EMPALMADOR DE

CONEXIÓN A TIERRA

La sección 810 del Código

SISTEMA DE ELECTRODOS DE

CONEXIÓN A TIERRA DEL SERVICIO

ELÉCTRICO (ART, 250 DEL NEC, PARTE H)

Eléctrico Nacional, ANSI/NFPA 70 (en

Canadá, la parte 1 del Código Eléctrico Canadiense) proporciona información con respecto a la conexión a tierra correcta del mástil y la estructura de soporte, conexión a tierra de los cables de bajada de antena a una unidad de descarga, tamaño de los conductores a tierra, ubicación de la unidad de descarga de antena, conexión de los electrodos a tierra y requisitos del electrodo de toma a tierra.

2 MANTENGA LA ANTENA LIBRE DE LÍNEAS O CIRCUITOS

DE ALTO VOLTAJE

Un sistema de antena exterior deberá ser colocado bien alejado de líneas de alimentación, luz eléctrica o circuitos de alimentación para que nunca esté en contacto con tales fuentes de alimentación si se cayera. Al instalar una antena exterior, debe tenerse muchísimo cuidado para evitar las líneas de alimentación, circuitos u otras fuentes de alimentación ya que esto podría resultar mortal. Debido a los riesgos implicados en la instalación de una antena, tal operación debe dejarse a un profesional.

3 CABLE DE ALIMENTACIÓN

Asegúrese de que los cables de alimentación son dispuestos de tal forma que no se apoye nada sobre ellos, no ruede nada sobre ellos, o que estén en el paso de tráfico al caminar.

Si se utilizara un cable alargador, asegúrese de que también disponga de un enchufe polarizado o con toma a tierra y de que puede conectarse firmemente.

Los cables pelados, los enchufes averiados o hilos quebrados constituyen un peligro y deben ser reemplazados por un técnico cualificado del servicio técnico. Las tomas eléctricas de la red general sobrecargadas y los cables de extensión constituyen riesgos de incendio y han de evitarse en lo posible.

4 NO BLOQUEE LOS ORIFICIOS DE VENTILACIÓN

Las aberturas de ventilación del mueble liberan el calor generado durante el funcionamiento de la unidad.

Si se bloquearan, el calor acumulado dentro de la unidad podría ocasionar fallos que pueden llevar a riesgos de incendio o daños por calor en las cassettes utilizadas.

5 EVITE UBICACIONES MUY CALIENTES O SOMETIDA A

CAMBIOS BRUSCOS DE TEMPERATURA

No coloque la unidad encima o cerca de cual quier tipo de calefactor o regulador, bajo la luz solar directa, dentro de vehículos, etc…

No traslade la unidad súbitamente entre sitios con variaciones extremas de temparatura. Si la unidad es llevada bruscamente de un sitio frío a otro cálido, la humedad puede condensarse en la unidad y en la cinta.

UTILIZACIÓN DE LA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO

Si la unidad ha estado almacenada o es trasladada a una nueva ubicación, remítase primero a la sección de INSTALACIÓN de estas medidas de seguridad.

1 MANTENGA ESTA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO ALEJADA DEL AGUA O

2 SI EL EQUIPO ES EXPUESTO A LA LLUVIA, HUMEDAD, O

FUERTES IMPACTOS, desenchufe la unidad y que sea revisada por un técnico cualificado antes de volver a utilizarla.

3 DURANTE UNA TORMENTA ELÉCTRICA

Durante una tormenta con rayos, tanto en interiores como en el exterior, o antes de dejar la unidad sin utilizar durante largos períodos de tiempo, desconecte todos los equipos de la fuente de alimentación así como la antena y el sistema de cableado.

4 AL ENCHUFAR LA UNIDAD

• No exponga nunca la unidad a la lluvia o el agua. NO LA HAGA

FUNCIONAR si se ha derramado líquido dentro de la unidad.

• No deje caer ni introduzca ningún objeto por las aberturas de la unidad. Algunas piezas internas tienen un voltaje peligroso y el contacto con ellas puede producir sacudidas eléctricas o incendios.

