The Motion® C5v and Motion F5v are portable, semi-rugged pen-based computers
designed for health care, manufacturing, utilities, warehousing, field service workers, or
anyone else that needs the mobility and flexibility of a tablet computer.
The C5v and F5v integrate traditional computer features with digital ink, data capture, and
speech recognition. The C5v and F5v differ from convertible and slate devices in the
following ways:
•
Minimize ports and connectors, creating a semi-sealed device that is easy to clean and
disinfect.
•
Include several built-in data capture technologies—such as a RFID reader, camera, and
bar code scanner—that eliminate the need for external devices.
•
Deliver an optimal balance of performance and portability.
If you have never used a pen-based computer, use the information in this section to get
started. If you are already familiar with pen-based computers, skip to the next chapter to
learn about the features of the C5v and F5v.
Note: Because you typically use a pen instead of a mouse with tablet computers, we use the
term tap instead of click in most situations.

Chapter 4 Care and Maintenance
Cleaning in a health care environment
This section describes the cleaning procedures for the tablet PC in a health care
environment.
Disinfecting procedures
You should periodically disinfect the system according to the institutional polices of surface
and equipment safety and cleanliness. Motion has tested a variety of antimicrobial solvents
and information on specific products is available upon request.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “items that do not ordinarily
touch the patient or touch only intact skin are not involved in disease transmission, and
generally do not necessitate disinfection between uses on different patients”.1 We
recommend using an EPA-approved low-level disinfectant when general cleaning is
required. For a list of cleaning solutions tested by Motion Computing, see “Cleaning
solutions” on page 54.
If the system becomes soiled with blood or other body fluids, a hospital-approved low-level
disinfectant that is tuberculocidal/virucidal when used at recommended dilutions and
contact times can be used.
Visibly soiled areas should first be cleaned and then disinfected, or a detergent disinfectant
can be used. For disinfection, the cleaned areas should be moistened with the appropriate
germicide and allowed to air dry.2
If the system is used with patients who are infected or colonized with vancomycin-resistant
enterococci or other drug-resistant microorganisms judged by the infection control
program (based on current state, regional, or national recommendations, to be of special or
clinical or epidemiologic significance or with highly virulent microorganisms such as Ebola
or Lassa), then the unit should be dedicated to one patient or patient cohort or subjected to
low-level cleaning between patient uses.1
Training and documentation considerations
All users of tablet computers in the health care environment should be provided with
training on proper cleaning procedures. Cleaning procedures should be added to the
institution's policies and procedures for infection prevention.
1. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Sterilization or Disinfection of Medical Devices-General
Principles.” 2002.
<www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/bp_sterilization_medDevices.html> (20 Sept. 2006).
2. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Sterilization or Disinfection of Patient-Care Equipment-HIV
Related.” 2000.
<www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/bp_sterilization_patient_care.html> (20 Sept. 2006).

tablet PC.
If you are concerned whether a cleaner or disinfectant will harm your tablet PC, contact
Motion Computing support.
Cleaning the fingerprint reader
Under normal circumstances, you should clean the fingerprint reader once a month, or
whenever necessary.
To clean the fingerprint reader
1. Shut down the system, unplug it, and remove the battery.
2. Lightly spray a cotton swab with household window cleaner.
3. Gently rub the sensor surface with the cotton swab, slowly rotating the swab so a new,
clean surface of the swab is constantly exposed to the sensor surface. Do not allow
cleaner to drip or run down into the electronics around the sensor.
Do not use bleach, solvents, or abrasives. Do not spray or pour any liquid directly on the
sensor.
4. After cleaning, gently rub the surfaces again with a clean, dry cotton swab. Use a clean
swab each time you clean the sensor.
54
Chapter 4 Care and Maintenance
Pen
•
Store the pen in the pen holder or in a case when not in use.
•
Do not store the pen vertically on the tip. Constant pressure on the tip can affect the
pen-to-digitizer interaction.
•
Change the pen tip regularly. See “Replacing pen tips” on page 55.
•
Do not immerse the pen in liquid. It contains electronic components that could be
damaged.
•
In certain environments, particles or debris can stick to the pen tip or the display. To
avoid damaging the display, clean it frequently with the provided cleaning cloth. Also,
change pen tips regularly, especially if you drop the pen onto a rough surface that could
damage the tip or embed debris in it. Damaged pen tips can scratch the display.
Replacing pen tips
Pen tips eventually wear down or get damaged, so the pen includes extra tips and a tool for
replacing them.
With typical use, you should change the pen tip every 90 days. If you use the pen in a dirty
environment, you should change the pen tip every 30 days. Particles can become
embedded in the pen tip and scratch the display.
To replace the pen tip
1. Grasp the old tip with the replacement tool. Use the notch on the ring to grab the tip.
2. Pull the old tip out of the pen.
3. Insert a new tip, placing the flat end of the pen tip in first.
4. Apply slight pressure to push the tip in to place.
Ordering new pens
To order additional pens, go to the Motion Computing accessories page at
https://store.motioncomputing.com/.

Traveling with the system
Use the following tips when you travel with the system.
•
Remove all accessories and cables. Remember to pack those you will need while
traveling, including at least one pen.
•
Put the unit into a case to protect the display.
•
Protect the pen by keeping it in the pen holder or in a case during travel.
•
Pack the unit securely in a briefcase or hand-carried luggage, and keep it separate from
toiletries, liquids, and food. Do not pack it in checked luggage.
•
Keep the system stable during travel. Secure it to prevent it from sliding around in
overhead bins and car trunks.
•
Before extended use in the field or long trips away from AC power, adjust the power
properties to maximize battery conservation. You can adjust the power properties from
Motion Dashboard. See “Using power management” on page 36.
•
For international travel, obtain and use the appropriate adapters for your destination’s
electrical outlets. A current converter is not necessary.
•
You may want to carry proof of ownership or a merchandise passport when traveling
internationally.
•
Consult your insurance company and credit card company to learn about emergency
travel assistance in case the system becomes lost or disabled.
Traveling by air
Use the following tips when traveling by air.
•
Have a fully charged battery in case security personnel ask you to start the system.
•
Have it hand-inspected or sent through the X-ray scanner, but never carry it through the
metal detector.
•
Turn off the system or place it in hibernation mode for takeoff and landing.
FAA Wireless air travel requirement
The FAA requires that you suspend wireless operations, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, before
boarding a plane.
DANGER: Do not transport Li-ion batteries in checked baggage. The baggage hold can get
very hot, which can overheat the Li-ion battery and result in an explosion. You can take up
to two spare batteries in carry-on luggage, in addition to the one in the unit. Transporting
batteries in checked baggage or transporting more than two spare batteries is a violation of
federal transportation regulations.
