Where to install

The following points should be considered before choosing a location for mounting CARCAT.

The unit should be mounted on a hard rigid surface and secured tightly to the mounting surface using the screws provided.

Mounting should be such that the front grill of CARCAT always faces hard metallic / plastic surfaces.
(This ensures multiple reflections of ultrasound waves. Ultrasound energy is quickly absorbed by soft materials like foam and rubber, drastically reducing performance.)

The unit should be mounted away from hot surfaces or engine parts.

Important

It is recommended to connect CARCAT directly to the battery as the unit should always be powered ‘ON’.
In case of existing rat / rodent infestation, the user is advised to park the vehicle at a different location for a few days post installation.

Ensure minimum clearance of 20 cm (~8 inches) between front grill of CARCAT and any other engine part.

Never mount unit with front grill of CARCAT facing the ground.

Do not mount unit facing the bonnet, if it is covered with insulating foam.