• Evite colocar la unidad directamente encima o debajo del televisor, ya que esto prodría causar interferencias eléctricas. Mantenga cualquier tipo de imán alejados de equipos electrónicos.

5 UTILIZACIÓN DE ACCESORIOS

Utilice sólo accesorios recomendados por el fabricante para así evitar riesgos de incendio, sacudidas eléctricas y otros peligros.

6 LIMPIEZA DE LA UNIDAD

Desenchufe la unidad. Luego utilice un paño limpio y seco, sin tratamiento químico para quitar suavemente el polvo o suciedad.

NO UTILICE productos de limpieza, aerosoles, o aire comprimido que pudieran causar un exceso de pulverización o introducirse en la unidad y ocasionar sacudidas eléctricas. Caulquier substancia, como cera, cinta adhesiva, etc., podría arruinar el acabado de la superficie. La exposición a substancias grasosas, áreas húmedas o polvorientas puede afectar de manera adversa a las piezas intemas.

6 PARA EVITAR LESIONES PERSONALES

• No coloque equipos no fijados en superficies inclinadas.

If an extension cord is used, make sure it also has either a polarized or grounded plug and that the cords can be securely connected. Frayed cords, damaged plugs, and damaged or cracked wire insulation are hazardous and should be replaced by a qualified service technician.

Overloaded outlets and extension cords are fire hazards and should be avoided.

4 DO NOT BLOCK VENTILATION HOLES

Ventilation openings in the cabinet release heat generated during operation. If they are blocked, heat build-up inside the unit can cause failures that may result in a fire hazard or heat damage to cassettes.

For protection, follow these rules: a. Never cover ventilation slots or the unit while in use, or operate the unit when placed on a bed, sofa, rug, or other soft surface.

b. Avoid built-in installation, such as a book case or rack, unless proper ventilation is provided.

5 AVOID EXTREMELY HOT LOCATIONS OR SUDDEN

TEMPERATURE CHANGES

Do not place the unit over or near any kind of heater or radiator, in direct sunlight, inside a closed vehicle, etc..

Do not move the unit suddenly between areas of extreme temperature variation. If the unit is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm place, moisture may condense in the unit and on the tape.

6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY

• Do not place unsecured equipment on a sloping surface.

• Do not place this unit on any support that is not firm, level, and adequately strong. The unit could fall causing serious injury to a child or adult and damage to the unit.

• An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.

• Carefully follow all operating instructions and use the manufacturer's recommended accessories when operating this unit or connecting it to any other equipment.

Important Safeguards and Precautions

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, FIRE, INJURY TO PERSONS OR DAMAGE TO

THIS PRODUCT, READ AND RETAIN ALL SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. HEED ALL

WARNINGS IN THE MANUAL AND ON THE PRODUCT.

INSTALLATION

1 POWER SOURCE CAUTION

Operate only from a power source indicated on the unit or in this manual. If necessary, have your Electric Utility

Service Company or Video Products Dealer verify the power source in your home.

2 POLARIZED OR GROUNDING PLUG

As a safety feature, this Video product comes with either a polarized power cord plug (one blade is wider than the other), or a three-wire grounding type plug.

POLARIZED PLUG CAUTION:

This plug will only fit into an outlet one way. If you cannot fully insert the plug, try reversing it. If it still will not fit, have an electrician install the proper wall outlet. Do not defeat the safety feature by tampering with the plug.

GROUNDING PLUG CAUTION:

This plug will only fit into a three-hole grounding outlet.

If necessary, have an electrician install the proper outlet.

Do not defeat the safety feature by tampering with the plug.

3 POWER CORD

Make sure power cords are routed so that they are not likely to have anything rest on them, roll over them, or be in the way of walking traffic. If an extension cord is used, make sure it also has either a polarized or grounded plug and that the cords can be securely connected. Frayed cords, damaged plugs, and damaged or cracked wire insulation are hazardous and should be replaced by a qualified service technician.

Overloaded outlets and extension cords are fire hazards and should be avoided.

