RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This mobile phone meets the government's requirements for exposure to radio waves. This phone is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg. Tests for SAR are
conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone transmitting at its
highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use
only the poser required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station
antenna, the lower the power output.
The highest SAR value for the model phone as reported to the FCC when tested for use at the ear is
0.919 W/kg Max. and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 1.34 W/kg Max. (Bodyworn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements.)
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they
all meet the government requirement.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model phone
is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
after searching on FCC ID: HD599EXLG and HD599EXLW.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure guidelines for
use with an accessory that contains no metal and the positions the handset a minimum of 1.5 cm from
the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you
do no t use a body-worn accessory and are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset a
minimum of 1.5 cm from your body when the phone is switched on.
For European Community Users
Honeywell complies with Directive 2002/96/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE
COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC)
The Dolphin 99EX has been tested for hearing aid compatibility. This device has an M3 and T3 rating.
For additional HAC information, including the HAC rating for this product, please refer to
www.honeywellaidc.com.
When some wireless devices are used near some hearing devices such as hearing aids and implants,
users may detect a buzzing or humming noise. Some hearing devices are more immune than others to
this interference noise. Wireless devices may also vary in the amount of interference they generate.
The ratings for compatibility of digital wireless devices with hearing aids are described in the American
National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard:
M-Rating: Phones rated M3 or M4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to generate less interference
with hearing devices than phones that are not labeled. M4 is the superior/higher of the two ratings.
T-Rating: Phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with hearing
devices' telecoil than unrated phones. T4 is the superior/higher of the two ratings.
The more immune the hearing aid device is, the less likely one is to experience interference noise from
the wireless phone. Hearing aid devices may also be rated. Adding the ratings of the hearing aid and the
phone would determine probable usability:
• Any combined rating equal to or greater than six offers the best use.
• Any combined rating equal to five is considered normal use.
The ratings are not guarantees. Results will vary depending on the user's hearing device and hearing
loss. If your hearing device happens to be vulnerable to interference, you may not be able to use this
device successfully. Trying out this device with your hearing device is the best way to evaluate it for your
personal needs.
This device has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless technologies
that it utilizes. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this phone that have
not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different features of this phone
thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear implant, to determine if you hear
any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or the manufacturer of this phone for information on
hearing aid compatibility.

Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices
Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires
devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to
1000MHz. The maximum allowable field strength emitted by the Dolphin terminal is 0.3V/m according to
Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the RF from the Dolphin terminal has no effect on
medical devices that meet the IEC specification.
Microwaves
The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven.
Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance
degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will
continue to function.

File Provisioning on the 99EX
\IPSM\Honeywell
The IPSM folder is the only partition on the 99EX that persists across a kernel upgrade (*.UPG file extension). During a kernel upgrade, files are automatically copied from the \IPSM\Honeywell\Autoinstall folder and then installed in the \Honeywell (root file system) folder as part of the upgrade
process.
\IPSM\Honeywell\AutoInstall
The files in the IPSM\Honeywell\AutoInstall folder are only installed when a factory reset or kernel upgrade occurs. Once the files are installed, they persist through hard and soft resets. If a file is
added to the folder and a hard or soft reset is performed, it will have no effect. If a program is manually
removed using the Remove Programs application (see page 7-17), then the program is not automatically
re-installed on a hard or soft reset.
\Honeywell
The Honeywell partition or root file system partition is persistent over a Hard Reset, Soft Reset, and the
removal of the battery pack or the removal of AC power. However, during a kernel upgrade the root file
system is reformatted so all data in the folder is deleted and replaced by any files in the \IPSM\Honeywell\AutoInstall folder as part of the upgrade process.
!
To prevent data loss, back up all user data to an SD card or external memory device before performing an upgrade.
\Honeywell\AutoInstall
If you run a CAB file from within the \Honeywell\AutoInstall (user store) folder, after the program
has been installed, the CAB file will be deleted from the User Store. The program remains installed
through all successive Hard and Soft resets.
If you want the program to be part of the Autoinstall that occurs after a factory reset or software upgrade,
paste the program file(s) in both the \IPSM\Honeywell\Autoinstall folder and the
\Honeywell\Autoinstall.

