WASTE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (hereinafter referred to as
the “WEEE directive”) places an obligation on EU-based manufacturers, distributors,
retailers and importers to take-back electronics products at the end of their useful life.
A sister directive, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) complements the
WEEE directive by banning the presence of specific hazardous substances in the
products at the design phase. The WEEE directive covers all VERIPOS products
imported into the EU as of August 13, 2005. EU-based manufacturers, distributors,
retailers and importers are obliged to finance the costs of recovery from municipal
collection points, reuse, and recycling of specified percentages per the requirements
contained in the WEEE Directive.
Instructions for disposal of WEEE by users in the European Union.
Products which have the undernoted symbol located on either the product itself or its
packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with other waste.
Instead, it is the user’s responsibility to dispose of the product by handing it over to a
designated collection point for the recycling of WEEE. The symbol shown below is on
the product or on its packaging, which indicates that this product must not be disposed
of with other waste. Instead, it is the user’s responsibility to dispose of their waste
equipment by handing it over to a designated collection point for the recycling of waste
electrical and electronic equipment.
The separate collection and recycling of your WEEE at the time of disposal will help to
conserve natural resources and ensure that it is recycled in a manner that protects
human health and the environment. For more information about recycling centres,
please contact the local city office, the household waste disposal service or the product
supplier.

Times LMR 400
This cable is recommended for the main cable run to the antenna. The main run
should be a single cable, joins are not recommended. If possible, measure the cable
run and order a pre-terminated cable. These have proved to be more reliable in
service.
The use of LMR-400-DB (direct burial) cable is recommended as this contains a
water-block, which will prevent water from contaminating the whole cable if the
casing is accidentally cut.
See the Reference information chapter for detailed specifications of the
Times LMR 400 coaxial cable.
2.3.2.2
Times LMR 240
This cable is recommended for use for short runs and is the cable used with our preterminated tails for use with mast-head antennas and below decks equipment.

Please refer to Reference Information Chapter to get information regarding
legacy antennas.
3.2.2 GNSS Antenna
The GNSS antenna receives transmissions from GPS and (optionally)
GLONASS satellites.
This section describes best practice when positioning and installing your
GNSS antenna.
For more details please refer to VERIPOS document “Antenna & Coaxial
Cable Installation Guide” provided as part of the installation documentation.
3.2.2.1
General
The GNSS antenna is used for vessel positioning and therefore its mounting
location is of high importance to the system.
It should be mounted high on the mast with a clear view of the sky in both the
horizontal and vertical directions.
If the antenna does not have a full view of the sky there will be times when signals
will be blocked, resulting in degraded performance of the system.
Rev No:

Page 27
Procedure Title:
File Ref.:
LD5 Installation Manual
AB-V-MA-00540
During installation observe the following guidelines:

Offsets to the GNSS antennas must be measured by a competent person to ensure
no errors are introduced to the DP, Survey or Navigation systems

Care must be taken to ensure that antennas are not installed in the direct path of
Radar transmissions, Inmarsat-B Dome transmissions, VSAT transmissions or high
power HF whip/wire antenna.
If antennas cannot be installed directly at the top of the mast/ships structure, it is
essential that the mounting point is sufficiently strong for this purpose.
Arrangements must be able to withstand vibration and wind.
Alternatively a pole can be used with a 5/8"x11 UNC threaded end (standard marine
mount). The pole can be attached by welding or using “U” clamps as above. This
Rev No:
B4
Page 28
Procedure Title:
File Ref.:

AB-V-MA-00540
method allows the GNSS antenna to be mounted without the need for the bracket.
Ensure that grease is applied to the threads when installing the antenna.
Fit the antenna to the bracket and clamp the bracket to the mounting pole or the
mast using “U”-bolts. When mounting the antenna on an extension pole fit the
antenna to the pole first for ease of handling at height.
If the threaded pole is already installed up the mast, use a small length of coaxial
cable attached to the N-type connector as a safety lanyard for the antenna.
Carefully connect the coaxial cable following manufacturers’ guidelines.
Form cable below the antenna into a small loop, approximately150–220 mm (6 to
8in) in diameter. Attach the loop to the mounting pole under the antenna to provide
strain relief from the cable.
For more detailed guidance please refer to the VERIPOS document “Antenna and
Coaxial Cable Installation Guide”.

3.2.3 L-Band Antenna
Use with the LD5 with suitable variants. Contact Veripos for advice and guidance
where required.
Figure 15. L-Band antenna
The omni-directional Spotbeam antenna must be positioned with a clear view of the
sky. Signals received by this antenna come from geostationary satellites. If the
antenna is blocked by any part of the vessel e.g. mast, derrick or any other
structure/antenna it may lose signal on certain vessel headings, resulting in
degraded performance of the system.
The L-Band antenna receives VERIPOS correction data from geostationary satellite
transmissions. Installation guidance is similar to that for siting the GNSS antenna.
Take care when siting to avoid areas where part of the vessel structure or another
antenna could partially mask the antenna's view of the sky.
For a more detailed guide to siting, please refer to the VERIPOS “Antenna and
Coaxial Cable Installation Guide” which is provided with equipment.
3.2.3.1
Interface to vessel communication system (Inmarsat)
This section describes the way in which a vessel communication system such as
Inmarsat may be incorporated with the antennas to the LD5, for provision of
VERIPOS corrections.
Refer to the ‘Scope of Supply’ and ‘Equipment Packing List’ documentation for
details where variants make use of this way of delivering L-Band correction signals
to the LD5.
Where a vessel is fitted with an Inmarsat Communications system this may be used
to receive the VERIPOS L-Band correction signals, in place of an omni-directional
(SPOT) antenna
Rev No:
B4
Page 30
Procedure Title:
File Ref.:
LD5 Installation Manual
AB-V-MA-00540
Considerations:

The Inmarsat Communications system uses a high gain steerable dish antenna. It
can receive low power transmissions from the satellite.

