0 Introduction
0.1 General
This manual describes the electrical, mechanical and environmental
specifications of the FALCOM device ANT-010. It contains information
about purpose and application area of the device.
The ANT-010 represents a dual band PCS 850/1900 antenna with a
magnetic base integrated. For optional performance the antenna must be
placed on the metal surface, so that a ground plane is formed. The antenna is
delivered with 3 m cable set with FME-male connector. The ANT-010 can
be used with each type of GSM equipment that provides the proper
electrical and mechanical antenna interfaces. A range of cable adapters as an
additional accessory is provided by FALCOM too.
Users are advised to quickly proceed to the “Security” chapter and read
the hints carefully.

IMPORTANT FOR THE EFFICIENT AND SAFE OPERATION OF
THIS ANTENNA. READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE USE !
1.1 GENERAL
The ANT-010 utilises the GSM standard for cellular technology. GSM is a
newer radio frequency (« RF ») technology than the current FM technology
that has been used for radio communications for decades. The GSM
standard has been established for use in the European community and
elsewhere.
1.1.1 EXPOSURE TO RF ENERGY
There has been some public concern about possible health effects of using
GSM or GSM/GPS equipment. Although research on health effects from RF
energy has focused for many years on the current RF technology, scientists
have begun research regarding newer radio technologies, such as GSM.
After existing research had been reviewed, and after compliance to all
applicable safety standards had been tested, it has been concluded that the
product is fit for use.
If you are concerned about exposure to RF energy there are things you can
do to minimise exposure. Obviously, limiting the duration of your calls will
reduce your exposure to RF energy. In addition, you can reduce RF
exposure by operating your cellular equipment efficiently by following the
below guidelines.
1.1.2 EFFICIENT OPERATION
For your equipment to operate at the lowest power level, consistent with
satisfactory call quality:
Extend the antenna cable as long as possible verify.
Do not hold the antenna when it is « IN USE ». Holding the antenna affects
call quality and may cause the modem to operate at a higher power level
than needed.
1.1.3 ANTENNA CARE
Do not use a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact
with the skin, a minor burn may result. Replace a damaged antenna
immediately.
1.1.4 DRIVING
Do not install on the front windshields you can impair the sight of the
driver.

1.1.5 ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Most electronic devices, for example in hospitals and motor vehicles are
shielded from RF energy. However RF energy may affect some
malfunctioning or improperly shielded electronic equipment.
1.1.6 VEHICLE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
Check your vehicle manufacturer’s representative to determine if any on
board electronic equipment is adequately shielded from RF energy.
1.1.7 MEDICAL ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical devices (such as
pacemakers, hearing aids, etc...) to determine if they are adequately shielded
from external RF energy.
Do not use the antenna or turn your connected equipment OFF in health care
facilities when any regulations posted in the area instruct you to do so.
Hospitals or health care facilities may be using RF monitoring equipment.
1.1.8 AIRCRAFT
Do not use the antenna before boarding any aircraft.
Use it on the ground only with crew permission.
Do not use in the air.
To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) regulations require you to have permission from a
crew member to use the antenna while the plane is on the ground. To
prevent interference with cellular systems, local RF regulations prohibit
using your device whilst airborne.
1.1.9 CHILDREN
Do not allow children to play with your antenna. It is not a toy. Children
could hurt themselves or others (by poking themselves or others in the eye
with the antenna, for example). Children could damage the antenna.
1.1.10 BLASTING AREAS
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your unit OFF when in a
« blasting area » or in areas posted : « turn off two-way radio ».
Construction crew often use remote control RF devices to set off explosives.
1.1.11 NON-IONISING RADIATION
As with other mobile radio transmitting equipment, users are advised that
for satisfactory operation and for the safety of personnel, it is recommended
that no part of the human body be allowed to come too close to the antenna
during operation of the equipment.
The antenna shall be mounted in such a position that no part of the human
body will normally rest close to any part of the antenna.

2 Installation instructions
Determine the mounting location for the ANT-010 antenna. The antenna
should be mounted in a horizontal position. The antenna is designed for
mounting on a sheet-metal structure.
The bottom side of the ANT-010 has a magnetic base, which should be
attached only to a metal sheet.
Extend the antenna cable and connect the FME-male connector of the
antenna to the FME-female antenna interface of the GSM equipment.
Hints
Proper functionality requires on-metal-mounting
ANT-010 is water resistant.
