1. REGULATORY AND SAFETY INFORMATION

1.1 SAFETY SYMBOL CONVENTIONS

The following conventions are used in this manual to alert the user to general safety precautions that must be observed during all phases of operation, service, and repair of this product. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of the product. Harris these standards.

®

assumes no liability for the customer's failure to comply with

The WARNING symbol calls attention to a procedure, practice, or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in personal injury. Do not proceed beyond a WARNING symbol until the conditions identified are fully understood or met.

The CAUTION symbol calls attention to an operating procedure, practice, or the like, which, if not performed correctly or adhered to, could result in damage to the equipment or severely degrade equipment performance.

The NOTE symbol calls attention to supplemental information, which may improve system performance or clarify a process or procedure.

NOTE

1.2 RF ENERGY EXPOSURE AWARENESS AND CONTROL

INFORMATION FOR FCC OCCUPATIONAL USE REQUIREMENTS

Before using the mobile two-way radio, read this important RF energy awareness and control information to ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines.

This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions, where users have full knowledge of their exposure and can exercise control over their exposure to remain below RF exposure limits. This radio is NOT authorized for general population, consumer, or any other use.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Harris could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

This two-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses RF energy or radio waves to send and receive calls. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy. Other forms include, but are not limited to, electric power, sunlight, and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other

7

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

forms of electromagnetic energy, which, when used improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material.

Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with organizations to develop standards for exposure to RF energy. These standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial margins of protection. All two-way radios marketed in North America are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet government-established RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also recommend specific operating instructions to users of two-way radios. These instructions are important because they inform users about RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it. Please refer to the following websites for more information on what RF energy exposure is and how to control exposure to assure compliance with established RF exposure limits: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html

http://www.osha.gov./SLTC/radiofrequencyradiation/index.html

1.2.1 Federal Communications Commission Regulations

Before it was marketed in the United States, the Unity

®

mobile Low Band P Power Amplifier (LPA) was tested to ensure compliance with FCC RF energy exposure limits for mobile two-way radios. When twoway radios are used as a consequence of employment, the FCC requires users to be fully aware of and able to control their exposure to meet occupational requirements. Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a label directing users to specific user awareness information. The radio has an RF exposure product label. Also, this Installation, the Product Safety Manual, and the applicable Operator’s Manual include information and operating instructions required to control RF exposure and to satisfy compliance requirements.

1.3 COMPLIANCE WITH RF EXPOSURE STANDARDS

The UnityXG-100 LPA mobile Low Band Power Amplifier System is designed and tested to comply with a number of national and international standards and guidelines regarding human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the IEEE and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at duty-cycle times of up to 50% (50% transmit, 50% receive) for the Unity mobile radio equipment, and up to 100% for the LBPA radio equipment. The radio equipment is authorized by the FCC for occupational use. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with the FCC exposure guidelines, the radio’s antenna radiates measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting (talking), not when it is receiving (listening), or in standby mode.

The Unity mobile low band VHF amplifier complies with the following RF energy exposure standards and guidelines:

Table 1-1 lists the recommended minimum safe lateral distances for a controlled

environment and for unaware bystanders in an uncontrolled environment, from

transmitting antennas (i.e., monopoles over a ground plane, or dipoles). Table 1-1 has

the distances for the LBPA on a per antenna basis. This data is based upon the mobile radio installed in a motor vehicle with the radio transmitting at its rated RF power level. Transmit only when unaware bystanders are at least the uncontrolled recommended minimum safe lateral distance away from the mobile radio’s transmitting antenna.

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

1.6 COMMON HAZARDS

The operator of any mobile radio should be aware of certain hazards common to the operation of vehicular radio transmissions. Possible hazards include but are not limited to:

Explosive Atmospheres — Just as it is dangerous to fuel a vehicle with its engine running, be sure to turn the radio OFF while fuelling the vehicle. If the radio is mounted in the trunk of the vehicle, DO

NOT carry fuel containers in the trunk.

Areas with potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly marked. Turn the radio

OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. It is rare, but not impossible that the radio or its accessories could generate sparks.

Interference To Vehicular Electronic Systems — Electronic fuel injection systems, electronic antiskid braking systems, electronic cruise control systems, etc., are typical of the types of electronic devices that can malfunction due to the lack of protection from radio frequency (RF) energy present when transmitting. If the vehicle contains such equipment, consult the dealer for the make of vehicle and enlist the dealer’s aid in determining if such electronic circuits perform normally when the radio is transmitting.

Electric Blasting Caps — To prevent accidental detonation of electric blasting caps, DO NOT use two-way radios within 1000 feet (305 meters) of blasting operations. Always obey the “Turn Off

Two-Way Radios” (or equivalent) signs posted where electric blasting caps are being used (OSHA

Standard: 1926.900).

Radio Frequency Energy — To prevent burns or related physical injury from radio frequency energy, do not operate the transmitter when anyone outside of the vehicle is within the minimum safe

distance from the antenna as specified in Table 1-1 (as applicable). Refer to Section 1.2 for additional

information.

Vehicles Powered By Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas — Radio installation in vehicles powered by liquefied petroleum gas, where the LP gas container is located in the trunk or other sealed-off space within the interior of the vehicle, must conform to the National Fire Protection Association standard

NFPA 58. This requires:

The space containing the radio equipment must be isolated and sealed from the space containing

LP gas containers and their fittings.

Outside filling connections must be used for the LP gas container.

The LP gas container space shall be vented to the outside of the vehicle.

Vehicles Equipped with Airbags — For driver and passenger safety, avoid mounting the radio’s control head (or any other component) above or near airbag deployment areas. In addition to driverside and passenger-side front-impact airbags, some vehicles may also be equipped with side-impact airbags. For occupant safety, verify the location of all airbags within the vehicle before installing the radio equipment.

1.7 SAFE DRIVING RECOMMENDATIONS

The American Automobile Association (AAA) advocates the following key safe driving recommendations:

Read the literature on the safe operation of the radio.

 Keep both hands on the steering wheel and the microphone in its hanger whenever the vehicle is in motion.

 Place calls only when the vehicle is stopped.

 When talking from a moving vehicle is unavoidable, drive in the slower lane. Keep conversations brief.

 If a conversation requires taking notes or complex thought, stop the vehicle in a safe place and continue the call.

 Whenever using a mobile radio, exercise caution.

1.8 OPERATING RULES REGULATIONS

Two-way radio systems must be operated in accordance with the rules and regulations of the local, regional, or national government.

In the United States, this Unity mobile low band VHF amplifier must be operated in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Operators of two-way radio equipment must be thoroughly familiar with the rules that apply to the particular type of radio operation.

Following these rules helps eliminate confusion, assures the most efficient use of the existing radio channels, and results in a smoothly functioning radio network.

When using a two-way radio, remember these rules:

Under U.S. law, operation of an unlicensed radio transmitter within the jurisdiction of the

United States may be punishable by a fine of up to $10,000, imprisonment for up to two (2) years, or both.

 It is a violation of FCC rules to interrupt any distress or emergency message. The radio operates in much the same way as a telephone “party line.” Therefore, always listen to make sure the channel is clear before transmitting. Emergency calls have priority over all other messages. If someone is sending an emergency message – such as reporting a fire or asking for help in an accident, do not transmit unless assistance can be offered.

The use of profane or obscene language is prohibited by Federal law.

 It is against the law to send false call letters or false distress or emergency messages. The FCC requires keeping conversations brief and confined to business. Use coded messages whenever possible to save on-the-air time.

 Using the radio to send personal messages (except in an emergency) is a violation of FCC rules. Send only essential messages.

 It is against Federal law to repeat or otherwise make known anything overheard on the radio.

Conversations between others sharing the channel must be regarded as confidential.

12

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

 The FCC requires self-identification at certain specific times by means of call letters. Refer to the rules that apply to the particular type of operation for the proper procedure.

 No changes or adjustments shall be made to the equipment except by an authorized or certified electronics technician.

1.9 OPERATING TIPS

The following conditions tend to reduce the effective range of two-way radios and should be avoided whenever possible:

 Operating the radio in areas of low terrain, or while under power lines or bridges.

 Obstructions such as mountains and buildings.

NOTE

In areas where transmission or reception is poor, communication improvement may sometimes be obtained by moving a few yards in another direction, or moving to a higher elevation.

A 3-wire Controller Area Network (CAN) cable provides radio-to-control head(s) interconnection. One end of the CAN cable connects to a CAN port on the rear of the Unity mobile radio unit (MRU) and the other end connects to a CAN port on the rear of the control head. Between the radio and the control head, the CAN link carries digitized microphone and speaker audio and controlling data such as button presses and radio messages. For proper operation, the CAN link must be terminated appropriately on each end.

The control head provides the user/operator interface for the XG-100M Unity mobile with its companion

XG-100LPA VHF Low Band Power Amplifier.

Figure 3-1: Simplified Block Diagram Unity Low Band PA

3.3.2 CH-100 Control Head

The CH-100 control head features a 4.3-inch touch screen high-contrast sunlight-readable LCD color display, providing an easy-to-use menu-driven operator interface. The front panel of the CH-100 head features an easy-to-use on/off/volume control and group/channel selection controls, an emergency button, a home button, a USB programming port, a transmit/receive busy indicator, and a microphone connector.

The CH-100 also features a Bluetooth

®

wireless interface for connection of optional equipment and it provides support for radio and control head programming via the wireless connection.

The front panel of the CH-100 is shown in Figure 10-1 on page 56 and its rear panel is shown in Figure

10-2. Connectors located on the rear panel include a DC power connector, two (2) CAN port connectors

used for CAN link interconnections, an external speaker connector, a 9-pin serial port connector for connecting optional equipment such as a mobile data terminal, and a 25-pin multi-function accessory connector.

3.3.3 CH-721 Control Head

The CH-721 control head, shown in Figure 10-4, features a large 3-line graphical vacuum-fluorescent

display, front panel controls, and buttons for user control of the mobile radio, an internal high-power audio amplifier to drive an externally-connected speaker, and a front panel microphone connector. It

17

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

features a 12-key numeric keypad that provides Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) keypad functionality and operator system/group selection control, three (3) preset buttons, and an emergency/home button.

Shown in Figure 10-5 on page 58, the CH-721 System model control head has several connectors located

on its rear panel. These connectors include a DC power connector, two (2) CAN port connectors used for

CAN link interconnections, an external speaker connector, a 9-pin serial port connector for connecting optional equipment such as a mobile data terminal, and a 25-pin multi-function accessory connector.

3.4 OPERATING POWER

The XG-100M Unity mobile radio with its companion XG-100LPA VHF Low Band Power Amplifier is powered by an external +13.6-volt (nominal) DC power source. In mobile applications, the motor vehicle’s electrical system is used as the source of DC power. The Unity mobile radio and its companion

XG-100LPA are separately fused. For detailed specifications, see Section 2 of this manual which begins on page 14.

The control head(s) connected to the radio is powered by the same DC power source, but fused separately from the XG-100M and XG-100LPA. When the control head is powered-up by the operator, it “wakes up” the MRU radio by transmitting data to the radio over the CAN link.

3.5 RADIO PROGRAMMING

Radio Personality Manager Release R11A or later is required to program the XG-

100M/XG-100LPA radio for VHF Low Band transmit operation.

NOTE

Unless otherwise stated, all radio installation and test procedures presented in this manual assume the radio has been programmed by radio network administration personnel before it is delivered to radio installation personnel. Programming instructions are beyond the scope of this manual.

The Radio Personality Manager (RPM) software application TQS3385 (part number SK-104768-001) is used to program the XG-100M/XG-100LPA for VHF Low Band conventional operation. RPM can also be used to flash program new operating software (i.e., firmware) into an XG-100M mobile radio. Refer to the radio’s maintenance manual for additional information.

