Typical Applications
Multi Column Selection
With the 6 position selection valve (G4234A/B) and the capillary kit for
Column Selection you can set up your system for use with up to 6 columns as
displayed in Figure 3 on page 14. Or you can use the system with 5 columns
and one flow path for flow injection analysis or for flushing the system. This
setup allows you to switch between these columns for faster method
development or method validation. The multi-column setup might also be
used, if several operators are sharing system.

Sample Enrichment and Sample Cleanup
2pos/6port valve (p/n G4231A/B) and 2pos/10port valve (p/n G4232A/B)
Advantages:
• Easy automation of sample preparation
• Higher reproducibility
• Increased productivity and sensitivity
Sample cleanup is essential for samples with complex matrices, such as
biological fluids, food extracts and waste water. Before injection into a LC or
LC/MS system, the sample matrix must be separated from the analytes of
interest. Otherwise, contaminants can disrupt separation and detection or
even damage the analytical column.

Introduction to the Agilent 1290 Infinity Valve Drive and Valve Heads
Typical Applications
Enrichment methods
Enrichment methods are the technique of choice to obtain highest sensitivity
and to remove the sample matrix in such applications as proteomics, drug
metabolism and environmental trace analysis. The analytes are retained and
concentrated onto the pre-column, while the sample matrix is passed to waste.
After the valve switch, a second pump backflushes the analytes out of the
pre-column onto the separation column. This allows injection of large volumes
onto the pre-column, significantly expanding sensitivity in the range of ten to
several thousands.
Stripping methods
Stripping methods handle analytes and matrices in the opposite way to
enrichment methods. Matrix components are retained on the pre-column
while the analytes pass through to the separation column. After the valve
switches, an additional pump backflushes the matrix components out of the
pre-column to waste, while the analytes are separated on the main column.
Backflushing prepares the pre-column for the next injection.
Alternating Column Regeneration
Only 2pos/10port valve (p/n G4232A/B)
Advantages:
• High sample throughput
• Increased productivity
• High efficiency
Alternating column regeneration is a convenient way to increase the sample
throughput. The Agilent 1200 Infinity Series 2 position/ 10 port valves can be
used to increase the efficiency in laboratories running large amounts of
samples. Gradient elution is a common technique for separation of complex
samples in liquid chromatography, which requires column regeneration before
the subsequent run is started. Using alternating column regeneration valuable
time for the analysis is saved. Core of the alternating column regeneration is
the Agilent 1200 Infinity Series 2 position / 10 port valves, which allows
simultaneous analysis on one column while a second identical column is
flushed and equilibrated.

Bio-inert Materials
For the Agilent 1260 Infinity Bio-inert LC system, Agilent Technologies uses
highest quality materials in the flow path (also referred to as wetted parts),
which are widely accepted by life scientists, as they are known for optimum
inertness to biological samples and ensure best compatibility with common
samples and solvents over a wide pH range. Explicitly, the complete flow path
is free of stainless steel and free of other alloys containing metals such as iron,
nickel, cobalt, chromium, molybdenum or copper, which can interfere with
biological samples. The flow downstream of the sample introduction contains
no metals whatsoever.

Introduction to the Agilent 1290 Infinity Valve Drive and Valve Heads
Early Maintenance Feedback
1
Early Maintenance Feedback
Maintenance requires the exchange of components which are subject to wear
or stress. Ideally, the frequency at which components are exchanged should be
based on the intensity of usage of the module and the analytical conditions,
and not on a predefined time interval. The early maintenance feedback (EMF)
feature monitors the usage of specific components in the instrument, and
provides feedback when the user-selectable limits have been exceeded. The
visual feedback in the user interface provides an indication that maintenance
procedures should be scheduled.
EMF Counters
EMF counters increment with use and can be assigned a maximum limit which
provides visual feedback in the user interface when the limit is exceeded.
Some counters can be reset to zero after the required maintenance procedure.
Using the EMF Counters
The user-settable EMF limits for the EMF Counters enable the early maintenance
feedback to be adapted to specific user requirements. The useful maintenance
cycle is dependent on the requirements for use. Therefore, the definition of the
maximum limits need to be determined based on the specific operating
conditions of the instrument.
Setting the EMF Limits
The setting of the EMF limits must be optimized over one or two maintenance
cycles. Initially the default EMF limits should be set. When instrument
performance indicates maintenance is necessary, take note of the values
displayed by the EMF counters. Enter these values (or values slightly less than
the displayed values) as EMF limits, and then reset the EMF counters to zero.
The next time the EMF counters exceed the new EMF limits, the EMF flag will be
displayed, providing a reminder that maintenance needs to be scheduled.

