo Invex II hardware is always pre-configured
based on optimized power consumption, thermal
resistance, and connections between the modules
– UICs are always mounted to the center of the
chassis controlling the HIMs/SHIMs on both sides
– WHY?
● To reduce power consumption per chassis
● To improve (extend measurement time) the
automatic shutdown process in case external
power is lost and backup batteries are used
● To reduce thermal load per chassis
● No crossing cables between the chassis/modules
in the front
– If more than one UICs are used in the same
chassis, it is recommended to mount test devices
(HIMs and SHIMs) on both sides of the UIC
controlling the devices
© 2014 Page 74
STACKING CHASSIS AND MODULES

● Chassis and accessories such as VMK (Vehicle Mounting Kit), MVMK


(Movable Vehicle Mounting Kit), URK (UE Retainer Kit), and RSK (RF-
Splitter Kit) can be easily stacked together with the advanced locking
system

POWER BUDGET CALCULATION
● A typical value of the energy used by the vehicle for operations is about 50-100 amps (A)
● The typical output of the alternators is between 70-220 amps (A)
● A rough estimate is that half of the capacity that the alternator generates is consumed by
the vehicle.
● The formula to calculate the available energy:
– Input data:
● Alternator max current (A)
● Vehicle battery voltage (V). Typically 13.8V
● Cigarette lighter socket fuse (A). Typically 10A but can be up to 20A
● Available extra power from alternator (%)
– Output data:
● Available power for test system (A)
● Available current for test system (A)= Available extra power from alternator (40%) x
Alternator max current (A). 40% x 120A= 48A
● Available power for test system (W)
– Available power for test system (W)= Available current for test system (A) x
vehicle battery voltage (V). 48A x 13.8V=662.4W. Required power of the Nemo
Invex II system must be below 662.4W.

POWER BUDGET
BATTERY LOAD TESTING
● Battery Load Testing
– Battery load testing is an easy and quick test and
always gives exact information about battery
condition and also whether or not the vehicle
alternator is suitable for the Nemo Invex II system
– Please contact your vehicle dealer or other car
electronics shop to perform the load test
– Highly recommended for old vehicles
● Battery voltage is measured in idle and also when the
engine is running with the equal power load (A) that is
required by the Nemo Invex II system
● If the voltage difference is less than 1V the alternator
of the vehicle is not able to provide enough power for
the Nemo Invex II system
● Battery load testers can be borrowed also from Anite
Network Testing

© 2014 Page 92
SELECTING THE COUPLING POINT FOR THE MAIN
POWER CABLE
● Negative Ground
– Always connect the negative ground wire directly to the vehicle chassis as close to the VPS -
Vehicle Power Supply as possible
– Good coupling points are usually seat attachments, seat belt mounting or grounding points which usually
are located in several places in the vehicle
– Make sure that there is no paint in the ground point. Remove the paint by scraping, e.g. with a knife if
necessary.
● Positive +12VDC
– Recommended coupling point is the vehicle main battery, the main +12VDC wire can be
connected to the positive terminal of the battery. Try to keep the wire as short as possible.

– Always use the rubber grommet and silicon mass to protect the wire if inlets are used
– Do not bypass any fuses/circuit breakers!
– Do not use crimp terminals for the main Nemo Invex II power wires due to large currents
– Secure the cables against their own weight, vibration, and heat
– Avoid mounting the main power cables close to the vehicle CAN bus or similar
– Protect the wires against corrosion. Soldering or protective grease can be used to protect the wires
– Wires located in the engine compartment should always be protected with protective grease to avoid
capillary phenomenon. Water, coolant, and fuel can move inside the wires causing electrical issues if
there is a leak.

EXTERNAL ANTENNAS
Band (MHz) 
● Check the condition of all RF cables, and connectors: no
tight curves, no slashes or cuts.
450 66 cm (26”)
● Check that RF connectors are properly connected. Loose
700 42 cm (18”) connections cause unstable measurements or wrong
attenuation of signals. Use the SMA torque wrench to
850 35 cm (14”)
tighten the connectors
900 33 cm (13”) ● Minimum distance between antennas, at least one
1800 17 cm (7”)
wavelength from the corners and roof windows, and two
wavelengths from each other
1900 16 cm (6.3”)
● Individual antennas may have different performance.
2100 14 cm (5.5”) Therefore use only one antenna type with all test devices
2300 13 cm (5.1”) ● When removing antennas after a drive test, DO NOT pull
antennas from the antenna cables. Hold the antenna from
2500 12 cm (4.7”) the base and tilt the antenna away from the cable.
2600 11 cm (4.3”) ● Any unused RF connectors in the RF-splitters must be
3500/ 3700 8 cm (3.2”)
terminated.

GPS (1565- 1575) 19 cm (7.5”)


● RF-splitters shall be used only for test UEs. If RF-splitters
are used also with scanners, separate RF-splitters must be
used.
● Main and MIMO RF cables of the same UE shall not be
connected to the same RF-splitter as it would disable the
MIMO/diversity.

REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION

● In case a USB data modem or handset needs to changed on the field, a


remote desktop connection can be used to install the required drivers and
to troubleshoot in some cases
● With UIC-i7, use KVM for video and keyboard & mouse
● With legacy UIC-200 modules, connect the DVI display cable to UIC-200 to
see the video. Keyboard and mouse can be connected to USB-1 port if
required
● It is recommended to use the Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.2
application. It can be downloaded from:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=21101

MAINTENANCE - FUSES, BATTERY & AIR FILTERS
● Fuses
– All modules include circuit breaker/over current
protection. No changeable fuses except in the Mains
Power Supply - MPS (Fuse 2 pcs, ET1010AH250V)
● Battery
– Chassis includes one Lit-Ion (LiFePO4) battery and this
battery is not replaceable on the field
– The lifespan for the battery is five years, an average of
2000 to 4000 charge/discharge cycles
– The battery information can be seen via the SMM display.
When the battery voltage is below the nominal 13.2V
even when charging, the battery should be changed
● Air Filters
– Nemo Invex II chassis includes built-in air filters on both
sides of the chassis
– For the airflow requirements the air filters should be
checked every three months
– Dirty air filters must be changed as an unsufficient airflow
can overheat the system and cause a controlled
automatic shutdown

BUILDING
CONFIGURATIONS

© 2014
BUILDING CONFIGURATIONS
• Configuration is always customer-specific and requires careful planning to find the optimized
solution
• Configuration is always combination of hardware and software
• What input data is needed?
• Supported systems, bands and UE categories?
• Handsets/ USB modems?
• Any specific features required e.g. forcing features?
• With or without isolation modules?
• Voice quality measurements? PESQ, POLQA or both simultaneously
• Voice call testing? Long and short calls? Test calls per system?
• CSFB or VoLTE?
• What protocols are needed and how many simultaneous connection?
• Note that some limitations applies for the number of simultaneous connections with single CPU (applies
also to Invex when NMR is not used)
• E.g. 6 simultaneous PEVQ-S connections requires 6 x UIC-i7 modules even only 6 UEs are used in the
configuration
• With or without Nemo Media Router
• A major impact on how many devices can be connected to one UIC-i7 module
• With NMR up to 6 UEs
• Without NMR:
• Is depending on UE manufacturer, driver and UE category
• A major impact to the total power consumption and to total cost of the test equipment
