m WARNING
DO NOT USE these products as safety or emergency stop
devices or in any other application where failure of the product
could result in personal injury.
To satisfy FCC RF exposure requirements for mobile transmitting
devices, a separation distance of 20 cm or more should be
maintained between the antenna of this device and persons
during device operation To ensure compliance, operation at
closer than this distance is not recommended. The antenna
used for this transmission must not be co-located in conjunction
with any other antenna or transmitter.
PERSONAL INJURY
Failure to comply with these instructions could result in
death or serious injury.
m WARNING
Honeywell does not recommend using devices for critical
control applications where there is, or may be, a single point of
failure or where single points of failure may result in an unsafe
condition. It is up to the end-user to weigh the risks and benefits
to determine if the products are appropriate for the application
based on security, safety and performance. Additionally, it is
up to the end-user to ensure that the control strategy results in
a safe operating condition if any crucial segment of the control
solution fails. Honeywell customers assume full responsibility
for learning and meeting the required Declaration of Conformity,
Regulations, Guidelines, etc. for each country in their distribution
market.
m WARNING
POTENTIAL ELECTROSTATIC CHARGING
HAZARD
When the WBX Series is installed in potentially hazardous
locations, care should be taken not to electrostatically charge
the surface of the antenna shroud by rubbing the surface with a
cloth, or cleaning the surface with a solvent. If electrostatically
charged, discharge of the antenna shroud to a person or a tool
could possibly ignite a surrounding hazardous atmosphere.
m WARNING
POTENTIAL IMPACT HAZARD
Care should be taken during installation of the WBX switch to not
apply an impact force to the device. (i.e. dropping the WBX on a
hard surface, impact with a hammer/wrench, etc.).
m WARNING

Revision Information
Document name
Document ID
The Limitless™ product line combines the best of MICRO
SWITCH™ Heavy Duty limit switches with the latest commercial
off-the-shelf wireless technology. Limitless™ wireless products
incorporate point-to-point (P2P) wireless technology. Wireless-enabled limit switches can now be used for position sensing and
presence/absence detection for a wide variety of applications.
The Limitless™ WBX Series is especially beneficial for remote
monitoring applications where wiring or wire maintenance is not
physically possible or economically feasible. Combining this
greater flexibility with proven harsh duty packaging can result
in increased efficiencies and improved safety for machine and
equipment OEMs and operators. This document will provide
installation instructions to properly install a Limitless™ WBX Hazardous Area Limit Switch, WBX switch, or simply the WBX .
1.2 | Principle of Operation
The WBX will transmit the position of its actuator to a Limitless™
Wireless Panel Mount Monitor (WPMM Series) or Limitless™
Wireless DIN Rail Receiver (WDRR Series). The WPMM or WDRR
will then indicate the actuator position of the WBX via a visual
indicator, audible indicator and/or electronic output. The WBX
supports no electrical signal inputs and is powered by a replaceable battery.

A remote mount antenna requires the use of an extension cable
to allow the antenna to be mounted in a different location than
the WBX location. The extension cable will need to have one end
with an RP-SMA plug connector which will mate with the WBX
connector jack under the same mounting procedure as the direct
mount antenna. The other end of the extension cable will need to
mate with antenna connector directly or it may be integral to the
particular remote mount antenna chosen. See Figure 8.

5.3 | Update Rate/DIP Switches
The WBX update rate is the frequency at which the WBX will automatically communicate with the receiver when the switch is not
being actuated or de-actuated. It is adjustable from 1 second to
90 seconds. If the operator is cycling the switch faster than what
the update rate is set, the auto communication will not occur.
The update rate “clock” will also be reset upon an actuation or
de-actuation of the switch so communication will happen at the
next switch activation or update rate time; whichever occurs first.
An advantage of increasing the update rate frequency is allowing a faster indication of a lost RF signal between the switch and
receiver which is important in some applications. A disadvantage
of increasing the update rate is that it can decrease the battery
life as increasing the frequency of communication consumes
more battery power. The WBX has the capability to change the
update rate via DIP switch settings located inside the housing;
see the table below. The allowable DIP switch settings are seen
in the table below along with the Lost RF receiver indication time.
The Lost RF receiver indication time is the amount of time it takes
the receiver to indicate a lost RF condition via LED indication
and/or Lost RF electrical output change.

