Weight: 1.7 kg.
Power supply:
– Input voltage: 9 ~ 36Vdc, support ignition cold crank (min 6Vdc).
– Ignition on/off
– Low battery shut-down protection threshold (optional): When the vehicle
battery voltage level drops below 11V for more than 30 seconds, TREK-743
will automatically shut down in order to prevent “deep discharge” situations
and TREK-743 can be re-activated only when the voltage is > 11V.
– Power on delay: Default 2 seconds. When the TREK-743 is powered on via
ignition key, the system will delay 2 seconds to power on.
– Power off delay: Default 5 seconds. When TREK-743 power is controlled by
ignition key and turns off by the key (ignition=off), the TREK-743 will start the
shut procedure after 5 seconds.
– Hard off delay: Default 30 seconds. When TREK-743 power is controlled by
ignition key and turns off by the key (ignition=off), the TREK-743 will cut off
the 5VSB power after 30 seconds. In this event when the shutdown process
is longer then 30 seconds, the power will be shut down hard, turning off the
TREK-743's power and 5VSB.

2.4 Installing System Software
Recent releases of operating systems from major vendors include setup programs
which load automatically and guide users through the entire process of operating
system installation. The guidelines below help to determine the steps necessary to
install your operating system on the computer hard drive.
Note!
Some distributors and system integrators may have already preinstalled system software prior to shipment of your Vehicle Mounted
Computer.
The BIOS of the computer supports system boots-up directly from the CD-ROM drive
whenever it is connected using a USB interface. Insert the system installation CDROM into the CD-ROM drive.
Power on the computer, or reset the system by pressing the “Ctrl” + “Alt” + “Del” keys
simultaneously. The computer will automatically load the operating system from the
diskette or CD-ROM.
When presented with the opening screen of a setup / installation program, simply follow the onscreen instructions. The setup program guides users through preparations
of the hard drive, and installation of the operating system.
When presented with an operating system command prompt, like, A:\>, then it is necessary to partition and format the hard drive, and manually copy the operating system files to it. Refer to the operating system user instructions about partitioning and
formatting the hard drive.

TREK-743 User Manual
System Setup
In most cases, the computer will have been properly set up and configured by the
dealer or SI prior to delivery. However, it may still be necessary to adjust some of the
computer's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup programs to change the system
configuration data, like the current date and time, or the specific type of hard drive
currently installed.
The setup program is stored in read-only memory (ROM). It can be accessed either
when turning on or resetting the computer, by pressing the “Del” key on the keyboard
immediately after powering up the computer.
The settings that are specified with the setup program are recorded in a special area
of the memory called CMOS RAM. This memory is backed up by a battery so that it
will not be erased when turning off or resetting the system. Whenever the power is
turned on, the system reads the settings stored in CMOS RAM and compares them
to the equipment check conducted during the “power on self-test” (POST). If an error
occurs, an error message is displayed on screen, and the user is prompted to run the
setup program.
Chapter 2
2.3 Running the BIOS Setup Program
2.5 Installing the Drivers

This chapter explains how to set
up the Vehicle Mounted Computer
hardware, including instructions
on setting jumpers and connecting peripherals, and how to set
switches and read indicators.
Be sure to read all the safety precautions before beginning the
installation procedure.
Sections include:
! Setting Jumpers
! CPU Installation
! Jumper Setting on MotherBoard
! COM-port Interface
4.1 Setting Jumpers and Switches
It is possible to configure the Vehicle Mounted Computer to match the needs of the
application by resetting the jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical switch.
It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip, often protected by a plastic cover
that slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a jumper, connect the pins with
the clip. To “open” a jumper, remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper has three pins,
labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case, connect either pins 1 and 2, or pins 2 and 3.

A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers. If there are
any doubts about the best hardware configuration for the application, contact the
local distributor or sales representative before making any changes.
An arrow is used on the motherboard to indicate the first pin of each jumper.
4.1.1 Locating Jumpers and Switches

B.1 GPRS Settings in the OS
After installing the GPRS module shown in section 3.3.3, the GPRS functions need to
be activated by setting up a modem and an Internet connection through the OS. In
the case of Win XPE users, the system settings are already built-in to XPE, therefore,
users may refer to step 13 of the section below, B.1.1 and then move on to the last
step of section B.1.2 to obtain access. Users of Win XP Pro must follow the steps
below to finish installation. In the case of Win CE users, please refer to the
WinCE_GPRS setting manual on the support CD for the installation.
