Antenna Connection

To connect the IsatDock2 MARINE to the GSPS BEAM Antenna, requires the use of certified satellite and GPS antenna cables. These cables are purpose built cables as approved by BEAM to manage the power requirements for the antenna system.

  1. Refer to the antennas installation guide for antenna mounting and location requirements.
  2. Connect the antenna cable labelled “GPS” to the SMA antenna connector labelled “GPS”.
  3. Connect the antenna cable labelled “Inmarsat” to the SMA antenna connector labelled “SAT”.
  4. Connect the GPS-SMA (Female) cable end to the IsatDock2 MARINE’s SMA connector.
  5. Connect the TNC (Female) antenna cable end to the IsatDock2 MARINE’s satellite connector.

WARNINGDO NOT pull with force on the cables from the rear of the IsatDock2 MARINE. Please install strain relief clamping for the antenna cables where required. Correct installation of the antenna system is a vital part of the IsatDock MARINE system, to ensure reliable functionality, and drop-free calls.

WARNINGChanges or modifications not expressly approved by BEAM Communications could void the product warranty

WARNINGTo satisfy FCC RF exposure requirements for mobile transmitting devices, a separation distance of 55 cm or more should be maintained between the antenna of this device and persons during device operation. To ensure compliance, operations at closer than this distance is not recommended.

Privacy Handset and Mounting Cup

There are two unique mounting cups fit for the privacy handset. (1) springless cup for either a desk mounted cradle position or a wall mounted cradle position. (2) spring cup for heavy duty use.

(1) Springless CupDesk mounted cradle positionThe ‘springless’ cup is fitted to the docking station with the mounting clip in a ‘flush’ position.

Wall mounted cradle positionThe mounting clip can be slid out and reversed, producing a protruding point that the Privacy handset rests upon. For a wall mounted docking station this retains the privacy handset and the springless cup has enough height to allow the handset to rise up off the clip and out of the mounting cup. This option would be best suited for stable conditions

(2) Spring Cup – Heavy duty useIn harsh environments, the Privacy handset is actively retained in the mounting cup. This is achieved by using the ‘spring’ mounting cup. To remove the handset from the cup, the phone is lifted up against the pressure of the spring until it clears the lower mounting pip and can be removed from the docking station.

Docking and Un-docking your IsatPhone 2

  1. Lift the antenna ‘cover’ and rotate through 180 degrees, then push down into the open position.
  2. The ‘cover’ in the base of the phone should be rotated 180 degrees to be in the open position
  3. Detach the USB/Audio adapter from the dock and insert by hand in the base of the IsatPhone 2.
  4. To dock the handset, open the antenna slightly, align the IsatPhone 2 with the phone tray and slide the handset down until it seats flush to the bottom of the tray. Swing the phone down into the cradle by applying pressure to the top of the handset. An audible ‘click’ is heard when the phone is in the docked position.
  5. To remove the handset from the cradle, press the EJECT button at the top of the docking station. The dock will swing out and the handset can be removed.
  6. Place the adapter back in its dedicated slot, when the phone is not in the docking unit.

Mounting Orientation

There are four keyhole shaped slots in the mounting bracket that mate with feet on the rear of the docking station. To attach the bracket, the larger end of the keyhole will pass over the feet. The dock is then slid down to lock the feet into the narrow section of the keyhole.

Fit the docks feet in large holes of the bracket

 Slide Dock down

 Final lock position

The IsatDock2 MARINE can be mounted either flat on a desk or vertically to a wall. When wall mounting the docking station, the wall bracket is first screwed to the wall and the dock is slid into place. One security pin is then slid into place locking the dock to the wall.The docking station can be elevated in the desk mounted orientation by two retractable feet included in the mounting bracket.

NOTE: For extensive mounting instructions please refer to your IsatDock2 MARINE Manual.
