MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS
BATTERY CONNECTION
The following items are required for installation but are
NOT supplied with the IC-A200.
NEVER install the transceiver into an aircraft with a
24 V battery. The transceiver operates with 13.8 V DC.

VHF air band antenna for the communication band.
Cables.
Switches are mounted on the aircraft yoke.
500 Q headphones.
Low-impedance carbon or dynamic microphone.
Preamplifier for a dynamic microphone.
NEVER connect the transceiver to a power source
using reverse polarity. This connection damages the
transceiver.
To prevent voltage drops, solder or crimp the cable lug
when connecting the DC power cable to the power
supply.
ANTENNA
TRANSCEIVER LOCATION
Select a location which can support the weight of the
transceiver.
NEVERinstall an antenna near any aircraft projection, engine or propeller.
Use a 50 Q , vertically-polarized, VHF air band antenna.
NEVER place the transceiver where normal navigation
of the aircraft may be hindered or where it could cause
bodily injury.
VSWR should be less than 3: 1.
NEVER bend the cables sharply or place the cables
too near the aircraft control cables.
Mount the antenna on a flat metal surface or install a
ground plane of at least 120 cm2(18 in2).
DO NOT place the transceiver where hot or cold air
blows directly on it.
AVOID
placing the transceiver in areas with temper-
atures below
- 20.C or above + 55 .C
.
INTERCOM
INTERLOCK
The intercom function is available by wiring and installing a yoke-mounted communication/intercom switch.
This function facilitates swift contact between the pilot
and co-pilot. 2-pairs of headphones and microphones
are required for pilot and co-pilot.
If 2 transceivers are installed in your aircraft, wiring for
a transmit/receive interlock is required.
To protect the receiver circuit from extremely strong
signals, this function prevents receiving while another
transceiver is transmitting.
COMM1 AND COMM2 STICKERS
When 2 transceivers are installed, to distinguish them
from one another, attach the supplied COMM1 and
COMM2 stickers.

Notes for
hole
making the mounting
The mounting bracket has 0.64 mm (0.025 in) dimples
built in to the top, the bottom and both sides for proper
spacing.
The IC-A200 can be mounted securely in the supplied
mounting bracket.
Mark and cut the mounting holes.
Remember to allow adequate space for installation of
cables and connectors.
To support the mounting bracket, the rear mounting
bosses should be attached to the airframe.
When installing 2 or more transceivers in a stack, the
mounting trays should be 1.27 mm (0.05 in) apart.

MOLEX CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY
The IC-A200 mates with a Molex connector in the rack
mount. Assemble the Molex connector as follows.
.
Contact terminal assembly
1) Strip 4 mm (0.16 in) from each wire for the contact
terminal.
.
.
Polarizing key
Before installing the Molex connector into the mounting
rack, check the polarizing key position between contacts
8 and 9. Refer to Connector front view in WIRING at left.
Contact extraction
Use the Molex contact ejector tool.
2)
Open the HTR-6115 Molex hand crimper with the
engraved side toward you.
3)
Insert the stripped conductor until the insulation is
even with the side of the crimper facing you.
1) Slip the flat narrow blade of the contact ejector tool
under the contact on the mating side of the connector.
4)
Clip the conductor tab until a crimp is obtained.
2)
5)
Move the lead to the crimper anvil.
6)
Place the insulating tab section on the crimper anvil.
3) When the blade is fully in, pull the lead using
moderate pressure.
7)
Crimp again until a sufficient crimp is obtained.
4)
.
Turn the connector upside down to slide the blade
into the stop.
Before reinstalling, make sure the tab extends as
in the figure below.
Contact insertion
Insert the contact terminals into the proper location in
the connector housing. Push the terminal until a click is
heard.
COAXIAL CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY
1) Strip the RG-58 coaxial cable. Soft solder the shield
and center conductor independently.
3)
After soldering, install a ring and a cap.

OPERATION CHECK
Check the following points after transceiver installation.
- Polarity of the power supply.
-
NOinterferencecausedto otherequipment.
- NO noise or interference from other equipment.
- VSWR is less than 3 : 1.
- Communication capability on both the highest and
lowest communication frequency, if possible.

RACK MOUNTING
.
Transceiver installation
Transceiver removal
1) Visually confirm that the metal catch on the top of the
transceiver is as shown in Fig. 1.
The IC-A200 is easily removed from the mounting rack, if
required.
2)
Slowly insert the transceiver into the mounting rack.
1)
Insert a 3/32 in alien wrench into the hole in the front
panel as shown in Fig. 2.
3)
Insert a 3/32 in alien wrench into the hole in the front
panel.
2)
Rotate the wrench counterclockwise until the front
panel moves slightly from the mounting rack as
shown in Fig. 2.
3)
Slowly pull the transceiver out from the mounting
rack.
4)
.
Rotate the wrench clockwise until the screw stops.
DO NOT overtighten the screw.