For additional RPM information, refer to its built-in online help and/or RPM Software Release Notes, publication number MS-012550-001(TQS3385).

An XG-100M radio with a CH-100 control head can use a TIA/EIA/RS-232C serial cable connection, a

USB serial cable connection, or a Bluetooth wireless connection for programming operations. The

TIA/EIA/RS-232C serial cable connects to the 9-pin D-subminiature (DB-9) connector on the rear of the radio. For USB and Bluetooth links, the CH-100 control head provides the connection path.

18

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

An XG-100M radio with a CH-721 control head must use a TIA/EIA/RS-232C serial cable connection for programming. The serial cable connects to the 9-pin D-subminiature (DB-9) connector on the rear of the radio.

NOTE

A USB or a Bluetooth link is the preferred connection method for an XG-100M radio with a

CH-100 control head. These links support programming of up to ten (10) personalities/mission plans into the radio. Only one personality/mission plan is active at a time.

An XG-100M radio with a CH-721 control head can only have one (1) personality/mission plan. It is always active.

A personality/mission plan loaded into the radio via a TIA/EIA/RS-232C serial link cannot be extracted (read back) via a USB or Bluetooth link.

Personality for the VHF Low Band power output is setup in RPM by selecting the

Sets->Conventional

Frequency Set

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

6.3 LOCATING COMPONENTS

Plan the mounting locations of all components (LBPA, MRU, CH-100/CH-721, antennas, cables, etc.) and determine the routes for all wiring and cables. Particularly consider the connection of the control head for planning purposes.

 Determine the customer’s preferences, if any, for location of components. Comply with these preferences as long as they are consistent with safety recommendations and guidelines presented in this manual, and other generally accepted professional radio installation practices.

Nominal dimensions for the LBPA, MRU, and the CH-100/CH-721 are listed in Section 2.1 of this manual (page 14). These dimensions do not include any clearance space required for cabling, air

circulation, access to mounting hardware, etc. Always plan for and include adequate clearance around the radios.

 The LBPA and MRU must be located and mounted within approximately twelve (12) inches of each other.

 Verify sufficient clearance behind the radios is provided so cables will not be stressed, crushed, twisted, or bent at severe angles. Also, the front and sides must have clearance for air circulation, access to mounting hardware, etc.

 Connections at the LBPA and MRU are made through both “pigtail” type cables exiting the rear of its two radios, and panel-mount type connectors. This design minimizes the stresses associated with mating connections and it allows for easy connector mating. However, stresses can still be induced if adequate service looping is not employed. Connections to the control head is made with connectors mounted on the rear panel of each head, instead of “pigtail” type cables.

 Antennas: The radios’ two transmit/receive antennas must be at least three (3) feet (0.92 meters)

apart. However, further antenna separation is recommended, if possible. Refer to Section 8 (page 40)

for antenna installation details.

All cables should have a service loop near each connector end. Do not bend the cables at severe angles near the connector end. After all components are installed, verify no cable is under any tension. Failure to do so may lead to damaged cables, causing intermittent radio operation or complete radio failure.

7. MOUNTING THE RADIO EQUIPMENT

This section provides details on mounting the Low Band Power Amplifier and radio equipment assembly.

The preferred mounting is on top of a firm, flat surface. See

Figure 6-3

,

Figure 6-4

, and refer to the

respective wiring diagram at the end of this manual as necessary. Control head installation procedures are

included in Section 10 that begins on page 55.

The Low Band Power Amplifier and radio equipment combination weighs approximately 15- pounds

(6.8 kilograms). This includes the LBPA, MRU radio, and mounting brackets. Consider this weight when

selecting a mounting surface. Refer to the specifications listed in Section 2.1 (page 14) of this manual for

radio and control head weight specifications.

At a minimum, the mounting surface should be 16-gauge (approximately 1/16-inch thick) steel sheet metal. Mounting to plastic or other material with low tensile and shear strength could lead to an unsafe and/or failed mounting condition, turning the

Unity mobile and Low Band Power Amplifier and its base bracket into a projectile during a high-shock incident such as a motor vehicle accident. If the selected mounting surface does not meet the minimum 16-gauge steel sheet metal requirement, the surface should be reinforced with a metal backing plate (not supplied) or it should be reinforced using some other approved mounting method.

Though generally mounted in a trunk or remote location, the Unity mobile and Low Band

Power Amplifier must be kept away from heat sources. Mounting it in a location which is out of direct sunlight is recommended but not required. Adequate ventilation space must be provided to the rear and side fins. The radio reduces its RF output power when its ambient temperature exceeds approximately +140 o

Fahrenheit (+60 o

Celsius).

Before drilling holes and/or installing mounting screws, verify these operations will not damage or interfere with any existing vehicle component (fuel tank, fuel line, transmission housing, existing vehicle wiring, etc.). Always check to see how far the mounting screws will extend below the mounting surface prior to installation. Always deburr drilled holes before installing screws.

Prior to beginning the installation, verify the Unity mobile has the proper version of software installed and it has been configured for customer usage.

NOTE

7.1 INSTALL THE MOUNTING BRACKETS

Two base brackets are included with the installation kits. One bracket (1000003678) is used to mount the

LBPA and the other base bracket (FM103111V1) is used to mount the radio. However, the preferred installation method is to mount the radio above the LBPA using the LBPA base bracket and the two (2) extension brackets (FM-018205) included in the LBPA installation kit.

Typically, the base brackets are mounted in the vehicle’s trunk, on the top surface of a trunk tray, or on the trunk floor. However, it can be suspended from the trunk’s rear deck if the surface is completely flat, does not require any shimming, and the gauge of deck’s sheet metal is high (16-guage minimum).

33

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

NOTE

The RF cable (W90-0223-001) which interconnects the MRU VHF Low Band connector to the RF connector on the LBPA Radio Connector is approximately 12-inches long. If the units are mounted separately, they must be located so the respective connectors of the cable can mate to the connectors on the rear of the units. Typically, both brackets should be mounted within approximately twelve (12) inches of each. The brackets/radios may be oriented parallel or perpendicular to each other.

When installed in a bracket, the radio and LBPA protrude several inches from the bracket’s front and back edges. Therefore, when selecting an exact mounting location, verify sufficient distance at the front and back for this plus additional clearance. A minimum distance of three (3) inches is required from the rear edge of the bracket; however, four (4) inches or more is recommended to make radio installation and removal easier. A minimum distance of two (2) inches is recommended from the front edge of each bracket. The Extension Brackets are left/right symmetrical and the Base Brackets are front/back symmetrical.

(Dimensions are in Inches)

Figure 7-3: Extension Bracket FM-018205 (Part of XM-ZN2G Installation Kit)

1. Select a location for the base bracket.

If the units are being mounted separately, select a location for the MRU’s Base Bracket and a location for the LBPA’s Base Bracket. As previously stated, both brackets should be mounted within approximately twelve (12) inches of each other so the section of the cable which interconnects the two radios will have sufficient length.

2. Use the Base Bracket(s) as a template or use the dimensional information shown in Figure 7-1 and/or

Figure 7-2, mark and drill mounting holes into the mounting surface for the bracket(s).

3. Deburr all newly drilled mounting holes.

4. Set bracket or brackets in place, install, and tighten the mounting screws.

For the LBPA Base Bracket 1000003678, use at least six (6) screws per bracket: Four (4) in the screw holes of a bracket’s side tabs and two (2) in its center-most screw holes. If the installation prevents the installation of six screws, a minimum of four screws installed in the side tabs’ holes is required.

For the MRU Base Bracket FM103111V1, use four (4) screws to secure the bracket to the mounting surface.

As all installations differ, bracket-to-vehicle mounting screws are not included. Using #10 stainlesssteel machine screws, stainless steel flat washers, and stainless steel self-locking nuts is recommended. Alternately, #10 stainless steel self-drilling screws, and stainless-steel flat washers may be used to speed installation time and/or if the underside of the mounting surface is not easily accessible. Self-drilling screws such as “TEK” screws do not require drilling of a pilot hole prior to installation.

NOTE

Do not use common self-threading sheet metal screws because they will loosen over time with vehicle vibrations.

36

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

5. Verify both base brackets are firmly secured to the mounting surface. A secure mount prevents unreasonable vibration, which could damage the radio, cause its cable connections to loosen, or both.

6. XG-100LPA mounted with XG-100M Only: a.

Attach an Extension Bracket (FM-018205) to each side of LBPA Base Bracket (1000003678). b.

Push each Extension Bracket firmly down into the Base Bracket so it is firm and flush. c.

Secure the Extension Bracket to the Base Bracket using two #8-32 pan-head screws per Extension

Bracket and tighten.

7.2 MOUNT THE EQUIPMENT INTO THE BRACKETS

7.2.1 MRU and LBPA Mounting

Mount the MRU and LBPA into the brackets using either the LBPA and MRU stacking procedure or the mounting separately procedure.

To Stack LBPA and MRU using the LBPA Base Bracket:

Install the LBPA and the MRU into the LBPA Base Bracket using the following procedure. An exploded

view assembly diagram is shown in Figure 7-4.

1. Slide the LBPA into the Base Bracket 1000003678. The LBPA connector end must face towards the cabling area of the installation.

2. Secure the LBPA to the bracket using six (6) M5 Philips-head screws (SC-018424), three (3) per side.

These screws have a captive-type (SEMS) lock washer. Tighten all six (6) screws with a screwdriver until the lock washer on each screw is fully compressed, and the LBPA is firm and flush between the bracket sides.

3. Slide the mobile radio between the Extension Brackets FM-018205. The connector end of the radio must face towards the cabling area of the radio installation.

4. Secure the radio into the brackets using six (6) M5 Philips-head screws (SC-018424), three (3) screws per radio side.

These screws have a captive-type (SEMS) lock washer. Tighten all six (6) screws with a screwdriver until the lock washer on each screw is fully compressed, and the radio is firm and flush between the brackets.

5. Check the mounting area for proper clearance for cable service looping and for air circulation, plus an area to secure and stow the excess cable lengths.

NOTE

Proper mounting is one factor that ensures optimal radio performance. An improperly mounted radio may experience degradation in the quality of voice and data communications.

39

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

8. ANTENNA INSTALLATION

8.1 ANTENNA MOUNTING LOCATIONS

For a standard motor vehicle, the MRU antenna must be installed at or near the center of the vehicle’s rooftop, and the LBPA antenna must be installed in the center of the vehicle’s trunk lid.

At this time, review all information presented in the Regulatory and Safety section of

this manual (begins on page 7). Both transmit-receive antennas must be installed in

accordance with the guidelines presented. To reduce human exposure to radio

frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy during transmit mode, refer to Table 1-1 and

observe MPE data. During installation, refer to Figure 8-1 and Figure 8-2 to determine

the best possible antenna mounting locations.

Antennas must be mounted in locations on the vehicle as illustrated and described in this section. See

Table 5-5and Table 5-6 for antenna descriptions. Always follow manufacturer’s instructions when

mounting an antenna. References to locations  through  apply to the locations illustrated in Figure 8-1

and Figure 8-2. Minimum LBPA-to-MRU antenna separation distances as specified in these figures and

elsewhere in this manual must be maintained.

8.1.1 Direct Center or Center-Rear of Rooftop for MRU Antenna

The center of the vehicle’s roof is the best location for the MRU antenna (location ). For optimal performance, the mounting area under the antenna must be flat with a minimum radius of six (6) inches of metal ground plane. Locating the antenna directly in the center of the roof will minimize human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.

If obstructions such as a light bar or another antenna prevent the MRU antenna from being mounted in the direct center of the roof, the antenna should be mounted a minimum of one foot away from and behind the obstruction but in the middle of the roof with respect to the left and right sides of the vehicle (location ).

The two transmit and receive antennas must be at least three (3) feet (0.92 meters) apart. See

Figure 8-1 and Figure 8-2. The radio-end of each antenna cable must be labeled so each

cable is connected to the correct radio antenna connector.

