Periodically clean the spring and threads inside the battery compartment as well as the spring and threads of the battery end cap to ensure a proper power connection with the batteries. Use an emery cloth or wire brush to remove any oxidation that has built up. Be careful not to damage the battery cap O-ring; remove it while cleaning if necessary. After cleaning, use a conductive lubricant on the battery cap threads to keep it from binding in the battery compartment
For better battery performance, all DCI battery-powered transmitters ship with both a special battery contact spring and a nickel-based anti-seize lubricant on the battery end cap to aid in electrical contact.
Before use, inspect the battery cap O-ring for damage that may allow water to enter the battery compartment. Replace the O-ring if the one installed becomes damaged.
Do not use chemicals to clean the transmitter.
Placing tape around the fiberglass tube of the transmitter, if space allows, will keep the fiberglass protected from most corrosive and abrasive environmental wear. Do not tape over the IR port as this will interfere with IR communication.
Falcon 19- and 15-inch transmitters have a threaded hole (1/4”-20 thread) in the battery cap to allow the use of an insertion/extraction tool for installing and removing the transmitters in end-load housings. Ensure this hole remains clear of debris.
