Here are two acceptable methods of making a wire connections: * Soldering your connections (recommended) * Crimp connectors (with the use of the proper crimping tool) Regardless of the method you choose, ensure that the connection is mechanically sound and properly insulated. Use high quality electrical tape and shrink tubing where necessary. This product is connected directly to the vehicle’s ignition switch, 12 to 55 V DC. There is no on-off switch on the unit.

  3. 3. Defender installation precautions Do not mount Defender indicator to the dashboard plastic surface. The installation on “soft” surface area will act as a shock absorber and system will not indicate a true impact values. Selecting the mounting location for Defender Mount defender indicator in front of the operator . The LCD display of the indicator must be positioned in direction of the forward travel direction of the vehicle. Digital indicator should be mounted on solid metal surface (dashboard, upper railing, side railing, etc.). Use Defender metal mounting bracket to fasten the system to the vehicle body. Unit should be installed in vertical position, +/- 15 degree is allowed for proper operation. Electrical Connections All stand alone Defender systems operate from 12 to 55 V DC. There are only two wires to be connected to the vehicle. RED Wire - Ignition switch Black Wire - Battery negative or vehicle ground Integrated Visual Data Technology Inc. 3439 Whilabout Terrace, Oakville, Ontario, Canada L6L 0A7 www.skidweigh.com

The second one is the “High impact” which will be shown on LCD display, audio alarm will be activated for 10 seconds and the event will be recorder on USB memory stick and / or send to Bolero wireless portal for further analysis. All “High impacts” events will be recorded on Bolero portal, e-mail notification can be send out, etc. All impact events are shown to the operator on LCD display in actual G forces. No Operator ID# Input Operator ID# Input ( Maximum 3 digits ) Operator Input ID# Enter valid operator ID# (Max. 3 digits) and press Enter key Optional USB Recordings Defender units equipped with USB port will record start and finish of the session (Ignition On and Off) and all of the “High impacts” events. Default values for “LOW” and “High” impact detections Factory default value for “LOW Impact” is 1G and for the “HIGH Impact” is 3G.
