WARNING:
The precautions outlined in this chapter should be strictly followed.
Failure to follow these precautions may result in permanent damage to
the AFOLUX LX series.
A.1 Safety Precautions
Please follow the safety precautions outlined in the sections that follow:
A.1.1 General Safety Precautions
Please ensure the following safety precautions are adhered to at all times.
Follow the electrostatic precautions outlined below whenever the AFOLUX
LX series is opened.
Make sure the power is turned off and the power cord is disconnected
whenever the AFOLUX LX series is being installed, moved or modified.
Do not apply voltage levels that exceed the specified voltage range.
Doing so may cause fire and/or an electrical shock.
Electric shocks can occur if the AFOLUX LX series chassis is opened when
the AFOLUX LX series is running.
Do not drop or insert any objects into the ventilation openings of the
AFOLUX LX series.
If considerable amounts of dust, water, or fluids enter the AFOLUX LX
series, turn off the power supply immediately, unplug the power cord, and
contact the AFOLUX LX series vendor.

Page 101
AFOLUX LX Series Flat Panel PC
A.1.2 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the AFOLUX
LX series may result in permanent damage to the AFOLUX LX series
and severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the AFOLUX LX series. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is
therefore critical that whenever the AFOLUX LX series is opened and any of the electrical
components are handled, the following anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.
Wear an anti-static wristband: Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging any electrical component.
Self-grounding: Before handling any electrical component, touch any
grounded conducting material. During the time the electrical component is
handled, frequently touch any conducting materials that are connected to the
ground.
Use an anti-static pad: When configuring or working with an electrical
component, place it on an antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD
damage.
Only handle the edges of the electrical component: When handling the
electrical component, hold the electrical component by its edges.
A.2 Maintenance and Cleaning Precautions
When maintaining or cleaning the AFOLUX LX series, please follow the guidelines below.
A.2.1 Maintenance and Cleaning
Prior to cleaning any part or component of the AFOLUX LX series, please read the details
below.
Page 102
AFOLUX LX Series Flat Panel PC
Except for the LCD panel, never spray or squirt liquids directly onto any other
components. To clean the LCD panel, gently wipe it with a piece of soft dry
cloth or a slightly moistened cloth.
The interior of the AFOLUX LX series does not require cleaning. Keep fluids
away from the AFOLUX LX series interior.
Be cautious of all small removable components when vacuuming the
AFOLUX LX series.
Turn the AFOLUX LX series off before cleaning the AFOLUX LX series.
Never drop any objects or liquids through the openings of the AFOLUX LX
series.
Be cautious of any possible allergic reactions to solvents or chemicals used
when cleaning the AFOLUX LX series.
Avoid eating, drinking and smoking within vicinity of the AFOLUX LX series.
A.2.2 Cleaning Tools
Some components in the AFOLUX LX series may only be cleaned using a product
specifically designed for the purpose. In such case, the product will be explicitly mentioned
in the cleaning tips. Below is a list of items to use when cleaning the AFOLUX LX series.
Cloth – Although paper towels or tissues can be used, a soft, clean piece of
cloth is recommended when cleaning the AFOLUX LX series.
Water or rubbing alcohol – A cloth moistened with water or rubbing alcohol
can be used to clean the AFOLUX LX series.
Using solvents – The use of solvents is not recommended when cleaning the
AFOLUX LX series as they may damage the plastic parts.
Vacuum cleaner – Using a vacuum specifically designed for computers is
one of the best methods of cleaning the AFOLUX LX series. Dust and dirt can
restrict the airflow in the AFOLUX LX series and cause its circuitry to corrode.
Cotton swabs - Cotton swaps moistened with rubbing alcohol or water are
excellent tools for wiping hard to reach areas.
Foam swabs - Whenever possible, it is best to use lint free swabs such as
foam swabs for cleaning.

D Watchdog Timer
Page 114
AFOLUX LX Series Flat Panel PC
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer:
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. While the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the Watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.

NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system resets.
