Use the dedicated AC adaptor (AD-S42120B) for supplying power to the HA-K62IO Ethernet
Cradle. Ensure that you connect the AC adaptor to the cradle before starting communication
between the DT-X8 and PC via the cradle. Follow the steps below to connect the power supply to
the DT-X8 using the dedicated AC adaptor.
1. Plug the AC adaptor into the AC adaptor jack on the back of the Ethernet Cradle.
2. After connecting the AC adaptor to the power cable, plug in the plug of the power cable to an
3. Set the selector switch on the back of the Ethernet cradle to the port that will be used. Set the
switch to "LAN" to use the LAN port or to "USB" to use the USB port.
4. Before using the cradle ports, remove the caps from the ports. When using a LAN, connect one
end of the LAN cable to the LAN port and the other end to the PC or hub. When using a USB
connection, connect one end of the USB cable (DT-380USB-A) to the USB port and the other
end to the PC.
5. Align the contacts on the underside of the DT-X8 with the power supply contacts on the Ethernet
Cradle and then set the DT-X8 into the cradle so that mount holes in the back of the DT-X8 are
aligned with the mount hooks on the cradle. Once the DT-X8 is properly set in the cradle, the
power LED on the front of the Ethernet cradle lights green.
Status of Indicator 1 on DT-X8
Always remove the DT-X8 from the Ethernet Cradle before changing the selector switch setting.
Never short out the power contacts of the cradle. This damages the cradle.
Do not subject the DT-X8 and cradle to vibration or impact during communication. This results
in communication being interrupted.
When mounting the DT-X8, securely attach it to the mount hooks of the cradle and check that
the power LED on the front of the cradle lights green. Charging battery pack or communication
will not proceed if it is not mounted properly.
The LAN and USB connections cannot be used concurrently.
Always cap ports that are not being used. Using the Ethernet Cradle while the ports are
uncapped can cause damage.
Standby due to battery pack error or the surrounding temperature is out of range
(charging begins when the temperature is within the correct range.)