6 | WBX OPERATION
6.1 | Pairing Mode
Pairing is required to initiate and establish an RF communication
link between each single WBX and a single WPMM or WDRR. As
there are up to 14 WBX devices that can be paired to a single
WPMM or WDRR, it is advised that you identify each WBX switch
by physically marking them (permanent marker) from #1 to #14.
The initial WBX paired to the WPMM or WDRR will be Sequence
#1; the second WBX paired will be Sequence #2 and so on. If replacing a WBX that has been purged, as applicable(see section
6.5 of the WPMM Installation and Technical Manual or Section
7.3 of the WDRR Installation & Technical Manual), identify the
correct replacement Sequence # on the WBX. For example, if a
single WDRR is paired with 14 WBX devices, and WBX #4 must
be replaced, the replacement WBX will automatically become #4.
If the WDRR was paired with fewer than 14 devices, the specific
pairing number assigned to the newly paired device must be
ascertained and then recorded.

below which will then allow a new pairing to be conducted after
successful purging:
Table 24. Purging Instructions
6.3 | Antenna Adjustment
The antenna of the WBX and WPMM or WDRR should be oriented
with respect to each other such that they are parallel. This will
in most cases allow the longest range and highest RF communication link/signal. The least RF signal is normally in a direction
in-line with the top of the antenna, so it is best to avoid having
the antennas pointed directly toward each other, or directly away
from each other. An acceptable RF signal is also indicated by the
RF signal strength LEDs on the WDRR; see the WDRR Installation
and Technical Manual for further information.

A Limitless™ WBX will send an RF signal to the WPMM when the
actuator of the WBX switch changes position. There are up to
14 Limitless™ WBX switches that will communicate and indicate
their actuation position with a single WPMM. The mechanical
actuation (free position to full overtravel) of any one of the WBX
switches will cause a single red output LED to illuminate, a
buzzer to sound, and/or a change in the electrical output.* However, there will be no differentiation of outputs (visual, audible or
electrical state change) between any of the WBX switches being
actuated. Further, if a WBX switch causes the single red output
LED to illuminate, a buzzer to sound, and a change in the electrical output, actuation of any other Limitless™ WBX switch paired
with WPMM will not cause another output change (visual, audible
or electrical state change).
The operation and LED functions for the WPMM are visually depicted and described in the attached file. This file is also located
as a separate file at sensing.honeywell.com.
m WARNING
RF EXPOSURE
To satisfy FCC RF exposure requirements for mobile transmitting devices, a separation distance of 20 cm [7.87 in] or more
should be maintained between the antenna of this device
and persons during device operation. To ensure compliance,
operations at closer than this distance is not recommended.
The antenna used for this transmitter must not be co-located
in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
Failure to comply with these instructions could result in
death or serious injury.

AND INSTALLATION
7.1 | Overview of Antenna Options
Tables 14 and 15 list the antenna options along with the various
characteristics that will be referenced throughout this section.
This section is intended to assist an end user in determining
which antenna(s) are worth investigating and subjecting to application requirements for proof of suitability.
, ATTENTION
The antenna cables should not be modified (i.e. cut short
and/or re-terminated) as it may affect Communication
Agency approval.

7.1.1 | Omni-directional Antenna Design
The omni-directional antennas offered in the Limitless™ Series
were chosen for their ability to be used in applications where
transmit-and-receiver antennas may be moving with respect to
each other or could also be stationary. They are dipole antennas
that radiate power (power from the internal radio of the WBX) in
a 360° outward pattern in a plane perpendicular to the length of
the antenna element. “Omni” may suggest the antenna radiates
power in all directions, but that is not the case. The actual antenna radiation pattern looks more like a toroid (doughnut-shape) as
shown in Figure 19.
The antenna radiates virtually zero power in the Z axis and most
of the power in the X and Y axis. Increasing the antenna’s gain
will increase the power only in the X and Y axis. As a result, the
radiation pattern becomes narrower. For instance, this is analogous to the reflector in an automobile’s headlight. The reflector
does not add light or increase the luminous intensity of the light
bulb, rather it simply directs all the light energy in the forward
direction where the light is needed most.

