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
transmitted back to the cell tower through the Outside Antenna.
The In-Line (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 an In-Line 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
include:
1. Cable loss – Long runs of cable from the Inside Antenna to the main InBuilding Signal Booster may have significant loss or require Wilson 400
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 overcomes the losses associated with large In-Building
installations. The In-Line recovers inside coverage area that is normally lost
due to cable, splitter and tap loss. By installing the In-Line near an Inside
Antenna, uplink noise figure is minimized and downlink power is maximized.
Additionally, the In-Line enhances performance of the main Signal Booster
by increasing the systems gain and input signal dynamic range. The variable
gain knobs on the In-Line allow for simple, quick signal level balancing and
installation.

Installing the Wilson Electronics In-Line
Select a location to install the In-Line that is away from excessive heat, direct
sunlight, moisture and has proper ventilation. Do not place in an air-tight
enclosure. Recommended installation locations for the In-Line 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 event of a
power surge or lightning strike.

Powering up a Wilson Electronics In-Line
1. Never point the front of a Directional Outside Antenna toward the
Inside Antenna. See Figures 4 & 5 on page 8.
2. Run the antenna cable from the In-Building Signal Booster “Inside
Antenna” connector to the In-Line “Outside Antenna” connector and
attach to both connectors. Run the Inside Antenna cable to the In-Line
and attach it to the connector labeled “Inside Antenna” on the In-Line.
For more information (see pages 3 & 4).
3. Plug the power supply into the In-Line 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 In-Line 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 In-Line.
6. Using multiple In-Building Signal Boosters other than the In-Line in
one installation could cause interference to the cell tower.

Understanding the In-Line Lights and
Troubleshooting
During installation mode the In-Line is resetting itself very quickly to aid
the installer. The In-Line 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 In-Line 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 In-Line can be reset and enter installation mode again by disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply from the Signal Booster.
1. Blinking Green
If the indicator lights are blinking green, the In-Line 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.

or email: [email protected] Mon.- Fri. Hours: 7 am to 6 pm MST.
2. Solid Red
If either of the two indicator lights on the In-Line are solid red, this
indicates that the In-Line 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 In-Line in small increments
by rotating the gain control, counter clockwise, waiting 5 seconds
between each adjustment for the In-Line to reset. Continue this
adjustment until the indicator 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 (see figure 7 below). 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 In-Line.
3. SOLID Green
The indicator lights on the In-Line 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.
