3 INTRODUCTION

This manual contains installation procedures for the XG-25M mobile radios and related options and accessories. Procedures cover the mounting and cabling of the radio equipment, as well as basic invehicle radio tests.

3.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The XG-25M mobile radio is a high-performance digital mobile radio. It can operate in Project 25 (P25) trunked (Phase 1 or 2), P25 conventional, EDACS ® /ProVoice™ trunked, and analog conventional modes.

The radio is available in three (3) different RF bands:

• 136 to 174 MHz 50-Watt VHF radio;

• 378 to 470 MHz 50-Watt UHF radio; and,

• 700/800 MHz 35-Watt dual-band radio.

The XG-25M is typically installed in a front-mount configuration; see Figure 3-1 below. However, an

optional field-applied remote-mount kit is available that supports a remote-mount radio configuration. I a remote-mount configuration, the control head connects to the radio using remote interface hardware and a

30-foot cable included in the kit as shown in Figure 3-2.

Figure 3-1: Front-Mount XG-25M Mobile Radio (Front and Rear Views)

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

16

Figure 3-2: Remote-Mount XG-25M Mobile Radio (With Optional Remote-Mount Kit Applied)

The XG-25M radio is designed to operate in a mobile environment, typically within a motor vehicle. It must be connected to an external transmit/receive antenna such as one mounted to the vehicle’s rooftop or trunk lid. Several different types of externally mounted antennas are approved and available for use with

the radio, as listed in Table 4-3 (page 29).

The radio provides half-duplex voice and data communications. Voice communications are accomplished via a “push-to-talk” (PTT) type microphone and an external speaker connected to the radio.

The radio features a large text and graphics-based liquid-crystal display (LCD), and front panel controls for user control of the radio.

The XG-25M must be 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. Specifications are

included in Section 2.2 of this manual. In the remote-mount application, the control head does not require

its own DC operation power source; it receives DC operating power from the radio via the remote control cable.

The XG-25M may be equipped with an optional built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking receiver. The GPS antenna can be integrated into the mobile transmit/receive antenna (i.e., a

“combination” antenna). Alternately, the GPS antenna can be located/mounted completely separate from the mobile transmit/receive antenna.

The XG-25M exceeds many tough environmental specifications (see Table 2-2) included within military

standard MIL-STD-810G, the radio industry standard TIA/EIA-603, and the radio standard established by the U.S. Forest Service.

The radio supports operation on APCO Project 25 compliant Common Air Interface (P25 CAI) radio networks, and operation in a talk-around mode in accordance with the APCO Project 25. P25 Phase 1 radio systems utilize Improved Multi-Band Excitation ® (IMBE) speech and data compression technology.

P25 Phase 2 radio systems use Advanced Multi-Band Excitation Plus 2 ® (AMBE+2 ® ) speech and data compression technology. Both of these compression technologies were developed by Digital Voice

Systems, Inc.

4 INSTALLATION PROCESS

4.1 GENERAL INFORMATION

Before starting, plan the installation carefully so it will meet the following requirements:

• The installation must be safe for the operator and passengers within the vehicle.

• The installation allows for convenient access by the operator, as applicable (i.e., the control head or hand-held controller).

• The mobile radio is mounted in a location assuring the vehicle occupants’ safety and out of the way of passengers and auto mechanics.

• The equipment is installed away from the airbag deployment areas.

• The equipment is protected from water damage.

• The installation is neat and allows easy service access.

Before the starting the installation, it is imperative to discuss with the customer the exact location in the vehicle where equipment is going to be installed. This will prevent hours of rework and reinstallation, and will build customer satisfaction.

4.2 RADIO PROGRAMMING

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.

Radio Personality Manager (RPM) software application TQS3385 (part number SK-104768-001) is used to program the XG-25M mobile radio for trunked radio systems. RPM can also be used to program the radio for analog conventional and P25 conventional operations. For additional information, refer to

RPM’s built-in online help and/or RPM Software Release Notes, publication number MS-012550-001.

RPM can also be used to flash new operating software (i.e., firmware) into an XG-25M mobile radio.

Refer to the radio’s maintenance manual for additional information.

RPM Release R9A or later is required to program the VHF radio.

RPM Release R11A or later is required to program the UHF radio.

RPM Release R10A or later is required to program the 700/800 MHz radio.

The XG-25M mobile radio can be programmed via a serial port at the 44-pin connector on the radio’s rear panel or via a serial port at the front panel microphone connector. Programming instructions are beyond the scope of this manual.

For programming via the rear panel serial port, Option Cable 14002-0174-08 must be used to connect the radio’s rear panel 44-pin connector to a service computer running the RPM application. A 9-pin DB-style connector of the Option Cable is used for connection to the computer’s serial port.

For programming via the mic connector serial port, Front Panel Programming Cable 14015-0200-01 must be used to connect the radio’s mic connector to a service computer running the RPM application. The

9-pin DB-style connector of the Option Cable is used for connection to the computer’s serial port.

Programming via the mic connector’s serial port using Front Panel Programming Cable has

certain limitations! Refer to Section 9.3 on page 72 for additional information.

4.3 PRE-INSTALLATION VEHICLE CHECK

Performing a vehicle pre-installation equipment check will provide a vehicle operation baseline prior to installing Harris mobile equipment. This pre-check can be documented using the sample

Installation

Checklist

provided later in this manual.

At times the performance of the pre-check may require a certified operator.

NOTE

The items to be checked are detailed on the Installation Checklist. All items are to be checked, and the results indicated on the checklist, or indicated as “n/a” or “not applicable” if the vehicle does not have it.

Record clearly any items that are non-functional, and any servicing that must be completed before the install can begin. Bring these to attention of the authorized customer representative.

19

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

4.4 PLANNING THE INSTALLATION

Carefully plan the mounting locations of all components (radio, control head/hand-held controller, antenna, and cables) and determine the routes for all wiring and cables.

Before installing the mobile radio equipment, check the vehicle manufacturer’s user manual for warnings or recommendations.

Harris recommends the buyer use only an authorized representative to install and service this product. The warranties provided to the buyer under the terms of sale shall be null and void if this product is installed or serviced improperly, and Harris will have no further obligation to the buyer for any damage caused to the product or to any person or personal property.

The radio uses a heat sink on the radio and natural convection as its method of cooling.

Cooling occurs when the ambient temperature of the air surrounding the radio is lower than the radio’s heat sink temperature, and air flows freely around the heat sink. The design of the heat sink is thermally sufficient to dissipate the maximum amount of heat generated by the radio as long as the ambient air temperature around it remains below the maximum specified limit of

+140° Fahrenheit (+60° Celsius).

In order to ensure proper operation, the following guidelines must be followed:

• Operate the radio within its specified temperature limits.

• Do not place items above, against, or around the radio.

• Do not mount the radio upside down. Mounting the radio upside down will cause its heat sink to not operate as designed and could cause the radio to overheat in certain environments reducing the radio’s performance.

• When operating, keep the radio out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.

• Installations behind a door or cover or in a protective enclosure must provide adequate free-air ventilation or cooling to the radio.

The radio will automatically reduce its transmit RF output power when its ambient temperature exceeds approximately +140° Fahrenheit (+60° Celsius).

Use only Harris supplied mounting brackets, hardware, and interconnect cabling when installing the mobile radio, control heads, and accessories (speakers, microphones, etc.).

Failure to use approved parts and accessories may cause product issues, such as; degraded radio performance, corrosion from dissimilar metals, or substandard equipment installations.

Detailed installation procedures and testing mobile radio products are given in the applicable sections.

Items to consider during the planning phase are listed in the following subsections.

20

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

4.4.1 Mounting Location and Considerations

• The radio’s mounting location should be chosen to provide protection of the cables and connectors on the rear of the unit.

• Consider the location of the fuel tank and drive shaft. Mounting screws may pierce the tank or damage the shaft.