be injured or killed if they are touching or holding any part
of equipment when it contacts electric lines. Make sure
there is NO possibility that equipment or personnel can
come in contact directly or indirectly with power lines.
• Assume all overhead lines are power lines.
• The horizontal distance from a tower, mast, or antenna to

7.2.2 | Antenna Mounting Location with Respect 7.3 | R.F. Interference Considerations
to Antenna Location
7.3.1 | General
There are several environmental factors to consider with respect
to antenna location during installation. These factors can affect
the radio frequency (RF) signal strength being both transmitted
and received by the WBX and corresponding Limitless™ WPMM
or WDRR. It is desirable for the antenna to be mounted to limit
exposure of adjacent materials/objects between the Honeywell
WBX and WPMM or WDRR, as they will have an effect on RF
signal strength. If the mounting location for an omni-directional
antenna is on the side of a building or tower, the antenna pattern
will be degraded on the building or tower side.
•
Indoor: Concrete, wood, drywall, and metal walls, etc.
The 802.15.4 specification provides a high resistance to interference. Within the 2.4 GHz band, there are 16 channels, each
using approximately 2 MHz of bandwidth. The channel used may
be rapidly changed depending on the presence of other signals
sensed in that channel. Thus narrow band interfering signals
may have no effect, while broadband noise sources may cause
loss. The effect of light to moderate interference is not to make
the system fail, but to increase the rate of “lost packets” of data.
These “lost packets” are simply retransmitted as needed, so the
user may not notice any problem. More serious interference can
cause loss of more data updates, and error messages, as well as
shorter battery life.
•
Outdoor: Vehicles, buildings, trees, structures, topology, weather conditions, chain link fence, major power
cables, etc.
7.3.2 | WiFi Networks
Obstacles that affect antenna patterns and RF signal strength:
Rain and moisture: Wireless switches compliant with IEEE
802.15.4 operate in a 2.4 GHz band. As the peak absorption
frequency of water molecules is approximately 22 GHz, the total
signal attenuation due to rain, fog or moisture is negligible (less
than 0.1 dB/mile for a heavy downpour).
Most WiFi (WLAN) networks operate in the same 2.4 GHz range
and use wider bands within that range. Also, the faster protocols
(802.11N or AC), may utilize multiple channels. Factors affecting
RF interference would be channel separation, distance separation, and duty cycle.
•
Channel separation: Studies have shown that a channel
separation of 7 MHz will make interference less likely. WiFi
routers can be set to use different channels as needed, and
auto channel modes can be disabled. If possible, switching
to a 5 GHz-only protocol (using 802.11N or AC), would eliminate any possibility of 2.4 GHz interference. The WDM may
be set to not use certain 802.15.4 channels.
•
Distance separation: A physical separation of 10 meters or
more will reduce possibility of interference.
•
Duty Cycle: Generally the duty cycle of WiFi routers is very
low for simple uses as e-mailing, messaging, most web
browsing, and voice protocols. However, a video camera
or multiple users streaming video would cause a significant
increase in bandwidth usage and increase the possibility of
interference, making channel or distance separation more
desirable.
7.2.3 | Line of Sight Considerations
Best performance is achieved when antennas for both the WBX
Limit Switch and WPMM or WDRR are mounted at the same
height and in a direct line of sight (LoS) with no obstructions, and
with both antennas vertical. Generally, the higher the antenna is
above ground, the better it performs.
Figure 20. WBX to WDRR or WPMM Antennas with RF
Signal Line of Sight (LOS) Free From Obstacles
Figure 21. WBX to WDRR or WPMM Antennas with RF
Signal Line of Sight (LOS) Affected by Obstacles
Regarding the WiFi client (laptop, smartphone, tablet), they are
much less of a problem as they generally operate with a much
reduced duty cycle (most data is received by the device), and
may operate with much lower transmit power.
7.3.3 | Smart Phone “Apps”
Smart phone “apps” are available to display consumer WIFI
signal strengths or download/upload speeds. These apps will
not display the 802.15.4 signals as the packet format is different.
However, if a suspected interference source causes a large reduction in consumer WiFi download speed, it is likely it could also
cause interference to the 802.15.4 data used by the WBX.