NOTE

8.1.2 Center of Trunk Lid for LBPA Antenna

For a standard motor vehicle, the LBPA antenna should be located in the center of the vehicle’s trunk lid

(location ). Locating the antenna directly in the center of the lid will provide the best coverage, and minimize human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.

The antenna cable of Harris-approved antennas should never be cut to a shorter length. Instead, excess cable must be tied and stowed. This not only prevents the antenna from radiating above its intended or configured power, but it also allows for future installation considerations such as a relocation of the mobile radio within the vehicle. Installations requiring longer cables are to be treated as custom and separately specified.

8.2.1 Installing NMO Antenna Mounts AN-125001-001, -002, -003 and -004

These NMO style antenna mounts can each be used with several different antenna elements. Only limited access under the mounting location is typically required. The installation procedure is presented in

Section 8.2.1.3.

8.2.1.1 Standard NMO Antenna Mounts AN-125001-001 and AN-125001-002

These standard ¾-inch NMO antenna mounts require a ¾-inch hole in a relatively flat area of the vehicle body, with a vehicle metal thickness of between 0.020 and 0.040 inches. AN-125001-002 has a very-lowloss coax cable (LMR-195 or equivalent).

8.2.1.2 Thick-Roof NMO Antenna Mounts AN-125001-003 and AN-125001-004

Both of these thick-roof NMO antenna mounts use either a ⅜-inch or a ¾-inch mounting hole in a relatively flat area of the vehicle body, with a vehicle metal thickness of between 0.040 and 0.1875 inches

( 3

/

16

inch maximum thickness). AN-125001-004 has a very-low-loss coax cable (LMR-195 or equivalent).

NOTE

For thick-roof NMO antenna mounts AN-125001-003 or AN-125001-004, using a ⅜-inch mounting hole will require better access to the underside of the mounting location than if a

¾-inch hole is used. This is because, in the case of a ⅜-inch hole, the antenna mount’s bushing assembly must be inserted from the underside of the mounting surface.

When using a ¾-inch mounting hole to mount thick-roof NMO antenna mounts

AN-125001-003 or AN-125001-004, the thickness of the mounting surface must be at least

⅛-inch (0.125-inch minimum thickness). This requirement is due to the thickness of the alignment ring used to center the bushing assembly within the ¾-inch mounting hole.

8.2.1.3 Installation Procedure for Mounts AN-125001-001 through -004

1. Select the antenna mounting location in accordance with the information presented in Sections 1 and

8.1 of this manual. If necessary, contact the Technical Assistance Center for assistance. See page 21

for TAC contact information.

2. Verify no obstructions exist immediately below the respective mounting location on the underside of the vehicle body, such as vehicle ribbing/body framing, a wiring harness, air bag equipment, etc. Also verify there is a sufficient access path and clearance for the mount’s coax cable. If there is an obstruction or insufficient clearance, select another nearby mounting location.

3. Measure and mark the center point of the selected antenna mounting location. Be sure to center the mark from side-to-side of the vehicle.

43

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

4. Obtain a hole saw specifically designed for drilling NMO mounting holes of the required diameter.

(e.g., Antenex/Laird Technologies model HS34 or equivalent for a ¾-inch hole; Antenex/Laird

Technologies model HS38 or equivalent for a ⅜-inch hole).

5. If the vehicle’s headliner panel, carpet, seats, or otherwise, is below the mounting location, move or remove the headliner panel, etc. as necessary to protect it. Alternately, apply a heat-resistant mask material (such as a fiberglass mat or thin sheet metal with masked edges) as required to “catch” the metal shavings and the metal plug (if any) produced by the hole saw. The plug (if any) may be relatively hot if/when it drops out of the saw upon completion of the hole drilling process. ⅜-inch diameter hole saws generally produce only shavings, not plugs.

6. Using the hole saw and a drill, drill a hole at the marked hole center point. Position the drill square to

(i.e., 90 degrees from) the vehicle mounting surface so paint immediately outside of the perimeter of the hole is evenly removed.

Excessive use of the hole saw and/or failure to position the drill square with (i.e., at a

90-degree angle from) the vehicle mounting surface may result in damage to the metal mounting surface, in the area immediately outside of the perimeter of the hole.

7. Ensure the saw removed the paint immediately around the hole as the drilling operation completes. If not, do so by reinserting the saw completely into the hole and spinning it as required. This allows proper grounding via the mount’s lock nut on the top of the mounting surface. On the bottom of the mounting surface, the “teeth” of the mount’s bushing assembly may not provide a good ground due to thick vehicle undercoating, thick primer, oxidation/rust, etc.

8. For a ¾-inch hole, feed the unterminated end of the mount’s coax cable into the hole from the top surface of the vehicle until the mount’s bushing assembly is in position to drop into the hole. The bushing should be tilted at a slight angle and fed into the hole. The threaded shank of the mount’s bushing assembly will not fall through a ¾-inch hole.

9. For a ⅜-inch hole, feed the threaded shank of the mount’s bushing assembly into the hole from the underside of the mounting surface. Hold it into position until the lock nut is installed.

10. If installing a thick-roof antenna mount (⅜-inch shank) into a ¾-inch hole, place the alignment ring onto the threaded shank of the mount. This ring has an approximate ¾-inch outside diameter.

11. A tube of synthetic lubricant is included with the antenna mount. Apply this lubricant to the mount’s rubber O-ring. Do not get any lubricant on the center contact of the mount’s bushing assembly.

12. As illustrated in Figure 8-3 and Figure 8-4, add the O-ring (C) and lock nut (D) to the top of the

mount’s bushing assembly (A). With the O-ring in the groove in the underside of the lock nut, thread the lock nut onto the bushing assembly. Be sure the O-ring remains in the groove before tightening the lock nut.

16

-inch open-end wrench, tighten the lock nut until it fully compresses the O-ring and makes good contact with the vehicle mounting surface. The groove’s ridges on the bottom of the lock nut must make full contact with the unpainted metal surface of the vehicle.

14. Install the antenna element per the procedure in Section 8.2.4.

45

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

8.2.2 Installing NMO Magnetic Antenna Mounts AN-125001-007 and -008

Thoroughly clean the bottom of the magnetic mount and the selected vehicle mounting surface by removing all dust, dirt, etc.

Carefully place the magnet mount onto the metal surface of the vehicle at the selected location. The coax cable exiting the mount’s base should be orientated towards the point at which it will enter into the interior of the vehicle. Do not try to reposition it by sliding it on a painted metal surface.

Route the mount’s coax cable to the radio location, passing it by the trunk lid’s perimeter gasket, door perimeter gasket, etc., as necessary.

Install the antenna element per the procedure in Section 8.2.4.

To remove a magnetic antenna mount, hold it at the bottom of its base and tilt it at an angle to release the magnetic attraction force. Do not pull on the mount’s coax cable. Do not

drag the mount across the mounting surface.

8.2.3 Installing all Other Antenna Mounts

For any other type of antenna mount not covered in the previous sections, such as GPS combination antennas, install the mount in accordance with the installation instructions included with the mount.

8.2.4 Attaching NMO Antenna Elements

1. Clean the top surface of the NMO mount and the surface of the vehicle immediately around the mount.

2. Place the gasket included with the antenna element (not pictured in Figure 8-3 or Figure 8-4) around

the mount and against the surface of the vehicle. If a lubricant or sealant was included with the gasket, apply it to the gasket before placing the gasket.

3. Apply the antenna element to the top of the mount and tighten it in a clock-wise direction (as viewing from the top). Use an appropriate wrench if required. Do not over-tighten.

NOTE

If the mobile radio installation employs a ¼-wave unity-gain antenna (part number

AN102800V1 or AN-225006-001), the antenna element must be trimmed to the proper length in order to minimize antenna system Voltage Standing-Wave Ratio (VSWR). Refer

to Figure 8-5 on page 47 and/or the instructions included with the antenna for trimming

instructions.

4. Install a placard (not supplied) on the vehicle’s dash panel, in accordance with the following

CAUTION. Place the placard in plain view of the vehicle operator’s position.

Before entering any automatic vehicle (“car”) wash equipment, remove the antenna elements from the antenna mounts, and secure the elements in a safe location inside the vehicle. This will prevent the wash equipment from damaging the elements and/or mounts.

After exiting the wash equipment, thoroughly dry the top of the mount before re-installing the elements.

5. Continue with the connection procedure presented in the next section.

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

8.2.5 Connecting the Mobile Antennas

1. Label the radio-end of each antenna cable. The cable from the rooftop-mounted antenna (highest of the two) should be labeled “MRU Antenna” and the cable from the trunk-mounted antenna (lowest of the two) should be labeled “LBPA Antenna.”

2. Route each antenna cable from the antenna to the rear of the respective radio. Remove headliner panel, other interior panels, etc., as necessary. Keep each cable out of casual contact areas from persons within the vehicle. Tie and stow as necessary to protect the cables.

Use the full length of coaxial cable included with each antenna. Never cut the cable to a shorter length, but rather coil any excess. Reducing the length of cable increases the output power radiated by the antenna, thereby exceeding the Maximum Permissible

Exposure (MPE) allowance regulated by the FCC.

The MRU and LBPA antennas are not interchangeable. Therefore, label the radio-end

of each cable for future reference, as described in step 1.

3. Using an appropriate crimp tool, crimp the supplied TNC RF connector to the end of each antenna

cable. See Figure 8-6 for crimping instructions.

48

(VS-AN-025167-010 Rev. A)

Figure 8-6: Crimping Instructions for TNC RF Connector (Dimensions in Inches)

4. Connect each antenna cable’s TNC plug-type (male) connector to the respective radio’s TNC receptacle-type (female) RF connector at the rear of the radio. The MRU antenna cable (labeled

“MRU Antenna”) must be connected to the “MB ANT” connector on the rear of the radio. The LBPA

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

antenna cable (labeled “LBPA Antenna”) must be connected to the “ANTENNA” connector on the

LBPA. Mate the connectors and turn the plug clockwise until finger-tight.

This will be a temporary connection until the radios and antennas can be tested after the installation is

complete (in accordance with test procedures presented in Section 17). The antennas should be connected

now in case of accidental transmission.

8.2.6 Connect RF Cable between Unity Mobile MRU and Low Band PA

As shown in the rear view of

Figure 6-4

(page 32), an RF cable must be connected between the mobile

radio (MRU) and the Low Band Power Amplifier. Obtain and connect this cable as follows:

1. Get the RF Cable W90-0223-001 from the XM-ZN2G installation kit (refer to Table 5-2 on page 23).

2. Connect one end of the cable to the MRU’s Low Band BNC connector labeled “LB ANT.”

3. Connect the other end of the cable to the Low Band Power Amplifier BNC connector labeled

“RADIO.”

4. Ensure both BNC connectors are secure.

49

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

9. DC POWER INSTALLATION

Refer to the wiring diagram at the end of this manual as necessary when performing the wiring procedures presented in this section.

NOTE

9.1 OVERVIEW OF ON/OFF POWER WIRING CONFIGURATIONS

Radio on/off power control is accomplished by the control head. When the control head is turned on, it

“wakes-up” the MRU via data activity on the CAN link. The MRU automatically powers-up the LBPA when the MRU is powered on. The following power wiring configurations are supported:

Any DC input power provided to the radio shall be no higher or lower than

13.6 volts DC  10%. The DC input power should be free and clear of any AC noise or DC spikes above 18 volts. If the vehicle cannot meet these requirements, then DC conditioning will be required before any DC power is connected to the radio. This includes conditioning for both the radio’s main DC power input lead and for its switched ignition sense power input. DC conditioning can be accomplished by a noise filter or DC isolation equipment such as Harris part number FL-018314-001 or FL-018314-002, or similar units with equal specifications. The fuse must be placed in-line before any noise filter. Contact TAC for additional information.

