5. Quick guide for installation and use
This section provides a step-by-step description of equipment installation and
configuration procedure. Follow these procedures closely upon first power-on
and each time any change is made to general configuration, such as when a new
transmission station is added or the equipment is replaced.
Once the desired configuration has been set up, no more settings are required
for normal operation; at each power-up (even after an accidental shutdown),
the equipment defaults to the parameters set during the initial configuration
procedure.
The topics covered in this section are discussed at greater length in the next
sections, with detailed descriptions of all hardware and firmware features and
capabilities. Please see the relevant sections for additional details.
IMPORTANT: When configuring and testing the transmitter in which the equipment
is integrated, be sure to have the Final Test Table supplied with the equipment ready
at hand throughout the whole procedure; the Final Test Table lists all operating
parameters as set and tested at the factory.

Loc
Modifies machine operation. In the LOCAL mode, the machine can read
and modify its operating parameters through the navigation keys and the
management firmware, whereas all other sources are locked out. In the
REMOTE mode, the machine can only read its operating parameters;
parameters are modified based on the commands received from other
connected telemetry systems.
PgD
Modifies Power Good (forward power) threshold. The Power Good rate
is a percent of machine rated power (300 W), not of forward output
power. This means that this threshold set at 50% will give 150 W
regardless of set power level. The Power Good feature enables output
power control and reporting. When output power drops below set Power
Good threshold, the machine changes the state of pin [7] of the DB15
“Remote” connector located on the rear panel (figure 6.3.2 - [6]).

Alarm conditions are numbered from 1 to 10 and reflect the following situations:
forward output power too high, reflected output power too high and input power
too high.
Alarm monitoring cycle is as follows: when an alarm condition is detected, alarm
counter increases by 1 unit, machine goes into lock-out state and the display shows
the cause for the stop (chap. 5.3.4.1). After 15 seconds, the machine attempts
to re-start; if a new alarm condition is detected, cycle is repeated over and over
again up to 10 times maximum.
If machine re-starts successfully, all alarm counters are reset after 30 minutes’
regular operation. After 10 alarm conditions triggered by the same cause, the
machine goes into fault lock-out mode, a lock-out mode warning appears on the
display and the “FAULT” LED turns on (chap. 6.1).
After the alarm condition has been rectified, the counter can be reset by highlighting
“Reset Alm” and holding down the ENTER key for some time (chap. 6.1).

Alarms and Faults
There are three types of alarms that can cause a machine lock-out and trigger
a “FAULT/LOCK” indication. When any one of the three alarm thresholds is
exceeded, the system will automatically switch to the warning screen (even
though the user is browsing system menus) and the following messages
are displayed:

7. Working Principles
7.1
Panel Board
The panel board contains the microcontroller (PIC18F452) that implements the
equipment control software, the display and the other components needed to
interface with the user.
The board is connected with the other machine modules, both for power supply
distribution and for the control and measures.
7.2
Telemetry Board
This board is designed to inform the user of the equipment operation state. All
input and output signals are available on the DB25 connector.
The same board also features the “INTERLOCK” BNC connector for disabling the
device. By grounding the central pin, the output power is reduced to zero until the
connection is removed.
When an R.V.R. amplifier is used, this connector is linked to the power amplifier
REMOTE or INTERLOCK by means of a BNC-BNC connection. In case of amplifier
faults, the central conductor is grounded thus forcing the machine to enter in
stand-by mode.
7.3
Power Supply
The PJ300C-LCD power supply unit is a switching-type unit whose +50 V main
stabilizers for generating continuous +5 V, +18 V and -18 V voltages for supplying
the other equipment circuits. Note that the power supply is a “direct from mains”
type, or rather it is without a transformer, and it can be connected to any voltage
between 90 and 260 V without any adjustments or manual settings.
7.4
Power Amplifier
The final power stage is enclosed in a totally shielded metal container fastened
in the centre of the device.
The RF signal coming from input power connectors, attenuate of 6 dB (for better
input return loss), measured by directional coupler and then sent to the final stage
that sees to its final amplifications up to 300W.
In addition to the actual RF amplification, this circuit carries out the following
functions:
24 / 26
•
Control of the power level in output, depending on the setting
•
Reduction of the power supplied when in presence of high-level reflected
power
Rev. 1.1 - 06/04/12
User Manual
PJ300C-LCD
ELETTRONICA
•
Measures of the forward and reflected power by means of directional
couplers
•
Measures of the current absorbed by the power amplifier
•
Measures of the temperature
•
Low-pass filtering of the RF signal in output
This board also features an RF sampling of approximately -50dB RF with respect
to the output, which is available on a BNC connector below the transmitter output
connector. This sample is is useful for verifying the characteristics of the carrier,
but not for verifying those of the upper harmonics.
7.3
Control Board
The main function of this board is to check and correct the MOSFET polarization
voltage of the RF amplifier section.
It also provides the measurement of the absorbed current.
If no alarms are present, the voltage is adjusted only depending on the set output
power, with a feedback mechanism based on the reading of the power really
delivered (AGC).
The voltage is also affected by other factors, such as:
•
Excess of reflected power.
•
External AGC signals (Ext. AGC FWD, Ext. AGC RFL).
•
Excess of temperature.
•
Excess of absorbed current from the RF module.
