Model # 276215 FCC ID: PWO276215 IC: 4726A-276215

The term “IC” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were met .

How it Works

Wilson Electronics Signal Boosters are bi-directional devices that deliver service levels consistent with what would be expected in areas of high cell network coverage . They amplify a weak or shadowed signal in mobile, marine and in-building applications . When using a Wilson Electronics

Signal Booster in conjunction with Wilson Electronics antennas, the

Outside Antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the cable to the Signal Booster . The signal is then amplified and retransmitted through the Inside Antenna into the room . Cell phones and cellular data cards in that area then communicate with the improved signal . When a cell phone or cellular device transmits, the signal is received by the Inside Antenna, amplified by the Signal Booster and broadcasted back to the cell tower through the Outside Antenna .

The In-Line Signal Booster (806215) is designed to offset cable and splitter/tap loss for in-building installations . It should be used on the Inside

Antenna side of a Wilson Electronics In-Building Signal Booster such as the AG Pro 75 .

Reasons for Using a In-Line Signal Booster with

In-Building Installations

Covering multiple rooms or even floors of a building can be challenging as each is a different size and shape . Balancing the signal coverage can require multiple attenuators, cables, taps and splitters . All of these can decrease your system gain and coverage . Reasons to install an In-Line

Signal Booster include:

1 . Cable loss – Long runs of cable from the Inside Antenna to the main

Signal Booster may have significant loss or require expensive low-loss cable .

2 . Splitter loss – When multiple rooms must be evenly covered, a splitter evenly divides the signal for separate Inside Antennas . Each division reduces system gain and inside coverage area .

3 . Tap loss – Taps pass the signal with low attenuation out one port and pass the signal with high attenuation port continues on to another location possibly with more splitters and taps downstream . The attenuation port typically runs directly to an Inside Antenna .

4 . Increased system dynamic range – A user who gets too near an Inside

Antenna can lower the gain and coverage area for all other users . The

In-Line Signal Booster adds dynamic range to the in-building installation and reduces use of the main Signal Booster automatic gain control .

The In-Line Signal Booster overcomes the losses associated with large in-building installations . The Signal Booster recovers inside coverage area that is normally lost due to cable, splitter and tap loss . By installing the

Signal Booster near an Inside Antenna, uplink noise figure is minimized and downlink power is maximized . Additionally, the In-Line Signal Booster enhances performance of the main Signal Booster by increasing the system gain and input signal dynamic range . The variable gain knobs on the In-Line allow for simple, quick signal level balancing and installation .

Installing a Wilson Electronics In-Line

Signal Booster

Select a location to install the In-Line Signal Booster that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight, moisture and has proper ventilation . Do not place the Signal Booster in an air-tight enclosure . Recommended installation locations for In-Line Signal Booster are:

• On a shelf

• In a closet

• Near a power outlet

• Near the Inside Antenna

• Where there is more than 5dB loss between

In-Building Signal Booster and Inside Antenna

Note: It is important to have adequate air ventilation. Maintain at least 6 inches of clearance from surrounding objects.

The In-Line should be placed where it can make up for installation gain loss due to cable, taps or splitters . Optimal location is near or directly connected to the Inside Antenna .

Note: For distances of 20 feet or more, use Wilson low loss cable to prevent significant signal loss or contact Wilson Electronics Technical

Support Team for assistance: 866-294-1660.

Note: Be careful when plugging the connector in so as not to damage the center pins on the connectors.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

It is very important to power your Signal Booster using a surge protected AC Power Strip with at least a

1000 Joule rating.

Failure to do this will void your warranty in the power surge or lightning strike .

Powering up a Wilson Electronics In-Line

Signal Booster

1 . Never point the front of a Directional Outside Antenna toward the

Inside Antenna . See Figures 1 & 2 on page 8 .

2 . Run the antenna cable from the In-Building “Inside Antenna” connector to the In-Line Signal Booster “Outside Antenna” connector and attach to both connectors . Run the Inside Antenna cable to the In-Line Signal

Booster and attach it to the connector labeled “Inside Antenna” on the

In-Line Signal Booster . For more information on running cable (see page

3 & 4) .

3 . Plug the 6-volt power supply into the Signal Booster input marked “6V

DC” (carefully, to avoid damaging the center pin) and then into a surge protected AC Power Strip with at least a

1000 Joule rating.

4 . If the Signal Booster does not have a green light(s), please see pages

9 & 10 .

5 . If you know that only one frequency band (800 or 1900) is available in your coverage area (or going to be used), reduce the gain control on the frequency band that is NOT in use to the lowest setting . This will reduce the power consumption of the Signal Booster .

6 . Using multiple Signal Boosters other than the In-Line in one installation could cause interference to the cell tower .

Understanding the Signal Booster Lights and

Troubleshooting

During installation mode the Signal Booster is resetting itself very quickly to aid the installer . The Signal Booster is equipped with two indicator lights, one for the 800 MHz band and the other for the 1900 MHz band . For the first 15 minutes that the Signal Booster is plugged in, it is programed for a test and alignment period . During this time, both lights will do one of the following 3 things:

Note: If after the initial 15 minutes you are not done with the installation, the Signal Booster can be reset and enter installation mode again by disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply from the Signal Booster.

1. BLINkING GREEN

If the Signal Booster is blinking green, the Signal Booster is operating properly . If you are happy with the coverage area in your building, then you are done . Blinking will stop after the 15 minute installation period .

2. SOLID RED

If either of the two lights on the Signal Booster are solid red, this indicates that the Signal Booster has shut down on that frequency to prevent an oscillation (feedback) . First, make sure that all the connections are tight . Then reduce the gain of the Signal Booster in small increments by rotating the gain control, counter clockwise, waiting 5 seconds between each adjustment for the Signal Booster to reset . Continue this adjustment until the light turns blinking or solid green . When you are turning down the gain, you are reducing the inside coverage area . If the amount of coverage area is sufficient for your needs and the light is green the installation is complete . If the coverage area is not large enough, it is necessary to increase the separation distance of the antennas by moving them horizontally or vertically farther apart, or both . Then increase the gain until the red light comes on, and then slightly keep decreasing the gain until the green or blinking green light appears . If after separating the antennas your coverage area is still too small, contact Wilson Electronics Technical Support Team for assistance:

866-294-1660 .

If your installation takes longer than 15 minutes, it is possible to reenter the installation mode by disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply from the Signal Booster .

3. SOLID GREEN

The indicator lights on the Signal Booster will be a solid green after the first 15 minute installation period, if the unit is powered up and working properly .

Notes:

1 . Nominal gain is the maximum gain at any frequency in the passband .

2 . Nominal bandwidth is the difference between two frequencies that are adjacent to the passband where the amplification is 20 dB lower than the passband

amplification . One of the frequencies is lower than the passband and the other is higher .

3 . The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation . For situations when multiple carrier signals are present, the rating

would have to be reduced by 3 .5 dB, especially where the output signal is re-radiated and can cause interference to adjacent band users . This power

reduction is to be by means of input power or gain reduction and not by an attenuator at the output of the device .

4 . The maximum power for 2 or more simultaneous signals will be reduced by 6 dB every time the number of signals is doubled .
