Positioning the X20 Console
1. The X20 console should be mounted in a position where minimal direct sunlight is directed onto the screen, generally elevated in
the cab and tilting down
2. The X20 console should be mounted so the heat sink is not
exposed to direct sunlight
3. The X20 console should be mounted as far from the window as possible; the X20 console requires adequate ventilation around
the console, this allows sufficient air-flow over the heat sink
4. Allow a clearance of at least 25mm (1”) around the X20 console
5. Fit the supplied RAM® mounting bracket securely to any metal base, preferably in your vision whilst the vehicle is moving
Options for Mounting the X20 Console

Management System
Understanding the X20 Power Management
System
The X20 console has an intelligent Power Management system. The
purpose of the system is to protect the integrity of the Compact Flash
carrying the Windows® XP operating system, application programs
loaded, and customer data. The Power Management system monitors
the external supply voltage and also the internal battery voltage and
then makes decisions about startup and shutdown of the X20 console.
There are two Status LED's embedded in the lower right front of the
case (Figure 5-1) which indicate the status of the Power Management
system. These LED's are multi-colored and indicate a range of
conditions.

X20 Console Manual
Understanding the RED Colored LED
External Supply Status
If the external supply status is displaying a RED colored Status
LED this indicates:
1. The X20 console is not connected to a good power source
• Check the Power Connector (Figure 4-3 on page 4-6) at the back of the X20 console is connected securely
• Check the X20 Power Harness (Figure 4-2
on page 4-4) is correctly and securely connected to the battery terminals
• Check that the fuse (Figure 4-2 on page 4-4) on the X20 Power Harness is not missing or blown.
2. The vehicle battery supplying power to the X20 voltage is
below 10.8 Volts. Rectify the problem so that the external
supply is above 10.8 Volts.

www.topconpa.com
X20 Console Manual
Internal Battery Status
If the internal battery status is displaying a RED colored Status
LED this indicates:
1. The internal battery inside the X20 console is below 9.0
Volts, and needs charging from an external supply source
TIP
TIP
The external supply Status LED must be displaying
an ORANGE or GREEN color before the internal
battery will start charging.
• If connected to an external supply source and the X20
console’s ambient temperature is between 0°Celsius(C)
and 50°C (32°F and 122°F) then the X20’s Power Management system will allow Fast Charging of the X20’s internal battery; when in Fast Charging mode it will take approximately 15 minutes to charge the internal battery sufficiently to allow startup of the X20, and therefore change the internal battery Status LED from RED to Orange
The Power Button on the X20 console can then be pressed and the X20 will startup
• If connected to an external supply source and the X20 console’s ambient temperature is below 0°C (32°F) OR above 50°C (122°F) then the X20’s Power Management System will NOT allow Fast Charging of the X20’s internal battery. Instead the X20’s Power Management
will only allow Trickle Charge to the internal battery. While in Trickle Charge mode it can take approximately 3 hours to charge the internal battery sufficiently, to allow startup of the X20, and change the internal Status LED’s from RED to ORANGE
W106 Rev 1.5
5-5
X20 Console Manual
If at any time during the charging process the X20
console’s ambient temperature falls between 0°Celsius (C) and 50°C (32°F and 122°F) then the X20’s Power Management system will automatically change to Fast Charging of the X20’s internal battery, thus reducing the charging time dramatically.
LED’s and Charging the Battery
• While the X20 console is charging (either in Fast Charge or Trickle Charge) mode then the internal battery status (right LED) will flash once every
5 seconds
• Once the internal battery Status LED changes from RED to ORANGE (and the external supply Status
LED is still ORANGE or GREEN) then the X20 Power button can be pressed for 3 seconds and the X20 console will startup
• While the X20 console is in charge mode the internal battery Status LED will still flash every 5 seconds. The LED will flash either ORANGE or GREEN depending on the voltage of the internal battery.
Internal Battery Charging Restrictions
Fast charge is allowed between 0°C and 50°C (32°F and 122°F).
Trickle charging is allowed below 0°C (32°F) and above 50°C
(122°F). This is a restriction and requirement of the Nickel Metal
Hydride (NiMH) battery chemistry technology.

