Operating the CALLTRONIC The CALLTRONIC is an operating element, to remotely operate the heater with a DTMF telephone or mobile phone via the GSM network from a distance. You can select between the heating and ventilation operating modes. The following setting times are available for the heating period: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. If preselected mode is required, a mini clock must be used instead of the push-button.
General operating information • The voice output has to be waited for before entering the numeric key, otherwise the function of the key will be ignored. • The connection is terminated after 30 seconds without input. • Reset PIN: If you have forgotten your PIN number for setting up the connection to the CALLTRONIC, you can reset it as follows: 11. Sit in the vehicle. 12. Switch off the heater if it is switched on. 13. Phone the CALLTRONIC using the telephone. 14. Use the push-button or the mini clock to switch the heater on following the voice output “Enter PIN“ within 30 seconds. At the end of the 30 seconds, the heater must be switched on, otherwise the programme is aborted and the process has to be repeated. 15. Wait until the voice output “PIN invalid“. 16. Voice output “Enter PIN“. 17. Enter the PIN number “0000“. 18. Voice output “Enter PIN“. 19. Enter the PIN number “0000“ again. 10. Voice output “PIN OK“. 11. Voice output “Input function“. The PIN number “0000“ is now stored for starting the device. You can change the PIN number at any time, as described in the table on Page 5.
Hazard! • Pacemakers and hearing aids can be negatively influenced. • The SIM card and the SIM cardholder can be removed at any time – small children could swallow them.

Please note! • When calling the CALLTRONIC, additional costs are incurred due to the telephone charges. • The range depends on the network operator (“radio hole” – transmission gaps). • It is important that the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions and regulations for the installation and operation of a mobile phone or GSM module are observed and complied with. • The CALLTRONIC can only be operated with an external GSM outdoor antenna in vehicles with a metalised windscreen.
The following 3 operating modes are available 2. Combination with mini clock
Note: If malfunctions occur in the heater during operation (e.g. due to a lack of fuel), these can be interrogated after the malfunction has occurred using Function 6 (where the diagnosis cable is connected). The malfunction is corrected with the aid of the operating instructions for the heater.
The function keys 0 to 3 and 5 to 7 are active (see following table). The functions of the function key 4 (Select operating mode) are taken over by the mini clock (see installation and operating instructions for the mini clock). When switching on the heater via the mini clock, the operating mode last set with the mobile phone is always activated. If a malfunction occurs in the heater, the reading in the mini clock display changes between the time and “--“. If the CALLTRONIC is connected with the mobile phone, “--“ appears in the mini-clock display.
1. Stand-alone operation The function keys 0 to 7 are active at the telephone (see the following table). The push-button installed can be used to switch the heater on or off. If the heater is switched on using the push-button, the heating function is activated with a duration of 40 mins. The push-button also functions without a SIM card. The push-button flashes if an error occurs in the heater.
3. Combination with
When combined with the CALLTRONIC, the mini controller only serves to specify the set value. Select heating mode at the mini controller. The red LED in the mini controller only serves as an operating display – not as an operating mode display – the operating mode is selected via the remote control.
Operating the heater via the numeric keys on the telephone If the PIN No. is wrong, the following message appears:
You first have to set up a connection between the telephone and the CALLTRONIC.
To do this, dial the number assigned to you by your network operator.
You now have the opportunity to enter the correct PIN No.
The CALLTRONIC signals the following text: “Eberspächer heater – Input PIN“.
If the PIN No. is correct, the following message appears:
Now enter the 4-digit PIN No. (The PIN is set to 0000 in the works).
“PIN OK – Input command“. You can now enter your settings for the heater via the CALLTRONIC. The following table on Pages 4 and 5 shows which functions are available to you.

Installation Instructions Installing the CALLTRONIC
Please note! • The SIM card should be able to be replaced even when installed. • Please ensure that you observe and comply with the instructions and regulations of the vehicle manufacturer with respect to the installation and operation of a mobile phone or GSM module.
The CALLTRONIC is only installed in the inside of the vehicle in accordance with the installation drawing. Wherever possible, the installation position should not be subjected to direct sunlight.
ቢ CALLTRONIC ባ SIM cardholder ቤ Push-button with LED
Attaching the windscreen antenna The windscreen antenna is attached to the inside of the windscreen or rear window.
Assembly: Before sticking on the windscreen antenna ቤ, the relevant position on the screen ባ should be cleaned using the enclosed cloth and should be dry. Pull off the protective strip from the sticky tabs. Install the antenna cable to the CALLTRONIC ቢ and connect.
Insert the SIM card You must insert the SIM card before you can use the CALLTRONIC: ቢ To release the lock on the SIM cardholder, press the yellow button – the SIM cardholder springs out a bit. ባ Pull out the SIM cardholder. ቤ Insert SIM card with chip (contacts) facing upwards. ብ Re-insert the SIM cardholder in the appliance, until it locks into place. Note: Only SIM cards without a PIN and with 3-volt technology can be used.
Installation of the operating elements
Insert the fuse and check the function
Push-button Fit the enclosed push-button in the view of the driver (Drill hole 10 mm, max. wall thickness 2.5 mm). Connect the cables in accordance with the circuit diagram.
The operating element must be connected and fully functioning before inserting the fuse. Insert the CALLTRONIC (5 A) fuse and check the function of the CALLTRONIC after approx. 30 seconds (time until the GSM module has signed on to the network) with a telephone or mobile phone.
Mini-clock (Option) Install the mini clock (separate add-on) in accordance with the instructions supplied. Connect the cables in accordance with the circuit diagram.
Please note! The heater diagnosis cable (blue / white) must be connected for fault recognition (only for trade appliances – retrofit). The operating element must be connected and fully functioning before inserting the fuse. The appliance detects whether a push-button or a mini-clock is connected when the voltage supply is applied for the first time. The CALLTRONIC does not accept subsequent changes.
