Xentry Connect C5 Initial Use:


1 Insert the Battery Pack

– Do not touch the terminals of the battery pack and the computer. Doing so can

make the terminals dirty or damaged, and may cause malfunction of the battery

pack and the computer.

– Be sure to attach the cover for use.

In details…

Step 1: Slide the latch (A) in the direction of the arrow.

Step 2: Open the cover.


Step 3: Insert the battery pack until it securely fits the connector.


Step 4: Close the cover until it clicks.

Step 5: Slide the latch (A) in the direction of the arrow.


To remove the battery pack

In step 3 above, pull the tab (B) of the battery pack.


Make sure the latch is securely locked. Otherwise the battery pack may fall

when you carry the computer.


Note that the computer consumes electricity even when the computer power is

off. If the battery pack is fully charged, the battery will fully discharge in the following period of time:

  • When power is off: Approx. 9 weeks
  • In sleep ( )/standby ( ): Approx. 4 days
  • In hibernation: Approx. 8 days

If “Wake Up from LAN” is disabled, the period of time in sleep will become

slightly longer, and the period of time in hibernation will become about the same

as during power-off.

When the DC plug is not connected to the computer, disconnect the AC cord

from your AC wall outlet. Power is consumed simply by having the AC adaptor

plugged into an electrical outlet.

2 Connect your computer to a power outlet, and connect the

external keyboard and mouse to the USB ports.

A Slide the latch in the direction of the arrow.

B Open the cover.

C Connect the AC adapter.

The battery charging starts automatically.

D Slide the latch of one of the three USB ports in the direction of the arrow.

E Open the cover.

F Slide the latch of another USB port in the direction of the arrow.

G Open the cover.

H Connect the external keyboard and mouse to the USB ports.


– Do not disconnect the AC adapter and do not switch the wireless switch to on

until the first-time operation procedure is completed.

– When using the computer for the first time, do not connect any peripheral device

except the battery pack, AC adapter, external keyboard and mouse.

– Handling the AC adapter

Problems such as sudden voltage drops may arise during periods of thunder

and lightning. Since this could adversely affect your computer, an uninterruptible

power source (UPS) is highly recommended unless running from the

battery pack alone.

3 Turn on the computer and run Xentry/DAS software for use

Software: All MB diagnostic software 2017.9 is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.

The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 – 32-bit or Windows 8 – 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer

The licensing system is reworked – now licenses are stored on MB servers – Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.
