Diversity Ranger in a safe and comfortable way. More specifically, you can adjust the straps and belts so that
you carry the bulk of the Ranger weight on your hips and not on your back.
Note: Before you perform the following steps, ensure that you have installed the system configuration
that you intend to use.
To put the RCU on your back
1. Loosen all of the straps.
2. Grasp the carrying grip above the harness on the back of the pack and lift Ranger onto a chair, table,
and so on.
Important: If no such object is nearby, lift Ranger onto one of your thighs and maintain your grip on the
loop. To prevent injury, do not attempt to lift Ranger directly from the ground to your shoulders.
3. Slip your free arm through a shoulder strap and then slip the other arm through the other shoulder strap.

To adjust and position the RCU on your back
Important: Have someone help you to make the initial adjustments and ensure that you follow these
adjustment steps in sequence.
1. Align the RCU so that your hips are in the middle of the hip belt, snap the center buckles together, and
then tighten both of the hip belt straps so that the buckle is in the middle.

2. Pull the shoulder straps until the padding is snug against your shoulders.
Note: Do not tighten the straps completely as this action shifts the load distribution from your hips to your
shoulders.

3. Pull the upper positioning straps to pull the top part of the RCU close to your back.

Note: The straps are properly adjusted if the straps form an angle between 20 and 30 to the horizontal
plane. If the angle is less than 20, extend the length of the straps. If the angle is greater than 30,
shorten the length of the straps.
4. Move the sternum strap up or down to a comfortable position.
The sternum strap relieves the shoulder joints of loads, stabilizes the shoulder straps and prevents the
RCU from slipping from the shoulders.

5. Snap the buckles of the sternum strap together and tighten until the strap is almost straight.
To adjust the length of back carrying system
1. Unfasten the hook and loop straps in the middle of the back carrying system, that is, on the part of the
RCU pack that touches your back.
2. Pull both straps out of the loops on the guide system.
3. Move the straps to a new position on the guide system.
To lengthen the shoulder straps, move the straps to a higher loop position.
To shorten the shoulder straps, move the straps to a lower loop position.
4. Thread the lower hook and loop strap through the lower or upper loop position.
Important: For the upper three adjustments of the back carrying system, you must thread the upper
position strap of the shoulder strap through the upper slide locks close to the carrying grip. For lower
adjustments, you need to use the lower slide locks of the back carrying system.

5. Thread the upper hook and loop strap through the third loop above the loop that you selected.

6. Close the upper hook and loop strap and then close the lower hook and loop strap.

7. Adjust the position of the RCU on your back again.

To gain access to the components inside the RCU
Important: Always lift or move the RCU with the grip near the shoulder belts. Do not lift the RCU by the
internal aluminum frame. To prevent Electrostatic Discharges (ESD), always touch the right side of the
Ranger rack (MPR) first before you interact with the system, for example, to exchange channels, cables,
SIMs, and so on.
1. Lay the harness side of the RCU on the ground or prop the back of the RCU against a wall.
2. Pull the zipper on the top right side of the RCU around and up to the left top side.
3. Pull the textile cover toward the front of the RCU.
4. Unlock the hook and loop straps that secure the plastic side flaps.
5. Pull open the plastic side panels.
6. Pull open the top plastic flap and secure the flap with the hook if the RCU is in an inclined upright
position.
7. Pull open the plastic flap on the right side of the MPR right side to gain access to the MPR power
connectors, LED, and switch.
Important: To gain access to the MPR side panel, for example, to exchange the battery, pull the zipper
on the top right side down to the base of the RCU. You do not need to completely remove the back cover
of the RCU.