• Connectors on the rear panel of the radio are not watertight. Ensure waterproof covers are installed on unused connectors.

• Care should be taken to avoid installing where condensation from vehicle air-conditioners or leaking windows may spill onto the radio.

• Orientation of the radio should allow access to the connectors for future testing and programming.

• The control head should be positioned so the driver / operator can have easy view and access to the display and controls.

• The location of the radio should be chosen so as not to interfere with driver and passenger movement or inhibit the movement or adjustment of vehicle seats.

• The radio and any associated equipment should be located out of the vehicle’s airbag zone.

• A microphone hang-up clip is provided as part of the installation kit. This should be located to provide convenient access to the driver / operator, yet not interfere with any vehicle controls.

• Installations in certain harsh environments may require using best practices to protect the equipment, including the following:

 Positioning the equipment to avoid direct impact from water and hose-down, snow, dust, smoke, gases, road debris, oils, chemicals and corrosive agents.

 Installation behind a door or cover in a protective enclosure (must provide adequate airflow and cooling).

 Use of splash guards, shields, or covers, to protect against direct impacts.

Refer to the Caring for The Radio Equipment section on page 84 for additional information.

4.4.2 Power Source Location and Considerations

• Some vehicles operate on 24 VDC; so it’s important that the location chosen is a 12 VDC source. If a

12 VDC source is not available, a converter will need to be installed.

• Ensure that the location chosen is a main power source and will allow the addition of added terminals.

• If an auxiliary fuse block is going to be used, ensure that the location chosen for the block will guard against possible short circuits.

• Some vehicles, trucks in particular, will have studs on the firewall that may be used to pass power without the need for a through hole. These can be used only if verified that they are not used to connect data cables or wires.

21

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

4.4.3 Ignition Sense Location and Considerations

Chose an ignition sense that will not interfere with the safety related systems of the vehicle.

The ignition sense wire (white wire) connection determines how or when power is applied to the mobile radio. The white wire is sometimes referred to as the “white ignition switch wire” or the “ignition sense input wire.”

There are three configurations for using the ignition sense wire to power the mobile radio:

The mobile radio is powered on and off with the vehicle ignition. See Section 4.4.3.1.

The mobile radio is powered on and off with a master switch or timer. See Section 4.4.3.2.

The mobile radio is hot-wired, power is always applied to the mobile radio. See Section 4.4.3.3.

Regardless of the configuration, the radio’s main DC power input (red A+ wire) must be connected through an in-line fuse to unswitched vehicle DC power.

Any DC input power provided to the radio must be between +10.8 to +16.6 Vdc.

If the vehicle experiences AC noise or DC spikes exceeding 18 volts, 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. Also, a fuse must be placed in-line before any noise filter. Contact the Harris

Technical Assistance Center for additional information.

4.4.3.1 Power On/Off Using Vehicle Ignition

To power the mobile radio on and off with the vehicle’s ignition, the sense wire needs to be connected to one of switched power sources, typically known as “Accessory” power.

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. 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 radio’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

The accessory source is normally found in the vehicle’s interior fuse block. The source chosen should have nothing to do with the vehicle’s safety systems. Refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual when choosing an appropriate accessory source.

4.4.3.2 Power On/Off Using Master Power Switch or Timer

In this configuration, the radio remains on even when the ignition key is removed from the vehicle and a separate on/off is controlled by a master switch or an in-line timer. Typically the 12 VDC source is the same as the radio’s power source.

22

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

• Master switch install - This allows the radio to remain powered on after the ignition is turned off. It is important to note that the vehicle’s battery will go dead if the switch is not powered off.

• Timer circuit install - This allows the radio to remain powered on for a set period of time. This configuration can also drain the battery if it is weak or old.

The required fuse rating is 3 amperes. When using this configuration, the radio’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

4.4.3.3 Power On/Off Using Mobile Radio On/Off/Volume Control Knob

In this configuration, the radio’s on/off power is controlled using its on/off/volume control. This enables the radio to remain on even when the ignition key is removed from the vehicle and a separate on/off switch is not desired and/or acceptable. The ignition sense line is connected directly to an unswitched

12 VDC power source via a 3 amp in-line fuse. It is important to note that the vehicle’s battery will go dead if the radio’s switch is allowed to remain on and the vehicle is not running.

4.4.4 Ground / Return Location and Considerations

• Care should be taken to ensure the location chosen is truly to vehicle ground.

• The location chosen should not be in an area that is prone to moisture retention.

• Ensure that the location will protect the terminal from being bumped and allow the connection to loosen.

• The location must allow a through bolt with a nut and lock washer or be at a factory ground.

• Chose a location that will allow the ground lead to be as short as possible.

4.4.5 Antenna Mounting Considerations

• Antenna location must be chosen based on the installation instructions provided in this manual and in consideration of other items installed on the vehicle’s roof.

• There must be at least a 12" separation between the antenna and any other roof mounted equipment.

• If the antenna being used requires a ground plane, the location chosen must provide an acceptable ground.

• If mirror mounts are being used, ensure the mirrors are properly installed.

4.4.6 Data, Antenna, and Power Cable Routing Considerations

• Cables should not be routed under vehicle carpeting where the feet of occupants rest.

• Plan the cable runs so as to protect the cables from chafing, crushing, moisture, or overheating.

• Routing under the dash should not interfere with, or pass through, the steering column, brake pedal, clutch pedal, or the accelerator mechanisms.

• Carefully chose the location where the wiring will exit the passenger compartment and enter the engine compartment.

23

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

4.5 WIRING and CABLING REQUIREMENTS

4.5.1 Crimping Requirements

Always use the proper crimp tool to insure a permanent connection is achieved. Pliers are never allowed.

Ratcheting crimpers are recommended.

4.5.2 Splicing Requirements

Splicing the 12 VDC (A+) wire is not allowed. For other wires, if a splice must be installed such as to extend the wire, the following requirements must be followed:

1.

When wire is routed through hidden locations such as door jams, under the dash or, otherwise hidden from view use a solid run.

Any splice installed must be visible to future service technicians. The best way accomplish this is to cut off the wire back near the equipment connector and splice on a new wire.

2.

The splice wire used must have insulation rated for use in an engine compartment.

3.

Estimate the length of the run and determine required wire gauge.

The gauge of the wire used must be based on the length of cable run for a load of approximately

10 Amps and maximum allowable voltage drop of 200 mV at peak load. If larger gauge wire is not required the same gauge shall be used, but never a smaller gauge.

4.

When splicing a wire that could be exposed to moisture use a butt splice encased within heat shrink tubing to seal the connection.

4.5.3 Battery Connection Requirements

The 12 VDC power source should be the battery if possible. Other sources may be used if a battery connection is not available or feasible. Acceptable sources are the input to the main relay / fuse panel in the engine compartment, other main 12 VDC terminal, or installation of an auxiliary fuse block.

An inline fuse holder is used to protect the equipment and the vehicle from a possible short circuit or excessive current draw. The fuse amperage must be according to this installation manual. The fuse holder is water resistant to protect the fuse from the elements and avoid the possibility of corrosion. For optimum safety, the fuse should be placed as close to the battery as possible.

If an auxiliary fuse block is being installed, the conductor used to connect it to 12 VDC should be gauged large enough to support the current flow of all the equipment that is fed by the block. The gauge of the cable to be used must be based on the length of cable run for a load of approximately 10 Amps and maximum allowable voltage drop of 200 mV at peak load. In most cases this conductor consists of #6

AWG or #8 AWG wire. The insulation of this conductor must be properly rated for engine compartments.

An inline fuse holder must be installed on this wire near the battery. The fuse holder must be water resistant and the amperage of the fuse installed should be rated large enough to handle the total current flow of the block. In most cases the fuse rating is 30 or 50 amps. In this configuration, the radio’s in-line fuse holders will be located between the auxiliary fuse block and the radio/control head.

