SAFETY SUMMARY The following general safety precautions must be observed during all phases of operation, service and repair of this equipment. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in this manual violates safety standards of design, manufacture and intended use of the equipment.

Thrane & Thrane A/S assumes no liability for the customer’s failure to comply with these requirements.

MICROWAVE RADIATION HAZARDS During transmission this unit radiates microwaves from the antenna. This radiation may be hazardous if exposed directly to humans close to the antenna. Make sure that nobody is closer than the recommended minimum safety distance of 1 ft. (0.3 meters) during use of the transceiver.

KEEP AWAY FROM LIVE CIRCUITS Operating personnel must not remove equipment covers. Only qualified maintenance personal must make component replacement and internal adjustment. Under certain conditions, dangerous voltages may exist even with the cable removed. To avoid injuries, always disconnect power and discharge circuits before touching them.

REGISTRATION

Before use of the TT-3026C mini-C transceiver on the Inmarsat-C system it must be registered to the system, which

involves a little paper work. This is done using the SARF (Service Activation Registration Form) supplied with the mini-

C MES. Page 1 of the SARF is shown in Figure 6.

The SARF for registration of Maritime MES can also be found on www.inmarsat.org (CUSTOMER SUPPORT -> SERVICE ACTIVATION). The site also contains notes on how to complete the maritime form.

The Service Activation Registration Form contains different abbreviations that will be explained here.

The mini-C MES must be registered at either a PSA company or directly to the ISP. A PSA is a company handling the activation of Inmarsat mobiles and is short for Point of Service Activation. ISP is the company that provides the Inmarsat service and is short for Inmarsat Service Provider. In many cases the PSA and ISP is the same company that also operates a Land Earth Station (LES). The local PSA or ISP can be obtained by following the guidelines in the registration form.

The Service Activation Registration Form also includes information needed to find out how to pay the bill for the Inmarsat-C service. This payment will be done directly to the Accounting Authority. In many cases the Accounting Authority (AA) is also the same company as the Inmarsat Service Provider (ISP).

In addition to the general information like name, address, etc.

the ISN of the mini-C MES must be specified. The ISN is located on the Delivery Note and in the bottom of the mini-C MES.

Refer to Table 1 for answers to selected SARF questions.

When the mini-C MES is registered at the ISP it is ready to be used on the Inmarsat-C network. The ISP has returned a Mobile Number for the mini-C MES and prior to operating the mini-C MES it must be configured with this Mobile Number.

The mobile number can be entered using the TT-3606E Message Terminal:

1. Choose Options, Configuration, Terminal mode (Alt, O, C, T) and wait for the blinking cursor to appear. This may take a while if the transceiver and the Message Handling program are communicating.

2. Press Enter to see the prompt ' :' on the screen.

3. Type se -u xxxxxxxxx <enter>, where xxxxxxxxx is the mobile number.

4. Press Esc to leave the Terminal Mode when you're done to ensure the functionality of your system.

4.3.2 ANTENNA MOUNTING CONDITIONS

When installing the TT-3026C mini-C Transceiver, find a location that is as free from obstructions as possible. Also maintain a certain distance to other antennas, especially radar installations. Normally the best place for the antenna would be above radar scanning antennas. The following safe distances should be maintained:

Distance to HF antennas

> 5 meter

Distance to VHF antennas

> 4 meter

Distance to other Inmarsat-C transceiver. Important: Remember to check the corresponding requirement of the other equipment.

> 0.5 meter

Distance to magnetic compass

> 0.3 meter

Table 6 Antenna Safe Distance

The antenna is designed to provide satellite coverage even when the vessel has pitch and roll movements up to 15°. To maintain this coverage the antenna should be free from obstructions in the area down to 15° below the horizon (see Figure 13). Since this may not be possible in the fore and aft directions of the vessel, the clear area can be reduced to 5° below the horizon in the fore and aft directions and 15° below the horizon in the port and starboard directions. Any compromise in this recommendation could degrade performance.

Obstructions should be below these lines

Figure 13 Viewing Angle to the Horizon

If an obstruction such as a pole or a funnel is unavoidable, the Transceiver must be positioned in such a location that the obstruction covers no more than a 2° arc along the horizon. To calculate the minimum distance, use the following formula:

Safe distance = 29 * Diameter of obstruction

Example:

Obstruction is a 4" pole (Diameter = 0.1 m) Safe distance is 29 * 0.1 m = 2.9 m

4.3.3 SAFETY DISTANCE FOR ANTENNA UNITS

When transmitting, the electromagnetic field radiated from the antenna can be harmful. To avoid danger, keep a distance of 1 ft. (30 cm.) from the transceiver. To be sure that this distance is respected, the TT-3026C mini- C Transceiver is provided with a label declaring a minimum safety distance of 1 ft. (30 cm.) on the antenna.

