Locating Battery Status

If a Logger reports a battery as ‘OK’ when generating a report, there is typically enough operational life left to complete a trip before being completely exhausted.

If, however, a product shows ‘LOW’ when being configured or downloaded, it should not be used again, but discarded in accordance with local regulations.

  • Downloading data isn’t possible
  • Software freezes during download

Often this leads to data corruption and sometimes complete data loss.
