Your Argonaut A615 Smart Multi Function Display (SMFD) has been engineered for trouble-free use in
the marine environment. Please retain this reference guide for relevant installation, wiring, care and
operational information.
Surface Mounting
The A615 SMFD has been designed for an easy, secure and sealed installation.
installations, please note the following steps:
For surface mount
1) Locate a suitable installation mounting surface. The surface should be flat and allow at least
enough room for the outside bezel face to fit (14.45” x 11.70” W x H). Note that the thickness of
the display is 1.35” so make sure there is enough clearance to mount in your desired
location. Make sure there is sufficient clearance behind the surface for cabling passage (.75”
minimum recommended). Rear surface space should also allow clearance to install mounting
screws from the rear; however, the display can be installed without using mounting screws, if
necessary.
2) Once mounting location is identified, carefully align the mounting template to the surface in the
exact location desired and secure lightly with tape. Mark the centers of the 4 VESA mount pattern
holes. Mark the connector clamp bracket outline and outside edge of the template. Once all
holes are marked, surface may be drilled and cut accordingly.
3) Display can now be seated against the surface. In some installations, a bead of marine caulking
may be desired to help prevent any water intrusion to the mounting surface openings. This bead
of caulking/adhesive can be placed upon the outer edge of the back cover and may also be
sufficient to secure the display in place without screwing into the enclosure from behind the
surface. Take care not to allow sealant to penetrate the gap between the front bezel and rear cover
as this may prevent opening the display if service is ever needed. Another approach is to lay down
a thin layer of weather stripping flush to the display edge. This strip can be sealed at the edges
with caulking. In general, after positioning/sealing is complete, screw display down to surface
(Note: screw type is M5 stainless steel machine thread). Different length screws may be
required depending on bulkhead thickness. In all installations, where water contact can occur with
the display, caulking sealant should be placed around the screw and connector clamp bracket
openings. Once secured to the surface, take care not to over tighten mounting screws.
Optional Flush Mount Kit
The optional flush mount kit allows you to embed the display within the mounting surface completely flat
to provide a “glass bridge” look. Included in the kit are rear mount plate, mounting screws, adjustment
screws, oversize adhesive backed polycarbonate face plate, and mounting template. For flush mount
installations, please note the following steps:
1) Locate a suitable installation mounting surface. The surface should be flat and allow at least
enough room for the polycarbonate bezel face plate to fit (16.21” x 12.46” W x H). Note that the
thickness of the display is 1.35” so make sure there is enough clearance to mount in your
desired location. Add an additional depth of at least 6” for sufficient clearance behind the
surface for cabling passage and to install mounting plate plus adjustment screws.
2) Once mounting location is identified, carefully align the mounting template to the surface in the
exact location desired and secure lightly with tape. Mark the centers of the 8 mount pattern holes
and the display cutout hole. Once all holes and cutout are marked, surface may be drilled and
cut accordingly. Use the correct bit to allow pilot holes matching the M6 screw size. The
flathead screws will need to be installed flush to the surface so cut an appropriate
countersink into the surface. Take care not to make the screw passage holes too large or the
countersinks too deep as this could compromise the mounting integrity.
3) Attach mount plate to the back of the A615 enclosure using four M5 screws and washers.
4) Carefully slide A615 bezel through display cutout hole such that back mounting plate makes
contact with back of mounting surface. Place 8 M6 flathead screws through mounting holes and
Page 1
attach to 8 corresponding mount plate holes. Tighten screws such that tips are about flush with the
mount back edge surface (note: further adjustment tightening will be done in steps listed below).
5) Allow display assembly to drop back into cutout hole such that the screw heads are flush to the
front mounting surface. Carefully tighten front surface screws an equal amount to pull display up
to a perfectly aligned “flush position with outside front surface.
6) Screw 4 back adjustment screws against the back of the mounting surface to firmly secure the
display in place.
7) Pull off adhesive liner from face plate and carefully attach to display front and surface opening.
Optional RAM Or U-Bracket Mount
The RAM mount includes surface base, swivel arm, display mounting base plate and screws/washers.
Secure square display mounting base plate to back of display using four stainless steel 10/32 x ½” screws
(in order from base, flat washer, split washer, screw). Note: RAM logo should be oriented upside down
for optimal position. Securely tighten but do not over tighten. Attach circular RAM base to mounting
location. Secure display with swivel arm to surface.
