Replace ALERT1 receiver with 5052RD-K ALERT2 receiver/decoder Add ALERT1 receiver/decoder option to collect legacy ALERT1 date during upgrade transition Rack mount installation recommended Desktop installation possible Use AC power adapter Connect to battery backup power system Stand alone battery with charge no longer used Antenna splitter uses same receiver antenna for ALERT1 and ALERT2
ALERT2 Receiver Decoder ALERT1 Receiver ALERT1 Transmitter ALERT1 ALERT1 and ALERT2 Antenna Splitter ALERT1 Receiver Decoder Polyphaser Battery Backup Battery with charger AC Power
Install powered preamp after polyphaser Increases received signal to offset splitter and filter insertion losses Install antenna splitter after preamp Antenna splitters have small insertion loss Install cavity or crystal filters after splitter Separate filters required for ALERT1 and ALERT2 receiver frequencies Crystal filters have the best performance as filters Very compact size and inline installation 7dB insertion loss requires preamp for signal boost 8 week delivery so order in advance

Check type and gender of antenna cable connectors Polyphasers, splitters, crystal filters connect to N male cable connector ALERT2 receiver connects to a BNC male connector Connecting cable from polyphaser to splitter Check length of cable required Remove existing polyphaser from ALERT1 receiver? Preamp increase in signal level for ALERT1 may require a higher squelch level in radio receiver -104 dB instead of -113 dB
50386 ALERT1 repeater trade up supported ALERT2 Concentrator Receive ALERT1, transmit ALERT2 50386 time sync with GPS Battery, GPS status, local sensors transmit in ALERT2 Legacy ALERT1 transmit as well as ALERT2 ALERT2 Repeater Receive ALERT1 and ALERT2 on same antenna but two different radios Legacy ALERT1 transmit as well as ALERT2 on third radio
Phase 1 converts ALERT1 repeaters into ALERT2 concentrators Receive ALERT1, transmit ALERT2 Transmit ALERT1 for parallel legacy system Single or dual antenna installations Phase 2 converts ALERT2 concentrators into ALERT2 repeaters Receive ALERT1 and ALERT2, transmit ALERT2 Antenna splitter and filter use same receive antenna for ALERT1 and ALERT2 Transmit ALERT1 for parallel legacy system Single or dual antenna installations
ALERT1 Receive ALERT2 Receive Receiver Antenna AC Power Supply PreAmpSplitter
Upgrade existing 50386 ALERT1 repeater Add ALERT2 encoder and GPS antenna to repeater Receive ALERT1, transmit ALERT2 Battery, GPS status, local sensors transmit in ALERT2 Single omni antenna repeater Standard concentrator configuration only Dual antenna repeater Omni receive, directional transmit Crystal filter can be added to receive antenna ALERT1, ALERT2 transmit on same and antenna
Upgrade existing 50386 ALERT1 repeater Add ALERT2 encoder and GPS antenna to repeater Add ALERT2 receive radio, demodulator, decoder Receive ALERT1 and ALERT2, transmit ALERT2 Battery, GPS status, local sensors transmit in ALERT2 Omni receive antenna shared by two radios Preamp, splitter for ALERT1, ALERT2 receiver radios Crystal filters for ALERT1, ALERT2 radio receivers Dual antenna required for filter use Dual antenna repeater ALERT1, ALERT2 transmit on third radio and antenna
ALERT2 repeater firmware does not support pass block lists 50386 repeater stills supports ALERT1 receive pass/block lists in concentrator mode Firmware upgrade in 2015 will add this feature
ScadaLynx Toolbox version 2.0 supports ALERT2 Example configurations supplied repeater types Single antenna repeater Dual antenna repeater Dual antenna repeater with ALERT1 transmit Example configurations supplied for sensor types No sensors Rain only Rain and level Weather station
ScadaLynx Toolbox sets station ID and ALERT2 source address on DCU tab
ALERT1 port setup as receive only ALERT2 encoder on COM2 is a repeater
Use default ALERT2 Airlink parameters Maxon SD-125E V2 use inverted modulation
Set Hop Limit to 0 to prevent repeat of repeater battery, GPS, and local sensor reports
Set repeater frame and slot size 15 second frame, 10 second offset, 5 second length
Check GPS time sync status every 1 minute 15 minute timeout on power up GPS time sync lock in 15 min
Set ALERT1 radio for no repeat on ALERT1 Repeat on ALERT2 if in pass/block range
ALERT2 reports received bypass the 50386 and are repeated by the ALERT2 encoder directly
HydroLynx provides a kit to upgrade 5096 and 50386 transmitters to ALERT2 ALERT2 encoder PCB Mounting hardware Power harness Internal programming cable GPS antenna Mounting bracket, polyphaser, cables, strain relief, ties SMA antenna bulkhead connector and internal harness Maxon radio hardware ALERT2 radio harness and Firmware update
REMOVE 5096 PCB RIBBON CONNECTORS- J1 & 2, POWER -J3, RADIO -J4 & CONSOLE -J5 REMOVE 5096 PCB ASSEMBLY FROM MTG PLATE - SAVE WINGNUTS REMOVE MAXON RADIO FROM MTG PLATE - SAVE HARDWARE REMOVE RADIO HARNESSES THEY WILL NOT BE USED.
DRILL TOP PLATE - USE 1/4" DRILL BIT - SEE PHOTO FOR PLACEMENT. USE A HAND PUNCH TO MARKSPOT FOR EASY DRILLING.INSTALL BULKHEAD CONNECTOR TIGHTEN WITH #6 NUT DRIVER. APPLY ALERT2 LABEL ON TOP PLATE.
SEE PHOTO FOR PLACEMENT MARK MTG HOLES ON PLATE Check position of the SMA antenna on the PCB Leave room for Rt angle SMA connector to be installed For easy drilling use a hand punch, mark center of holes DRILL PCB MTG PLATE - #30 DRILL BIT (.1360), FOR # 4 HARDWARE Do not install the PCB yet
Check if transmitter has holes drilled at bottom of plate, if not Place Maxon radio per photo, mark holes on plate Check that position of holes are not too close to the mounting rod, leave room for the head of the screws. For easy drilling use a hand punch, mark center of holes Drill mounting plate #25 drill bit (.1495), for #6 hardware Put right angle BNC on radio before mounting
USING #4 HARDWARE PROVIDED, INSTALL IN THIS ORDER: SCREW, INSERT THROUGH MTG PLATE; NYLON STANDOFF, NYLON NUT AND TIGHTEN NUT, ALERT2 PCB ASSY, NYLON NUT AND TIGHTEN NUT.

Remove any cables already on the mast so they will not be damaged. Drill a 5/8 hole in the mast about 9"up from the mast enclosure. Run the cables thru the mast, use long nose pliers to pull the connector through the hole. Install GPS Antenna on mast with Bracket + U-Bolt. The Snap Bushing is split so it will go around the coaxial cable, press the bushing in the 5/8 hole and install the strain relief provided.