Radio turns on and off automatically with vehicle’s ignition switch/key — This configuration allows the on/off state of the vehicle’s ignition switch/key to control the on/off power state of the radio. The white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable is connected to a fused switched power source, typically identified as vehicle “Accessory” power. This source must switch on (up to positive

(+) battery voltage potential) when the vehicle’s ignition switch/key turns on, and it must switch off

(to near zero volts) when the ignition switch/key turns off. The required fuse rating is 3 amperes.

When using this configuration, the control head’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

Radio turns on and off with a manual switch — This configuration is used when, for example, the radio must remain on even when the ignition key must be removed from the vehicle and a separate on/off switch is acceptable. The white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable is connected to one side of a manually-controlled switch, and the other side of this switch is connected to unswitched and fused vehicle power. The required fuse rating is 3 amperes. When using this configuration, the control head’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

Radio turns on with control head’s on/off/volume control (“hot wired”) — This configuration allows radio on/off power control only via the control head’s on/off/volume control. It may be desired if, for example, the radio must remain on even when the ignition key must be removed from the vehicle and a separate on/off switch is not desired and/or not acceptable. The white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable must be connected to unswitched and fused vehicle power. The required fuse rating is 3 amperes.

50

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

The MRU, the LBPA, and the control head require separately-fused main DC power. This is the red wire of each DC power cable. The switch power source to the control head is also separately fused. This is the white wire of the control head’s DC power cable. In-line type fuses and fuse holders are utilized.

9.2 POWER INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

9.2.1 Radios DC Power Cables and Main Fuse Holders Installation

Each radio’s DC power cable has a connector which mates to the radio’s power cable, a 20-foot red wire for the main power connection, a 20-foot white wire which is not used/not connected in this application, and a 4-foot black wire for the ground connection.

Cable CA-012365-001 is used with the XG-100M and has a 3-pin connector. It is supplied with HFB-type waterproof fuse holders, two AGC-type fuses, and non-insulated ring terminals.

Cable 14002-0167-01 is used with the XG-100LPA and has a 5-pin connector. It is supplied with an

HEB-type water-resistant fuse holder, heat shrink tubing, a BAF-type 30-amp fuse, and non-insulated ring terminals.

The following installation procedures are recommended:

9.2.1.1 Black Wire Connections (Ground Wires)

1. Connect the radio’s DC Power Cable to the MRU by mating its connector to the radio’s 3-pin DC power cable connector. Visually align the key and firmly push and turn the outer locking ring clockwise until it stops. A click will be sensed to confirm proper mating.

Do not confuse the radio’s DC Power Cable which has a 6 or 10-AWG red wire with the control head’s DC Power Cable which has a 12-AWG red wire. A radio requires more DC operating current than the control head, and therefore, larger-gauge power wires (of 6 or

10-AWG). For a radio, the DC Power Cable’s part number is CA-012365-001 (has

10-AWG red wire). For the LBPA, the DC Power Cable’s part number is 14002-0167-

01 (has 6-AWG red wire). Control head DC Power Cable installation procedures are

provided in Section 10 of this manual.

2. Connect the other DC Power Cable to the LBPA using the same connection method.

3. Prepare to connect both cables’ black wires to vehicle ground by locating an area of vehicle metal within approximately three (3) feet of the two units. This surface must have a solid and stable connection to vehicle ground (i.e., battery ground).

51

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

The radios must have a solid and stable ground connection to vehicle ground. If there is no well-grounded metal surface within approximately three (3) feet of the radios, a metal grounding strap or a heavy-gauge wire (with proper wire terminals) must be added between the metal surface and a solid and stable vehicle grounding point, preferably near the battery. Some vehicles are equipped with a high-current DC power access point (a vehicle option) that provides high-current power and ground studs, typically in the vehicle’s trunk area. In this case, the ground stud of the power access point can be considered a good vehicle ground, and used as such. Metal surfaces should be stripped of all paint and dirt to expose bare metal before attaching a grounding strap or wire terminal. To make all ground connections, the use of stainless-steel hardware with machine-screw threads, shelf-locking nuts, and washers is recommended.

4. Strip the area of any paint or dirt to expose a bare metal surface, approximately ¾-inch square.

5. Drill a hole in the approximate center of the bare metal surface, and deburr it.

A ⅜-inch non-insulated ring terminal is supplied with each cable to make the ground connection.

Therefore, hole diameter should be appropriate for the utilized grounding screw/bolt size and type used to connect the ring terminals to the bare metal surface. This hardware is not supplied.

6. Cut the two (2) black wires to the required length plus some additional length for service loops in each wire, then strip insulation back approximately ¼-inch.

7. Crimp a ⅜-inch non-insulated ring terminal (supplied with the cable) to the end of each black wire.

8. Attach the two (2) ring terminals with black wires to the bare metal surface using stainless-steel selflocking hardware (i.e., machine screws with washers and locking nuts) or other appropriate hardware to ensure a reliable terminal-to-metal contact. Tighten securely.

9. Apply an approved paint or rust-inhibitor over the remaining exposed bare metal surface and around the ring terminal. Do not use an acid-based sealant.

9.2.1.2 Red Wires, Main Fuse Holder Connections (Radios’ Main Power Wires) and

CAN Cable

In a typical vehicle installation, the majority of the CAN cable between the remote-mount MRU radio and the control head can be routed through the vehicle along with the two red wires of the radios’ DC power cables. This is a time-saving measure. Also, any necessary option/accessory cables from the back of the radio can also be routed with these wires and cable within the vehicle’s interior (i.e., up to but not through the vehicle’s firewall).

The following installation procedure is recommended:

1. From the installation kit, get the CAN cable, part number CA-009562-030.

2. Remove interior panels, door kick panels, etc., as necessary to route the two red wires and the CAN cable from the area of the remote-mount MRU radio (typically near the rear of the vehicle) to an area near the vehicle’s firewall.

52

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

3. Route the red wire and the CAN cable through existing channels in the vehicle body to an area near the vehicle’s firewall. Leave service loops at the rear of the radio. CAN cable installation is

completed later using the control head installation procedure (Section 10.5).

4. Continue installation of two (2) DC Power Cables by routing their 20-foot red wires to the location of the vehicle’s battery (or its main DC bus bar or stud). Route the wires through channels in the vehicle to the location of the battery. Protect the wires from possible chafing where necessary. Tie and stow it as necessary.

Plan the routing of the two red wires carefully, using an existing access hole in the vehicle’s firewall if possible. Alternately, drill a new hole approximately 3/8-inch in diameter and install a small rubber grommet to protect the wires from chafing on the hole’s sharp metal edge. To prevent fumes from entering the passenger compartment, this

hole/grommet/wire combination must also be sealed with a silicon-based sealer before

completing the installation.

NOTE

Do not install any wiring or fuse holder over or in the near vicinity of the vehicle’s engine.

Excessive engine heat can cause permanent damage to these components and can lead to intermittent electrical connection to the battery.

The white wire of both units’ DC Power Cables requires no electrical connection. Rather than be cut from the two cables, it is recommended that these wires be routed up to the vehicle’s fuse box, coiled, labeled, and stowed for possible future use. The white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable is the radio installation’s ignition sense input for on/off power control of both the control head and radio. Radio on/off power control is accomplished by the control head. The control head “wakes-up” the MRU radio via data activity on the CAN link.

5. Get the two (2) inline fuse holders included with the DC Power Cables.

6. Observe and abide by the following

WARNING!

Before making connections to the battery’s positive post, carefully disconnect the battery’s negative (ground) cable(s). This will prevent tools or other metallic objects which come in contact with the battery’s positive terminal from shorting to vehicle ground, causing sparks or even a fire or an explosion!

When disconnecting the negative cable(s), cover/insulate the positive post(s) so a tool cannot short between the posts. Some vehicles, such as those with diesel engines have more than one battery; in this case, disconnect the negative cables at all batteries.

Radio and control head fuses should not be installed until all wiring is complete. This will prevent the radio from powering up prematurely and/or causing an in-rush of current that could lead to shorting of the battery, sparks, or even fire.

7. Cut the red wires to the required lengths for connection to the battery’s positive (+) battery terminal

(or the main DC bus bar or stud).

53

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

8. Prepare to splice the two (2) inline fuse holders into the red wires by cutting the red wires again, at approximately three (3) to six (6) inches from each end.

9. Strip all wire ends back approximately ⅜-inch each.

10. For the HFB-type waterproof fuse holder used with the MRU, place a fuse holder shell on each wire so each large end of the shell is towards the wire end, then add a fuse holder terminal onto the stripped portion of the wire end.

11. For the HEB-type water-resistant fuse holder used with the LBPA, four (4) short pieces of heat shrink tubing are included with the fuse holder for insulating crimped fuse holder terminals.

Place a piece of this tubing onto each 6-AWG red wire before crimping the wire end to the fuse holder terminal. Two pieces of tubing at each crimped terminal may be used, if necessary. Next, observe line/load labeling on the fuse holder and place the correct side of the holder (with terminal) onto a stripped wire end.

12. Securely crimp each fuse holder terminal to the wire end.

13. For the HEB-type water-resistant fuse holder used with the LBPA, continue by shrinking the heat shrink tubing(s) over each crimped terminal. No metal of a crimped terminal should be exposed after completing each fuse holder-to-red wire connection.

14. Label each fuse holder and red wire appropriately (e.g., “MRU: 15-AMP FUSE” and “LBPA:

30-AMP FUSE”).

Do NOT install fuses into the fuse holders at this time.

15. Crimp an appropriate electrical terminal to each short red wire. A ⅜-inch ring terminal is included with each cable for this purpose, but another terminal type (not supplied) may be used if required.

16. Connect both ring terminals directly to the battery’s positive post, or if present, to a stud on the battery’s main/non-switched power distribution terminal block.

54

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

10. CONTROL HEAD INSTALLATION

The remote-mount Unity XG-100M mobile radio must be connected to a control head to provide the operator-to-radio interface. Two (2) different control heads are available — the CH-100 control head and

the CH-721 System model control head. See Figure 10-1 through Figure 10-4 respectively. A control

head is interfaced to the radio via a CAN cable. Each control head is powered and fused by an individual

DC power cable (i.e., the control head is powered separately from the radio).

10.1 SELECTING THE MOUNTING LOCATION

When selecting a location for the control head, first observe the safety and operator-convenience related

information presented in Section 6.1 on page 29. Always consider and include clearance for the

microphone’s connector that must mate to the mic connector on the front panel of the head, and clearance for the connectors/cables that must mate to the connectors on the rear panel of the head. The control head can be mounted under or on top of a mounting surface (typically the vehicle’s dash) as space permits using the standard U-shaped mounting bracket.

The size and weight of the control head necessitate less stringent mounting requirements than the radio.

However, like the radio, the control head must be mounted to a mechanically-rigid surface. The control head must not vibrate when the vehicle is in motion and it must remain stable during normal operations by an operator (i.e., button presses, knob rotation, excessive tugs on the mic cord, etc.). If the control head is mounted to a plastic dash panel, either fender washers or a field-fabricated metal backing plate should be used to mount the head’s bracket to the plastic dash panel.

55

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

10.2 GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE CH-100 CONTROL HEAD

The CH-100 control head features a 4.3-inch touchscreen high-contrast sunlight-readable LCD color display, providing an easy-to-use menu-driven operator interface. This head also features a Bluetooth

® wireless interface for connection of optional equipment and to support radio and control head programming via a wireless connection. The front panel of the CH-100 head also features an easy-to-use on/off/volume control and group/channel selection controls, an emergency button, a home button, a USB programming port, a transmit/receive busy indicator, and a microphone connector.

10.4 CONTROL HEAD MECHANICAL INSTALLATION

Refer to Section 10.5 for CAN link installation information.

