Air Cleaner Control for my Aprilaire Model 5000 - Does the blue backlight always stay on? and what are the batteries for?

Consumer question:

I just installed the Air Cleaner Control for my Aprilaire Model 5000 - Does the blue backlight always stay on? and what are the batteries for?

Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us.  The batteries are for installations where the control is not receiving it's power from the thermostat or the HVAC equipment.  The blue light on the screen will stay on continuous if the control is powered continuously from the thermostat or the HVAC equipment.  If the unit is powered by batteries, then the blue back light will only stay lit after pushing a button on the control for 5-10 seconds.  If your control is receiving power from the thermostat or the HVAC equipment and has batteries, then the batteries are a back up power source in case of a power outage.
 
Thank you for this opportunity to be of assistance.
