WIRELESS FRONT PARKING SENSOR KIT 514FW
EN
1.0 - HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
Installation and configuration tasks should only be performed by qualified personnel.
Front parking sensors will ensure that a safe distance is maintained to other vehicles.
The parking system is designed as an assist device only, it should not be considered to replace attentiveness while maneuvering at low speeds in and out
of confined spaces nor substitute safe driving practices.
The PDC system comes with 1 acoustic warning loudspeaker (buzzer, master device), 1 resin-filled control unit (slave device), a manual ON/OFF switch with LED indicator and 4
compact waterproof paintable sensors. The proximity sensors are configurable via the master device according to your preferences and bumper type (contact a Gemini authorized
Service Center).
1.1 - ACTIVATION: The buzzer activates automatically when ignition switch is turned ON while the control unit activates only when the engine is started. Once powered, the
control unit carries out a complete operating self-diagnostic test and transmits data to the buzzer. If all sensors are operative, the LED on the ON/OFF switch turns ON and 1 Beep
will confirm activation. If, on the other hand, one of the sensors is faulty, a deep error tone (Bop) will sound followed by the number of Beeps corresponding to the faulty sensor. From
this moment on, communication remains active between the 2 devices to monitor the area in front of the vehicle until ignition is switched OFF.
1.2 - DEACTIVATION: This operation is managed by the loudspeaker based on the system configuration:
1.
Manual deactivation via ON/OFF dash switch (to avoid warning beeps in traffic jams, at traffic lights, queues etc.):
Short press (approx. 0,5 sec.) => sensors remain OFF until the button is pressed again or, if the buzzer is connected to the odometer, they will switch ON
automatically when the vehicle speed goes back under the set speed.
Long press (approx. 3 sec., until you hear a Bop) => sensors remain disabled until ignition is turned OFF and ON again. Sensors can be re-enabled via the
ON/OFF switch.
2.
Maneuvering time period expired: When the “Deactivation delay” feature is configured, the sensors, if no obstacle is detected, will turn OFF after 30 or 60 sec.
according to the selected configuration. If, during this period, an obstacle is detected, the switch OFF delay time will extend to 120 sec. (max.). If configured with code
“51” (see Configuration table, par. 12.0), sensors are only switched OFF manually via the dash switch.
3.
Speed signal (Odometer): Sensors switch OFF when the vehicle speed exceeds the set speed and they automatically switch ON when the vehicle speed falls below
the set speed. Only the LED on the dash switch will light up to confirm reactivation.
1.3 - OBSTACLE DETECTION
Detection of obstacles is signalled by the buzzer with an audible proximity warning when driving forward: the faster the beeping the closer the obstacle. The warning tone becomes
continuous when the distance between the obstacle and the vehicle reaches the set STOP threshold.
1.4 - SENSOR DETECTION INFORMATION
Certain conditions may affect the ability of the sensor to correctly detect obstacles:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Presence of human beings, animals or small obstacles or objects/materials with low reflectance might not be detected by the parking system.
In case of heavy rain/snow the parking system might give an audible alert even if no obstacles are present: this does not necessarily indicate that the PDC is defective.
If the sensors are covered with mud, ice or snow (normal function resumes after cleaning or defrosting).
An extremely bumpy road or an incline, gravel or grass.
Vehicle horns, motorcycle engines, air brakes of large vehicles or other loud noises producing ultrasonic waves.
Heavy rain or splashes on the sensors and water puddles.
Obstacles located below the bumper will not be detected when they are in close proximity.
1.5 - SENSOR FAILURE INDICATION
When ignition is turned ON, the system provides an instant, automatic, self-diagnostic function. If all the sensors are operative the LED on the ON/OFF switch will light up and 1 Beep
will confirm activation. If one of the sensors is faulty or disconnected, a deep error tone (Bop) will sound followed by the number of beeps corresponding to the faulty sensor. The
cycle will repeat until all faulty sensors have been signaled. 2 Bops will confirm the end of the self-test cycle. The system w ill exclude any faulty sensor and keep the other ones
active. The following is an example of error indications:
Sensor 1 inoperative => 1 Bop + “1 Beep” + 2 closing Bops.
