The SBC840M networked charger provides a compact charging and storage solution for up to 8 SB910M batteries. The charger is network-enabled to allow for remote monitoring of charger and battery parameters using Shure Wireless Workbench® software.
Note: Model availability depends on region. See your local Shure dealer or distributor for details.
① Power LED
② Reset Button
Press and hold to restore charger factory settings, including network settings.
③ Storage Mode Button
Press and hold to activate or deactivate storage mode, which charges or discharges batteries to the optimal voltage for long-term storage.
④ Charging Status LED
See LED Indicators for details.
⑤ Error LED
Flashes amber to indicate a problem charging batteries. Errors are also displayed in Wireless Workbench. See LED Indicators for details.
⑥ Charging Slots
Insert 1 SB910M battery.
⑦ Ethernet Port
Connect to a network to remotely monitor batteries and control charger settings using Wireless Workbench.
⑧ Ethernet Link Speed LED (Amber)
⑨ Ethernet Status LED (Green)
⑩ Power Input
Connect to power supply.
The charger has no power switch. When plugged in, the power LED illuminates. The charging LEDs illuminate after batteries are inserted.
To charge, place batteries into the charging bays with the battery contacts facing down. The LEDs illuminate to indicate battery status.
|Charge status LED red||Charging|
|Charge status LED green||Charging complete|
|Error LED amber flashing||Charging stopped. To resume charging, try these solutions:
||Battery too warm. Charging stops at 80% of full capacity. Allow battery to cool below 45°C to resume charging to full capacity.|
||Charging complete, but battery temperature is too warm or cold (over 60°C or below 0°C).|
|Power LED red||Charger is in storage mode. Batteries are charging or discharging to storage voltage.|
||Batteries are ready for storage.|
||Batteries are approaching storage voltage.|
|Power LED white flashing||Charger firmware is being updated.|
|All LEDs flashing||Hardware identification.|
Tip: Wireless Workbench provides more detailed battery status information.
To store batteries for longer than 8 days, use the charger's storage mode. Each battery will be charged or discharged to 3.8 volts, which is ideal for long-term storage.
To enter storage mode, press and hold storage for 3 seconds until the power LED turns red. The batteries will begin charging or discharging to 3.8 volts, which may take several hours. The LEDs indicate when the battery is approaching storage voltage or at storage voltage.
To exit storage mode, press and hold storage. The power LED changes to white and batteries resume charging normally.
When batteries are ready for storage, remove them from the charger and place in a temperature-controlled area. Recommended battery storage temperature is 10°C (50°F) to 25°C (77°F).
Note: Run storage mode once every 6 months to maintain the storage voltage.
Press and hold reset to restore factory settings. All LEDs will flash and turn off as the charger reboots.
IP addressing will be set to automatic, and charger will be in charging mode.
Use Ethernet cables to connect chargers to a network to monitor charging, battery health, and other parameters.
For most installations, use a star network topology with an Ethernet switch. For smaller installations, you can connect chargers to each other in a series.
Tip: Use a star network topology to update charger firmware. If chargers are connected to each other in a series, firmware updates may cause network connection problems.
Wireless Workbench lets you control and monitor devices over the network. To get started, visit http://www.shure.com/wwb and download Wireless Workbench software. Wireless Workbench communicates with connected devices over a standard Ethernet network.
Required equipment: Shure device, computer with Wireless Workbench installed, Cat 5 (or better) Ethernet cable, and router or network switch

Wireless Workbench provides detailed information for batteries currently docked in the charger. You can also view battery error notifications and change the charger's network settings.
Click the Inventory tab to view your charger in Wireless Workbench. The charger properties panel provides different battery statistics:
Displays charge as a percentage of the total battery capacity. Also shows time remaining to full charge.
Displays health of selected battery as a percentage of the charge capacity of a new battery. Charge capacity (battery life when fully charged) will decline as a result of repeated charge cycles, age, or storage conditions.
Displays total number of times that the battery has undergone one full count of discharge and charge. Recharging after discharging halfway counts as one half of a cycle. Recharging after discharging a quarter of the way counts as one quarter of a cycle.
Displays battery temperature (in Celsius and Fahrenheit) and status.
To adjust charger network settings, open the charger properties panel in Wireless Workbench. Click the gear icon to set the IP mode and IP address, view the MAC address, and view firmware version.
Firmware is embedded software in each component that controls functionality. Periodically, new versions of firmware are developed to incorporate additional features and enhancements. To take advantage of design improvements, new versions of the firmware can be downloaded and installed using the Shure Update Utility tool.
Software is available for download from http://www.shure.com/update-utility.
The SBC840M networked charging station connects to external control systems such as AMX or Crestron via the Ethernet. For a comprehensive list of command strings, visit the product page at https://www.shure.com.
Use power save mode to charge batteries with the charger’s network functionality off.
Note: The charger will power off 30 minutes after it finishes charging batteries. Press reset or storage to turn it on.
Three mounting points on the bottom of the charger fit #6 round or pan head screws. Mount to a hard surface using 3 screws that are long enough to secure the charger. To mount, orient the charger so that the 2 mounting points are on top as shown.