3 - 10
Using the Touch Panel
Honeywell defines proper use of the terminal touch panel as using a screen protector and proper stylus.
Screen protectors maintain the ongoing integrity (i.e., prevent scratching) of the touch panel, which is
why their use is recommended for applications that require a high to medium level of interface with the
touch panel, such as signature capture for proof of delivery.
Honeywell advocates the use of screen protectors on all Dolphin devices. We recommend implementing
a screen protector replacement program to ensure that screen protectors are replaced periodically when
signs of damage/wear are noticeable. Replacement screen protectors can be purchased directly from
Honeywell. Please contact a Honeywell sales associate for details.
Honeywell also mandates use of a proper stylus, which is one that has a stylus tip radius of no less than
0.8 mm. Use of the Honeywell stylus included with the terminal is recommended at all times.
Honeywell warranty policy covers wear on the touch panel for the first twelve (12) months if a screen protector is applied and an approved stylus is used for the 12 month duration covered by the warranty.
Installing a Screen Protector
Dolphin terminals ship with a screen protector already installed. You will need to replace the screen protector at regular intervals.
1.
After the current screen protector has been removed from the touch panel, clean the touch panel
thoroughly with a clean, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. Make sure there is no debris on the touch
panel.
2.
Align the exposed section of the protector with the bottom edge of the touch panel. Make sure that
the screen protector is flush with each side of the touch panel. To reposition, lift up gently and
reapply.
3.
Press the screen protector firmly and carefully across the surface of the touch panel as you peel
away the backing.
4.
If necessary, smooth out any air pockets or bumps.
Batteries
There are three types of battery power: the main battery pack installed in the back panel, the backup
battery located inside the terminal and the Real Time Clock (RTC) battery located inside the terminal.
They are designed to work together to prevent data loss when the terminal is in use over long periods.
All batteries must be completely charged before using a Dolphin terminal for the first time!
Note: The RTC battery will preserve the Real Time Clock 60 days after the main battery and internal backup battery
are fully depleted.

damaged, for example: a crack in the display or enclosure, missing keypad buttons or side buttons, or the
terminal battery well seal is missing or cracked.
Internal Backup Battery
Located inside the terminal is a 3.6 Volt nickel metal hydride (NiMH) backup battery. The backup battery
prevents the terminal from being reset if you need to replace the main battery pack. It retains RAM data
during the battery pack exchange. A fully charged backup battery provides 30 minutes of backup time.
Note: When removing a battery from the terminal, put the device in Suspend Mode (see page 2-13) before removing
the battery door. Once the battery door is removed, wait at least 3 seconds before removing the main
battery. This process allows the device to shut down properly and maintain memory during the battery swap.
If at any time the backup battery becomes fully discharged of power (e.g., the terminal is left without the
main battery pack for more than 30 minutes), the terminal resets when power is supplied. All files are
retained, but you may need to restart any running applications. In addition, a fully discharged backup
battery requires a minimum of 24 hours of charging time to reach a full charge.
Note: Data and programs stored in Flash memory are not lost even if the internal backup battery fails.
Charging
The internal backup battery and the RTC battery are powered by the main battery pack. Therefore,
charging the internal batteries requires a charged main battery pack be installed in the terminal and the
terminal be connected to a charging device.
3 - 14
The internal backup battery must be fully charged before using the terminal for the first time. Honeywell
recommends charging the Dolphin terminal for at least 24 hours prior to initial use to ensure the internal
backup battery is fully charged. After that, if the internal backup battery becomes fully discharged of
power, it requires a minimum of 24 hours of charging time to function normally.
Guidelines for Use
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the internal backup battery:
• Keep a charged battery pack in the terminal; the backup battery prematurely discharges if there is not
at least a partially charged battery in the terminal.
• Keep the terminal connected to power when the terminal is not in use.
Managing Battery Power
Letting the backup battery become fully discharged causes the terminal to lose all data in RAM. Honeywell recommends, you keep a charged battery pack in the terminal at all times to help prevent data loss.
The internal battery discharges prematurely if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal. When you remove a battery pack, insert another charged battery pack in the terminal immediately.
Default Critical and Low Battery Points
When the terminal is running on battery power (as opposed to external power), warnings are displayed
when the battery reaches critical and low battery points. The warning points are determined by the following registry entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Power]
There are two DWORD values in this registry entry: MedState and LowState.
The default values for these entries are as follows:
MedState=25%
This sets the Low Battery point to 25%. When the battery hits the percentage charge specified
here, the user is notified.
LowState=10%
This sets the Critical Battery point to 10%. When the battery hits the percentage charge
specified here, the user is notified.
Note: Warnings do not appear when the terminal is on external power.

