Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)


Note – For detailed information about ESD, refer to the Trimble Service Provider Reference Manual
(P/N 022480-068).

The SNRx10 is constructed in an ESD-protected environment. Most of the semiconductor devices in


the instrument are susceptible to ESD damage.
ESD is generated in many ways.
For example, it can be the result of simple contact, the separation of materials, or the normal motion
of people working with the device. Depending on the magnitude of the charge, device substrates can
be punctured or destroyed by contact with, or by mere proximity to, a static charge. The result can be
immediate destruction, early failure of the device, or degradation of device performance.
To prevent static damage or destruction:
• Take adequate precautions when you handle or service equipment that contains static-
sensitive devices.
• Only attempt to service the circuitry in a static-sensitive device if you are thoroughly familiar
with industry-accepted techniques for handling such devices.
• Always take adequate measures to prevent the buildup of static charge on work surfaces and
on persons handling the radio.

The RoHS initiative


In July 2006, the European Union restricted the hazardous material content within new products
being sold. Primarily this was an effort to reduce lead within products. Many parts within electronic
devices contain lead, such as solder on PC boards and lead inside IC's. After the RoHS
implementation, manufacturers were required to use alternate materials and soldering methods.
Products that were sold before the July 2006 date, have been grand-fathered in, and are not subject to
RoHS. Service parts specifically for these products containing lead are permitted as well. Only newly
created products intended for sale after the July 2006 date are subject to RoHS.

What RoHS means to Trimble


Trimble has made the commitment to create all new GPS products as lead free and certified RoHS
compliant. This includes older products which have been selling prior to RoHS. You will start to see
many of the older products converted into RoHS compliant versions. Even though these are older
products and it is not required, it is an extremely worthwhile endeavour.

What RoHS means to Service


There are several very complex issues around the RoHS initiative. The Service Provider must
understand and follow these rules:
• Only lead free solder may be used on RoHS compliant products. Most GPS Service Providers
have been using Silver solder for several years (AG/SN). Make sure you ONLY use Silver
solder for ANY GPS products.
• Parts meant for non RoHS products must NOT be used on RoHS products. Use only those
parts shown in the part list for a specific product.
• Parts meant for a RoHS product may not be compatible with a non RoHS product. Use only
those parts shown in the part list for a specific product. If the part works in both products, the
part list will state that.
• Radio doors, radio boards, and Bluetooth® boards pose special problems as they must also
pass type approval. Some parts may not be used in other products due to non compliance with
Country regulations. Use only those parts shown in the part list for a specific product.
• Within the part lists, the general rule to identify whether a product is RoHS compliant or not
is to look at the short name. For instance, NetRS and R8GNSS are non-compliant receivers.
NetRS and R8GNSSR are RoHS compliant (shown by the last letter R).
• It is highly recommended that Service Providers have separate inventory location for lead and
lead free parts. This might mean a different cabinet or shelf. It is also highly recommended
to have RoHS labels available to attach to the individual part. Green dots are a good solution
and will help to quickly identify RoHS compliant parts.
• RoHS service parts will be a phase in process for non RoHS products. Use the original part
defined for the non RoHS product first. Once these parts are consumed, the new RoHS part

SNRx10 Page 6 P/N 59646-SVC, Revision B


Service Manual
Chapter 1
F General Information and Safety

will phase in as long as it is FULLY backwards compatible. The old part numbers will then
be inactivated. Please, ALWAYS refer to the latest part list.
• RoHS compliant PC boards may be identified by the PB symbol.
• In mid 2007, China will launch its own RoHS initiative. The products that have been certified
as RoHS compliant will comply with specific country regulations.
• Service parts are defined as:
– SPR (Service Part Red) which is allowed in the EU to service an existing product
– SPG (Service Part Green) which conforms to RoHS.
– Those parts used within a product to repair or upgrade a unit’s performance. External
cables, accessories, and so on are not considered service parts.
The SNRx10 Radio Modem was designed to be RoHS compliant. The service parts list is located in
Sales Parts, page 105.

Operational Overview
The SNRx10 radio modem series completes the system component modernization of the GCS900
Grade Control System. It is designed to be backward compatible with SNR900, SNR2400 and SN450
radios. It is compatible with both the V6.xx and V10.xx GCS900 Operating Systems found on the
Display Controller within the customers system. This radio series uses the traditional 8-Pin Bendix
connector which plugs into the existing radio cable in the wiring harness. The radio communicates in
the system harness via the CAN bus protocol.
The SNRx10 radio modem series is designed so both the 900MHz and 450MhZ models can receive
CMR packets from a nearby Base. The 2.4GHz radio is used for communication with our Advanced
Tracking Sensor products.

Different Radio Models Available


Due to the demand for different UHF radio requirements within different countries, Trimble has
designed the SNRx10 radio modem series to be available with either one single radio frequency band
or with a dual radio band option, all within the same housing
At the time of this release, the following models are available:
Note – Country Codes on the SNR series are set when the final part number of the unit is set during
manufacturing. Since this is a receive (RX) only product the country code on the SNR does not need
to be matched to the country code of the Base. The SNR is designed to accept incoming signal from
any country code. Therefor you cannot change the country code in the field and there is simply no
reason to do so.