Monitoring the X20 Console, when Switched
OFF
The X20’s Power Management system continuously monitors internal
battery voltage, while the X20 console is switched OFF, and will
switch to Charge Mode if the internal battery voltage drops below 9.0
Volts and the external supply voltage is above 10.8 Volts.
While the X20 console is in Charge Mode the internal battery Status
LED will flash once every 5 seconds.
Monitoring the X20 Console, when Switched ON
If the X20 console is switched ON and the external supply drops below
10.8 Volts for more than 60 seconds (Default) an ATX shutdown will
be initiated. A software shutdown can be started before this, by the
X20 Manager software (which can be cancelled). By default, the X20
Manager software shutdown is set at 15 seconds. Therefore as long
as the X20 Manager software is running in the background and the
external supply drops below 10.8 Volts then after 15 seconds the X20
Power Manager will perform an ATX shutdown and Windows® will be
shutdown properly and all data will be saved.
If the operator overrides the X20 Manager software shutdown or the
X20 Manager is not running, then after 60 seconds if the external
supply voltage is still below 10.8 Volts then the X20’s Power
Management will commence a hardware ATX shutdown; the hardware
ATX shutdown cannot be cancelled and is designed to protect
customers data from unstable supply conditions. This shutdown is
indicated by both Status LED's flashing.

Auto-Shutdown Delay
By default the ‘Enable Auto Shutdown’ is selected, (see the tick
in the box shown in Figure 8-2 on page 8-2). This allows the X20
console to perform an ATX shutdown when the regulator voltage
(external supply voltage) drops below 10.6 Volts.
The X20 Manager window will be displayed when the regulator
voltage falls below 10.6 Volts.
The time displayed in seconds (default is 10 seconds) determines
how long the X20 Manager will wait before the X20 console starts
an ATX shutdown.
The regulator voltage (external supply voltage) has to stay below
the 10.6 Volt threshold for the time delay period before the ATX
shutdown is started. If the voltage is restored above the 10.6 Volt
threshold, then the Auto-Shutdown is stopped.
The delay can be set between (1 and 10 seconds), the delay can be
set using the up and down arrows. A value higher than 10 seconds
will be overridden by the firmware which will automatically start
the ATX shutdown at 10 seconds.
The voltage can be set using the up and down arrows.

console (Figure 2-2 on page 2-6) and 2 at the rear (Figure 2-3 on page
2-7). The USB Thumbdrive can be plugged into any one of the 4 USB
ports on the X20 console.
The USB Thumbdrive is used for software upgrades for the X20
console, and for transferring data to between the X20 console and other
PC's.
USB Thumbdrives are very rugged and do not have multiple fine pins
as with PCMCIA or Compact Flash Cards. USB Thumbdrives are also
HOT pluggable which means they can be carefully plugged in and
removed at any time whilst the X20 console is running.
TIP
TIP
Software supplied on the CD for the Thumbdrive must
be loaded on any other PC before the Thumbdrive will
operate on that PC.
TIP
TIP
If the PC is running Windows® XP then there is no need
to load drivers as Windows® XP automatically detects
and loads the USB Thumbdrive.

Storing the X20 Console
NOTICE
NOTICE
It is important that you read and understand all of the
following notes.
• The X20 console should never be left in a vehicle if the temperature is likely to fall below -20°C (-4°F)
• The X20 console should never be left in a vehicle if the temperature is likely to go above 60°C (140°F)
• The X20 console should never be left so direct sunlight is exposed to the Heat Sink Fins (Figure 1-3 on page 2-7) on the back of the X20 console.
WARNING
WARNING
If any of the above conditions are likely to occur
then the X20 console should be removed from that
environment.
•
Be aware that if the X20 console is left on a tractor connected to the supply, it will draw on power from the tractor battery if
the X20 internal battery drops below 8V. This would happen infrequently and is related to the natural discharge rate of the cells. TIP
TIP
To stop the vehicle battery from going flat, disconnect
the X20 from the tractor battery, when not in use.
W106 Rev 1.5

X20 Console Manual
•
The best way to long-term store an X20 ready for use is switched off and attached to a 13.8V mains adapter (optional extra) at room temperature. This will continuously cycle the internal battery between 8V and 10.8V. The charger will operate for twenty minutes with the first 14.5 minutes at rapid charge followed by 7.5 minutes of pulsed top-up. The charger will switch on about once every two weeks, but depends on the initial charge level. This will keep the battery at about 40% charge.
TIP
TIP
Storing the X20 console in this way will give the battery
its longest possible life.
•
After extended storage, and if the X20 console will not start (battery LED is red), bring the X20 up to room temperature (above 10°C (45°F)) and connect to 13.8VDC mains adapter or connect to tractor harness. Leave it switched off but connected, and notice that the battery LED will start to flash green. This means that rapid charge is in progress. The X20 console is usable after about 5 -10 minutes. This cycle will last for about 20 minutes if left. If the battery is so discharged that the voltage is below 8V the battery will trickle charge until the voltage rises above 8V and will then rapid charge. This is a function of the battery chemistry, as are the temperature limitations on charging.
• Be aware that fast charge and pulse top-up only operates in the range 0°C (32°F) to 50°C (122°F). At temperatures outside this range the charging process is a trickle charge only.