NOTE

Prior to installing the control head, verify it has the proper software version installed and verify it has been properly configured for customer use. Consult the radio system administration personnel as necessary.

NOTE: If the Bracket Kit includes lock washers, do not use them. Only a flat washer should be used with each cap screw. The cap screws have nylon thread-locking patches on their threads.

Figure 10-7: Standard U-Shaped Control Head Mounting Bracket for CH-721 Control Head

Use the following procedure to install the standard U-shaped mounting bracket.

1. Obtain the mounting bracket from the respective installation kit.

For the CH-100 control head, this is part no. 12099-1500-01 shown in Table 5-3.

For the CH-721 control head, this is part no. KT-008608 shown in Table 5-4.

2. Using the mounting bracket as a template, mark and drill mounting holes into the mounting surface as required.

The round and elliptical holes in the bracket’s vehicle mounting surface are symmetrical, so forwards/backwards positioning is not important during this step. However, positioning is important in the next step.

Before drilling holes and/or installing mounting screws, verify these operations will not damage or interfere with any existing vehicle component (fuel tank, fuel line, transmission housing, existing vehicle wiring, etc.). Always check to see how far the mounting screws will extend below the mounting surface prior to installation. Always deburr drilled holes before installing screws.

3. Postion the bracket at the mounting surface so the two round holes in its two side “ears” are nearest to the normal location of the operator (typically towards the rear of the vehicle) and the two slotted holes are furthest from the normal location of the operator (typically towards the front of the vehicle).

60

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

4. Install and tighten the mounting screws (not included).

Screws for mounting the bracket to the mounting vehicle’s surface are not included, as all installations differ. Self-threading screws are recommended. Use of self-drilling screws may cause damage to some mounting surfaces, such as a plastic dash panel.

5. Verify the bracket is held firmly to the mounting surface.

Firm mounting prevents unreasonable vibration, which could damage the control head and/or cause its cable connections to loosen.

6. Slide the control head into the bracket, placing the two pegs protruding from its left and right sides into the respective round holes in the bracket’s two side “ears.”

7. In each “ear” of the mounting bracket, start a socket-head cap (Allen) head screw with a flat washer by inserting the screw through the slotted hole in the bracket and then into the threaded hole in the side of the control head.

This hardware is included with the Mounting Bracket Kit. Turn each screw clockwise to tighten it.

Recommended torque is 8.7 inch-pounds (10 kg/cm).

As noted in Figure 10-7, do not use lock washers with the U-shaped bracket, even if they

are included in the kit. Each cap screw has a nylon thread-locking patch imbedded in its threads, so no lock washer is required. Also, do not use any additional thread locking compound with the cap screws.

8. Position the control head for the operator’s best viewing angle.

It may be necessary to turn it on the pegs to a good viewing position

9. Tighten both screws using a ⅛-inch hex key (Allen) wrench until the control head is held firmly in place. Do not over-tighten.

Each cap screw should not be installed/re-used more than eight (8) times, because thread locking strength may suffer after this number of re-installations. Replace the cap screws with new cap screws if their locking strength is in question and/or after exceeding eight (8) installations. Hardware Kit 14002-0172-01 is available for this purpose. It includes two

#8-32 self-locking socket-head cap screws and two #8 flat washers.

10.5 CONTROL HEAD-TO-RADIO CAN CABLE CONNECTIONS

10.5.1 General Information

A remote-mount radio installation requires a CAN cable between every two “CAN devices” and CAN terminators on each end of the CAN link. The mobile radio (XG-100M) is considered a CAN device, and

each control head in the installation is also considered a CAN device. Figure 10-8 illustrates CAN cable

and CAN terminator connections for a single control head installation. Because CAN devices do not have internal terminators, the CAN link must be terminated at both ends via external CAN terminators, as depicted in the following figures.

NOTE #2: The XG-100M mobile radio may be located in the middle of the CAN link.

For a 2-head installation, two CAN cables would connect directly to the two CAN port connectors on the rear of the radio, and each control head would require a CAN terminator. When the radio is in the middle of the CAN link, no CAN terminator is required at the radio. The radio can support up to six (6) control heads.

NOTE #3: Right-Angle CAN Terminator MACDOS0010 also is available. This CAN terminator can be used if the physical clearance at the back of the head is insufficient for CAN Terminator CD-014027-001.

10.5.2 Make CAN Link Terminations and Cable Connection

Follow this procedure:

1. Get the two (2) CAN terminators, part number CD-014027-001, from the installation kit.

2. Mate one terminator to either one of the two smaller 3-pin CAN port connectors on the rear panel of the control head.

NOTE

When mating any CAN connection (terminators and cables) to a rear panel connector, visually align the ¾-moon-shaped keys of the connectors, and then gently push and turn the outer locking ring of the plug (male) connector clockwise until it stops. A mild click will be sensed to confirm proper mating. Without visual alignment as a guide, it is possible with excessive force to mate the CAN connectors improperly. Damage to the connector(s) may result. Therefore, visual alignment is recommended when mating CAN connectors.

3. Continue CAN cable installation by routing it to the area near the rear of the control head.

The cable should have been partially installed using the procedure in Section 9.2.1.2, when the CAN

cable was partially installed along with the red wire of the radio’s DC Power Cable.

NOTE

If the mobile radio installation must be interfaced to a Mobile Data Terminal and/or other equipment, simultaneous routing of the related interface cables along with the CAN cable will be time-saving. For GPS equipment cable part numbers and cable installation

procedures, refer to Section 13.5.

4. Mate one end of the CAN cable to the other CAN port connector on the rear panel of the control head.

5. If not already mated, mate the other end of the CAN cable to one of the two CAN port connectors on the rear panel of the radio.

6. Mate the second CAN terminator to the other CAN port connector on the rear panel of the radio.

7. Any necessary option/accessory cables from the back of the radio can also be routed with this wire and cable within the vehicle’s interior (i.e., up to but not through the vehicle’s firewall).

8. Loop, tie, and stow the cable(s) as necessary, leaving a service loop at the back of the radio and at the back of the control head. Protect the entire length of the cable(s) and wire(s) from possible chafing.

10.6 CONTROL HEAD POWER CABLE INSTALLATION

Plan the route of the control head’s DC Power Cable carefully. Do not route the cable where it will be damaged by heat sources or by casual contact, and protect it from wire chafe per standard installation methods. The following procedures are recommended:

63

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

10.6.1 Install DC Power Cable and Make Power and Ground Connections

1. Get the control head’s DC Power Cable from the its installation kit. This is part no. CA-012616-001

in Table 5-3 (CH-100) or Table 5-4 (CH-721).

2. Connect this cable to the large 3-pin connector at the rear of the head. Visually align the key and gently push and turn the outer locking ring clockwise until it stops. A click will be sensed to confirm proper mating.

3. At the back of the control head, locate a nearby section of vehicle chassis ground and strip this area of any paint or dirt to expose a bare metal surface.

4. Cut the black wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable to the required length, plus a service loop of at least six (6) inches, then strip it and crimp a ⅜-inch ring terminal to it. Two ring terminals of this type are included with the cable.

5. Drill a hole, as necessary, and attach this ring terminal to chassis ground. Use stainless-steel selflocking hardware (i.e., machine screws with washers and locking nuts) or other appropriate hardware to ensure reliable terminal-to-metal contact. Tighten securely.

6. At the back of the control head, tie and stow the cable as necessary.

7. For the positive 12-volt DC main power source connection, route the cable’s red wire to the location of an unswitched 12-volt DC power source, typically near the vehicle’s battery.

Remove interior panels, door kick panels, etc. as needed. Protect the wire from possible chafing as necessary. This is the control head’s main DC power source.

8. Obtain one of the yellow waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holders included with the control head’s DC

Power Cable.

9. Cut excess length from the red wire and splice the fuse holder into it, near the location of the unswitched 12-volt DC power source connection point.

If necessary, a small amount of cable soap may be used to help slip the wire through the small end of the fuse holder’s insulator.

10. Using an appropriate electrical terminal, connect the red wire to the unswitched DC power source.

A ⅜-inch ring terminal is included with the cable for this purpose, but another terminal type (not supplied) may be used if required.

11. Obtain the 5-amp AGC-type fuse included with the cable, and install it into the fuse holder.

The fuse for the control head’s red wire is rated at 5 amperes. The 3-amp fuse included with the cable must not be used for fusing the control head’s main DC power. It fuses the head’s white wire.

Do not share the control head’s fuse with any other device. Doing so can cause excess current to flow through the fuse, causing it to blow unnecessarily.

NOTE

64

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

10.6.2 Connect DC Power Cable’s White Wire

A review of the information presented in Section 9.1 (page 50) may be beneficial at this time. As required

per the chosen power-up configuration, connect the white wire by following one of the three procedures presented in the respective sub-section that follows.

10.6.2.1 Control Head and Radio Turn on with Vehicle’s Ignition Switch/Key

With this wiring configuration, the control head and radio automatically turn on and off with the vehicle’s ignition switch/key. The white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable is sometimes referred to as the

“white ignition switch wire” or the “ignition sense input wire.” In this configuration, the white wire connects to a switched power source, typically identified as “Accessory” power, that switches on and off with the vehicle’s ignition switch/key. When using this configuration, the control head’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

NOTE

The white ignition sense wire must be connected to a fused power source that switches from approximately zero volts to approximately +13.6 volts when the vehicle’s ignition switch/key is turned from the OFF position to the ACCESSORY and RUN positions. Use of a switched power source that is subject to voltage changes as a result of other actions, such as opening a vehicle door, may result in undesirable radio power cycles.

1. Locate the vehicle’s switched ignition or “Accessory” power connection point that will be used for the switched ignition 12-volt DC power source.

This point is typically located at or near the vehicle’s fuse panel. It may be necessary to consult the vehicle manufacturer’s wiring diagram.

2. Route the white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable from the back of the head to the area near this connection point. Protect the wire from possible chafing as necessary.

3. Obtain one of the yellow waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holders included with the control head’s DC

Power Cable.

4. Cut excess length from the white wire and splice the fuse holder into it, near the location of the connection point.

5. Using an appropriate electrical terminal, connect the white wire to the switched power connection point. An open-barrel spade terminal is included with the cable for this purpose, but another type of terminal (not supplied) may be used as required.

6. Obtain the 3-amp AGC-type fuse included with the cable, and install it into the fuse holder.

7. Tie and stow all wiring as necessary so it remains out of the way of casual contact and wire chafe is avoided.

65

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

10.6.2.2 Control Head and Radio Turn On with a Manual Switch

With this wiring configuration, the control head and radio are manually turned on and off via an on/off switch mounted separately from the control head and radio, not through the vehicle’s ignition switch/key.

This configuration is used when, for example, the radio must remain on even when the ignition key must be removed from the vehicle and a separate on/off switch is acceptable and/or required. In this configuration, the white wire connects to a fused switched power source such as that provided by a toggle switch mounted on the vehicle’s dash panel. When using this configuration, the on/off/volume control must be left in the on position. Otherwise, the radio will remain off when the switch is on.

1. Route the white wire of the control head’s DC Power Cable from the back of the head to an area near the location of the panel-mounted on/off switch. Protect the wire from possible chafing as necessary.

2. Cut a short section (6 to 8 inches) off the end of the white wire and strip the ends.

3. Obtain one of the yellow waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holders included with the control head’s DC

Power Cable, and crimp one half of it to one end of the short section of wire.

4. Using an appropriate electrical terminal, connect this short white wire to unswitched 12-volt DC power source at or near the vehicle’s fuse box.

5. Cut another section of white wire from the cable. This wire must be long enough to reach from this fuse holder to the location of the panel-mounted on/off switch.

6. Strip one end of this wire and crimp the other half of the waterproof fuse holder to this wire end.

7. Strip the other end of this wire and, using an appropriate electrical terminal, connect it to the common terminal of the switch.

