incomplete, missing or incorrect data. Make sure that the wireless interface is away from direct
sunlight and other strong light source.
z 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.
z Do not expose the unit to moisture, as this will damage the internal circuitry.
z 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.
z Do not store the unit in a humid or dusty place.
z Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the unit. Do not use a wet cloth or any solvent.
