In Norway and Sweden:
Equipment connected to the protective earthing of the building
installation through the mains connection or through other
equipment with a connection to protective earthing – and to a cable
distribution system using coaxial cable, may in some circumstances
create a fire hazard. Connection to a cable distribution system has
therefore to be provided through a device providing electrical
isolation below a certain frequency range (galvanic isolator, see EN
60728-11).
Utstyr som er koplet til beskyttelsesjord via nettplugg og/eller via
annet jordtilkoplet utstyr – og er tilkoplet et kabel-TV nett, kan
forårsake brannfare. For å unngå dette skal det ved tilkopling av
utstyret til kabel-TV nettet installeres en galvanisk isolator mellom
utstyret og kabel- TV nettet.
Utrustning som är kopplad till skyddsjord via jordat vägguttag
och/eller via annan utrustning och samtidigt är kopplad till kabel-TV
nät kan i vissa fall medfőra risk főr brand. Főr att undvika detta skall
vid anslutning av utrustningen till kabel-TV nät galvanisk isolator
finnas mellan utrustningen och kabel-TV nätet.

Installation Guide
Channel-Port Mapping to Polarization
Two transceiver chains and two diplexers are embedded in each IP-20C unit.
In most cases, both diplexers are the same exact type. When the diplexers are
the same type, radio ports 1 and 2 cover the exact same frequency range.
In the 6-11GHz frequency bands, where channelization and diplexers are
relatively narrow, a single IP-20C unit might have to operate in two channels
that are not covered by the same diplexer.
When this is required, the IP-20C can be ordered with two different diplexer
types to cover two different channel ranges within the same frequency band.
An IP-20C with the same type of diplexer assembled on both transceiver
chains has the following marketing model structure:

Example: IP-20C-HP-6L-252A-1W4-H-ESX
In this example, 1W4 indicates that both transceivers cover channels 1
through 4.

An IP-20C with two different types of diplexers has the following
marketing model structure:
Example: IP-20C-HP-6L-252A-1W27W8-H-ESX
In this example, 1W27W8 indicates that channels 1 through 2 are covered
by Port1, while channels 7 through 8 are covered by Port2.
An IP-20C assembly for this example would look as follows:
Radio Port ID (EMS ID)
Note:

FibeAir® IP-20C
Installation Guide
When installing an IP-20C unit with two different diplexers in a Multicore 2+0
DP Direct Mount configuration, the V and H ports of the OMT are mechanically
connected to Port 2 and 1 respectively.
This means that in the above example, V polarization is covered by channels 7
through 8 (Port 2) and H polarization is covered by channels 1 through 2
(Port 1).
To assign the channels to different polarizations, a different system with a
different marketing model should be ordered.
The following marketing model represents a system in which V polarization is
covered by channels 1 through 2 (Port 2) and H polarization is covered by
channels 7 through 8 (Port 1):

Please note that when selecting two operational channels that are not covered
by the same diplexer, certain TX-TX separation and TX-RX separation criteria
should be met.

Grounding Procedure
Required Tools

Metric offset wrench key wrench #3

Metric wrench 10mm
Procedure
1 On the front of each IP-20C unit, loosen the nut, plain washer, and serrated
washer from the GND stud, using the metric offset hexagon key and the
wrench.
2 Place the cable lug (supplied with the IP-20C grounding kit) in place on the
screw.
3 Secure the cable lug.
4 The second side of the GND cable should be connected to the main ground
bar or terminal ground bar of the site.
5 Perform a resistance test between the 2 lugs of the GND cable. Verify that
the result is 0-2 ohms.
Notes:
The unit’s earthing screw terminal shall be permanently
connected to protective earth in a building installation in
accordance with applicable national code and regulations by
a service person.
A 2-pole circuit breaker, a branch circuit protector, suitably

Grounding for MultiCore Mediation Devices
MultiCore Mediation Devices (MCMDs) must be connected to the IP-20C using
a Grounding Jumper, to ensure proper grounding of the MCMD. To connect the
Grounding Jumper:
1 When you secure the MCMD to the antenna, connect one end of the
Grounding Jumper to the lower left screw that connects the MCMD to the
antenna.
2 When you perform the IP-20C grounding procedure described in
section 3.1.1, connect the other end of the Grounding Jumper to the IP-20C
grounding screw, along with the IP-20C grounding cable. The order in
which you place the two cables is not important.