o To start the MPM, turn the switch on and wait 5 seconds
o To display the battery status without turning on the system, turn the switch to the ON
position for less than 4 seconds and then turn the switch off. A LED indicates the status for
20 seconds.
o To shut down the MPM, turn the switch off. During the system shutdown procedure, the
MPM does not sense the I / O to prevent undefined MPM states during shutdown. The
switch only becomes active again after the MPMs have completely shut down, which can
take up to 4 minutes. If one or more MPMs cannot shutdown correctly within 4 minutes, the
power is cut.
ETH1, ETH2: RJ 45 connectors that provide access to the internal LAN switch.
PWR IN1: Primary power input, which the system draws power from as long as a valid input voltage
is present, for example, from a battery. To ensure that the batteries that are connected to PWR IN1
and PWR IN2 discharge in sequence, the system continues to draw power from PWR IN1 until the
battery is discharged, regardless of the input voltage level of PWR IN2.
PWR IN2: Secondary power input, which becomes active when the voltage level at PWR IN1 drops
below the minimum input voltage threshold and when a valid input voltage is present.
IN1, IN2: Bicolor LED that displays the current voltage level of PWR IN1 or PWR IN2. For a detailed

WLAN Access Point
The MPR hosts a simple WLAN access point without the support of a DHCP server. As a result, you need to
use static IP addresses for the components of Diversity Ranger.
Important: For system safety reasons and to prevent IP broadcasting, WPA2 must always be set to
active on the WLAN access point.
Usage
The controlling PC, must support a dynamic IP address on the Ethernet port and a static IP address on the
WLAN port. This configuration allows you to connect the PC through the Ethernet port to your company LAN
or through the WLAN port to Diversity Ranger without the need to change the IP settings on the PC.
Measurement Processing Module (MPM)
The Measurement Processing Module (MPM) is based on an industrial PC. The MPM provides power, data,
and audio interfaces for the measurement devices as well as runs the Diversity software that controls the
measurements.
An MPM offers the following functionality:
MPM: Industrial PC, Core2Duo SL9400 2x1.86 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, SATA SSD 60 GB hard
drive, and Windows 7 with SwissQual Diversity software
MPM-i7: Industrial PC, Intel i7-3555LE 2x2.5GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, SATA SSD 60 GB hard
drive, and Windows 7 with SwissQual Diversity software. The MPM-i7 was designed to offers more

Battery Status Display and Alarm
During operation the MPR senses the voltage levels at PWR IN1, PWR IN2 and correlates this voltage to an
estimated percentage range of the remaining battery capacity. LED IN1 or IN2 displays the resulting value.
For more information, see Table 4-5. You can also view the same percentage range for both inputs in
NQView on the PC.
To check the battery status without turning on the system, turn the power switch to the ON position
for less than 4 seconds and then turn the switch off. A LED indicates the status for 20 seconds.
Note: The Battery Status Display is active even if you use an external power supply instead of a battery.

Orange Steady 50 25%
Orange Flashing 0.5 Hz 25 10%
Orange Flashing 1 Hz 10 5% Audible alarm beeps when the battery level is less than
7 %. When this alarm sounds, you need to replace the
battery immediately, to stop the measurements in a
controlled fashion, or to shut down the system. The
remaining operation time, which is usually an average of
5 minutes, depends highly on the use case.
Orange Flashing 5 Hz <5% System is shutting down and will be switched OFF after
the MPMs have shut down or after 4 minutes.
Low Battery Alarm and Automatic Shutdown
When both input voltages from PWR IN1 and PWR IN2 drop below 7% of the remaining capacity, the audible
low battery alarm in the MPR begins to beep for 600 ms every 4 seconds. If you do not take immediate
action, the MPR initiates an automatic shutdown of the Diversity software and the MPMs as soon as the
remaining battery capacity drops below 5%. When this occurs, the alarm begins to beep for 600 ms every
1.5 seconds.
The low battery alarm only triggers when the capacity of the last available battery is too low, that is, the alarm
does not trigger when the capacity of the first battery drops below the threshold value. Depending on your
use case, Ranger can continue to operate for an average of 5 minutes.
Important: You cannot stop the automatic shutdown process after the low battery alarm is triggered.
After such a shutdown, you need to turn the I/O switch OFF before you can restart the MPR.
Depending on your system power supply configuration, you can take one of the following actions to recover
from a low battery alarm:
Only one battery (PWR IN1): Connect a charged battery or office power supply to the free PWR
IN2 connector and then disconnect the discharged battery from the MPR.
Both batteries are connected to the MPR: Disconnect the discharged battery from PWR IN1 and
then connect a charged battery or office power supply to PWR IN1. After you connect the new power
source, you can exchange the nearly discharged battery from PWR IN2.
BDC-100W attached to CHR and both batteri es are present: Ensure that the vehicle engine is
running, the BDC-100W is connected to a cigarette lighter socket, and that the MPR and BDC-100W
are ON. If possible, replace the discharged battery that is connected to PWR IN1.
BDC-300W attached to CHR: Ensure that the vehicle engine is running, the BDC-300W is attached
to the MPR, and that the BDC-300W is ON. If the alarm persists, stop the measurements, manually
shut down the system, and then check the BDC-300W cables.
Important: If you cannot perform any of these actions, stop the measurements in Diversity TestManager
on the PC and shut down the system with the I/O button. Otherwise, the automatic shutdown procedure
occurs. However, due to limitations of Windows 7, some of the MPMs that are actively running a test
might not receive the shutdown command and instead experience a hard shutdown, which can result in a
crashed installation.
Battery Hot-Swap
The integrated Battery hot-swap functionality allows you to disconnect and connect valid power sources, for

CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS
19
example, batteries or an office power supply, to the MPR during operation without the need for a system
shutdown and start cycle. This hot-swap capability allows you to operate Diversity Ranger continuously.
However, one power source must maintain more than the minimum input voltage during operation, that is,
the corresponding LED must be on or blinking.
Important: The MPR does not have an integrated Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). If you disconnect
both power inputs, the MPMs immediately shut off, which can crash Windows on the MPMs.
As explained in MPR Side Panel section on page 11, the PWR IN1 is the primary power input for Ranger.
As long as the input voltage through PWR IN1 remains higher than the minimum input voltage, the system
components will only draw power from PWR IN1. This behavior ensures that batteries at PWR IN1 and PWR
IN2 discharge in sequence.
When the voltage level at PWR IN1 drops below the minimum threshold, for example, when you disconnect
a power source or a discharged battery, and a valid input voltage is present at PWR IN2, for example, from a
second battery, the system begins to draw power from PWR IN2. If the voltage level at PWR IN1 returns to
the valid range, for example, when you attach a charged battery, the system switches back to PWR IN1, that
is, the first served power input. To prevent fast toggling between the power inputs, the input voltage
thresholds do have a certain lag.
Example Scenario
To minimize weight, you start a Diversity Ranger measurement campaign with one battery. When the low
battery alarm sounds, you insert another battery in the second battery bay and connect the battery to PWR
IN2 of the MPR. The MPR switches to the new battery and you remove the first battery.
This scenario still requires that you take two batteries with you. In other words, you could also start off the
campaign with both batteries in place. The system would then automatically switch to the second battery
when the capacity of the first battery falls below the threshold value.

