WARNING
It is very important to disconnect the
ATC200-Lite controller from the system
after each use to prevent permanent
damage to the system.
Electric Static Discharge (ESD) can damage or
destroy the hardware equipment used for the
ATC200-Lite Teletilt® System. ESD can occur during handling of equipment without the user feeling
a shock. The following precautions should be taken
to prevent ESD.
1. Wear an ESD wrist strap (Figure 1) and/or
use a test lead (ground), such as a single-wire
conductor with a series resistance of 1 megohm
equipped with alligator clips on each end. In
using a ground, one end of the alligator clip is
connected to a grounded equipment frame and
the other end of the alligator clip is touched with
a bare hand.
2. Other precautions the user may take to reduce
the risk of ESD are:
Figure 1. ESD Wrist Strap.
• avoid wearing clothing that conducts a lot of static electricity, such as wool.
• remove all jewelry.
• avoid handling equipment during an electrical storm.
3. Before opening a package containing an electrostatic unit or an electrostatic sensitive
device/assembly, clip the free end of a test lead to the package. Leave the other end connected to the equipment frame or other ESD ground. This will cause any static electricity
which may have built up on the package to discharge. Keep the unit package grounded
during removal or placement of equipment in the package.
4. Minimize handling of ESDS (Electric Static Discharge Sensitive) equipment. Keep replacement equipment in the electrostatic-free packaging (with ground established between packaging and equipment frame) until needed. Repairable ESD equipment should be placed
in the electrostatic-free packaging (with ground connecting package to equipment frame)
upon removal from ATC200-Lite system. ESD equipment should only be transported and
stored in ESD protective packaging.

ATC200-Lite Teletilt® Remote Control Downtilt System
5. Always avoid unnecessary movement of body, such as scuffing feet across flooring, when
handling ESDS equipment. Such movement will generate additional charges of static
electricity.
6. When removing or replacing ESDS equipment, hold the device or assembly through the
electrostatic-free wrap, where possible. If this is not possible, lift the device or assembly
by its body only. Do not touch component leads, connector pins, or any other electrical
connections or paths, even though they are covered by conformal coating.
7. Do not allow ESDS equipment to come in contact with clothing or other ungrounded
materials that may have an electrostatic charge. Charges on nonconductive material are
not equal. For instance, a plastic storage bag may have a - 10,000 volt potential 1/2 inch
from a +15,000 volt potential with many such charges all over the bag. Do not hand ESD
equipment to another person until it is safely packaged for protection for ESD.
8. When moving ESDS equipment, always touch the surface on which it rests with bare skin
for at least one second before lifting. Before setting it on any surface, touch the surface
with your free hand for at least one second. Contact with the bare skin provides a safe
discharge path for charges accumulated while you are moving around.
9. While servicing equipment containing ESD devices, do not handle or touch materials such
as plastic, vinyl, synthetic textiles, polished wood, fiberglass, or similar items that can
generate static charges; unless you repeat the grounding process with the bare hands
after contacting these materials.
10.Where possible, avoid repairs that require soldering at the equipment level. Soldering
irons must have heater/tips assemblies that are grounded to an electrical ground. Do not
use standard plastic solder suckers (special antistatic solder suckers are commercially
available).
11.Ground the leads of test equipment momentarily before you energize the test equipment
and before you probe ESD devices or assemblies.
12.Work benches used for setting ESDS equipment should have ESD protective work surfaces. These work benches should also have personnel ground straps. These straps
prevent discharge of static electricity from personnel handling ESDS items on the work
bench surface. The work bench surface should be connected to ground through a ground
cable. The resistance in the bench top ground cable should be located at or near the point
of contact with the top of the work bench. The resistance should be high enough to limit
any leakage current to 5 milliamperes or less. This takes into consideration the highest
voltage source within reach of grounded people and all the parallel resistances to ground,
such as wrist ground straps, table tops, and conductive flooring.

Section 1
Controller Setup
1.1 System Description
The ATC200-Lite series control system consists of an antenna system controller, actuators
attached to the antennas (one for each variable tilt adjuster on an antenna), junction boxes/
splitters to daisy chain up to 32 actuators to a controller, and control cable assemblies. See
Section 10 for details on component part numbers and ordering information. Follow the procedures described in the installation bulletins included with each component for successful
installation for each device.
It is recommended that each actuator be connected to the controller while on the ground and
tested for proper function. The serial number for each actuator, the antenna type the actuator
will be installed on, and the location the antenna will be positioned at on the tower site should
be recorded prior to installation on the tower. This will assist in configuring the controller to
manage tilt operations successfully for each actuator. A site configuration worksheet is provided
with this manual to record the antenna/actuator information (see Appendix A).
1.2 ATC200-Lite Series Controller Communication
The ATC200-Lite controller serves as an interface between a local PC/laptop and the ATM200
RET actuator/antenna system. This controller provides signal level conversion from RS-232
(used on a PC) to RS-485 (used in ATM200-001 actuators), as well as power to the ATM200001 actuators that are attached to the antennas. LEDs, on the front panel of the controller,
indicate power and data communication. The power LEDs, located nearest to the dc IN port,
display green lights when power is supplied to the RET system. The data LED, located nearest
to the RS-232 serial port, displays a green light when sending data to the RET system usually
followed by an immediate red light when receiving data from the RET system.
1.3 ATC200-Lite Series Controller Setup
1. Connect the supplied 9-Pin RS-232 cable between the controller’s RS-232 serial port and
an available RS-232 serial port on the PC or laptop. See Figures 1-1.
Note that the software program used to operate this controller is set at serial port 1 (COM1)
as its default. If serial port 1 is unavailable, any functional serial port in the range of
1-8, not currently in use on the PC, is acceptable. A USB to RS-232 serial adapter cable
can be used to connect the ATC200-Lite controller to a PC/laptop. Note that after installing
the driver for the adapter, it may be necessary to change the ‘Port Mapping’ setting from
‘Geographic’ to ‘Dynamic’ to clear a certain conflict that may occur with the COM port.

