A clean and moisture-free environment is preferred. Make room for air
circulation. Avoid areas with:
- Sudden or extreme changes in temperature.
- Extreme heat.
- Strong electromagnetic fields (near television set, motor rotation area, etc.).
- Dust or high humidity.
If it is necessary to work in a hostile environment, please regularly maintain your
computer by cleaning dust, water, etc. and keep it in optimal condition.
Ruggedness
The computer is designed with rugged features such as vibration, shock, dust,
and rain/water protection. However, it is still necessary to provide appropriate
protection while operating in harsh environments.
The computer is designed to withstand rainfall from top with mild wind blowing
only. Please keep the keyboard facing up, i.e. normal operating direction, to
maintain water resistance. NEVER immerse the unit in water, or spray water at
an upside-down system. Doing so may cause permanent damage.
The D-sub connector caps on the rear of the computer are for dust and shock
protection. The connectors are sealed internally. Other I/O ports and devices on
the left or right must have caps tightly closed or cable inlets sealed while exposed
to water or dust.
There are optional gaskets for DB-9 and DB-25 connectors. You may install
them to improve rain/dust/moisture resistance on your commercial type cable.
Insert the packing into the male connector (with pins) and fasten the screws.
All connectors will be corroded if exposed to water or moisture. Corrosion is
accelerated if power is ON. Please take proper water-resistant measures for cable
connections.
The DC jack and cables are sealed and may be operated with water splashing
while attached. All port covers should be in place when no cable is attached.
7
Useful Information
Operating Systems
The computer is compatible with most operating systems (OS). However, not all
functions are 100% compatible. For example, ACPI, APM, Smart Battery, etc.
are not available on DOS, Windows NT, and other non-Microsoft OS.
Consequently “Standby”, “Hibernation”, “Battery Gauge”, etc. would not work
under such operating systems.
ACPI: Advanced Configurations and Power Interface
APM: Advanced Power Management
For power consumption and heat dissipative consideration, ACPI OS
(Windows) is highly recommended. Set Power Options as ”Portable/Laptop”
in Control Panel to fully implement the power management features.
AC Adapter
The AC adapter performs two functions:
- It powers the computer from an external AC source.
- It charges the computer battery.
The adapter automatically detects the AC line voltage (110V or 220V) and
adjusts accordingly.
The following are recommended when using the AC adapter:
- Use a properly grounded AC outlet.
- Use one AC outlet exclusively for the computer. Having other appliances on
the same line may cause interference.
- Use a power strip with built-in surge protection.
Connect the AC adapter:
1. Plug the AC cord to the adapter.
2. Plug the other end of the AC cord into the wall outlet. Make sure the green
LED on the adapter turns on.
3. Attach the DC plug into the power jack of the computer; turn the lock ring
clockwise to secure it.

Useful Information
Note: Battery characteristic varies depending on factors such as ambient
temperature, charging method, load current, aging, etc. For example,
the chemicals of the battery are more inactive at low temperature, thus
decreases the output power.
The battery gauge should only be used as a reference. Please do not
expect it to show the exact amount of the power remaining. There is no
memory effect on Lithium Ion battery cells. However, discharge the
battery to nearly empty every month will help calibrating the internal
gauge.
Charging the Battery
Plug in the AC adapter (or optional vehicle adapter) to start the battery charging.
If the battery is already full, the sense circuitry will stop high current charge
within several minutes.
There are two LED indicators next to the power indicator for the Primary and
Secondary battery respectively. Indicator turns ON when the battery is charging
and turns OFF when the battery charge is completed.
To charge the Secondary Battery, simply install it into the computer and attach
the AC adapter. The internal charger will charge the Primary and Secondary
batteries simultaneously.
Optional Dual Battery Charger can charge Primary and Secondary batteries
externally.
10
Useful Information
