Smart Cartridges General Instructions
Never attempt to open or modify a Smart cartridge. Tampering with a Smart cartridge could cause it to fire or malfunction (which may result in serious injury).
Remove the Smart cartridge from the X2 CEW before inspection.
Before installing and using a Smart cartridge, inspect the blast doors for cracks. The inspection should include checking the break seam running down the center and both sides of the front of the blast door. If the blast doors are cracked, remove the Smart cartridge from service.
Also, inspect the Arc deflector metalized labels. Over time, the labels may show signs of wear. This is normal. If the labels have worn away completely or fallen of, remove the Smart cartridge from service.
The X2 CEW can determine whether the Smart cartridges loaded in the cartridge bays have been expended or not. The CEW also can determine whether all the cartridge bays are loaded or not. This means the CEW will not select an empty bay or an expended cartridge when a live cartridge is available. Cartridge status is displayed on the CID.