8. Connect the white wire of the power cable to the load (switched) side of the switch.

9. If not already, mount the switch to the vehicle’s dash panel, or other customer-selected location.

10. Obtain the 3-amp AGC-type fuse included with the cable, and install it into the fuse holder.

11. Tie and stow these wires as necessary so they remain out of the way of casual contact and wire chafe is avoided.

12. Label this power switch accordingly. For example: “ RADIO ON/OFF.”

10.6.2.3 Control Head and Radio Are “Hot Wired”

In the “hot-wired” configuration, the control head and radio are turned on and off only by the control head’s on/off/volume control located on the front panel of the control head. In this configuration, the control head’s white wire must be connected to unswitched and fused 12-volt vehicle power. Follow the

procedure presented in Section 10.6.2.1, except connect the white wire to unswitched battery power

instead of switched (“Accessory”) power. Be sure to fuse this connection with the provided in-line fuse holder and 3-amp AGC fuse.

66

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

11. SPEAKER INSTALLATION

Select a location for the speaker that will allow for proper listening range with a moderate volume setting.

Total speaker cable length (of both cables) is approximately five (5) feet. Therefore, to include service loops in the cables, the speaker must be mounted within approximately 4.5 feet of the control head.

1. Install the speaker LS102824V10 in Table 5-3 (CH-100) or Table 5-4 (CH-721) using the hardware

and mounting bracket supplied with it.

Also refer to the instructions included in the speaker for additional mechanical installation information.

2. Route the speaker’s cable to the rear of the control head.

3. Mate the Speaker Cable MAMROS0034-NN006 [Table 5-3 (CH-100) or Table 5-4 (CH-721)] to the

2-pin “AUDIO” connector at the rear of the control head by visually aligning the ¾-moon-shaped keys of the connectors. Push and turn the outer locking ring of the cable connector clockwise until it stops. A mild click will be sensed to confirm proper mating.

4. Connect the speaker’s 2-pin plastic connector to the respective mating connector on the Speaker’s cable.

5. Route the cables out of the way of casual contact and tie and stow as necessary.

12. MICROPHONE ATTACHMENT

There are several versions of microphones available for use with the CH-100 and CH-721 control heads.

Each microphone has a 17-pin flush-mount type connector that mates with the microphone (“mic”) connector on the front panel of the control head. The mic’s connector includes a captive thumbscrew that secures it to the mic connector on the front panel of the control head. A microphone clip is included with each microphone. The radio can be configured to provide a monitor function when the microphone is cradled in the clip. Connect the mic to the control head and install the clip as follows:

1. Grasp the mic’s connector with a thumb and index finger on the sides of the connector just adjacent to the thumbscrew.

2. Position connector just in front of the control head’s mic connector so its male pins can engage straight into the female (socket) pins of the control head’s mic connector. The thumbscrew must be oriented directly below the hanging mic cable.

3. Mate the two connectors by pressing them fully together. Do not apply any force to the thumbscrew when mating the connectors.

4. Tighten the thumbscrew finger-tight. Do not use a screwdriver to tighten it.

5. Using the microphone clip as a template, drill mounting holes in the surface of the selected location.

6. Select a mounting surface location that has clearance for the mic when it is clipped to the clip, and then attach the microphone clip to the surface. Use self-locking hardware (i.e., machine screws with washers and locking nuts), self-drilling screws, or other appropriate hardware as necessary. Tighten securely. Microphones used with the CH-100 and CH-721 control heads have integrated hookswitches. Therefore, the microphone clip does not need to be grounded.

7. Clip the microphone to the clip.

13.5 OPTION CABLE 14002-0174-01

Option Cable 14002-0174-01 connects to the 44-pin I/O connector on the rear of the radio. It breaks out into several smaller standardized connectors, allowing straightforward access to external I/O interfaces provided by the radio. The cable also shortens radio removal and re-installation time when required. The

cable is shown in Figure 13-5 below. The cable’s 44-pin D-subminiature connector P1 mates with the 44-

pin I/O connector on the rear of the radio.

Observe caution before connecting any external device to the radio via its 44-pin I/O connector. If an external device has its own DC power source/cable (i.e., if it is powered separately from the radio), both the radio and the external device must be properly grounded to the vehicle before connecting the two units together and before making a positive (+) DC power connection to either unit. Otherwise, equipment damage may occur.

14. GPS NMEA-FORMATTED SERIAL DATA CONNECTION

To obtain GPS NMEA-formatted serial data from the MRU, use the following procedure to complete the serial data connections:

1. Connect the DB-9 female connector labeled “GPS” of Interface Cable to the computer’s serial port

DB-9 male connector—either directly or extended via a serial cable. Serial Programming Cable

CA-013671-020 (20 feet) can be used to extend the length; see Section 13.1 for additional

information.

2. Tighten the screws firmly, and then route the cabling as required.

If the computer is not equipped with a DB-9 serial port connector, a suitable adapter is required, such as USB-to-RS-232 Adapter Cable, Harris part number CN24741-0001.

3. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on processing the NMEA-formatted GPS data from the radio.

Industry software to process GPS information through this interface is not supported by

Harris.

NOTE

15. MOBILE DATA CONNECTION

If the radio installation must support mobile data communications of a computer running Mobile Data

Terminal (MDT) or similar software, use the following procedure to connect the computer to the radio:

1. Obtain the Serial Programming cable CA-013671-020 (or equivalent). This is a 20-foot-long standard

serial data cable. It is shown in Figure 13-1 on page 68.

2. Connect this cable’s male DB-9 connector to the female DB-9 connector on the rear of the MRU radio (XG-100M). Tighten the two (2) connector jackscrews.

3. Route the cable through the vehicle’s interior wire/cable channeling to the computer.

Remove interior panels, door kick panels, etc., as necessary. Protect the cable from possible chafing and tie-and-stow it as necessary.

4. Connect the cable’s female DB-9 connector to the computer.

If the computer is not equipped with a DB-9 serial port connector, a suitable adapter is required, such as USB-to-RS-232 Adapter Cable, Harris part number CN24741-0001.

Mobile data should not be obtained from the CH-721 control head.

NOTE

NOTE

Before data communications can occur on a P25 system, the respective data option must be enabled. Contact the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) for additional information. TAC

contact information is included on page 21.

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

16. INITIAL POWER-UP TEST

1. At the main inline fuse holders located near the vehicle battery (or DC power access point); install the

15-amp fuse into the MRU main power fuse holder.

The proper fuse is included with the MRU’s DC Power Cable (installed per Section 9.2.1.2).

2. Install a 30-amp AGC fuse into the fuse holder for LBPA main power.

The fuse is included with the LBPA’s DC Power Cable (installed per Section 9.2.1.2).

3. Install a 5-amp AGC fuse into the fuse holder for the control head’s main power (red wire), if not previously installed. The fuse is included with the Control Unit’s DC Power Cable.

4. Install a 3-amp AGC fuse into the control head’s ignition sense line (white wire), if used. The fuse is included with the with the Control Unit’s DC Power Cable.

5. Tie and stow all fuse holders and wiring to prevent excess vibration/movement.

6. Carefully reconnect the vehicle’s battery ground cable.

7. Temporarily connect the multi-band mobile antenna cable from the vehicle-mounted antenna to the

MRU female TNC RF connector “MB ANT.”

This is a temporary connection until test procedures in Section 17 are complete.

8. Temporarily connect the VHF mobile antenna cable from the vehicle-mounted antenna to the MRU female BNC RF connector “LB ANT.”

This is a temporary connection until test procedures in Section 17 are complete.

9. If the MRU is equipped with the GPS receiver option, permanently connect the antenna cable from the GPS antenna (or mobile/GPS combo antenna) to the female SMA connector on the rear panel of the radio.

The male SMA connector on most GPS antenna cables has a 5/16-inch hex collar, so the use of a wrench of this same size is normally required for tightening. However, some may have collars with only knurled surfaces, so a standard wrench or torque wrench cannot be used. In either case, do not over tighten the connector and do not twist the cable when tightening.

10. If the installation is wired so the vehicle’s ignition key/switch turns the radio on and off, turn the switch to the Accessory or Run position.

11. Rotate the control head on/off/volume control clockwise out of the detent position to apply power to the radio.

12. Verify the control head has powered-up by observing its display. If the display is not lit, refer to

Section 9.1 as necessary.

As long as the software configuration parameters have been loaded, successful installation is almost immediately realized:

 After a short boot-up sequence, the control head displays login information and/or a talk group.

 If no errors are displayed, the installation is most-likely properly wired.

76

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

 If an error is displayed, recheck all cable connections, verify all fuses are properly installed, and verify battery power is getting to the radios’ main power fuses. If problems persist, contact the

Technical Assistance Center (see page 21).

Consult the Operator’s Manual for operational information. Refer to Section 3.5 on page 18 as

necessary.

13. Perform the necessary performance tests as described in Section 17.

77

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

17. PERFORMANCE TESTS

This section includes procedures to verify the performance of the installation’s antennas.

Procedures to Verify Multiband Antenna System:

Transmitting into a 50-Ohm RF Load/Terminator (“Dummy Load”) - Section 17.2 - This test verifies

the radio’s RF output power is satisfactory.

Transmitting into Mobile Antenna - Section 17.3 - This test verifies the radio’s multiband antenna

system is satisfactory.

Procedures to Verify Low Band Antenna System:

Transmitting into a 50-Ohm RF Load/Terminator (“Dummy Load”) - Section 17.4 - This test verifies

the LBPA’s RF output power is satisfactory.

Transmitting into Mobile Antenna - Section 17.5 - This test verifies the radio’s Low Band antenna

system is satisfactory.

If the vehicle’s engine must remain running, the vehicle location should be well ventilated so exhaust fumes from the engine do not cause harm!

When jump-starting a vehicle equipped with a Unity mobile and Low Band Power

Amplifier remove the radio installation’s four (4) fuses from the fuse holders prior to jumpstarting. This will prevent possible damage to the Unity mobile, Low Band Power

Amplifier, or control head.

The accuracy of test results depends upon a DC power source in the range of 13.6 volts DC

 10%, with a current capacity of greater than 20 amps for the 50-Watt MRU radios, and greater than 25 amps for the 100-Watt VHF amplifier. Make sure the vehicle’s battery is fully charged by running the engine for a few minutes before the test, and keep the engine running during the test procedures.

NOTE

Prior to installation, transmit RF output power levels should be configured appropriately.

The wide range of power levels indicated in the following procedures take into account such things as: customer’s requirements; measurement errors, especially to include uncalibrated equipment; cabling losses; and temperature variations. By no means should the result from

Performance Testing in this section be construed as the exact value of power level outputs from the mobile radio equipment, as values are set and more accurately measured in the factory. The values obtained in these test procedures determine a successful installation only.

9. Set the radio to test a conventional channel.

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

It is recommended that a Conventional RF channel be allocated for this testing. This same channel should be used during the antenna test procedure presented in the next section.

If possible, use a test channel in the approximate center of the respective RF band.

NOTE

10. Insert the 100-watt element into the wattmeter and position the element to measure forward RF output power. Rotate it as necessary.

The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the XG-100M antenna jack and towards the 50-ohm load/terminator for forward power measurements.

11. Set the wattmeter to measure peak RF power.

12. Key the MRU transmitter via the microphone’s PTT button.

Transmit only for as long as needed to take the measurement, then immediately disable the transmission.

NOTE

13. For an 800 MHz band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 22.1 and 55.5 watts (35 watts ±2 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

For a 700 MHz band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 15.1 and 23.9 watts (19 watts ±1 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

For a 50-Watt VHF or UHF band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 39.8 and 63 watts (50 watts ±1 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

As stated in the

NOTE

on page 78, the wide power level range errors may be caused by test

cable loss, etc.