24

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

If the battery system is not a 12 VDC system, a Harris approved converter must be installed. The same requirements apply for the wire feeding the converter as are listed in the previous paragraph for an auxiliary fuse block.

5 ANTENNA INSTALLATION

As a guide for determining the best possible mounting location and reducing human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy during transmit mode, refer to the following:

For a 50-Watt UHF Radio: See Table 5-1 (page 33)

For a 50-Watt VHF Radio: See Table 5-2 (page 35)

For a 35-Watt 700/800 MHz Radio: See Table 5-3 (page 36)

Review all Regulatory and Safety Information presented in the radio’s Product Safety

Manual. A transmitting antenna must be installed in accordance with the guidelines presented in both the Product Safety Manual and this manual. The Product Safety

Manual is included in the radio equipment package when the package ships from the factory.

Figure 5-1: Antenna Installation Process

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

5.1 ANTENNA MOUNTING LOCATIONS

Antennas must be mounted in one of four (4) possible locations on the vehicle. Table 5-1 (UHF), Table

5-2 (VHF) and Table 5-3 (700/800 MHz) show the recommended locations and antenna part numbers. A

separation distance of five (5) feet or an intervening ground plane between the antenna, the mobile radio,

and accessories is needed to avoid possible interference. See Table 4-3 for additional antenna information.

Review all Regulatory and Safety Information presented in the radio’s Product Safety

Manual. A transmitting antenna must be installed in accordance with the guidelines presented in both the Product Safety Manual and this manual.

NOTE

Failure to mount the antennas in the recommended locations may cause unintended interference.

Always follow the antenna manufacturer’s instructions when mounting an antenna.

Also refer to the respective Recommended Minimum Safe Lateral Distance table presented in the Product Safety Manual. These tables list the recommended minimum safe distance 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.

5.1.1 Direct Center or Center-Rear of Rooftop

The center of the vehicle’s roof is the best location for a rooftop-mount antenna (location  in the following figures). For optimal performance, the mounting area under the antenna must be flat with a minimum radius of six (6) inches of metal ground plane. It must be located directly in the center of the roof to minimize human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy. Other obstructions such as a light bar or another antenna may prevent the antenna from being mounted in the direct center of the roof. In this case, 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  in the following figures).

5.1.2 Center of Trunk Lid

Certain vehicles do not allow for the antenna to be placed in the center or center-rear of the roof. In this case, the next best location for the antenna is in the direct center of the trunk lid (location  in the following figures). In this case, an elevated-feed-point antenna is recommended. Although this type of antenna does not require a metal ground plane, it must be located directly in the center of the trunk lid to minimize human exposure to RF electromagnetic energy.

5.1.3 Rear Deck Lid for Stand-Alone GPS Receive Antenna

If the XG-25M mobile radio does not use a GPS combination-type antenna and it is equipped with a GPS receiver, a stand-alone GPS receive antenna must be separately located and mounted. The vehicle’s rear deck lid (location  in the following figures) is the recommended mounting location for this case. This locates the GPS antenna inside the vehicle.

5.2 RF ANTENNA INSTALLATION PROCEDURES

An antenna must be installed before completing the radio installation.

Table 4-3 (page 29), Table 5-1 (UHF), Table 5-2 (VHF) and Table 5-3 (700/800 MHz) list the mobile

radio antennas approved for use with this mobile radio. As presented in the previous section, various mounting locations exist. Optimal performance is achieved via a rooftop antenna mounted in the direct center of the motor vehicle’s roof.

5.2.1 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 5.2.1.3.

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

This These standard ¾-inch NMO antenna mounts requires 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-low-loss coax cable (LMR/RF-195 or equivalent).

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

This thick-roof NMO antenna mount uses 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/RF-195 or equivalent).

For thick-roof NMO antenna mount AN-125001-003 or AN-125001-004, using a ⅜-inch mounting hole requires 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 mount 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.

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

1.

Select the antenna mounting location in accordance with the information presented in the Antenna

Mounting Locations

section (page 32) of this manual. If necessary, contact the Technical Assistance

Center for assistance, see page 86 for 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.

38

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

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.

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.

With 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.

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.

9.

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.

10.

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.

11.

As illustrated in Figure 5-2 and Figure 5-3, 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.

12.

Using a 15 /

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.

39

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

13.

Install the antenna element per the procedure in Section 5.2.4.

5.2.2 Installing NMO Magnetic Antenna Mounts AN-125001-007 and AN-125001-

008

1.

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

2.

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.

3.

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.

40

4.

Install the antenna element per the procedure in Section 5.2.4.

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

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.

5.2.3 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.

5.2.4 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 5-2 or Figure 5-3) 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.

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 element from the antenna mount, and secure the element in a safe location inside the vehicle. This will prevent the wash equipment from damaging the element and/or mount. After exiting the wash equipment, thoroughly dry the top of the mount before re-installing the element.

5.

Continue with the connection procedure presented in the next section.

5.2.5 Installing the Coax Cable and TNC RF Connector

1.

Route the coax cable from the antenna mount to the location where the mobile radio will be installed.

Remove headliner panel, interior panels, etc., as necessary. The cable must be kept out of casual contact from persons within the vehicle. Tie and stow the cable as necessary to protect it from possible chafing. Observe and follow this

WARNING

:

Do not cut an antenna cable any shorter than six (6) feet (1.83 meters), as measured from the base of the antenna mount to the TNC connector that mates to the radio.

2.

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

cable. For crimping instructions, see Figure 5-4 or the instructions supplied with antenna mount.

41

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

3.

The antenna cable is connected to the radio’s TNC receptacle-type (female) RF connector per a procedure presented later in this manual. The cable and its TNC connector must be protected from damage, dirt, and/or metal shavings which may be generated during the mechanical and electrical installation of the radio. Temporarily tying the connector and cable-end within a small plastic bag is recommended.

Figure 5-4: Crimping Instructions for TNC RF Connector

All cables should have a service loop near each connector end. Do not bend the cables at severe angles near the connector end. Above all, 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.

When performing the Performance Test procedures presented in Section 10.3, the following

antenna elements must be field-tuned (trimmed/cut) for maximum performance/minimum reflection:

• Part number AN-225002-003 (136 – 174 MHz, 3 dBd) - For length cutting information, see the instructions included with the element.

• Part number AN-225002-004 (136 – 174 MHz, 2.4 dBd) - For length cutting information, see the instructions included with the element.

• Part number AN-225006-001 (132 – 960 MHz, 0 dBd) - For length cutting

information, see the charts in Figure 5-5 on page 43, and/or the instructions included

with the element.

Other antenna elements used with the radio are factory-tuned and therefore they do not require tuning in the field.

5.3 GPS RECEIVER ANTENNA INSTALLATION PROCESS

Connecting to a GPS antenna is only required if the (optional) GPS receiver is installed in the

radio and its use is required. Refer to Section 8.3 for additional information.

If the XG-25M radio is equipped with the GPS receiver option, the GPS receiver requires connection to an externally-mounted GPS antenna. The GPS antenna must be kept at least six (6) inches away from any other antenna mounted on the vehicle and it must have at least six inches of surface ground plane beneath it.

A combination (“combo”) antenna kit includes a GPS antenna built into the base of the mobile

antenna. Refer to Table 4-3 (page 29) for available combo antennas.

5.3.1 General Installation Procedure

1.

After selecting a mounting location, install the antenna in accordance with the antenna manufacturer’s mounting and testing instructions.

If necessary, contact the Technical Assistance Center . See page 86 for contact information.

2.

Remove headliner panel, interior panels, etc., as necessary.

3.

Route the cable from the antenna base to the radio transceiver’s mounting location.

The cable must be kept out of casual contact from persons within the vehicle. Tie and stow it as necessary to protect it from possible chafing.

Do not alter the GPS antenna cable length; tie and stow excess cable as necessary.

4.

