Inserting or replacing the ExLRT battery is quick and simple. Below is a step-by-step tutorial and video for carrying out this process.
Before you begin
Before you begin to replace or insert the battery, it is important to note that battery changes must be completed in a safe non-explosive environment. The intrinsic safety of the ExLRT is only assured when the battery is properly inserted and the battery door is closed and latched. Only then is the system to be used where explosive vapour may be present.
Step 1: Turn off the ExLRT
First, turn off the ExLRT by pressing the button under the handle on the back side of the display.
Step 2: Open the ExLRT battery compartment
Use the supplied red hex key to loosen the quarter-turn screws on the back face of the unit.
Once the screws are loosened, the battery door will freely open.
Step 3: Release the ExLRT battery
There is a sliding latch lever at the top of the battery compartment. Slide it to the left to release the battery.
Even if no battery was previously installed, the slide latch will still be positioned to the right as it must be in this locked position for the battery door to fully close. You will need to slide the latch to the left in order to prepare to insert a battery, even if none was previously installed.
Step 4: Remove and replace the ExLRT battery
When the lever is positioned to the left, you’ll be able to easily insert or remove the battery.
No force will be required for either the insertion or the extraction of the battery.
Step 5: Secure the ExLRT battery compartment
With the battery inside the compartment, slide the latch back to the right. This motion will pull the battery fully into the battery compartment and secure it in place.
Close the door to the battery compartment and secure the two screws.
Step 6: Restart the ExLRT
You can now restart the ExLRT by pressing the power button.
This step-by-step guide to inserting and removing the ExLRT battery is also available in this video, which will open in YouTube.
