SAFETY MESSAGE TO INSTALLERS OF
UNITROL SYSTEMS
WARNING
•
Connect all power (not ignition) and ground wires
directly to battery. Implementing an in-line switch
will cause all accessory outputs to energize
momentarily. Devices such as gunlocks, trunk release
etc. will be activated upon power being provided by
such a switch.
•
Sound output will be severely reduced if any objects
are in front of this speaker. If maximum sound output
is required for your application, you should ensure
that the front of the speaker is clear of any obstruction.
•
Install the speaker(s) in a location that provides
maximum signaling effectiveness and minimizes the
sound reaching the vehicle’s occupants.
1.
DO NOT install equipment or route wiring or cord in
the deployment path of an air bag.
•
Locate the siren so the vehicle controls can be
operated safely.
•
In order for this electronic siren to function properly,
the ground connection must be made to the
NEGATIVE battery terminal.
•
When drilling into a vehicle structure, be sure that
both sides of the surface are clear of anything that
could be damaged.
•
If wiring is shorted to vehicle frame, high current
conductors can cause hazardous sparks resulting in
electrical fires or flying molten metal.
The lives of people depend on your safe installation and
servicing of UNITROL products. It is important to read
and follow all instructions shipped with the products. In
addition, listed below are some other important safety
instructions and precautions you should follow:
Before Installation
Qualifications
•
To properly install an electronic siren you must have a
good understanding of automotive electrical
procedures and systems, along with proficiency in the
installation and service of safety warning equipment.
Sound Hazards
•
•
Your hearing and the hearing of others, in or close to
your emergency vehicle, could be damaged by loud
sounds. This can occur from short exposures to
moderately loud sounds. For hearing conservation
guidance, refer to federal, state, or local
recommendations. OSHA Standard 1910.95 offers
guidance on “Permissible Noise Exposure.”
All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds,
which may, in certain situations, cause permanent
hearing loss. You should minimize your exposure
times and wear suitable hearing protection.
During Installation
•
•
•
•
DO NOT connect this system to the vehicle battery
until ALL other electrical connections are made,
mounting of all components is complete, and you have
verified that no shorts exist.
After Installation
Be sure the siren amplifier and speaker(s) in your
installation have compatible wattage ratings.
Wire size range from 10 ga (largest) to 20 ga.
(smallest). Do not use wire that is smaller than any
vehicle wire being cut apart. Always use a size that
can safely carry the load to be operated.
•
After installation, test the electronic siren and speaker
system to ensure that it is operating properly.
•
Test all vehicle functions, including horn operation
and vehicle light systems, to ensure proper operation.
•
After testing is complete, provide a copy of these
instructions to the instructional staff and all operating
personnel.
•
If Slide Switch outputs may possibly exceed 20
amps per position, utilize a circuit breaker or relay on
EACH of the Slide Switch outputs (Terminal 15, 16
and 17)
File these instructions in a safe place and refer to
them when maintaining and/or reinstalling the
product.
Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions
may result in property damage, serious injury, or death to
you or others.

SECTION IV
INSTALLATION
SIREN / P.A. CONNECTIONS
ALARM
Applying a ground (-) to the ALARM terminal triggers the
siren to a distinctive 2KHz sound. This function may be used
as a burglar alarm or a high-temperature alarm for K-9 carriers.
A motion-detector or switches at the trunk, doors, etc. may be
used for burglar alarms. A temperature switch (Part # UTAS)
is available at an extra cost for a temperature alarm. A key
switch or concealed On/Off switch must be installed in-line
with the ALARM terminal.
PANEL LIGHTING
For satisfactory lighting, it is recommended that the panel
lights (terminal #1) be connected to the vehicle light circuit
as shown.
SIREN DEACTIVATION
The park kill feature of the Touchmaster Delta ™ uses the
Neutral Safety Switch to stop all siren sounds except P.A.,
Alarm, and Radio Rebroadcast. The Neutral Safety Switch
must be hooked up to the Park Kill input using Terminal
#14. A Park Kill Module must be installed as an interface
between the vehicle and the Touchmaster Delta™.
(The Park Kill Module is available at an extra cost). The
Park Kill Module will protect both the vehicle and the
Touchmaster Delta™ from damage caused by transient
voltages. See Digital Circuitry Warning.
FOOTSWITCH
A foot switch or any manual switch may be used in lieu of, or
in addition to, the horn ring. If the switch is used alone,
connect one switch terminal to ground (-), and connect the
other terminal to the RNG terminal. If a switch is used in
conjunction with the horn ring connections, connect one
terminal to RNG, and the other to (-) or (+) to match the horn
ring polarity.
NOTE: The only wire connected to Terminal #14 should
be the GRAY wire of the UPKM-2. When testing this
feature, put the emergency brake on and verify siren
sounds in Reverse and Drive and that there is no sound in
Park or Neutral.
HORN RING CONNECTIONS
Optional – Cut the vehicle horn circuit and connect the leads to
the HRN and RNG terminals on the back of the Touchmaster