4 DO NOT BLOCK VENTILATION HOLES

Ventilation openings in the cabinet release heat generated during operation. If they are blocked, heat build-up inside the unit can cause failures that may result in a fire hazard or heat damage to cassettes.

For protection, follow these rules: a. Never cover ventilation slots or the unit while in use, or operate the unit when placed on a bed, sofa, rug, or other soft surface.

b. Avoid built-in installation, such as a book case or rack, unless proper ventilation is provided.

5 AVOID EXTREMELY HOT LOCATIONS OR SUDDEN

TEMPERATURE CHANGES

Do not place the unit over or near any kind of heater or radiator, in direct sunlight, inside a closed vehicle, etc..

Do not move the unit suddenly between areas of extreme temperature variation. If the unit is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm place, moisture may condense in the unit and on the tape.

6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY

• Do not place unsecured equipment on a sloping surface.

• Do not place this unit on any support that is not firm, level, and adequately strong. The unit could fall causing serious injury to a child or adult and damage to the unit.

• An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.

• Carefully follow all operating instructions and use the manufacturer's recommended accessories when operating this unit or connecting it to any other equipment.

OUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION

1 SAFE ANTENNA AND CABLE CONNECTION

If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the equipment, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against built up static charges and voltage surges.

2 KEEP ANTENNA CLEAR OF HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS

An outside antenna system should be located well away from power lines, electric light or power circuits and where it will never come into contact with these power sources if it should happen to fall. When installing an outside antenna, extreme care should be taken to avoid touching power lines, circuits or other power sources as this could be fatal. Because of the hazards involved, antenna installation should be left to a professional.

USING THE VIDEO UNIT

If the unit has been in storage or moved to a new location, refer first to the INSTALLATION section of these safeguards.

1 KEEP THIS VIDEO UNIT AWAY FROM WATER OR

STRONG IMPACT, unplug the unit and have it inspected by a qualified service technician before use.

3 DURING AN ELECTRICAL STORM

During a lightning storm, whether indoors or outdoors, or before leaving the unit unused for extended periods of time, disconnect all equipment from the power source as well as the antenna and cable system.

4 WHEN THE UNIT IS PLUGGED IN

• Never expose the unit to rain or water. DO NOT OPERATE if liquid has been spilled into the unit. Immediately unplug the unit, and have it inspected by a service technician.

Fire and shock hazards can result from electrical shorts caused by liquid contact inside.

• Never drop or push any object through openings in the unit. Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages and contact can cause electric shock or fire hazard.

• Avoid placing the unit directly above or below your TV set as this may cause electrical interference.

Keep all magnets away from electronic equipment.

5 USING ACCESSORIES

Medidas de seguridad y precauciones importantes

PARA REDUCIR EL RIESGO DE GOLPES ELÉCTRICOS, INCENDIOS, HERIDAS O DAÑOS A ESTE

PRODUCTO, LEA Y GUARDE TODAS LAS INSTRUCCIONES DE SEGURIDAD Y FUNCIONAMIENTO.

TENGA EN CUENTA TODAS LAS ADVERTENCIAS INDICADAS EN EL MANUAL Y EN EL PRODUCTO.

INSTALACIÓN

1 PRECAUCIÓN CON LA FUENTE DE ALIMENTACIÓN

El equipo solo debe hacerse funcionar desde una fuente de a limentación que se indique en la unidad o en este manual. Si fuera necesario, haga revisar la fuente de alimentación de su hogar por parte de la Compañia de

Suministro Eléctrico o por parte de su Distribuidor de

Productos de Vídeo.

2 CONECTOR POLARIZADO O CON TOMA A TIERRA

Como característica de seguridad, este producto de vídeo viene equipado con un enchufe de cable de alimentación polarizado (solo una pata es más ancha que la otra), o con un enchufe del tipo con toma a tierra de tres patas.

PRECAUCIÓN CON EL ENCHUFE POLARIZADO

Este enchufe sólo entrará en la toma en un sentido.

