You must install a terminal block as part of the Genetec Motoscan™ system. The terminal block connects Genetec Motoscan™ hardware and taps the scooter's battery to supply power to the system.

Before you begin

Install the main unit and controller hardware and fish their respective cables through the scooter body to the terminal block location.

What you should know

Wire ferrules are included and are color-coded according to each wire gauge. You must use the correct wire ferrules when making connections to the terminal block as shown in the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.

Procedure

To install the terminal block:

  1. Choose a location under the seat of the scooter to install the terminal block. Ensure that there is enough room to install the hardware and to make the required wire connections.
    NOTE: If the system includes an EV battery backup module, ensure that adequate space is available to install the module. This module is only required if turning off the ignition cuts all power from the scooter. This is common with electric scooters.
  2. Secure the terminal block and EV battery backup module (if included) using the provided screws.
    Tip: If space is limited, you can secure the terminal block after you have made the wire connections. However, remember that if the wire connections are not accessible, you might need to remove the terminal block to make changes to system wiring.
  3. Make the wire connections for the main unit cable.
    1. Remove enough of the cable jacket so that the wires can reach their correct locations on the terminal block, and then separate the wires in the main unit cable.
    2. The odometry cable is embedded in the main unit cable. The odometry cable has a foil jacket and includes a twisted pair (red and black) with a drain wire. Remove a small amount of the foil jacket so that the wires can reach their correct locations on the terminal block.
    3. Make the wire connections for the main unit cable according to the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.
  4. Make the wire connections for the controller cable.
    1. Remove enough of the cable jacket of the controller cable so that the wires can reach their correct locations on the terminal block, and separate the wires in the controller cable.
    2. Make the wire connections for the controller cable according to the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.
  5. Tap the scooter's ignition signal using a 2 A fuse as shown in the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.
  6. Tap the scooter's 12 V power using a 20 A fuse as shown in the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.
    NOTE: If the system includes an EV battery backup module, make the wire connections as shown in the Genetec Motoscan™ wiring diagram.

Test to confirm the hardware wiring is correct

  1. Starting with the scooter powered off, push the power button on the main unit to the ON position.
  2. Turn on the scooter's igition.
  3. Confirm that the blue status LED on the main unit is flashing.
    When the startup process is complete (approximately three minutes), the blue LED turns off and the controller's left camera LED starts to flash red (disregard the right camera LED). The LEDs show this error state because 3G has not been configured yet.
  4. Turn off the scooter's igition.
    The blue status LED flashes for approximately two minutes, indicating that the system is shutting down.

After you finish

For new systems that include an EV battery backup module, or if the module has not been used for a long period of time, you must allow the module to fully charge before shutting down the system. In such cases, it is recommended that you let the scooter run for at least one hour before turning off the ignition. Alternatively, you can use the power button on the Genetec Motoscan™ unit to safely shut down the system before turning off the scooter.
