Welcome to the community of AIR+ users. With the SPORTident Active Card (SIAC) you have purchased a high-quality product that combines three functions. In AIR+ mode you punch contactlessly, with a distance between SIAC and SPORTident Control Station of up to 3 m, depending on the control station used. In classic punching mode the SIAC works like an SI-Card10 and is therefore a backup system in itself. Lastly, the SIAC can transmit its punches via short range radio to a receiving dongle or modem.
The lifetime of the SIAC battery is influenced by how it is used. Regularly it will work for up to four years and about 100 clearing cycles. Register your SIAC with us and we will inform you in time when a battery replacement is necessary—so you don't have to worry about it.
You can measure the voltage of the SIAC's battery by using an ordinary SPORTident station configured as "SIAC battery test".
Alternatively, the SIAC's integrated battery voltage measurement, with a beeping signal, will indicate the need for a battery replacement.
Finally, you can also check the battery status (age, clear count, voltage, and others) with the SPORTident software Config+ together with a readout station.