Si no pudiera introducir el enchufe a fondo, intente darle la vuelta. Si aún así no entrara, llame a un técnico electricista para que le instale una toma de red adecuada. No desactive esta función de seguridad manipulando el enchufe de ninguna manera.

PRECAUCIÓN CON ENCHUFES CON TOMA A TIERRA

Este enchufe sólo entrará en una toma con conexión a tierra de tres orificios.

Si fuera necesario, que un técnico electricista le instale la toma de red adecuada. No desactive esta función de seguridad manipulando el enchufe de ninguna manera.

INSTALACIÓN DE LA ANTENA EXTERIOR

1 CONEXIÓN SEGURA DE LA ANTENA Y DE LOS CABLES

Si se conectara una antena exterior o sistema de cable conectado al equido, el usuario

CÓDIGOO ELÉCTRICO

CONEXIÓN A TIERRA

La sección 810 del Código

SISTEMA DE ELECTRODOS DE

CONEXIÓN A TIERRA DEL SERVICIO

ELÉCTRICO (ART, 250 DEL NEC, PARTE H)

Eléctrico Nacional, ANSI/NFPA 70 (en

Canadá, la parte 1 del Código Eléctrico Canadiense) proporciona información con respecto a la conexión a tierra correcta del mástil y la estructura de soporte, conexión a tierra de los cables de bajada de antena a una unidad de descarga, tamaño de los conductores a tierra, ubicación de la unidad de descarga de antena, conexión de los electrodos a tierra y requisitos del electrodo de toma a tierra.

2 MANTENGA LA ANTENA LIBRE DE LÍNEAS O CIRCUITOS

DE ALTO VOLTAJE

Un sistema de antena exterior deberá ser colocado bien alejado de líneas de alimentación, luz eléctrica o circuitos de alimentación para que nunca esté en contacto con tales fuentes de alimentación si se cayera. Al instalar una antena exterior, debe tenerse muchísimo cuidado para evitar las líneas de alimentación, circuitos u otras fuentes de alimentación ya que esto podría resultar mortal. Debido a los riesgos implicados en la instalación de una antena, tal operación debe dejarse a un profesional.

3 CABLE DE ALIMENTACIÓN

Asegúrese de que los cables de alimentación son dispuestos de tal forma que no se apoye nada sobre ellos, no ruede nada sobre ellos, o que estén en el paso de tráfico al caminar.

Si se utilizara un cable alargador, asegúrese de que también disponga de un enchufe polarizado o con toma a tierra y de que puede conectarse firmemente.

Los cables pelados, los enchufes averiados o hilos quebrados constituyen un peligro y deben ser reemplazados por un técnico cualificado del servicio técnico. Las tomas eléctricas de la red general sobrecargadas y los cables de extensión constituyen riesgos de incendio y han de evitarse en lo posible.

4 NO BLOQUEE LOS ORIFICIOS DE VENTILACIÓN

Las aberturas de ventilación del mueble liberan el calor generado durante el funcionamiento de la unidad.

Si se bloquearan, el calor acumulado dentro de la unidad podría ocasionar fallos que pueden llevar a riesgos de incendio o daños por calor en las cassettes utilizadas.

5 EVITE UBICACIONES MUY CALIENTES O SOMETIDA A

CAMBIOS BRUSCOS DE TEMPERATURA

No coloque la unidad encima o cerca de cual quier tipo de calefactor o regulador, bajo la luz solar directa, dentro de vehículos, etc…

No traslade la unidad súbitamente entre sitios con variaciones extremas de temparatura. Si la unidad es llevada bruscamente de un sitio frío a otro cálido, la humedad puede condensarse en la unidad y en la cinta.

UTILIZACIÓN DE LA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO

Si la unidad ha estado almacenada o es trasladada a una nueva ubicación, remítase primero a la sección de INSTALACIÓN de estas medidas de seguridad.

1 MANTENGA ESTA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO ALEJADA DEL AGUA O

DE HUMEDAD DE CUALQUIER TIPO

2 SI EL EQUIPO ES EXPUESTO A LA LLUVIA, HUMEDAD, O

FUERTES IMPACTOS, desenchufe la unidad y que sea revisada por un técnico cualificado antes de volver a utilizarla.