7.3.4 | Bluetooth® Devices
7.4 | Requirements
Bluetooth interference is less of an issue, due to the very narrow
bandwidth of Bluetooth® signals, the low transmit power, and the
rapid “frequency hopping” of the signals. If the 802.15.4 device
misses a packet of data due to a Bluetooth® burst of data, the
re-transmission of the 802.15.4 data will likely succeed, as the
Bluetooth® will have hopped to a different channel by then.
7.4.1 | Radio Installation Requirements
®
7.3.5 | Wireless Video Camera and Video Links
Wireless video links operating in the 2.4 GHz band can cause serious interference as they are operating continuously, use a wide
(6 MHz) bandwidth), and may be more powerful. Interference
from wireless video could cause the “NO RF” indication in severe
cases. As mentioned, frequency and/or distance separation may
be required.
•
•
Frequency Separation: Many video links have four or more
channels selectable. Changing channels may help. Additionally, wireless video links are available in the 900 MHz band,
and the 1.2 GHz band. Switching to one of those would eliminate interference issues with 802.15.4 (and 802.11x).
Distance Separation: Separating the video link switch from
the wireless switch would be very desirable. Alternatively,
utilizing directional antennas on the wireless switch, and /or
on the wireless video link would help greatly.
7.3.6 | Microwave Ovens
Microwave ovens operate in the 2.4 GHz range, they are powerful, and a high duty cycle. However, they may not be a problem to
a modern 802.15.4 network. The magnetron in a microwave oven
is driven by half-wave rectified AC, so the R.F. output is actually
off for one half of the 60 Hz or 50 Hz power line cycle (8.33 or
10.0 msec). During that part of the cycle, the packets of 802.15.4
data may succeed. However, close to half of the packets may
require retransmission, so data throughput could be greatly
reduced.
7.3.7 | Cordless Phones/Baby Monitors/
Intercoms
A 2.4 GHz cordless phone in very close proximity to a wireless
switch could cause lost packets, while the phone is in use, but
is not a very likely cause. If monitoring the link quality as in “link
measurements” above, shows interference, a simple remedy is to
switch to a DECT 6.0 cordless phone operating on 1.9 GHz.

• Installation and/or adjustment of a remote antenna for the
WBX Series Limit switch
• Maintenance on the WBX Series Limit Switch, including
battery replacement, pairing, purging, etc.
7.6.2 | Cable Requirement
Some remote mount SMA connector antennas have an antenna
cable permanently attached, with an RP-SMA plug, which is
simply connected to the jack on the switch. Other remote mount
antennas do not include cable, and require the use of an extension cable. This extension cable will normally need to have one
end with an RP-SMA plug (inside threads), which will connect to
the switch, and one end with an RP-SMA jack (outside threads).
The jack of the extension cable will mate with the antenna or the
32