Protect the cable and its (male) SMA connector from damage, dirt, and/or metal shavings which may be generated during the mechanical and electrical installation of the radio. Temporarily tying the connector and cable-end in a small plastic bag is recommended.

The antenna cable will be connected to the radio’s SMA receptacle-type (female) RF connector using

a procedure presented later in this manual (i.e., procedure on page 74).

44

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

5.3.2 Installing a GPS Antenna Inside the Rear-Deck

The following GPS antenna installation procedure is recommended for inside-rear-deck mounting of GPS receive-only antennas, such as AN-025187-001 or AN-025187-003. Many vehicle makes/models, such as the Ford ® Crown Victoria ® , may use this installation method:

1.

Carefully remove the center rear brake light assembly by removing the screws on each side of the assembly. Lift and set it aside.

2.

Route the cable from the GPS antenna through the rear deck, next to the cable assembly for the rear brake light.

3.

Position the antenna near the rear glass.

For an antenna that is not a magnetic-mount, secure it to the deck near the rear glass in accordance with the instructions provided with the GPS antenna.

4.

Reassemble the rear deck brake light assembly.

Use caution to not crimp/pinch the GPS coaxial cable. A small relief notch may need to be cut in the light assembly housing for cable passage.

5.

Protect the cable and its (male) SMA connector from damage, dirt, and/or metal shavings which may be generated during the mechanical and electrical installation of the radio. Temporarily tying the connector and cable-end in a small plastic bag is recommended.

6.

Route the cable to the area near where the radio will be installed.

7.

Tie and stow the antenna cable as necessary to prevent cable chafing or damage from moving items, like the trunk lid’s hinges and springs.

The antenna cable will be connected to the radio’s SMA receptacle-type (female) RF connector using

a procedure presented later in this manual (i.e., procedure on page 74).

Do not alter the length of cable from the GPS antenna. The SMA connector on the end of the antenna cable is not field-replaceable.

6 RADIO INSTALLATION

Installing a mobile radio consists of the following:

• Installing mobile radio bracket and radio;

• Installing radio wiring and cabling;

• Installing speaker bracket and speaker;

• Installing microphone and mic clip.

Equipment should be mounted only after the authorized customer representative has approved

the installation plan. Figure 6-1 shows a basic process flow for mounting the mobile equipment.

NOTE

Figure 6-1: Front-Mount Equipment Installation Process

Prior to beginning the physical installation, verify the radio has the proper version of software and it has been configured properly for this customer. Consult with the radio system network administration personnel as necessary.

NOTE

The equipment must always be secured to the vehicle using sheet metal screws or bolts and original mounting hardware provided with the installation kit. No other direct mounting to the radio or control head enclosure should be made, as this could damage internal components.

Secure mounting of the radio and accessories is an important safety consideration. If the equipment is not securely mounted, the components could become a projectile during a vehicle accident or an emergency stop.

NOTE

To mount equipment, refer to the following sections.

46

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

6.1 MOUNTING THE RADIO

This section provides detailed instructions for mechanically installing the XG-25M mobile radio. The instructions apply to front-mounted radios and includes additional information for remoted-mounted radios.

The Mounting Bracket Kit, 14015-0201-01 [item 1 listed in Table 4-1 (page 27)], is used for both front

and remote-mounted radios. The kit includes a heavy-gauge steel U-shaped mounting bracket and

associated mounting hardware as shown in Figure 6-3. The bracket’s dimensions are shown in Figure 6-4.

Both the radio and the mounting bracket have multiple holes in both sides for adjusting the radio within the bracket. The radio has four (4) threaded mounting holes, two (2) per side, and the mounting bracket has twelve (12) corresponding holes, six (6) per side.

The radio should be attached to a mounting surface using this bracket. The bracket can be mounted above or below the radio and the radio must be secured to the bracket using the four (4) M5 socket-head screws included in the Mounting Bracket Kit (2 screws per side).

The radio can be positioned straight in the bracket (i.e., parallel with the bottom surface of the bracket), or it can be tilted up or down at an angle of approximately 15 degrees maximum. When positioned straight in the bracket, the radio extends approximately 2 inches (5 centimeters) from the front and rear edges of the bracket. In the rear, additional clearance must be included for cables.

• Front-Mount Radio: For a front-mount radio installation, the design allows a front-to-rear tilting of the radio within the bracket for the best viewing angle, and a front-to-rear position offset. Typically, the tilt, or offset, or both, may be applied to a front-mount radio installation to position the frontmount radio for best operator viewing and control access.

• Remote-Mount Radio: For a remote-mount radio installation, the radio bracket tilt and the offset design are generally not put to use, as neither would be necessary. The radio is simply centered within the bracket and parallel with the mounting surface.

The optional CH-25 Remote-Control Conversion Kit includes a mounting bracket for the control head. This bracket allows the head’s tilt to be adjusted for best operator viewing and

control access. The Control head installation procedures are included in the Remote-Mount

Radio Installation section that begins on page 59.

Observe the follow with respect to clearances at the front of the radio:

• Front-Mount Radio: For a front-mount radio, the area directly at the front of the radio must be completely clear of all objects (e.g., gear shift, other radio equipment, etc.) so the operator can easily access and view the radio.

• Remote-Mount Radio: For a remote-mount radio, the area directly at the front of the radio must have clearance for the installation and removal of the Remote Control Cable. At least 6 inches (15.2 centimeters) of space is recommended.

6.1.1 Mounting Bracket Installation

For a remote-mount radio installation, the CH-25 Remote-Control Conversion Kit must be applied to the existing front-mount radio, to convert it to a remote-mount radio with a separate control head. To accomplish this, complete the procedures presented in the kit’s

Product

Manual

, publication number 14221-1510-4450, included with the conversion kit.

After completing the conversion, continue with the radio’s mounting bracket installation.

When selecting a mounting location for the radio, verify sufficient clearance can be maintained around the radio for installation and service access. A minimum clearance of approximately four (4) inches

(10 centimeters) is recommended at the rear, left and right sides of the radio. As previously stated, for a front-mount radio, the area directly at the front of the radio must be completely clear of objects so the

48

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D operator can easily access and view the radio’s front panel. For a remote-mount radio, clearance at the front of the radio must be sufficient for removal and attachment of the Remote Control Cable.

The radio’s mounting bracket must be attached to a secure metal surface that meets or exceeds the minimum 1/16-inch-thick steel sheet metal requirement in accordance with the following

WARNING

. For example, it can be attached directly to the bottom of the dash if the gauge of the sheet metal is high and the surface is firm and flat, or it can be attached to the transmission hump, etc., if a mounting wedge (not included) is utilized. The radio weighs approximately 6 pounds (2.7 kilograms).

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 radio and its mounting 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.

In addition to improving safety of the installation, firm mounting also prevents unreasonable vibration that could damage the radio, adversely affect transceiver performance and/or cause its cable connections to loosen. An improperly mounted radio may experience degradation in the quality of voice and data communications.

As shown in Figure 6-4, the bracket is both left-to-right and front-to-rear symmetrical. It has eleven (11)

holes for securing it to a mounting surface. At least four (4) of these holes must be used to secure the bracket to the mounting surface. Four 1-inch-long #10-32 stainless-steel self-tapping screws are included in the Mounting Bracket Kit for this purpose.

However, some other type of hardware (not supplied) may be used, such as #10-32 stainless-steel selflocking hardware (i.e., machine screws with washers and locking nuts), or self-drilling screws. Selfdrilling screws such as “TEK” screws do not require drilling of a pilot hole prior to installation. Do not use common self-threading sheet metal screws because they will loosen over time with vehicle vibrations.

The following mounting procedure is recommended:

1.

Determine the best radio-to-bracket position and angle by test-fitting the radio into the mounting bracket at the selected vehicle mounting location.

Slide the radio between the sides of the bracket and temporarily secure it to the bracket with several of the M5 socket-head screws from the bracket kit. Make positional adjustments as necessary.