Nickel-Metal Hydride
Battery Characteristics
All batteries are affected by self-discharge. This is not a defect per se,
although improper use enhances the condition. Self-discharge is not
linear; the highest loss occurs right after charge, and then tapers off.
Nickel-based batteries exhibit a relatively high self-discharge. At
ambient temperature, a new nickel-cadmium loses about 10% of its
capacity in the first 24 hours after charge. The self-discharge settles
to about 10% per month afterwards. Higher temperature increases the
self-discharge substantially. As a general guideline, the rate of selfdischarge doubles with every 10°C (18°F) increase in temperature. The
self-discharge of nickel-metal-hydride is about 30% higher than that of
nickel-cadmium.
The success of nickel-metal hydride has been driven by high energy
density and the use of environmentally friendly metals. The modern
nickel-metal hydride offers up to 40% higher energy density compared
to the standard nickel-cadmium. There is potential for yet higher
capacities, but not without some negative side effects.
Nickel-metal hydride is less durable than nickel-cadmium.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Cycling under heavy load and storage at high
temperature reduces the service life of the battery.
Nickel-metal hydride suffers from high self-discharge, which is higher
than that of nickel-cadmium.
W106 Rev 1.5

X20 Console Manual
Nickel-metal hydride has been replacing nickel-cadmium in markets
such as wireless communications and mobile computing. Experts agree
that nickel-metal hydride has greatly improved over the years, but
limitations remain. Most shortcomings are native to the nickel-based
technology and are shared with nickel-cadmium. It is widely accepted
that nickel-metal hydride is an interim step to lithium-based battery
technology.
Nickel-metal-hydride is less forgiving than the nickel-cadmium if
charged under high and low temperatures. Nickel-metal-hydride cannot
be fast charged below 10°C (45°F) neither can it be slow charged
below 0°C (32°F). The X20 charger is designed to adjust the charge
rate to existing temperatures. This is why this manual recommends that
the X20 is brought to room temperature before being charged after an
extended period of storage.
At higher temperatures, the charge acceptance of nickel-based batteries
is drastically reduced.
TIP
TIP
A battery that provides a capacity of 100% when
charged at moderate room temperature can only accept
70% if charged at 45°C (113°F), and 45% if charged at
60°C (140°F).

Advantages of Nickel-Metal Hydride Batteries
• 30-40% higher capacity than standard nickel-cadmium.
Nickel-metal-hydride has potential for yet higher energy densities
• Less prone to memory than nickel-cadmium - fewer exercise cycles are required
• Simple storage and transportation - transport is not subject to regulatory control
• Environmentally friendly - contains only mild toxins; profitable for recycling
W106 Rev 1.5

X20 Console Manual
Disadvantages of Nickel-Metal Hydride
Batteries
• Limited service life - the performance starts to deteriorate after 200-300 cycles if repeatedly deeply cycled. Deep cycling does not occur in normal X20 use
• Relatively short storage of three years
TIP
TIP
Cool temperature and partial charge slows battery aging
• Limited discharge current - although nickel-metal-hydride is
capable of delivering high discharge currents, heavy load reduces the battery's cycle life. High discharge only occurs during an emergency battery-supported shutdown of the X20
•
More complex charge algorithm needed - nickel-metal-hydride generates more heat during charge and requires slightly longer
charge times than nickel-cadmium. Trickle charge settings
are critical because the battery cannot absorb overcharge. This is managed by the X20's microprocessor controlled power management system
• High self-discharge - typically 50% higher than nickel-cadmium
• Performance degrades if stored at elevated temperatures nickel-metal-hydride should be stored in a cool place at 40%
state-of-charge
•
High maintenance - nickel-metal hydride requires regular full discharge to prevent crystalline formation; nickel-metal-hydride once in every 3 months. This will happen between seasons but probably not as often as required for absolute maximum life span

X20 Console Manual
The X20 Console
The X20 has a power management system that remains active even
when the unit is switched OFF. However it uses very little standby
power, typically 600uA at 5V or 0.003W.
This management system ensures that before an X20 can be turned
on and used there is enough internal battery energy available to
successfully close the unit down in the event of the sudden and
unexpected loss of the external supply. This is designed to protect the
users data and also protect the integrity of the operating system and the
compact flash it is built on.
The internal battery is not there in order to use the X20 as a fully
mobile device and will not support this function.
Any voltage transients from vehicle start-up are also controlled by the
internal battery.
The battery packs are deep cycled at Topcon Precision Agriculture
before the X20 is dispatched.
