E-16
Power Supply
The Data Collector has both a main power supply (two AA (LR6)-size alkaline
batteries or a lithium-ion battery pack) and a backup power supply (lithium battery).
In this manual, the words "main battery" refer to both alkaline batteries and the
lithium-ion battery pack.
Low main battery power is indicated when the low voltage message appears on the LCD
screen. Replace the main battery or charge the battery pack as soon as possible after the
low voltage message appears.
[Warning]
■ Note Down Valuable Data
• Never remove both the main battery and backup battery at the same
time. Doing so causes all program settings and data in Data Collector
memory to be lost or changed. Data cannot be recovered once it is lost
or corrupted. Be sure to make back-up copies of all important data.
One way to do this is to use the optional Basic Cradle or Satellite
Cradle to transfer data to a computer.
Important!
• Never remove the main battery from the Data Collector while the power
is turned ON. Doing so can cause data in Data Collector memory to be
lost. Before you remove the battery, be sure to turn the Data Collector
OFF.
• Use only AA (LR6)-size alkaline batteries or the specified lithium-ion
battery pack specified for the DT-900.
• The lithium-ion battery pack discharges naturally during the time it
takes to get to you from the factory. Be sure to charge the battery pack
before you use it for the first time.
• Never allow the terminals of the lithium-ion battery to become shorted.
Doing so creates the danger of malfunction. Be sure to keep the
battery pack in its special case when transporting or storing it.
• Repeat charging of the lithium-ion battery pack gradually shortens its
ability to recharge. If you find that a fully charged battery pack
provides only little operation time, it probably means you need a new
battery pack.
• Whenever you do not plan to use the Data Collector for a long time,
load two new alkaline batteries or a fully charged battery pack into the
Data Collector to protect against power failure during non-use. Also,
load new batteries or a fully charged battery pack before using the
Data Collector after a long period of non-use.
• If the battery pack has been left over unused for a long period of time,
the capacity remained decreases due to spontaneous discharge or
chemical decomposition by the battery pack itself. If the battery pack
fails to hold its operating duration after it has been fully charged,
replace it with a new one. The battery pack may reach the end of its
service life.

Storage Temperature: –20°C to 60°C
Important! • If the charge indicator does not light during charging, remove the
battery pack and then re-attach it. If this does not solve the problem, it
means that the battery pack is defective and needs to be replaced.
• Use only the specified battery pack.
• Battery packs naturally discharge even when they are not loaded in the

[Warning]
■ Pay Attention To The Ambient Temperature When Charging The Battery Pack
• Temperature ranges for battery pack use, charging, and storage are
specified below. Temperatures outside these ranges create the danger
of deterioration of battery pack performance and shortening of its
service life, as well as fluid leakage and heat generation.
Operating Temperature: –5°C to 50°C
Charging Temperature: 0°C to 40°C
Storage Temperature: –20°C to 60°C
Important! • If the charge indicator does not light during charging, remove the
battery pack and then re-attach it. If this does not solve the problem, it
means that the battery pack is defective and needs to be replaced.
• Use only the specified battery pack.
• Battery packs naturally discharge even when they are not loaded in the
Data Collector. Use a battery pack as soon as possible after charging it.
• For best charging results, keep the Charger Unit, Data Collector and
battery pack contacts clean by periodically wiping them off with a
cotton swab or dry cloth.

Setting the Unit
The following describes how to set up the Basic Cradle, Satellite Cradle and Charger Unit.
You can set up these three types in one of two ways, on a wall or on a desktop.
To use the Basic Cradle / Satellite Cradle on a desktop
(example: Satellite Cradle)
1
Simply place the Satellite Cradle on a desk,
table, or any other flat, stable surface, rubber
feet down. You can even use the wood
screws to anchor the base onto a horizontal
surface. If you do not anchor the base, make
sure you locate the Satellite Cradle where
there is no danger of it falling. The nose guide
is needed when you are using the forwardfacing reader port model.
To hang the Basic Cradle / Satellite Cradle on a wall
(example: Satellite Cradle)
1
Attach the wall unit screw.
When you are using the down-facing reader
port model, remove the nose guide attached
to the Data Collector, and attach the wall unit
screw to A using the screws (supplied).
When you are using the forward-facing reader
port model, attach the wall unit screw to B
using the screws (supplied) with the nose
guide still attached.

Position the base on the wall where you want
to hang the Satellite Cradle, and use an awl
or some other sharp object to mark the
positions of the two wood screws.
Slip a spacer over each of the wood screws
and then drive the screws into the wall at the
positions you marked in the previous step.
Make sure that the spacers are oriented
correctly. You will not be able to hook the
Satellite Cradle onto the screws if the spacers
are backwards.
Re-attach the base to the Satellite Cradle,
orienting it upside-down from its original
mounting position when you removed it, and
secure it in place with the two screws.
Hook the Satellite Cradle onto the wall unit
screws in the wall, and slide it down to lock in
place.
Important!
• Be sure to check the wood screws periodically for looseness and
tighten if necessary after hanging the Satellite Cradle on a wall.