BDC-100W Back Panel

Figure 5-6 BDC-100W Back Panel
Usage
Important: The BDC-100W does not support brown out protection for the vehicle battery, that is, you
need to turn the engine on when the BDC-100W is on; otherwise, turn off the BDC-100W when the
vehicle is off for a longer period.
Installation
To install the BDC-100W
Important: Do not connect a BDC-100W to an OPS-300W as this can destroy both components.
1. Ensure that a battery is connected to PWR IN2 of the MPR.
2. Connect the input cable to the cigarette lighter socket of the vehicle and the output cable to the CHR
input connector of the MPR.
Depending on the power that the system draws, the BDC-100W charger can now provide power to the
system or charge the battery.
Using the BDC-100W as an Additional Power Source for Vehicle Use Case
In this scenario, if the system power consumption remains at 100 W, for example, during measurements with
low power demands or when the system is idle, the BDC-100W provides all of the power and the battery that
is connected to PWR IN2 acts as a UPS.
Important: Fully charge this battery before you start the campaign. Do not connect the battery to PWR
IN1 as this setup would bypass the power input from the charger until the battery completely discharges.
You can, however, connect two batteries to the PWR IN1 and PWR IN2 inputs respectively.
When the consumption rises above 100 W, the battery also provides power and the operation time becomes
limited. To determine the remaining operation time, see the following section.
Operation Time Calculation
If only one battery is connected to Ranger, that is, to PWR IN2, use the following equation to determine the
remaining operation time:
T_operation_BDC-100W_1_batt =0.8 * 400Wh / (P_system 100W)
For example, the following equation is for a campaign that consumes 140W:
Diversity Ranger Hardware Manual
2000 - 2012 SwissQual AG
Chapter 5 | Auxiliary System Components
CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS
30
T_operation_BDC-100W_1_batt =0.8 * 400Wh / (140W 100W) =8h
You can extend the operation time by connecting an additional battery to PWR IN1; however, this battery will
not be recharged. The operation time with the additional battery is:
T_operation_BDC-100W_2_batt =(0.8*400Wh / P_system) +0.8 * 400Wh / (P_system 100W)
For example, for a system that consumes 140W:
T_operation_BDC-100W_2_batt =(0.8*400Wh / 140W) +0.8 * 400Wh / (140W 100W) =10.3 h
Using the BDC-100W Charger to Charge the BAP-400WH Battery Pack
If you connect the BDC-100W to the CHR input of the battery that is connected to PWR IN2 of the MPR, the
charging activity depends on system status. If system is off, consumes less than 100W, or draws power from
PWR IN1, the battery at PWR IN2 charges. The charging time is as follows:
T_charge =1.1 * 400Wh / (100 W P_system)
For example, the charging time for an empty battery that is connected to a powered down system is:
T_charge =1.1 * 400Wh / (100W 0) =4.4 h
If you connect a BAP-400WH battery pack directly to a BDC-100W charger, the charging time is
approximately 4.4h.

BDC-300W Back Panel

Figure 5-9 BDC-300W Back Panel
Usage
Important: The BDC-300W does per default switch off at input voltages below 11.5V, this is to protect
the vehicle battery. However it is recommended, that the BDC-300W is always turned off, when the
vehicle is off for a longer period.
Installation
Due to power considerations, the BDC-300W must be connected directly to the vehicle battery, and installed
by a skilled technician. For a proper installation use the DCM 300W Power Supply Cable it will be supplied
together with the BDC-300W.
The cable is specified as followed:
10mm2 copper wire: Heat, oil, and gasoline resistant
Crimp connections 10mm2: Copper crimp connections

Main voltage connecting plug: High current capacity (50A constant load capacity), fully insulated,
short-circuit as well as reverse-polarity protected
Max voltage drop = 0.7 Volt at max. load (33A): If you exceed these values, you need to check the
cable connections
Main fuse (50A): Must be mounted in the positive cable within 30 cm of the battery

To install the BDC-300W
1. Connect the BDC-300W charger directly to the vehicle battery, by using the DCM 300W Power Supply
Cable.
Important: Do not connect the charger to the cigarette lighter socket.
2. Mount the BDC-300W in the air-conditioned passenger compartment within range of the power input
cable from the battery.
3. Connect the power output cable to CHR of the MPR.
Important: Do not connect the power output cable directly to the OPS-300W power supply as this
connection can destroy both components.
Using the BDC-300W Charger as a Power Source for a Vehicle Use Case
The BDC-300W charger can supply power to the system under a full load and can recharge the battery that
is connected to PWR IN2 of the MPR. The charger cannot recharge a battery that is connected to PWR IN1.
If you connect the output of the BDC-300W to the CHR of the MPR, you can use the following equation to
calculate the charging time for the battery that is connected to PWR IN2:
T_charge =1.1 * 400Wh / (300 W P_system)
For example, the charging time for the empty battery on the system under full load:
T_charge =1.1 * 400Wh / (300W 200W) =4.4
Important: Since the battery at PWR IN2 acts as UPS, ensure that you fully charge the battery before
you start a vehicle based campaign.
Using BDC-300W as a Charger for the BAP-400WH Battery Pack
If you want, you can also connect the BDC-300W charger directly to the BAP-400WH battery pack. The
charging time is approximately 2 hours.
Important: You cannot charge an empty battery at PWR IN1.
Extended features optional installation
The BDC-300W can optionally be controlled by the vehicle ignition signal. This may be useful such that the
BDC-300W does not need to be turned off manually by the user, e.g. it will not be forgotten to switch off the
BDC-300W in case where the vehicle is turned off for a longer period. On the other side, this will also limit
the charge process to be active, while ignition is on.
The BDC-300W has a brown out limit to protect a vehicle battery from getting deep discharged, as described
above already. The BDC-300W however is able to run with input voltage as low as 9.5V, but this feature
must be activated by the user, as described later in this section.