WARNING LIGHT CONNECTIONS
Terminals #15, 16 and 17 are identified by numbers indicating positions of the slide-bar switch that make terminals
functional. All terminals emit + 12V. The UNITROL slide switch is a progressive switch in that it allows only 20
amperes per position, with a total capacity of 60 amperes. If your lighting device requires more current than the slide
switch is rated for you MUST use an external relay, such as a solenoid, to provide higher current to the device. Use
the slide switch to activate the relay. The slide switch will activate the siren when moved to position 3 if the red
power wire, labeled SIREN also has power applied and the MODE switch is in a siren position (WAIL or YELP).

SECTION VI
SAFETY MESSAGE TO OPERATORS OF
UNITROL SYSTEMS
WARNING
The lives of people depend on your safe operation of Unitrol
products. It is important to read and follow all instructions
shipped with the products. In addition, listed below are some
other important safety instructions and precautions you should
follow:
Although your warning system is operating properly, it
may not alert everyone. People may not hear, see or heed
your warning signal. You must recognize this fact and
continue driving cautiously.
Situations may occur which obstruct your warning signal
when natural or man-made objects are between your
vehicle and others, such as when you raise you hood or
trunk lid. If these situations occur, be especially careful.
The control head’s LED display simulates the light
pattern(s) being executed by the warning systems. The
display is intended ONLY as a guide and NOT as an
indication of proper warning system. Before using the
warning system, its operation should be observed from
outside the vehicle.
Qualification
To properly use a light system you must have a good
understanding of general vehicle operation, a high
proficiency in the use of safety warning equipment and
thorough knowledge of State and Federal Uniform Traffic
Codes.
Sound Hazards
Your hearing and the hearing of others in or close to your
emergency vehicle could be damaged by loud sounds.
This can occur from short exposures to moderately loud
sounds. For hearing conservation guidance, refer to
Federal, State or local recommendations. OSHA Standard
1910.95 offers guidance on “Permissible Noise Exposure”.
Driving Limitations
All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds, which
may, in certain situations, cause permanent hearing loss.
You should minimize your exposure times and wear
suitable hearing protection.
At the start of your shift, you should ensure that the
warning system is securely attached to the vehicle and
operating properly.
If the unique combination of emergency vehicle equipment
installed in your vehicle has resulted in the light/siren
controls being installed in a position that does not allow
you to operate them by touch only, OPERATE
CONTROLS ONLY WHILE YOUR VEHICLE IS
STOPPED.
If driving conditions require your full attention, you should
avoid operating the light/siren controls while the vehicle is
in motion.
Sound Limitations
Maximum sound output will be severely reduced if any
objects are in front of the speaker. If your installation has
obstructions in front of the speaker, drive even more
cautiously. Frequently inspect the speaker to ensure that it
is clear of any obstruction, such as mud or snow, which
will reduce maximum sound output.
Continuing Education
Signaling Limitations
Be aware that the use of your visual and audible signaling
devices does not give you the right to force your way through
traffic. Your emergency lights, siren and actions are
REQUESTING the right-of-way.
File these instructions in a safe place and refer to them
periodically. Give a copy of these instructions to new
recruits and trainees.
Failure to follow these safety precautions may result in
property damage, serious injury, or death to you, to passengers
or to others.