Decoding
The terminal supports two types of image decoding for use in various bar code reading and imaging
applications: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD).
Full-Area Imaging
Full-area imaging provides omni-directional reading of linear and non-linear 1D and 2D bar codes, OCR,
signature capture, and picture taking. When reading all bar code types using full-area imaging, a positive
read can be obtained from many positions; see Aiming Options on page 4-4. To achieve the best read,
the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear and stacked linear bar codes. To achieve a positive read when reading linear 1D and PDF417 bar codes, the green aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the
bar code. When ALD is enabled, the reader does not read matrix or postal codes.
To Decode a Bar Code
The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar code to achieve optimal decoding. A range
of 4-10 inches (10-25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
1.
Tap
> Demos
> Scan Demo
.
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the bar code.
3.
Project the aiming beam or pattern by pressing and holding one of the following:
4.
• the SCAN key (all models) or
• one of the terminal’s side buttons (all models).
The scan LED lights red.
5.
Center the aiming beam over the bar code; see Aiming Options on page 4-4.
6.
When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.
7.
The bar code information is entered into the application in use.
Aiming Options
The aiming beams are smaller when the terminal is held closer to the code and larger when it is farther
from the code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to the unit
whereas symbologies with larger bars or elements (mil size) should be read farther from the unit.

Capturing Images
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following the
basic guidelines, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to
adapt it to different application environments.
Image Preview
When the imaging process is initiated, the touch screen displays a preview of the object. This is a live
video image of what the imager is currently viewing. The live video image has a slightly degraded
appearance compared to the captured image. This is normal.
Scan Key
On all 99EX terminals, the SCAN key captures images.
File Formats
File formats supported for image storage include Bitmap (BMP), JPEG (JPG) and Portable Network
Graphics (PNG). The default file format for images is a grayscale JPG.
Compression
Digital images have a maximum image size of 640 x 480 pixels and may have up to a 256 grayscale
image definition.
The image quality and related file size are determined by the data compression method used by the software application used to take images. The average size of the image file is approximately 4–8K. However, the size of the image depends on the content of the image - the more complex the content, the
larger the file size.
Taking an Image
The following steps are basic guidelines for taking images:
1.
Tap
2.
Point the Dolphin terminal at the object.
3.
To preview the image, press and hold one of the following:
4.
• the SCAN key (all models) or
• one of the terminal’s side buttons (all models).
The touch screen displays a preview of the object, and the decode and scan LEDs light red.
5.
4-6
> Demos > Imaging Demo
.
Adjust the terminal’s position until the object appears on the screen the way you want it to appear in
the image.
6.
Hold the terminal still and release the SCAN key. The scan and decode LEDs flash red, the screen
flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.
7.
Unless otherwise specified by the application in use, the image is saved to the \My Device\My
Documents folder.
Enabling the Aimer
You can enable the aiming pattern for imaging in the Imaging Demo. For details about the aimer, see
Aiming Options on page 4-4.
1.
Tap
> Demos > Imaging Demo > Setup menu > Aimer.
2.
The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.
Uploading Images
Image files can be uploaded to a host workstation via Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication peripheral or your wireless radio connection.
Note: You can download the most current version of ActiveSync from www.microsoft.com.
Note: Visit the Microsoft Windows 7 web site for information on how to sync your music, pictures, contacts and
calendars using Device Stage.
Note: Visit the Microsoft Windows Vista web site for information on how to sync your music, pictures, contacts and
calendars using Windows Mobile Device Center.

