5. POWER SUPPLY UNIT CONNECTION
Used batteries must be discarded according to appropriate local
ordinances or rules. When discarding batteries, insulate them by using
tape and so forth to prevent the battery terminals from short–circuiting.
To use commercially available alkaline dry cells in the externally–installed
battery case for the control unit to back up the SRAM memory of the Power
Mate i, connect the external battery by using the connector connected to the
lithium battery. The lithium battery, provided as standard, can be replaced
with external batteries in the battery case (A02B–0236–C281) according to
the battery replacement procedures described above.
Install the battery case (A02B–0236–C281: 14–m cable) in a safety location where the
batteries can be replaced even when the Power Mate i power is on.
The battery cable connector is attached to the control unit by means of a simple lock system.
To prevent the connector from being disconnected due to the weight of the cable or tension
within the cable, fix the cable section within 50 cm of the connector.
