Important Information
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not
installed and used properly, that is, in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions, may cause interference in radio and television reception. It
has been type tested and found to comply with the limits for class B
computing devices in accordance with the specification in subpart J of part
15 of FCC rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection
against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a partial installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
Reorient the receiving antenna,
Relocate the peripheral away from the receiver,
Move the peripheral away from the receiver
Plug the peripheral into a different outlet, so that the peripheral and
receiver are on different branch circuits
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions. The user may find
the following booklet, prepared by the Federal Communications Commission, helpful: “How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference
Problems”.
This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington DC 20402 Stock No. 004.000.00345.4.
WARNING: To comply with FCC regulations on electromagnetic interference for a class B computing device, the printer cable must be shielded.
To assure compliance with FCC regulations for a computing device, use
a shielded interface cable with a metal shell connector. The use of cables
not properly shielded may result in violating FCC regulations.
This digital apparatus does not exceed the class B limits for radio noise
emissions from digital apparatus as set out in the radio interference
regulations of the Canadian department of communications.
This unit complies with DOC standard C108.8-M 1983
ATTENTION: Le présent appareil numérique n’ement pas de bruits
radioélectriques déspassant les limites applicables aux appareils
numériques de la classe B prescrites dans le règlement sur le brouillage
radio- électrique édicté par le minstère des communications du Canada.
