Before installing a unit, verify that the vehicle’s battery voltage is at least 12.5 V. If the voltage is lower than 12.5 V, the
battery’s health may need to be verified by a professional to determine if the battery needs to be replaced. While the 5000
series units go into a low power mode, the units still draw an average of 16 mA. Also, having two or more devices plugged
into the OBD-II port and/or the auxiliary port results in additional current draw from the battery.
Prior to installing the Networkfleet device, please start the vehicle and note any indicator lights showing on the vehicle
console which show any vehicle issues, should they be present.

17
Sensor
The 5500 and 5200 devices include a sensor port for monitoring various voltage events occurring within the vehicle such
as: PTO engagement/disengagement, secondary engine on/off, and door open/close.
Please review prior to performing sensor installation:
•
Installer shall use only a digital multi-meter to verify that line Voltage is within the product tolerances.
•
Installer shall use 24 gauge (minimum) wires for installation.
•
Electrical connectors must be used when attaching sensor wires.
•
Voltage testing should always be performed with a vehicle door open to avoid retained accessory power issues.
The 5500/5200 comes equipped with two sensor inputs. Each sensor will be associated with a pair of input wires. One pair
of wires (Purple, Black) will be associated with Sensor 1 and the other pair of wires (Blue, Black) will be associated with
Sensor 2.
Use the Black wire of each pair to make a secure vehicle ground connection. Then, connect the other wire (Blue or Purple)
of each pair to the desired signal to be monitored.
If only one wire pair (sensor input) is to be used, the other pair must be twisted together and insulated via heat shrink or
some other secure means to prevent contact with any vehicle structures and to ensure it does not interfere with any moving
parts in the vehicle.
The sensor wires can be extended with the same gauge wire if needed.
The signal to be monitored should have two voltage states: One where there is no voltage
(i.e. zero volts when referenced to ground) and another that falls in the range +5 to +24 or -5 to -24 volts. The signal being
monitored should be capable of supplying 3 mA when a voltage is present. It is important that the voltage signal be tested
to ensure it is continuously providing the necessary voltage and current when in the “on” or “active” position.
The following table shows how the signals are interpreted.
Wire A (Black)
Ground or reference for wire B
Wire B (Blue or Purple)
Off (-3V < x < +3V)
On (-24V < x < -5V or +5V < x < +24V)
Undefined (-5V < x < -3V or +3V < x < +5V)
On a system where the PTO and the Sensor use the same battery:
•
Connect the Black Sensor Wire to Battery, which will be the reference.
•
Connect the Purple or Blue Wire to the PTO switch.
On a system where the PTO and the Sensor use different batteries:
•
Connect the Black Sensor Wire to Battery, which will be the reference.
•
Connect the Purple or Blue Wire to the PTO switch.

23
Verifying Successful Installation/LED Behavior
To verify successful installation, call Customer Care at 866.227.7323 and select Option 5.
LED Behavior for Sensors: When the Sensor Input Harness is detected by the unit, all LEDs should be turned on solid for
10 seconds. When you engage Sensor 1 (if installed), the yellow LED shall blink rapidly (1/4 second) every time a transition
is detected (on to off/off to on). When you engage Sensor 2 (if installed), the green LED shall blink rapidly (1/4 second)
every time a transition is detected (on to off/off to on). The sensor installation verification will take
one minute in total. Afterwards, all LEDs should be turned on for 10 seconds and then normal
LED behavior will resume.
To ensure activation is complete, the vehicle must be idled or driven for at least 15 minutes to reach normal operating
mode.
Note: If voltage does not meet the standards detailed in this guide, the installation may require the use of a relay switch to
properly connect the sensor.
LED Behavior for Garmin: When the Garmin or window-mount GPS antenna is connected to the serial port, all LEDs
should be turned on solid for 10 seconds. Afterwards, the red LED shall double blink every two seconds. The installation
verification will take one minute in total, then all LEDs should be turned on for 10 seconds. Thereafter, then normal LED
behavior will resume.
Please note that the blinking pattern shows successful connection with the device, but it does not verify successful

A:
I need to do a unit transfer. Can I re-use the window-mount GPS antenna? How do I remove it from the glass?
Yes, however the adhesive on the antenna is one-time use only and will not function properly after it is removed.
Re-installation kits are available - contact Customer Care at 866.227.7323 for more information.
Instructions for Window-Mount GPS Antenna Removal
Because of the strength of the antenna adhesive, use a razor or Goo Gone (a household solvent) for removal.

To remove the antenna with a razor, peel a small section of the antenna off of the glass and slide the razor
between the glass and the antenna.
Using a sawing motion, carefully remove the antenna from the glass and discard.