The Inmarsat narrow beam dish antenna is generally less vulnerable to interference.
However it may be prone to signal blockage when mounted lower on a vessel
superstructure.

Different Inmarsat Communications systems use different communication satellites.
For example:
- Fleet 55 or 77 use AORE, AORW, POR and IOR
- Fleet Broadband use 25E, 143.5E and 98W.
When interfacing an LD5 to Inmarsat equipment the VERIPOS L-Band input is
connected to the Inmarsat on - board.
Some Inmarsat models – e.g. Fleet 77 – have a dedicated output (usually labelled
“DGPS output”). This is used to make a direct connection to the VERIPOS L-Band
input.
Where a dedicated output is not present a directional coupler can be inserted
between the Inmarsat antenna (dome) cable and the Inmarsat ONBOARD to
provide an output for the LD5.

Procedure for disabling L-Band voltage
The voltage on the L-Band antenna can be turned off using the LD5 MMI.
Follow instructions in the LD5 Operation manual to disable voltage output in Software.
3.2.4 MF Beacon Antenna
Where applicable, the installation of an MF – capable antenna is determined by the
use of an MF receiver card. Please refer to the LD5 variant to determine MF
capability. Typically, LD5 A3.
This section provides guidance on the installation of an MF Beacon Antenna.


The MF antenna supplied may be a V86 antenna, identical to the L-Band antenna.
However for use with MF only the antenna mounting requirements are different from
an L-Band antenna.

The antenna must be fitted with clearance from bulkheads and major metal
structures

For MF use only it need not be mounted as high as other antennas as it does not
require line of sight to the MF Beacon signal source.

The antenna is supplied with an angle bracket and U-bolts for mounting.

The antenna mounting point has a 5/8”x11 UNC thread. As a result a mounting pole
can be used with the antenna if desired.
3.3
COAXIAL CABLE INSTALLATION
VERIPOS recommend and supply pre-terminated LMR coaxial cables as they give
the best performance in permanent installations. Label each cable carefully at top
and bottom identifying the antenna attached.
3.3.1 Maximum recommended cable lengths
The signals received by the antennas will deteriorate at different rates as they are
transmitted through coaxial cable. As a result VERIPOS recommend a maximum
cable length.
The following table details the maximum length for each signal type.

3.3.2 General
VERIPOS recommended cable for the antenna runs is LMR 400
Terminated tails of LMR 240 are used at either end for ease of attachment to
hardware.
Figure 19. Terminated tails of LMR 240
When running multiple coaxial cables VERIPOS recommend labelling to ensure
cables are attached to the correct antennas and equipment. Survey the route of the
antenna cabling to ensure:
1. The total length of the cable run does not exceed the supplied cable length for
this installation. Contact your supplier or VERIPOS if this is the case.
2. The cable does not cross or run parallel with any single phase or three phase
mains cable (110 VAC, 220 VAC or 440 VAC) or any high power RF cables leading
to transmitting devices such as Inmarsat B and VSAT domes.
3. The cable avoids fluorescent lights.
4. A support wire is used where the cable run has to cross a free space and does
not rely solely on cable ties for support.
5. Sufficient space is available in the selected cable entry through the bulk head for
the connectors to pass through without damage. If the connector cannot pass
through the cable entry it may be necessary to cut the connector off and reterminate once the cable has been passed through.
6. The cable is not pinched.
7. The route is free from all burrs or sharp edges that could damage the cable
jacket.

8. All connectors and couplers are properly sealed from the environment with
self-amalgamating tape and electrical tape.
9. Stress loops are fitted to prevent excess force on the connectors, in particular
the antenna connectors.
10. The minimum bend radius for the cable is not exceeded.
Once cables are in place seal all connections with self-amalgamating tape for
protection against the marine environment.

Typically shipment will include coaxial tails for attaching the antennas to the rear of
the LD5.
The location of the rack must be selected using the same criteria as previously
described for the LD5, with particular consideration for ventilation and access.
Before securing the rack base plate check that the LD5 rear connectors and
switches are easily accessible in the chosen location.
Ventilation slots and apertures must not be obscured.
Earth connection on the rear of the LD5 must be connected to ship’s ground.
The rack frame and base plate should be individually grounded.
Power supply for the units should be taken from a clean-power source as detailed in
the ‘Scope of Supply’ or ‘Equipment Packing List’ documentation. Typically this is
derived from an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).
To prevent problems of interference or increased heat dissipation, no additional
equipment should be mounted in this rack without first consulting VERIPOS.

The soldering iron should be set to a high heat setting and tinned before being
applied to the centre pin. The application of heat should be done care- fully since too
little will result in a poorly soldered joint, which will adversely affect performance, and
applying too much will melt the dielectric.