NOTE

14. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the measured value in the appropriate space on

the data collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, verify the power source voltage (i.e., battery voltage) is within the specified range, recheck all connections and measure the RF output power again. If this fails to produce a reading within the range, replace the radio and repeat this procedure. If problems

persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see page 21).

15. Un-key the transmitter by releasing the microphone’s PTT button.

81

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

17.3 MRU TRANSMITTING INTO ITS ANTENNA

1. To verify transmit output power of the MRU, perform the test procedure presented in the previous

section (Section 17.2).

2. Turn off the XG-100M mobile radio.

3. Disconnect the 50-ohm load/terminator from the wattmeter.

4. Connect the cable from the vehicle-mounted MRU antenna (cable labeled “MRU Antenna”) to the

wattmeter’s output connector, as shown in Figure 17-1.

5. Turn on the radio via the control head’s on/off volume control (or externally-mounted switch). The radio powers-up.

When transmitting into an antenna, always observe and follow all RF exposure-related

safety information presented in the Product Safety Manual.

6. Set the XG-100M to test a conventional channel. Recommend using the same channel that was used when performing the previous procedure.

It is recommended that a test conventional channel be allocated for this testing. Otherwise, interference with other radio users in the system may occur. Also, during transmissions,

always observe the RF exposure-related safety information presented in Section 1.2 of

this manual (begins on page 7).

NOTE

7. No change in the position of the wattmeter element should be necessary. The arrow on the face of the element must be pointing away from the MRU and towards the antenna for forward power measurements.

8. Set the wattmeter to measure peak RF power.

9. Key the transmitter via the microphone’s PTT button.

Transmit only for as long as needed to take the measurement, then immediately disable the transmission.

NOTE

10. For an 800 MHz band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 22.1 and 55.5 watts (35 watts ±2 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

For a 700 MHz band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 15.1 and 23.9 watts (19 watts ±1 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

For a 50-Watt VHF and UHF band transmission, compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 39.8 and 63 watts (50 watts ±1 dB). This transmit output power range assumes the Unity mobile is currently configured for high-power transmit.

82

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

As stated in the

NOTE

on page 78, the wide power level range takes into account errors

caused by test cable loss, etc.

NOTE

11. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the value in the appropriate space on the data

collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, verify the MRU power supply voltage (i.e., battery voltage) is within the specified range, recheck all connections, and measure the forward power again.

If this fails to produce a reading within the range, check all cabling and connections, and repeat the testing procedure to this point. In the event the wattmeter reading still falls outside the range, replace the antenna, make sure all connections are seated firmly, and repeat the testing procedure. If problems

persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see page 21).

12. Position the wattmeter’s element to measure reverse (reflected) RF power from the antenna. The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the antenna and towards the MRU to measure reverse power.

13. Key the transmitter via the microphone’s PTT button.

Transmit only for as long as needed to take the measurement, then immediately disable the transmission.

NOTE

14. Compare the wattmeter reading with the RF power output range of 15 watts or less. This limit exists because the multi-band (untuned) antenna has a VSWR of  3:1.

15. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the value in the appropriate space on the data

collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, make sure the antenna is consistent with the specified frequency range of the MRU. Recheck all antenna connections, and measure the reverse power again.

If this fails to produce a reading within the range, replace the antenna and repeat the entire antenna test procedure. Any value exceeding the maximum allowable reflected power value will result in a diminished RF output signal. If problems persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see see

page 21).

16. Un-key the transmitter by releasing the microphone’s PTT button.

17. Disconnect the coaxial cable jumper and wattmeter.

18. Permanently connect the MRU Multi-band antenna cable to the MB ANT (TNC) connector on the rear of the radio.

Improper installation of the RF cables may lead not only to poor radio performance but also to harmful exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.

83

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

19. Use a pair of soft-jaw pliers to gently tighten this connection. Do not over tighten and do not twist the antenna cable.

To prevent RF leakage and ensure peak performance, make sure the RF connectors are tight, but do not over-tighten so connector damage will not occur.

NOTE

20. Make several test calls on the radio system to verify MRU operation. Before making the calls, select another conventional channel(s), as required to verify operation.

84

17.4 LOW BAND PA TRANSMITTING INTO A 50-OHM LOAD/TERMINATOR

17.4.1 For a 100 Watt Output Configuration

1. If it is not already, disconnect the LBPA antenna cable at the rear of the LBPA. Label this cable from the antenna as the “LBPA Antenna” cable. This should be the cable from the lowest (vehicle trunk lid mounted) antenna.

2. Using the Type N male to TNC male coaxial test cable, connect the ANTENNA connector at the rear of the LBPA to the input of the 20 dB RF Attenuator.

3. Connect a Type N male to Type N male to the wattmeter’s input connector. See Figure 17-2.

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

7. Turn on the XG-100M mobile radio, if not already on, via the control head’s on/off volume control

(or externally-mounted switch). Refer to the operator’s manual as necessary.

8. Switch the XG-100M mobile radio to a VHF low band analog channel.

9. Key the transmitter via the microphone’s PTT button.

Transmit only for as long as needed to take the measurement, then immediately disable the transmission.

NOTE

10. Compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 0.9

and 1.2 watts (100 watts ±1 dB).

This transmit output power range assumes the LBPA is currently configured for maximum transmit power. The LBPA may be configured with a lower RF output power (30 watts) per its MRU configuration.

For the LBPA, because a 20 dB RF attenuator used, any measurement from the wattmeter

must be multiplied by 100 to obtain the radio’s actual output power in watts.

NOTE

11. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the measured value in the appropriate space on

the data collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, verify the MRU’s and PBPA’s power source voltage

(i.e., battery voltage) is within the specified range, recheck all connections and measure the RF output power again. If this fails to produce a reading within the range, replace the units and repeat this

procedure. If problems persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see page see page 21).

12. Un-key the transmitter by releasing the microphone’s PTT button.

86

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

17.5 LOW BAND PA TRANSMITTING INTO ITS ANTENNA

1. To verify transmit output power of the LBPA, perform the test procedure presented in the previous

section (Section 17.4).

2. Disconnect the 50-ohm load/terminator from the wattmeter.

3. Connect the cable from the vehicle-mounted LBPA antenna (cable labeled “LBPA Antenna”) to the

wattmeter’s output connector. See Figure 17-2.

4. Insert a 5-watt element into the wattmeter and position the element to measure forward RF output power. Rotate it as necessary. The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the LBPA and towards the antenna for forward power measurements.

5. Insert the 20 dB attenuator between the LBPA and the Wattmeter.

6. Set the wattmeter to measure peak RF power.

7. Turn on the XG-100M mobile radio, if not already on, via the control head’s on/off volume control

(or externally-mounted switch).

When the LBPA begins transmitting, an antenna must be connected and personnel should be at least the minimum safe distance from the antenna. Minimum safe

distances from the LBPA antenna are listed in Table 1-1 on page 9.

8. Compare the wattmeter’s reading with the target RF output power range of between 0.9

and 1.2 watts (100 watts ±1 dB).

This transmit output power range assumes the LBPA is currently configured for maximum transmit power. The LBPA may be configured with a lower RF output power per the MRU configuration.

For the LBPA, because a 20 dB RF attenuator used, any measurement from the wattmeter

must be multiplied by 100 to obtain the radio’s actual output power in watts.

NOTE

9. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the value in the appropriate space on the data

collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, first verify the LBPA antenna’s driven element is properly trimmed. Before making any antenna adjustments, be sure to disable the LBPA to stop transmitting.

Verify LBPA power source voltage (i.e., battery voltage) is within the specified range, recheck all connections, and measure the forward power again. If this fails to produce a reading within the range, check all cabling and connections, and repeat the testing procedure to this point. In the event the wattmeter reading still falls outside the range, replace the antenna, make sure all connections are seated firmly, and repeat the testing procedure. If problems persist, contact the Technical Assistance

Center (see page see page 21).

10. Turn off the MRU. The LBPA should stop transmitting immediately, as indicated by the wattmeter.

87

14221-1200-4010, Rev. B

11. Position the wattmeter’s 5-watt element to measure reverse (reflected) RF power from the antenna.

The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the antenna and towards the LBPA to measure reverse power.

12. Turn on the MRU.

13. The wattmeter reading should be less than ½ watt.

14. If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the value in the appropriate space on the data

collection form near the end of this manual (page 90).

If the wattmeter reading is outside the range, first verify the LBPA antenna’s driven element is properly trimmed. Before making any antenna adjustments, be sure to disable the LBPA to stop transmitting. Verify LBPA power supply voltage (i.e., battery voltage) is within the specified range, recheck all connections, and measure the forward power again. If this fails to produce a reading within the range, check all cabling and connections, and repeat the testing procedure to this point. In the event the wattmeter reading still falls outside the range, replace the antenna, make sure all connections are seated firmly, and repeat the testing procedure. If problems persist, contact the

Technical Assistance Center (see page see page 21).

15. Turn off the MRU. The LBPA should stop transmitting immediately, as indicated by the wattmeter.

16. Disconnect the coaxial cable jumper and wattmeter.

17. Permanently connect the LBPA antenna cable to the ANTENNA (TNC) connector on the rear of the

LBPA.

Improper installation of the RF cables may lead not only to poor radio performance but also to harmful exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.

18. Use a pair of soft-jaw pliers to gently tighten this connection. Do not over tighten and do not twist the antenna cable.

To prevent RF leakage and ensure peak performance, make sure the RF connectors are tight, but do not over-tighten so connector damage will not occur.

NOTE

19. Make several test calls on the radio system to verify MRU/LBPA operation. Before making the calls, select another conventional channel(s), as required to verify operation.

18. COMPLETE THE INSTALLATION

Double-check the following items before considering the installation completed:

 Verify all newly installed mechanical hardware is mounted securely and all respective mounting hardware is tight.

Verify all electrical interconnections are connected properly and the associated connector attachment hardware is tight. Pay special attention to all RF antenna cables!

 Verify all related fuses are correctly installed, properly rated, and correctly labeled.

 Verify all electrical cables and wiring are tied, stowed, and protected so they are out of the way of casual contact, away from sources of extreme heat, and wire chafing cannot occur. Pay special attention to all RF antenna cables!

 To prevent fumes from entering the vehicle’s passenger compartment, seal the hole/grommet/wire combination at the firewall with a silicon-based sealer.

 Verify all vehicle components are properly reinstalled such as kick panels, headliners, and seats.

 If the installation includes a separately-mounted on/off power switch for manually turning the mobile radio (and possibly others systems) on and off, verify it is labelled accordingly. For example: “

Radio

1 REGULATORY AND SAFETY INFORMATION

1.1 SAFETY SYMBOL CONVENTIONS

The following conventions are used in this manual to alert the user to general safety precautions that must be observed during all phases of operation, installation, service, and repair of this product. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of the product. Harris assumes no liability for the customer's failure to comply with these standards.

NOTE

The WARNING symbol calls attention to a procedure, practice, or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in personal injury. Do not proceed beyond a WARNING symbol until the conditions identified are fully understood or met.

The CAUTION symbol calls attention to an operating procedure, practice, or the like, which, if not performed correctly or adhered to, could result in damage to the equipment or severely degrade equipment performance.

The NOTE symbol calls attention to supplemental information, which may improve system performance or clarify a process or procedure.

1.2 RF ENERGY EXPOSURE AWARENESS AND CONTROL

INFORMATION FOR FCC OCCUPATIONAL USE REQUIREMENTS

Before using the two-way mobile radio, review the following important RF energy awareness and control information and operational instructions. Comply with this information and instructions in order to ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines.

