5.4. Connecting a Cable between AP-RFU and AP-IFU
5.4.1. AP-RFU (Omni Antenna)
Step1 Use the coaxial cable to connect the AP-RFU and the AP-IFU. (Figure 5-17)
Step2 Waterproof the connection with self-bonding tape or cold-shrinkable tube.
Figure 5-17 Connecting the Cable to the AP-RFU (Omni Antenna)
・ +16VDC to be supplied to the AP-RFU is superimposed on the signals in the IF cable.
Turn off the power to the AP-IFU when installing or removing the IF cable. Otherwise, the
unit may be damaged.
・ Cover the cable connection with a cold-shrinkable sleeve to make it waterproof.
Otherwise, water may get in the connection.
・ The curvature radius of the connection cable between the RFU and IFU should be 6 times
or more the outer diameter of the cable.
・ When securing the connection cable between the RFU and IFU, be careful so the cable is
