How to remove the rear cover and change the battery of the operator interface?
A battery is used to keep time when the unit is without power. Typical accuracy of the Control Station time
keeping is less than one minute per month drift. The battery of an operator interface unit does not affect the
unit's memory, all configurations and data is stored in non-volatile memory.
Changing the battery of Control Station unit
Remove power cabling. Remove the rear cover of the unit. To remove the cover, remove all of
the screws on the rear of the unit that are marked with an arrow but not the one screw marked
with the earth ground symbol. Lift the top side, hinge the cover, thus providing clearance for the

CAUTION: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
The inverter board, attached to the mounting plate, supplies the high
voltage to operate the backlight. Touching the inverter board may result in
injury to personnel.
The circuit board contains static sensitive components. Before handling the
operator interface without the rear cover attached, discharge static charges
from your body by touching a grounded bare metal object. Ideally, handle
the operator interface at a static controlled clean workstation. Also, do not
touch the surface areas of the circuit board. Dirt, oil, or other contaminants
may adversely affect circuit operation.
