    Safety Information

    Read this manual carefully before operating the Avatar®III or any related accessories.

    Carefully inspect the Avatar®III before each use.

    Ensure that all parts are secured in place and properly installed. Do not try to make repairs

    yourself. Parts may not work properly if they have been repaired by a party other than RoboteX, Inc.

    Do not modify any components on the robot by yourself. Doing so may cause permanent damage not covered by your warranty.

    Do not place fingers in between the tracks or flippers when the unit is powered on. Keep fingers and other body parts away from moving parts at all times.

    Care should be taken when running the Avatar®III Arm near pedestrians, small children, or objects that can be harmed. Be aware of your and the robot’s surroundings at all times.

    AC Adapter Handling: Use only the supplied AC adapter. Do not use any other unauthorized AC adapters. Damage to robot and battery may occur from use of alternate AC adapters.

    FCC Caution: This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and may cause

    interference to external reception if not installed and used properly in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

    Before switching payloads/accessories on the robot, make sure the battery is unplugged

    and the unit is powered down.

    Introduction to the AVATAR® Gas and Radiation Detector Mount

    The AVATAR® Gas and Radiation Detector Mount allows the user to mount

    and remotely view data from the MultiRAE Pro, MultiRAE, or MultiRAE Lite

    detectors mounted on the Avatar robot. Using the robot as a mobile base,

    the user can navigate the detector into a hazardous scenario and collect gas

    and radiation level data. The mount only supports the listed detectors.

    Setup & Use Instructions

    Please read the main AVATAR®III User Manual BEFORE proceeding with use of

    mount. The manual was included with your robot purchase.

    A) Preparing the Detector Mount

    1. The mount is comprised of four pieces – a top cover, a base, a detector bracket, and a USB

    bracket. First, take off the top cover by using a flat head screw driver and partially unscrewing

    the smaller screws (as pictured below). There are 2 in total, located on either side of the mount.

    Take off the cover and set aside.

    2. The detector bracket can be positioned in 3 different configurations to accommodate

    other payloads if necessary. This bracket can be moved by loosening the 4 flat head screws

    on the base of the mount and sliding the bracket off, then reattaching by putting it back on

    in one of the other locations on the bracket and tightening down the screws again. Decide

    on one configuration and make sure the detector bracket screws are tightened down

    properly. The “Fore Configuration” is the default.

    Note: Make sure that the rubber bumper is always facing toward the front of the robot in

    the Fore and Aft configs. It is easy to put the bracket on backwards.

    3. Next to install the detector first make sure the clear plastic filter is properly attached over the gas pump input. It twists on and off. Do NOT use the detector without attaching the

    filter. Note that the detector unit must be charged for >12 hours before use. Make sure

    the detector is turned on and working properly before installing in the mount. Once

    installed in the mount, there is no access to the power button.

    FOR A FULL EXPLANATION OF HOW TO USE AND READ THE DETECTOR, PLEASE REFER TO

    THE MULTIRAE USER MANUAL INCLUDED WITH THE DETECTOR.

    4. Take the Travel Charger (M01-3021-000) that comes with the MultiRAE detector and plug

    it into the detector. Make sure the smaller end of the USB cord is also connected.

    5. Loosen both screws on the USB guard on the mount and slide the small bracket

    over to the side so you can plug the USB cable into the mount. When fully plugged

    in, then slide the bracket back over to hold the connector in place and retighten

    down the screws.

    6. Next, with the rubber straps out of the way loop the excess cable and set at the

    base of the bracket and then place the detector face down on top of the cables into

    the mount as shown. Again make sure the detector is ON before placing in mount.

    7. Pull the straps snugly around the detector and fasten by inserting the blue buckle into the

    corresponding hole on the other belt strap.

    8. Once the detector is secured inside the bracket, the mount cover can be reattached. Slip

    the cover over the top making sure to route the USB cable through the slot on the top

    cover so it doesn’t get pinched (see above). Secure by tightening down the two flat head

    screws on either side of the bracket. The mount is now ready to install on the robot.

    B) Attaching the Mount onto the Robot

    9. The robot must be powered off (battery removed) before taking off or putting on the

    Detector Mount or any other robot payloads. Remove the payload cover off the payload bay #2 (the one closer to the antenna).

    10. To install the detector on the robot, line up the large 25 pin connector on the bottom of the mount with payload alignment pins in payload bay 2. Press the detector into place on the robot and fasten the 4 large payload screws on each corner of the detector mount with a flat head screw driver. Be careful to not over tighten and strip the screw heads. If used with the PTZ, install the PTZ in payload bay 2 and the mount in payload bay 1.

    11. Once the detector is fully secured, put the battery into the robot and close the door to power up. Turn on the handheld controller.

    C) Operate the Detector on the robot.

    12. To see the gas detector values on the screen of the controller, press and hold the green

    payload button at the center of the controller until the detector values appear in the upper

    left hand corner of the screen (~8 sec).
