MX3 Cradles
Introduction
There are two types of cradles for LXE's MX3 family of mobile devices: a desk top cradle for
tabletop charging / communication applications and a vehicle mount cradle for vehicle mounted
charging / communication applications.
The cradles give the MX3 family of mobile devices the ability to communicate with a host
computer and other equipment. In addition, using wall AC adapters or DC/DC converters, the
cradle transfers power to the internal charging circuitry of the mobile device and the device, in
turn, recharges the Main Battery. The mobile device can be either on or off while in the cradle.
Cables are available from LXE for connecting the cradle to a printer, a desktop PC or laptop, or a
barcode printer. Tethered scanners (for RS-232 serial port connection) are also available from
LXE.
The vehicle cradle should be mounted in an area in the vehicle where it:
•
Does not obstruct the driver's vision or safe vehicle operation.
•
Will be protected from rain or inclement weather.
•
Will be protected from extremely high concentrations of dust or wind-blown debris.
•
Can be easily accessed by a user seated in the driver's seat.

Caution
For proper and safe installation, the input power cable must be connected
to a fused circuit on the vehicle. This fused circuit requires a 5 Amp
maximum time delay (slow blow) fuse. If the supply connection is made
directly to the battery, the fuse should be installed in the positive lead
within 5 inches of the battery positive (+) terminal.
Recommended for vehicle electrical systems that use between 2 and 5
twelve volt batteries in series.

If the mobile device is in the cradle, it can be either On or Off during this process.
2.
Turn the Power Supply toggle switch to the Off position.
3.
While observing the fuse requirements specified above, connect the power cable as close as
possible to the actual battery terminals of the vehicle. When available, always connect to
unswitched terminals in the vehicle fuse panel, after providing proper fusing.
IMPORTANT:
For uninterrupted power, electrical supply connections should not be made at any point
after the ignition switch of the vehicle.
4.
Route the cable the shortest way possible. The input cable from the connection to the battery
is rated for a maximum temperature of 60°C (140°F). When routing this cable it should be
protected from physical damage and from surfaces which might exceed this temperature.
Additionally do not expose the cable to chemicals or oil that may cause the wiring insulation
to deteriorate.
Note:
If the vehicle is equipped with a panel containing Silicon Controlled Rectifiers
(SCR's), avoid routing the power cable in close proximity to these devices.
Always route the cable so that it does not interfere with the operator's safe operation and
maintenance of the vehicle.
Use proper electrical and mechanical fastening means for terminating the cable. Properly
sized "crimp" type electrical terminals are an accepted method of termination.
