Replacing the RTC Battery

The Makito X4 appliance contains a real-time clock (RTC) powered by the following battery:

  • Varta CR2032 with 2-wire connector Mfr. Part#: 06032101030

At the end of its life (7-10 years), the battery should be replaced by the end user with the same battery or an equivalent model approved by Haivision.

The RTC battery needs to be replaced if at a power-cycle event, the system time and date are reset to within 24 hours, depending on your time zone, of January 1, 1970 (Coordinated Universal Time, UTC).
