3. Sensor painting



















Before spraying, check the original vehicle paint code. Spray the primer, ensure it is completely dry before
painting the sensors the vehicle colour. Let the vehicle colour paint dry thoroughly and spray with a gloss
coating to protect the paint as required. The maximum temperature of the oven should not exceed 70° C.
See Section 22 for detailed sensor spraying information.
4. Sensor positioning




































If sensors are installed within the parameters outlined above it should not be necessary to perform the
ECU parameter programming procedure.
If sensors are outside these parameters refer to Section 5 for sensor measuring and Section 17 for the
ECU parameter programming procedure.

The sensors minimum installation height is 400 mm with a 0 degree angle.
If sensors are installed higher than 550 mm the sensitivity should be increased to ensure obstacle
detection, see Section 17.
If the 22mm or 25mm sensors are installed higher than 550mm consider using angled spacers.

5.0 Bumper marking, removal and drilling

Mark the sensor locations on the bumper
exactly in position and ensure that any lines
drawn on the bumper are done so using a
marker that can be wiped away without trace.
Take time to confirm all your measurements
are correct and accurate.














5.1 Measuring sensor positions













If sensors are to be installed in a horizontal
line, take the measurements as shown above.













If the side sensors have different measurements
use the largest measurement for both when
programming, see Section 17.


If sensors are to be installed at different height
positions, take the measurements as shown above.
The vertical offset should not be greater than 100mm.

Remove the bumper, disconnecting vehicle lights as
applicable.
Drill a 2 mm hole for each sensor.

6. Patch adhesion promoter (R0390)

Wear latex gloves handling the Patch Primer.
Clean the mouting collars (see Section 7) then the bumper (see Section 8).

7. Mounting collar preparation (R0390)

Clean the mounting sides of the mounting collars as shown above.
Fix a double sided sticky pad to each mounting collar leaving the red backing in place.



















8. Bumper preparation (R0390)

Surface cleaning
Clean the internal surface of the bumper applying the Patch Primer on areas slightly larger than the
mounting collar size.

IMPORTANT
Extra care should be taken when using the enclosed cleaning pad, to ensure that the fluid doesn’t come
into contact with the paintwork of the vehicle, as damage will result.









R0190, R0290 and R0390 Installation and Configuration Guide – Rev 1 6
9. Recommended hole cutters

The recommend hole cutter tools for 0390 series are;
VPL3312 – 17mm punch tool
VPL3239 – 17mm drill

The recommend hole cutter tools for 0190 and 0290 series are;
VPL3299 – 20mm drill

NOTE:
Punch tools provide a better finish by forming the hole edge inwards and a clean cut to the paint work,
removing the need to paint the hole edges of the bumper.

10. Sensor cleaning, preparation and adjustment (R0390)

Sensor setup
a) Remove any excess paint from the rubber surround of the sensors.
b) Screw the sensors into the mounting collars.
c) Do not remove the red backing film, place each sensor into the holes in the bumper
d) Rotate the sensor to set the sensor depth so it is flush with the bumper surface and ensure the
connectors point downwards. (Max 0.5 mm protruding).

IMPORTANT:
Ensure you install each sensor in the hole where you made the related bumper thickness adjustment.

11. Securing the sensors to the bumper (R0390)

Sensor placing
a) Remove the red backing film from the mounting collars.
b) Fix the sensors in the bumper holes with the connector pointing downwards.
c) If required sensors can be rotated 180° degrees without compromising the proper functioning.


































11.1 Securing the sensors to the bumper (R0290, R0190)

Sensor placing
a) The sensors must be inserted in the bumper with the reference mark upwards.
b) They can be rotated 180° degrees without compromising the proper functioning.
c) Check that the fixing wings are correctly opened, otherwise open them using a small screwdriver as
shown in the picture.

