Data Transmission Mode
1. How to transmit and receive data from another RC-4000/4400
Data can be transmitted and received between different units of the RC-4000 and between
the RC-4000 and RC-4400. The RC-4300 wrist adaptor is necessary for data transmission.
(1) Connect your RC-4000/4400 to another via the wrist adaptor as shown below. (For
attachment of the wrist plug, refer to the "Wrist Plug" and "RC-4300" on pages 31 and
33).
* The arrow mark on the adaptor shows the direction
of transmission (see illustration). The data in A is to
be transferred to B. Make sure to connect correctly
to avoid mistransmission which may cause the data
to disappear.
(2) Switch both the receiving and transmitting RC4000s to "DATA IN (H)" mode by pressing
button A.
(3) Switch the transmitting RC-4000/4400 to "DATA
OUT (H)" mode by pressing button B, and transmission will start automatically after a beep sound*
has been heard from both units.
* At the end of transmission, there will be another beep and the display will automatically
revert to Time Display Mode. Simultaneously there will be a beep from the receiving
RC-4000/4400 which will then display the first data label transmitted.

* Be sure that transfer is carried out correctly. If not, previous data in the reception RC4000/4400 may be erased or the reception RC-4000/4400 may be all cleared.
* After transmission, the data in both RC-4000/4400s will be identical.
21
2. How to receive data from a personal computer
(1) Connect the RC-4000/4400 to a personal computer using a wrist
plug and connecting cable as shown below (for attachment of the
wrist plug, refer to "Wrist Plug" and "Connecting Cable" on pages
31 and 32).
(4) When data transfer is carried out, another beep sound is heard and RC-4000/4400 display
shows the first label transferred.
Refer to your software's Instruction Manual for details.
3. How to transmit data to a personal computer
(1) Connect your personal computer to the bi-directional
adaptor and the RC-4000/4400 to the adaptor, as
shown in the illustration below. (For attachment refer
to "Bi-directional Adaptor" on page 34.) Press button A
to change the display to "DATA IN (H)" or "DATA IN
(L)".
Connecting cable
(2) Switch the RC-4000/4400 to "DATA IN (H)" or
"DATA IN (L)" by pressing button A. (H and L show
transfer speed. Refer to "Precautions for Data Transmission Mode".)
(3) When signal is input from your personal computer, a
beep sound is heard and the data transfer automatically starts.

to "Precautions for Data Transmission Mode".
(3) A beep sound is heard as soon as the transmission
starts.
(4) When the transmission is completed, another beep
sound is heard and the display reverts to the Time
Display Mode.
Notes on Data Transfer with a personal computer
* Be sure that transfer is carried out correctly. If not, previous data in the reception RC4000/4400 may be erased or the reception RC-4000/4400 may be all cleared.
* The procedures shown herein are different according to the personal computer and the
software used. For details, refer to your software's Instruction Manual.
4. Precautions for Data Transmission Mode
(1) Before starting data transmission, make sure that all the connections are correctly made.
(21 During data transmission, avoid touching the buttons or cables which may cause a mistransmission or. erase data.
(3) There are two transfer speeds — High (H), which transfers the information in 10 seconds,
and Low (L) with a transfer speed of 80 seconds. One push of button A in the Time
Display Mode will change the display to "DATA IN (H)"; one more push changes it to
"DATA IN (L)". Both the reception and transmission should be set at the same speed.

Data input erases previous data
As soon as data transfer starts, the previous data is erased as the new data is input. Also, if
data transfer fails, previous data is erased. If display reverts to the Time Display Mode while
in "DATA IN (H)" mode, data will not be erased.
* Before switching to "DATA OUT (H)" mode, make sure that all the necessary connections
have been completed.
* All the data will be erased when the battery is exhausted.

Take Proper Care of Your RC-4000/4400
1) Water/Perspiration
Your RC-4400 is not water resistant; care should be taken not to expose it to water or
heavy perspiration. If it becomes wet wipe it completely with a dry cloth.
Do not operate any of the buttons when the watch is wet.
The crystal may become fogged if the outside temperature is lower than that inside the
RC-4000/4400. A temporary fogging will not cause a malfunction, but if it does not
clear, consult your dealer.
2) Temperature
Your RC-4000/4400 is preadjusted to function accurately when worn on the wrist at a
normal temperature range (14°F to 140°F or -10°C to +60°C).
* A small amount of time loss/gain may occur.
" The display may change more slowly.
The watch will, however, return to normal when the temperature rises.
3) Shocks
Be careful not to drop the RC-4000/4400 or slam it against a hard surface.
4) Battery
Your RC-4000/4400 uses one SB-T12 (BR2325) lithium battery. A new battery will
serve for about two years. This two-year battery lifetime is calculated on the basis of the
following conditions.
* Button operations — maximum of 20 times a day
* Use of alarm — maximum of 3 times a day, beeping for 20 seconds
Extremely high temperatures
Care should be taken not to expose your watch to high temperatures (over 140°F or
60° C).
Keep it away from direct sunlight or hot locations. If left in excessive heat:
•The digital display may become black, but this condition will disappear without aftereffects when the temperature returns to normal.
* The battery life may be shortened, and the battery may suffer electrolyte leakage.
Note: Letting the battery run down or replacing the battery will destroy all data
stored in the RC-4000/4400. The RC-4000/4400 is not equipped with a run-down
battery warning (BLD) capability.
For replacing battery, consult your dealer.
Extremely low temperatures
The watch will work accurately down to 14° F (-10°C), but do not leave it in a cold place.
If exposed to excessive cold for a long time:

29
5) For your convenience
* To adjust the wrist band, ask your dealer.
* RC-4400 can have a plaque on its back for an engraving (e.g., your initials).