2. Connect the supplied 24Vdc or 12Vdc power converter to the dc IN port on the controller
(Figure 1-1). IMPORTANT NOTE: The power converter used will affect both the 12Vdc
and 24Vdc connector pins. For example, if a 24Vdc power converter is used, both
the 12Vdc and the 24Vdc connector pins will transmit 24Vdc power.
3. Connect the desired length RET control cable between the controller’s 8-Pin DIN connector
(RS-485 RET port, located on the back panel) and the first component in the RET system.
See Figures 1-1 and 1-2 and Section 10 for a brief description of system components.

3.3 Beginning Program Operation
After program startup and serial port selection, note the text displayed at the bottom
of the screen in the ‘Command Status/Response’ window (Figure 3-3). This window is
used to display the current status of the program, the progress of various commands
that have been initiated by the user, and the final results of commands, such as success
or failure messages.
3.4 Antenna Definition File Selection
A single antenna definition file is placed in the ‘C:\Program Files\Andrew Corporation\ATC200
Lite’ directory of the PC during program installation. This file is automatically searched for
and loaded during program startup.
The antenna definition file provides a list of all the Andrew base station antennas compatible
with the ATC200-Lite control system. The program automatically selects and uses the latest
version antenna definition file. If a different antenna definition file is desired for use, place
the desired antenna definition file in the ‘C:\Program Files\Andrew Corporation\ ATC200 Lite’
directory and restart the program to make it available for selection. Note that the program only
recognizes antenna definition files that were present in the directory noted above at the time
of program startup. If a new file is placed in this directory, the program must be restarted for
the new file to be recognized and visible in the drop down list shown in Figure 3-9.
1. To select a different antenna definition file, go to ‘Tools, Antenna Files . . .’ from the main
menu at the top of the screen (Figures 3-8).
2. Click on the drop down list arrow to select the desired antenna definition file from
the list (Figure 3-9).
3. Click ‘Load File’ to load the selected antenna definition file for use (Figure 3-9). Confirmation
that the file was loaded will be displayed in the ‘Command Status/Response’ window.

Section 4
Device Discovery and Addressing
4.1 Device Search
After an antenna definition file has been loaded, automatically during program installation or
manually by the user (see Section 3), a device search can be activated. A device search is
the process by which the program performs an AISG compliant device scan to discover all
AISG devices currently attached to the ATC200-Lite controller’s RS-485 bus. At this point in
program startup, a device search is the only allowed option. A device search is required before
proceeding, so that the program can determine which devices are present on the tower and
retrieve their current configuration parameters (also see Bulletin 639512 for a quick device
setup and operations guide). It is important to note that this feature automatically scans and
sets each device address to ‘0’ and then readdresses them in the order they respond to the
controller during the device search. Generally, the devices respond in sequential order of
their serial number. This feature helps reduce possible conflict issues that could arise during
operation later.
1. From the program startup screen, click ‘Find Devices’ to start the device search (Figure
4-1).
Click ‘Find Devices’.
Program automatically searches for the latest Antenna Definition file and loads
it to the program if it has not been loaded from an earlier startup session.

2. The ‘Auto Discovery’ bar (located at the top of the screen) and the Command Status/Response window (located at the bottom of the screen) will show the status on the search’s
progress (Figure 4-2). As each device is found during the search, the Command Status/
Response window will show the status of how many devices have been found .
NOTE: The amount of time the device search takes is dependent upon the number of AISG
devices present on the tower. Typically, search on a tower that contains a small number of
devices, such as 6, will take about 3 minutes. A search on a tower with a full compliment
of devices may take up to 10 minutes.
The ‘Cancel Search’ button can be used to halt the device search at anytime. Note that
if a device search is halted, a new search can be started. To start a new device search,
click on the ‘Find Devices’ button again (Figure 4-2).

