Battery Change Guide for the Converge Node
You can check the battery level in your repeaters 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 Converge Nodes. To complete this task you will need the following:
- A Flat Bladed Screwdriver
- Replacement AA cell batteries
- A clean, dry working environment to prevent dust and water entering the node
2. Opening the Case
The node 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 Node:
3. Removing and replacing the old batteries
Remove the old AA batteries and replace them with new ones. The batteries are held in by insulating tape so gently peel the tape off the battery housing, remove the old batteries and dispose of them. Insert the new batteries and replace the tape making sure than you do not cover the flashing LED on the back of the circuit board:
Now place the circuit board back in with the battery compartment inserted into the hole in the foam insert, the battery case fits tightly in the hole so you will need to apply some pressure to fully seat the board back in place:
4. Replacing the lid and closing the case
Now reposition the lid with the Weipu connector on the base as you look at the unit and turn each corner screw through 90 degrees to lock. Next, return the node to the sensor location and re attach the weipu connector to continue collecting data:
Check the LED again to make sure it is flashing and then re-position the node back in its usual place on site.