A suitable environment is important to ensure optimal performance of the
instrument.
Power Considerations
The module power supply has wide ranging capability. It accepts any line
voltage in the range described in Table 3 on page 29. Consequently there is no
voltage selector in the rear of the module. There are also no externally
accessible fuses, because automatic electronic fuses are implemented in the
power supply.
WA R N I N G
Hazard of electrical shock or damage of your instrumentation
can result, if the devices are connected to a line voltage higher than specified.
➔ Connect your instrument to the specified line voltage only.
WA R N I N G
The module is partially energized when switched off, as long as the power cord is
plugged in.
Repair work at the module can lead to personal injuries, e.g. electrical shock, when
the cover is opened and the module is connected to power.
➔ Always unplug the power cable before opening the cover.
➔ Do not connect the power cable to the instrument while the covers are removed.
CAUTION
Inaccessible power plug.
In case of emergency it must be possible to disconnect the instrument from the power
line at any time.
➔ Make sure the power connector of the instrument can be easily reached and
unplugged.
➔ Provide sufficient space behind the power socket of the instrument to unplug the
cable.

Site Requirements and Specifications
Site Requirements
Power Cords
Different power cords are offered as options with the module. The female end
of all power cords is identical. It plugs into the power-input socket at the rear.
The male end of each power cord is different and designed to match the wall
socket of a particular country or region.
WA R N I N G
Absence of ground connection or use of unspecified power cord
The absence of ground connection or the use of unspecified power cord can lead to
electric shock or short circuit.
➔ Never operate your instrumentation from a power outlet that has no ground
connection.
➔ Never use a power cord other than the Agilent Technologies power cord designed
for your region.
WA R N I N G
Use of unsupplied cables
Using cables not supplied by Agilent Technologies can lead to damage of the
electronic components or personal injury.
➔ Never use cables other than the ones supplied by Agilent Technologies to ensure
proper functionality and compliance with safety or EMC regulations.
WA R N I N G
Unintended use of supplied power cords
Using power cords for unintended purposes can lead to personal injury or damage of
electronic equipment.
➔ Never use the power cords that Agilent Technologies supplies with this instrument
for any other equipment.

Site Requirements and Specifications
Site Requirements
Bench Space
The module dimensions and weight (see Table 3 on page 29) allow you to place
the module on almost any desk or laboratory bench. It needs an additional
2.5 cm (1.0 inches) of space on either side and approximately 8 cm
(3.1 inches) in the rear for air circulation and electric connections.
If the bench shall carry a complete HPLC system, make sure that the bench is
designed to bear the weight of all modules.
The module should be operated in a horizontal position.
Condensation
CAUTION
Condensation within the module
Condensation will damage the system electronics.
➔ Do not store, ship or use your module under conditions where temperature
fluctuations could cause condensation within the module.
➔ If your module was shipped in cold weather, leave it in its box and allow it to warm
slowly to room temperature to avoid condensation.

Installing the Valve Heads
The valve drives are factory-installed in the thermostatted column
compartment and in the 1290 infinity valve drive. The valve heads are
interchangeable and can be easily mounted.
At the first installation, the transportation lock (TCC only) and the dummy
valve have to be removed, see “Removing the Transportation Lock and the
Valve Dummy” on page 43. The valve heads can be installed by mounting the
valve heads onto the valve drives and fastening the nut manually (do not use
any tools).
Be sure that the guide pin snaps into the groove of the valve drive thread. The
valves are mounted on pull-out rails to allow easy installation of capillaries.
Push the valve gently into its housing until it snaps into the inner position,
push it again and it slides out. If all capillaries are installed, push the valve
back into its housing, see “Installing the Valve Head and Connecting
Capillaries” on page 44.

