Configuring the on/off button
You can switch the PG from normal mode to the following states using the on/off button
(Power button), by closing the display cover, or from the Windows Start menu:
● Standby mode (Save to RAM),
● Hibernate (save to disk), default setting
● Off (Windows is brought down).
When the device is brought down from Windows, the device automatically switches off. If the
device is not in Windows, it can be switched off using the on/off button.
Note
You can use Settings > Control Panel > Power Options in Windows XP to assign a response
to the on/off button and the lid. You can also assign these settings to the hot keys FN + F5
and Fn + F6.
To completely disconnect from the power supply network you must pull out the power cord
and dismantle the battery.
CAUTION
In accordance with the settings in the Windows Power Options, the Field PG supports
different operating states. The Power Options have been preset by the factory in such a
way that in the factory state the device always adopts defined operating states (On,
Standby, Hibernation, Off).
By changing these settings, and by adding extra hardware (such as USB components) or
software to the device, you can modify the operating states so that the device cannot switch
to Hibernation or Standby mode. Even though the screen display is dark, relevant
consumers remain switched on in the device.
Please remember to always bring down the Field PG or set it to Hibernation prior to
transporting in the backpack. When the device is in these states, all the status LEDs on the
device go off when you disconnect the power supply. This way you can ensure the device
is not switched on and the battery is not unintentionally discharged during transportation.
Press the on/off button briefly to reactivate the PG from Standby mode or Hibernation. In
Standby mode the device LED flashes, and in Hibernation all the displays are switched off.

Touchpad
Touchpad and mouse buttons
①
②
The touchpad can be used in many programs (with mouse operation) as an input device for
controlling the cursor and selecting menus. You can position the touch-sensitive cursor
anywhere on the screen.
Pressing the left mouse button selects an object. The response to the right button depends on
the user program.
Note
The touchpad function (mouse pointer and mouse buttons) can be enabled and disabled with
the hotkey Fn + F4.
You can configure the advanced touchpad functions under "Mouse" in the Windows Control
Panel. The technical principle used means that it is possible to make unintentional mouse
clicks with the touchpad when it is used in a "noisy" environment. In such environments, it is
a good idea to disable the tap function in the touchpad driver, and to use the mouse buttons.
3.5.2.3
Keyboard
Keyboard arrangement
The keyboard is divided into the following function groups:
● Alphanumeric keyboard field with hotkeys
● Function keys
● Control keys
Repeat function
All the keys of the keyboard are equipped with a repeat function, i.e. the character is
repeated for as long as the key is pressed.

Alphanumeric keyboard field
The largest block of keys is the alphanumeric keyboard with all the keys for letters, numerals
and special characters. The arrangement of the characters essentially corresponds to that of
a normal typewriter. However, there are a few keys that undertake specific special functions
for the PG.
Key
Function
Caps Lock
The caps lock key activates uppercase mode. All the characters are then
output as capital letters. With a multiple labeled key, the upper left
character is displayed. You can switch off the caps lock by pressing the
shift key.
Num Lock key
This toggles the emulated numerical keypad between alphanumeric keys
and number keys. The LED display lights up.
Scroll Lock

Transport
Before you set off
Observe the following information when you are traveling with the PG:
● Save important data from the hard drive.
● For safety reasons, switch off the radio components (Wireless LAN) if you can´t be sure
that the transmitted radio waves will not interfere with any electric or electronic equipment
in your vicinity.
● If you want to use your PG during a flight, first of all ask the airline company if you are
permitted to do so.
● When traveling abroad, ensure the power adapter can be used with the local mains
voltage. If this is not the case, you must acquire the appropriate adapter for your PG. Do
not use any other voltage transformers!
NOTICE
If you are traveling to a different country, check to see if the local voltage and the power
cord specifications are compatible. If this is not the case, purchase a power cable that
complies with the local conditions. Do not use connection adapters for electrical
appliances in order to connect the PG to them.
If you are using the modem, there could be incompatibilities with the local
telecommunications system.
CAUTION
The integrated WLAN is approved for use in certain countries, depending on which
configuration you ordered. This information is shown in your order documentation.