12. Sensor lead routing and sensor connections

Sensor lead and sensor positioning
a) Use an original grommet to route the sensor leads into the vehicle.
b) Secure the sensor leads using the supplied tie-wraps.
c) The sensor leads are numbered and must be connected from 1 to 4 across the bumper, as shown
above.
d) Fit the rubber covers.

IMPORTANT Ensure sensor leads are pointing downwards, as shown above.




































13. Bumper reassembling and ECU positioning

Bumper reassembly
a) Reassemble the bumper to the vehicle.
b) Pay particular attention to the sensor lead routing.
c) Reconnect vehicle light connectors as applicable.



















ECU positioning
Position the ECU and buzzer away from each other

17.0 System programming

System adjustability
Four aspects of the system can be programmed;
Buzzer volume, Sensor sensitivity, Side sensor distance and Central sensor distance.

Enter programming
a) Ignition off.
b) Disconnect connectors J2 and J3 (Sensor leads).
c) Turn ignition on and engage reverse gear.
d) The system beeps for 2 seconds.
e) Disconnect and reconnect the buzzer within the 2 seconds to enter programming mode.

If during the 2 second beep the buzzer is not disconnected and reconnected again, the system will enter
the self-diagnostic check, see Section 19. To exit from the self-diagnostic check turn the ignition off.

f) The system beeps 6 times to confirm it has entered the programming mode.
g) After the 6 beeps the system beeps 1, 2, 3 and 4 times indicating the four setup functions available.
h) The table cycles until the buzzer is disconnected.
i) Disconnect the buzzer after hearing the number of beeps for the function to be adjusted.
j) When the buzzer is reconnected the system goes to the programming table of the selected function.

18. System functionality check

Operation check
a) Position the vehicle with sensors facing a wall at a distance of approximately 1.6 m.
b) Turn the ignition on and engage reverse gear.
c) The system confirms its activation with 1 beep.
d) Reverse towards the wall at low speed, the beep frequency will increase.
e) When the vehicle is at 30 cm from the wall, the beep becomes a continuous tone.



































19. Self-diagnostic check

Health check
The system reports any failures of sensors or the ECU with a long beep followed by beeps associated to
the fault detected. The system signals any faults upon ignition on and during operation.

20. Hardware functions
20.1 Radio mute

a) Insert in position 5 of the J1 connector the RED wire cut from the main harness.
b) Connect the other end of the wire to the Radio mute input wire of the radio.
(The output signal from the system is negative).

Each time the system is activated the radio volume is lowered, thus allowing the buzzer to be heard.







20.2 Towbar ball detection avoidance

a) Insert in position 1 of the J1 connector the RED wire cut from the main harness.
b) Connect the other end of the wire to the vehicle ground.

This will prevent the towbar ball from being detected.

21. Product technical features































22. Spraying process

Painting the sensors
The sensors inner transducer eye itself is made from Aluminium (Pre-Coated).
The F0190 and F0290 outer sensor sleeve is made from “PBT” / Valox material.

The plastic masking rings (F0190 and F0290 ) must be put over the central silic on absorber before
painting. This is to prevent paint coating this part, as it would reduce the vibrati on capability of the
transducer itself.

Place the four sensors in the spraying tray onto a flat hoizontal surface.

Insert the spacer rings provided securely in position.
It is important to apply the spray in even thin coats from various angles approximately 300mm from the
sensors.
Use more than one coat if required, applying too much spray at one time will form ripples or gather to
one edge.

Apply an appropriate primer spray to each sensor and immediately REMOVE THE MASKING RINGS.
Important
If the masking rings are removed when the paint is dry, it will fracture the paint surface around the silicon
band.

Allow 20 minutes for primer to dry.

Apply the vehicle colour paint following the details described above.
Remember to use thin even strokes and more than one coat with an appropriate drying period between
coats.

Once again REMOVE THE MASKING RINGS whilst the paint is still wet to prevent c racking.
Depending on the type of vehicle body paint, it may be necessary to apply a lacquer to the surface paint.
