When you have found a suitable location, using 
the ’L’ shaped mounting bracket as a template, 
drill between 2 and 4 pilot holes into the selected 
mounting surface for attaching the bracket using 
either the self-tapping screws or the nuts and bolts 

You will need to attach the bracket using at least 
2 screws or 2 nuts and bolts to ensure that the 
bracket is well secured. Remember that there is a 
lot of vibration within the engine compartment 
so it is very important that the S120R mounting 
bracket is secured correctly.

Mounting Notes

When mounting and connecting the power cables 
of the S120R always ensure that you mount the 
unit and cables away from any moving parts 
such as air-cooling fans or the fan belt. Always 
position the unit so that device and power cables 
do not interfere with any moving parts within the 
engine compartment or interfer with any part 
of the vehicle that could endanger you or your 
passengers. Please check that all surfaces are safe 
to drill through before beginning any work.

Setting Up iRadar S120R 

The S120R has been designed to be mounted 
under the bonnet, behind the vehicle’s grille or 
within an air intake at the front of the vehicle if 
appropriate using the ’L’ shaped bracket and screw 
pack provided.

Find a suitable mounting position for the detector, 
ensuring that the front of the unit has a clear 
view of the road ahead and is unobstructed by 
any metallic objects and that there is a sufficient 
mounting area to attach the ’L’ shaped fixing 
bracket. The S120R needs to be mounted in as 
horizontal a position as possible so that it is looking 
directly down the road ahead.

We recommend that you mount the detector either 
behind the vehicle’s grille (if the openings of the 
grille are at least 10mm in diameter) or within an air 
intake at the front of the vehicle. The S120R can be 
mounted anywhere at the front of the vehicle, but 
for optimum performance we suggest you mount 
it as close to the number plate of the vehicle as 

Connecting the iRadar S120R

The S120R is powered by wiring it directly to your 
vehicles 12v electrical system using the cable 
supplied  Firstly connect the positive side of the 
cable (Red) to a switched 12v ignition supply. 

This is a live that is On when the ignition is 
switched On and Off when the ignition is Off. 

The negative side of the lead (black) should 
be connected to a negative ground, so can be 
attached to any metal portion of the vehicles 
frame. The LED will blink red if the power 
connection has been completed successfully. This 
LED can be located near to the point where the 
power cable enters the rear of the device.

It is not advisable to connect the S120R directly 
to the vehicle battery as after long periods 
of vehicle inactivity the vehicle battery may 
become discharged.