This radio is intended for use in occupational/controlled conditions, where users have full knowledge of their exposure and can exercise control over their exposure to remain below RF exposure limits. This radio is NOT authorized for general population, consumer, or any other use.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Harris could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

This two-way radio uses electromagnetic energy in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide communications between two or more users over a distance. It uses RF energy or radio waves to send and receive calls. RF energy is one form of electromagnetic energy. Other forms include, but are not limited to, electric power, sunlight, and x-rays. RF energy, however, should not be confused with these other forms of electromagnetic energy, which, when used improperly, can cause biological damage. Very high levels of x-rays, for example, can damage tissues and genetic material.

5

14221-1200-4000, Rev. E

Experts in science, engineering, medicine, health, and industry work with organizations to develop standards for exposure to RF energy. These standards provide recommended levels of RF exposure for both workers and the general public. These recommended RF exposure levels include substantial margins of protection. All two-way radios marketed in North America are designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they meet government-established RF exposure levels. In addition, manufacturers also recommend specific operating instructions to users of two-way radios. These instructions are important because they inform users about RF energy exposure and provide simple procedures on how to control it. Refer to the following websites for more information on what RF energy exposure is and how to control exposure to assure compliance with established RF exposure limits: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html

http://www.osha.gov./SLTC/radiofrequencyradiation/index.html

1.2.1 Federal Communications Commission Regulations

Before it was marketed in the United States, the Unity XG-100M two-way mobile radio was tested to ensure compliance with FCC RF energy exposure limits for two-way mobile radios. When two-way radios are used as a consequence of employment, the FCC requires users to be fully aware of and able to control their exposure to meet occupational requirements. Exposure awareness can be facilitated by the use of a label directing users to specific user awareness information. The radio has an RF exposure product label. Also, this Product Safety Manual and the applicable Operator’s Manual include information and operating instructions required to control RF exposure and to satisfy compliance requirements.

1.3 COMPLIANCE WITH RF EXPOSURE STANDARDS

The Unity XG-100M two-way mobile radio is designed and tested to comply with a number of national and international standards and guidelines regarding human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy. This radio complies with the IEEE and ICNIRP exposure limits for occupational/controlled RF exposure environment at duty-cycle times of up to 50% (50% transmit, 50% receive), and it is authorized by the

FCC for occupational use. In terms of measuring RF energy for compliance with the FCC exposure guidelines, the radio’s antenna radiates measurable RF energy only while it is transmitting (talking), not when it is receiving (listening), or in a standby mode.

The Unity XG-100M two-way mobile radio complies with the following RF energy exposure standards and guidelines:

United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Code of Federal Regulations; 47 CFR

§ 2 sub-part J.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)

C95.1-2005.

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) C95.1-2005.

IC Standard RSS-102, Issue 4, 2010: Spectrum Management and Telecommunications Radio

Standards Specification. Radiofrequency Exposure Compliance of Radiocommunication Apparatus

(All Frequency Bands).

14221-1200-4000, Rev. E

Table 1-1 for XG-100M and Table 1-2 for XG-100LPA list the recommended

minimum safe lateral distances for a controlled environment and for unaware bystanders in an uncontrolled environment, from transmitting antennas (i.e., monopoles over a ground plane, or dipoles) at rated radio power for mobile radios installed in a vehicle. Transmit only when unaware bystanders are at least the uncontrolled recommended minimum safe lateral distance away from the transmitting antenna.

Based on the highest radiated RF power and the highest antenna gain in antennas to be used with Unity

XG-100M or XG-100M with XG-100LPA, the distances listed are considered as safe distances for controlled and uncontrolled environments with the Unity XG-100M mobile radio transmitting at a maximum 50% duty cycle.

1.3.1 Mobile Mobile Antennas

The antenna(s) for the radio must be installed in accordance with the antenna installation procedures presented in the radio’s Installation Manual. Refer to the

Section 3 on page 19 for the respective

publication number. Installation guidelines presented in the Installation Manuals are limited to metalbody motor vehicles or vehicles with appropriate ground planes.

Use only approved/supplied antenna(s) or an approved replacement antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments can cause the FCC RF exposure limits to be exceeded.

1.3.2 Approved Accessories

The radio has been tested and meets FCC RF guidelines when used with accessories supplied or designated for use with it. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with the FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, and may violate FCC regulations. For a list of approved accessories, refer to the radio’s Installation Manual and/or the Products and Services Catalog.

1.3.3 Contact Information

For additional information on RF exposure and other information, contact Harris using one of the contact

links listed in Section 6 on page 27.

1.5 OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY GUIDELINES AND SAFETY TRAINING

INFORMATION

To ensure bodily exposure to RF electromagnetic energy is within the FCC allowable limits for occupational use. Always adhere to the following basic guidelines:

The push-to-talk button should only be depressed when intending to send a voice message.

The radio should only be used for necessary work-related communications.

The radio should only be used by authorized and trained personnel. It should never be operated by children.

Do not attempt any unauthorized modification to the radio. Changes or modifications to the radio may cause harmful interference and/or cause it to exceed FCC RF exposure limits. Only qualified personnel should service the radio.

Always use only authorized accessories (antennas, control heads, speakers/mics, etc.). Use of unauthorized accessories can cause the FCC RF exposure compliance requirements to be exceeded.

The information listed above provides the user with information needed to make him or her aware of a RF exposure, and what to do to assure that this radio operates within the FCC exposure limits of this radio.

1.6 COMMON HAZARDS

The operator of any mobile radio should be aware of certain hazards common to the operation of vehicular radio transmissions. Possible hazards include but are not limited to:

Explosive Atmospheres — Just as it is dangerous to fuel a vehicle while its engine is running, be sure to turn the radio OFF while fueling the vehicle. If the radio is mounted in the trunk of the vehicle, DO NOT carry containers of fuel in the trunk.

Areas with potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly marked. Turn the radio

OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. It is rare, but not impossible that the radio or its accessories could generate sparks.

Interference To Vehicular Electronic Systems — Electronic fuel injection systems, electronic antiskid braking systems, electronic cruise control systems, etc., are typical of the types of electronic devices that can malfunction due to the lack of protection from radio frequency (RF) energy present when transmitting. If the vehicle contains such equipment, consult the dealer for the make of vehicle and enlist his aid in determining if such electronic circuits perform normally when the radio is transmitting.

10

14221-1200-4000, Rev. E

Electric Blasting Caps — To prevent accidental detonation of electric blasting caps, DO NOT use two-way radios within 1000 feet (305 meters) of blasting operations. Always obey the “Turn Off

Two-Way Radios” (or equivalent) signs posted where electric blasting caps are being used. (OSHA

Standard: 1926.900).

Radio Frequency Energy — To prevent burns or related physical injury from radio frequency energy, do not operate the transmitter when anyone outside of the vehicle is within the minimum safe

distance from the antenna as specified in Table 1-1. Refer to Section 1.2 for additional information.

Vehicles Powered By Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas — Radio installation in vehicles powered by liquefied petroleum gas, where the LP gas container is located in the trunk or other sealed-off space within the interior of the vehicle, must conform to the National Fire Protection Association standard

NFPA 58. This requires:

 The space containing the radio equipment must be isolated by a seal from the space containing the LP gas container and its fittings.

 Outside filling connections must be used for the LP gas container.

 The LP gas container space shall be vented to the outside of the vehicle.

Vehicles Equipped with Airbags — For driver and passenger safety, avoid mounting the radio’s control head (or any other component) above or near airbag deployment areas. In addition to driverside and passenger-side front-impact airbags, some vehicles may also be equipped with side-impact airbags. For occupant safety, verify the location of all airbags within the vehicle before installing the radio equipment.

1.7 SAFE DRIVING RECOMMENDATIONS

The American Automobile Association (AAA) advocates the following key safe driving recommendations:

Read the literature on the safe operation of the radio.

Keep both hands on the steering wheel and the microphone in its hanger whenever the vehicle is in motion.

Place calls only when the vehicle is stopped.

When talking from a moving vehicle is unavoidable, drive in the slower lane. Keep conversations brief.

If a conversation requires taking notes or complex thought, stop the vehicle in a safe place and continue the call.

Whenever using a mobile radio, exercise caution.

1.8 OPERATING RULES AND REGULATIONS

Two-way radio systems must be operated in accordance with the rules and regulations of the local, regional, or national government.

In the United States, the Unity XG-100M mobile radio must be operated in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Operators of two-way radio equipment must be thoroughly familiar with the rules that apply to the particular type of radio operation. Following these rules helps eliminate confusion, assures the most efficient use of the existing radio channels, and results in a smoothly functioning radio network.

When using a two-way radio, remember these rules:

It is a violation of FCC rules to interrupt any distress or emergency message. The radio operates in much the same way as a telephone “party line.” Therefore, always listen to make sure the channel is clear before transmitting. Emergency calls have priority over all other messages. If someone is

11

14221-1200-4000, Rev. E

sending an emergency message – such as reporting a fire or asking for help in an accident, do not transmit unless assistance can be offered.

The use of profane or obscene language is prohibited by Federal law.

It is against the law to send false call letters or false distress or emergency messages. The FCC requires keeping conversations brief and confined to business. Use coded messages whenever possible to save time.

Using the radio to send personal messages (except in an emergency) is a violation of FCC rules. Send only essential messages.

It is against Federal law to repeat or otherwise make known anything overheard on the radio.

Conversations between others sharing the channel must be regarded as confidential.

The FCC requires self-identification at certain specific times by means of call letters. Refer to the rules that apply to the particular type of operation for the proper procedure.

No changes or adjustments shall be made to the equipment except by an authorized or certified electronics technician.

Under U.S. law, operation of an unlicensed radio transmitter within the jurisdiction of the United States may be punishable by a fine of up to $10,000, imprisonment for up to two (2) years, or both.

1.9 OPERATING TIPS

The following conditions tend to reduce the effective range of two-way radios and should be avoided whenever possible:

Operating the radio in areas of low terrain, or while under power lines or bridges.

Obstructions such as mountains and buildings.

In areas where transmission or reception is poor, communication improvement may sometimes be obtained by moving a few yards in another direction, or moving to a higher elevation.

Cette radio bidirectionnelle utilise une énergie électromagnétique dans le spectre des radiofréquences

(RF) pour permettre une communication à distance entre deux utilisateurs ou plus. Elle utilise l’énergie des RF ou les ondes radio pour envoyer et recevoir des appels. L’énergie des RF est une forme d’énergie

électromagnétique. D’autres formes comprennent, entre autres, l’énergie électrique, la lumière du soleil et les rayons X. Toutefois, l’énergie des RF ne doit pas être confondue avec ces autres formes d’énergie

électromagnétique qui, lorsque mal utilisées, peuvent causer des dommages biologiques. Par exemple, des niveaux très élevés de rayons X peuvent endommager les tissus et le matériel génétique.

Des experts en science, en ingénierie, en médecine, en santé et de l’industrie travaillent avec des organismes pour établir des normes pour l’exposition à l’énergie des RF. Ces normes procurent des niveaux recommandés d’exposition aux RF autant aux travailleurs qu’au grand public. Ces niveaux d’exposition aux RF recommandés comprennent d’importantes marges de protection. Toutes les radios bidirectionnelles commercialisées en Amérique du Nord sont conçues, fabriquées et testées pour s’assurer qu’elles satisfont les niveaux d’exposition aux RF établis par le gouvernement. Les fabricants recommandent également des consignes d’utilisation particulières aux utilisateurs de radios bidirectionnelles. Ces instructions sont importantes, car elles informent les utilisateurs sur l’exposition à l’énergie des RF et donnent des procédures simples sur la manière de contrôler cette exposition.

Consultez les sites Web suivants (en anglais) pour de plus amples renseignements sur ce qu’est l’exposition à l’énergie des RF et comment contrôler l’exposition pour assurer la conformité aux limites d’exposition établies : http://www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/rf-faqs.html http://www.osha.gov./SLTC/radiofrequencyradiation/index.html

2.2.2 Règlements de la Federal Communications Commission (« Commission fédérale des communications » aux États-Unis)