U-Bracket mount includes 2 aluminum U brackets, and 2 adjustment/mounting knobs. Locate suitable
mounting location for U bracket mount base. Attach base to mounting surface with 4 bolts and backing
washers/nuts. Place display within mounted base bracket and secure with side knobs.
Wiring
NOTE: THE POSITIVE WIRE IS RED AND THE NEGATIVE WIRE IS BLACK.
The standard input cables include 2 x USB, DVI, RCA/S-Video, and DC Power cable. If optionally
equipped with HDMI, note that this is an HDMI output signal which will output a duplicate image of your
Android screen. All cables exit the rear of the display through a waterproof cable clamp. Note that the
cable ends are not waterproof and should be placed or installed in a dry, protected area. DO NOT
PULL CABLES TIGHT TO PREVENT EXCESS STRAIN AND POSSIBLE BREAK IN CABLE
CLAMP SEAL. Contact your Argonaut Dealer if additional cable lengths are required in excess of
standard provided.
Power
The A615 SMFD is designed for 12 Volt power input through an Argonaut supplied power regulator. The
correct regulator should be specified at time of ordering for connection to either a 12 volt or 24 volt system.
The regulators accept a range of voltage (either 9 to 18V or 19 to 32V) and provide a steady 12 volts to the
display. NOTE: ANY DIRECT CONNECTION OF THE DISPLAY TO 12 OR 24 VOLT POWER
WITHOUT FIRST RUNNING THROUGH THE ARGONAUT SUPPLIED REGULATOR COULD
PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE DISPLAY AND VOID YOUR WARRANTY. DO NOT
CONNECT THE REGULATOR TO VOLTAGE EXCEEDING THE SPECIFIED RANGE AS
THIS WILL DAMAGE THE REGULATOR. DO NOT CONNECT THE DISPLAY DIRECTLY
TO A/C POWER (110-220V) POWER AS THIS WILL DAMAGE THE DISPLAY AND COULD
CAUSE A FIRE. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO AVOID IMPROPER CROSSING WIRES
(POSITIVE TO NEGATIVE) AS THIS CAN DAMAGE THE DISPLAY ELECTRONICS.
Care & Precautions
Care: The LCD has an optically bonded anti-reflective glass overlay for optimal sunlight visibility. Clean
with soft clean cloth dampened with fresh water to remove residue. Follow up with alcohol and lens
cleaning wipes if desired. If water has collected in screen bezel, wipe dry before covering/storing. NOTE:
DO NOT ALLOW SALT WATER DEPOSITS TO REMAIN ON GLASS SURFACE FOR
EXTENDED PERIODS (REMOVE SALT DEPOSITS WITH FRESH WATER). LONG TERM
SALT DEPOSITS MAY CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE SCREEN SURFACE.
Additional Precautions: Do not operate in temperature extremes (below 32°F (0° C) or above 104 °F
(40° C)). Do not put pressure or contact directly on screen surface. Do not connect directly to power
source without using the regulator supplied. Do not reverse power wires. Do not expose to
Page 2
submersion or high pressure water. Do not pull or strain cabling as this can break the cable clamp
seal.
Quick-Start Instructions
1.) Connect power as described in “Wiring” section below. Upon power connection, you will see the
Argonaut logo boot screen for several seconds during boot up followed by the home screen.
2.) Connect the included optical mouse to navigate the screen and make any initial changes to settings
or Apps.
3.) Connect additional signal input cables from signal output devices (for example PC, camera, black
box, etc.). The default signal input is from the internal Android processor board and labeled
“Analog Input” in the signal input menu screen. This input will automatically load on boot up.
4.) All android functions are controlled by external USB mouse or touch pad. Front bezel buttons
control LCD functions such as switching signal inputs and dimming control (button control
summary on page 7).
5.) Power down the system by clicking on the power icon. You can also put the display in power
conserving sleep mode by pressing the physical power button (this turns off the LCD however the
android processor will continue running in the background for instant access upon pressing the
power button again). Disconnecting external power or flipping a breaker to the off position is
another way to shut down the system. Note: Once powered down through power icon or
disconnected power, the system will not restart by pressing the physical power button. In
order to power up, either reconnect to power if already disconnected or flip the appropriate
breaker switch to off then on to restart.