Installation Guide
Power Source
When selecting a power source, the following must be considered:
DC power can be from -40 VDC to -60 VDC.
Recommended: Availability of a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Source), battery
backup, and emergency power generator.
Whether or not the power source provides constant power (i.e., power is
secured on weekends or is shut off frequently and consistently).
The power supply must have grounding points on the AC and DC sides.
3.2
Caution!
The user power supply GND must be connected to the
positive pole in the IP-20C power supply.
Any other connection may cause damage to the system!
Note!
For the warranty to be honored, you must install the IP-20C
in accordance with the instructions above.
Surge Protection
IP-20C includes built-in surge protection for its Ethernet and power
interfaces. IP-20C’s surge protection implementation complies with the
standards set forth in the Surge Protection Requirements section of the IP-20C
Technical Description, provided the Ethernet cables were prepared according
to the instructions in Connecting the Ethernet Cable on page 49.
In areas in which severe lighting conditions are likely to occur, it is strongly
recommended to add additional protection by placing lightning protectors on
all electrical Ethernet cables, near the connection points with the IP-20C unit.

Generic Installation Procedures
5.1
General Notes Concerning All Installation Procedures
Since the IP-20C architecture is of a Dual Core nature, each dual core
configuration can be considered as single core configuration hardware ready
for its dual core counterpart. Therefore, you should follow the same procedure
for 2+0 SP installation, if you want to install a 1+0 SP HW ready for 2+0 SP.
One of the major benefits of the IP-20C and the dual core architecture is that
upgrading can be done remotely by uploading the correct software license.
5.2
Torque for Captive Screws
When tightening the captive screws, use 20 Nm torque for radio-antenna,
radio-mediation device, and mediation device-antenna connections. In order
to avoid tilt, screws should be tightened progressively.

Installation Guide
Installing IP-20C on Third-Party Antenna
Adaptors
Since the IP-20C uses the same antennas as RFU-C, it can utilize the 3rd party
mediation devices much in the same way they are used with RFU-C
installations.
Special attention must be taken in assembling these configurations, as the 3rd
party adaptors can be used only for single polarization configurations. Dual
polarization configurations can be accommodated neither with RFU-C nor
with IP-20 C.
In general once the correct 3rd party adaptor has been selected and installed
on the antenna, the interface now is identical to a generic single pol. RFU-C
interface. From this moment forth it is ready for any subsequent IP-20C
configuration.

Special Note on Converting ValuLine 3 Antennas
Part numbers for ValuLine 3 antenna conversion kits are valid for most
ValuLine 3 antennas, integrated or non-integrated. These conversion kits can
also be used to convert Andrew ValuLine 3 antennas with the old Nera
Evolution interface to RFU-C. The kits support the majority of Andrew’s
ValuLine 3 antennas, 1-6ft. However, since there are some unique cases in
which Andrew provided special antennas which are not supported by these
adaptors, it is recommended that you supply your Ceragon representative
with a picture of the current antenna (back plain side), in order to confirm the
antenna’s compatibility prior to implementing this solution.
You can also check the following to determine whether the antenna is
compatible with the conversion kit:
 Verify that the antenna is, in fact, a ValuLine 3 antenna.
 Verify that the back plate of the antenna has in its holding plate the six
mounting holes shown in red in the figure below.

Notes:
The antenna interface is always the IP-20C interface.
If other antennas are to be used, an adaptor with a 0.1 dB loss
should be considered.
The numbers above represent the typical loss per component.