For bio-inert modules use bio-inert parts only!
CAUTION
The valve actuator contains sensitive optical parts, which need to be protected from
dust and other pollutions. Pollution of these parts can impair the accurate selection of
valve ports and therefore bias measurement results.
➔ Always install a valve head for operation and storage. For protecting the actuator, a
dummy valve head (part of Transportation Lock Kit (p/n G1316-67001)) can be used
instead of a functional valve. Do not touch parts inside the actuator.
CAUTION
Column Damage or Bias Measurement Results
Switching the valve to a wrong position can damage the column or bias measurement
results.
➔ Fit the lobe to the groove to make sure the valve is switched to the correct position.
CAUTION
Valve Damage
Using a low pressure valve on the high pressure side can damage the valve.
➔ When using multiple column compartments as part of a method development
solution, make sure that the high pressure valve head is connected to the
autosampler and the low pressure valve head is connected to the detector.
CAUTION
Sample degradation and contamination of the instrument
Metal parts in the flow path can interact with the bio-molecules in the sample leading
to sample degradation and contamination.
➔ For bio-inert applications, always use dedicated bio-inert parts, which can be
identified by the bio-inert symbol or other markers described in this manual.
➔ Do not mix bio-inert and non-inert modules or parts in a bio-inert system.

Hints for Successful Use
The presence of algae in HPLC systems can cause a variety of problems that
may be incorrectly diagnosed as instrument or application problems. Algae
grow in aqueous media, preferably in a pH range of 4-8. Their growth is
accelerated by buffers, for example phosphate or acetate. Since algae grow
through photosynthesis, light will also stimulate their growth. Even in distilled
water small-sized algae grow after some time.
Instrumental Problems Associated With Algae
Algae deposit and grow everywhere within the HPLC system causing:
• Blocked solvent filters or deposits on inlet or outlet valves resulting in
unstable flow, composition or gradient problems or a complete failure of
the pump.
• Small pore high pressure solvent filters, usually placed before the injector
to plug resulting in high system pressure.
• PTFE frits blockage leading to increased system pressure.
• Column filters to plug giving high system pressure.
• Flow cell windows of detectors to become dirty resulting in higher noise
levels (since the detector is the last module in the flow path, this problem is
less common).

Using the Module
Hints for Successful Use
Symptoms Observed with the Agilent 1260 Infinity HPLC
The presence of algae in the Agilent 1260 Infinity can cause the following to
occur:
• Increased system pressure caused by clogging of the inline filter. Algae
deposits are barely visible on the stainless steel filter frit. Replace the frit if
the backpressure of the pump in purge mode (water, 2.5 mL/min) exceeds
20 bar.
• Short lifetime of solvent filters (bottle head assembly). A blocked solvent
filter in the bottle, especially when only partly blocked, is more difficult to
identify and may show up as gradient performance problems, intermittent
pressure fluctuations etc.
• Algae growth may also be the possible source for failures of the ball valves
and other components in the flow path.

Solvent Information
Observe the following recommendations on the use of solvents.
• Follow recommendations for avoiding the growth of algae, see pump
manuals.
• Small particles can permanently block capillaries and valves. Therefore,
always filter solvents through 0.4 µm filters.
• Avoid or minimize the use of solvents that may corrode parts in the flow
path. Consider specifications for the pH range given for different materials
like flow cells, valve materials etc. and recommendations in subsequent
sections.

Solvent Information
Solvent compatibility for stainless steel in standard LC systems
Stainless steel is inert against many common solvents. It is stable in the
presence of acids and bases in the pH range specified for standard HPLC (pH 1
– 12.5 ). It can be corroded by acids below pH 2.3 . In general following
solvents may cause corrosion and should be avoided with stainless steel:
• Solutions of alkali halides, their respective acids (for example, lithium
iodide, potassium chloride, and so on) and aequous solutions of halogenes
• High concentrations of inorganic acids like nitric acid, sulfuric acid and
organic solvents especially at higher temperatures (replace, if your
chromatography method allows, by phosphoric acid or phosphate buffer
which are less corrosive against stainless steel).
• Halogenated solvents or mixtures which form radicals and/or acids, for
example:
2 CHCl3 + O2 → 2 COCl2 + 2 HCl
This reaction, in which stainless steel probably acts as a catalyst, occurs
quickly with dried chloroform if the drying process removes the stabilizing
alcohol.
• Chromatographic grade ethers, which can contain peroxides (for example,
THF, dioxane, di-isopropylether) such ethers should be filtered through dry
aluminium oxide which adsorbs the peroxides.
• Solutions of organic acids (acetic acid, formic acid, and so on) in organic
solvents. For example, a 1 % solution of acetic acid in methanol will attack
steel.
• Solutions containing strong complexing agents (for example, EDTA,
ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid).
• Mixtures of carbon tetrachloride with 2-propanol or THF.

