PREPARATION

INSTALLATION

When using the RC-2000 in your vehicle, you can install the transceiver in the trunk, under the seat or under the dash board. On the transceiver, install the DC cable

(7 m/ 23.1 ft), the microphone extension cable

(5 m/ 16.5 ft), a cable for the speaker (5 m/ 16.5 ft), a cable to the RC-2000 (5 m/ 16.5 ft), and coaxial cable(s) to the antenna (not supplied in this package). Make sure all cable lengths are adequate before installing the brackets.

TRANSCEIVER INSTALLATION

When installing the metal plates, first attach the plastic spacers (G11-2698-XX) to the transceiver. This is necessary to protect the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 from scratches.

Note: The plastic spacers (G11-2698-XX) are supplied accessories for the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 transceiver.

Spacers (G11-2698-XX)

3 mm x 4 mm

Install the bracket securely onto the vehicle, using 6 sets of the supplied screws (N99-2024-XX).

Flat washer Bracket

Spring washer

Vehicle chassis

Nut

6 mm x 20 mm

Then, prepare the transceiver by loosely screwing in the rear screws. Hook those screws onto the rear guide rail of the mounting bracket, then adjust the transceiver to your desired angle before tightening the screws. Insert and tighten the front screws to secure the transceiver in place.

Rear screws

4 mm x 10 mm

Front screws

To remove the transceiver from the bracket, first remove the front screws, then loosen the rear screws slightly and pull the transceiver forward to unlatch it from the bracket.

The tab faces out

The tab faces out

Do not install the transceiver so that it is vertically on its side.

SPEAKER AND M IC CABLE INSTALLATION

Connect the speaker extension cable plug to the EXT.SP1 or EXT.SP2 connector {TS-2000 page 78}. Then connect a plug from the speaker to the jack as shown below. Connect the microphone extension cable between the microphone jack on the front of the transceiver and the microphone connector, as shown below.

M ODULAR PLUG CABLE CONNECTION

Use the supplied modular plug cable to connect the front panel to the main unit. Connect the 4-pin plug to the front panel and 6-pin plug to the main unit.

Note: It is easy to identify between the plugs, as the 6-pin plug is slightly wider than the 4-pin plug.

DC POWER CABLE INSTALLATION

The vehicle battery must have a nominal rating of 12 V. Never connect the transceiver to a 24 V battery. Be sure to use a 12 V vehicle battery that has sufficient current capacity. If the current to the transceiver is insufficient, the display may darken during transmission, or transmit output power may drop excessively.

1Route the DC power cable supplied with the transceiver directly to the vehicle’s battery terminals using the shortest path from the transceiver.

If you are using a noise filter, it should be installed with an insulator to prevent it from touching any metal on the vehicle.

We recommend you do not to use the cigarette lighter socket since some cigarette lighter sockets introduce an unacceptable voltage drop.

If the power cable must be routed through a hole in the vehicle chassis or body, for example in the firewall at the front of the passenger compartment, use a rubber grommet to protect the cable from abrasion. Dismantle the fuse holder to pass the cable through the firewall.

The entire length of the cable must be dressed so it is isolated from heat, moisture, and the engine secondary (high voltage) ignition system/ cables.

2After the cable is in place, wind heat-resistant tape around the fuse holder to protect it from moisture and tie down the full run of cable.

3To prevent the risk of short circuits, disconnect other wiring from the negative (–) battery terminal before connecting the transceiver.

4Confirm the correct polarity of the connections, then

Downloaded from: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/

attach the power cable to the battery terminals; red connects to the positive (+) terminal, black connects to the negative (–) terminal.

Use the full length of the cable without cutting off any excess, even if the cable is longer than required. In particular, never remove the fuse holders from the cable.

5Reconnect any wiring you may have removed from the negative battery terminal.

6Connect the DC power cable to the transceiver’s power supply connector.

Press the connectors firmly together until the locking tab clicks.

CYCLING THE KEY GROUPS

OVERVIEW

The TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 transceiver has many function controls. However, the RC-2000 mobile controller has only 12 keys and 5 controls. In order to access all the available functions of the transceiver from the RC-2000 mobile controller, the functions are divided into 3 groups: A, B, and C. Group A is a primary function group with most of the commonly used keys. Group B is a secondary function group. Group C is a special group whose functions change, depending on the current operating mode.

Within each group, there are several sub-groups, each identified by their suffix numbers. Momentarily press [F1] to cycle through each sub-group within your selected group (A, B, or C). The suffix numbers change to reflect the currently selected sub-group. To change the main group (A, B, or C), press and hold [F1].

As you change the group and sub-group, the available functions for [F2] ~ [F6] change. Press one of [F2] ~ [F6] to activate the function which appears on the display above each key.

To access your desired function, first select the appropriate group by pressing and holding [F1]. Next, cycle within the group to the appropriate sub-group by continuously pressing [F1]. The selected group and corresponding number appears on the display above the

[F1] key.

The following diagram illustrates how to access each group and sub-group.

For further information on each function, refer to the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 instruction manual. A Quick look-up table of each operating mode is available, starting on page 47.