2.

At the rear of the radio, verify sufficient clearance is available for cables and service access.

3.

If the mounting surface is not flat (such as the top of a transmission hump), constructing a suitable mounting wedge may be necessary. Attach the wedge to the surface using an approved attachment method. Never mount the bracket directly to a non-flat surface.

4.

On the mounting surface, mark the selected location for the bracket, and then remove the radio from the bracket.

5.

Clean and remove any foreign material from the mounting surface.

49

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

Figure 6-3: Mounting Bracket Kit 14015-0201-01

6.

Using the bracket as a template, and/or the dimensional information shown in Figure 6-4, mark and

drill at least four (4) mounting holes into the mounting surface as required per the type of hardware used.

Before drilling holes and/or installing mounting screws, verify these operations will not damage or interfere with any existing vehicle component (the fuel tank, a fuel line, the 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.

7.

Temporarily remove the bracket and deburr all of the newly drilled holes.

8.

If necessary, apply an approved paint or rust-inhibitor at the holes in the mounting surface.

9.

Set the bracket back into place.

10.

Install and tighten the mounting screws/hardware.

11.

Verify the bracket is firmly secured to the mounting surface. A secure mount prevents unreasonable vibration, which could damage the radio and/or cause its cable connections to loosen.

12.

If the rear of the radio is easily accessible when the radio is positioned in the selected position within the bracket, it is recommended that the radio be temporarily inserted into the bracket.

If access is difficult, do not mount the radio into the bracket at this time, because several cable connections must be made at the rear of the radio.

50

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

Figure 6-4: Mounting Bracket 14015-0201-02 Dimensions (Radio Not Shown)

6.1.2 Inserting the Radio into the Mounting Bracket

The radio should now be inserted into the mounting bracket according to this procedure:

1.

Slide the radio into the mounting bracket with the front of the radio facing in the correct direction

(usually towards the rear of the vehicle).

2.

Secure the radio to the bracket using the four (4) M5 x 10 mm stainless-steel socket-head screws, flat washers, and lock washers.

Each screw should have a lock washer against the screw head and a flat washer against the mounting

bracket. This hardware is included with the Mounting Bracket Kit as shown in Figure 6-3. The kit is

item 1 listed in Table 4-1 (page 27).

3.

Tighten all screws using a 3-millimeter hex key wrench until each lockwasher is fully compressed and the radio is firm and flush between the brackets.

4.

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

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.

51

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

6.2 RADIO WIRING AND CABLING

The radio’s DC Power Cable, CA-012365-001 (Table 4-1 item 2), has a 3-pin connector, a 20-foot red

wire (for the main power connection), a 20-foot white wire (for the switched power source connection), and a 4-foot black wire (for the ground connection). It is supplied with waterproof fuse holders, two

AGC-type fuses, and non-insulated ring terminals. The following installation procedures are recommended:

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) if it is not already 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 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.

Plan the routing of the 10-AWG red wire carefully, use an existing access hole in the vehicle’s firewall if possible. Alternately, drill a new hole approximately ½-inch in diameter and install a small rubber grommet (one supplied with the bracket kit) to protect the wire from chafing at 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.

All cables should have a service loop near each connector end. Do not bend the cables at severe angles near the connector end. Above all, 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.

52

Figure 6-5: Wiring Diagram for Front-Mount Installations

53

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

6.2.1 Radio Ground (Black Wire) Connection

Use the following procedure to provide a suitable ground connection for the radio:

1.

Connect the radio’s DC Power Cable to the radio by mating its 3-pin connector to the radio’s 3-pin 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.

2.

Determine a point in the vehicle to provide a permanent ground. This should be a ground point stud or an area of vehicle metal within approximately two (2) feet of the radio.

Proper grounding is crucial to proper radio performance. It is recommended making a continuity check between the battery return connection and chosen ground point.

This surface must have a solid and stable connection to vehicle ground. If not, add grounding strap(s) as necessary.

3.

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

4.

Use a through bolt with a nut and lock washer, or bolt to a ground point stud with a nut and lock washer. A self-locking nut can be used instead of a standard nut and lock washer. The stud or bolt must exit the nut with at least three (3) threads.

If necessary, 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 the cable to make this ground connection. Therefore, the hole diameter should be appropriate for the grounding screw/bolt size and type used to connect the ring terminal to the bare metal surface. This hardware is not supplied.

5.

Prepare the ground (black) wire:

Cut the black wire to the required length plus some additional length for a service loop.

Strip insulation back approximately ¼-inch.

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

6.

Attach the ring terminal and black wire to the bare metal surface or grounding stud.

The terminal must fit flush against the metal surface. No washer should be installed between the terminal and bare metal surface.

Use stainless-steel self-locking hardware (i.e., machine screws with washers and locking nuts) or other appropriate hardware to ensure a reliable terminal-to-metal contact. Tighten securely.

7.

Apply anti-oxidant compound or an approved paint over the terminal and bare metal.

All exposed bare metal and the ring terminal must be covered.

6.2.2 Main Power (Red Wire and Main Fuse Holder) Connection

1.

Continue installation of the radio’s DC Power Cable by routing its 20-foot 10-AWG red wire to the location of the vehicle’s battery (or its main DC bus bar or stud).

Remove interior panels, door kick panels, etc., and route the wire through existing channels in the vehicle body as necessary. Protect the wire from possible chafing where necessary.

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) if it is not already 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 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.

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.

Plan the routing of the 10-AWG red wire carefully, using an existing access hole in the vehicle’s firewall if possible. Alternately, drill a new hole approximately ½-inch in diameter and install a small rubber grommet (not supplied) to protect the wire from chafing at 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.

Remote-Mount Radio - In a typical vehicle remote-mount radio installation, as a time-saving measure, most of the Remote Control Cable between the remote-mount radio and the control head can be routed simultaneously with the red and white wires of the radio’s DC Power Cable.

Also, the Option Cable from the back of the radio can also be simultaneously routed with most of the length of these two wires and the Remote Control Cable. Detailed installation procedures

for the Remote Control Cable are included in Section 7.3 which begins on page 63.

2.

Cut the red wire to the required length for connection to the battery’s positive battery terminal (or the main DC bus bar or stud).

3.

Obtain the orange waterproof (HFB type) fuse holder included with the DC Power Cable.

Observe and follow the previously presented

WARNING!

4.

Prepare the red wire for splicing to the fuse holder: a.

Cut the red wire approximately three (3) to six (6) inches from the end. b.

Strip all three (3) wire ends back approximately ⅜-inch. c.

Place a fuse holder shell on each wire, and securely crimp a fuse holder terminal to each wire end.

Before crimping, verify fuse holder shells are oriented in the correct directions (i.e., with each large end towards the wire end).

55

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

5.

Label this fuse holder and red wire appropriately (e.g., “VHF Radio Main Power: 15-AMP FUSE”).

Do not install a fuse into the fuse holder at this time.

6.

Crimp a ring terminal to the short red wire.

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

7.

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

6.2.3 Ignition Sense (White Wire) Connection

Unlike some remote-mount mobile radio installations, the XG-25M radio’s remote-mount control head installation does not require its own DC power cable and fuse (i.e., separate from the radio). The control head receives DC operating power from the radio via the Remote

Control Cable.

A review of the Ignition Sense Location and Considerations information presented in Section 4.4.3 (page

22) 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.

6.2.3.1 Radio and Control Head Turn On and Off with Vehicle’s Ignition

Switch/Key

With this wiring configuration, the radio and control head automatically turn on and off with the vehicle’s ignition switch/key. The white wire 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 radio’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

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 radio’s DC Power Cable from the back of the radio to the area near this connection point. Protect the wire from possible chafing as necessary.

56

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

3.

Obtain the other waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holder included with the radio’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 avoids wire chafing.

