Operators manual
BEFORE INSTALLATION:
1. To prevent electrical shock, DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR CASE. There
are potentially lethal voltages, inside the monitor. There are no user
serviceable parts inside. If evidence of tampering is detected, the
Warranty will be considered void.
2. Keep the monitor away from leaking water, rain, moisture, etc. It is not
waterproofed. Any moisture inside the monitor could cause extensive
damage.
3. Use the thumbscrews to mount the monitor to the bracket.
**CAUTION**
1. Do not open the camera case. This will break the camera’s waterproof
seal. If evidence of tampering is detected, the warranty will be
considered void.
2. Do not mount the camera near the lower area of the vehicle (e.g.
bumper). This reduces the view of camera and may cause physical
damage to the camera.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
AOC-75 CAMERA
1. Attach camera bracket (See Figure 1) to upper portion of vehicle.
Attachment point must be sturdy enough to support camera and
bracket.
2
2. Attach camera to bracket using 8-32 UNC screws provided. Adjust
angle as indicated in Figure 2. Use rear or end of bumper as
reference point.
3. Wind deflector may be installed. This deflector is designed to reduce
the build-up of dust, dirt and moisture on the camera lens. (See Figure
3).
AOM-58 MONITOR
1. Attach monitor inside vehicle in a location convenient to the driver
(e.g. center of dash, overhead, or in dash).
2. Use a compression plate to attach the monitor bracket to the dash or
overhead. (See Figure 4)
3. Adjust mounting angle of the monitor to allow driver to easily view the
screen from all seat positions. (See Figure 5)
4. If necessary, snap sun visor into groove on front face of monitor. Press
all (4) sides of the visor to snap it into place
OCA-80 CABLE
1. The camera-to-cable connection is waterproof. The cable-to-monitor
connection is not waterproof. Be sure to orient the cable properly.
The cylindrical end attaches to the camera. The rectangular box end
attaches to the monitor. (See Figure 6)
2. Do not run the OCA80 cable over sharp edges or camera. Do not
kink the cable. Keep the cable away from hot or rotating parts.
3. Place all excess cable in convoluted tubing.
4. Wire tie the cable securely.
MAINTENANCE
Remove dust and dirt with a damp soft cloth. Heavier dirt should be
removed with a soft cloth and mild detergent. Do not use strong cleaning
agents containing gasoline, benzene, or alcohol. These substances may
damage the exterior surface of the monitor.
**CAUTION**
1. Before drilling, be sure no cable or wiring is on the other side. Be sure to
drill a 19mm/3/4” diameter hole only.
2. Feed as much cable as possible into the vehicle and clamp securely.
This reduces the possibility of being hooked during operation of the
vehicle.
3. Keep all cables away from HOT, ROTATING and ELECTRICALLY NOISY
components.
4. To increase protection of cable, place all excess wire and extension
cable in convoluted tubing.
5. Do not twist camera cable, do not cut pigtail, or cable.
WIRING CAMERA AND MONITOR
1. See wiring diagram for connections to ignition, ground, and backup
circuit. (See Figure 6)
2. Wiring camera:
Drill a 19mm /3/4” diameter hole into the vehicle body near the
camera and bracket.
Connect camera connector to extension cable in vehicle.
3
Push extra cable into vehicle, (be careful not to kink cable) and fit
grommet into the hole.
Apply sealant around grommet to increase resistance to water
penetration.
3. Wiring monitor:
Insert extension cable into the camera #1 position if (2) cameras
are used, be sure to mark each extension cable properly and plug
second camera into cable #2 position.
Bundle excess cable together using a cable tie or vinyl tape. This
will avoid possible damage to cable during operation.
4. The red wire marked ACC is connected to an ignition power source,
the black wire marked GND is connected to chassis ground, and the
blue wire marked BACK is connected to the vehicle’s back up circuit.

AFFIXING DISTANCE MARKERS TO THE MONITOR SCREEN
1. Clean monitor screen surface of fingerprints. Set the camera into the
“DOWN” position. Place the distance indicators behind the vehicle at
3 feet, 6 feet, and 9 feet from the back of the vehicle. (See Figure 8)
2. Attach the markers to the monitor screen over the images of the
distance indicators. These markers represent a distance of 3 feet, 6
feet, and 9 feet from the back of the vehicle. (See Figure 8)
3. Affix the “STOP” marker on the monitor screen over the image of the
rear view bumper to locate the rear bumper.
4. The monitor screen is now “calibrated” for distances behind the
vehicle of 3 feet, 6 feet and 9 feet.