lightning arrestor. If a lightning arrestor is connected this way, the
antenna may be directly connected to the arrestor.
Note that at 2.4 GHz, typical antenna cables types have 0.5 dB of
loss per meter (almost 5 dB for a ten meter cable, plus connector losses). Excessively long cable runs should be avoided if
possible.
Refer to Section 3.1 & 3.2 for approved antenna options and
approved cable options.
7.6.3 | Lightning Arrestor
The lightning arrestor may be mounted directly on the switch, or
at the far end of the antenna cable, mounted to a sheet of metal
in a through-hole. Generally, the choice should be made based
on having the shortest, most direct path to a good, solid ground.
If the lightning arrestor is mounted directly on the switch, use
caution when attaching a grounding wire to the arrestor to avoid
putting undue stress on the switch’s antenna connector. If the
coax cable is to enter a building, then the lightning arrestor
should be mounted as close as possible to where the lead-in wire
enters the building.
Lightning arrestors determined as ‘Simple Apparatus’ are allowed
and approved for use with WBX Series Limit Switch.
7.6.4 | Choosing a Mounting Location
The location of the antenna is important. Objects such as metal
columns, walls, etc. will reduce efficiency. Best performance is
achieved when antennas for both Multinodes and WBX Series
Switches are mounted at the same height and in a direct line of
sight with no obstructions. If this is not possible and reception is
poor, you try different mounting positions to optimize reception.
Antennas should be mounted clear of any obstructions to the
sides of the radiating element. If the mounting location for an omni-directional antenna is on the side of a building or tower, then
the antenna pattern will be degraded on the building or tower
side.
7.6.5 | Site Selection
Before attempting to install your antenna, consider the best place
to install the antenna for safety and performance.
Follow these steps to determine a safe distance from wires, power lines, and trees.
Step
Action
1
Measure the height of the antenna.
2
Add this length to the length of the tower or mast and
then double this total for the minimum recommended
safe distance.
Installation and Technical Manual for the
Limitless™ P2P Wireless Hazardous Area Limit Switch, WBX Series
Generally speaking, the higher the antenna is above the ground,
the better it performs. Good practice is to install your antenna
about 1,5 m to 3 m [5 ft to 10 ft] above the roof line and away
from all power lines and obstructions. If possible, find a mounting
place directly above the wireless device so the lead-in cable can
be as direct as possible.
7.6.6 | Antenna Styles
Choosing an antenna mounting style depends on application
conditions, along with antenna benefits and/or features and user
preference. The antenna’s gain to some extent determines physical size; also a consideration is the amount of room available in
the application.

7.6.8 | Magnetic Mounting
If a horizontal steel structural member or sheet metal area is
available, and there are no severe environmental conditions
(wind, vibration, etc.), a magnetic mount antenna may be an easy
solution. This also allows the option of easily making small adjustments to optimize RF path performance.
Using tie-wraps (cable ties), secure the coax cable to the nearby
structural members, using a tie-wrap every 25 cm to 30 cm [10 in
to 12 in].

7.6.7 | Antenna Mount Types
Antennas are provided with a variety of mounting options, including magnetic mount, tape mounting, or mast mounting. The
standard 2.0 dBi antennas, normally mounted on the switch, may
also be mounted to an extender cable, if the remote cable end
is mounted in a through hole with the nut and lockwasher. These
antennas may also be mounted on a lightning arrestor, if the
lightning arrestor is properly mounted in a through hole with a nut

Omni-directional antennas are vertically polarized and produce a
“doughnut” shaped pattern. It is very important to mount the antenna in a vertical (not leaning) position for optimal performance,
especially with higher gain antennas.

The benefit of the remote adhesive mount antenna is mounting
flexibility to a number of surfaces and in various orientations.
Note that the surface that the antenna is being mounted to will

be used to temporarily attach the antenna. Evaluate performance
before permanently mounting.
Mast mounting kits consist of a mounting bracket and one or two
U-bolt clamps. These kits allow the bracket to be mounted to
masts with outside diameters (O.D.) from 3,2 cm [1.25 in] to 5,1
cm [2 in]. Honeywell recommends that a 3,8 cm [1.5 in] or larger
tubing mast be used. The antenna is then mounted in a hole on
the bracket upper surface. Most standard brackets will have a
hole too large for an SMA mount antenna, so a new hole will be
needed. For hole dimensions, refer to Figure 4, WBX Antenna
Extender Cable Mounting Hole.
Permanent mounting: Pre-clean the surface where the antenna is
to be mounted with an alcohol wipe. Peel paper protection from
adhesive strip and mount to the cleaned surface. See Figure 25.

7.6.11 | Antenna Adjustment Considerations
The antenna of the WBX and WPMM monitor or WDRR receiver should be oriented in parallel. This will, in most cases, allow
the longest range and highest RF signal. The least RF signal is
normally in a direction in-line with the top of the antenna, so avoid
having antennas pointed directly toward or directly away from
each other.