6.2.3.2 Radio Turns On and Off with a Manual Switch

With this wiring configuration, the radio (and its control head) is manually turned on and off via an on/off switch mounted separately from the 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 control head’s on/off/volume control must be left in the on position for automatic power-up/down to function properly.

1.

Route the white wire of the radio’s DC Power Cable from the back of the radio 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.

Using the other waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holder, included with the radio’s DC Power Cable, 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 the fuse holder to the location of a 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 avoids wire chafing.

12.

Label this power switch accordingly. For example: “

RADIO ON/OFF

.”

57

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

6.2.3.3 Radio Is “Hot Wired”

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

Follow the procedure presented in Section 6.2.3.1, 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.

58

7 REMOTE-MOUNT RADIO INSTALLATION

Installing a Remote-Mount mobile radio consists of the following:

• Installing the remote mount mobile radio with a control head, and their brackets;

• Installing wiring and cabling

• Installing speaker bracket and speaker;

• Installing mic and mic clip.

NOTE

Equipment should be mounted only after the authorized customer representative has approved

the installation plan. Figure 7-1 shows a basic process flow for installing the remote-mount

mobile equipment.

Figure 7-1: Remote-Mount Installation Process

59

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

7.1 MOUNTING THE REMOTE-MOUNT RADIO

Procedures in this section are only for a remote-mount radio installation. For Front mount radio

installation, refer to Section 6.

7.1.1 Application of the Remote-Control Conversion Kit

Before beginning remote-mount installation, the control head must be removed from the radio and

reconfigured using the CH-25 Remote-Control Conversion Kit, 14015-0203-28 (see Table 4-2).

Instructions for reconfiguring the control head are included in the kit’s

Product Manual

, publication number 14221-1510-4450.

It is critical that the correct minimum version of firmware is loaded into the front-mount

XG-25M mobile radio prior to starting the physical conversion/separation process. A remotemount XG-25M will not recognize the remote-control CH-25 head and the two will be completely non-functional with an older firmware version. Refer to

Product Manual publication number 14221-1510-4450 for complete details. The manual is included with CH-25

Remote-Control Conversion Kit DM-ZN9Z.

The manual includes procedures for removing the control head from the existing front-mount radio, attaching the radio’s remote interface to the front of the radio thus converting it to a remote-mount radio, and attaching the control head’s remote interface to the back of the control head.

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 radio and its mounting 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 remote-mount mobile radio 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 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 (the fuel tank, a fuel line, the 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.

60

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

Ensure all equipment is protected from possible damage.

• Position the equipment (especially control heads) to avoid direct impact from water and hose-down, snow, dust, smoke, gases, road debris, oils, chemicals and corrosive agents.

• If installing equipment behind a door or cover in a protective enclosure, always ensure there is adequate airflow and cooling.

• Use of splash guards, shields, or covers, to protect against direct impacts.

The equipment must always be secured to the vehicle using sheet metal screws or bolts and original mounting hardware provided with the installation kit. No other direct mounting to the radio or control head enclosure should be made, as this could damage internal components.

When mounting radio equipment in the vehicle trunk always be aware of the position of the vehicle’s gas tank. Ensure the radio’s mounting screws do not penetrate the vehicle‘s gas tank.

To mount equipment, refer to the following sections.

7.1.2 Installing the Remote-Mount Radio

After completing the procedures in

Product Manual

14221-1510-4450, install the radio mounting bracket

as described in Section 6.1.1 on page 48. Then install the remote-mount radio into its mounting bracket

by following the procedure in Section 6.1.2 on page 51.

Also connect/re-connect the 3-pin connector of the DC Power Cable to the 3-pin power connector on the

rear of the radio. Instructions for installing the power cable are provided in Section 6.2, starting on page

52.

7.2 CONTROL HEAD MECHANICAL INSTALLATION

After the CH-25 Remote-Control Conversion Kit is applied and the radio is installed into its mounting bracket, continue by installing the control head, as described in the following subsections:

7.2.1 Selecting the Mounting Location

NOTE

Secure mounting of the radio, control head, and accessories is an important safety consideration. If the equipment is not securely mounted, the components could become a projectile during a vehicle accident or an emergency stop.

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.

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

convenience related information presented in Section 4.4 on page 20. 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 connector of the Remote Control Cable’s that mates to the connector on the rear panel of the head. The control head can be mounted in, under, or on top of a mounting surface

(typically the vehicle’s dash) as space permits.

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. It must not vibrate when the vehicle is in motion and it must remain stable during normal operations by a radio

61

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D operator (i.e., button presses, knob rotation, excessive tugs on the mic cord, etc.). If the control head is mounted to a plastic or similar-type dash panel, either fender washers or a field-fabricated metal backing plate should be utilized on the opposite side of the panel from the bracket.

7.2.2 Installing the Mounting Bracket and Control Head

Follow this procedure to mechanically install the control head’s mounting bracket and attach the head to it:

1.

Obtain the mounting bracket from the conversion kit. The bracket is illustrated in Table 4-2 on page

28.

The control head can be attached above its mounting surface, like on the top of a dash panel. In

that case, the bracket is located below the head, as shown in Figure 7-2.

Alternately, the head can be attached below its mounting surface, such as underneath a dash panel. In that case, the bracket is located above the head.

Figure 7-2: Control Head Mounting Bracket (shown positioned below head)

Before drilling holes and/or installing mounting screws, verify these operations will not damage or interfere with any existing vehicle component (the fuel tank, a fuel line, the 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.

1.

Using the mounting bracket as a template, mark and drill mounting holes into the mounting surface as required. When positioning the bracket, note that the chamfered edge-slots on each end of the bracket must face in the same direction as the control head’s display will need to face. In a typical vehicle installation, this is towards the rear of the vehicle.

62

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

2.

If necessary, deburr the newly drilled holes.

3.

Set the bracket back on the mounting surface, positioning it so its chamfered edge-slots are facing in the same direction as the head’s display will need to face.

4.

Install and tighten the mounting screws. 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. Bracket attachment must survive all expected radio operator actions such as hard button-press actions and excessive tugs on the mic cord.

6.

Install the control head into the bracket by sliding the short pegs protruding from the left and right sides of the head into the chamfered edge-slots on each end of the bracket.

7.

At each end of the bracket, start a socket-head cap (Allen) head screw with a flat washer by inserting the screw (with washer) through the arched 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. Start both screws, with one washer each. Turn each screw in clockwise direction to start it into the threaded hole.

8.

Tilt the head in the bracket to the required angle for best viewing by the operator at his/her normal position, and then fully tighten both screws using a 4-millimeter hex key (Allen) wrench.

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

7.3 INSTALLING THE REMOTE CONTROL CABLE

Follow this procedure to install the Remote Control Cable:

1.

Obtain Remote Control Cable 14015-0203-31. The cable is included in CH-25 Remote-Control

Conversion Kit DM-ZN9Z. It is 30 feet (9.1 meters) long.

2.

Connect one of the Remote Control Cable’s 44-pin connector to the 44-pin connector on the front of the radio. Before connecting either connector, note the following:

As illustrated in Figure 7-3, the cable of the Remote Control Cable exits each D-shaped connector of

the cable in opposite directions with respect to the D shape of each connector. At one connector, it exits to the right and at the other connector, it exits to the left (assuming the D-shapes are orientated in the same direction as shown in the figure). Also, from an electrical stand-point, both connectors have identical pin-outs.

As shown in Figure 7-4 on page 64, this allows the Remote Control Cable to be reversed

(radio<>head) to reverse the left/right orientation of the cable in relation to the left/right sides of the radio and head. This may be advantageous for some installations where, for example, cable clearances

63

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D are tight on one side of the radio and/or head, or cable routing and service loop routing benefits from one direction over another.

Be sure to leave a service loop in the cable so when radio removal is necessary, movement will not be unnecessarily limited.

Figure 7-3: D-Shaped Connectors of Remote Control Cable

Always use a flat-blade screwdriver with a ¼-inch tip to tighten and loosen the jackscrews of these two connectors.

