Observant Support

Created: ; updated: .

To prevent accidental power-down of a C3 unit, the process to switch off the unit consists of two presses of the power button, with specific timing.

To power down a C3:

  1. Remove all power sources from the C3 (plug pack or solar panel input).

  2. Briefly press and release the power button
  3. Wait one second
  4. Press and hold the power button until the C3 issues one long beep and all indicator lights turn off
  5. Release the power button and confirm that all C3 indicator lights are off, signifying that the unit has powered down
