This cradle is designed for use with the Olympus DS5000 and DS5000iD digital recorders. It is a direct replacement for the USB cradle that ships with the DS-5000 and DS-5000iD recorders. The CR-10 is intended to replace a missing unit or as a second unit for use at another location.
This docking station is not only a nice stand to place your dictation device on your desk. It is multi-functional and connects via USB cable to your computer so you can download your voice files quickly and easily. While connected to a switched-on PC it recharges the inserted battery pack automatically (USB charge function needs to be activated via menu). If you prefer to charge your battery independently from the PC, just connect the stand to the AC power adapter. The outstanding feature is that it allows hands free dictation. The optional RS-28 or RS-50 footswitch connected to the docking station allows hands free recording/ playback control.
