There are two versions of the APX mobile dash mount. The first are the O2, O5 and O7 control heads which are mounted on the front of the transceiver housing.
Introduction Standard Configurations 1.2.2 Remote Mount Configuration In the remote control version, the transceiver and the control head are mounted separately in the vehicle. The O2, O5 and O7 control heads are mounted in remote trunnions near the operator.The O3 and O9 control heads are also mounted near the operator using extension cables. The transceiver and control head are mounted using a trunnion or other mounting hardware.

Introduction Standard Configurations 1-13 1.2.3 Multi Control Head The multi control head option allows separate, remotely operated control heads to operate and control the radio. For example, a fire truck could have a control head located in the cab and on the rear of the truck so that the radio could be operated from outside the vehicle.
1-14 Introduction Motorcycle Configurations Motorcycle Configurations NOTE: The motorcycle configurations are not applicable for 100W radios and O9 control heads. The ASTRO APX mobile motorcycle radio models provide most of the equipment needed for installing a standard ASTRO APX mobile radio on a motorcycle. Most of this radio system is standard equipment.
Chapter 2 Standard Configurations Planning the Installation The APX mobile radio operates only in negative ground electrical systems with a valid operating range of 10.8VDC to 16.3VDC. Before starting the radio installation, make sure that the ground polarity of the vehicle is correct. Accidentally reversing the polarity will not damage the radio, but will cause the cable fuses to blow.
Standard Configurations Planning the Installation 2.1.1 Installation Examples The mobile two-way radio offers various methods of installation, with accessories placed to the vehicle as desired. The radio can be a dash or remote mount except for the 100W radio or with 09 control head, which can only be mounted remotely.
Standard Configurations Planning the Installation 2.1.2 Wiring Diagrams Figure 2-6 through Figure 2-17 show the wiring diagrams for all the possible configurations. The title under each figure identifies the O2, O3, O5, O7 or O9 control head configurations. Identify which of these figures shows the configuration that you are installing, and use the diagram when planning the installation.

Standard Configurations Planning the Installation NOTE: In dash mount configuration, it is mandatory that a rear accessory cable be attached at the back of a mid power transceiver, in order to ground the Emergency pin to GND. Or, an emergency footswitch or pushbutton switch must be attached at the back of a mid power. If the emergency pin is not grounded, upon the attachment of the A+ cable at the DC connector, the radio will detect a HIGH for the emergency pin state, and assume that emergency has been activated.

Standard Configurations Antenna Installation 2-39 7. Ensure that any transmitting radio antennas on this vehicle are separated from each other by at least 3 feet (0.9 meter). See Figure 2-49. 8. The minimum distance between the antenna and the radio/accessories should be at least 3 feet (91.44 cm).
(e.g., stripping threads, deforming the collar or connector, or causing the connector to twist in the housing opening and break). The mini-UHF connector tool (Motorola part number HLN6695_) is designed to securely tighten the antenna plug–radio jack connection without damaging either the plug or the jack.
Standard Configurations Antenna Installation 2-41 4. Slide the collar back against the flange. Insert the antenna cable plug’s pin fully into the radio jack, but do not engage the threads. 5.

Chapter 3 Universal Relay Controller Installation The Universal Relay Controller (URC) is an extension of and an orderable accessory for O7 or O9 control head. URC is used to control high power switching peripherals, e.g. lightbar. URC works on all lightbars which can be controlled by power application. URC is connected to the transceiver's GCAI port.
Universal Relay Controller Installation Universal Relay Controller Mounting Install the URC as follows: 1. Use the URC trunnion as a template to mark the mounting holes; drill 5/32" holes. If mounting on a plastic surface, use a metal backing plate. 2.
The cap nut is then reassembled with tightening torque 18 lb-in. 3. The other end of the power cable should be connected to circuit breaker (Motorola part number 40012006001) end which indicates "AUX" and then, to power supply on the other end which indicates "BAT", instead of connecting to power supply directly.

3.2.4 O7/O9 to URC Cable The O7/O9 to URC cable (Motorola part number 3064153H02) can be assembled either before or after reassembling the top housing. Assemble the RJ45 port of the cable into the RJ45 connector on the URC and turn the locking collar instead of cable, 90 degrees to the right to ensure it is locked properly.
For dash-mounted configurations, the accessories must be installed through the accessory connector assembly that is located on the rear of the radio, adjacent to the power connector. Motorola-approved accessories are supplied with male terminals crimped to a 20-gauge wire specifically designed to fit the plug of the accessory connector assembly.

The mounting procedures for the universal mounting plate vary from motorcycle to motorcycle.
Motorcycle Radio Installation Installation Overview 5.2.2 Important Installation Hints Consider the following when mounting the radio components: • Excess lengths of control-head, power, ignition sense, and speaker cables must be routed in the enclosure as shown in Figure 5-16. • All components must be mounted securely in order to withstand the constant and sometimes severe vibration experienced on a motorcycle.

Motorcycle Radio Installation Installing the Universal Mounting Plate Installing the Universal Mounting Plate The universal mounting plate, supplied with the motorcycle radio, must be mounted on the motorcycle first. It provides the base on which the weather-resistant enclosure is to be mounted. The method used for mounting the plate depends on the make and model of the motorcycle and whether the plate is mounted to a carrier or to the motorcycle chassis.
Figure 5-4) supplied by Motorola. Alternately, the control head may be mounted by itself using a smaller control-head bracket supplied by Motorola. In this case, the speaker is mounted elsewhere. This section outlines installation procedures for each configuration mentioned above.
Motorcycle Radio Installation Installing the Speaker and Control Head 5.4.1 Handlebar Installation with Speaker and Control Head Mounted Together Figure 5-4 illustrates the combination speaker/control head bracket. This combination bracket is used only when the control head and speaker are to be mounted as a unit. Also illustrated in Figure 5-4 is a handlebar-mounting bracket which may be required if the combination speaker/ control-head bracket cannot be easily mounted to the motorcycle.
Motorcycle Radio Installation Installing the Speaker and Control Head Provision has been made on the combination speaker/control-head bracket for mounting the microphone hang-up clip. If that mounting is desired, the hang-up clip must be attached to the bracket before installing the control head and speaker. See Section 5.6: “Installing the Microphone Hang-Up Clip”...

1. Determine the location in which the speaker is to be mounted and whether there is a requirement for a customer-supplied bracket. 2. Fabricate a bracket if required. Use the Motorola-supplied speaker bracket as a template for drilling mounting holes. Also drill holes in the fabricated bracket for mounting to the motorcycle.
Motorcycle Radio Installation Installing Antenna Base and Cables 5-15 5.6.3 Other Hang-Up Clip Mounting To mount the microphone hang-up clip in another location, a customer-supplied bracket may be used. Suggested locations include the handlebars, fuel-tank console, or any location which provides easy access to the microphone without blocking controls and indicators and without interfering with motorcycle handling.
7. Remove the metal liner from the top cover. 8. For Band 1 and Band 2 positions, use the Motorola RPX-4378A Hole-Cutting Saw or equivalent, and carefully drill a 3/4-inch hole at the marked location from the inside of the cover until the saw bottoms out.
