Care and Use of OSCOR-5000 Internal Battery

The OSC-5000 is equipped with an internal Sealed Lead Acid Battery. This type of battery generally does not tolerate repeated deep discharges.  The OSCOR’s circuitry  will prevent the battery from excess power drain but the battery will need to be fully charged before storage.  The OSCOR needs to be stored in an environment with temperatures below 80°F as warmer temperatures will degrade the performance of the battery.

When the OSCOR is brought out of storage the OSCOR will maintain the battery as soon as the microprocessor recognizes the use of AC. Always operate the OSCOR on AC power when possible. If AC power is not available the OSCOR may be connected to 12VDC with the use of an adapter that is stowed in the accessory compartment of the unit.

The OSCOR should be stowed with a fully charged battery, and should be recharged monthly when not in use. Replacement battery "POWER SONIC" Model PS-1229 12Volt 2.9 Amp Hr.

06/15/2001

OPC-5000 Version 4.0 Introduced

The newest version of the OPC-5000 is now being offered.  Version 4.0 of OSCOR PC Software Interface can display multiple database files simultaneously, edit, cut and paste data within multiple database files, offers improved OSCOR console display, improved communications between OSCOR and PC, improved control over receiver functions such as inputs, bandwidths, and squelch, and improved control over miscellaneous OSCOR functions.
