Series V Router
Overview
The Landis+Gyr Gridstream RF Series V Router is designed for outdoor mounting. The router supports RS-232/485 serial interface for Transparent Packet Protocol (TPP) and RS-232 serial interface
for LAN Packet Protocol (LPP). The LAN Packet Protocol line is used to communicate to devices
which use LPP, such as a PC with configuration or diagnostic software, or an end device which has
implemented LPP. The TPP provides a general data port and is used to transport byte-oriented data,
such as that generated by industry standard protocols.

NOTE: This product supports either the Landis+Gyr Gridstream classic RF protocol or the Gridstream
Series V radio interoperable “G5i” standards-based RF protocol. Unique aspects of Gridstream classic protocol are noted “classic” in this document. Unique aspects of the standards-based protocol are
noted with “G5i” in this document.
In an AMI system, routers are used to create a robust communications path to a collector or for SmartGrid applications.
In a Distribution Automation application, it is commonly interfaced with such devices as Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and other Intelligent End Devices
(IEDs) and communicates via RS-232/485 TPP to end devices.

The router radio is provided in a white, die-cast aluminum enclosure. It has two connectors—one for
AC power and one for RS-232/485 signal and 12/24 DC power. The router will operate between
120VAC (+/-20%) and 277 VAC (+/-15%) without having to change any settings. 12/24 VDC can be
applied through the same port that provides the RS-232 lines. RS-232 lines are provided for both LPP
and TPP communication. The radio is provided with a standard N-Female antenna connector and
mounting hardware.
If programming before installation, an optional programming cable should be ordered with routers radios for initial configuration (see P/N 105617-000 and 105616-000). If you are connecting the router
to an RS-232 end device, you will also need to order a signal cable (see P/N 105554-000 and P/N
105552-000).

Configuring WAN Address
U
WARNING: THIS STEP MUST BE PERFORMED AFTER THE ROUTER HAS REGISTERED WITH
COMMAND CENTER. IF THE LAT/LONG IS UPDATED PRIOR TO REGISTRATION, THE ROUTER WILL NOT REGISTER.
The Radio WAN Address represents the 6 byte geographic address of the radio used for routing packets through the Gridstream network. In a layered network, routers do not require latitude and longitude
coordinates to work.

NOTE: All collectors and routers must be programmed with a proper Latitude/Longitude and the routing bit must be enabled on routers. This simplifies troubleshooting and network maintenance in the
field using RadioShop. Distance between routers and mapping will be available that are not available
in a purely layered network.
1. From RadioShop main menu, select Configure > WAN Address. The Configure WAN Address
window is displayed
...or...
Right-click on the device in the Nodes pane and select Configure WAN.

in one of the following ways:
3. Latitude/Longitude. Enter the WAN address latitude/longitude coordinates in deg/min/sec/
msec/NS / EW.
...or...
Decimal degrees. enter the WAN address in decimal degrees NS / EW.
...or...
Encoded Value (6-byte). If known, the latitude/longitude 6-byte value may be entered. This
value will automatically be generated when new latitude/longitude coordinates are entered and
written to the radio.
Color is always '0' for routers. SCADA/DA radios can have a color value if more than one radio
is located at the same physical location.
4. Enable Routing check-box will enable the radio routing bit when the WAN is written to the
radio. This can eliminate the next programming step.
5. Set as Mobile. This link will remove a Geo-coded WAN address.
6. Click OK when values are correct.

Installation Best Practices
Router Installation
The final guidelines provided by the utility or municipality determine where the router can be installed. It is the installer’s responsibility to know and follow the utility or municipality guidelines before installing the router.
The utility provides installation information for every router to be installed, such as:
•
Street address or Latitude/Longitude of site location
•
Type of mounting (wood pole, streetlight pole, building, etc.)
•
Access method (bucket truck or pole-climb)
Figure 5 - 1. Router Installed on a Swivel Bracket
Safety Precautions
Each individual utility will have its own interpretation of local codes and regulations governing the
installation and placement of equipment on a power distribution pole. The utility or municipality determines the final guidelines of where to install the router. Know and follow the utility or municipality
guidelines before installing the router.

Chapter 5 - Installation Best Practices
U
Landis+Gyr
WARNING: Follow all local safety precautions for working around high voltage lines.
Power Requirements
Verify that the power source is between 120 VAC and 240 VAC. The power source must have a constant supply of voltage.

NOTE: Poles selected for router installation must have a constant supply of voltage. Many streetlights
are fed by a switched source that is controlled by a master switch, elsewhere. A pole that is powered
only half a day, every day will produce a failure condition.
Router Parts and Materials
When receiving system components, carefully inspect the packaging and contents for any damage,
and file any necessary damage claims with the shipper.
Router Installation Location
The following is general information regarding below-conductor router installation.
1. Ensure that required parts, tools, and materials are on hand and available.
2. Decide on the location at which the router will be installed.
3. Landis+Gyr suggests installing the router at least 30 inches below a transformer, 40 inches from
any primary service conductor, minimum 30 inches from pole and at least 30 inches above or
below any communication lines (if present) while staying as high as possible.


