The Aura adjustable cellular boosters and kits remove the frustration over dropped calls, limited range, and slow data rates by amplifying incoming and outgoing cellular signals in watercraft of all sizes. The Aura is designed with leading-edge technology to detect and amplify weak incoming signals your cellular device would otherwise miss and to broadcast a significantly stronger signal back to the cell tower. This guide contains all the information you need to get your Aura booster system up and running. BEFORE USE, you MUST REGISTER THIS DEVICE with your wireless provider and have your povider’s consent. Most wireless providers consent to the use of signal boosters. Some providers may not sp. consent to the use of this device on their network. If you are unsure, contact your provider. Theory of Operation The Aura is a high-quality bi-directional booster that boosts cellular signals for areas prone to weak cellular coverage. The Aura works with two antennas: An inside antenna that communicates with your cell phone. An outside antenna that communicates with the cell tower. Signals sent from a cell tower are received by the outside antenna, amplified by the booster and then sent to your phone via the inside antenna. When your phone transmits, the signal is sent to the inside antenna and then sent to the cell tower via the outside antenna. Some cell signal is required for the Aura to enhance cellular signal coverage. The weakest cell signal for the Aura to work is low -100dBm to high -90dBm. dBm is an abbreviation for the power ratio in decibels of the radio power per one milliwatt. To measure your existing cell signal on an Apple iPhone, dial *3001#12345#*and press Call. In the top-left corner, a number appears instead of bars. For Android devices, you can download several apps to measure exact signal strength. In your phone's App Store, search for "check real signal strength" to find a cell signal measurement app. CA-VAT / Aura Cellular Booster Kit Page 1 INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION Aura Package Unpack all package contents, compare them against the package contents list, and check for damage.

Exterior Antenna Interior Antenna Connected Devices CA-VAT / Aura Cellular Booster Kit Page 3 INSTALLATION INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION Configuring Gain Settings 1. Facing the front of your booster, find the Cellular-800 dial on the left side and the PCS-1900 dial on the right side. 2. Set these dials according to the coverage area and the distance between the inside and outside antennas. 3. Inside panel antenna provides up to 1,500 square feet of coverage, or a 25 ft. wide by 100 ft. deep marine craft. Adjust dB Gain according to table below if you cannot achieve maximum separation. Required Between Outside and Inside Antenna tion para e s nna ante • 50dB • 47dB • 44dB • 40dB 8-10 ft. separation 5-7 ft. separation 3-4 ft. separation 1-2 ft. separation Note: As you can see from the table above, acquiring the recommended inside and outside antenna separation optimizes coverage significantly. Panel antenna can be vertically installed 6 ft. under outside antenna with the booster at full dB gain. Inside panel antenna should face away from outside antenna. If panel antenna faces outside antenna, the booster will oscillate and go into Auto Shutdown. Page 4 CA-VAT / Aura Cellular Booster Kit INSTALLATION Installation Steps The Aura booster kit is specially designed for installation on watercraft. Can be used in other applications with appropriate mounting hardware. Step 1. Connect the Outside Antenna - 5412-P The Style 5412-P is a Galaxy series dual-band cellular antenna of 2’ length with stainless steel ferrule. Tools that may be needed: Open-end wrench or adjustable wrench, soldering iron (40-watt min., 75-watt max.), rosin core solder, wire cutters, utility knife, drilling tools. Antenna 5412-P - Installation Instruction 1. Choose a mounting location that is as high as possible, and as free from obstructions, and as far as possible from other antennas and strong sources of RF. 2. For mounting to a mast, use flange mount and suitable hardware. Mount flange mount to a flat, stable location. 3. Drill hole in the middle of the mounting location wide enough in diameter to fit CM240-M cable connector and cable through. 4. Feed N connector end of outside antenna cable through ferrule. Then, screw cable connector to antenna and screw ferrule to antenna base. 5. Mount outside antenna base (screws not provided). To clean the antenna, use mild dishwashing liquid (one that is not harsh to the hands and without ammonia) in lukewarm water. WARNING: Do not let paint solvents, cleaning solvents, or adhesive caulking come in contact with the antenna. Chemicals in these materials might destroy the finish. N connector 1 3 2 CA-VAT / Aura Cellular Booster Kit Page 6 INTRODUCTION INSTALLATION Step 2. Using the CM240-M cable Use the CM240-M cable’s FME connector to connect the outside antenna to the booster connector marked OUTSIDE (see page 2). Hand tighten the connection. Make sure to not coil additional coax cable that might be left over from installation. Step 3. Connect the Inside Antenna A : Standard Wireless Usage - ( Recommended ) - CM248W-M This interior antenna transmits and receives signal to cell phones. This CM248W-M full band panel antenna is a directional antenna designed to cover 2G/3G/4G and WLAN systems for Cellular, PCS, AWS and LTE frequencies. It’s a high gain inside antenna suited for places where the signal needs to be broadcast over a wide area. Antenna 248W-M - Installation Instruction 1. Choose location for mounting antenna on vertical surface. Ideal height from the cabin or deck should be the approximate height of regular cell phone use. 2. Using plate, mark position of desired screw placement with pencil or marker. 3. Screw ( not supply) mounting plate into place with the slide panel protruding towards you. 4. Slide antenna securely onto mounting plate. Note: Be sure to provide enough separation from outside antenna. Panel antenna Page 5 CA-VAT / Aura Cellular Booster Kit INTRODUCTION INSTALLATION B : Low Profile Usage - (Optional ) - CM110W-M 1. The patch antenna is intended for indoor use only. Do not mount on a surface within 4” of metal. 2. Hand tighten the patch antenna to the “inside” connector on the booster. Note: Laboratory tests show that patch antenna can work as close as 2 ft. from outside antenna if the patch antenna is facing away from outside antenna. If booster shows oscillation, turn it down by 3 dBs on the dial of oscillating band. Step 4. Booster Mount If mounting booster, mount on vertical location using booster screw fittings. Step 5. Connect to DC Power 1. The positive red and negative black wired end will connect to watercraft’s power supply - either battery, ignition or fusebox – whichever is most conveniently located. 2. Connect the DC power cord to the booster. Turn on switch to power cord The Power LED lights up to show that the booster is ready for use The Alert LEDs flash up to 15 seconds on each band to show the band is zzzzzzzzzactivated. If the Power light does not go ON, be sure the power supply is working. If the Alert LEDs lights up after the initial activation period, lower the dial above the blinking LED by 3dB (for example, from 50 to 47) and monitor the bars on your cell phone to see whether reception has improved.This process can take a few moments. Monitor the LEDs to make sure they go off. If the Alert LED continue to flash, lower by another 3dB on the blinking band. The booster will shut down automatically to prevent oscillation, and then restarts after 60 seconds. Turn down the Cellular-800 or PCS-1900 dial to prevent the booster from shutting down again. Fail to do so, booster will completely power off after 15 minutes. Manual reset requires powering off booster and powering back on. Failure to do so will cause the booster to power off.
