Battery Pack Installation & Removal
Do not over-tighten battery case screws.
Maximum torque should not exceed 7 in-lb.
Battery should be charged completely
(6 hours) before using the first time.
6-32 screws with
7/64” hexagonal socket
µSD memory card
This card should only be replaced by Yokogawa part 1W9P780, or its successor, and only under the direction of
Yokogawa personnel. Use of a non-system memory card
will void safety certifications.
Recharging Cradle is not rated for intrinsic safety and should only be used in a non-hazardous area.
See the “Hazardous Area Use” section of the Control Drawing in the Instruction Manual IM 01R01A30-01EN.
Battery Pack Installation & Removal
Pack is held into the communicator by two standard 6-32 screws with hex sockets that require a 7/64” hex wrench. Do not over-tighten battery case screws
Installation: Set the communicator enclosure with the display downward on a flat stable surface. Rest the battery pack in the battery pack compartment of the enclosure leaving a ½”
gap between the battery pack and the connector on the communicator enclosure. Slide the battery pack upward along the enclosure until the connectors mate completely and the
screws are aligned with the threaded inserts on the communicator body. Thread the screws into the insert to complete the installation.
Removal: Reverse the order of the operations.
The battery pack contains an advanced battery fuel gauge that actively monitors the battery capacity and therefore does not require any “battery training” throughout the life of
the battery pack.
The Recharging Cradle is not intended to recharge a battery separately. To properly charge a battery pack it is required to be inserted into a communicator prior to being placed on
the charger.
Powering On the YHC5150X FieldMate Handheld Communicator
Push the power button for 1 full second, then release. After approximately 2 seconds a splash screen will appear & YHC5150X FieldMate Handheld Communicator application will load.
Connecting to a HART Device
The main system menu is the initial menu at power turn on. It is also accessible from any HART menu.
There are three distinct areas on a System Menu (Top, Center, Bottom)

HART Connections
HART Polling Address Range Selection
Allows you to select a range of addresses to
poll, or to select a tag or long tag to use in
polling for a HART enabled device.
HART Connection descriptions
Indicates that no device is detected in the active polling range. The communicator is still actively polling the HART address range you have
selected in the HART setup. If the poll address range is a single address, and a device is found at that address the communicator will
immediately initiate connection, and additional polling is terminated. If the poll address range is not a single address and a device is found the communicator will continually search
throughout the full range of addresses to find any available connections.
Indicates that multiple devices were found in the polling range and you must select which device to communicate with.
Pressing the
yellow icon will bring up a list box with all devices that were found in the polling address range. Once you choose a device and press
“Accept”, the box will collapse and the communicator will initiate connection.
Indicates that the device selected is connecting and the Device Description (DD) is loading.
Initialization is complete and a device is actively connected to the HART network. The communicator does not continue to poll for other
devices. If the green bar is selected the communicator will exit the system menus and go to the online HART menu.
Online HART Menu - (SDC-625)
HART Device Menus are only accessible when a HART communication enabled device is connected and communicating with the YHC5150X FieldMate Handheld Communicator.
There are four distinct areas on a HART menu (Top, Middle Left, Middle Right, Bottom)
Battery Level, Time

HART Menu Path
User defined test fields (such
as HART parameters like
Tag and Long Tag, file
names, and shortcut labels)
do not support multiple
language translations.
**Please, read the User’s Manual for detailed description of all menus and features.**
It is invalid to create a
shortcut on the home menu
(often labeled “Online”). If a
primary menu has
submenus (designated by 0
–MORE- in the tenth line)
the shortcut created will be
to the primary menu
regardless of the submenu
currently being displayed.
Any online modifications to parameters done prior to restoring a configuration that were not committed to the device are lost, if those parameters are in the stored
Serious injury or death may result from explosions. Before making electrical connections to an Intrinsically Safe model at the HART jacks, verify the HART
instrument of interest is installed in accordance with intrinsically safe field wiring practices.
Note: Restrictions apply to the use of Intrinsically Safe units in hazardous areas. Refer to the Intrinsic Safety Control Drawing in the Instruction Manual IM 01R01A30-01EN
Yokogawa reserves the right to revise the Intrinsic Safety Control Drawing in the Instruction Manual IM 01R01A30-01EN without notice.
Contact Yokogawa (phone 800.888.6400) for the current Intrinsic Safety Control Drawing.
For Intrinsically Safe model YHC5150X, consult the Intrinsic Safety Control Drawing in the Instruction Manual IM 01R01A30-01EN for restrictions, for special instructions in use, and
for electrical connections allowed.
For Intrinsically Safe model YHC5150X, verify the instruments in the loop are installed in accordance with intrinsically safe field wiring practices before making
connection from the field device to the Unit’s loop communication jack. See the Hazardous Area Use Section of this manual and the Intrinsic Safety Control
Drawing in the Instruction Manual IM 01R01A30-01EN.
Note the following WARNINGS and REQUIREMENTS for YHC5150X models:
Substitution of components may impair Intrinsic Safety
To prevent ignition of flammable or explosive atmospheres;
 Disconnect power before servicing
 Do not use battery charger in a hazardous atmosphere.
 DO NOT attempt to open the battery pack and replace the batteries.
Do not subject the batteries to intense heat. This could cause overheating, fire, rupture or explosion.
If an electric shock is felt when touching the charger or YHC5150X docked in the charger, unplug charger immediately from outlet. Remove the YHC5150X
from the charger immediately after you determine it is safe.
If there is any deformation, cracks or other damage to the charger base, power cord, or power adapter, unplug the charger and discontinue use.
Do not disassemble or modify any component. This could cause failure or injury, invalidate certification and void the warranty.
Plug power adapter directly into an outlet. Do not use power adapter with an extension cord.