3. At completion of the search, a notification will appear showing the number of devices found
(Figure 4-3).
NOTE: If it is known that devices are present and operational, but none were found by the
device search, it is possible that the currently selected serial port is not communicating
with the controller.
To check serial port communication, repeat the device search and watch the communication light shown on the data LED of the controller. It should blink rapidly during the device
search. If it does not, and particularly if the search completes very quickly, the serial port
currently selected may not be functional. In this case, use the methods described in Section 3.2 to select a different serial port and repeat the search until you see activity on the
controller data communication LED.
If attempts have been made on all eight serial ports without success, contact your IT
department for assistance in determining the reason no serial port is available for use by
the program.
4. Click OK on the device search results dialog box (Figure 4-3). Pre-configured and new
devices found will display in the ‘Device Information’ list (Figure 4-4).
Note that a new device that has never been configured, will show a ‘Not Configured’ status
with no configuration data present.

3. Click on the down arrow found on the right hand side of the ‘Antenna Model‘ drop down
list. This will display all of the available Andrew base station antenna models that were
contained in the antenna definition file that was loaded at program startup (Figure
5-2).
4. Select the desired antenna model for this actuator. Note that after an antenna model is
selected, its minimum and maximum electrical down tilt range values are displayed just
below the drop down list (Figure 5-2).
IMPORTANT: The antenna model selected *must* match the actual installed antenna
that is attached to the actuator that is being configured. Movement data specific to
this antenna will be sent to the actuator as a result of this selection. If the antenna
model selected does not match the attached antenna, the movement range sent
to the actuator will be incorrect and may prevent the antenna from functioning
correctly. See Appendix B for a reference of antenna models compatible for use with the
ATC200-Lite Teletilt® system. For the most current listing of antenna models designed for
use with the ATC200-Lite Teletilt® system, see the Base Station Antenna Teletilt® area of
Andrew’s web site at www.andrew.com.
5. Use the ‘Antenna Type’ drop down list to select the antenna type that is correct for the
antenna model selected (Figure 5-2). Note that this value is used for reference only and
has no direct affect upon the Actuator/Antenna that is being configured.
6. Enter the serial number of the antenna that is attached to this actuator in the ‘Antenna
Serial #’ text entry field. Note that this field is optional. However, if it is entered, it must
be from 1 to 17 characters in length, and it may contain any combination of letters and
numbers (Figure 5-2).
7. Using the drop down lists and entry fields, specify the parameters for the remaining fields
(Frequency Band, Technology, Base Station ID, Installer ID, Installation Date, Mechanical
Tilt, Bearing, Height, Sector, and Location). Note the following:
• A positive mechanical tilt angle means that the antenna beam is directed below the
horizontal plane. A negative mechanical tilt angle means that the antenna beam is
directed above the horizontal plane.
• The bearing is the installed compass orientation for this antenna.
•
• The ID for the base station associated with this antenna must be 1 to 12 characters in
length, and it may contain any combination of numbers and letters.
•
The height of the antenna on the tower must be entered in the range of 1 to 999. No
specific unit of length, such as feet or meters, is associated with this field. However,
you should enter a value that conforms to the units of length customarily used by
your company for antenna installations.
The Installation Date field is handled differently from all other configuration items.
Although this field is not required, if no installation date has been saved on the
actuator the program will suggest the current date as the default. If the current date
is used, it will be saved on the actuator when the ‘Configure’ button is activated.

performed by the controller (Figure 9-2).
9.2 Retrieving Current Alarm
Status
AISG compliant devices report alarms to

spontaneous and the other of which must be
requested by the user. An AISG compliant
device, such as an ATM200, spontaneously
reports alarms in the ‘Command Status/Response’ window at the bottom of the screen
as they occur. Since they are reported spontaneously by the individual RET devices,
no action is required by the user to retrieve
these alarms. If desired, you may check to
see if any previously reported alarms are still
active.

9.4 Executing a Self Test Movement for a Device
Andrew’s ATM200 actuators support the AISG self test command. This feature allows the
user to periodically perform a test by temporarily making a small tilt angle movement on the
device. This test enables the user to verify that the actuator’s motor is operational and capable
of adjusting electrical tilt on the antenna. The movement executed as part of the self test is
designed to be so small as to not disrupt the current data/voice traffic. The movement is +/0.2 degrees to either side of the current downtilt angle, with a return to the original downtilt
angle at the end of the movement.
Note that if the current downtilt angle on the antenna is sufficiently close to the minimum or
maximum possible angle, the actuator may modify the test movement range of motion or
ignore the test movement command altogether.

10.2 Ordering Guide
As an example, assume a system is to be ordered for deployment in North America. The site
is a three sector site employing three UMWD-06516-XDM antennas. For this example, let’s
say the distance from the local controller to the junction box is 77m and the distance from the
junction box to the three actuators is 2 meters. This system would require the following.

The 80 m length is selected since it is the smallest size greater than 77 m. Field fitting of
connectors is not recommended in order that reliable, weatherproof connections can be
maintained.
Although the distance between antennas is 2 m, you will generally require a cable longer than
this ‘straight line’ distance.
The junction box requires grounding. If a lightning protection unit is used, it must also be
grounded.
