PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE BEFORE MOUNTING YOUR IPAQ ! RPR-182-CO5-INS CONTENTS, DESCRIPTION & ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS Before proceeding with assembly of powered docking cradle, check the contents of package to make certain all parts are included. If any parts are missing, please contact NPI for a replacement part at: firstname.lastname@example.org A B F G C D E M H J K L First determine what type of connection you require for the serial port. We offer 2 different wire harnesses, a non-nullmodem (Black) and null modem (Red). To determine what type you require, contact the manufacturer of your electronic device that you are attaching to the powered docking cradle. Once determined, select the appropriate colored wire harness and attach it to the corresponding PCB’s G & H as shown in the STEP 1 photo. Note, the ends have different numbers of connectors so they can’t be reversed. Attach the 10 qty. connector socket to the G PCB & the 11 qty. connector housing to the H PCB. Connect the 3 wire socket on the G PCB to the pins on the F PCB. Make certain that the label marked “TOP FACING” is toward you as shown in the STEP 1 photo. A. 1 qty.

Check the E PCB Application Chart to see what M washers are required for your iPAQ model. Install the K screws in E PCB along with the nuts & appropriate colored washers M to properly space the E PCB to align with the iPAQ device. Make certain to have the K screws, nuts & correct M washers on the correct side of the PCB. The K nut must have a M washer under it or the PCB may be damaged. IMPORTANT: DON’T OVER TIGHTEN ANY NUTS, OR SCREWS IN THE REMAINING STEPS. Insert the iPAQ device into the cradle and carefully align the E PCB into the mating connector. The 2 qty K hex head screws will slide into the A housing. Make certain the E PCB is fully engaged into the iPAQ device and then gently tighten the K nylock nuts. Power PCB 10 qty.

Step 4 With iPAQ device still installed in A housing attach B cover with A housing using L screws. Note; make certain screws are properly aligned and DON’T OVER TIGHTEN. Step 5 Attach G side arms with H screws and nuts. With iPAQ device installed in A housing, G adjust arms and GENTLY tighten screws. Note, insert 4 qty. business cards between the side arms and the iPAQ device to provide the proper clearance for easy use. Your RAM Powered Docking Cradle is now ready for use.