Solvent Information
Solvent information for parts of the 1260 Infinity Bio-inert LC system
For the Agilent 1260 Infinity Bio-inert LC system, Agilent Technologies uses
highest quality materials (see “Bio-inert Materials” on page 21) in the flow
path (also referred to as wetted parts), which are widely accepted by life
scientists, as they are known for optimum inertness to biological samples, and
ensure best compatibility to common samples and solvents over a wide pH
range. Explicitly, the complete flow path is free from stainless steel and free
from other alloys containing metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, chromium,
molybdenum or copper, which can interfere with biological samples. The flow
downstream of the sample introduction contains no metals whatsoever.
However, there are no materials that combine suitability for versatile HPLC
instrumentation (valves, capillaries, springs, pump heads, flow cells etc.) with
complete compatibility with all possible chemicals and application conditions.
This section recommends the preferred solvents. Chemicals that are known to
cause issues should be avoided, or exposure should be minimized, for example,
for short-term cleaning procedures. After potentially aggressive chemicals
have been used, the system should be flushed with compatible standard HPLC
solvents.
PEEK
PEEK (Polyether-Ether Ketones) combines excellent properties with regard to
biocompatibility, chemical resistance, mechanical and thermal stability and is
therefore the material of choice for biochemical instrumentation. It is stable in
the specified pH range, and inert to many common solvents. There is still a
number of known incompatibilities with chemicals such as chloroform,
methylene chloride, THF, DMSO, strong acids (nitric acid > 10 %, sulphuric
acid > 10 %, sulfonic acids, trichloroacetic acid), halogenes or aequous
halogene solutions, phenol and derivatives (cresols, salicylic acid etc.).
When used above room temperature, PEEK is sensitive to bases and various
organic solvents, which can cause it to swell. As normal PEEK capillaries are
very sensitive to high pressure, especially under such conditions, Agilent uses
stainless-steel cladded PEEK capillaries to keep the flow path free of steel and
to ensure pressure stability to at least 600 bar. If in doubt, consult the
available literature about the chemical compatibility of PEEK.

Titanium
Titanium is highly resistant to oxidizing acids (for example, nitric, perchloric
and hypochlorous acid) over a wide range of concentrations and temperatures.
This is due to a thin oxide layer on the surface, which is stabilized by oxidizing
compounds. Reducing acids (for example, hydrochloric, sulfuric and
phosphoric acid) can cause slight corrosion, which increases with acid
concentration and temperature. For example, the corrosion rate with 3 % HCl
(about pH 0.1) at room temperature is about 13 µm/year. At room
temperature, titanium is resistant to concentrations of about 5 % sulfuric acid
(about pH 0.3). The addition of nitric acid to hydrochloric or sulfuric acids
significantly reduces corrosion rates. Titanium is subject to corrosion in
anhydrous methanol, which can be avoided by adding a small amount of water
(about 3 %). Slight corrosion is possible with ammonia > 10 %.
Fused silica
Fused silica is inert against all common solvents and acids except hydrofluoric
acid. It is corroded by strong bases and should not be used above pH 12 at
room temperature. The corrosion of flow cell windows can negatively affect
measurement results. For a pH greater than 12, the use of flow cells with
sapphire windows is recommended.
Gold
Gold is inert to all common HPLC solvents, acids and bases within the
specified pH range. It can be corroded by complexing cyanides and
concentrated acids like aqua regia (a mixture of concentrated hydrochloric
and nitric acid).
Zirconium Oxide
Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2) is inert to almost all common acids, bases and
solvents. There are no documented incompatibilities for HPLC applications.
Platinum/Iridium
Platinum/Iridium is inert to almost all common acids, bases and solvents.
There are no documented incompatibilities for HPLC applications.

PTFE
PTFE (polytetrafluorethen) is inert to almost all common acids, bases and
solvents. There are no documented incompatibilities for HPLC applications.
Sapphire, Ruby and Al2O3-based ceramics
Sapphire, ruby and ceramics based on Al2O3 are inert to almost all common
acids, bases and solvents. There are no documented incompatibilities for
HPLC applications.
Data above were collected from external resources and are meant as a
reference. Agilent cannot guarantee the completeness and correctness of such
information. Information can also not be generalized due to catalytic effects of
impurities like metal ions, complexing agents, oxygen etc. Most data available
refers to room temperature (typically 20 – 25 °C, 68 – 77 °F). If corrosion is
possible, it usually increases at higher temperatures. If in doubt, consult
additional resources.