48
NOTE: Landis+Gyr recommends that routers always be installed on 6 foot arms perpendicular to and
facing the roadway. When installing in a power line right of way, the router should be installed perpendicular to the right of way.
NOTE: The best practice for installing a Router is antenna pointed down. It is Landis+Gyr policy that
the antenna for the Router, any C6X00 Series (GAP) Collector, Concentrator and Mesh Extender be
installed pointed downward. Should the antenna not point downward as a part of any deployment, the
device warranty is void. If the warranty is void, it is the utilities responsibility to repair the unit should
any defect occur.

1. Slide a lock washer and a flat washer onto each of the two 3/8-16 bolts, attach the swivel bracket
to the mounting plate by threading bolt into press nut on mounting plate.
2. Slide a lock washer and a flat washer onto each of the four 1116 3/8-16 bolts, you are now ready
to thread the bolts through the clamps that will go around the streetlight mast.

NOTE: To install the swivel bracket to the mast, open one side of the bracket to permit mast entry.
3. Hang the router mount assembly off the mast and re-install the mast clamp bolts, taking care to
keep the flat washer and lock washer on the mast clamp bolts with the lock washer closer to the
head of the bolt.
4. Install the antenna and connect the power supply cable assembly to the router.

WARNING: If using the 105704-000, 105704-001, 105704-002, 105704-003, or 19-1224 cables,
the end of the cable opposite the connector (the unterminated end) must be installed in a junction box or other suitable enclosure.
Leaving the end of the cable exposed may allow water to migrate into the cable and into the
router.
See Appendix B for power cable installation procedures and details.
5. As the mast clamps are tightened, align the router so that the antenna does not exceed 5º off
perpendicular to the ground.
6. Route the power cable and connect the cable photo-eye adapter to the streetlight for power to the
router.
The mounting bracket can be adjusted to compensate for the angle of the streetlight arm. This
allows the router to be perpendicular to the ground plane. A small bubble level is useful to
ensure that the antenna is correctly positioned.
7. Verify that the antenna is perpendicular within tolerance and tighten all bolts per specifications.
8. Secure the power cable to the light arm using UV-resistant cable ties, Figure 5 - 4. Trim the
waste ends from the ties for a clean installation.

NOTE: The cable tie must be installed at a point that will not exert stress on the cable connection.
Install the tie so that the stress on the cable is eliminated. The cable tie should be installed straight
out of the connector. The cable needs to tied at a point where the cable remains straight going into
the router connector before allowing any cable loop.

WARNING: If using the 105704-000, 105704-001, 105704-002, 105704-003, or 19-1224 cables,
the end of the cable opposite the connector (the unterminated end) must be installed in a junction box or other suitable enclosure.
Leaving the end of the cable exposed may allow water to migrate into the cable and into the
router.
See below for power cable installation procedures and details.
If power connections of this type are to be made, the 105627-000 and 105627-001 must be used. Note
that a drip loop at both ends of the cable is needed.
Recommendations
When existing 105704-XXX cables are used, they must be terminated inside a junction or disconnect
box. The inner wires cannot be exposed until after the 105704-XXX cable enters the enclosure. Once
inside the box, connect the power leads to wires going to the mains per local practice. Connections to
the mains must use UV-stable wiring. As long as the wire is UV-stable and rated for outdoor use, the
wire model and manufacturer may be selected by the programs. Part number 18-1033 wire is acceptable and recommended.
In published examples, collector cables are shown going through conduit. Conduit is not required for
routers, but the entrance to the junction box should be through a clamp at the bottom of the junction
box. Junction boxes do not have a part number and are available through local vendors. As always,
electrical connections need to meet the requirements of the local utility and local ordinances.
The following diagram shows an installation using a junction box with a router. If the 105704-XXX
cable is used, this is a required installation procedure.

Antenna Orientation
Figure 5 - 10. Antenna Orientation

NOTE: Please note that the best practice for installation is antenna pointed downward. The deployment of antenna pointed downward allows water vapor to pass in/out of the enclosure such that the
air pressure is allowed to equalize without compromising the operation. The antenna down orientation
also provides a shelter as opposed to a shelf and therefore does not enable debris to accumulate in
front of the vent. The orientation of antenna pointed downward precludes the vent from getting
plugged which prevents pressure from building up and damaging enclosure seals.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Gridstream Routers
The following are general guidelines for troubleshooting a Gridstream Router once it has been successfully installed and configured for communications to the Command Center head-end system.
A
CAUTION: A router's main purpose is to facilitate routing of packets and provide communications paths. If a router fails, the network will self adjust and use alternative communications
paths. However, if a router is used as a communications bridge for meters in a rural environment or a meter bank, a router outage should be handled with a higher priority and replaced
in a timely fashion to prevent falling behind on meter reads.
1. When an outage event is received in Command Center from a router, go to the History tab in the
Gridstream RF Endpoint Information screen and establish when the outage occurred.
Figure A - 1. History Tab (Gridstream Router)
2. Look at other outage events and establish if the outage is restricted to the router in question. This
may be an indication of a bigger outage.
3. Issue a Ping command and see if a positive response comes back, as shown in Figure A - 2.

4. If Command Center fails to establish communications with the router, validate that the pole top
or the street light that the router is mounted on has power.
5. Use RadioShop to try to establish communications with the router through a neighboring
collector and/or a meter.
6. If the problem persists, contact Landis+Gyr at 888-390-5733 for further investigation and then
replace the faulty router with a new one.
