Safety Precautions and Maintenance
FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE, PLEASE NOTE THE
FOLLOWING WHEN SETTING UP AND USING
THE MULTISYNC® LCD COLOR MONITOR:
• DO NOT OPEN THE MONITOR. There are no user serviceable parts inside and opening or
removing covers may expose you to dangerous shock hazards or other risks. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
• Do not spill any liquids into the cabinet or use your monitor near water.
• Do not insert objects of any kind into the cabinet slots, as they may touch dangerous voltage
points, which can be harmful or fatal or may cause electric shock, fire or equipment failure.
• Do not place any heavy objects on the power cord. Damage to the cord may cause shock or fire.
• Do not place this product on a sloping or unstable cart, stand or table, as the monitor may fall,
causing serious damage to the monitor.
• When operating the MultiSync LCD monitor with its AC 125-240V power supply, use a power
supply cord that matches the power supply voltage of the AC power outlet being used. The power
supply cord you use must have been approved by and comply with the safety standards of your
country. (Type H05VV-F should be used in Europe)
• In UK, use a BS-approved power cord with molded plug having a black (5A) fuse installed for use
with this monitor. If a power cord is not supplied with this monitor, please contact your supplier.
• Do not place any objects onto the monitor and do not use the monitor outdoors.
• The inside of the flourescent tube located within the LCD monitor contains mercury.
Please follow the bylaws or rules of your municipality to dispose of the tube properly.
Immediately unplug your monitor from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
• If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the monitor.
• If the monitor has been exposed to rain or water.
• If the monitor has been dropped or the cabinet damaged.
• If the monitor does not operate normally by following operating instructions.
• Do not bend power cord.
• Do not use monitor in high temperatured, humid, dusty, or oily areas.
• If glass is broken, handle with care.
• Do not cover vent on monitor.
• If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care.
CAUTION
• Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly dissipate. Do
not block ventilated openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat
sources. Do not put anything on top of monitor.
• The power cable connector is the primary means of detaching the system from the
power supply. The monitor should be installed close to a power outlet which is easily accessible.
• Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting.
Image Persistence
Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the
screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images
being displayed for a long period of time should be avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed.
For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor
should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display recommends using a
moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when
not in use.

CORRECT PLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT OF THE MONITOR
CAN REDUCE EYE, SHOULDER AND NECK FATIGUE. CHECK THE
FOLLOWING WHEN YOU POSITION THE MONITOR:
For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for
warm-up.
Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the
screen is at or slightly below eye level. Your eyes
should look slightly downward when viewing the
middle of the screen.
Position your monitor no closer than 16 inches
and no further away than 28 inches from your
eyes. The optimal distance is 20 inches.
Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an
object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.
Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to
minimize glare and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do
not reflect on your screen.
If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an antiglare filter.
Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using
any cleaning solution or glass cleaner!
Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.
Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or
reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head
while you are typing.
Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid
image persistence (after-image effects).
Get regular eye checkups.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:
• Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears
• Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting
• Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals
• Use the preset Color Setting
• Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate moer than 60Hz
• Do not use primary color blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and
may produce eye fatigue to insufficient contrast

*1 Interpolated Resolutions: When resolutions are shown that are lower than the pixel count of the LCD module, text may appear different. This
is normal and necessary for all current flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen. In flat panel technologies, each
dot on the screen is actually one pixel, so to expand resolutions to full screen, an interpolation of the resolution must be done.

