IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING!
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
WARNING:
Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
WARNING:
Use of controls, adjustments, or performance of
procedures other than those specified here can results
in hazardous radiation exposure.
 Read operator’s manual carefully. Learn the applications and limitations, as well as the specific potential
hazards, related to this device. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
 Do not operate battery devices in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids,
gases or dust. Battery devices create sparks which may
ignite the dust or fumes.
 Do not disassemble the device. Contact with internal
parts may increase the risk of electric shock or cause
damage to the device.
 Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
device in unexpected situations.
 Do not store the device in an area of high heat or
humidity. Do not expose the device to extended high
heat from the sun (such as on a vehicle dashboard.)
To reduce the risk of serious personal injury, do not
store outside or in vehicles. Damage to the device or
the battery can result.
 Do not expose device to rain or wet conditions. Water
entering a device will increase the risk of electric shock.
 Use the device in accordance with these instructions
and in the manner intended for the device, taking into
account the environmental conditions and the work to
be performed. Use of the device for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
 The electrode measurement pins are extremely sharp.
Use care when handling this device. Cover the pins with
the protective cap when the device is not in use.
 Keep device away from children and do not allow them
to handle. Store in a secure area away from children.
 Handle the device with care. Treat it as you would any
other optical device such as a camera or binoculars.
 Avoid exposing the device to shock, continuous
vibration, or extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Damage to the device and/or serious injury to the user
could result.
 Ensure the device is disconnected before inserting or
changing batteries.
 Do not mix old and new batteries or different brands
of batteries.
 Remove batteries from the device when not in use for
an extended time.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Always replace the alkaline battery with the same type
of alkaline battery. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
 This device should not be operated unless the battery
compartment is closed.
 Do not place battery devices or their batteries near
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
 Do not crush, drop or damage battery. Do not use
batteries that have been dropped or received a sharp
blow. A damaged battery is subject to explosion. Properly
dispose of a dropped or damaged battery immediately.
 Batteries can explode in the presence of a source
of ignition, such as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of
serious personal injury, never use any battery device in
the presence of open flame. An exploded battery can
propel debris and chemicals. If exposed, flush with water
immediately.
 Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, battery leakage may occur. If liquid comes in contact with
your skin, wash immediately with soap and water. If
liquid gets into your eyes, flush them with clean water
for at least 10 minutes, then seek immediate medical
attention. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious
personal injury.
 Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently and
use them to instruct others who may use this device. If you
loan someone this device, loan them these instructions
also.