Mechanical
Mechanically the SNRx10 radio modem series is designed to meet the high vibration requirements
of the Machine Control and Construction industries. It’s rugged housing was designed to
accommodate up to two different radio modules. The series can be ordered with just a single 2.4GHz,
900MHz or 450MHz radio module or the 2.4GHz radio module can be paired with either the 900MHz
or one of three 450MHz radio modules. The 450 series 63127-xx-24 comes equipped with an
inactivated 2.4GHz radio module pre-installed. The customer can either order a dual radio and have
it activated at time of purchase or pay an upgrade fee and have the option code for the 2.4GHz radio
enabled later. Without the option being turned on the radio acts as a single 450MHz series radio. The
450MHz and 900MHz radios are mutually exclusive and cannot be combined into the same housing.
The 900MHz and 2.4GHz radios use the same whip antenna while the 450MHz series uses two
different whip antennas. The 2.4GHz radio module is always installed on the left side of the radio
(when viewed from the front) and either the 900MHz or a 450MHz radio module will be mounted
internally on the right side, as shown here:

Fig. 3-5 Front view of a Dual SNRx10 series radio showing whip antenna location

Note – The connector jack on the radio for the 900MHz models use a standard TNC jack, the
450MHzmodel series uses a reverse polarity TNC connector. This means the center conductor pin is
male.

Circuit Boards
Digital Board P/N 56889-00S:
The digital processor board assembly contains the memory that stores all of the programmed
information, including firmware, Electronic Serial Number (ESN) and configuration options. The
board also controls the flow of all I/O data that runs through the I/O panel assembly. Radio frequency
settings, modem parameters and defaults are all held in non-volatile memory. The 2.4GHz radio
modules plug directly into the digital board. The 4xxMHz series radio module use a mounting bracket
and adaptor board to interface to the digital board. The 900MHz radio module board just uses a
special mounting bracket so it can be aligned properly to plug into the digital board. The power supply
board plugs into the digital board by a 40 pin tower adaptor.
Radio Modem Boards
The 900MHz radio module (P/N 53195-01)Sis designed and manufactured by Trimble Navigation.
The 2.4GHz radio module (P/N 64327-00S) and the 4xxMHz series (P/N’s 60384 -62S, -64S, -66S)
radio modules are each designed exclusively for Trimble by separate OEM manufactures. The
4xxMHz radio modules are mounted on a carrier board (P/N 58585-00S) that interfaces to the digital
board. These reliable field proven radio modules have been used in previous Trimble designs such as
the SNR2400 and the SPSx5x radio series products.
I/O Panel Assembly P/N 59931-00S
The I/O panel board assembly is designed as a means to firmly mount the 8-Pin Bendix connector to
the top housing and provides built in PTC overvoltage protection and EMI noise suppression on the
data input/output lines from the digital board. GCS900 main system harness power is routed between
the ignition switch and enters the power supply board through the I/O panel assembly.
Power Supply Board 58480-00S
The power supply board generates multiple DC voltage outputs of 1.5V, 2.5V, 3.3V and 5.0V to the
various circuits on the PC boards found inside the SNRx10 . The power supply board does have over-
voltage protection.

General Troubleshooting
Always check the most obvious basic system level problems before investigating more complex
troubleshooting issues. Some tests should be performed by the customer or dealer within the
customers system before returning the radio in for repair:
1. Is the radio power cable plugged into the SNRx10 and the system ignition turned on?
2. Use a voltage meter to check that between 12VDC to 24VDC is coming out of Pins A and B
of the 8-Pin Bendix connector on the radio power cable of the customers construction
equipment. If there is no voltage could a system fuse be blown?
3. Check that the following radio settings are correct between the Base radio and the SNRx10:
– Network Channel between Base and Rover are the same.
– Baud Rate, Stop Bit and parity are the same.
– Radio Protocol is the same.
– The active radio setting on the SNRx10 matches the radio frequency of the Base. For
instance if you are interfacing a 2.4GHz radio but on your dual frequency SNRx10 the
active radio setting has been left set at for 900MHz radio the interface won’t work until
you change the active radio to be 2.4GHz.

To perform a physical inspection check for the following things:
• Cracked top or bottom housing
• Damaged pins or threads on the Bendix connector.
• Damaged TNC connectors.
• Damaged, loose or missing TNC covers on single radio models.
• Cracked or missing LCD pipe window.
• Signs of water damage externally and/or internally, if so, do not power UUT up.
• Shake unit and listen for anything loose inside, if there is, do not power UUT up.
• Note whether there are missing or damaged S/N and/or P/N labels.
If the UUT passes all of the inspections above it has passed the physical inspection. If the UUT has
not passed all of these tests make a note of which ones failed and repair them as needed when and if
repairs are performed.

Seal Integrity Test


For a complete description on setting up the Seal Integrity Test, see Seal Integrity Test, page 107.This
section assumes the kit itself is assembled and ready to use.
The Seal Integrity Test should be used as:
• Pre-Repair Qualification Test: This is a required test to see if the UUT is sealed properly
before starting a repair. If a UUT fails a pre-repair test, it should be determined whether
moisture could be inside and if it is then do not power the unit up.
• Post-Repair Qualification Test: A seal integrity test is always required as part of the final
test procedure. Make sure the UUT passes this test and that any failures in the pre-repair seal
integrity test have been fixed.
To perform a seal integrity test refer to Seal Integrity Test, page 59
As per the test, if the receiver remains sealed at both +5 psi and -5 psi each for 30 seconds or longer
without losing more then 1.0 cc of air, it has passed this test.

Retrieve/Restore Radio Diagnostic Information


Before starting a repair it is best practice to save or print out the radio diagnostic information for the
UUT so a permanent record of the original settings and channel frequency table are saved for future
reference. Use the radio interface cable and Winflash as per section Retrieve Radio Diagnostics
Information, page 98, which is shown again here:
1. In Winflash, highlight Retrieve Radio Diagnostics Information and then hit Enter.
2. Click on Save or Print to print out the customers current configuration and save it as a
reference. A print out will be sent to the default windows printer.

