10 Installation and Removal Procedures AntennaBatteryUniversal ConnectorBelt Clip
11 Antenna To install the antenna: Turn the radio off. Screw the antenna (clockwise) into the antenna receptacle on top of the radio.Tighten the antenna firmly with your fingers.To remove the antenna:Unscrew the antenna (counter-clockwise) and remove it from the antenna receptacle on top of the radio.The antenna is color coded according to its frequency range.Radio operators can then refer to an antenna identification table in the users manual to make sure that they have the correct antenna.
12 Battery – 1 of 8 Continued… To install the battery: Turn the radio off.Align the three tabs at the bottom of the battery with the three slots at the bottom of the back of the radio.Angle the battery forward toward the radio until the battery clicks into place.To remove the battery:Holding the radio in one hand, push down on the battery release slides on both sides of the battery with the other hand.Angle the battery away from the radio and remove.Continued…Batteries are shipped uncharged, so the user must charge the battery before attempting to use the radio.Make sure the radio is turned off before removing the battery.For installing, slide the lip of the battery into the slot between the three clips and the outside casing at the top of the radio to ensure a proper connection.
13 Charging the Battery with the IMPRES Adaptive Charger – 2 of 8 You are using the IMPRES Adaptive Charger and IMPRES or SMART BatteriesThe battery must be charged before use.Memory effect is a phenomenon that causes a loss in battery capacity or voltage due to repetitive shallow discharging or long-term overcharging.This memory effect has been greatly reduced in your batteries through the use of new cell technology.It is still recommended, however, that you discharge your battery as much as possible before recharging it.Recharging after each shift is good standard practice.When charging a battery that is attached to your radio, turn the radio off to ensure a full charge.Continued…
14 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charger – 3 of 8 IMPRES ChargerMonitors the usage pattern of the IMPRES battery and,Stores that information in the IMPRES battery, thenPerforms a recondition cycle only when needed.Will not overheat the battery regardless of how long it is left in the charger.Charger monitors the battery and automatically “tops off” the battery, as required.NOTE:IMPRES batteries may be charged in conventional chargers. However, the Smart Energy features will not be enabled.Continued....
15 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges – Charge Indicator Lights - 4 of 8 Charge Indicator DescriptionSingle Flash Green Charger has successfully powered up.Steady Red Battery is in rapid charge mode.Flashing Green Battery has completed rapid charge (>90% available capacity). Battery is in Top-Off charge (Trickle Charge) and requires approximately 1 hour.Steady Green Battery has completed charging and is fully charged.Flashing Yellow Battery is recognized by charger but is waiting to charge. (Either the battery voltage is toolow or the battery temperature is too low or too high to allow charging. When this conditionis corrected, the battery will begin charging).Flashing Red Battery is unchargeable or not making proper contact.Steady Yellow Battery is in recondition mode. The length of time the charger remains in this mode is dependent upon the state of charge remaining in the battery when inserted. (Fully charged batteries require more time to recondition–8 hours or more–than fully discharged batteries.)Flashing Red & Green Battery may be approaching the end of its rated service life. This is not a fault indication,merely a notification to the user that the battery may soon no longer be able to yieldexpected service and may need to be replaced.Continued....
16 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges – Initial Battery Charge – 5 of 8 1. Must be in an IMPRESS Adaptive Charger to properly calibrate the IMPRES battery and enable the Smart Energy features. This process is indicated by a STEADY YELLOW indicator light.The process is automatic and includes an initial reconditioning and then begins charging upon completion of this process.To ensure optimum performance prior to the initial use, all new batteries should be left in the charger until the light turns solid green.If this process is interrupted, the charger will calibrate the battery upon the next insertion.NOTE:New batteries (never used before) may prematurely indicate a full charge (STEADY GREEN indication).Continued....
17 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges – Automatic & Manual Reconditioning – 6 of 8 Automatic Reconditioning of the Battery:When the IMPRES battery is properly inserted into the charger, the charger determines if it is appropriate torecondition the battery. If the battery needs reconditioning, the charger automatically indicates a STEADYYELLOW. This process may take up to 8 hours or more to complete, depending upon the state ofcharge and capacity rating of the battery when inserted.NOTE: It important that the battery be allowed to complete the recondition/recharge process for it to be effective. Leave the battery in the charger until the charger indicates a STEADY GREEN.Manual Reconditioning of the Battery:Within 2 ½ minutes of the initial insertion of an IMPRES battery (STEADY RED indication), remove and reinsert the battery within 5 seconds to manually force reconditioning to occur. The charger indicator changes from a STEADY RED to a STEADY YELLOW. This forces the charger to recondition and automatically recharge the battery.NOTE: Excessive use of this feature reduces the cycle life of the battery.Continued....
18 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges – Manually Terminating Reconditioning – 7 of 8 At any time during the reconditioning process (STEADY YELLOW indication), remove and reinsert the battery within 5 seconds. This causes the charger to terminate the reconditioning process and begin the charging process. The charger indicator changes to a STEADY RED.NOTE:The conditioning charge feature creates an audible “ticking” sound in the receiving radio during the rapid and trickle charge modes of operation. This sound is caused by periodic discharge pulses to the battery. Changing the switch position located on the bottom of the charger from position “A” to position “B” reduces the frequency of the discharge pulses. This has a minimal impact on the effectiveness of the charger.Toward the end of the rapid charge cycle (STEADY RED indication), the battery voltage exceeds the normal operating voltage of the radio. Voltage returns to a normal level following the rapid charge mode or when the battery is removed from the charger.If the radio is turned on while the charger is in rapid charge mode, the radio becomes temporarily inoperable. This condition can be cleared by removing the radio from the charger and turning the radio off and on again.During the reconditioning process, the battery becomes fully discharged. As a result, the radio may not function during reconditioning mode.Continued....
19 Using the IMPRES Adaptive Charges – Special Features - 8 of 8 If the IMPRES battery is charged for > 2 ½ minutes, the IMPRES Adaptive Charger retains the serial number of the IMPRES battery.The battery can be removed from the charger for up to 30 minutes.Once the battery is reinserted back into the charger, it will resume the charging process from that point when the battery was first removed.
20 Universal Connector Cover The universal connector cover protects the sideconnector near the antenna.To remove the cover:Turn the radio off.Carefully insert a flat-bladed screwdriver between the bottom of the cover and the connector.Holding the top of the cover with your thumb, push the screwdriver gently downward and lever the cover away from the radio.To install the cover:Insert the hooked end of the cover into the slot above the connector.Rub the ball of your thumb from the top to the bottom of the cover, applying pressure towards the radio. This will flex the cover and snap it into place.Remember to turn off the radio.The cover should be on the radio any time the operator is not using the radio with an accessory.
21 Belt Clip 1 2 To install the belt clip: Remove battery before installing or removing the belt clip.Hold the battery with the back of the battery facing you.Hold the belt clip with the top facing upward, and align the clip with the slots on the battery back.Slide the belt clip downward into the slots until it clicks into place.To remove the belt clip:Pull away the metal tab at the top of the battery clip from the battery.Slide the clip upward until it comes away from the radio.12Remind students to remove the battery from the radio before installing or removing the belt clip.Indicate where and how to align with the slots for easy assembly.Do not use too much force to pull metal tab to remove clip.
