6. - ACTIVE FUNCTIONALITIES.

6.1 - Interior protection with ultrasonic volumetric sensor.

The system protects the vehicle interior with a volumetric ultrasonic sensor. Any attempt to get into the vehicle will be 
detected and the alarm will trigger.

6.2 - Perimetric protection with door open warning diagnostic.

The alarm will trigger by opening any door, boot and bonnet. Should you have left any door opened while arming, the 
system will signal it by 3 

fl

 ashes of the direction lights and 3 audible signals (5 audible signals if the arming/disarming 

audible signals function has been activated).

6.3 - Cable cutting protection 

(only for systems with back-up battery siren).

The alarm will trigger if the system is not power supplied (cutting of cables - battery disconnection) signalling the sabotage. 

6.4 - Engine crank inhibition.

As soon as the system is armed the engine cranking is not possible anymore. 

  
6.5 - Arming the system with the volumetric ultrasonic protection disabled .

This function allows to arm the system leaving temporarily disconnected the interior volumetric protection. The protection 
must be disabled any time you leave somebody or an animal in the vehicle. If you want to leave any window opened 
also disable the protection to avoid false alarms. All other protections remain active. 

To disable the volumetric protection proceed as follow:

switch the engine off being sure that the ignition switch has been turned to the OFF position. Within 5 s press the 
emergency panel pushbutton and keep it pressed until it will 

fl

 ash once to con

fi

 rm only the volumetric protection has 

been disabled. By keeping the pushbutton pressed the system will con

fi

 rm with two 

fl

 ashes that only the additional sensor 

input has been disabled, with three 

fl

 ashes for both of them disabled. The selected protection will remain disabled until 

the system will be disarmed. It will be automatically restored at the next arming.

Note: 

on some vehicles the system automatically disables the volumetric protection if any windows is left opened.

Ask your installer if this functionality is provided by the system 

fi

 tted on your vehicle.

7. - 

PROGRAMMABLE 

FUNCTIONS

.

To activate them refer to the “FUNCTIONS PROGRAMMING” table.

7.1 - Activation and volume adjustment of the audible arming and disarming signalling.

This function allows to activate a short duration audible signal to con

fi

 rm the system’s arming (1 beep) and disarming 

(2 beeps). 

7.2 - Passive arming.

The system will automatically arm after 30 s the ignition key has been switched off and the driver side door has been 
opened and closed, so only 30 s after the driver has left the vehicle.

7.3 - Auto re-arming.

The system will automatically re-arm after 115 s, it has been disarmed and no one door has been opened (nobody 
gets on the vehicle).

7.4 - Auto re-arming with doors locking.

As for auto re-arming, but doors will lock (if the CDL connections have been made).

7.5 - Passive engine starting inhibition.

The starting inhibition becomes active after 115 s the engine has been switched OFF. The cranking inhibition is immediately 
deactivated if the Driver Card is detected or when a correct emergency PIN Code has been digit on the emergency 
panel. This functionality is totally independent from the other ones.

7.6 -  Manual or automatic comfort window closing with Cobra remote control.

This is a native function of the vehicle, so at 

fi

 rst check if it is available. By keeping pressed the Cobra remote control 

pushbutton “A” you can close the windows from a distance in manual mode. If not you can ask your installer to 

fi

 t an 

additional module which allows the closing of windows by pressing and releasing the button “A” in automatic mode. 

Warning

: for safety reasons we recommend to close the windows remaining close to the vehicle.

7.7 - Anti hi-jacking.

This function prevents the vehicle for being stealing while driving. It has been studied to also guarantee the driver safety. 
If the driver is not recognized by the system he will be considered as not authorized to drive the vehicle. The system will 
generate an alarm sequence and it will prevent the vehicle to start again after it has been switched OFF.

During the normal usage of the vehicle the driver is recognized by the system in two ways:

-  

automatic

 by the Driver Card matched to the system (if provided);

-  

manual

 by entering with the emergency panel pushbutton the 

fi

 rst two digits of the PIN Code.

The driver recognition must happen any time the ignition key is turned to the ON position or when, with the ignition key 
already ON, the driver side door is opened and then closed to get off the vehicle. If the driver is not recognized within 
60 s the emergency panel LED starts

9.- FUNCTIONAL TEST.

During the 

fi

 rst 25 s after the system has been armed all protection functionalities can be tested without triggering an alarm.

Make the following tests during the 28 s inhibition time with the system armed:

open

 

then close one by one all doors and boot 

 -  Check if the system is con

fi

 rming with three audible signal, each  

door opening detection.

Check the proper functionality of the volumetric ultrasonic sensor 

- Make movements from the back seat, their 

detection will be con

fi

 rmed by a LED 

fl

 ashing.

Note

:

 

don’t check the proper functionality of the volumetric ultrasonic sensor with the windows opened as many CAN 

applications are automatically excluding this protection when the windows are left opened.

Open the bonnet then lock the vehicle with the remote control

 - While arming the system will indicate the bonnet 

opening with 3 

fl

 ashes of the direction lights and correspondingly with audible signals.This test is applicable only if the 

signal is detected from the CAN network or for systems wired siren.

Try to start the engine 

-  If the engine cranking wires have been connected the engine will not start. 

Warning

: on some 

vehicle by turning the ignition key ON the system will disarm (TP OK detection).

Check if the PIN emergency Code works properly

 - By correctly entering the PIN code the system disarms.

10. - CAN INDEX MANUAL SELECTION. 

The technical support could ask you to manually select  a different CAN INDEX of the brand which has been loaded in 
the main unit. To select a different CAN application (CAN INDEX) proceed as follows:

as soon as the system is powered  - in the disarming state - the emergency panel  LED 

fl

 ashes quickly for 5 s, during 

this time frame keep pressed the emergency panel pushbutton until it will go off then release it. The LED starts 

fl

 ashing 

slowly a number of time corresponding to the already set CAN INDEX (example 3 

fl

 ashes for CAN INDEX 3).

While the LED is 

fl

 ashing slowly, press brie

fl

 y the button of the emergency panel to switch to the next INDEX; each time 

you press the button the INDEX increases and so on. By pressing again when the last index has been selected the 
system will switch back to the 

fi

 rst one of the list. Wait for the LED of to con

fi

 rm the current INDEX selection.

Note1

: the same CAN INDEX can be used for many vehicle models, check the CAN INDEX table available on the web.

Note2

: there are four  PLIP index  available, check the vehicle speci

fi

 c PLIP installation sheet  or the PLIP application 

manual available on the web in the “Application Manuals” section.