Working with GPS
Overview
The Dolphin 99EX terminal contains an integrated GPS module that allows location tracking of workers
and vehicles, providing better utilization of field assets. Optional mapping and navigation software provides turn-by-turn driving directions and location information.
Assisted GPS Support
The operating system software does not inhibit nor explicitly support assisted GPS modes, which usually
requires installing a vendor-specific client on the terminal that communicates with the GPS module. This
client would then provide the almanac and/or ephemeris data for warm or hot start modes of operation,
allowing a lower time to first fix (TTFS). The Client must be configured on the terminal, active, and provide the data to the GPS module through the standard COM port.
Powering the GPS Module
The GPS module powers on automatically when accessed by a software application and powers off
automatically when that software application closes. You cannot manually power on and off the GPS
module.
Communication Ports
There are two ways to access the GPS module: through the actual COM port (COM7) or the GPS Intermediate Driver. The method you use depends on the software application you are using. If the software
application requires the actual COM Port, set the operating system to use COM7. If the software application requires the GPS Intermediate Driver, set the operating system to use the GPS Intermediate Driver.
Selecting the Port
1.
Tap
> Settings > System > External GPS.
2.
In the GPS program port: drop-down list, select COM7 or GPD1
(the GPS Intermediate Driver) as required by the application.
Note: The GPS program port and hardware port cannot be the same value.
3.
Tap OK to save.
COM7
COM Port 7 can be set to the following baud rates:
• 4800
• 9600 (Default baud rate. Recommended for optimal performance.)
• 19200
• 38400
Other baud rates are not possible. The baud rate selected on COM7 is the actual baud rate with which
the GPS communicates.
11 - 1
GPS Intermediate Driver
When the first user of GPD1 opens the port, the GPS Intermediate Driver opens the COM7 port. The
GPS Intermediate Driver allows multiple applications to open GPD1, and the GPS data is broadcast to
all open ports.
When the GPSID driver is in use, the COM7 port is allocated to GPSID as READ|WRITE (COM7 is still
available for access mode of 0).
For more information about Microsoft’s GPS Intermediate Driver, follow this link:

Establishing Communication
USB or RS232 communication with the terminal is usually auto-detected and configured by ActiveSync
or Windows Mobile Device Center based on the communication cable connected. If you are using a USB
cable to connect to the workstation, the sync software sets up a USB connection. If you are using an
RS232 cable, the sync software sets up an RS232 connection.
For more information, see Serial Connector on page 12-9.
Communicating with the Dolphin Terminal
To initiate communications between the Dolphin terminal and peripheral, complete these steps:
1.
Insert the Dolphin terminal into the terminal well of the base.
• The DOCK LED illuminates green. If the DOCK LED does not illuminate, make sure that the terminal is
properly seated. You may need to remove and re-insert the terminal.
• The Dolphin terminal activates; if the power is off, the terminal automatically powers on. If the terminal does
not power on, verify that the Honeywell power supply is properly connected to the cradle and plugged into a
functioning outlet.
12 - 7
• If the base is connected to the workstation, the Dolphin terminal automatically opens ActiveSync or the
Windows Mobile Device Center to establish a connection.
2.
The base can now transfer data between the terminal and the host device. If communication does
not occur, check the port connections to ensure that the cradle is correctly configured.
Verifying Communication
You can verify that the USB driver is functioning by watching the COMM LED on the USB base. When
the COMM LED illuminates solid green, the base is communicating with the host device.
Verifying Data Transfer
The COMM LED flashes when data is being transferred via the base. For an RS232 connection, the
COMM LED flashes red and green. For a USB connection, the COMM LED does not flash during data
transfer.
RS232 Communications Cables
Connect the base to the host workstation or other device by plugging an RS232 serial cable into the
RS232 Communications Port on the rear of the base. The wiring of your cable depends on whether the
other device is set up as a Data Communications Equipment (DCE) or Data Terminal Equipment (DTE)
device.
The Communication Port is configured as a DCE device. To communicate with a DCE device, use either
a null modem adapter in line with a standard RS232 cable, or a null-modem serial cable. To communicate with a DTE device such as a workstation, use a standard (or straight-through) RS232 cable.
You can make your own cables by following the pin configuration in the chart that follows. To do so, you
must determine if your host RS232 device is 9-pin or 25-pin, and whether it is configured as a DCE or
DTE device.

