  • Page 17: Rf Safety Notice

    Safety requirements restrict the temperature at which the Li-Ion UPS battery can be charged. Charging is disabled if the ambi- ent temperature is outside of the 0ºC to 35ºC safe charging range. In order to maintain UPS charge the Thor VM1 should have power applied while the unit is within the safe charging range for at least an hour each day.

  • Page 19: Chapter 2 - Getting Started

    The Thor VM1 contains a UPS battery which, when fully charged, can power the Thor VM1 for a minimum of 30 minutes. This can be when the Thor VM1 is not attached to a Quick Mount Smart Dock or when the Thor VM1 is attached to a dock but the vehicle power is interrupted, such as when the vehicle battery is being changed.

    Power Vehicle DC Power Supply Vehicle power input for the Thor VM1 dock is 10V to 60V DC and is accepted without the need to perform any manual oper- ation within the Thor VM1 dock, see 12-48 VDC Vehicles (10-60 VDC Direct Connection) (page 4-15).

  • Page 31: External Ac Power Supply

    If DC power is not available – for example, in an office environment – an optional external Universal Input Power Supply can be used to convert AC wall power to an appropriate DC level. AC to DC power input for the Thor VM1 is delivered to the Quick Mount Smart Dock via an optional external power supply and adapter cable.

  • Page 32: Fuse

    When the Thor VM1 is attached to either vehicle power or an external power supply or is operating from the UPS bat- tery and the power button is pressed, the Thor VM1 is in the On mode. In this mode, the keypad, touch screen and any attached peripherals such as a scanner function normally.

For all operations that can result in an error, an Error level message is displayed when a failure occurs.

    Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Could not create event The keyboard filter uses this event at the Administrator Control panel. The event LOG_ERROR EVT_HOTKEYCHG could not be created. Could not hook keyboard If the keyboard cannot be controlled, AppLock cannot process the hotkey. This LOG_ERROR failure prevents a mode switch into user mode.

    Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Registry read failure at re- The registry has to be read when switching into user mode. This is because the LOG_ERROR enter user mode administrator can change the settings during administration mode. The read of the registry failed which means the Administration key was not found or the Ap- pName value was missing or empty.
