UPB™ Devices Transmitting Through a 3 Phase Repeater
The UTR is used to respond to “Repeater” UPB™ messages received from a UPB™ device from one phase onto every
phase of the powerline. To enable a UPB™ device to transmit through the UTR, use the Edit Device dialog and check
the “Transmit through a powerline repeater” box in the Transmission Options of the Advanced Tab.

LED Indicators
The UTR 3-Phase Repeater has a two-color (red/green) LED indicator for each electrical phase and one to indicate the
status of the UTR. These LED indicators normally appear orange (red and green on simultaneously) and will change
different colors to indicate UPB™ communication status and configuration status as outlined in Table 1 and Table 2
below.

About Your UTR 3-Phase Repeater
Receives a valid UPB™ message
The UTR 3-Phase Repeater (Figure 1) is specifically designed to repeat a UPB™ message onto each 120 V electrical
phase of a standard 3 Phase AC powerline where the phases are separated by 120°. The UTR is capable of receiving a
UPB™ message on one of the AC electrical phases and repeating it onto all three AC electrical phases. The UTR 3Phase Repeater also provides a RS-232 serial interface that can be used to transmit and receive UPB™ messages from
a host computer or home automation controller.

Installation Procedure
1. Turn circuit breaker(s) off for “Phase A”, “Phase B”, and “Phase C” circuits to be connected to the UTR.
2. Connect the UTR 3-Phase Repeater to the following electrical wires (see Figure 2 for reference):
3. Connect the “Neutral” wire to the WHITE wire coming out of the UTR (REQUIRED).
4. Connect the “Phase A” wire to the BLACK wire coming out of the UTR (REQUIRED).
5. Connect the “Phase B” wire to the RED wire coming out of the UTR (OPTIONAL).
6. Connect the “Phase C” wire to the BLUE wire coming out of the UTR (OPTIONAL)
Either Phase B or Phase C may be used when connecting 2 phases of a 3 phase system – as in a commercial, or
multiple dwelling building with 3 phase power).
7. Make sure all wire connections are tight and that no bare copper is exposed.
8. Restore power. Verify that the UTR Status LED indicator is solid orange (see Figure 1 for reference).
9. Configure the UTR for desired operation (as explained in the “Configuring the UTR” section of this manual).

Using the UTR 3 Phase Repeater with UPStart
The UPStart UPB™ Configuration Software is designed to interface to the powerline through the UTR. Once your UTR is
properly connected to the powerline and your computer, you can enable UPStart to use the UTR as a CIM (Computer
Interface Module) by using the UPB™ Interface Device Setup Dialog. Follow the steps described below to enable
UPStart to use your UTR as a powerline interface:
Step 1: Specify the UPB™ Interface and Communications Port
Select the ToolsÆUPB™ Interface DeviceÆSelect menu item to open the UPB™ Interface Device Setup Dialog. In
the UPB™ Interface Setup dialog specify the “3-Phase Powerline Interface” and the communications port (i.e. Comm 1,
Comm 2) to which your UTR is connected.
Step 2: Establish UTR Communications Interface
Press the Connect button in UPStart to test the communication between UPStart and the UTR. If communications is
operational then UPStart will display information about the UTR interface including the UTR firmware version.
Step 3: Repeater Transmission Count
The Repeater Transmission Count may be modified so that the UTR repeats a UPB™ packet 1, 2, 3, or 4 times. The
default Repeater Transmission count is 2. The UPB™ Repeater Transmission Count may be modified by selecting the
Settings button in the UPB™ Interface Device Setup Dialog of UPStart once communication with the UTR has been
established (Step 2 above).
Step 4: Set the UPB™ Network(s) for the repeat function
The default setting for the UTR is to respond to every “Repeater” message it receives. The UTR may be configured to
respond to “Repeater” messages only from specified UPB™ Networks. One to eight UPB™ Networks may be specified.
Select the Settings button in the UPB™ Interface Device Setup Dialog of UPStart once communication with the UTR has
been established (Step 2 above). Click on the check box to enter a UPB™ Network ID for which the repeat function is
desired. This is useful to reduce possible interference and unwanted device control in multiple dwelling or office
buildings.

Step 5: Close the UPB™ Interface Setup Dialog
Close the UPB™ Interface Setup dialog by pressing the OK button.
Using Your UTR 3-Phase Repeater
The UTR 3-Phase Repeater is designed to work in a UPB™ lighting system consisting of Transceiver Switches/Dimmers
and/or other UPB™ devices. The UTR 3-Phase Repeater can be used to repeat UPB™ messages received from one of
these devices onto every phase of the powerline. UPB™ devices must be configured in UPStart to send Repeater
messages. Open the Edit Device dialog and check the “Transmit through a powerline repeater” box in the
Transmission Options of the Advanced Tab. Once the devices are configured they transmit Repeater messages that
the UTR transmits on all phases.
The UTR may be used as a Computer Interface Module (CIM) to configure all UPB devices or the plug-in CIM (UMCDB9-W) can be used to configure devices one phase at a time. The plug-in CIM will only communicate to devices on the
same phase in a 3 phase system.
452-0061-0001 Rev. A 061214
Communication Modes
The UTR has two operating modes: MESSAGE mode and PULSE mode. The last-used operational mode is retained
during power interruption. UPStart software automatically sets the interface to PULSE mode operation, but most
controllers require MESSAGE mode. To restore MESSAGE mode operation…
1.
Place the UTR in SETUP mode by pressing the Program Button (located just left of the indicator) five times
rapidly. The indicator will continuously blink GREEN.
2.
Reset to MESSAGE mode by pressing the Program Button ten times. The indicator will continuously blink
RED.
3.
Press the Program Button once to exit SETUP mode.
Use a standard serial cable with a male DB9 connector for the UTR end (no cable is provided; the UTR uses the same
cable as the one included with the UMC-DB9-W).
