Introduction
The DC Singledock is intended for mounting in typical over the road vehicles such as step vans
or semi tractors. Because of the variety of vehicle configurations and personal driver
preferences, no one mounting configuration can suit all applications.
LXE does offer a vehicle mounting bracket that provides vibration isolation, but in many cases
the user may want to provide their own mounting hardware. Off the shelf cell phone mounting
equipment or custom mounting brackets could be used.
The mounting instructions that follow show the use of the LXE bracket and the mounting hole
pattern to be used if a custom mount is to be used.
Before Installation Begins . . .
If the 2325 contains non-rechargeable batteries, do not
connect the power supply to the dock.
Verify you have the following DC Singledock components:

Vehicle 12VDC Connection
Important
Equipment is designed to use 11 to 16.5 volt power source only.
The DC Singledock is designed for use with any automotive DC power source within the range
of 11 V to 16.5 V.
It is recommended that the vehicle cable be connected to an unswitched outlet on the vehicle’s
fuse box. This connection method reduces the chance of interference from the vehicle’s
charging system.
Figure 2 Proper Connection of the Vehicle Cable
Caution:
Correct electrical polarity and grounding is required for safe and proper
installation.
Only connect to a negative ground DC supply circuit.
Not for installation to positive ground circuits.
When the Singledock is connected to an unswitched outlet on the fuse box the 2325 battery will
always receive a charge from the vehicle battery. If the unit is left turned on for extended
periods of time, the 2325 could drain the vehicle battery.
If the Singledock is connected to a switched outlet on the fuse box the 2325 and battery will
only charge when the vehicle is on. This will eliminate the problem of draining the vehicle
battery.
Fuse Replacement
The unit uses a 250V, 1.5A (fast blow), high current interrupting rating fuse that is externally
accessible and user replaceable. Should it need replacement, replace with same size, rating and
type of fuse (such as Bussman AGC-1 1/2).