Control the BDC-300W by the ignition signal
1. Remove the wire connection from Pin 1 to Pin 2 of the feature activation connector (green wire shown in
the picture below)
2. Connect the ignition signal (ON =>9.5 - 16V; OFF =><9V) to Pin 2 of the feature activation connector.
Pin 1 is not needed in this case any longer.
3. Turn ON the BDC-300W Main-Switch permanently such that it can be controlled by the ignition signal.
Note: The BDC-300W can be still switched off manually by the Main-Switch =>the main-switch over
rides the ignition signal.


Figure 5-10 BDC-300W extended feature activation connector
Use extended input voltage range
1. Bridge Pin 3 and Pin 4 of the feature activation connector, with a piece of wire (similar to the green wire
shown above).
Important: If the input voltage range is opened down to 9.5V, this may lead to deep discharged vehicle
battery!!! Batteries which are deep discharged are subject to get destroyed or at least degraded
permanently!!! It is in the users responsibility to avoid any deep discharged batteries, if the extended
input voltage range feature is used!!!
Important: Always turn off the BDC-300W, when the vehicle is off for a longer period, as the battery may
get deep discharged down to 9V now!!!

Note: It is may be good practice to used the extended input voltage feature only in combination with
controlling the BDC-300W by the ignition signal. Doing so makes sure the BDC-300W is always switched
of when the vehicle is off!

Vehicle Use Case
For the best cooling performance you need to place Diversity Ranger in the air conditioned passengers
compartment of the vehicle. If possible, keep Ranger in an upright position for maximum airflow.
Important: Secure Diversity Ranger in a location to prevent harm to the passengers in the event of an
accident.
The best practice is to hang the RCU on the back of the front passenger seat with the shoulder straps
draped over the seat and the sternum strap fastened across the front of the seat. If possible, you can also
use the hip strap to secure RCU in place. If you cannot place the RCU in an upright position, put the RCU on
the floor of the vehicle with the straps facing down.
Important: Do not place the RCU on a soft cushioned surface. Such a surface can block the airflow to

+50 C. Do not expose the pack to temperatures greater than +60 C.
Important: In the event of fire, use a CO2 extinguisher. Do not user water.
Maintenance
Replacing Batteries
The MPM contains one lithium battery that has a lifespan of about five years. This battery provides power to
back up the BIOS settings. SwissQual recommends that you replace this battery after 4 years or after the
first incident where the MPM loses data and time settings. To replace the battery, you need to remove the
MPM from the MPR, loosen the 2 screws holding the APC board above the MPM, detach the APC and
replace the BIOS battery. For a description on how to remove the MPM, see the "Exchanging an MPM"
section on page 16.
Note: You cannot test the charge level of the BIOS battery.
The BAP-400WH is a lithium-ion cell based battery pack with a lifespan of about 600 cycles (85% capacity
after 600 cycles). SwissQual recommends that you replace this battery pack when you detect a strong
decrease of usable capacity. If you need to replace this battery pack, contact SwissQual Support.
Important: You cannot ship this battery pack by aircraft. Follow local regulations to dispose of this
battery pack.
Cleaning
Periodically wipe the textile cover and system components with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasives or
solvents. Do not soak the cloth as stray drops can cause short circuits.
Waterproofing
The textile shell of the Ranger Carrying Unit has a water resistant coating that should last several years
without the need for maintenance. If you detect a performance decrease, use a normal textile waterproofing
spray.
