v94 v95 1417 1417 The coin cell battery used provides power for the GSC to run while board power is removed (or in some cases when the GSC has removed the board's primary power via GSC sleep). 1418 1418 1419 1420 1421 1422 1423 1424 1419 1425 The shelf life of the battery defines how long the GSC retains power and thus its settings such as the RTC when board power is removed and depends on the version of the GSC: 1420 1426 * GSCv3 (Newport and newer Ventana models): approximately 5.7 years … … 1423 1429 1424 1430 == Battery Replacement 1431 1425 1432 Battery Replacement Details: 1426 * A BR1225 coin cell battery is used. 1433 * A BR1225 coin cell battery is used. (older models) 1434 * Newer models use a Seiko Instruments MS621T [https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/seiko-instruments/MS621T/6137712 Digi-Key 728-1078-ND] (described above) 1427 1435 * While primary board power is removed, the GSC battery can be removed for about 10 seconds before power is lost to the GSC. This gives you a small window of time to replace the battery without losing data such as RTC values. If longer then 10 seconds then the GSC will be reset. 1428 1436 * !Laguna/Ventana ('''does not apply to Newport boards'''): If battery is replaced while board power is off, '''you must apply board power momentarily afterwards to reset the GSC into the proper operational state. If power is not applied the drain on the battery will be fairly large and will deplete the battery within about 3-4 weeks.'''.
