1. Before installation
The auto-alarm should only be installed by a professional installer. It is
suitable for cars with a dashboard voltage supply of 12V or 24V with a
negative ground connection. During the first power-up, the value of supply
voltage is read and the inputs are set to default settings. The alarm is
designed to be installed inside the car.
The immobilizer relay contact of car alarm is connected only in disarmed
mode and if the ignition is on. Do not block circuits that are under voltage
while the ignition is off. It could cause a serious damage of the vehicle.
Disconnect the car battery before starting installation. For airbag-equipped
cars, no person is allow ed to stay inside the car while handling the battery.
Disconnecting the battery can cause a reset of some of the car’s devices
(e.g. clock, default settings etc.). Avoid drilling into the metal parts of the car
body. The manufacturer is not responsible for damage caused by any
incorrect or unsuitable application of the product.
For crimping, special purpose tools should be used. If you do not use
some of the cables, cut them off at a distance of 10cm from the connector,
insulate them properly and tie them into a bunch.
For cars with a voltage supply of 24V, the following restrictions apply
to car alarm installation:
1. It is not possible to connect a hands-free set of type HF-03.
2. When used for acoustic signalling, the SIR output is switched to the
power supply voltage. Consequently, this output switches to 24V, so it
is necessary to use a siren of type SA-606-24V instead of the siren
which is supplied in the standard package.
In this case it is necessary to
set the confirmation beeps to 100 ms.
2. The wiring
Yellow – output siren – switches to +12V (24 V) / max. 1.3 A. It signals
an alarm (30 sec) and confirms control signals
Gray – door switch input. It reacts to connection or disconnection from
ground These switches should be fitted to all of the car’s doors.
White – input INP1 – alarm input or conditional input for car alarm
status modification. Can be used as an alarm input when the CAN BUS
module (e.g. MCB-01) controls the car alarm. As a conditional input, it
works this way: After locking the car, a state change on INP1 (confirmed
by turn lights) will indicate that the car alarm has been armed. Unlocking
the car and changing the state of INP1 will result in the car alarm
disarming. A status change must appear every time after the car is
Yellow-white – input INP2 – alarm input. It reacts to a connection or a
disconnection from the ground (24 hour reaction).
Blue - signals that the ignition key is turned on. Reacts to +12V (24V)
from the switch case. Make sure that a voltage is present in the
connecting wire while starting.
Green – LED indicator – should be installed in a visible place on the
White–black (position 10) – “Arm“, White–blue (position 11) –
“Disarm” – control inputs for arming/disarming. They react to connection
or disconnection to or from ground. They are usually connected to the
inputs of the central locking control unit. If these are not available, the car
alarm inputs can be connected directly to the power wires of the central
locking motors. Two pairs of central locking wires are available. For
mode 2 use the wires without shrinkable tube (part of packaging).
Black – ground – connect to the original grounding point.
Red – power supply +12V (24V) - connect directly to the battery. The
power should be turned on only after a thorough check of the whole
installation has been made !
Orange – back-up battery – connects to a back-up battery of type BB-02
(capacity 450 mAh, consumption up to 20 mA.)
this function is optional
2x Brown – immobilization circuit (max. 8A constantly, 12A
Pink – output AUX – an optional function of the output, see table 7 –
the power supply of external sensors is switched on by +12V/20mA or by
bus communication for modules CR-11A
It is possible to attach a hands-free set of type HF-03
. Using this you are
able to phone out from the car via the car alarm, and also to remotely listen-
in to the car after an alarm has been triggered or after the car has been
immobilized. The HF set connects to the RJ connector on the front side of
the car alarm unit.
3. SIM card insertion
1. Make sure, that the PIN number on the SIM is disabled. If the SIM card
does not allow you to switch the PIN off, set the PIN to 0000. Remember
(note down) the phone number of your SIM card. It is recommended to
delete all original records in the SIM card’s phone directory.
2. Insertion of the SIM card: using a thin object, press the yellow peg
in order to pull out the SIM card holder (the front side of the alarm),
insert the SIM card into the casing with the conducting contacts facing
up and push the casing back carefully up to the sticking point.
3. Install and attach the GSM antenna (the car alarm must not be
connected to a power supply unless a GSM antenna is connected!!!). The
antenna is equipped with an adhesive tape and has to be stuck onto the
car’s window or to another suitable place like, for instance, below the upper
part of the dashboard. The antenna should not be installed close to the car
alarm or near other electronic devices. It is recommended to install the
antenna in a place where it is not easily visible (preferably in a tinted part of
the window). Clear and dry the spot carefully.
4. Install provided GPS antenna - place the antenna so that it will not be
shielded by metal parts of the car. It can be installed just under the top part
of a dashboard (turned with the black plastic cover upward) (the antenna can
be shielded by plastic materials). Wrap both connectors using plastic sticky
tape as they are connected to GND.
5. Check the wiring and connect the power supply. A flash of the indicator
and a beep of the siren indicate that the device is being connected to the
GSM network. Wait until the indicator turns off (up to 1 minute). After that the
car alarm is logged in to the GSM network.
If the flash does not disappear within 1 minute, it means that the login
process failed. If such a case occurs, turn off the power supply, pull out the
SIM card, ensure that the SIM contacts are clean, insert the card into a
mobile phone and check, whether a connection can be established in that
particular place. Also make sure that the SIM card‘s PIN is turned off (or that
it is set to 0000). If the mobile phone connection check is successful, return
the SIM card to the car alarm and repeat the whole procedure.
4. After turning the power supply on
In order to use the functionality of the car alarm according to your needs
you first have to setup its logic and behaviour by the RESET command.
Subsequently, phone numbers and other optional parameters should be set
up and an RC-8x key fob should be enrolled. The setup can be done in the
by editing a record in the SIM card phone directory (it is the simplest
setting method but limited to some functions only, see table 5.1). These
settings (which determine the devices‘ behaviour) are read from the SIM
card after each powering up of the car alarm. After the initial powering up of
the new car alarm with a new (blank) SIM card, configuration records
(names) are created in the SIM card’s phone directory and the default values
set. But in the case that the alarm had been set before and a new (blank)
SIM card is inserted then the stored parameters are copied from the internal
memory to the SIM card. This will help you after SIM card changing. You
can perform basic settings of some of the car alarm’s functions by pulling
the SIM card out of the alarm (after the power supply has been
disconnected) and subsequently inserting it into a mobile phone where you
these accessories are optional