The valve head’s RFID Tag holds the information about its max. pressure. An
assigned pressure cluster partner assures that this limit gets not exceeded.
The max. pressure information of the valve head will become the new
maximum pressure setting of the assigned pressure cluster partner. This helps
to avoid damage to the valve head if the max. pressure of the pump is higher
then the valve head’s maximum pressure.

Module Status Indicator
Module Status Indicator
The module status indicator indicates one of six possible module conditions:
• When the status indicator is OFF (and power switch light is on), the module
is in a prerun condition, and is ready to begin an analysis.
• A green status indicator, indicates the module is performing an analysis
(run mode).
• A yellow indicator indicates a not-ready condition. The module is in a
not-ready state when it is waiting for a specific condition to be reached or
completed (for example, immediately after changing a set point), or while a
self-test procedure is running.
• An error condition is indicated when the status indicator is red. An error
condition indicates the module has detected an internal problem which
affects correct operation of the module. Usually, an error condition requires
attention (e.g. leak, defective internal components). An error condition
always interrupts the analysis.
If the error occurs during analysis, it is propagated within the LC system,
i.e. a red LED may indicate a problem of a different module. Use the status
display of your user interface for finding the root cause/module of the
error.
• A blinking indicator indicates that the module is in resident mode (e.g.
during update of main firmware).
• A fast blinking indicator indicates that the module is in a low-level error
mode. In such a case try to re-boot the module or try a cold-start (see
“Config Switch Settings of the Infinity Valve Drive” on page 144). Then try a
firmware update (see “Replacing the Module Firmware” on page 90). If this
does not help, a main board replacement is required.

CAUTION
Valve Damage
Using a low pressure valve on the high pressure side can damage the valve.
➔ When using multiple column compartments as part of a method development
solution, make sure that the high pressure valve head is connected to the
autosampler and the low pressure valve head is connected to the detector.
NOTE
CAUTION
For details, please refer to the Agilent 1200 Infinity Series Method Development System System Manual (p/n G4230-90002).
Column Damage or Bias Measurement Results
Switching the valve to a wrong position can damage the column or bias measurement
results.
➔ Fit the lobe to the groove to make sure the valve is switched to the correct position.
CAUTION
The valve actuator contains sensitive optical parts, which need to be protected from
dust and other pollutions. Pollution of these parts can impair the accurate selection of
valve ports and therefore bias measurement results.
➔ Always install a valve head for operation and storage. For protecting the actuator, a
dummy valve head (part of Transportation Lock Kit (p/n G1316-67001)) can be used
instead of a functional valve. Do not touch parts inside the actuator.
NOTE
The tag reader reads the valve head properties from the valve head RFID tag during
initialization of the module. Valve properties will not be updated, if the valve head is
replaced while the module is on.
Selection of valve port positions can fail, if the instrument does not know the properties of
the installed valve.
NOTE
To have the valve correctly recognized by the Agilent Infinity Valve Drive you must have the
valve drive powered off for at least 10 seconds.

Electrical Connections
• The CAN bus is a serial bus with high speed data transfer. The two
connectors for the CAN bus are used for internal module data transfer and
synchronization.
• The power input socket accepts a line voltage of 100 – 240 VAC ±10 % with a
line frequency of 50 or 60 Hz. Maximum power consumption varies by
module. There is no voltage selector on your module because the power
supply has wide-ranging capability. There are no externally accessible
fuses, because automatic electronic fuses are implemented in the power
supply.
NOTE
Never use cables other than the ones supplied by Agilent Technologies to ensure proper
functionality and compliance with safety or EMC regulations.

