Smoke alarm check

Preventive maintenance of BTS

We perform following checks in preventive maintenance (PM) of BTS. 


Call quality testing

All BTS parts should be clean

VSWR measurement

Joint grounding resistance ≤1 check

BTS grounding resistance ≤5 check

Check the feeder cable for water proofing and antenna, end jumper and grounding points

Microwave PM

To check and verify TX power, RX power, TX frequency, RX frequency, IDU capacity, RSL local, RSL Remote

Note RSL value (of all MW) and Transmit Power value

Check the IF cable for weather proofing at antenna end and grounding points

Check if the grounding Cable of IDU/ODU is Present and tight and Value is <=3 Ohms

MW antenna mount, sway arm and bracing are tight

MW fixation, MW IDU labeling, MW Internal alarms, and RSL level for MW.


Tighten the power terminations at WAPDA Meter, and AC DB

Measure the Phase to Phase voltage of RYG

Measure the Phase to Neutral voltage of RYG

Note input and output voltage of line conductor


Tighten the power terminations

Check water protection(Broken/rubber seal damaged)

Clean the AC power distribution box using blower

Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS)

Tighten the power termination and rectifier

Check the alarm indication and display functions

Check the grounding protection cable

Check the surge arrestor

Rectifier test the neutral line current

Measure float volts(52-54V)

Switch over test(Load to be transferred to batteries)

Rectifier modules alarm check


Complete battery test

Check all connectors

External alarm

Main’s failure

AC Phase Lost

DG in Operation

SMR Failure

DC Low Voltage

Tower Light


Smoke/ Fire

If AC Failure


Water proofing for all connected jumpers & feeders, power cable

Sealing the disconnected feeder, jumper connectors and proper fixes

Proper routing of Fiber jumper’s power cable

Cleaning the site and check the complete labeling before leaving

Wait for cross feeder, Sector / Partial Swapping and VSWR confirmation from OEM’s team room and confirmation from DT team.

If the site has issues, swap team do rectification immediately until all issues solved.

After the completion of the above work and received the leave approval from war room can leave site.

Send message in Line to inform leaving site
