The optional APPM is a modified battery pack that shuts down the output of the X2 CEW after five seconds and also contains a built-in speaker that alerts you to the impending shut down. The APPM
icon will be displayed in the top left corner of the CID when the CEW detects that an APPM is installed.
Under stressful situations, audio exclusion might prevent you from hearing the alert from the APPM.
There are two ways your agency can configure your CEW to work with the APPM. With the default option, shut down will occur five seconds after a trigger-initiated energy burst, but ARC switch functioning will not be affected. With the other option, shut down will occur after 5 seconds whether you press the trigger or the ARC switch. To use the second option, the agency must configure the CEW through Axon Evidence.
Trigger-Initiated Shut Down Only Option - Arc Switch Override
The APPM provides an audible beeping alert for the last two seconds of a trigger-initiated cycle before automatically shutting down the cycle. After a 5-second deployment duration, the energy burst will stop even if your finger is still pulling the trigger switch. To re-energize the deployed cartridge, first ensure that your finger is of the trigger switch, and then press the ARC switch.
With the APPM's trigger-initiated shut down option, pressing the ARC switch before the 5-second, trigger initiated cycle has ended and holding the ARC switch will cause the cycle to continue past the 5-second limit.
Trigger- and ARC Switch-Initiated Shut Down Option
The APPM provides an audible beeping alert for the last two seconds of a trigger- or ARC switch-initiated cycle before automatically shutting down the cycle. After a 5-second deployment duration, the energy burst will stop even if your finger is still pulling the trigger switch or pressing on the ARC switch. The audible beeping alert will continue to sound until the trigger switch or ARC switch is
released. To reenergize the deployed cartridge, first ensure that your finger is off the trigger switch, and then press the ARC switch. To reenergize the ARC switch, remove your finger from the ARC switch and re-press the ARC switch.
Replacing the APPM with a Different Battery Pack
Your CEW will recognize the APPM as a unique type of battery pack. If you remove the APPM and replace it with a different type of battery pack, the X2 CEW will return to its normal configuration. That is, there will no longer be an audio alert, and the energy cycle will continue after five seconds if your finger is still holding down the trigger or ARC switch. Always confirm that the CEW performs as expected before returning it to duty after changing any battery pack.
Remove the cartridges before testing the CEW function. See the Loading and unloading smart cartridges section in this manual for more information.
Tactical Performance Power Magazine (TPPM) Battery Pack
The optional TPPM has an extension to provide a larger grip on the CEW. The TPPM does not hold an extra cartridge.