The Communication Port is configured as a DCE device. To communicate with a DTE device such as a
workstation, use a standard (or straight-through) RS232 cable. To communicate with a DCE device, use
either a null modem adapter in line with a standard RS232 cable, or a null-modem serial cable.
You can make your own cables by following the pin configuration in the chart that follows. To do so, you
must determine if your host RS232 device is 9-pin or 25-pin, and whether it is configured as a DCE or
DTE device.

Dolphin 99EX ChargeBase Device (Model 99EX-CB)
Overview
The ChargeBase is a 4-slot charging cradle that can power 4 Dolphin 99EX terminals, and charge their
main batteries in 4 hours for the standard 3.7V battery or 6 hours for the extended battery.
The 99EX-CB charger is designed for use with all 99EX model terminals using battery pack model
99EX-BTSC (standard Li-poly 3.7 V, 11.3 watt hour) or 99EX-BTEC (extended Li-ion 3.7 V, 18.5 watt
hour) manufactured for Honeywell International Inc.
Note: Dolphin 99EX models intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres are only approved to use battery
pack model 99EX-BTEC (PN 99EX-BTEC-2) or 99EX-BTSC (PN 99EX-BTSC-2). See Equipment Intended
for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres, starting on page 2-1 for additional information.
!
!
Warning! The ChargeBase is not designed for use in hazardous locations.

Communication
Software Requirements
Before you connect the Dolphin terminal to the Net Base, make sure you have the most current software
installed. To check the terminal’s system information, tap
> Power Tools > SysInfo.
• The Kernel version must be 26.01 or later in terminals running Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5
Classic.
• In terminals running Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 Professional, the kernel version must be 25.01
or later.
Applications on the Dolphin Terminal
Applications running on the Dolphin terminal when it is connected to the Net Base should be designed
specifically for a partially connected network. For more details, please refer to the Best Practices for Partially Connected Networks document available at www.honeywellaidc.com.
Connecting the Dolphin Terminal to the Net Base
By default, the Dolphin terminal is configured to obtain IP addresses automatically using a DHCP server.
This means that in most cases, you would simply plug-and-play the unit.
1.
Verify the base has power. If the Power/Dock LEDs are not illuminated, see Connecting Power to
the Net Base on page 16-5.
2.
Plug the CAT-5 Ethernet cable into one of the RJ45 connectors on the back of the Net Base.
3.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the network.
4.
Insert the Dolphin into one of the terminal wells. The DOCK LED for the well changes from red to
green and the connection icon on the Dolphin’s title bar changes from x to .
5.
By default, the DHCP server assigns a unique IP address to each of the Dolphin terminals docked in
the Net Base. This IP address can be used by any application on the Dolphin terminal.
Note: Instead of using the default for DHCP assigned IP addresses, the Dolphin terminal can use a statically
assigned IP address. See standard Microsoft Windows Mobile documentation for how to assign a static IP
address to a network adapter. In this case, set a static IP address for the adapter named "SMC95001 USB2.0
FAST Ethernet Drive".
Displaying the Net Base Terminal Well and Dolphin IP Address
Once the Dolphin terminal establishes communication, it uses the unique IP address assigned to the terminal well it is docked in on the Net Base. If four Dolphin terminals are successfully connected, then four
different IP addresses are assigned to the adapter associated with the Dolphin terminal.
1.
Tap
2.
Change the Adapter to SMC95001.
3.
On the Input tab, tap the Display full configuration button.
4.
The Dolphin terminal retrieves and displays the IP configuration for the entire Dolphin terminal and
the Net Base terminal well where the Dolphin is docked.