Notes on operation
7.3.1
Rechargeable battery
Battery operation
The battery (lithium ion) enables mobile use of the device, independently of an external
power supply. It also protects against data loss in the even of a power failure.
NOTICE
You should install the battery before you connect the device to the power supply. Use only
the battery supplied with the device.
As soon as the external power supply is connected, the battery will start charging. In doing
so, the following conditions are important:
● When the device is switched off the charging process takes around 3 hours.
● When the device is switched on, the charging process takes between 3 and 6 hours
(depending on the system load).
● The charging process is terminated as soon as the battery is fully charged.
● A charged battery will discharge itself during storage (depending on the temperature, and
whether or not it is installed) in roughly 2 - 4 months. It will then have to be recharged.
● The battery charging is terminated when the battery is fully charged or if, for example, the
upper temperature limit for charging is exceeded. You can check the battery charge level
in Windows.
If, with a connected power supply, the battery LED lights up green, the battery is full and will
not be charged any further.
NOTICE
If the device is going to be out of use for a long period (> 1 week), switch the Field PG off
after use, and remove the battery.
During commissioning, the battery can become partially or fully discharged (e.g. from selfdischarge). Prior to completion of the discharge, when merely a residual charge is existent,
the LED battery in the battery operation lights up red as a warning. End your work and save
your data. There are now only a few minutes battery running time left.
Please note that for a complete disconnection from the mains the mains connector must be
removed.

7.3 Notes on operation
Information
The capacity of the lithium ion battery used in the PG reduces with each charge/discharge;
this is inherent in the technology. A gradual reduction in capacity also takes place if stored at
too high or too low temperatures. The operating times of one battery charge in a networkindependent operation can therefore gradually reduce over time.
The battery has a typical life span of c. 300 charges and is therefore designed in such a way
that with standard handling within six months after purchase of your PG it can still be
charged and discharged. A loss of capacity over time is technology-dependent and, as with
all manufacturers of comparable devices, it is excluded from the warranty. In the case of a
significant drop of efficiency we recommend that you replace the battery. Buy only original
Siemens batteries.
You should note the following with regard to the life span of the battery:
● If possible, the battery should always be completely discharged/charged.
● Frequency of use: The more often the battery is used, the faster it reaches the end of its
effective life span. A lithium ion battery has a typical life of around 300 charge cycles.
● If the computer is almost always connected to the mains power supply, the battery should
be removed from the computer (but fully charged) and stored elsewhere.
WARNING
Do not dismantle or damage. Batteries can cause combustion.
Do not light or heat up. Batteries can cause combustion, can explode or release toxic
substances.
Do not short circuit. This can cause combustion. Keep away from children.
WARNING
Always replace the battery with another battery of the same type. The battery is
available as a spare part. You will find the ordering data in the catalog.
7.3.2
Bluetooth dongle
The Bluetooth dongle is used for communication with Bluetooth devices, such as a headset,

● If you are using Windows XP, the following applies:
To fully utilize the functionality of our DVD±R/±RW drive, you will have to install additional
software (DVD burner or player software). This software is included on the CD supplied
with the device. Insert the CD in the drive, run setup and follow the instructions on the
screen.
● You can use the Windows Server 7 operating system to burn data carriers. A separate
burner software is not supplied for this reason.
Information on burning CD-RWs or DVD±RWs
CAUTION
Danger of data loss!
Burning is permissible only in an undisturbed environment, i.e. shock and vibration stress
must be avoided. Because of heavy fluctuation in the quality of CD-Rs, data may be
corrupted in a burning session, even if no error message is initially displayed. The written
data can only be verified by comparing these with the source. To be on the safe side, data
should be verified after every burning session.

7.3.10
Wireless LAN
7.3.10.1
General information regarding WLAN
The Field PG is equipped with a network card for Wireless LAN (WLAN), i.e. you are not
assigned to a cable network. With WLAN, the same as with cable network, you have access
to files, the printer and to the Internet.
Depending on the surrounding conditions, you can create connections through walls or at
distances in the open air of up to 100 m. The built-in network card works in accordance with
the latest standards:
● IEEE 802.11 a: The maximum data rate that is theoretically possible with optimum
ambient conditions, and low power utilization is 11 Mbps.
● IEEE 802.11 b: The maximum data rate that is theoretically possible with optimum
ambient conditions, and low power utilization is 11 Mbps.
● IEEE 802.11 g: The maximum data rate that is theoretically possible with optimum
ambient conditions, and low power utilization is 54 Mbps.
● IEEE 802.11 n: The maximum data rate that is theoretically possible with optimum
ambient conditions and low power utilization is 300 Mbps.
The IEEE standard offers two modes of operation, the adhoc mode (Peer to Peer) and the
infrastructure mode.
Adhoc mode
The adhoc network refers to a wireless network that is established directly between several
computers, whereby all computers must have a WLAN facility. No additional devices are
necessary.
Infrastructure mode
The infrastructure network uses access points to connects computers to wired networks with
the aid of Wireless LAN. These can be a local network (e.g., company networks) or a global
network (e.g., Internet).
More detailed information on configuring and operating the Wireless LAN can be found in the
online help of the WLAN network adapter.