Voltage and Current Tests


Many service providers that currently repair the Sitenet series radio’s may have created this test cable
already. If you need to assemble this cable order the above parts and then follow the instructions in
Voltage Test Cable, page 129.

Preparing to Run the Tests


To run voltage and current tests efficiently it is recommend that a variable power supply is used with
the following minimum specifications:
• Min/Max Voltage Range: 0 - 40V DC or higher.
• Minimum Current: 3A or higher
• Digital Display for both voltage and current readings.

A radio voltage test/interface cable with a power input is also required to perform these tests. An 8-
Pin Bendix to Lemo adaptor along with one of the following radio cables (these are Sales parts, not
Service parts) will need to modified for this test:
• 40282-01: Cable - Radio, 1ft., 0 shell 7-pin LM(F) to 8-pin BD(F)
• 59044: Cable - 1.5m, DB9(F) Y to 0S/7-pin LM(M) to Power Jack (RoHS Compliant)
• OR 32345: Cable - 1.5m, DB9(F) Y to 0S/7-pin LM(M) to Power Jack (no longer sold, the
above part took its place but is backward compatible).
Once the test cable has been built prepare it for testing by doing the following:
• With the variable power supply turned off, plug the black banana jack into the ground
terminal of the variable power supply.
• Plug the red banana jack into the positive terminal of the variable power supply.
• Attach adaptor 40282-01 to the modified test cable if hasn’t been plugged in yet.
• Without plugging in the test cable to the UUT, turn on the variable power supply and set the
voltage to 12VDC. If the variable power supply has a current limit setting make sure it is set
to 3A or higher.
• Now set the power supply to standby or turn the power off until you begin running tests. From
this point forward as we describe the following tests, we will assume the power supply is set
at 12V DC, 3A or higher and in standby mode at the beginning of each test unless specified
otherwise.

Running the Tests


Voltage Input vs. Current Draw
The purpose of this test is to measure the current draw of the UUT when it is powered up at standard
GCS system voltages. If the current draw is within specification then the UUT has passed these tests.
To perform these tests follow these steps:
Current Draw at 12VDC:
1. Plug the 8-Pin Bendix cable into the SNRx10.
2. Turn the power supply on. If the current jumps like there’s a short then shut the power supply
off immediately. Otherwise proceed to the next step.
3. At 12VDC the current should be about 470ma +/- 15ma to pass this test
4. Place the power supply back to standby mode or shut it off.
Current Draw at 24VDC:
1. Turn the power supply on. If the current jumps like there’s a short then shut the power supply
off immediately. Otherwise proceed to the next step.
2. At 24VDC the current should be about 260ma +/- 15ma to pass this test.
3. For easy transition to the next test keep the variable power supply “on” and at 24VDC and
proceed to the next test.
Overvoltage Test
The purpose of this test is to ensure that the overvoltage protection circuit works on the SNRx10 and
whether the UUT recovers after the overvoltage source is lowered down to within the normal input
voltage range of 12-24VDC.
To test the overvoltage protection perform the following steps:
1. Turn the variable power supply voltage up to 32VDC. Slowly continue increasing the voltage
and observe the following:
1.1. The overvoltage protection circuit should kick in somewhere between 32.40 and
35.5VDC.
1.2. Now slowly lower the variable power supply voltage back down toward 32VDC. The
overvoltage protection circuit should turn off and the unit should power up again
somewhere between 32.4VDC and 24VDC. If the UUT’s overprotection circuit kicks
in within the specified voltage range above and recovers after the input voltage is
lowered back within normal input voltage range then the UUT has passed this test.
1.3. If overvoltage protection never kicks in or the UUT shorts out then turn off the variable
powers supply immediately. The UUT has failed this test and the power supply board
and/or front I/O panel should be troubleshot further.

F Performance Verification

Under voltage Test


The under voltage test checks to see how low the voltage can get before the SNRx10 shuts down. The
basic objective at that it shut down at a input voltage that is quite a bit lower then 12VDC, usually
starting at 9.25VDC or lower. Perform the following steps:
1. Starting at 12VDC, slowly turn the variable power supply downward and observe the
following:
1.1. The UTT shuts down at 9.25VDC or lower. Usually it shuts down at around 8.4VDC.
1.2. Once the UUT shuts down, turn the input voltage back up and observe that the UUT
powers up at approximately 8.70VDC +/- .50V. If the UUT powers down and then
powers up within this range then it has passed this test.

LED TEST
The purpose of this test is to ensure that the status LED on the front side of the radio is working and
not burn out. It’s simple to run this test:

1. Turn the variable power supply on to power up the UUT.


2. Make sure that the light pipe “lens” itself is not scuffed up or damaged, if it is, replaced the
light pipe as per Light pipe is installed, page 44
3. If the unit is not drawing normal current at 12 or 24VDC and the LED is not lit, this could
indicate a shorted power supply or other problem and the unit will require additional
troubleshooting.
4. If the LED lights up and remains solid, and the unit is actually powered up, then the
UUT has passed this test.
The LED will not remain solid if specific data communications occur such as when the radio is
receiving CMR packets. A more detailed documentation of different radio status, as specified by the
LED is located in Below is the same table as noted in Led Status Table:, page 28.

