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. 5 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 MODEL IDENTIFICATION • • • UTMD UTMD-MB UTMD-AL Contain the Siren only Contains the Siren, Mounting Bracket and Microphone Same as UTMD-AL with push buttons configured for latching. DIGITAL CIRCUITRY WARNING Some auto manufacturers have converted to Digital Park/Neutral reference signal. Refer to Federal Signal Corporation Service Bulletin No 9.; Dated 11/03/04. On these vehicles, the Park/Neutral position can only be monitored with a 5-volt reference signal. Automobile manufacturers state that a 12 Volt or ground signal will result in damage to the vehicle starting system. If installation of a UPKM-1 is to be utilized, please check with Unitrol regarding compatibility issues. Federal Signal / Unitrol UPKM-2 is compliant with both digital and 12-volt systems. 6 TOP RELAY BOARD 7 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 V FACEPLATE OPERATION / CONFIGURATION SW1 SW2 SW3 SW4 SW5 SW6 TouchMaster Delta auxiliary push button switches Accessory switch connections provide a 12-volt output. Hook the power connection of the auxiliary device to the terminal that corresponds to the switch output terminal that operator would like to activate. (See illustration on next page). Switches 1,5 and 6 can be configured as a momentary or latching switch with a 12-volt output. Switch 6 can be set for either ignition or battery controlled. (See Top Relay Board illustration for jumper configuration) Connect the red 12ga. wire (marked ACCESS) to battery via a circuit breaker. This wire supplies power for the auxiliary output device circuit. Connect the yellow 16ga. wire to an ignition-powered circuit. 8 9 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. 10 SECTION VII SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE ADJUSTMENTS & TROUBLE-SHOOTING ADJUSTING P.A.
