m FCC Class A
FCC Compliance
This equipment has been tested and complies with the limits for a
Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These
limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. If not installed and used in
accordance with proper instructions, this equipment might generate or
radiate radio frequency energy and cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause harmful 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 measurers:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
2. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Shielded interface cables must be used in order to comply with
emission limits.ou
Safety Precautions
Before getting started, read the following important cautions.
1.
The PC 8150 does not come equipped with an
operating system. An operating system must be loaded first
before installing any software into the computer.
2. Be sure to ground yourself to prevent static charge when
installing the internal components. Use a grounding wrist strap
and place all electronic components in any static-shielded
devices. Most electronic components are sensitive to static
electrical charge.
3.
Disconnect the power cord from the PC 8150 before making
any installation. Be sure both the system and the external
devices are turned OFF. Sudden surge of power could
ruin sensitive components. Make sure the
PC 8150 is properly grounded.
4. The brightness of the flat panel display decreases with usage.
However, hours of use vary depending on the application
environment.
5. Turn OFF the system power before cleaning. Clean the
system using a cloth only. Do not spray any liquid cleaner
directly onto the screen. The PC 8150 may come with or w/o
a touch screen. Although the touch screen is chemical
resistant, it is recommended that you spray the liquid cleaner
on a cloth first before wiping the screen. In case your system
comes without the touch screen, you must follow the same
procedure and not spray any cleaner on the flat panel directly.
6. Avoid using sharp objects to operate the touch screen.
Scratches on the touch screen may cause malfunction or
internal failure to the touch screen.
7. The flat panel display is not susceptible to shock or vibration.
When assembling the PC 8150, make sure it is securely
installed.
1
5. Do not open the system’s back cover. If opening the cover for
maintenance is a must, only a trained technician is allowed to do
so. Integrated circuits on computer boards are sensitive to static
electricity. To avoid damaging chips from electrostatic discharge,
observe the following precautions:
Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an
unpainted portion of the system unit chassis for a few seconds.
This will help to discharge any static electricity on your body.
When handling boards and components,

supply shall return to normal operation after the short circuit has been
removed and the power switch has been turned off for no more than 2
seconds.
In the event of an output short circuit condition –12V output, the power
supply will not be latch off.
The power supply shall return to normal operation as soon as the
short circuit has been removed and the power switch has been turned

Overload currents defined as a 10 amp/sec fault current ramp starting
from full load, applied to the +3.3V, +5V output, shall not cause that
output to exceed 32 amps before the output voltage drops below 0.5
volts and is latched off. The +12V output shall not exceed 20 amps
under the same ramp conditions starting at full load before it is latched
off.
