There is little maintenance needed. However, cau-
tion must be exercised to insure the displays are
protected from extended exposure to direct sun-
light or heat. LCD displays have a limited life and
replacement should be done by the manufacturer.
The 9V transistor batteries are rechargeable. Re-
charging is only possible with BAT switched off.
The SAXIMETERTM Stroke Indicator should be att-
ached to the recharger unit and be used only on 60
Hz 115 volt power. Full battery capacity will be
achieved after 14 hours of recharging. If the
charger is left on even longer, no damage to the
unit will occur.
In case the batteries need to be exchanged, the
BAT button must be released to the off position.
Then the four screws holding the top to the bottom
case have to be removed (see Figure 38). The top
cover can now be lifted and the batteries removed
from their fittings. The new batteries, after being
connected to their respective clips, should be care-
fully inserted in their foam fittings.
