EcoLite Plus Rechargeable Receiver and its Diagnostic Charging Cradle

Your EcoLite Rechargeable Receiver will come with either a standard charging cradle or a diagnostic charging cradle. The diagnostic charging cradle is designed to not only charge the EcoLite Plus Rechargeable Receiver but also to test its functionality, including the correction.

EcoLite Charger and Receiver

Instructions

1. Getting the charging cradle ready for use

Insert the supplied power jack into bottom of Cradle where indicated then plug the AC adapter into any Ul 110 Volt wall receptacle. The Cradle is now ready to use and will power off when not in use to conserve power.

2. Inserting the EcoLite Plus Receiver into the Charging Cradle

The receiver is designed to be charged fully assembled with the collar strap and probes attached to the receiver. Insert the Ecolite Plus receiver into the Charging Cradle Plus with the correction posts face down and slide into the holes in the Cradle. The charge boss faces forward and indexes it into the notch in the Cradle. Press down on Ecolite until the retaining arm swings over the top of the Ecolite and you hear a click.

3. The Initial Test

The Cradle will now perform a functional test of the Ecolite. While testing, Red and Green lights will alternate to indicate the Cradle is working. It will try all possible signals for which the Ecolite can be programmed (PetStop, IFCO 700 Series and IFCO 800 Series). If the Ecolite passes the initial test, the Green light will blink to indicate the Cradle has turned on the charger and is waiting for the Ecolite to charge. If you simply wanted to test the Ecolite and not charge the receiver, you can remove the Ecolite now for use; otherwise, leave the receiver in the charging cradle while the Ecolite charges.Charging time takes approximately 15 minutes depending on the level of charge remaining in the receiver. Also – you do not need to charge the Ecolite completely. It can run for several days on just a 15-minute charge. If the Ecolite fails the initial test, it could simply need charging. The Red light will blink to indicate the initial test has failed, and it will then attempt to charge the receiver. Leave the receiver in the cradle for a while to see if it charges enough to then trigger the green light. If not, see step 5.

EcoLite Charging

4. During the charging process

Either the Red light will blink (if it failed the initial test) or the green light will blink (if it passed the initial test). The Cradle will check if the Ecolite Plus is charging once per minute for up to 4 hours. An Ecolite Plus with a completely discharged battery will charge in under 4 hours (typically 2.5 hours).

5. Failed to Charge

If the Ecolite fails to charge completely within 4 hours, the Red light will turn solid (not flash). This indicates the Ecolite is defective. Call your Dealer immediately or contact the company for replacement instructions.

6. Successfully Charged

If the Ecolite charges properly and if the Ecolite passed the initial test, the Green light will turn solid (not flash), indicating the initial test was passed and the Ecolite charged correctly. You may now remove and use the Ecolite collar. If the Ecolite charges properly and if the Ecolite failed the initial test, the Cradle will now perform another test now that the battery is fully charged. If the Ecolite passes this second test, the Green light will turn solid (not flash), indicating the Ecolite has been charged and passed the test. You may now remove and use the Ecolite collar.If the Ecolite fails to pass the test, the Red light will turn solid (not flash). This is an indication that the Ecolite is defective and cannot respond properly to signal. Call your Dealer immediately or contact the company for replacement instructions.

Hint:
Removing the Ecolite Plus from the Cradle. Pull straight up on Ecolite to remove it from the charger. If necessary, you may push the retaining arm away from the top of Ecolite to facilitate removal.