The relation between the power intensity and distance is as follows:

4.3.4 WIRING THE TT-3026C MINI-C TRANSCEIVER

The TT-3026C must be connected to the TT-3616C GMDSS Interconnection Box by use of a special cable delivered with the system. There are 4 lengths of connecting cables available from T&T: 5m, 10m, 20m and 50m (refer to section 2.10 for option numbers). Refer to Appendix B to get information about the individual signals found in the cable.

4.3.5 GROUNDING

Make sure that the shield of the cable is connected to a proper ground, i.e. the ship’s structure / hull via the cable relief bracket found in the TT-3616C GMDSS Interconnection Box. This is very important in order to safely bypass interference from Radar, VHF/MF/HF radio equipment and other environmental noise sources (see Figure 23and Figure

24).

4.3.6

POWER CONNECTION

The power connections of the TT-3026C consist of 4 wires (two red and two black). All 4 wires MUST be used (see Figure 25).

37/97

TT-3000E mini-C GMDSS System

Installation Manual

The power connection input is floating (i.e., there is no galvanic connection from DC+ and DC- to the connector housing = GND = cable shield).

4.3.7 POWER REQUIREMENTS

The TT-3026C mini-C transceiver is designed to operate on floating DC in the nominal range 12V to 24V, which makes an AC/DC converter needed, in case the system is to work in an AC environment. In case an AC/DC converter is used, please make sure to leave the output of the AC/DC converter floating, i.e. do NOT connect the negative wire to ships structure. The transceiver has an actual working voltage range of 10.5V to 32V to accommodate power supply variations outside the nominal range. Note: In case a 50 meter transceiver cable is used (Opt. 946), the minimum supply voltage measured at the TT- 3616C terminals must be 16VDC.

4.3.8 GENERAL PURPOSE I/O PORTS

The TT-3026C mini-C Transceiver also contain two configurable input/output ports available to the user via the TT-3616C GMDSS Interconnection Box. They are named I/O 5 and I/O6.

When used as outputs, the ports have the following characteristics:

Open collector output.

Internal 2.2kOhm pull-up resistor to 3.3VDC.

Voltage allowed between GND and the output pin is 0V to 5V.

Maximum current into the I/O pin is 25mA.

When used as inputs, the ports have the following characteristics:

Internal 2.2kOhm pull-up resistor to 3.3VDC.

To guarantee a logic low input signal, the input voltage must be < 0.5V.

38/97

TT-3000E mini-C GMDSS System

Installation Manual

To guarantee a logic high input signal, the input voltage must be >3V.

Voltage allowed between GND and the input pin is 0V to 5V.

WARNING: When using the I/O ports, it is important not to apply voltages between GND and the I/O pin higher than 5 VDC as this can cause damage to the transceiver. Negative voltages are not allowed either.

Figure 18 Drill template. All measures in mm.

The best grounding is made by screwing the chassis directly on to the ships structure (provided it’s made of metal). If proper grounding can not be made this way, then connect the pre-mounted grounding wire to the ships structure. Find an appropriate location as close as possible to the TT-3616C and shorten the grounding wire accordingly. Terminate the grounding wire with the yellow ring terminal found in the accessory kit.

The correct (pre-mounted) position of the grounding wire is shown in Figure 19.

Figure 39 TT-3608A Paper Roll Stand

A roll paper stand is available for the TT-3608A Hard Copy

Printer. This enables the printer to signal an advanced warning of a paper low condition, when the paper roll is almost empty. The printer continues to work, and "Printer almost out of paper" message is displayed by the message terminal. When a "Printer almost out of paper" condition occur the audio alarm will sound and the fault indication on any connected alarm panel will be switched on - these indications

continues until the paper roll is replaced.

If the printer is set off-line using the "select" button or

powered off using the power switch, the audio alarm and the

fault indication in the alarm panels will be switched on.

The DIP switch 8 “ROLL PAPER STAND” in the printer, must be set to OFF, which selects roll paper stand, and the roll paper stand connector must be attached to the back of the printer
