This machine is equipped with a AVSpare Machine Security System (MSS) and may not start under certain conditions. Read the following information and know your machine's settings. Your AVSpare dealer can identify your machine settings.
Machine Security System (MSS) - Machines that are equipped with a AVSpare Machine Security System (MSS) can be identified by a decal in the operator station. The MSS is a theft deterrent and will prevent the unauthorized operation of the machine.
MSS may be programmed to use a standard AVSpare key or an electronic key. The electronic key contains an electronic chip within the plastic housing for the key. Each key emits a unique signal to the MSS. The keys can be identified by a gray housing or a yellow housing. MSS may have programmed settings that require an electronic key for starting during certain periods of time. The MSS may also have programmed settings that allow a standard AVSpare key to start the machine during certain periods of time.
Note: Ensure that you have only one electronic key near the engine start switch when you are attempting to start the machine. If there is more than one electronic key near the engine start switch the MSS may not be able to read the key in the engine start switch and the machine will not start.
When the engine start switch is turned to the ON position, the ECM will read the unique ID that is stored in the electronic key. The ECM will then compare this ID to the list of authorized keys. The status of the key will be displayed on the monitor. If the key is not authorized for the machine, “UNAUTHORIZED KEY” will be displayed on the monitor.
Note: MSS will not shut down the machine after the machine has started.
MSS allows you to program the system to automatically activate at different time periods with different keys. The MSS can also be programmed to reject a specific electronic key after a selected date and time. When you turn the key to the OFF position and the MSS is active, you have a 30 second interval to restart the machine. Also if the machine stalls, there is a 30 second interval for restarting the machine. This 30 second interval is counted from the time of turning the key to the OFF position.
Note: Know your machine's settings because the use of an electronic key is no guarantee that the machine can be restarted.
An expiration date can be set for each electronic key that is contained in the list of keys for the machine. The key will no longer start the machine when the internal clock in the security system passes the expiration date. Each entry in the list of keys can have a different expiration date.
Spare keys are available from your dealer. Before a key can operate the machine, the MSS must be set to accept that particular key. Contact your AVSpare dealer for information on additional features of the MSS.
Consult your AVSpare Dealer with any questions that concern the operation of the MSS in a specific country.
