Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug(UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face
of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted. If the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same
colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain
a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do NOT connect the plug to
a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:–
BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:–
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK. The wire coloured
BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING:
DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE LETTER E OR BY
THE EARTH SYMBOL
, OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.
