  3. Remove metal shavings from cross member surfaces.
  4. Paint all exposed metal surfaces in and around holes with a rust preventative paint.
  5. Allow the paint to dry for 10 minutes.
  6. Mount the device using screws (4), flat washers (4) and self-locking nuts (4).
  7. Ensure that the flat washers are between the screw heads and the plastic device housing.
  8. Tighten each screw using 5/16" socket, ratchet and 3/8" open-end wrench.

Do not throw the activation magnet away. You may need it to reset the device.

Configuring the device

  1. Once mounted, remove the magnet. This will turn the asset tracker on and cause it to send the first plot to Reveal. It will not report again for about 24 hours. CalAmp_730_magnet_removed.png
  2. To change the plot time, replace the magnet for 2 minutes, then remove and verify again.
  3. Make sure that the device is reporting properly. If it is not, apply the magnet for two minutes and remove again.
