3 Basic Operation
Docking Slot for Cableless Measurement Pods
The Avalon CL base station has one docking slot to hold an IntelliVue CL Pod. The CL Pod is
charged while docked. The LED under the docking slot indicates the battery status of the CL Pod. The
base station has a built-in short range radio interface with an integrated antenna to communicate with
the CL Pod.
Short range radio connections are subject to interruption due to interference from other radio sources
in the vicinity, including microwaves, bluetooth devices, WLAN devices (802.11b,g,n), and cordless
phones. Depending on the strength and duration of the interference, the interruption may occur for an
extended period. A loss of connection, due to moving out-of-range, interference, or for other reasons,
is indicated with a

CL transducer has failed.
The base station issues a permanent beeping tone if it is disconnected from a fetal monitor, or if
the FM20 or FM30 monitor is switched off, and the base station has transducers currently docked
that need to be recharged.
If an interval tone is played, the battery of one or more the CL transducers or CL Pods need to be