Hardware Information
Interfaces
• CAN connectors as interface to other modules
• LAN connector as interface to the control software
• RS-232C as interface to a computer
• REMOTE connector as interface to other Agilent products
• Analog output connector(s) for signal output
Overview Interfaces
CAN
The CAN is inter-module communication interface. It is a 2-wire serial bus
system supporting high speed data communication and real-time requirement.
LAN
The modules have either an interface slot for an LAN card (e.g. Agilent
G1369B/C LAN Interface) or they have an on-board LAN interface (e.g.
detectors G1315C/D DAD and G1365C/D MWD). This interface allows the
control of the module/system via a PC with the appropriate control software.
NOTE
If an Agilent detector (DAD/MWD/FLD/VWD/RID) is in the system, the LAN should be
connected to the DAD/MWD/FLD/VWD/RID (due to higher data load). If no Agilent
detector is part of the system, the LAN interface should be installed in the pump or
autosampler.
RS-232C (Serial)
The RS-232C connector is used to control the module from a computer
through RS-232C connection, using the appropriate software. This connector
can be configured with the configuration switch module at the rear of the
module. Refer to Communication Settings for RS-232C.
Agilent 1290 Infinity Valve Drive and Valve Heads
139
10 Hardware Information
Interfaces
NOTE
There is no configuration possible on main boards with on-board LAN. These are
pre-configured for
• 19200 baud,
• 8 data bit with no parity and
• one start bit and one stop bit are always used (not selectable).
The RS-232C is designed as DCE (data communication equipment) with a
9-pin male SUB-D type connector. The pins are defined as:

APG Remote
The APG Remote connector may be used in combination with other analytical
instruments from Agilent Technologies if you want to use features as common
shut down, prepare, and so on.
Remote control allows easy connection between single instruments or systems
to ensure coordinated analysis with simple coupling requirements.
The subminiature D connector is used. The module provides one remote
connector which is inputs/outputs (wired- or technique).
To provide maximum safety within a distributed analysis system, one line is
dedicated to SHUT DOWN the system’s critical parts in case any module detects
a serious problem. To detect whether all participating modules are switched
on or properly powered, one line is defined to summarize the POWER ON state
of all connected modules. Control of analysis is maintained by signal readiness
READY for next analysis, followed by START of run and optional STOP of run
triggered on the respective lines. In addition PREPARE and START REQUEST may
be issued. The signal levels are defined as:
• standard TTL levels (0 V is logic true, + 5.0 V is false),
• fan-out is 10 V,
• input load is 2.2 kOhm against + 5.0 V, and
• output are open collector type, inputs/outputs (wired- or technique).
NOTE
142
All common TTL circuits operate with a 5 V power supply. A TTL signal is defined as "low"
or L when between 0 V and 0.8 V and "high" or H when between 2.0 V and 5.0 V (with
respect to the ground terminal).

Boot-Resident
Firmware update procedures may require this mode in case of firmware
loading errors (main firmware part). If you use the following switch settings
and power the instrument up again, the instrument firmware stays in the
resident mode. It is not operable as a module. It only uses basic functions of
the operating system for example, for communication. In this mode the main
firmware can be loaded (using update utilities).
Forced Cold Start
A forced cold start can be used to bring the module into a defined mode with
default parameter settings.
CAUTION
Loss of data
Forced cold start erases all methods and data stored in the non-volatile memory.
Exceptions are calibration settings, diagnosis and repair log books which will not be
erased.
➔ Save your methods and data before executing a forced cold start.

the instrument must be made inoperative and be secured against any intended
operation.
Make sure that only fuses with the required rated current and of the specified
type (normal blow, time delay, and so on) are used for replacement. The use of
repaired fuses and the short-circuiting of fuse holders must be avoided.
Some adjustments described in the manual, are made with power supplied to
the instrument, and protective covers removed. Energy available at many
points may, if contacted, result in personal injury.
Any adjustment, maintenance, and repair of the opened instrument under
voltage should be avoided whenever possible. When inevitable, this has to be
carried out by a skilled person who is aware of the hazard involved. Do not
attempt internal service or adjustment unless another person, capable of
rendering first aid and resuscitation, is present. Do not replace components
with power cable connected.
Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gases or fumes.
Operation of any electrical instrument in such an environment constitutes a
definite safety hazard.
Do not install substitute parts or make any unauthorized modification to the
instrument.
Capacitors inside the instrument may still be charged, even though the
instrument has been disconnected from its source of supply. Dangerous
voltages, capable of causing serious personal injury, are present in this
instrument. Use extreme caution when handling, testing and adjusting.
When working with solvents, observe appropriate safety procedures (for
example, goggles, safety gloves and protective clothing) as described in the
material handling and safety data sheet by the solvent vendor, especially when
