  1. 1. Data Concentrator and CommunicatorInstallation Guide Introduction The Data Concentrator and Communicator (DCC) is installed at the submetering site’s head-end location to collect data from the transmitters using the FA403 receiver. It can communicate with the Read/Bill/Collect service using a modem, or with an onsite technician’s computer using a serial port. This allows the service technician to easily make changes to the site information in the DCC, as well as to perform site data entry, data retrieval and trouble-shooting.

Using the anchors and screws provided, mount the FA403 in a building where the temperature will remain within 32° to 140°F (0° to 60°C), non-condensing • Typically, the higher the FA403 is mounted, the better the RF reception. The FA403 is generally mounted at a height of six to seven feet.Caution: Neither the FA403 or the DCC should ever be installed at floor level. 2. Using the anchors and screws provided, mount the DCC within 100 feet of the FA403, in a location near phone lines and a standard 120 VAC wall outlet. 3. Connect the FA403 to the DCC using 4-conductor, 22 gauge, unshielded wire with a maximum length of 100 feet. 4. Connect the phone line from the screw terminals on a hardwired wall bracket to the terminal blocks on the DCC. • The phone line should be connected to the telephone wall outlet using the screw terminals. The RJ11 plug-in phone connector is provided for easy access to the phone line during future on-site maintenance. 5. Use 18 or 20-guage wire to connect 14 VAC power to the DCC with the provided transformer. • Circuit protection is built into the DCC. There is no need for any additional power strip protection. 6. Use the provided screw to secure the transformer to the outlet.Note: Telephone and power connections should be as mechanically robust as possible, and protected from accidental disconnection.Caution: Wiring should exit through the back of the DCC, be cut to length, and stapled neatly to the wall to reduce the possibility of personal injury or equipment damage.2 © 2004 Inovonics Wireless- Document #02962 C