Features
ambix® Technology: Dual input technology allowing both analog and digital inputs off of
one connector (DVI-I) as well as additional legacy analog support off of a traditional 15pin VGA connector. Provides traditional MultiSync® technology compatibility for analog as
well as DVI-based digital compatibility for digital inputs. DVI-based digital interfaces
include DVI-D,DFP and P&D.
DVI-I: The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG)
that allows both digital and analog connectors off of one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog, The digital portion is DVI-based.
DVI-D: The digital-only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display Working Group
(DDWG) for digital connections between computers and displays. As a digital-only
connector, analog support is not provided off a DVI-D connector. As a DVI-based digital
only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and
other DVI-based digital connectors such as DFP and P&D.
DFP (Digital Flat Panel): An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal
compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is
necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital connectors such as
DVI and P&D.
P&D (Plug and Display): The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is
more robust than DFP since it allows for other options off a signal connector (options like
USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committe has recognized that DFP is a
subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple
adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D and other DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.
Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their
application, either Landscape orientation for wide documents, or portrait orientation for
the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also
perfect for full screen video conferencing.
Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image
quality but with size and weight limitations. The monitor’s small footprint and low weight
allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.
AccuColor® Control Systems: Six color presets select the desired color setting (sRGB and
NATIVE color presets are standard and cannot be changed). Color temperature increases
or decreases, in each preset. R,Y,G,C,B,M,S: Increases or decreases Red, Yellow, Green,
Cyan, Blue, Magenta and Saturation depending upon which is selected. The change in
color will appear on screen and the direction (increase or decrease) will be shown by the
color bars. NATIVE: Original color presented by the LCD panel that is unadjustable.
OSM® (On-Screen Manager) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements
of your screen image via simple to use on-screen menus.
ErgoDesign® Features: Enhance human ergonomics to improve the working environment,
protect the health of the user and save money. Examples include OSM controls for quick
and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint and
compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.
Plug and Play: The Microsoft® solution with the Windows®95/98/2000/Me/XP operating system facilitates setup and installation by allowing the monitor to send its capabilities

Front Power Switch and computer power switch should be in the ON position.
Check to make sure that a supported mode has been selected on the display card or system being used.
(Please consult display card or system manual to change graphics mode.)
• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility and recommended settings.
• Check the signal cable connector for bent or pushed-in pins.
• Check the signal input, “INPUT 1” or “INPUT 2”.
Power Button does not respond
• Unplug the power cord of the monitor from the AC outlet to turn off and reset the monitor.
• Check the Vacation Switch on the right side of the monitor.
Image Persistence
• Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the screen.
Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed
for a long period of time should be avoided. To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long
as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an image was on the monitor for one hour and a
residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display recommends using a
moving screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not
in use.
Message “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed (screen is either blank or shows rough images only)
• Image is displayed only roughly (pixels are missing) and OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed: Either
signal clock or resolution is too high. Choose one of the supported modes.
• OSM warning “OUT OF RANGE” is displayed on a blank screen: Signal frequency is out of range. Choose one
of the supported modes.
Image is unstable, unfocused or swimming is apparent
• Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.
• Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by
increasing or decreasing the fine total. When the display mode is changed, the OSM Image Adjust
settings may need to be readjusted.
• Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility
and recommended signal timings.
• If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.

TCO’95
Black Model
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’95 approved and
labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed
for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the
burden on the environment and also, to the further development of
environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as
computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful
substances are used both in the products and during the manufacturing. Since it has not been
possible for the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a satisfactory way, most
of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter Nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are
important from the viewpoints of both the work (Internal) and natural (external) environments.
Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a negative effect on the
environment (acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to
conserve energy. Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount of energy
since they are often left running continuously.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’95 scheme which provides for international
and environmental labelling of personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as
a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees),
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The
National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission
of electrical and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals,
brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among
other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to
have an environmental plan which must be adhered to in each country where the company
implements its operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand that the
computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power
consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the
computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the
reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
TCO’95 is a co-operative project between TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional
Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and
NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
Environmental Requirements
Brominated flame retardants
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and
housings. In turn, they delay the spread of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer
casing can consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another group of
environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give rise to similar harm, including
19
1-21
TCO’95 –continued
reproductive damage in fisheating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative*
processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that
disturbances in foetus development may occur.
TCO’95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not
contain organically bound chlorine and bromine.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages
the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning.
TCO’95 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been
developed.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colourgenerating layers of certain
computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million)
of cadmium. The colourgenerating layers of display screens must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays, switches, and back-light systems, Mercury
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more than 25 ppm (parts per million)
of mercury. It also demands that no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics
components concerned with the display unit, except the back-light system.
CFCs (freons)
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards and in the manufacturing
of expanded foam for packaging. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone
layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of ultraviolet light with
consequent increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO’95 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the
manufacturing of the product or its packaging.
*Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
**Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.