Serial Port Interface


The purpose of this test is to make sure that the RS232 serial port(s) are working on the UUT. The
current SNRX10 radio modem series has two serial ports and one CAN buss port. The firmware itself
identifies the serial ports as COM2 and COM3.
The test itself can be run using Hyperterminal as follows:
1. In Windows go to Start\All Programs\Accessories\Communications and click on
Hyperterminal. In the “New Connection” window enter the name Serial Port Test select an
Icon of your choice, click on Ok.
2. In the “Connect To” window use the drop down menu to select the COM port on your
computer that you will be using for this test and click Ok.
3. In the “Properties” window make the following settings:
– Bits Per Second (Baud rate): 38400
– Data Bits: 8
– Parity: 1
– Stop Bits: 1
– When all settings are complete click OK. The Hyperterminal window will come up.
Note – At this point the radio data test cable 40942-03 must be used because it has two
separate serial port cables labelled I/O and GPS. These cables are hard-wired specifically to
serial port 1 and serial port 2 of the SNRx10. As mentioned previously the SNRx10 firmware
identifies the serial ports as COM2 and COM3.

4. To test COM2, plug in the DB9 marked I/O on test cable 40942-03 into the COM port of your
computer. On your computer keyboard hit Cntrl and Break to send a query to the SNRx10. If
COM2 is working it will report back information about the UUT and mention COM2. If this
occurs then COM2 is working and has passed this test.
5. To test COM3, plug in the DB9 marked GPS on test cable 40942-03 into the COM port of
your computer. On your computer keyboard hit Cntrl and Break to send a query to the
SNRx10. If COM3 is working it will report back information about the UUT and mention
COM3 directly behind the any previous information sent to Hyperterminal such as COM2
from the previous step. If this occurs then COM3 is working and has passed this test.

CAN Bus Test


This test makes sure that the CAN Bus line between the digital board through the I/O port assembly
is working properly. The only real way to test CAN at the system level is by using the GCS Test Box
with GCS900 cable set: P/N 0690-1003 or by plugging the SNRx10 into a genuine GCS900 main
system harness that has been proven to work properly.
The following steps assume that a GCS Test Box system with GCS900 cables is being used for this
test:
1. Make sure the GCS Test Box is setup for a single or Dual MS980 or MS990 system including
the rooftop SN radio cable that comes in the kit (P/N 0395-9470-150.
2. On the CB430, go to the Setup Menu\Configuration\Diagnostics screen.
3. If a sitenet or other Trimble radio is already plugged into the harness unplug it and then plug
in the UUT. The SNRx10 radio should register as connected in the diagnostics screen as
shown here:

4. If the UUT reports as connected it proves that its CAN Bus is working.

Switch Active Radio


This test is for combination radio models only. Skip this test if the UUT is only a single radio
model. This test proves that both radio’s in a combination model are configured and can be
operational.
If the UUT is a 900MHz/2.4GHz or a 4xxMHz/2.4GHz model then perform the following steps to
make sure each radio can be selected for use:
1. Use Winflash as per Change Active Radio, page 100, if you can successfully switch back and
forth between the two radio’s then the UUT has passed this test.
1.1. If the 2.4GHz radio is not listed as a selection then it will need to be reactivated as per
Option Code to Activate 2.4GHz Radio, page 96
1.2. If the 900MHz or 450MHz radio does not appear as a selection then there may be a
problem with the radio model or overall part number configuration. Further
troubleshooting is required.
2. When this test is complete set the active radio back to whichever one the customer had
activated when the radio was received for repair as per the original diagnostic screen printout.

Compare S/N and P/N to Housing Labels


To be comprehensive during performance verification it is best practice to compare the part number
(P/N) and serial number (S/N) programmed inside the UUT with the external labels listed on the
outside of its housing to make sure that they match each other as well as the SWO or RMA that is

being repaired. To do this simply use Winflash to run Diagnostics as per Retrieve Radio Diagnostics
Information, page 98 and check the following:
1. Check that the P/N matches the part number label on the housing and the SWO.
2. Check that the S/N matches the one on the housing and the SWO.
3. If all of these match then the UUT has passed this test.
– If the P/N or S/N does not match the housing determine if you programmed the unit
incorrectly. If the UUT does not match the SWO or RMA then did the paperwork get
matched with the incorrect unit?

GCS Test Box: Radio System Bench Test


A system bench test can only be performed by using the GCS Test Box with GCS900 cable set
(P/N 0690-1003) or by plugging the SNRx10 into a genuine GCS900 main harness found on a
construction vehicle that has been proven to work properly.
The following steps assume that a GCS Test Box system with GCS900 cables is set up as follows:
1. Set up the GCS Test Box with GCS900 cable set as per the GCS Test Box Instructions and
Service Manual (P/N 0690-1010).
2. The test system should already have a working Sitenet or SNRx10 radio in it and be receiving
CMR packets from a Base in the repair shop and this should be shown as an Amber Led Radio
Light flashing at 1Hz on an MS990 or MS980 as outlined in Chapter 8, page - 127 - 128 of
the MS990 service manual.(P/N 55760-SVC Rev A) and in Chapter 8, page114 - 116 of the
MS980 service manual (P/N 47950-SVC, Rev B).
3. Match the network ID of the UUT to the network ID of the Base that is transmitting the CMR
packets by using Winflash or the Machine Radio Configuration utility found under the
Setup:Installation menu of the CB430.
4. Plug the UUT into the radio test cable coming from “Rooftop 1” or “Rooftop 2” on the GCS
Test Box.
5. Observe on the MS990MS980 that the radio light begins flashing at 1Hz, if it does the UUT
has passed this test.
Note – If a service provider does not have a Radio Throughput Test Kit Model II (P/N 65306-
00S) then this GCS Test Box System Test is the minimal required test that can be done in the
repair shop at the workbench to verify that the radio can receive CMR packets.

Radio Throughput Test


Trimble Service Technologies is developing a test kit called the Radio Throughput Test Kit Model II
that can be used to measure the packet throughput performance of all current Trimble radio products
at the test bench. By using a combination of fixed attenuators along with a variable one, the need to
perform a baseline test out in the field by placing the UUT a certain distance away from the base so
that it is in the “fringe area” of operation is replaced by using the attenuators to degrade the signal
enough so that it duplicates as if the radio is physically placed in the “fringe area”.

