The BC3010 Charging Station is a 10-Tag charger for the BlueCats BC2611 Tag.

The Charging Station can fully charge a depleted Tag in less than six hours. The Charging Status LED on the SafetyTag blinks green while charging, then turns solid green when fully charged.

Up to four Charging Stations can be daisy-chained together off of one power supply, making infrastructure requirements minimal. Charging Stations can be wall or table-mounted to best suit your environment.

Wall Mounting

To securely mount a BC3010 Charging Station to a wall:

  1. Remove the Charging Station from the packing box. 

  2. Attach the large angled brackets (not the small flat brackets) using the provided machine screws.

    Note: Install the angled brackets so that the Charging Station is tilted slightly up (Figure 4).

  3. Using secure mounting practices (screws into studs or drywall anchors), secure the Charging Station to the wall. 

  4. Attach the power supply cable to the power supply connector on the Charging Station (Figure 3).

  5. Plug the Charging Station into power using the provided power supply.

Daisy-Chaining (Table or Wall Mount)

Up to four BC3010 Charging Stations can be daisy-chained together to receive power from a single power supply. You can daisy-chain Charging Stations in either the table or wall-mounted configuration.

Note: No more than four Charging Stations may be connected to a single power supply.  

To securely daisy-chain Charging Stations:

  1. If desired, attach the provided flat metal brackets to the side mounting location on the back of each Charging Station in the chain. These brackets can secure the Charging Stations to each other.
  2. Connect the Daisy Chain cable to the Daisy Chain connector on the first Charging Station, which should be connected to the power supply (as shown on the left Charging Station in Figure 6).
  3. Connect the other end of the Daisy Chain cable to the power supply connector on the second Charging Station (the right Charging Station in Figure 6).
  4. As needed, create a chain of up to four total Charging Stations by connecting additional Daisy Chain cables to subsequent Charging Stations as done in steps 1-3.

Operating Instructions

To charge a BC2611 SafetyTag, place it securely within one of the available slots on a powered Charging Station. The Charge LED on the SafetyTag will blink green while charging, and turn solid green when completely charged. The Charging Station can charge a total of 10 SafetyTags.
