You may also mount it on an interior wall by first removing the silver bracket, screwing the bracket to a wall (screws not provided) then snapping the Base Unit back in place keeping the Indoor Antenna vertical. This Base Unit uses an omni-directional antenna that delivers signal in a circular pattern around the antenna. Keep the Base Unit off the floor and at least 2 feet away from other cords, metal objects or other wireless devices such as wireless routers or wireless access points. The zBoost REACH performs best when there are no obstructions between the zBoost Base Unit and your mobile device. Remember, the zBoost REACH requires at least 15 feet of vertical separation between the Base Unit and the External Antenna. Generally, increasing this distance (up to 40 feet) will increase the performance and decreasing the distance will limit zBoost performance. THIRD: Run the provided coaxial cable between the Base Unit and External Antenna. Use the provided 50 feet of RG-6 coaxial cable to connect the External Antenna and the Base Unit. To run the cable from exterior to interior through a window, an 8 inch window-entry cable is available for purchase (Part: YX030-08W). Should you need additional cable length, 15 foot extensions (Part: YX030-15W) are available at zBoost.com. Please note: Cable longer than 60 feet is not recommended. FOURTH: Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the provided power supply and plug into a power outlet. When your zBoost system is in place and fully connected, walk throughout your building and verify that you are able to reliably place calls. If the signal strength has improved, your zBoost is working. Remember, coverage varies based on outdoor signal level, building construction, and antenna placement. Coverage in adjoining rooms will be reduced by walls and building materials. Upon initial power up, the LED will cycle RED, GREEN and ORANGE for 30 seconds. After, a series of GREEN flashes will indicate the quality of your setup. Following this, a solid GREEN light indicates normal conditions. If it is not solid Should you desire to improve coverage, you may: • Relocate the External Antenna in order to capture a better signal—higher is better. • Increase the distance between the Indoor Antenna and the External Antenna. • Purchase an upgrade antenna available at zBoost.com. Base Unit LED Indicators During Initial Power Up Coax Cable RG-6, 50 feet External Antenna Light Mode Cycle RED, GREEN, ORANGE Flashing GREEN SETTING UP YOUR zBOOST@ SIGNAL BOOSTER The zBoost ZB560P is designed to provide increased in-building voice and data coverage, up to 3,500 square feet, and better reach into rural environments. The ZB560P supports multiple users and all devices operating on (CEL) 800MHz & (PCS) 1900MHz Networks. Boost voice and data transmission and increase call clarity in 4 easy steps: FIRST: Choose a location for the External Antenna using your cell phone to determine the area of strongest signal. The coverage your zBoost provides is largely determined by the quality of signal received by the External Antenna. This location will be typically found on the roof. Before installing, please note the following important factors in determining your zBoost pefformance: • At least 15 vatical feet is needed between the External Antenna (receives the outside signal) and the Indoor Antenna (rebroadcasts the signal indoors). Separation less than 15 vettica/ feet will result in decreased pefformance • Keep the External Antenna at least 2 feet above any metal such as wiring, A/C ducts, truss plates, etc. When attaching the cable to the antenna, run the cable straight down from the antenna Avoid draping the coax near the antenna To get the maximum benefit, you will want to take special care in pointing the External Antenna in the direction of best signal for your wireless service provider. If you are unsure of the direction of your provider’s closest network tower, see the Antenna Aiming section of the User Manual or you may wish to use a YX699 RF signal meter to help during this process. Once you have determined the optimum location and angle, secure the antenna to a flat surface using the provided antenna hardware. SECOND: Place the zBoost Base Unit where you want to create a Cell ZoneTM. Connect the Indoor Antenna to the Base Unit and place it where you need signal. For the widest possible signal area, position the Base Unit near the middle of a Status System is powering up. Please allow up to 30 seconds. BASE UNIT will flash GREEN once for every 2 dB less than optimal system gain. Three flashes or less indicates the system will still operate properly. After Initial Power U GREEN, follow the instructions in the Base Unit LED Indicators section. Adjustments may be needed to optimize performance. If you find the increased signal coverage is acceptable, however, no additional adjustments are needed. External Antenna 15 ft. of Vertical Separation 1 Indoor Antenna zBoost Base Unit Power Supply Light Mode SOLID GREEN Flashing GREEN SOLID ORANGE SOLID RED Flashing RED Status zBoost is ready. zBoost is in use. EXTERNAL ANTENNA and INDOOR ANTENNA are too close together. Signal from the carrier’s cell tower is too strong for the BASE UNIT to operate properly. Excessive electronic noise in the system — the BASE UNIT will not operate. Solution N/A 1. Unplug the BASE UNIT power supply. 2. Relocate the EXTERNAL ANTENNA to pick up the strongest signal from your wireless carrier. 3. Move the EXTERNAL ANTENNA as far away from the INDOOR ANTENNA as possible, with at least 15 ft. of vertical separation (height difference). 4. Plug the BASE UNIT power supply back in. 5. Wait 30 secs. for the BASE UNIT to power cycle on. Solution N/A N/A 1. Unplug the BASE UNIT power supply. 2. Move the EXTERNAL ANTENNA as far away from the INDOOR ANTENNA as possible, with at least 15 ft. of vertical separation (height difference). 3. Plug the BASE UNIT power supply back in. 4. Wait 30 secs. for the BASE UNIT to power cycle on. 1. Unplug the BASE UNIT power supply. 2. Relocate the EXTERNAL ANTENNA to another spot. 3. If you have a directional antenna re-aim it to reduce carrier signal strength. 4. Plug the BASE UNIT power supply back in. 5. Wait 30 secs. for the BASE UNIT to power cycle on.
