When planning the system installation of a Transmitter with an external antenna, Primex recommends taking into consideration the below guidelines. Location is extremely important to ensure the best operation of your system.
Prior to installation and to assure optimum performance of the system, it's recommended a site survey is completed by Primex. The site survey includes an analysis and recommendation of the installation location of the system components and ground plan omnidirectional antenna.
Attach and fasten the antenna channel side base to the top of the 1 inch rigid galvanized conduit section.
Use a 1/2 inch wrench to tighten the nuts on both of the U-bolts, both evenly and securely. To ensure it's secure, tighten the second nut to the first nut.
There are three available mounting methods. Installation is dependent upon the mounting kit supplied with the system.
Mounting the antenna mast may require two people.
A GPS Receiver is required when a Transmitter is set to use GPS as its time source.
The switch preferences are located on the back side of the 14000 Series Transmitter. The switches set the Time Zone, channel number, 12- or 24-hour display, and the observance of Daylight Saving Time. The Transmitter continually checks the position of the switches.
