Battery and Power System Removal and Replacement
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO BATTERIES NOT SUPPLIED BY ALTUS
WITHOUT VERIFYING CONTROLLER SETUP AND OTHER OPTIONS WITH ALTUS.
If replacing the LiFe (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery with a SLA battery or SLA to LiFe,
the following steps need to be completed. If the MPM software has been installed, this will help with step #4.
1. All cables to and from controller must be connected, including the battery and its cables and connections.
Both the AC-In and AC-out connector ends include a locking feature to prevent from pulling apart. To disconnect pull back both “red” tabs. Note: Older models may not have this feature (red tabs) so simply disconnect. Controller must ﬁrst be OFF (no lights on the Remote User Interface) and connected into AC power.
If using the MPM Software use this step. If not, proceed to step 2. Connect the USB cable into the technology component within the cart (or into a resident laptop with
the MPM software loaded).
2. Wait for the double yellow to appear on the interface.
3. When this happens, press and hold the mute button for 5 seconds. One “beep” will be made immediately. Within 3-5 seconds after the initial “beep”, a second “beep” will be heard.
Keep holding down the mute button until a scrolling light sequence appears (release mute button at this time). This will look like all of the green LED lights going lighting up in order and then back off in order. When green light sequence is complete, the controller will show a Yellow LED and Green LED and then will shut itself off (all lights will turn off) and then will “Reboot” itself. When controller reboots, the remote user interface will show the battery level of the connected battery.
4. The “battery reading for conﬁrmation” will only be available if MPM View is being utilized. The cart is ready to be used.

To disable or enable a user, follow the instructions above for “Modifying Users.” When editing a speciﬁc user, check or uncheck the “Enabled” checkbox as desired.
- The system requires that there is at least one administrator account. You cannot uncheck the “Enabled” checkbox if the user is the last enabled administrator. You must ﬁ rst add or enable another administrator.
A temporary user is allowed to access the device for a pre-speciﬁ ed amount of time. After the expiration date / time, the user’s account becomes disabled and the user can no longer access the device.
This feature is helpful in managing individuals who should only have access to the device for a limited time, for example a temporary worker or a worker that is ﬂ oated to another department. If desired, an expired temporary worker can be re-enabled (see “Disabling Users” above) if the employee returns to work at a later date.
To set a user as temporary:
- Create a new user if the user has never previously accessed the device (see
“Adding Users”) OR Modify an existing user
fi the user already exists on the device
(see “Modifying Users”).

- Presence of an IPv4 address (i.e. XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) indicates a successful network connection.
- Contact your network administrator for questions regarding network information.
IP ADDRESS AND HOSTNAME
Routers and access points often assign IP address dynamically, which means that the IP address on the device could change over time. This could cause difﬁculties in communicating with the cart from the central management software. Therefore, it is recommended that a constant network address is established. This can be accomplished in two ways as described below:
Assign a Static IP Address
Your network administrator may be able to assign a “static IP address” to the device that does not change over time. Contact your network administrator for more details.
Assign a Hostname
The device can be assigned a hostname that is discoverable on the network. To assign a hostname, set the device name in the settings menu (see “Device Settings” on page 31):
Settings Menu > Device Settings > Device > Name
The cart name assigned also becomes the network hostname. Ensure that the name assigned is unique to devices on the network. Contact your network administrator to determine how to identify the cart by hostname on your network.