Radio Throughput Test Kit Model II is still under development and will allow throughput testing of
2.4GHz, 900MHz and 4xxMHz Trimble radio products. The only radio throughput test available for
SNRx10 radio-modem products at this time is for the 2.4GHz radio by using our previous Radio
Throughput Test Kit (P/N 58829-00S) that was developed for testing the SNR2400 radio. This test
kit can be setup to use the SNR2400 as a Base and an SNR2410 as a Rover.
Note – General recommendations: If you already have radio throughput test kit P/N 58829-00S then
go ahead and use it for a throughput test as noted below If you do not have this kit yet then we
recommend that you follow the GCS Test Box system level test as perGCS Test Box: Radio System
Bench Test, page 81and wait to purchase the Radio Throughput Test Kit, Model II. When this test kit
comes out it will allow our radio service providers to test all three radio frequencies: 2.4GHz,
900MHz and 4xxMHz,instead of just 2.4GHz.

Radio Throughput Test: SNR2400 Base + SNR2410 Rover


The SNR2400 radio is designed to interface with an ATS advanced tracking sensor and does not use
CMR™ packets for communication. Instead it is set to use ATS Interface protocol as the output. In
addition to this, this was Trimble’s first generation 2.4GHz radio module and the internal command
set is a bit different then our current 2.4GHz products. As a result, when using the SNR2400 as a
Base it requires a different throughput test utility to run the performance verification test.
To run the throughput test the following test software must be installed on the test computer:
• Wit2410Test.exe ver. 0.74
• SNR_Base.bat
• SNR_Rover.bat

Setting up the SNR2400 as a Base


The following assembly instructions are for the SNR2400 Radio Throughput Test Kit only, P/N
58829-00S.
Note – You cannot use the original Wit2410Test.exe ver 0.73 and it’s associated batch files when
running a throughput test with the SNR2410. You must use v.074 and the new batch files it comes
with.

1. Take one NMO to N adaptor and fasten it to the top of the SNR2400 and lightly tighten with
pliers.
2. Tighten one 50dB attenuator, one 10dB attenuator and one 3dB attenuator onto the N side of
the NMO to N adaptor on the SNR2400. A throughput test between an SNR2400 as a Base
and a an SNR2410 as a Rover requires approximately 113dB of attenuation.
3. Tighten a TNC to N adaptor onto the N connector of the 50dB attenuator from Step 2.
4. Fasten one end of the RF Cable onto the TNC connector (from Step 3) on the SNR2400.
5. Plug the AC adaptor into a power source and then plug it into the power jack on the RF
interface cable (40942-03).
6. Plug the DB9 cable marked GPS into COM1 on the test computer.
7. Plug the 8-Pin Bendix connector into the SNR2400 when you’re ready to start the test.
Setting up the SNRx2410 as a Rover (Customer’s UUT)

1. If this is a dual radio product you must first set up the 2.4GHz radio as the active radio using
Winflash. Refer to section Change Active Radio, page 100
2. Use Winflash to change the Radio Protocol to ATS as per section Change Radio Protocol,
page 98
3. Tighten the second 50db attenuator onto the other end of the RF cable.
4. Screw the TNC to N Reverse Polarity adaptor into the 50dB attenuator
5. Fasten the TNC end of the adaptor onto the 2.4GHz TNC RF jack on the SNR2410.

Note – You must activate the batch files in the order shown here or it will lock up your computer.

1. Dial in 113 dB of attenuation on the variable attenuator.


2. Double-click on the SNR_Rover.bat file. Observe that the following takes place in the Rover
DOS Window Figure 8-3:
– Opening COM2: The default serial port is set to COM2 in SNR_Rover.bat file.
Whichever COM port is set in the batch file should be reported here.
– Product ID String: The UUT should be identified as the SNR2410 here. If it is not the
Base may be plugged into COM2 instead of the Rover.
– Setup complete, running: This should be reported once communication is established.

Whichever COM port is set in the batch file should be reported here.
– Product ID String: The SNR2400 should be identified as the product here. If it is not
the Rover may be plugged into COM1 instead of the Base.
– Setup complete, running: This should be reported once communication is established.
You will then see some symbols appear an the screen as packets are sent.
– Once the Base Window is activated, other then verifying packets are being sent, this

Analysing the test results


Return to the Rover DOS Window and perform the following steps, see Figure 8-5, page88:
1. Allow the UUT to continue its throughput test for 10 minutes are at least 500 packets.
2. Observe the following:
– When the Rover drops a packet red “D’s” will be reported in the Rover DOS Window.
This is normal.
– Received # Packets: The number of packets sent/received in intervals of 50.
– Lost #: This is the overall number of packets lost since the test was started. Each time a
packet is lost it is counted here.
– Total # for %: The total number of packets sent since the test began and the overall
percentage of throughput packets since the test began. This part of the test should read
95% or higher after running the test for 10 minutes or at least 500 packets.
– Last # = %: This section tells the percentage of last batch of 50packets that passed the
throughput test. This contributes to the overall percentage passed since the test began.
Note – Although the recommended attenuation setting is 113dB this may vary by up to +/-
2dB. If your bench setup consistently has red “D’s” and never passes at 95% or the Rover
DOS Window always shuts down, you may need to dial in only 111 or 112 as the attenuation
setting for your workbench since 2.4GHz radio products have a dramatic cutoff point when
operating at the fringe. Try several known good units to arrive at your optimum attenuation
setting. Once it is established you should not have to change it during testing anymore.

