BLUETOOTH WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW At Motorola we believe that easy portable com- munication is the key to creating a safer environ- ment. That’s why we designed this exciting new two-way communication device called the Radio Bluetooth Adapter (RBA). The RBA represents another breakthrough in applying Bluetooth wire- less technology by Motorola.
If your radio is VOX (voice activated transmission) capable, the Bluetooth wireless functionality will continue with your adapter and a VOX capable Bluetooth wireless headset. We’re confident that once you try the Bluetooth wireless adapter and accessories, you’ll wonder how you survived with all those attachment wires in the first place! Latch (Push-To-Talk)
GETTING STARTED Installing the Radio Bluetooth Adapter (RBA) OTE: The RBA is designed to clip onto the back of specially designed radio batteries. 1. Place the bottom of the RBA to the battery. Press the top latch of the RBA to the battery until it snaps into place.
Removing the Radio Bluetooth Adapter (RBA) 1. Detach the side connector from the acces- sory connector with the metal screw using a coin or thin bladed screwdriver. 2. Detach the top latch by pressing down and pulling the RBA away from the battery. Turning ON the RBA The RBA turns ON when the radio is turned ON.
3. Place the audio accessory next to the radio. (For best results keep both within a few inches of each other.) • The RBA LED flashes ORANGE until a successful connection is established. If a connection has not been established, the LED flashes RED.
Lost Link If the connection is lost at any time, the RBA LED flashes ORANGE until the connection is re-estab- lished. If a connection has not been re-established within 30 seconds the LED flashes RED. OTE: During the attempt to re-establish a con- nection, your radio and PTT button func- tion normally.
Disconnecting the Bluetooth Wireless Connection You can disconnect and re-establish the connec- tion when both the RBA and audio accessory are still on. 1. Press both the RBA BLUE and PTT buttons. • The RBA LED flashes RED, indicating the connection is broken.
LED Indicators RBA LED Indicator Description GREEN Solid GREEN for 1 second, indicates suc- cessful RBA power-up, or... Solid GREEN for 1 second, indicates suc- cessful connection with an accessory, or... Solid GREEN for duration of the PTT press or while receiving, indicates the RBA is functioning correctly.
OPERATION Operational Range For optimum performance from your RBA, use it within 30 feet of your audio accessory. This range will vary depending on environmental conditions, i.e. clothing, radio placement on body, buildings. Receiving Once the RBA is connected to your audio acces- sory, the radio speaker mutes and the audio is heard only from the audio accessory.
Volume Control Refer to your Bluetooth wireless audio accessory manual for any volume control instructions. VOX (Voice Activated Transmission) (Available only with select VOX capable radios) If your radio is VOX capable and has been pro- grammed into the radio, this feature can be enabled to operate with the RBA and an audio accessory.
To De-activate VOX Press either the RBA or audio accessory PTT button. • The radio exits VOX mode and returns to normal operation. BATTTERY Your RBA and battery are safe to charge in your current radio’s battery charger. Low Battery Alert Refer to your radio’s operator manual for specific battery instructions.
Motorola Americas Accessories Aftermarket Division (AAD) at: 1-800-422-4210 or 847-538-8023. WARRANTY The RBA is covered under the standard Motorola one (1) year limited warranty: Refer to your Motorola dealer for detailed infor- mation on your RBA’s standard warranty.
REPLACING THE HHLN4125 SIDE CONNECTOR BOARD Disassembling the RBA before the one (1) year limited warranty has expired will void the warranty. Disassembling the Side Connector Board 1. Detach the RBA from the radio. 2. Remove the two screws in the housing/button assem- bly using a T6 Torx®...
2. Flip the board over so the 7-pin connector is facing upward. 3. Place the board into the Shelf housing so that it is seated properly onto the board retention shelf. 4. Carefully press the rubber gasket into the housing/button assembly starting at the strain relief.
5. Replace the two screws into the housing/but- ton assembly using a T6 Torx® driver. 6. Re-attach the RBA to the radio.