Safety information for WLAN operation
The radio waves necessary for Wireless LAN can cause interference in hearing aids and in
the onboard electronics of vehicles. To prevent interference, switch off the Field PG in
aircraft, or when driving a vehicle.
The radio waves caused by wireless LAN can interfere with life-support systems, so you
should switch off the WLAN device when in the vicinity of such systems (use hotkey Fn + F3
to disable the Field PG's WLAN).
CAUTION
To prevent adverse effects on pacemakers, a minimum distance of 20 cm from pacemakers
should be maintained while the WLAN is in use.
NOTICE
Please note that the device is not suitable for operation in potentially explosive
atmospheres.
The range and the attainable data transmission rate depends on the environment. A
Wireless LAN connection is not bug-proof.
To protect the transmitted data, Wireless LAN has different encoding methods. We
recommend that you activate an encoding in accordance with your Wireless LAN
environment.
If possible, do not bring the WLAN connection in the vicinity of the following devices:
● Microwaves
● Wireless video-audio transmission systems
● Wireless telephones (DECT)
These can lead to interference or the complete breakdown of the WLAN connection.
CAUTION
The integrated WLAN is approved for use in certain countries, depending on which
configuration you ordered. This information is shown in your order documentation.

Problems with Wireless LAN
The following lists the possible causes for problems with Wireless LAN:
Cannot connect with WLAN

Check that you have enabled the WLAN.
You can toggle the WLAN on and off with the hotkey Fn + F3.

Check that the other WLAN partner is active.

Check the settings of the WLAN connection.
Follow the instructions on configuring and operating the WLAN in the online help for the WLAN
network adapter.
Data transmission speed is too low

Please note that the data rate stipulated and visible under Windows is only a theoretical value /
corresponds to the gross value. Determined by the transmission procedure, the actual applicable
data rate for the data transmission is usually around 50% of the gross value.

The maximum data transmission speed is dependent on many factors.
First check that all the network components conform to the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standard and that
this method of transmission is set.

72
The spatial arrangement of the network components can also negatively influence the
transmission.
– The distances between the components should be as short as possible.
– Masonry or reinforced concrete walls have a negative effect on the transmission performance
and can, under some circumstances, prevent a connection from being established. For the
best performance, a line-of-sight connection of the network components is preferred.
– A high load on the network, perhaps from too many simultaneous access attempts from
different nodes, can lead to lower data rates or communication problems.

Troubleshooting/FAQs
12.2 Problems with Wireless LAN
Operation in the environment with EMC interference
On rare occasions higher interference potential in the vicinity of the Field PG M3 may result
in malfunctions of the integrated touchpad.
The malfunction manifests itself in the triggering of unintentional key clicks or delays in the
movement of the cursor. In such cases we recommend eliminating the cause of the
interference or establishing a greater distance to the source of the interference.
If working in an interference-prone environment cannot be avoided, deactivate the tap
function (mouse button emulation) by using the touchpad driver. Afterwards use the
touchpad keys below the touchpad for operation.
NOTICE
Modem disconnection
Faults in the phone line caused by a lightning strike (surge) can cause the modem to be
disconnected.
Re-establish the connection after the cause has been eliminated.
Procedure – deactivating the tap function of the touchpad
1. Click "Start" and open the "Control Panel".
2. In the "Category view" first select "Printers and other hardware" and then the "Mouse"
menu. In the "classical view" you can select the "Mouse" menu directly.
3. Select the "Device settings" tab and click the "Settings" tab.
4. Select the "Tap" button and deactivate the "Activate tapping" check box.
5. Click "Apply".