Sensor 1 and 2 inoperative => 1 Bop + “1 Beep” + 1 Bop + “2 Beeps” + 2 closing Bops.
1.6 - BASIC MAINTENANCE TIPS
When cleaning the sensors take special care not to scratch or damage the surface: carefully clean the sensors with a soft cloth.
In car washes which use steam jet or high-pressure washers, keep the nozzle at least 10 cm away from the sensors.

Sensors and adapters can be spray painted before assembly to match the color of the vehicle (optional). To spray paint proceed as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Use isopropyl alcohol to clean the sensors and the adapters and let dry. Avoid touching the cleaned surfaces.
Insert the selected adapters in the supplied cardboard template:
x
Center adapters => fully insert into the cardboard template slots from the top side.
x
Outer adapters => press halfway down the slots, up to the side tabs, from the top side.
The sensors must be inserted in the central slots from underneath the cardboard. For a perfect spray-paint finish, we recommend turning down the black silicone
seal around the sensor head before inserting the sensor into the slots (paint might not adhere to the silicone).
Fold the cardbox template into a box. Spray paint the sensors and the adapters and let dry thoroughly before assembling.
NB: Too much spray paint can impair the sensors performance.

10.0 - ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
The PDC kit is directly Plug & Play connected as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Connect the 4 wires coming out of the control unit to the 4 sensors (the longest wires to the sensors at the opposite end of the control unit).
Connect the connector coming out of the control unit to the corresponding battery connector.
After the ON/OFF switch is fitted on the dash, connect the 3 wires to connector “1”. Make sure the color of the wires attached to each pin matches the color of the wires on
the corresponding connector “2” as shown below.
Connect the ON/OFF switch connector “1” to the loudspeaker connector “2”.
10.1 - OPTIONAL CONNECTIONS:
1.
BLUE/BLACK wire: by connecting this wire to the reverse backup light, the sensors will automatically switch ON when reverse gear is selected during a parking
maneuver (when slotting back and forth into a parking space).
2.
VIOLET wire: by connecting this wire to the odometer you can set a speed threshold so that the system automatically shuts OFF when the vehicle exceeds the set speed
and automatically turns ON when the speed falls below the set speed (configuration “58”).
The system can also be set to turn ON when ignition is switched ON and turn OFF when the vehicle reaches the set speed (configuration “59”). In this case the system
can only be reactivated via the manual switch.
3.
BROWN wire: by connecting this wire to the radio MUTE, volume is temporarily excluded or reduced when an obstacle is detected.
10.2 - ODOMETER PULSE READING:
Turn ignition key ON. To set a speed threshold, when pulses/meter are known, use the values indicated in the configuration table (par. 12.0) otherwise program parameter “98” to
allow the buzzer to record the pulses. An acoustic signal will confirm the buzzer is in speed reading mode. The ON/OFF switch LED will also light up. Without turning ignition key
OFF, start the engine and drive a short distance. At the desired speed (we recommend not exceeding 10 km/h), press the ON/OFF switch to confirm the reading. A ‘Jingle’ will
confirm the speed reading has been learned by the buzzer.
10.3 - CHECK AFTER INSTALLATION
ATTENTION: Make sure there are no other conflicting Master devices in use nearby.
1.
Reconnect the negative battery terminal and wait 30 sec.
2.
Turn ignition key ON and start the engine. Activation will be confirmed by a short Beep and the LED on the manual switch will turn ON.
3.
Test the sensors one by one for detection by moving different obstacle simulators in front of the vehicle. The system should beep according to the warning zones.
x
Distances and detections are approximate because of the position, size and shape of the objects. For a more accurate detection, test the sensors by placing
the objects at different angles of the sensors field of view.
x
If needed, the sensor sensitivity can be modified (see configuration table).
4.
If the parking sensors are working correctly, secure the bumper in place.
