Each OSI WAMS device operates using four 'AA' alkaline batteries. Approximately 120,000 transactions can be completed using one set of batteries. OSI recommends replacing the batteries once a year. Additionally, each WAMS device has the ability to operate using external 12-24 VDC/VAC and rely on the four 'AA' cells for backup.
To operate the OSI WAMS software, the host computer must be operating the latest versions of Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000, Windows Service Pack 2, Internet Information Services (IIS) including the .NET Framework 1.1 and .NET Framework 2.0.
Existing OSI devices can be retrofitted to the WAMS technology. Contact the factory for more information.