7.8 | Choosing an Antenna Gain (dBi) With
Acceptable Fade-Margin
There are several different antenna gain options in the Limitless™
Series to choose from. This section helps determine the antenna
version(s) that will provide suitable RF signal performance for
specific applications.
m WARNING
The attenuator shall be used for testing purposes only. The
connection and disconnection of the antennas/attenuator
should only be performed in a non-hazardous area and with
no battery power applied to the WBX. This is due to the risk
of possibly damaging the internal WBX electronics and/or
igniting the surrounding hazardous atmosphere.
Failure to comply with these instructions could result in
death or serious injury.
The Limitless™ Series antenna’s actual gain is measured by how
much of the input power from the internal radio of the WBX is
concentrated in a particular direction. The WBX’s antenna transmits RF signals, and also receives RF signals from a Limitless™
WPMM monitor or WDRR receiver. In a particular application,
transmit signal strength may be better than the receive signal
strength or vice versa. The intent is to choose an antenna with the
optimum gain relative to application conditions for both transmitting and receiving.
Fade-margin is the amount of excess power available above
and beyond what is necessary to maintain a reliable RF signal
between the transmitter and receiver. Normally, an acceptable
threshold of excess power to ensure effective operation in a
variety of environmental conditions is 10 dB. A simple way to
determine if the signal strength is sufficient is to temporarily install
a 10 dB attenuator* between the RP-SMA plug of the antenna or
remote cable and RP-SMA jack of the WBX. This should be completed in an operating application environment with good nominal
environmental conditions. When using a WPMM monitor and
starting with the antenna chosen in Section 3.1, install the attenu-
36

ator and operate the system until exposure of all normal application conditions is completed while monitoring the orange LED (RF
link/signal indicator of the WPMM monitor). If the fade-margin is
unacceptable, the LED turns on solid indicating that the antenna position on the WBX and/or WPMM monitor will need to be
changed or another antenna type should be chosen. If using a
WDRR receiver; the RF signal strength can be monitored via the
RF Signal Strength LEDs. Please refer to the FUNCTIONAL INDICATOR section in the WDRR Installation and Technical Manual for
further details of operation.
Try several mounting locations and/or antennas while retesting
each with the attenuator to determine the optimal set-up that
provides an acceptable fade-margin. Remember to remove the
attenuator after testing is completed.

7.9 | Antenna Assembly and Installation
Table 25. Antenna Installation Steps
Step
Action
1
Assemble the new antenna on the ground at the installation site. For SMA mount antennas, mount the RP-SMA jack of the antenna cable to a hole in the bracket, using the nut and lockwasher supplied. For lightning arrestor mounting, mount the lightning
arrestor in the mounting bracket hole, and attach the extension cable to the arrestor.
2
Screw the SMA antenna onto the cable or lightning arrestor. Tighten all cables by hand only; do not use tools or you could
overtighten. Make sure that the connections are sealed (if outdoors) to prevent moisture and other weathering elements from
affecting performance. Honeywell recommends using a weathering tape (such as COAX-SEAL® #104 from electrical supply
houses, or Super 88 tape from 3M) for outdoor connections. Silicon sealant or ordinary electrical tape is not recommended for
sealing outdoor connections.
3
Attach the antenna bracket to the mast, using the U-Bolts as required.
4
Using tie-wraps (cable ties), secure the coax cable to the mast, using a tie-wrap every 25 cm to 30 cm [10 in to 12 in].
5
Follow standard strain relief practice when installing the antenna cable. Avoid excessive strain, bending, kinks, or crushing (stepping on or placing any weight on cable) before, during, or after the coax cable is secured in its final position.
6
Make sure the mast does not fall the “wrong way” should you lose control as you raise or take down the mast. Use a durable
non-conductive rope. Have an assistant tend to the rope; ready to pull the mast clear of any hazards (such as power lines)
should it begin to fall.
7
If the installation will use guy wires:
• Install guy anchor bolts.
• Estimate the length of guy wire and cut it before raising the mast.
• Attach guy wires to a mast using guy rings.
8
Carefully connect the antenna and mast assembly to its mounting bracket and tighten the clamp bolts. In the case of a guyed
installation, you must have at least one assistant to hold the mast upright while the guy wires are attached and tightened to the
anchor bolts.
9
Attach a "DANGER" label at eye level on the mast.
10
Install ground rods to remove any static electricity buildup and connect a ground wire to the mast and ground rod. Use ground
rods designed for that purpose; do not use a spare piece of pipe.
11
When attaching the coax cable to the WBX Switch, it is recommended that a drip loop with a radius of at least 30 cm [12 in] be
formed close to the WBX Switch. This will minimize ice and water buildup on the switch itself. Tighten cables by hand only; do
not use tools or you could overtighten.

