Installation Guidelines
These instructions detail tasks for various installation options.
Your tasks include:
• Route and install the gray battery power cable to the vehicle
battery terminals
• Install an in-line fuse holder
• Install the mounting hardware and vehicle dock
• Connect the black dock power cable to the vehicle dock and
the battery power cable. Depending on your installation, this
may simply involve connecting the keyed connector, or it may
involve cutting the connector off and wiring directly to the
fuse block.
Installation Tools Required
• Wire crimping and stripping tool
• An electric drill, #26 drill bit
• Common hand tools set of standard wrenches, flat blade
screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, wire cutter, utility knife, and
small punch.
Vehicle Electrical Considerations
Your vehicle’s electrical system must be in good working
condition.

Installing the Vehicle Battery Power Cable
Use cable clamps or wire-ties at least every 46 cm (18 in) when
installing cables on a vehicle. This eliminates loose or sagging
cables, guards against breakage and ensures that they do not pose
a hazard to the vehicle operator or to other workers.
These instructions detail how to route the cable, install the
in-line fuse, and make the battery connection onto a side
terminal post or top terminal post type battery.
Decide the mounting location for the vehicle dock and the
cables. When you are certain your arrangement works and that
cables will reach from the batteries to the power converter to the
dock, proceed with these steps.
Note: Completely install the vehicle battery (gray)
cable that connects to the vehicle battery before
connecting the vehicle dock power (black) cable.
To install the gray vehicle battery power cable
1 Route the gray battery power cable (P/N 236-106-00X) from
the vehicle dock toward the vehicle battery area.
2 Cut the gray battery power cable near the battery allowing
enough length to reach the battery terminals.
3 Strip the battery power cable jacket back 31-36 cm (12-14
in).
4 Shorten the red wire of the gray battery power cable if desired.
5 Strip 6.4 mm (0.25 in) of insulation from the red wire of the
gray battery power cable.
6 Locate the fuse link assembly (P/N 236-107-001).
7 Securely crimp the fuse link splice onto the red wire.
8 Strip approximately 6.4 mm (0.25 in) of insulation from the
brown wire on the power cable.
9 Crimp the 3/8" terminal ring onto this wire.

Connecting to the Side Battery Terminal
It is very important to make sure that you make the
correct cable to battery connections, because
electrical energy from vehicle batteries can harm
equipment and people.
1 Remove both battery terminal side post bolts from the vehicle
battery.
2 Screw a 3/8" nut as far as it will go onto a 3/8" x 1 1/2" post
furnished in kit.
3 Slip a 3/8" washer onto the battery terminal post.
4 Slide the positive (red wire) fuse link terminal ring from the
battery cable onto the positive (+) battery terminal post.
5 Slip a second 3/8" washer onto the battery terminal post.
6 Slide the vehicle positive battery cable onto the battery
terminal post.
7 Thread the post assembly (Steps 2-6) into the positive battery
terminal. Tighten the battery terminal post securely.
8 Tighten the nut installed in Step 2 to secure washers and
cables firmly in place.

Connecting to the Top Battery Terminal
Because electrical energy from vehicle batteries can
harm equipment and people, it is very important to
make sure that you make the correct cable to
battery connections.
1 Remove the battery clamp posts from the vehicle battery
terminals.
2 Replace the battery clamp posts removed in Step 1 with 5/16"
x 1-1/2" posts and nut furnished in the installation kit.
Tighten nut securely.
3 Slip a 3/8" washer onto the extended end of each battery
clamp bolt.
4 Slide the positive (red wire) fuse link terminal ring from the
battery cable onto the positive (+) battery clamp bolt.
5 Slip a second 3/8" washer onto the battery clamp bolt.
6 Thread a second 3/8" nut onto the battery clamp bolt.
7 Tighten the nut.

Fastening the Ground Strap
The white connector on the battery power cable has a braided
green wire grounding strap that you must fasten to the vehicle’s
sheet metal to ensure proper cable shielding.
To fasten this ground strap
1 Drill a small hole into the metal where you intend to fasten
the ground strap.
2 Use a punch to dimple and enlarge the hole. Make sure the
hole is the same size as the screw.
3 Scrape a small circle of paint from around the hole. Make sure
to expose bare metal to make a good electrical connection.
4 Use a #8 x 5/8” screw and flat washer to secure the green
grounding strap.

Verifying the Dock Power Cable Polarity
Use this illustration to verify that you have
installed your vehicle dock power cables correctly.
Below are the pin descriptions for the notched DC power
connector on the dock power cable. Use a volt meter to verify
whether +12 volts is on pin 2 before you make the final cable
connection.

Performing the Final Connections
1 Connect the keyed rectangular connector end of the dock
power cable P/N 236-105-001 to the previously installed gray
battery cable.
2 Attach the circular notched DC power connector of the dock
power cable to the installed vehicle dock.

Installing an Optional Printer
If you are adding a printer to your system, you need the power
cables to connect the printer and vehicle dock to the vehicle
battery. You must place a separate order for a remote terminal
cable:
• DB 9-pin to DB 25-pin cable (P/N 226-084-002)
This cable allows you to locate the printer and the vehicle dock
up to 1.83 m (6 ft) apart.

Installing the Vehicle Dock and Printer
1 Install a printer-specific “Y” power cable to supply power to
both the vehicle dock and to the printer.
2 Connect one end of this cable to the printer and the other end
to the vehicle dock.
3 Connect the keyed rectangular connector on the printerspecific gray battery cable to the “Y” power cable.
You must also connect the printer-specific data cable between the
vehicle dock and the printer. This cable allows the mobile
computer to communicate with the printer. Plug the appropriate
end of this cable into the vehicle dock and the other end into the
printer.
Installing the Vehicle Dock With Other
Equipment
Have your installation team do your installation. They are
experienced with a wide variety of installations. For example, you
could be installing the vehicle dock with an additional in cab
radio or satellite tracking device. You would need to modify the
black dock cable to connect into a vehicle fuse block that the
installation team would install.
14
Vehicle Dock Kit Installation Instructions
To modify the black dock cable to connect into a vehicle fuse block
• Switch to using the fuse block cable P/N 226-109-003, or
Cut off the white connector from the end of the dock power
cable and wire it directly to the fuse block.
Note the difference in polarity between these two
cables.