Test Cables Needed


One or more of the following cables are needed in order to be able to interface Winflash to the test
computer: These are the same cables called out in Interfacing to a Computer, page 24 and Test Cables
Needed, page 71
• 40942-03 (QTY 1): Cable - Radio, 3ft., 8-pin BD(F) to TA3(M)/DB9(F)/DB9(F)
– With 62546 Power Supply, 60W, 18V, 3.4A, 100-240VAC
– and with 51695 Power Cable for the above charger
Note – This cable is also needed to run a radio throughput and is recommended over older
cables that serve the same purpose. USE the DB9 connector marked I/O when interfacing
with Winflash.

• 40282-01 (QTY 1): Cable - Radio, 1ft., 0 shell 7-pin LM(F) to 8-pin BD(F) can be used with
one of the following:
– 59044 (QTY 1): Cable - 1.5m, DB9(F) Y to 0S/7-pin LM(M) w/Power Jack (RoHS,
backward compatible with 32345)
– OR 32345 (QTY 1): Cable - 1.5m, DB9(F) Y to 0S/7-pin LM(M) w/Power Jack (non-

Configure Radio
In the Operation Selection window, highlight Configure Radio and then click on Next. The
Configure Radio Operation is used to set the radio’s network channel and in some cases, depending
on the model (2.4GHz), the country code setting.
Note – Country Codes on the SNR series are set when the final part number of the unit is set during
manufacturing. Since this is a receive (RX) only product the country code on the SNR does not need
to be matched to the country code of the Base. The SNR is designed to accept incoming signal from
any country code. Therefor you cannot change the country code in the field and there is simply no
reason to do so.

The Network Channel:


The network channel selected should match the Base’s network number. If Winflash was used to read
the customers configuration before repairs were started, match the network number to the customers
original settings.
The country setting designated by the part number of the product as follows:
• XXXXX-XX, for two section part numbers.
• XXXXX-XX-XX, for combo 900MHz/2.4GHz three section part numbers only.

Q Products and their seal integrity decay rates

Always ensure that a unit does not leak, both when it comes in and once it has been reassembled. To
check for leaks, use a Trimble Seal Integrity Test Kit (P/N 48848-00S). The kit provides a complete
vacuum and pressure leak detection system that includes a digital multimeter (DMM).
• If you connect the DMM to a test computer, the computer plots the mV reading from the
DMM:
– For vacuum you will see –5mV, which equates to –5 inches of Mercury (inHg).
– For pressure you will see +5mV, which equates to +5 inHg.
• If you use the DMM on its own, not connected to a test computer, you can read DC mV
directly from the DMM.
Whether you use the DMM connected to a test computer or on its own, the relative deviation should,
in most cases, be no more than 300 V/100 seconds. For allowable leak rates see Products and their
seal integrity decay rates.

Read this section if you are connecting the DMM to a test computer.

Hardware requirements
To run the Trimble Seal Integrity test, the test computer must have a physical RS-232 port (DB9).

Installing the DMM506 software


On a computer that is running a Windows 95, 98, 2000, or XP operating system:
1. Use the KillActiveSync program to turn off the Microsoft ActiveSync® Terminate Stay
Resident program.
2. In C:\ create a folder called DMM506 and then copy the file called pd506.zip into the folder.
3. Extract the files to the same folder.
4. Run the SETUP.EXE file.

Setting up communication
To set up communication between the computer and the DMM:
1. Run the DMM506.EXE file.
2. Plug the PV350 into the common (-) and volt (+) terminals.
You may need to install the 9 V battery in the PV350: see the instruction sheet from the
manufacturer which describes how to install the battery.
3. Select the mV scale on the DMM. You may need to install the 9 V battery in the DMM: see
the instruction sheet.
4. Connect one end of the RS-232 cable to the DMM and the other end to an RS-232 port on the
computer.
5. Turn on the DMM.
6. Turn the PV350 by sliding the switch to the cmHg / Hg position.
7. Press the Menu button on the DMM several times until the RS-232 in the display blinks. Press
the Return button on the DMM.
8. On the computer:

Testing vacuum

C Caution – Most Trimble products are tested with vacuum only. Using pressure could damage
seals within the product as they were not designed to withstand it. Under no circumstances should
you allow vacuum or pressure to exceed ±5 inch Mercury (inHg).

To test vacuum:
1. Ensure that the test kit is working properly. See Assembling the Trimble Seal Integrity Kit.
2. Once you are sure that the test kit is working properly, test the device. See Vacuum testing
the device.

Acquisition screens
The following figures show actual acquisition screens on a test computer. If you are using only a
voltmeter, you will read -5mV for vacuum or +5mV for pressure. After 100 seconds, the value must
not change more than 300 V unless a lower tolerance is stated for the product.
• For vacuum this would mean that after 100 seconds, the voltmeter would show no further
positive increase than -4.7 mV.
• For pressure this would mean that after 100 seconds, the voltmeter would show no further
decrease than +4.7 mV.
The following figure shows the vacuum values during vacuum acquisition.

C Caution – The Trimble Seal Integrity test is highly sensitive to cell phone and radio transmissions.
If you do not eliminate such transmissions, the graph will show erratic values.

Vacuum testing the Seal Integrity Test Kit


Note – Turn on the PV350 at least three minutes before you run the Seal Integrity test. This allows
time for the circuits to stabilize

1. The O-ring must be installed on the adaptor before you test vacuum.
2. Install the 10-32 brass nut onto the vacuum adaptor.
3. Make sure that the hand pump is in Vacuum mode. Pull the trigger while watching the
voltmeter display. Do not exceed -5 mV.
4. Make sure that the PV350 is set to the cmHg/inHg setting.
5. Use Explorer to navigate to the folder you created and then double click DMM506.exe to
launch the program.
6. Activate communication between the computer and the DMM. See Setting up
communication.

