Safety Instructions
Pr
eli
mi
na
ry
Use the following safety guidelines to help protect yourself and PWS-770.
 Do not attempt to service the PWS-770 yourself. Always follow installation
instructions closely.
 Be sure that nothing rests on the AC adapter's power cable and that the cable is
not located where it can be tripped over or stepped on.
 Do not cover the AC adaptor with papers or other items that will reduce cooling;
also, do not use the AC adapter while it is inside a carrying case.
 Use only the AC adapter, power cord, and batteries that are approved for use
with this PWS-770. Use of another type of battery or AC adapter may cause risk
of fire or explosion.
 If you use an extension cable with the AC adapter, ensure that the total ampere
rating of the products plugged in to the extension cable does not exceed the
ampere rating of the extension cable.
 When you move the PWS-770 between environments with very different temperature and/ore humidity ranges, condensation may form on or within the
PWS-770. To avoid damaging the PWS-770, allow sufficient time for the moisture to evaporate before using the PWS-770.
 When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain relief loop,
not on the cable itself. As you pull out the connector, keep it evenly aligned to
avoid bending any connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable make sure
both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire, use only No.26 AWG or larger (e.g., 24 AWG)
UL Listed or CSA Certified Telecommunication Line Cord.

Battery Charge Notice
eli
mi
It is important to consider the environment temperature whenever you are charging
the Lithium-Ion battery pack. The process is more efficient at normal room temperature or slightly cooler. It is essential that you charge batteries within the stated range
of 0°C to 50°C. Charging batteries outside of the specified range could damage the
batteries and shorten their charging life cycle.
Pr
Storage and Safety Notice
Although charge Lithium-Ion batteries may be left unused for several months, their
capacity may be depleted due to the build up of internal resistance. If this happens
they will require recharging prior to use. Lithium-Ion batteries may be stored at temperatures between -20°C to 50°C, however they may be depleted more rapidly at the
high end of this range. It is recommended to store batteries within normal room temperature ranges.
