For the easiest trouble-free installation, install the Interface first, and wire it to a 12-volt switched circuit. Then before installing the other components, plug all of them into the Interface and power up the unit to confirm proper operation. CUSTOM INSTALLED RADAR DETECTOR AND LASER “BLOCKING” SYSTEM MODE L RX75 PLUS Important Installation Warnings 1 A professional installer must install your BEL M ODE L RX75 PLUS new BEL . Installation of this system requires experience and expertise in automotive electronics. Car Audio specialists and many car dealers can install BEL for you. Performance Warning To get the best performance possible, the mounting location of the Radar Receiver is critical. Although radar signals will pass through some types of plastic, mounting the Radar Receiver so that it has a clear “view” of the road will ensure maximum warning. 2 Attempting to install this product Interface Front Radar Receiver • Miniature weather-proof Radar Receiver • Universal mounting bracket with stainless steel hardware • Built-in 6 foot shielded cable with waterproof connector • 13 foot shielded cable with in-line grommet and waterproof connector • 12 nylon wire ties to secure cable Front Laser “Blockers” • Weather-proof sensor • 13 foot shielded cable with in-line grommet • Universal mounting bracket with stainless steel hardware • Central module connects to switched 12-volt power and ground • All components plug directly in using modular connections • 3M connector taps into existing vehicle wiring Rear Laser Receiver • Weatherproof license plate mounted sensor • 30-foot cable with modular connector Documentation • Comprehensive Owner’s Manual • Installation Manual Built-in Diagnostics User Display • User Display mounts easily to instrument pod, dashboard, or console • Velcro and adhesive pads provided for secure mounting without expertise in automotive electronics installation can cause personal injury, or damage to your vehicle. • Confirms all components are operational 5442 West Chester Road, West Chester, Ohio 45069 Sales/Service 800-341-2288 • www.beltronicspro.com ©2003 SWS™ is a trademark of SWS LC.
