Ms200 Install Asphalt

  1. 1. MySpot 200 Installation Procedure (Asphalt) 19JUL2007
  2. 2. Concrete or Asphalt? <ul><li>The procedure is different for concrete and for asphalt surfaces. </li></ul><ul><li>If the surface is concrete, close this manual and select the “Concrete installation” manual </li></ul>
  3. 3. Mounting Option A <ul><li>Replace the asphalt with areas of concrete </li></ul><ul><li>This will provide the most reliable and the strongest mounting surface </li></ul><ul><li>Once the concrete is dry, proceed with the “mounting on concrete” instructions </li></ul>
  4. 4. Mounting Option B <ul><li>Use 3 rd party asphalt chemical anchors </li></ul><ul><li>You drill an oversize hole, fill it with epoxy, then drop a special insert anchors into the hole </li></ul><ul><li>The kits are available from Hilti and other manufacturers </li></ul>
  5. 5. Mounting Option C <ul><li>Use construction-grade adhesive to glue the plates to the surface </li></ul><ul><li>Asphalt must be in excellent condition </li></ul><ul><li>Not suitable for hot climates because asphalt softens </li></ul><ul><li>This is the easiest but somewhat less reliable solution </li></ul>
  6. 6. Mounting Option D <ul><li>Use Designated Parking’s SP14/7 spike anchors in combination with adhesive </li></ul><ul><li>Both spike and the adhesive are optional and are not part of the MySpot 200 kit </li></ul><ul><li>A step-by-step procedure is described in this manual </li></ul>
  7. 7. Locating the MySpot 200 <ul><li>The unit is placed so that, when the car is parked </li></ul><ul><li>the barrier is ahead of the rear wheels </li></ul><ul><li>but does not interfere with the access to the front doors. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Install in Middle <ul><li>Only install the unit in the middle of the space </li></ul>
  9. 9. Space Requirements <ul><li>Surface must be flat </li></ul><ul><li>No standing water </li></ul><ul><li>No high points </li></ul>
  10. 10. Inspect the Carton <ul><li>A: PowerPod (includes the electronics and the mechanism) </li></ul><ul><li>B: IdlePod </li></ul><ul><li>C: Barrier </li></ul><ul><li>D: (2) remote controls </li></ul><ul><li>E: Parts kit </li></ul><ul><li>F: Drilling Template </li></ul>
  11. 11. Where to Place the Unit <ul><li>Place the template “TT” as shown </li></ul>
  12. 12. Direction of Template <ul><li>The template must be perpendicular to the edge of the parking space </li></ul><ul><li>Note the direction of the arrow on the template </li></ul>
  13. 13. Drill Pilot Holes <ul><li>Use a small (6mm, ¼”) drill to mark the 7 holes by drilling through the template into the surface </li></ul><ul><li>Do not drill directly with the larger drill </li></ul><ul><li>Remove template </li></ul><ul><li>Verify that all 7 holes are clearly visible </li></ul>
  14. 14. Drill 7 holes <ul><li>Use a 17mm (5/8”) masonry drill </li></ul><ul><li>Drill precisely where the 7 small holes were marked </li></ul><ul><li>Drill to a depth of 36cm (14”) or more </li></ul><ul><li>Blow holes clean when done </li></ul>
  15. 15. Fill Holes with Adhesive <ul><li>Squirt adhesive into the holes </li></ul><ul><li>Only fill to about half the depth </li></ul>
  16. 16. Hammer Spikes <ul><li>The spikes are provided with protective bolts </li></ul><ul><li>Do not remove the bolts </li></ul><ul><li>Hammer the spikes until the top of the spike is flush with the ground </li></ul><ul><li>The bolt head must be above ground </li></ul>
  17. 17. Clean Surface <ul><li>Broom sweep the area where the bolts are located and where the plates will be mounted </li></ul>
  18. 18. Remove Screws <ul><li>Removed the bolts and washers from the 7 anchors </li></ul>
  19. 19. Separate Plates from Pods <ul><li>Remove 4 security bolts from PowerPod </li></ul><ul><li>Remove 2 security bolts from IdlePod </li></ul><ul><li>Separate the pods from the plates </li></ul>
  20. 20. Apply Adhesive <ul><li>Hold each of the plates upside down </li></ul><ul><li>Apply the adhesive in a zigzag pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Cover the entire area, especially the perimeter </li></ul>
  21. 21. Attach Plates <ul><li>Place the plates so the large holes align with the spikes </li></ul><ul><li>Use large washers and bolts from anchors (7 sets) </li></ul><ul><li>Secure plates to ground </li></ul><ul><li>Do not tighten yet </li></ul>
  22. 22. Check alignment <ul><li>Bend or cut the template as shown </li></ul><ul><li>Place template between plates </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust plates until aligned parallel to edges of template </li></ul><ul><li>Verify that there is less than 4mm (1/8”) gap between template and plates </li></ul>
  23. 23. Tighten Screws <ul><li>Once the alignment has been confirmed, tighten the 7 bolts of the anchors </li></ul><ul><li>If any bolt will not tighten (anchor slips), remove anchor, use some filler and reapply anchor </li></ul><ul><li>It is essential that all 7 anchors share the load </li></ul>
  24. 24. Caulk Edges of Plates <ul><li>Stand on the plates to force excess adhesive to the edges </li></ul><ul><li>Apply a bead of adhesive around the perimeter of the 2 plates </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose is to seal the edges of the plates so that water does not enter under the plates </li></ul><ul><li>This is particularly critical if the ground is subject to freezing at any time </li></ul>