3 DURANTE UNA TORMENTA ELÉCTRICA

Durante una tormenta con rayos, tanto en interiores como en el exterior, o antes de dejar la unidad sin utilizar durante largos períodos de tiempo, desconecte todos los equipos de la fuente de alimentación así como la antena y el sistema de cableado.

4 AL ENCHUFAR LA UNIDAD

• No exponga nunca la unidad a la lluvia o el agua. NO LA HAGA

FUNCIONAR si se ha derramado líquido dentro de la unidad.

Medidas de seguridad y precauciones importantes

PARA REDUCIR EL RIESGO DE GOLPES ELÉCTRICOS, INCENDIOS, HERIDAS O DAÑOS A ESTE

PRODUCTO, LEA Y GUARDE TODAS LAS INSTRUCCIONES DE SEGURIDAD Y FUNCIONAMIENTO.

TENGA EN CUENTA TODAS LAS ADVERTENCIAS INDICADAS EN EL MANUAL Y EN EL PRODUCTO.

INSTALACIÓN

1 PRECAUCIÓN CON LA FUENTE DE ALIMENTACIÓN

El equipo solo debe hacerse funcionar desde una fuente de a limentación que se indique en la unidad o en este manual. Si fuera necesario, haga revisar la fuente de alimentación de su hogar por parte de la Compañia de

Suministro Eléctrico o por parte de su Distribuidor de

Productos de Vídeo.

2 CONECTOR POLARIZADO O CON TOMA A TIERRA

Como característica de seguridad, este producto de vídeo viene equipado con un enchufe de cable de alimentación polarizado (solo una pata es más ancha que la otra), o con un enchufe del tipo con toma a tierra de tres patas.

PRECAUCIÓN CON EL ENCHUFE POLARIZADO

Este enchufe sólo entrará en la toma en un sentido.

Si no pudiera introducir el enchufe a fondo, intente darle la vuelta. Si aún así no entrara, llame a un técnico electricista para que le instale una toma de red adecuada. No desactive esta función de seguridad manipulando el enchufe de ninguna manera.

PRECAUCIÓN CON ENCHUFES CON TOMA A TIERRA

Este enchufe sólo entrará en una toma con conexión a tierra de tres orificios.

Si fuera necesario, que un técnico electricista le instale la toma de red adecuada. No desactive esta función de seguridad manipulando el enchufe de ninguna manera.

INSTALACIÓN DE LA ANTENA EXTERIOR

1 CONEXIÓN SEGURA DE LA ANTENA Y DE LOS CABLES

Si se conectara una antena exterior o sistema de cable conectado al equido, el usuario

La sección 810 del Código

SISTEMA DE ELECTRODOS DE

CONEXIÓN A TIERRA DEL SERVICIO

ELÉCTRICO (ART, 250 DEL NEC, PARTE H)

Eléctrico Nacional, ANSI/NFPA 70 (en

Canadá, la parte 1 del Código Eléctrico Canadiense) proporciona información con respecto a la conexión a tierra correcta del mástil y la estructura de soporte, conexión a tierra de los cables de bajada de antena a una unidad de descarga, tamaño de los conductores a tierra, ubicación de la unidad de descarga de antena, conexión de los electrodos a tierra y requisitos del electrodo de toma a tierra.

2 MANTENGA LA ANTENA LIBRE DE LÍNEAS O CIRCUITOS

DE ALTO VOLTAJE

Un sistema de antena exterior deberá ser colocado bien alejado de líneas de alimentación, luz eléctrica o circuitos de alimentación para que nunca esté en contacto con tales fuentes de alimentación si se cayera. Al instalar una antena exterior, debe tenerse muchísimo cuidado para evitar las líneas de alimentación, circuitos u otras fuentes de alimentación ya que esto podría resultar mortal. Debido a los riesgos implicados en la instalación de una antena, tal operación debe dejarse a un profesional.

