Cet appareil est conforme aux exigences gouvernementales en ce qui concerne l'exposition aux ondes radio.
Cet appareil est conçu et fabriqué pour ne pas dépasser les limites d'exposition aux radiofréquences (RF) de
la Federal Communications Commission (FCC) des États-Unis et d'Industrie Canada (IC). Pour profiter d’un
rendement optimal et pour éviter de dépasser les limites d'exposition aux RF de la FCC et d'IC, veuillez tou-
jours orienter l'appareil en mode paysage en positionnant l'antenne cellulaire (située dans le coin supérieur
droit de l'appareil) loin du corps ou d'autres objets.
Hutch ELD Installation Guide 3
La norme d'exposition emploie le débit d'absorption spécifique (DAS) comme unité de mesure. Le DAS
maximum établi par la FCC est de 1,6 W/kg (sur 1 g de tissus) pour le corps et de 4,0 W/kg (sur 10 g
de tissus) pour les extrémités. Les essais pour le DAS ont été menés en utilisant des positions de
fonctionnement standard acceptées par la FCC et IC, et le matériel a I'essai transmettait sur différents
canaux au niveau de puissance spécifié. Bien que le DAS soit mesuré au niveau de puissance le plus
élevé pour chaque fréquence, le DAS réel de l'appareil en fonctionnement peut être bien en deçà du
maximum permis, parce que l'appareil regle la puissance de la transmission en partie selon la prox-
imité du réseau cellulaire. Règle générale, plus vous êtes près d'une station cellulaire, plus la puis-
La valeur de DAS la plus élevée rapportée pour cet appareil par la FCC est de 1,26 W/kg (sur 1 g de tissus)
pres du corps et de 0,68 W/kg (sur 10 g de tissus) pour l'exposition des extrémités.
Lappareil a été testé selon les normes et procédures de mesure décrites dans le supplément C du Bul-
letin 65 de l'Office of Engineering and Technology de la FCC (édition 01-01), et par la norme CNR-102
au Canada. La FCC et IC ont accordé leur autorisation à cet appareil et déterminé que tous les niveaux
de DAS mesurés sont conformes aux directives sur l'exposition aux RF. Les données sur le DAS de cet
appareil sont enregistrées à la FCC et se trouvent dans la section « Display Grant » (afficher une de-
mande) de la page www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid, a l'aide du numéro FCC A3LSMT377W. Vous pouvez

(» RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This device meets the government's requirements for exposure to radio waves. This device is designed
and manufactured to not exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States Government and Industry Canada
(IC) of Canada. For optimal device performance and so that human exposure to RF energy does not
exceed the FCC and IC guidelines, always follow these instructions and precautions: Orient the device in
landscape mode with the cellular antenna (located at the top right corner of the device) away from your
body or other objects.
The exposure standard employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR.
The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg(1g) for body exposure and 4.0W/ kg(10g) for extremity expo-
sure. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC/IC with the
EUT transmitting at the specified power level in different channels. Although SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level in each frequency band, the actual SAR level of the device while in operation
can be well below the maximum value because device adjusts its cellular transmitting power based, in
part, on proximity to the wireless network.
In general, the closer you are to a cellular base station, the lower the cellular transmitting power level.
The highest SAR value for the device as reported to the FCC is 1.26 W/kg(1g) when placed next to the
body and 0.68 W/kg(10g) when exposed to extremities.
Hutch ELD Installation Guide 5
The device was tested according to measurement standards and procedures specified in FCC OET
Bulletin 65, Supplement C (Edition 01-01) and Canada RSS 102. The FCC/IC has granted an Equipment
Authorization for this device with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the defined RF
exposure guidelines. SAR information on this device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the
Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid and searching on FCC ID: A3LSMT377W.

O General Wiring and Installation Guidelines
(> Making Electrical Connections - Standard Installations
For standard HUTCH installations, the only electrical connection needed to the truck will be the
power 1/0 cable (harness).
(> Cutting and Splicing Power 1/0 Cable - Non-standard Installation
Some trucks may use a different 9-pin diagnostic connector than supplied on the HUTCH “Y” cable.
The connector on the HUTCH cable will mount easily in the dash. Therefore, no cutting is required.
Hutch ELD Installation Guide
If the available power 1/O cable does not mate to the truck's diagnostic connector, the “Y” portion of the
cable can be cut off and the leads spliced into an appropriate source:

CAN_H J1939+ TRUCK WIRE (YELLOW TO YELLOW)
CAN_L J1939- TRUCK WIRE (GREEN TO GREEN)
(> Approved Hutch Electrical Connectors
The wiring for the HUTCH system is expected to
be inside the cab. The only Hutch-approved
electrical connections other than standard
connectors are crimp butt splices and crimp ring
terminals. Connections are typically made by
mating the two connectors. Many of the following
general guidelines apply to non-standard HUTCH
connections where the power I/O cable must be
cut because it does easily mount in the trucks
dashboard.
Caution
Not following proper wiring guidelines and using improper crimps and butt splices
may cause intermittent connections and may result in unexpected truck down time
or system failure.
Hutch ELD Installation Guide E
(= Wire Stripping
Caution
Use care in stripping wires. Vibration can cause nicked wires to fail. Using wire cutters,
knives, or other tools can damage the conductor wire and/or insulation.
Knowing and following proper wire stripping techniques is essential for performing successful and safe
electrical connections of all system components.
Using a wire stripper, strip approximately 1/4" off the end of an insulated wire
—* approx. [=
1/4
1
After stripping the wire, verify that the wire is not severed, nicked, or damaged by the stripping
tool. If the wire has been properly stripped, it is ready to be butt spliced. If the wire has been
damaged, restrip the wire (see step 1.)
(= Butt Splicing
© Hutch recommends Nylon insulated, seamless butt connectors with inspection windows.
© Heat-shrinkable butt connectors are preferred.
Hutch ELD Installation Guide 25
Make sure the size of the butt splice is appropriate for the job. A good butt splice has these
characteristics:
® The ends of the bare wires are visible through an inspection window.
© The ends of the wires “butt” up against the stop.
© The wires are not exposed beyond splice shielding.
® Crimping does not sever or damage the wires or insulation.
(= Crimping
® When crimping a butt-spliced wire or cable, be sure the insulated butt splice is crimped using the
insulated position on the crimp tool and not the crimping “tooth” of the tool.
@® Crimping butt splices incorrectly can result in a severed wire and a failed wire connection.
Caution
DO NOT crimp on the crimp "tooth"
Crimp tooth

Do NOT crimp wire here
Hutch ELD Installation Guide РЗ
Using a crimping tool, crimp the butt splice one end at a time. First, crimp the inside crimp
area where the wire has been stripped. Apply necessary pressure to this inside area.
Note:
The objective is to apply the necessary pressure to crimp the butt splice closed and hold the wire
connections together. Do not apply so much pressure as to crush the butt splice and sever the wire
or the insulation on the wire.
WRONG CORRECT
Butt splice is visibly crushed, Crimping is done properly, protecting
possibly damaging the wire the wire and the wire connection.
and the wire connection. No exposed wires.
After crimping the inside of both ends of the butt splice on the “insulated” area of the crimping
tool, next crimp the outside of both ends of the butt splice.

Do a pull test. Pull on both ends of the wires to ensure a solid butt-spliced connection exists.
The crimped butt splice securely grips the insulated wires.
WARNING
If using heat shrinkable crimps, DO NOT use a heat gun or open flame near
combustible materials. Use a heat gun only when it is safe and appropriate to do so.
Protect surrounding wiring and other components when using a heat gun

(> Ring Terminals
When making electrical connections, crimp ring terminals onto the ends of the wires to ensure
good contacts. A properly crimped ring terminal has these characteristics:
O The barrel crimping indent is well-formed and properly positioned.
© The insulated wire’s grip impression is well-formed and provides proper support without
crushing the insulation
O The wire does not move independently of the lug. Firmly tug on the ring terminal to ensure it
does not pull loose.
® The end of the bare wire protrudes through the crimp barrel approximately 0.03 to 0.125"
depending on the lug size and crimp tool.

(= Proper Grounding
When establishing a good chassis ground, avoid areas that may be potentially isolated from ground by
a hinge or bad welds. It is extremely important that you create clean, secure, tight, metal-to-metal
grounds. If grounding terminals are not available, remove the paint from the surface of the metal
connected to the chassis to make the ground. Make sure the wires are not strained or vulnerable to
damage.
WARNING
Not following proper grounding guidelines may cause intermittent connections and may
result in unexpected truck downtime or system failure.
(> General Installation Guidelines
® Determine the most direct and protected route when routing cables to connect the
components to each other and to the vehicle.
O Do not trim cable lengths to fit a specific vehicle.
© Use only wire strippers for stripping wires.