ESD guidelines
B
Definition of ESD
All electronic modules are equipped with large-scale integrated ICs or components. Due to
their design, these electronic elements are highly sensitive to overvoltage, and thus to any
electrostatic discharge.
The electrostatic sensitive components/modules are commonly referred to as ESD devices.
This is also the international abbreviation for such devices.
ESD modules are identified by the following symbol:
CAUTION
ESD devices can be destroyed by voltages well below the threshold of human perception.
These static voltages develop when you touch a component or electrical connection of a
device without having drained the static charges present on your body. The electrostatic
discharge current may lead to latent failure of a module, that is, this damage may not be
significant immediately, but in operation may cause malfunction.

ESD guidelines
Electrostatic charging
Anyone who is not connected to the electrical potential of their surroundings can be
electrostatically charged.
The figure below shows the maximum electrostatic voltage which may build up on a person
coming into contact with the materials indicated. These values correspond to IEC 801-2
specifications.

Electrostatic voltages on an operator
Basic protective measures against electrostatic discharge
● Ensure good equipotential bonding:
When handling electrostatic sensitive devices, ensure that your body, the workplace and
packaging are grounded. This prevents electrostatic charge.
● Avoid direct contact:
As a general rule, only touch electrostatic sensitive devices when this is unavoidable (e.g.
during maintenance work). Handle the modules without touching any chip pins or PCB
traces. In this way, the discharged energy can not affect the sensitive devices.
Discharge your body before you start taking any measurements on a module. Do so by
touching grounded metallic parts. Always use grounded measuring instruments.

the PCI bus, and the external interfaces.
Cold restart
A start sequence, starting when the computer is switched on. The system usually performs
some basic hardware checks within the cold start sequence, and then loads the operating
system from the hard disk to work memory -> boot
COM interface
The COM interface is a serial V.24 interface. The interface is suitable for asynchronous data
transfer.
Compact Flash cards (CF)
Compact Flash is a digital storage medium in card format and without moving parts. The CF
card contains the non-volatile memory and the controller. The interface of the CF card
corresponds with the IDE interface. CF cards can be operated without additional electronics
on PCMCIA or IDE hard disk controllers using a plug and socket adapter. There are two
design forms: CF-I (42.6 x 36.4 x 3.3 mm) and CF-II (42.8 x 36.4 x 5 mm).
Configuration files
These are files containing data which define the configuration after restart. Examples of such
files are CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT and the registry files .
Configuration software
The configuration software updates the device configuration when new modules are installed
. This is done either by copying the configuration files supplied with the module or by manual
configuration using the configuration utility.
Controller
Integrated hardware and software controllers that control the functions of certain internal or
peripheral devices (for example, the keyboard controller).
Device configuration
The configuration of a PC or programming device contains information on hardware and
device options, such as memory configuration, drive types, monitor, network address, etc.
The data are stored in a configuration file and enable the operating system to load the
correct device drivers and configure the correct device parameters. . If changes are made to
the hardware configuration, the user can change entries in the configuration file using the
SETUP program. .

Module
Modules are plug-in units for PLCs, programming devices or PCs. They are available as
local modules, expansion modules, interfaces or mass storage (Mass storage module).
Module retainer
The module retainer is used to fasten modules and ensure safe contact and transport.
Shocks and vibrations especially affect large, heavy modules. It is therefore recommended
to use the module retainer for this type of module. There are also short, compact and light
modules on the market. The module retainer was not designed for these modules because
the standard fastening is sufficient for them.
Motherboard
The motherboard is the core of the computer. Here, data are processed and stored, and
interfaces and device I/Os are controlled and managed.
NEC Class 2
The "NEC", National Electrical Code, is the USA collection of regulations that generally
correspond to German VDE 0100 standards. All USA standards governing the safety of
electrical equipment and corresponding "deviations" in IEC standards are based on NEC in
terms of their country-specific requirements.
NEC Class 2 specifies higher safety requirements for protection against electric shock and
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements for fire protection. Power supplies
operating within the range from 20 VDC to 30 VDC must be equipped with an internal current
limiting circuit which safely prevents output power higher than 100 VA.
Operating system
Generic term which describes all functions for controlling and monitoring user program
execution, distribution of system resources to the user programs and the operating mode in
cooperation with the hardware (for example Windows XP Professional).
Packet writing
