About this task

Important: Use only NiMH battery packs approved for use with the FX30E/FX60E.


  1. If you are replacing an existing battery in a controller not currently configured for SRAM usage, back up the FX30E/FX60E's configuration to your work using FX Workbench.
  2. If a station is running, stop the station using the platform Application Director view.
  3. Remove all power from the FX30E/FX60E. Wait for LED activity to stop (if a battery is already installed, this may take a minute or two).
  4. Remove the cover. See Removing and replacing the cover. Note the Option Slot area where the NiMH battery assembly mounts.
  5. If a battery assembly is already mounted, unplug the battery from the connector on the controller board. See Figure 1.
  6. Remove the four screws that secure both option slot end plates (and if installed, the existing battery assembly bracket). Set the screws aside. Remove any existing battery assembly (if applicable).
  7. Plug the battery connector plug of the new battery assembly into the battery connector on the controller. See Figure 1.
  8. Set the new NiMH battery assembly on top of the option card slots, over the option card end plates. Ensure the bracket mounting holes are aligned with the standoffs.
  9. Place the four screws through the battery bracket, option card end plates, and into the standoffs on the controller's base board. Using a screwdriver, hand-tighten the screws.
  10. Replace the cover.
  11. Restore power to the FX30E/FX60E and verify normal operation.
