Do not allow this unit to be exposed to moisture (e.g. dripping or
splashing). It is recommended that the FM band be used wherever
possible as better results in terms of quality and freedom from interference will usually be obtained than on the MW or LW bands.
This apparatus must be protected by a 3A fuse (BS1362) in a 13A plug
(BS1363). If another type of plug is used a 5A fuse should be fitted in the
plug, adaptor or distribution board.
IF IN DOUBT - CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
Mains supply
The CR2002 will operate from a supply of AC 230volts, 50Hz

For your convenience this product is supplied with a plug which is fitted
with a fuse of the appropriate rating. If the plug supplied is not suitable for
your socket outlet, it should be removed by unscrewing the plug top, the
terminal screws and removing the cable.
The correct style of plug to suit your household together with a correctly
rated fuse should be fitted.
IF IN DOUBT - CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN
