If the device is brought into the installation site from a cold environment, condensation can
form. Before operating the device, wait until it is absolutely dry and has reached approximately
the same temperature as the installation site.
During installation and before operating the device, observe the instructions on environmental
conditions in the chapter entitled "Technical data" as well as the instructions in the chapter
"Installing an ergonomic video workstation".
To ensure adequate ventilation the monitor may only be operated with the monitor foot
installed.
The color monitor must not be exposed to strong magnetic fields (e. g. caused by magnetic
paper clip holders or loudspeakers). Strong magnetic fields could result in a permanent blotchy
image.
The monitor is automatically degaussed when switched on. This results in a magnetic field
around the metal edge of the picture tube, which may damage the data on data carriers nearby.
Therefore, never keep magnetic data carriers near the monitor.
The device automatically sets itself to the correct voltage within the range from 100 V to 240 V.
Ensure that the local mains voltage lies within these limits.
The device must be installed in such a way that the user has good access to the appliance
socket.
The ON/OFF switch does not disconnect the device from the line voltage. To disconnect the
line voltage completely, remove the power plug from the grounded power outlet.
Lay all cables so that nobody can stand on them or trip over them. When attaching the device,
observe the relevant notes in the chapter "Connecting the monitor".
If you use a different data cable from the one supplied, ensure that it is adequately shielded.
CE conformance and optimum picture quality are guaranteed only if you use the data cable
supplied.
No data transmission cable should be connected or disconnected during a thunderstorm.
Please ensure that no objects (e. g. necklaces, paperclips etc.) or liquids can get into the
interior of the device (electrical shock, short circuit).
In emergencies (e. g. damaged casing, elements or cables, penetration of liquids or foreign
matter), switch off the unit, disconnect the power plug and contact your sales office or our
customer service.
Only qualified technicians may repair the device. Unauthorized opening or incorrect repair may
greatly endanger the user (electric shock, fire risk).

If your PC detects inactivity (no input) it sends an appropriate signal to the monitor to reduce the
power consumption. The power indicator of the monitor changes color to indicate the status change.
If there is still no input, power consumption is further reduced (OFF mode).
Once an input is made at the PC the screen contents are redrawn and full power is restored.
The length of the individual stages is determined by the power management system of the PC. For
detailed information on how energy-saving mode operates refer to the Operating Manual or
Technical Manual of your PC.
i
The service life of your monitor will be extended if the OFF mode is switched to after
30 minutes at the earliest (setting in screen saver or in your PC's BIOS setup).
When the monitor is switched to OFF mode by the power management system a power
consumption of up to 5 W is maintained to feed the circuit for redrawing the screen
contents.

Notes on ergonomic color adjustment
If you select colors for the display in your application programs, take note of the information below.
The primary colors blue and red on a dark background do not produce the minimum required
contrast of 3:1 and are therefore not suitable for continuous text and data entry.
When using several colors for characters and background and giving the primary colors full
modulation, you can obtain very suitable color combinations (see the following table):
Background
Characters
black
white
purple
blue
cyan
green
yellow

Color combination very suitable; light background colors are only suitable for devices which are
operated with a refresh rate of at least 75 Hz.
Color combination not suitable because color locations are too close together, thin characters
are not identifiable or rigorous focusing is demanded of the human eye.

VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface
Your monitor is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible VGA interface. VESA-DDC (Video
Electronics Standard Association, Display Data Channel) is used as the communications interface
between the monitor and the PC. If your PC is equipped with a VESA-DDC-compatible VGA
interface, it can automatically read the data for ensuring optimum operation from your monitor and
select the appropriate settings.
