USA Notification
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.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to
4 RJ-45 Modular Cabling
Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
The following modular adapters are available
when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
from Avocent to convert RJ-45 modular
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