C Caution – Make sure that the DMM is set to “Don't turn off” mode. Otherwise it will shut off and
lose communication with the computer.

7. On the PV350, adjust the Zero potentiometer until the mV reading on the DMM is as close
to zero as possible.
8. On the computer, click the Graph-Display button.
Two screens show details of the DMM:
8.1. Protek506 is displayed at the top of the value screen. Move the value screen to the left.
8.2. Move the graph screen to the right, and position the two screens side by side.
9. On the graph screen:
9.1. In the Vertical higher limit field, enter 0.
9.2. In the Vertical lower limit field, enter –6.
9.3. Press the OK button.
9.4. Set Vertical scaling factor to m (x 1E-3).
9.5. Set Magn (magnification factor) to 1:1. Time/Div will be 10.0 seconds. This will display
100 seconds across the entire screen (10 divisions at 10 s per division).
10. Pull the hand pump trigger slightly. Check the displays. If the reading goes past -6mV, relieve
some of the vacuum until the reading is at or slightly below -5mV.
11. Wait at least two minutes and then observe the vacuum loss over 100 seconds.
– There should be no large positive and negative fluctuations.
– There should be no appreciable vacuum loss over 100 seconds. Maximum decay rate is
300 µV (0.3 inch Mercury) over 100 seconds. Some products, such as the TSCe
controller, have a decay rate of 1 inch Mercury over 5 seconds, which means that after
25 seconds they will be at atmosphere. Other products differ.
12. Press the reset buttons (see the figure on page 119) as follows:
– On the graph screen, press the Reset button.
– On the main screen, press the Auto button and the three reset buttons to the right of it.
This resets all values.
If a leak is detected, check the O-ring seal, tubing connections, and Teflon tape connections.

Vacuum testing the device


By using the brass cap on the adaptor, and the vacuum test, you have proved that the Seal Integrity
Test Kit is working properly.
1. To test the device, connect the vacuum adaptor to the unit:
1.1. Remove the brass cap from the vacuum adaptor.
1.2. Install the adaptor into the seal port of the unit and tighten by hand.
1.3. If the unit has a vent hole, install a piece of Kapton tape over the vent hole to seal it.
2. If large fluctuations occur, but the average is fairly constant, change the sample rate to 1
sample for every 2 seconds. (Type in 2 seconds.) This setting will smooth the transitions.
– If results show a fairly flat line, with fluctuations of about 100 µV, wait 100 seconds. If
the displayed mV changes less than 300 uV for the relative delta, the unit has passed the
Seal Integrity test and is functional.
– If the displayed mV changes more than 300 µV for the relative delta after 100 seconds,
the unit needs to be re-tested. Check all seals and connectors and the keypad.
3. To print out the data that you have acquired, press the Print button on the graph screen.
4. To save the file, use the format mmyyssss, where:
m = month
y = year
s = the last 4 digits of the serial number
You cannot save the configuration setup.

B Tip – You can use this data acquisition system to monitor many things (for example, temperature,
voltage, or current) over time. It is especially useful for recording AC power.

This figure shows the same screen after some time had passed.

Description of issue
Member states of the European Union make up the first set of countries to require RoHS or the
Restriction of Hazardous Substances in manufactured products. Under the RoHS European Directive,
specific categories of products that are placed on the market for sale in the European Union on or after
July 1, 2006 must contain reduced amounts of six named chemical substances. Other countries and
states within the U.S. will be adopting these same or similar restrictions over the coming years.
Trimble has been working on reducing or eliminating the use of these restricted substances in its
products over the last several years, and has been shipping various products complying with the new
RoHS standards over the last number of months. More of our products meeting RoHS requirements
will be released in the coming months.
Trimble has classified the majority of its products as falling within two of the categories defined by
the RoHS and associated WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment) European directives.
The first is category 3, defined as IT (computer) and telecommunications equipment. Such products
must be compliant by July 1, 2006. The second is category 9, which is defined as monitoring and
control instruments. Products falling under category 9 will be required to be compliant in or about
2008. The exact date is yet to be determined by European Council action. Products, such as Trimble’s
machine control and/or vehicle mounted products which are produced to be part of equipment (e.g.,
earth moving and/or agricultural vehicles, boats, etc.) not falling under any of the product categories
set out in the WEEE and RoHS European Directives, are classified as being excluded and exempt
from meeting the RoHS requirements. Nevertheless, Trimble is committed to the protection of the

environment and has, therefore, set a goal toward meeting RoHS compliance with respect to all of its
products as soon as commercially feasible, regardless of any available exemptions or exclusions.
Trimble will discontinue production of non-compliant versions of its products once the RoHS
compliant version is available. Our customers around the world can expect to begin seeing RoHS
compliant products, although functionally the customer will not see a difference. The service groups
will, however, see a significant difference, since in many cases the products’ internal parts are no
longer the same. Specifically, differences will be noted in the area of the electronic circuit boards and
interconnecting cables. Such new parts are marked with different part numbers to allow you to verify
the correct replacement parts. Also, the printed circuit board artwork has a symbol (fig 1) that will
also help you to determine if the printed circuit board is lead-free. For those of our customers who
need to use solder, in some cases the boards are also printed with a code that identifies what solder
chemistry was used in the manufacturing of the board (fig 2). To date all boards are using SnAgCu
(SAC alloy; i.e. Kester 245 or 275 cored wire) for our lead-free solder processes, which is represented
by the “e1” symbol. In the future there may be different chemistries, and if this occurs the board will
show a different symbol than “e1”. Specific information as to service part number changes as a result
of boards becoming RoHS compliant will be communicated in future Service Bulletins specific to a
product and or product line/family.

We hope these steps will make it very easy for you to continue to offer the finest service in the
industry. We have attached a number of frequently asked questions that we hope will address the
majority of your questions and/or concerns.

Resolution
1. What is the difference between Lead-Free solder and regular tin-lead solder?
Lead-Free solders contain low lead and melt at a higher temperature than the popularly used
63Sn37Pb solder (63% tin, 37% lead) and 60Sn40Pb solder (60% tin, 40% lead).
63Sn37Pb melts at 361°F (183°C) and solidifies at 361°F (183°C).
60Sn40Pb melts at 374°F (191°C) and solidifies at 361°F (183°C).
The melting point for lead-free solders ranges from
423 °F (217 °C) to 439 °F (226 °C)
2. What can I expect when soldering Lead-Free solders? What problems could I encounter? Do
I need to retrain my service technicians?
Some of the problems with lead-free soldering are:
– a higher melting temperature may damage components, including plastic connectors,
relays, LEDs, electrolytic capacitors, and multilayer ceramic capacitors
– a higher temperature can cause PCB warping, which can crack multilayer ceramic
capacitors (a common failure)
– a higher melting temperature may cause thermal shock to a component
– a higher melting temperature can cause plastics to melt or deform
– higher soldering temperatures result in poor solder spread-ability and wet ability due to
an increase in surface oxidation
– the need to use more active (and corrosive) fluxes
– the time required to form a good joint may be significantly longer than with a tin-lead
solder
– PCB warping
– bridging or insufficient solder
– solder joints can be difficult to rework
– more solder balls
– flux spattering
– shorter tip life
– dull finish solder joint (not shiny)
– operator acceptance, frustration and willingness to change their style of soldering
To prevent thermal shock to the component:
– use the same soldering temperature as you would with a tin-lead solder
– control the tip temperature
– use a soldering iron with great thermal recovery - the lower the soldering temperature
and the larger the tip, the less heat loss
– use a high power soldering iron
– use the largest tip commensurate with the size of the joint being soldered

F RoHS Service Bulletin

To help operator acceptance, reduce frustration, and improve performance:


– Retraining is recommended; Trimble is currently looking at training material and will
provide this information in future service bulletins.
3. Since Lead-Free solders melt at higher temperatures, do I need to increase the temperature of
my soldering iron?
Not necessarily. By elevating the soldering iron temperature, you may be making it more
difficult to solder. The higher temperatures cause oxidation to form faster, thus making
wetting even more difficult. Flux selection can help alleviate this situation somewhat, but we
are still trying to live in a no-clean world.
Most no-clean fluxes have a very narrow process window. The activators are quickly
consumed, presumably leaving no corrosive residues after soldering. The problem is no-lead
solders need a longer process window, otherwise the flux is gone before the wetting process
has been completed.
This causes more touch-up.
The best answer is to select a soldering station what has excellent thermal recovery. This will
allow you to solder lead-free solders without a large increase in tip temperature.
4. How do I desolder with Lead-Free solder?
There is no special, magical process to desoldering Lead-Free solder. The only difference
between desoldering a Lead-Free and a tin-lead soldered connection is that you may need to
spend a little longer time desoldering the No Lead connection. Note: You do not necessarily
need to increase the temperature of the desoldering tool though.
When desoldering a No Lead soldered connection, try to use the same desoldering
temperature you would normally use to desolder a typical Sn63 or Sn60 soldered connection,
because a higher temperature will result in faster oxidation of the desoldering nozzle/tip.
On the other hand, if a vacuum-desoldering tool is used, higher temperatures must be
maintained not only through the nozzle and heating element, but also right up to the entrance
to the filter, lest the solder solidify and plug the tool before it is fully extracted.

Building the Cable


To build the test cable perform the following steps:
1. Strip and tin both ends of each 20 AWG wire.
2. Use wire cutters to cut cable 59044 two or three inches above the DC power jack.
3. Strip the housing back on each wire to reveal the center conductors.
4. Slide the medium piece of heat shrink tubing over and past the two wires so that it rests over
the main wire housing.
5. Slide one piece of heat shrink tubing over and beyond the center conductor of each wire lead.
6. Use an ohm meter to determine which wire lead goes to the center conductor of the DC jack
7. Solder the red 20 AWG wire to the lead that goes to the center conductor.
8. Solder the black 20 AWG wire to the remaining wire lead that goes to the DC jack.
9. Slide the two small pieces of heat shrink tubing over the exposed solder joints and shrink with
a heat gun.
10. Slide the medium piece of heat shrink tubing over the two internal wires and apply heat to
shrink it over the two spliced wires.
11. Attach the red banana jack to the red 20 AWG wire.
12. Attach the black banana jack to the black 20 AWG wire.
The modified cable along with interface cable adaptor 40282-01 attached, is shown in
Figure C-1.

Using the Voltage Test Cable


To use the test cable follow these steps and precautions:
Caution - Before using this radio test cable with a variable power supply make sure that the built
in DC adaptor input jack on cable 59044 does not have a DC power adaptor plugged into it.

1. Plug the black banana jack into the negative connector of the variable power supply.
2. Plug the red banana jack into the positive connector of the variable power supply.
3. Depending on which Trimble radio product you intend to test and what that particular service
manual instructs you to do, set the variable power supply to either 12 or 24V DC and the
current limit to 3 amps or higher or as specified in the service manual.
4. Now either turn the variable power supply off or place it in standby mode. You are now ready
to begin testing.
