2  Mounting and Connecting the LC-1


                   1. Find a suitable location under your vehicle where the LC-1 body can be mounted. Using zip
                   ties or other suitable method, fasten the body of the LC-1 device securely to the frame-rails or
                   other mounting points as far away from the heat of the exhaust system as the sensor cable
                   allows. DO NOT zip-tie the LC-1 by the cables.

                   2.   Route the cables from the LC-1 (except sensor cable) into the car interior under the dash.

                   3.   LC-1 Cable connections:

                       A.  Interface and power cables with 7 stripped ends*:

                          a. Red             12V supply
                          b. Blue           Heater Ground
                          c. White       System Ground
                          d. Yellow        Analog out 1
                          e. Brown         Analog out 2
                          f. Green        Analog Ground
                          g. Black            Calibration wire

                       B.  Serial In connection, 2.5mm stereo (female) marked as IN
                       C.  Serial Out connection, 2.5 mm stereo (female) marked as OUT.

                       * 3.2  If you have an LC-1 with only 6 stripped ends (early production) the wiring is as follows:

                          a. Red             12V supply
                          b. Blue             Heater Ground
                          c. Metallic       System Ground
                          d. Yellow         Analog out 1
                          e. Brown          Analog out 2
                          f.  Black            Calibration wire

                   4.   Connect the RED wire to a switched 12V source in your car. A switched 12V source goes on
                       as soon as the ignition on the car is on. Make sure the connection is fused with a fuse of
                       minimum 5A.

                   5.   Connect the BLUE wire to a chassis ground. Make sure it has a good ground connection.
                       Note: Make sure that this wire are connected to a good grounding point.

                   6. Connect the WHITE and the GREEN wires to the ground of the device you want to send the
                       analog output signal to (ECU or data logger.) If the analog outputs are not being used,
                       ground both the white and green wires to a separate chassis ground, away from the blue
                       system ground wire from the LC-1. Note: Make sure that these wires are connected to a good
                       grounding point.

                   7. Optionally, the YELLOW (Analog out 1) and/or BROWN (Analog out 2) can be connected to
                       the analog inputs of other devices such as data loggers and ECUs. If either one or both of
                       these wires are not being used isolate and tape the wire(s) out of the way. Note: The LC-1’s
                       system ground and analog ground wires should be grounded at the analog input’s ground.

                   8.  Optionally connect a momentary pushbutton switch between ground and the BLACK
                       calibration wire. If this wire is not being used isolate and tape the wire out of the way. Note:
                       This will not be necessary if the LC-1 is connected to Innovate Motorsports’ XD-1 digital
                       gauge. If the wire is not are not being used isolate and tape the wire out of the way.