7.10 | Grounding the Antenna
Follow these guidelines to ground the antenna in accordance with national electrical code instructions.
Table 26. Antenna Grounding Steps
Step
Action
1
Use No. 10 AWG copper or No. 8 or larger copper-clad steel or bronze wire as ground wires for both mast and lead-in.
Securely clamp the wire to the bottom of the mast.
2
Secure the lead-in wire to a lightning arrestor and mast ground wire to the building with stand-off insulators spaced from 1,2 m
[4 ft] to 1,8 m [8 ft] apart.
3
The lightning arrestor must be bonded to earth ground in order to function properly. Due to the small diameter coaxial cables
used with the RP-SMA connectors, the lightning arrestor must be grounded independent of the antennas, using number 10
solid wire. This wire must be connected directly to a solid ground. It may be the same ground as is used for the antenna tower.
4
Drill a hole in the building’s wall as close as possible to the equipment to which you will connect the lead-in cable. Use a rubber
grommet or feed-thru tube to protect the cable from abrasion.
m CAUTION
There may be wires in the wall. Before drilling check that the area is clear of any obstructions or other hazards.
5
Pull the cable through the hole and form a drip loop on the outside close to where the cable enters the building. The drip loop
should have a radius of at least 30 cm [12 in].

7.12 | Environment Usage/Concerns
7.12.1 | Choosing an Antenna/Cable to Meet Application Exposure Conditions
There is no antenna or cable design impervious to every environmental condition that it could be exposed to. So it is suggested that
the application environment be reviewed as follows:
Table 28. Preparing Antenna for Environmental Use
Step
Action
1
Determine where the antenna will be installed and the application conditions: indoor, outdoor, or limited outdoor exposure.
Even if the antenna is going to be used indoors, an outdoor antenna may be more suitable (i.e., resistant to fluids, rigid
construction, etc.)
2
Determine what the antenna may be subjected to (i.e., fluids, chemicals, oils, wind, shock, vibration, etc.).
3
A. Review antenna and/or cable materials (listed in Section 3.2) against resistance to chemicals and fluids. If choosing an adhesive mount, adhesive resistance testing may be necessary.
B. If shock, vibration, wind, rain, sleet/snow, etc. are in the application, choose an antenna rated for outdoors and
has a rigid design.
4
The WBX’s enclosure is designed to meet NEMA 4 and IP67 requirements; however, this step may be required to provide
an extra level of protection, especially if the application may be subjecting antennas and cables to liquids. The RP-SMA
connections, tilt/swivel joints, and cable entrances are potential leak paths that could lead to corrosion. The following procedure is one way to provide extra protection to these connections and joints.
Ensure that the area you are applying tape to is clean from contaminants by first cleaning with mild detergent/water and
completely dry. Follow with an isopropyl alcohol wipe of the area.
Layer 1: Wrap a layer of polyvinyl chloride insulating tape
Layer 2: Wrap a layer of Rubber splicing tape i.e. Scotch® 23
Layer 3: Wrap a layer of UV stable polyvinyl chloride insulating tape
Layer 1 allows the user to remove Layer 2 for connector inspection, antenna replacement, repositioning of the tilt/swivel antenna, etc.
See Figure 5 as an example of the tapes applied to a RP-SMA jack antenna connection. The lime/black antenna guard is
not required to be installed.
If the antenna and connectors are not protected by the radome, the connector and threads should be protected from the elements
through an application of protective tape. See Figure 5, Application of Protective Tape.

A recommended protective tape is COAX-SEAL® #104 Hand Moldable Plastic Weatherproofing Tape, available from electrical
supply houses.
