Safety Notices
Safety Precautions:
YOU MUST READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE INSTALLING THE
DEVICE:
• This antenna’s grounding system must be installed according to Article 810-15, 810-20, 810-21 of the National Electric Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1993. If you have any questions or doubts about your antenna grounding system, contact a local licensed
electrician.
• Never attach the Grounding Wire while the device is powered.
• If the ground is to be attached to an existing electrical circuit, turn off the circuit before attaching the wire.
• Use the Tranzeo POE only with approved Tranzeo models.
• Never install Radio Equipment, surge suppressors, or lightning protection during a storm.
A BRIEF WORD ON LIGHTNING PROTECTION
The key to a Lightning Protection is providing a harmless route for lightning to reach ground. The system should not be designed to
attract lightning, nor can it repel lightning. National, State and local codes are designed to protect life, limb and property, and must always
be obeyed.
When in doubt, consult local and national electrical codes or contact an electrician or professional trained in the design of
grounding systems.

2-4 Hardware Installations
Take the following steps to set up your TR-CPE200.
Site Selection: Before installation, determine the TR-CPE200 Units location. Proper placement of the unit is
critical to ensure optimum radio range and performance. You should perform a Site Survey to choose a proper
placement for your unit. Place your unit within the line of sight of the Access Point. Obstructions may impede
performance of the unit.
Tools Required to Install
•
•
•
•
•
One 3/8 wrench
One 3/4 wrench
One RJ-45 Crimper
A suitable length of Cat 5 Cable to bring the signal from the unit to the Power over Ethernet Adaptor
2 RJ-45 Jacks
Before installing, you must determine if you will be installing the unit in a horizontal or vertical orientation.
The TR-CPE200 model can be mounted in either orientation. The Ethernet boot should always be placed so
that the cable runs toward the ground for maximum environmental protection.

Connecting the Ethernet Cable
Step 1
Place the Ethernet Boot Cover over the end of your Cat 5 Cable. Attach
the sticky side of the gasket to the underside of the Ethernet Boot.
Step 2
Attach Ethernet Cable Lock on side of the Ethernet Boot.
This is easiest to do before you attach the RJ-45 Jack.
Step 3
Tighten using a ¾” wrench or socket. Tighten until the
Cable Lock touches the Boot as shown in Step 3.
USE HAND TOOLS ONLY. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN
as you may damage the environment seal.

Step 4
Attach optional tightening bracket on top of the Ethernet
Boot. This is easiest to do before you attach the CAT 5
cable. The Gasket must be attached to the Boot so that it
sits between the radio and the boot.
Step 5
Insert the Cat 5 Cable and tighten the Boot Cover. Be sure
to pull enough cable through to reach the RJ-45 connector
with an RJ-45 jack attached. Attach tightening bracket on
top of the Ethernet Boot. This is easiest to do before you
attach the CAT 5 cable. The Gasket must be attached to the
Boot so that it sits between the radio and the boot.
Hand tighten only. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as you may
damage the environment seal.
Step 6
Place the Ethernet boot over the 4 Screw Posts. The screws should just
barely clear the tightening bracket. Apply 4 Ket nuts to the screw posts
and tighten until the gasket makes full contact with the Ethernet boot.
Do not over tighten.

compromise the gasket seal. Over tightening is not covered
by warranty.

Connect the Power Cable
Connect the power adapter to the power socket on
the Power over Ethernet Adaptor, and plug the
other end of the power into an electrical outlet. Plug
the RJ-45 Cable from the unit into the POE. The
Station Adaptor will be powered on and the power
indicator on the top panel will turn on.
NOTE: ONLY use the power adapter supplied with
the Access Point. Otherwise, the product may be
damaged.
This unit must be grounded. Connect the green
Grounding cable to a known good earth ground, as
outlined in the National Electrical Code.

APPENDIX A: LIGHTING INFORMATION
What is a proper Ground?
This antenna must be grounded to a proper Earth Ground.
According to the The National Electrical Code Sections 810-15s and 810-21, the grounding
conductor shall be connected to the NEAREST accessible locations of the following:
a) The building / structure grounding electrode
b) The grounded interior metal water piping system
c) the power service accessible means external to enclosure
d) the metallic power service raceway
e) the service equipment enclosure
f) The grounding electrode conductor
The important thing is to connect to ground at the nearest point.
Why is coiling the LMR or CAT5 bad?
The myth is that lighting follows the path of least resistance. It actually follows the path of least impedance.
Coiling cables creates an air-wound transformer, which lowers the impedance. This means you are in fact
making your radios a more appealing target for surges.
What standard does Tranzeo Wireless equipment meet?
This radio exceeds International Standard IEC 61000-4-5 when properly grounded. For a copy of the full
testing report, see Report Number TRL090904 - Tranzeo Surge Protection board located on the Tranzeo
website.
Is lightning damaged covered by the Warranty?
No. Lightning is not covered by the warranty. If you follow the instructions, you chances of lightning damage
are greatly reduced, but nothing can protect a radio from a direct lightning strike.

Where to Ground the device
This radio must be grounded at the Pole AND at the POE. This is because the radio is between the Exterior
Antenna and the POE ground. See the examples below
Ungrounded Radio
An ungrounded radio causes the surge to pass
through the radio. In this case the radio most
likely will be damaged.

Ungrounded POE
Mounting Pole
In this case, the surge will be picked up
by the Cat 5 cable, and since the POE
is not grounded, the route for the surge
is through the radio to the antenna, and
out through the building.

Best Practices
1) Allow try to run the Cat5 and LMR inside of the mounting pole wherever possible. This helps to
insulate the cable from any air surges.
Building
Cat 5 Cable
2) Keep all runs as straight as possible. Never put a loop into the cables.
3) Test all grounds to ensure that you are using a proper Ground. If using a electrical socket for Ground,
use a socket tester, such as Radio Shack 22-141
4) Buy a copy of the National Electrical Code Guide and follow it.
5) If you are in doubt about the grounding at the location, drive your own rod and bond it to the house
ground. At least you will know that one Rod is correct in the system.
