RF Interface MAC address

This parameter is only applicable when the radio is part of a Protected Station.

This RF Interface MAC address is used to define the MAC address of the Protection Switch. This address is entered in the factory. Both Protected Station radios read and use this MAC address.

This MAC address entry will only be used by the software if it detects that the factory MAC address set in the internal EPROM of the protected switch is corrupted for some reason, otherwise the software will ignore the MAC address entered by the user.

The RF interface MAC address is used for registration process only. For example, in a remote Protected Station, both radios share the same RF MAC address and a single entry of the remote Protected Station will be presented in network table (Network Status > Network Table).

The Protection Switch RF Interface MAC address is shown on the Protection Switch label:

In-Service Commissioning | 327

8.In-Service Commissioning

Before You Start

When you have finished installing the hardware, RF and the traffic interface cabling, the system is ready to be commissioned. Commissioning the radio is a simple process and consists of:

1.Powering up the radios.

2.Configuring all radios in the network using SuperVisor.

3.Aligning the antennas.

4.Testing that the links are operating correctly.

5.Connecting up the client or user interfaces.

What You Will Need

Appropriately qualified commissioning staff at both ends of each link.

Safety equipment appropriate for the antenna location at both ends of each link.

Communication equipment, that is, mobile phones or two-way radios.

SuperVisor software running on an appropriate laptop, computer, or workstation at the base station radio.

Tools to facilitate loosening and re-tightening the antenna pan and tilt adjusters.

Predicted receiver input levels and fade margin figures from the radio link budget.

Aprisa SR+ User Manual 1.6.0 PO

328 | In-Service Commissioning

Antenna Alignment

A base station omni-directional collinear antenna has a vertical polarization. The remote station yagi antennas must also have vertical polarization.

Aligning the Antennas

Align the remote station yagi antennas by making small adjustments while monitoring the RSSI. The Aprisa SR+ has a Test Mode which presents a real time visual display of the RSSI on the front panel LEDs. This can be used to adjust the antenna for optimum signal strength (see ‘Test Mode’ on page 44).

Note: Low gain antennas need less adjustment in elevation as they are simply aimed at the horizon. They should always be panned horizontally to find the peak signal.

1.Press and hold the TEST button on the radio LED panel until all the LEDs flash green (about 3 - 5 seconds).

Note: The time for the LEDs to display the RSSI result is variable, depending on the network traffic, and can be up to 5 seconds. Small antenna adjustments should be made and then wait for the display to refresh.

The RSSI poll refresh rate can be set with the SuperVisor command ‘Transmit Period’ (see ‘Maintenance > Test Mode’ on page 210).

2.Move the antenna through a complete sweep horizontally (pan). Note down the RSSI reading for all the peaks in RSSI that you discover in the pan.

3.Move the antenna to the position corresponding to the maximum RSSI value obtained during the pan. Move the antenna horizontally slightly to each side of this maximum to find the two points where the RSSI drops slightly.

4.Move the antenna halfway between these two points and tighten the clamp.

5.If the antenna has an elevation adjustment, move the antenna through a complete sweep (tilt) vertically. Note down the RSSI reading for all the peaks in RSSI that you discover in the tilt.

6.Move the antenna to the position corresponding to the maximum RSSI value obtained during the tilt. Move the antenna slightly up and then down from the maximum to find the two points where the RSSI drops slightly.

7.Move the antenna halfway between these two points and tighten the clamp.

8.Recheck the pan (steps 2-4) and tighten all the clamps firmly.

9.To exit Test Mode, press and hold the TEST button until all the LEDs flash red (about 3 – 5 seconds).

Part Description

APSQ-R400-SSC-HD-22-ENAA

4RF SR+, PS, 400-470 MHz, SSC, Half Duplex, 2E2S, EN, STD

The Aprisa SR+ Protected Station is comprised of an Aprisa SR+ Protection Switch and two standard Aprisa SR+ radios mounted in a 2U rack mounting chassis.

All interfaces (RF, data, etc.) are continually monitored on both the active and standby radio to ensure correct operation. The standby radio can be replaced without impacting traffic flow on the active radio.

The Aprisa SR+ radios can be any of the currently available Aprisa SR+ radio frequency bands, channel sizes or interface port options.

The Aprisa SR+ Protected Station can operate as a base station, repeater station or remote station. The protection behaviour and switching criteria between the active and standby radios is identical for the three configurations.

By default, the Aprisa SR+ Protected Station is configured with the left hand radio (A) designated as the primary radio and the right hand radio (B) designated as the secondary radio.

Each radio is configured with its own unique IP and MAC address and the address of the partner radio.

On power-up, the primary radio will assume the active role and the secondary radio will assume the standby role. If, for some reason, only one radio is powered on it will automatically assume the active role.

Both the Aprisa SR+ Protected Station primary radio and secondary radio must be operating on the same software version.
