Battery Change Guide for the Converge Repeater
You can check the battery level in your repeaters in the Site Inventory section in the platform, or by checking the led in the device. If the led is flashing RGB this means the battery is low.
In this case, we strongly recommend contacting Customer Support (email@example.com) to get replacements and avoid losing the sealing around the lid. However, if necessary you can change the batteries in the device by yourself.
1. Getting Started
The following is a guide on how to replace the batteries in your repeater units. To complete this task you will need the following:
- A Flat Bladed Screwdriver
- Replacement D cell batteries
- A clean, dry working environment to prevent dust and water entering the repeater
2. Opening the Case
The repeater has 4 retaining lugs, one on each corner, insert the flat bladed screwdriver into the lug and turn gently through 90 degrees to unlock. Once unlocked the lugs will stand up as we see below:
Once all 4 lugs have been undone lift the lid to expose the internal components of the repeater:
3. Removing the old batteries
Next, carefully lift out the foam insert from the compartment and then remove the old batteries and dispose of them:
4. Inserting the new batteries
Now take the new batteries and insert them into the repeater making sure that the batteries are in contact with the terminals in the in the holder. Then check the operating LED which should now be flashing.
If the LED is not flashing check the batteries are positioned correctly and that they are touching the spring and button contacts. Also, make sure that the replacement batteries have charge and are not flat:
5. Reassembling the Repeater
Next, re-position the foam insert. By design, it is a tight fight but do not use excessive force to reinsert it.
Now place the lid back onto the repeater and using the screwdriver rotate each lug by 90 degrees to lock the case.
Check the LED again to make sure it is flashing and then reposition the repeater back in its usual place on site.
