hazards and this list should not be a substitute for your judgment and
experience.
Before you install and use this equipment, please read and observe all safety
information and instructions in this manual.
If you are unsure about any part of this installation or of the potential hazards
discussed, please contact your supervisor immediately.
Before you proceed with the installation, please read the Intended Use
Statement and all safety messages.

EMC, USA, and Canada Compliance
FCC Radio Frequency Rules and Regulations
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This
equipment generates, uses, and can emit radiated radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own
expense.

Site Planning
Each library site has unique workflow and space requirements that you
should consider when selecting a location for the Mediacheck.
CAUTION
This equipment may damage audiocassettes. Do not process
audiocassettes inside the Mediacheck.
Workflow considerations
Where will the Mediacheck be located?
(circulation counter, back room, other)
How are the items received for processing?
Where are the items placed after processing?
Space considerations
Is there enough space to process and store items (room for carts, stacks
of items, etc.)?
Is there enough room so that other library equipment will not interfere
with the operation of the Mediacheck?
When CRT monitors and the Mediacheck are close, the monitor screen may experience
image interference, such as color distortion or flickering. This tends to decrease as
separation increases. The distance required to eliminate interference varies amoung
monitors. The following guidelines work in most cases, however:
To minimize image color distortion, place CRT monitors at least 18 inches (457 mm)
from the unit.
To minimize image flickering, place CRT monitors at least 24 inches (610 mm) from
the unit.
It may be necessary to increase distances if interference persists. If monitors cannot be
positioned far enough away to eliminate interference, try using LCD monitors, which are
not affected by the Mediacheck.
Staff preferences and ergonomic considerations
Does the location minimize the effects of repetitive motion?
Does the location allow both tall and short staff members to work
efficiently?

Processing Items
This section consists of two procedures. The first describes how to use the Mediacheck when it is
part of a SelfCheck™ System V-Series system. The second describes how to use it when it’s
operating in standalone mode.
Do not place audiocassettes inside the Mediacheck.
When the Mediacheck is part of a SelfCheck System V-Series
1
Follow the prompts on the V-Series touch screen to begin the check-in or checkout process.
Mediacheck switches are disabled when the unit is part of a SelfCheck System V-Series.
2
When the touch screen prompts you to place the item in the Mediacheck,
and the Mediacheck status lights flash green, insert the item in the unit.
The Mediacheck lights stop flashing and turn solid when the unit senses the library item.
When the check-in or checkout operation is complete, the Mediacheck and
the SelfCheck System will each produce a sound, indicating that the operation is complete.
3
Remove the item from the Mediacheck.
Standalone Mode
When you select an operating mode, the Mediacheck remains in that mode
until you change it.