Do not exceed 6.0 inch-pounds of torque (6.9 kgf-cm) when tightening the jackscrews.

1.

Route the cable through the vehicle’s interior to near the location of the control head. Remove interior panels, door kick panels, etc., and route the cable through existing channels in the vehicle body as necessary.

2.

Connect the other 44-pin connector of the Remote Control Cable to the 44-pin connector on the rear panel of the control head. Tighten the jackscrews securely, but do not over-tighten them. Be sure to leave a service loop in the cable so when control head removal is necessary, movement will not be unnecessarily limited.

3.

Tie and stow all excess cable length so it will be out of casual contact with vehicle occupants. Be sure to protect it from wire chafe where necessary.

4.

Re-install all previously removed interior panels, door kick panels, etc.

8 OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES

8.1 EXTERNAL SPEAKER INSTALLATION (OPTIONAL)

The XG-25M mobile radio has an internal (built-in) speaker in the front panel of the control head. This speaker’s audio output power level is rated at 3 watts maximum. It is driven by an audio amplifier located inside the radio.

The radio has another internal speaker audio amplifier. This amplifier can drive an optionally-installed external speaker at up to 15 watts. When the external speaker is on/enabled, the radio’s internal speaker remains off/disabled (muted).

If an external speaker is required, install it according to the below procedure. Total available cable length for an external speaker is approximately 10 feet (308 centimeters). Therefore, to include service loops in these cables, the speaker must be mounted within approximately 9.5 feet (290 centimeters) of the radio.

This requirement assumes standard cabling is used.

1.

Obtain Speaker LS102824V10. This speaker is rated for audio levels up to 20-watts.

2.

Obtain Option Cable 14002-0174-08.

3.

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

4.

Install the speaker using the hardware and mounting bracket supplied with it. Route the speaker cable to the rear of the radio.

5.

Connect the Option Cable to the DB-44 connector on the rear of the radio. Tighten the cable’s two (2)

jackscrews securely. See Section 9.1 for additional information on this cable.

6.

Mate the Option Cable’s 2-pin connector (identified P2) to the 2-pin connector on the end of the speaker cable. A mild click will be sensed to confirm proper mating.

7.

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

To support the external speaker, the radio must have the

EXT SPKR

(External Speaker) function programmed to a radio button and/or menu. With this programming, the external speaker can be toggled on and off by pressing the button programmed with this function, or by selecting the function on a menu. When the external speaker is on, the radio’s internal speaker remains off/disabled.

8.2 MICROPHONE ATTACHMENT

The XG-25M radio’s microphone has a coiled cord and a 12-pin connector. The connector mates with the mic connector on the front panel of the control head.

A microphone hanger is included with each microphone. The radio can be configured to provide a monitor function when the microphone is inserted into the hanger.

66

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

Use the following procedure to connect the mic to the control head and install the mic hanger:

1.

Position the mic’s connector just in front of the radio’s mic connector so it can engage straight into the mic connector. The small notch on the end of the mic’s connector must be positioned straight up so it engages with the key in the connector of the radio.

2.

Mate the two connectors by pressing them fully together. A click should be sensed when the connectors latch together.

3.

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

4.

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. The microphones have integrated hookswitches. Therefore, the microphone clip does not need to be grounded.

5.

Clip the microphone to the clip.

Harris mobile radio microphones and Harris mic hangers are mechanically optimized to coexist with each other. The mic hanger’s part number is 344A4678P1. The use of a third-party mic hanger with a Harris microphone could potentially result in damage to the microphone and/or inhibit normal radio operation.

8.3 GPS NMEA-FORMATTED DATA CONNECTION

To obtain GPS NMEA-formatted serial data from the radio, the radio must be equipped with the GPS receiver option, and Option Cable 14002-0174-08 is required. For radios equipped with a GPS receiver, follow this procedure to complete the GPS NMEA-formatted serial data connections:

1.

Obtain Option Cable 14002-0174-08. Each “leg” of this cable is approximately 65 inches long (166 centimeters).

2.

Connect the cable’s 44-pin D-subminiature (DB-44) male connector to the DB-44 female connector on the rear panel of the radio. Tighten the two jackscrews with a small flathead screwdriver. Do not over-tighten.

3.

Connect the cable’s DB-9 female connector identified as P5 to the computer’s serial port DB-9 male connector—either directly or extended via cable CA-013671-020 (a 20-foot-long cable); see Section

9.2. Tighten the screws firmly, and then route the cabling as required. If the computer is not equipped

with a DB-9 serial port connector, the use of a suitable adapter is required, such as USB-to-RS-232

Adapter Cable CN24741-0001.

4.

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

If the Option Cable 14002-0174-08 is not available, a 3-wire serial cable can be fieldfabricated. On the radio end, this cable must interface to the three GPS-related signals of the

radio’s 44-pin I/O Cable connector (pins 7, 31, and 32). See 9.1 for additional information.

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

67

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

8.4 MOBILE DATA CONNECTION

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

Terminal (MDT) or similar software, follow this procedure to connect the computer to the radio:

1.

Obtain Option Cable 14002-0174-08. Each “leg” of this cable is approximately 65 inches long (166 centimeters).

To use a SLIP/PPP connection, Option Cable 14002-0174-08 Rev. A (or later) is required.

Earlier cables did not have the CTS and RTS interconnections to connector P6 and CTS/RTS is needed for a SLIP/PPP connection.

2.

Connect the cable’s 44-pin D-subminiature (DB-44) male connector to the DB-44 female connector on the rear panel of the radio. Tighten the two jackscrews with a small flathead screwdriver. Do not over-tighten.

3.

Route the “leg” of this cable that has the two DB connectors (i.e., DB-25 connector P4 and DB-9 connector P6) to the area near the serial port of the MDT computer. Protect the cable from possible chafing and tie-and-stow it as necessary.

If the cable’s “leg” length is not long enough to reach the computer, obtain cable CA-013671-

020 (or equivalent) and use it to extend the connection from the DB-9 connector P6. Cable

CA-013671-020 is a 20-foot-long standard DB-9 serial data cable.

4.

Connect the female DB-9 connector (P6) to the computer. If the computer is not equipped with a

DB-9 serial port connector, use a suitable adapter, such as USB-to-RS-232 Adapter Cable

CN24741-0001.

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 86.

68

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

9 OPTIONAL CABLES

9.1 OPTION CABLE 14002-0174-08

Option Cable 14002-0174-08 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 interfaces

provided by the radio. The cable is shown in Figure 9-1. The cable’s 44-pin D-subminiature connector

that mates with the connector on the rear of the radio is identified P1.

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 before connecting the two units and before making a positive (+) power connection to either unit. Otherwise, fuse(s) inside the radio may fail (open) and/or other equipment damage could occur.

Connector P2 is the cable’s 2-pin connector that provides connections for an optional speaker. Connection is not required if only the radio’s internal speaker will be used.

Connector P3, the cable’s 6-pin connector, is a connector for basic accessories (e.g., hookswitch, etc.).

Connector P4, the cable’s D-subminiature 25-pin connector, provides audio and data connections for optional equipment.

Connector P5, a D-subminiature 9-pin connector, provides NMEA-formatted GPS serial data connections for the external computer processing the NMEA-formatted GPS data received by the radio’s internal GPS

receiver. See Section 8.3 on page 67 for additional information. This is serial port A of the radio.

Connector P6 provides a serial data interface used for radio programming. Like P5, this is a

D-subminiature 9-pin connector. This is serial port B of the radio.

70

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

described in Section 5 of this manual.

74

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

10.2 INITIAL POWER-UP TEST

1.

At the radio’s main waterproof (HFB-type) fuse holder installed near the vehicle battery, insert the

15-amp fuse that was included with the radio’s DC Power Cable.

2.

Install the Ignition Sense 3-amp AGC-type fuse, if not already installed.

