IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Note on monitor placement
•
The setup location must not be extremely hot,
cold, humid or dusty. Heat and cold can impair
the functionality of the monitor. Humidity and dust
can cause the monitor to fail.
•
Do not place the monitor near heaters such as
radiators or the like. Do not expose the monitor
to mechanical vibrations or jarring.
•
Position the monitor so that no direct light or sun
strikes the screen, which could cause reflections
that reduce the quality of the image.
Notes on power connection
Only use the power cord designated for use in
your country.
This monitor is ENERGY STAR ® -compatible.
MAXDATA is an ENERGY STAR® partner and
guarantees that this device complies with the
ENERGY STAR® guidelines for optimizing power
consumption.
Avoid covering the ventilation slots. Air circulation is necessary to prevent the monitor from
overheating. If the air circulation is restricted it
could cause fire or damage the monitor.
•
Do not use any solvents to clean the monitor, as
the housing could be damaged. For more information about cleaning the monitor, please see
“Caring for Your LCD Monitor”.
Never open the monitor housing yourself. There
is a danger of electric shock and other hazards.
The monitor may only be opened and serviced
by qualified professionals.
Note on resolution
All resolutions provided by the graphics card that
deviate form the physical resolution of the panel
are adjusted by interpolation. This can impair the
image quality.
The wall outlet should be within easy reach. Pulling the power plug is the only way to disconnect
the monitor from the power source.
•
•
Notes on ergonomics
To protect your eyes, neck and shoulder muscles
when working with a computer, we recommend
that you maintain a viewing distance of between
50 and 75 cm from the monitor. Furthermore, you
should regularly focus on an object around 6 m
away from you to help your eyes relax. Ergonomically, your posture is best when elbows, pelvis,
knees and ankles are all at right angles.
Safety instructions for operation
The power cord must not be damaged. Do not
place any objects on the power cord and make
sure it does not have any knots. To unplug the
cord, always pull on the plug and not on the cable
itself. Damage to the power cord may result in fire
or cause electric shocks.
CARING FOR YOUR LCD MONITOR
•
First, unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
•
If the LCD screen is extremely dirty, clean it with a
moist cloth. Use only warm water and then wipe the
monitor dry. Solvents or harsh cleaners can damage
the housing. Clean the display surface only with a
soft cloth, otherwise you may damage the display’s
coating.
•
If the monitor is only slightly dirty, clean it using a
soft, dry and antistatic cloth.
•
The LCD monitor’s screen surface is very sensitive.
Please avoid any contact with the surface (finger,
pencil, etc.) and be especially cautious during
transportation since jolts and shocks can cause the
screen to become scratched (always use the original
packaging).
WALL MOUNTING
The Belinea monitor is shipped with the standard desktop configuration. However, you can optionally mount the
device on a wall or on a monitor swivel arm (optional accessory). Please follow the corresponding instructions
(4-hole assembly with a spacing of 4 × 4 inches (100 × 100 mm) according to the international VESA FDMI standard).

Congratulations!
You have just purchased a TCO’99 approved and labelled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your
purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics
products.
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’99 scheme which provides for an international environmental and quality labelling of personal
computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation), Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration) and
SEMKO AB.
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, reduction of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and
electrical safety.
Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment.
The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in
the products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these
potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal)
and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climateinfluencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby
consumes a lot of energy.
What does the environmenal labelling involve?
The environmental demands has been developed by Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation). These
demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated
solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must
be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to
a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may be
ordered from:
TCO Development - SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden - Fax: +46 8 782 92 07 - Email (Internet): development@tco.se
Current information regarding TCO’99 approved and labelled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/
Environmental requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread
of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and
those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or
chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to
the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development
may occur.
The relevant TCO’99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically
bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.
Cadmium* *
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous
system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that batteries, the colour-generating layers of display screens and the
electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury * *
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO’99
requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics
components associated with the labelled unit. There is however one exception. Mercury is, for the time being, permitted in the back light system of flat
panel monitors as there today is no commercially available alternative. TCO aims on removing this exception when a mercury free alternative is
available.
CFCs (freons)
The relevant TCO’99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs
(freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere,
causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence.