Dolphin 99EX QuadCharger Device (Model 99EX-QC)
Overview
This 4-slot charging station provides intelligent battery management for the rechargeable battery packs
used in Dolphin terminals.
The 99EX-QC charger is designed for use with battery pack models 99EX-BTSC (standard Li-poly 3.7 V,
11.3 watt hour) and 99EX-BTEC (extended Li-ion 3.7 V, 18.5 watt hour) manufactured for Honeywell
International Inc.
Note: Dolphin 99EX models intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres are only approved to use battery
pack model 99EX-BTEC (PN 99EX-BTEC-2) or 99EX-BTSC (PN 99EX-BTSC-2). See Equipment Intended
for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres, starting on page 2-1 for additional information.
!
Warning! The QuadCharger is not designed for use in hazardous locations.
Unpacking the QuadCharger
Open the shipping box and inspect the package to see that the following standard items are included:
• One Dolphin QuadCharger, model 99EX-QC
• One power supply (see Supplying Power on page 17-3)
• One power cord
If any items are missing or anything appears to be damaged, contact your Customer Account Representative. Keep the original packaging in case you need to return the QuadCharger for service or to store
the QuadCharger while not in use.
Capacity
The charger holds 4 Honeywell 3.7V Li-ion batteries.
Charging Time
Charge time is 4 hours for the standard 3.7V battery or 6 hours for the extended 3.7V battery.
Charging Process
Each charging slot works independently of the other three. As battery packs charge, the charging circuitry follows the two-step charging process (CC-CV) that is recommended for Li-ion batteries. The process monitors changes in temperature, current, and voltage and resets the battery pack.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell Li-poly or Li-ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result
in damage not covered by the warranty.
!
We recommend use of Honeywell peripherals, power cables, and power adapters. Use of any non-Honeywell peripherals, cables, or power adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

Supplying Power
The charger must be connected to a power source via the Honeywell power adapter cable so that voltage is adjusted appropriately. Use only a UL Listed power supply, which has been qualified by Honeywell
with output rated at 12VDC and 3 amps with the device.
1.
Locate the AC power adapter cable and plug it into the power source.
2.
Connect the power cable to the power adapter.
3.
Connect the power cable to the supply connector on the back of the charger.

The power LED illuminates green, and the charger performs a self-diagnostic test that lasts
approximately five seconds.
Recommendations for Storing Batteries
To maintain top performance from batteries, avoid storing batteries outside of the following temperature
ranges:
• 14°F to 113°F (-10°C to +45°C) for short term storage of less than one month
• 32°F to 86°F (-0°C to +30°C) for long term storage
Do not store batteries in extremely high humidity. For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in
a charger that is connected to a power source.
Inserting and Charging Batteries
For best results, battery packs should be at room temperature before recharging them; temperature has
a marked effect on charging. The recommended temperature range is 50°F to 95° F (10°C to 35° C).
1.
Set up the charger, see Supplying Power above.
2.
Power the charger. The Power LED illuminates green.
3.
Insert the battery at an angle so the battery pack contacts
and the QuadCharger contacts align.
4.
Snap the battery into place with a hinging motion.
5.
The Status LED for that particular slot illuminates orange to
indicate the battery is seated properly and the charging cycle has begun.
6.
When the Status LED turns green, the battery in the slot has completed charging.
17 - 3
Mounting the QuadCharger
The charger should be on a dry, stable surface and can be mounted on a flat, horizontal surface such as
a desktop or workbench. When choosing a location, always bear in mind that:
• the mounting location must allow users easy access to the power connector.
• the charger should be oriented so that users can easily insert and remove battery packs and see the
LEDs.

Troubleshooting
If you encounter problems with your QuadCharger device, refer to chart below for possible solutions.
If problems persist, please contact Honeywell Technical Support.
Problem
Issue
The Status LED does not come on when I
insert a battery pack.
Check the power connections; make sure the Power cable is
inserted into the Power supply connector and the battery pack
is properly seated.
The Status LED lights red during charging.
Try to charge the battery in one of the other charging slots. If
the red Status LED comes on again, then the problem is
associated with the battery pack. If the red status stays with the
charging slot, the problem is associated with the charging
circuitry.
The Status LED flashes red without a
battery in the charging slot.
If a battery is in failure mode (flashing red LED), and that
battery is removed from the charging slot, the slot does not
reset and will continue to flash red. To reset the slot and stop
the flashing red LED, insert a known good battery into the slot
or recycle the power to the QuadCharger.
