Drop Ceiling Mount
UTAM Registration &
Depending on the location chosen for mounting the Control Station, you'll
need to consider various mounting hardware alternatives to complement the
standard trunnion. These might include the choices shown here.
Plaster Ceiling – 4 molly bolts
Suspended Ceiling – 2 grid clips
Horizontal I-beam – 2 beam clamps
Vertical I-beam – 2 beam clamps
Wall – 2 molly bolts
If you are mounting the Control Station in an ofﬁce space, you may encounter
a drop ceiling. Talk over the installation, and especially the need for any
exposed wiring, with the customer. If mounted on a drop ceiling, UL1459
requires that the entire system be capable of supporting five (5) times the
weight of the Control Station. Check with the facility to ensure that the grid is
rated to 25 pounds minimum. Also review any local earthquake regulations
before attempting a ceiling mount.
If the cabling needs to run in the space above the ceiling grid, then you need
to budget for slightly more expensive plenum-rated cable. If aesthetics dictate
mounting the Control Station above the tile, then check the tile to be sure it is
not foil backed. Foil backed tile will destroy your propagation calculations. A
Remote Mount Antenna installed below the tile may be considered in this sce-
nario as well.
If the Control Station is mounted in a difﬁcult location to access or your cus-
tomer anticipates adding or modifying handsets and system design in the
future, you may want to consider adding the Control Station programming
cable for reprogramming needs. All cabling must comply with the National
Electric Code (NEC) as well as the state, city, county and local building and ﬁre
code requirements. You can use EIA/TIA-568 as a beginning point.
UTAM requires that every installed Telario System is registered. To ensure this
is done, the Control Station has a built in mobility feature intended to satisfy
the UTAM requirement that a previously installed system shall not be moved
to a different location without being re-registered by an authorized Motorola
Due to this requirement, just prior to or just after the Control Station is actually
installed, the Telario Management Tool (TMT) Software must be used to indi-
cate that a particular Control Station has in fact been registered. Refer to
UTAM section starting on page 2 for instructions on this process.
Note the following scenarios that are impacted by the UTAM Mobility Feature:
If the power and phone line 1 are disconnected for more than 4 hours, the
Control Station is considered "un-installed" for the intent of moving it and
will be non-functional when re-connected, until it is re-registered with the
Telario Management Tool.
If there is a loss of power, but phone line 1 remains connected, for up to
five days the Control Station will still be functional when power is
If the phone line 1 connection is lost, but power is not interrupted, the Con-
trol Station will still be functional when phone line 1 is reconnected.
•Using a battery backup will allow the Control Station to be functional during
the loss of primary power for up to eight hours (see Table 1, page 14). If