3 CABLE DE ALIMENTACIÓN

Asegúrese de que los cables de alimentación son dispuestos de tal forma que no se apoye nada sobre ellos, no ruede nada sobre ellos, o que estén en el paso de tráfico al caminar.

Si se utilizara un cable alargador, asegúrese de que también disponga de un enchufe polarizado o con toma a tierra y de que puede conectarse firmemente.

Los cables pelados, los enchufes averiados o hilos quebrados constituyen un peligro y deben ser reemplazados por un técnico cualificado del servicio técnico. Las tomas eléctricas de la red general sobrecargadas y los cables de extensión constituyen riesgos de incendio y han de evitarse en lo posible.

4 NO BLOQUEE LOS ORIFICIOS DE VENTILACIÓN

Las aberturas de ventilación del mueble liberan el calor generado durante el funcionamiento de la unidad.

Si se bloquearan, el calor acumulado dentro de la unidad podría ocasionar fallos que pueden llevar a riesgos de incendio o daños por calor en las cassettes utilizadas.

5 EVITE UBICACIONES MUY CALIENTES O SOMETIDA A

CAMBIOS BRUSCOS DE TEMPERATURA

No coloque la unidad encima o cerca de cual quier tipo de calefactor o regulador, bajo la luz solar directa, dentro de vehículos, etc…

No traslade la unidad súbitamente entre sitios con variaciones extremas de temparatura. Si la unidad es llevada bruscamente de un sitio frío a otro cálido, la humedad puede condensarse en la unidad y en la cinta.

UTILIZACIÓN DE LA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO

Si la unidad ha estado almacenada o es trasladada a una nueva ubicación, remítase primero a la sección de INSTALACIÓN de estas medidas de seguridad.

1 MANTENGA ESTA UNIDAD DE VÍDEO ALEJADA DEL AGUA O

DE HUMEDAD DE CUALQUIER TIPO

2 SI EL EQUIPO ES EXPUESTO A LA LLUVIA, HUMEDAD, O

FUERTES IMPACTOS, desenchufe la unidad y que sea revisada por un técnico cualificado antes de volver a utilizarla.

3 DURANTE UNA TORMENTA ELÉCTRICA

Durante una tormenta con rayos, tanto en interiores como en el exterior, o antes de dejar la unidad sin utilizar durante largos períodos de tiempo, desconecte todos los equipos de la fuente de alimentación así como la antena y el sistema de cableado.

4 AL ENCHUFAR LA UNIDAD

• No exponga nunca la unidad a la lluvia o el agua. NO LA HAGA

FUNCIONAR si se ha derramado líquido dentro de la unidad.

Desenchufe la unida inmediatamente ya que sea revisada por un técnico. Pueden producirse incendios o sacudidas eléctricas derivadas de cortocircuitos eléctricos causados por el contacto de líquidos con el interior de la unidad.

• No deje caer ni introduzca ningún objeto por las aberturas de la unidad. Algunas piezas internas tienen un voltaje peligroso y el contacto con ellas puede producir sacudidas eléctricas o incendios.

• Evite colocar la unidad directamente encima o debajo del televisor, ya que esto prodría causar interferencias eléctricas. Mantenga cualquier tipo de imán alejados de equipos electrónicos.

5 UTILIZACIÓN DE ACCESORIOS

Utilice sólo accesorios recomendados por el fabricante para así evitar riesgos de incendio, sacudidas eléctricas y otros peligros.

6 LIMPIEZA DE LA UNIDAD

Desenchufe la unidad. Luego utilice un paño limpio y seco, sin tratamiento químico para quitar suavemente el polvo o suciedad.

NO UTILICE productos de limpieza, aerosoles, o aire comprimido que pudieran causar un exceso de pulverización o introducirse en la unidad y ocasionar sacudidas eléctricas. Caulquier substancia, como cera, cinta adhesiva, etc., podría arruinar el acabado de la superficie. La exposición a substancias grasosas, áreas húmedas o polvorientas puede afectar de manera adversa a las piezas intemas.

6 PARA EVITAR LESIONES PERSONALES