3.

Tie and stow all fuse holders at this location to prevent excess vibration/movement.

4.

Carefully reconnect the vehicle’s battery ground cable.

5.

If not already, temporarily connect the mobile antenna cable from the vehicle-mounted mobile antenna to the female TNC RF connector on the rear panel of the radio.

This is a temporary connection until test procedures in Section 10.3 are complete.

6.

If the radio 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.

7.

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.

8.

If the radio is not already powered up, do so by rotating its on/off/volume control clockwise out of the detent position.

9.

Verify the radio has powered-up by observing its display.

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

• After a short boot-up sequence, the radio displays login information and/or a talk group.

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

• If an error is displayed, recheck all cable connections, verify all fuses are properly installed, and

verify battery power on the load side of the fuses, etc. If problems persist, contact the Technical

Assistance Center (see page 86).

• Consult the Operator’s Manual for operational information.

Refer to Section 10.3 for performance test information.

75

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

10.3 PERFORMANCE TESTS

This section includes procedures to verify the performance of the installation’s mobile antenna system.

There are two (2) procedures in this section:

• Testing by Transmitting into a Dummy Load (a 50-Ohm RF Terminator)

• Testing by Transmitting into the Mobile Antenna

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!

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

± 10%. The current capacity of the power source must be greater than 15 amps. 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.

Observe the previous WARNING!

If a vehicle equipped with this radio requires jump-starting, the radio installation’s main fuse should be removed from the holder prior to jump-starting. Doing so will prevent damage to the radio system.

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

Performance Testing in this section be construed as the exact power level output from the radio, as the level is set and more accurately measured in the factory. The levels obtained in these test procedures determine a successful installation only.

10.4 RF POWER TESTS

10.4.1 Transmitting into a 50-Ohm Dummy Load

1.

Turn off the radio.

2.

Using the Type N male to TNC male RF coaxial jumper cable, connect the radio’s antenna connector

to the wattmeter’s input connector. Refer to Figure 10-1 as necessary.

3.

Connect the 50-ohm dummy load to the wattmeter’s output connector, in place of the antenna cable from the vehicle-mounted antenna.

4.

Turn on the radio and set it to the required operating mode (based upon available radio programming and test equipment).

76

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

5.

Set the radio to a test conventional channel that is approximately in the middle frequency range of the radio installation’s antenna element.

6.

Position the wattmeter’s element to measure forward RF output power. Rotate it if necessary. The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the radio and towards the dummy load for forward power measurements.

7.

Set the wattmeter to measure average RF power.

It is recommended that a test talk group/channel be allocated for this testing. This same group should be used during the antenna test procedure which is presented in the subsequent section.

Figure 10-1

:

Wattmeter Connections for Antenna System Tests

8.

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

9.

Verify the measured transmit output power is within the respective range listed in Table 10-2. The

respective power setting listed in this table assumes the radio is currently configured at the maximum transmit power level.

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

The 700/800 MHz XG-25M radio is aligned for a maximum transmit power of 35 watts across the entire 700/800 MHz frequency band. However, for FCC licensed systems, verify the radio’s 700 MHz channels are limited to 30 Watts or per license requirements via the radio’s personality programming.

77

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

The UHF XG-25M radio is aligned for a maximum transmit power of 50 watts across its entire

378 - 470 MHz operating band. However, for equipment operating in accordance with FCC

47CFR80 rules (i.e., Maritime Services), it is the responsibility of the licensee to ensure the radio is installed and aligned per license requirements.

near the end of this manual.

If the wattmeter reading is outside that range, verify the radio’s power supply 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 it and repeat this procedure. If

problems persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see page 86).

10.4.2 Transmitting into the Mobile Antenna

1.

Turn off the radio.

2.

Connect the antenna cable from the vehicle-mounted antenna to the wattmeter as shown in Figure

10-1.

3.

Turn on the radio and set it to the required operating mode (based upon available radio programming and test equipment).

4.

Set the radio to a test conventional channel that is approximately in the middle frequency range of the radio installation’s antenna element.

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 XG-25M radio’s

Product Safety Manual.

5.

Position the wattmeter’s element to measure forward RF output power. Rotate it if necessary. The arrow on the face of the element must point away from the radio and towards the antenna for forward power measurements.

6.

Set the wattmeter to measure average RF power.

78

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

7.

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

8.

Verify the measured transmit output power is within the respective range listed in Table 10-2. The

respective power setting listed in this table assumes the radio is currently configured at the maximum transmit power level.

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

9.

If the wattmeter reading is within the range, record the level in the appropriate space on the

Installation Checklist

near the end of this manual.

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

If the installation employs a ¼-wave unity-gain antenna, observe the following

NOTE

. If these checks/corrections fail 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 86).

If the radio installation employs a ¼-wave unity-gain antenna (part number AN-225006-001), the driven element (i.e., whip) of the antenna must be trimmed to the proper length in order to minimize antenna system VSWR. Refer to the instructions included with the antenna for trimming instructions.

10.

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 to the radio to measure reverse power.

11.

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

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

12.

For a good mobile radio installation, an antenna system VSWR of between 1.2:1 and 1.5:1 is reasonable. If the utilized wattmeter/power-meter cannot directly measure and display VSWR, use the following formula to calculate the reverse power at a 1.5:1 VSWR level:

P reflected (Watts)

= P forward (Watts)

* 0.04

, where P forward (Watts)

is the measured forward power.

For example: For a P forward

of 30 Watts, P reflected

= 30 * 0.04 = 1.2 Watts. See Table 10-3 for more

examples.

13.

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

Installation Checklist on page 87, and then advance to the next step in this procedure.

Notes for Troubleshooting Bad VSWR/Reverse Power Readings:

 Make sure the installed antenna element is consistent with the specified frequency range of the radio by checking the antenna element’s datasheet VSWR spec, etc.

 Verify the NMO antenna base is properly installed and tight on the NMO antenna mount.

 Verify the antenna element is properly installed and tight on the NMO antenna base. Some elements use a small set screw in the base to secure the element to the base.

 Ensure field-dressed coax cables are properly crimped, including the coax center conductor to the connector pin, and the coax shield to the connector’s body.

 At the radio’s antenna port connector, verify the antenna coax cable’s RF connector is tightened in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines.

 Expect more losses depending on the cable length and RF frequency.

 Expect more reflected power, if measurement is made inside a metallic structure.

 Consider overall measurement accuracy/errors.

 Recheck all antenna connections, and measure the reverse power again. For example: If the installation employs a ¼-wave unity-gain antenna, observe the

NOTE

that immediately

follows step 9. If these checks/corrections fail to produce a reading within the range, replace

80

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D 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.

 It is understandable that the user may not have a full control over the test environment. If this is the case, and after the above recheck the readings are still outside the expected range, use the following alternative method to ensure the installation is done correctly. a.

Measure the output RF power of the radio directly from the radio. b.

Connect the antenna cable to the radio. c.

Remove the radio installation’s antenna element from the mount (base) and using a suitable NMO adapter so the antenna mount can be connected to the wattmeter/power meter. d.

Measure the RF power at the antenna mount. e.

Use the cable loss data in Table 10-4 to calculate the approximate cable losses. After all

losses are accounted for, measurements should be within ±1 dB of the original output RF power measurement.

If problems persist, contact the Technical Assistance Center (see page 86).

Permanently connect the cable from the vehicle-mounted antenna to the radio’s antenna cable by mating the two TNC connectors together. Use two pairs of soft-jaw pliers to gently tighten this connection. Do not over tighten and do not twist either cable.

16.

Make several test calls on the radio system to verify operation of the mobile radio. Before making the calls, select other talk groups or conventional channels, as required to verify operation.

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

81

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

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.

Testing is complete. The radio is now ready for normal communications.

82

14221-1510-4440, Rev. D

10.5 POST INSTALLATION INSPECTION
