GENERAL:
The Kodiak Mobile KDCF30 intelligent docking station will automatically power and charge
the notebook computer. It is not necessary to push any buttons on the control panel for
unit activation under normal conditions. Simply turning the vehicle ignition to accessory
or starting the vehicle will activate the docking station and any external devices that are
wired to the output trigger of the docking station. Turning the key OFF will automatically
shutdown the docking station and any external devices. Under special circumstances it may
be desirable to control the docking station manually. Use the buttons on the front control
panel to manually power and shutdown the docking station.
OUTPUT TRIGGER: (This optional feature is not required for standard function)
The KDCF30 docking station has an output trigger available on the power cable supplied
with the unit. This trigger can be used in conjunction with a relay to control the power of
other devices such as modems and GPS units. The functionality is as follows: When the
docking station is ON the external units are ON. When the docking station powers OFF
the external units power OFF.
AUTOSHUTDOWN TIMER: (This option can be enabled or disabled by the user)
This docking station has an integrated timer circuit that can be enabled. The shutdown times
are user controlled by setting the DIP switch on the side of the docking station. The timer
controls the output trigger as well as the main docking station power. Once the ignition
switch of the vehicle is shut off, the docking station will begin it’s countdown. Five minutes
prior to reaching the set time, the AutoShutdown warning LED on the control panel will
begin to flash. The user has the option to allow the docking station to power down or to
reset the countdown by pressing the Reset button on the control panel.
LOW VOLTAGE MONITORING: (This option can be enabled or disabled by the user)
The KDCF30 docking station has an integrated low volt detection circuit. This feature
monitors the vehicle battery voltage when enabled. If the vehicle battery voltage drops
below 11.0v the docking station will flash the Low Volt indicator on the control panel and
automatically shut down the docking station along with any external devices that are tied
to the output trigger. The docking station automatically disables this feature if the vehicle
ignition switch is in the ON position or if the vehicle is running.
If a Low Volt condition is detected the docking station will flash the Low Volt indicator
until the condition is corrected. Once corrected press and hold the Reset button for a few
seconds and the unit will power up. If the condition still exists the docking station will
immediately detect the condition and power back down. If this occurs, start the vehicle
and repeat this step.
