12 PRECAUTIONS
To ensure trouble-free operation, please observe the following precautions:
Optical communications are easily affected by external light sources, weak batteries, transfer
distance, transfer angle, etc. Any of these conditions may cause a data transfer failure,
incomplete, missing or incorrect data. Make sure that the wireless interface is away from direct
sunlight and other strong light source.
Do not terminate arbitrarily during file transfer process between DUT and computers
until finished. Otherwise DUT internal data integrity may be damaged, which is due
to the violation of DUT’s.
Do not expose the unit to moisture, as this will damage the internal circuitry.
Do not expose the unit to extreme temperatures. It should not be placed in direct sunlight or in a
closed vehicle, neither should it be placed near heaters nor other heat sources.
Do not store the unit in a humid or dusty place.
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the unit. Do not use a wet cloth or any solvent.
Do not drop the unit or handle the unit carelessly.
CAUTION:
Never touch the pins of computer connection terminal. The internal circuits can be damaged by a static
Electricity discharge. If this device requires any servicing, use only an ACTiSYS service dealer, an ACTiSYS
approved service facility, or an ACTiSYS repair service.
When exchanging data with host computer, be sure the appropriate serial communication port is available
and is not in conflict with other peripheral device or software.