  25. 25. Attach PowerPod <ul><li>Use the 4 security bolts and washers that came with the IdlePod assembly to secure the pod to the plate </li></ul><ul><li>If the wrong bolts are used (too long), they will push the plates out of the ground </li></ul><ul><li>Tighten the 4 bolts securely </li></ul>
  26. 26. Disassemble IdlePod <ul><li>The IdlePod needs to be attached to its plate using 3 bolts </li></ul><ul><li>To access the 3 rd bolt, the cover needs to be removed </li></ul><ul><li>Use the security wrench to remove the 3 bolts </li></ul>
  27. 27. Remove Cover <ul><li>Lift the cover of the IdlePod </li></ul><ul><li>Lift the shaft </li></ul><ul><li>The 3 rd hole may be protected by a plastic insert </li></ul><ul><li>Remove the insert by pushing it from the top </li></ul>
  28. 28. Prepare IdlePod Plate <ul><li>Place 2 adaptors over the 2 outside holes in the plate </li></ul><ul><li>If these adaptors are not in your kit, proceed without them </li></ul>
  29. 29. Attach IdlePod <ul><li>Use security bolt, star washer and flat washer to attach the 2 outside ears of the pod to the plate </li></ul><ul><li>Use a black Allen bolt with star washer and flat washer for the middle attachment point </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure all bolts are the proper length; bolts that are too long will push the plate off the ground </li></ul><ul><li>Tighten all 3 bolts </li></ul>
  30. 30. Place Shaft in IdlePod <ul><li>Place the shaft back so that the slot fits over the bar in the base </li></ul><ul><li>The cowling on the shaft must be free to fall forward (towards the entrance to the space) </li></ul><ul><li>If it is not, rotate the shaft 180 degrees before placing it on the base </li></ul>
  31. 31. Close Cover of IdlePod <ul><li>Place the cover over the IdlePod </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure it is seated correctly </li></ul><ul><li>Secure in place using 3 security bolts with star washers </li></ul>
  32. 32. WARNING <ul><li>Failure to use the internal bolt for mounting the IdlePod to the plate will cause the IdlePod ears to break off and void the warranty </li></ul>
  33. 33. Install the Barrier <ul><li>Slide the barrier over the cowlings of the 2 pods as shown </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier should be kept parallel to the ground as it is being installed </li></ul><ul><li>Only minimal force is required </li></ul><ul><li>If excessive force is required, check the alignment of the pods </li></ul>
  34. 34. Secure the Barrier <ul><li>Use the 4 short security bolts and star washers </li></ul><ul><li>Tighten securely using the special wrench in the kit </li></ul>
  35. 35. Ready for Test <ul><li>The installation is now complete. The next steps cover the test procedure </li></ul>
  36. 36. The Remotes <ul><li>2 Remote controls are included in the kit </li></ul><ul><li>Each remote can control up to 9 separate barriers </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier in the kit was factory programmed to accept the #2 button on each of the 2 remotes </li></ul>
  37. 37. Terminology <ul><li>Please study the sketch on the right </li></ul><ul><li>Shown are 4 states of the barrier </li></ul>
  38. 38. Locked Up State <ul><li>This is the normal “blocking” state </li></ul><ul><li>Applying moderate force to the barrier in either direction will not move the barrier </li></ul><ul><li>However, if the force exceeds 30 Kg (65 lbs), the barrier will yield </li></ul><ul><li>When the excessive force is removed, the barrier will return to the Locked Up state. </li></ul>
  39. 39. UnLocked State <ul><li>Press the #2 button on the Remote. </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier will fall </li></ul><ul><li>Its new position is the Un Locked state </li></ul><ul><li>In this state, the barrier can be raised by hand with no resistance </li></ul><ul><li>If raised all the way, it will lock in the Locked Up position </li></ul><ul><li>If the barrier was previously manually raised, when the command drops the barrier to the UnLocked state, the internal motor can be heard running an extra cycle. This is normal </li></ul>
  40. 40. Locked Down State <ul><li>When a wheel of the car drives over the barrier, the barrier is pushed to the ground </li></ul><ul><li>That is the Overtravel state </li></ul><ul><li>When the wheel leaves the barrier, the barrier returns to the Locked Down state </li></ul><ul><li>The only way to exit the locked down state is via a remote command </li></ul>
  41. 41. Testing, continued <ul><li>If the barrier is in the Unlocked state… </li></ul><ul><li>… Step on the barrier </li></ul><ul><li>You need to apply 100 Kg (220 lbs) to force the barrier to the ground </li></ul><ul><li>Jump if your weight is less than that… </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier will hit the ground </li></ul><ul><li>When you step off, it will rise somewhat to the Locked Down state </li></ul>
  42. 42. Testing, Last Step <ul><li>Step on the barrier a second time </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier needs to be driven on twice, like a car getting in and out, to prevent accidental raising of the barrier under a parked car </li></ul><ul><li>Push the #2 button on the remote </li></ul><ul><li>The barrier will rise to the Locked Up position </li></ul>
  43. 43. Trouble Shooting <ul><li>If you run into a problem when testing the unit </li></ul><ul><li>Look up a separate troubleshooting chart </li></ul><ul><li>The chart is printed at the end of the installation manual </li></ul><ul><li>Or use the Troubleshooting Wizard available on our web site </li></ul>