Color Control Systems
Color Control Systems: Six colour presets select the desired colour setting (sRGB and NATIVE colour
presets are standard and cannot be changed). Colour temperature increases or decreases, in each preset.
R,Y,G,C,B,M,S: Increases or decreases Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Magenta and Saturation
depending upon which is selected. The change in colour will appear on screen and the direction (increase
or decrease) will be shown by the colour bars.
NATIVE: Original colour presented by the LCD panel that is unadjustable.
Tools 1
SHARPNESS: This function is digitally capable to keep crisp image at any timings. It is continuously
adjustable to get distinct image or soft one as you prefer, and set independently by different timings.
The number of adjustment steps is different depending on whether EXPANSION Mode is OFF, FULL or
ASPECT (1600 x 1200 is OFF Mode).
EXPANSION MODE: Sets the zoom method.
FULL: The image is expanded to 1600 x 1200, regardless of the resolution.
ASPECT: The image is expanded without changing the aspect ratio.
OFF: The image is not expanded.
CUSTOM (Digital input and Resolution of 1600 x 1200 only):
Select one of nine expansion rates. In this mode the resolution may be low and there may
be blank areas. This mode is for use with special video cards.
VIDEO DETECT: Selects the method of video detection when more than one computer is connected.
FIRST DETECT: The video input has to be switched to “FIRST DETECT” mode. When current video
input signal is not present, then the monitor searches for a video signal from the other video input port.
If the video signal is present in the other port, then the monitor switches the video source input port to
the new found video source automatically. The monitor will not look for other video signals while the
current video source is present.
LAST DETECT: The video input has to be switched to the “LAST DETECT” mode. When the monitor is
displaying a signal from the current source and a new secondary source is supplied to the monitor,
then the monitor will automatically switch to the new video source. When current video input signal is
not present, then the monitor searches for a video signal from the other video input port. If the video
signal is present in the other port, then the monitor switches the video source input port to the new
found video source automatically.
NONE: The Monitor will not search the other video input port unless the monitor is turned on.
DVI SELECTION: This function selects the DVI input mode (Input 1). When the DVI selection has been
changed, the computer has to be restarted.
AUTO: By using the DVI-D to DVI-D cable, the DVI SELECTION is DIGITAL.
By using the D-SUB to DVI-A cable, the DVI SELECTION is ANALOG.

•
Do not cover vent on monitor.
•
If monitor or glass is broken, do not come in contact with the liquid crystal and handle with care.
CAUTION
•
•
Allow adequate ventilation around the monitor so that heat can properly dissipate. Do not block ventilated
openings or place the monitor near a radiator or other heat sources. Do not put anything on top of
monitor.
•
The power cable connector is the primary means of detaching the system from the power supply. The
monitor should be installed close to a power outlet which is easily accessible.
• Handle with care when transporting. Save packaging for transporting.
Image Persistence: Image persistence is when a residual or “ghost” image of a previous image remains visible on the
screen. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD monitors’ image persistence is not permanent, but constant images being displayed for
a long period of time should be avoided.
To alleviate image persistence, turn off the monitor for as long as the previous image was displayed. For example, if an
image was on the monitor for one hour and a residual image remains, the monitor should be turned off for one hour to
erase the image.
NOTE: As with all personal display devices, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display-Europe recommends using a moving
screen saver at regular intervals whenever the screen is idle or turning off the monitor when not in use.
English-10

•
For optimum performance, allow 20 minutes for warm-up.
•
Adjust the monitor height so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level.
Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.
•
Position your monitor no closer than 40 cm and no further away than 70 cm from your
eyes. The optimal distance is 50 cm.
•
Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object at least 20 feet away. Blink often.
•
Position the monitor at a 90° angle to windows and other light sources to minimize glare
and reflections. Adjust the monitor tilt so that ceiling lights do not reflect on your screen.
•
If reflected light makes it hard for you to see your screen, use an anti-glare filter.
•
Clean the LCD monitor surface with a lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using any
cleaning solution or glass cleaner!
•
Adjust the monitor’s brightness and contrast controls to enhance readability.
•
Use a document holder placed close to the screen.
•

turning your head while you are typing.
•
Avoid displaying fixed patterns on the monitor for long periods of time to avoid image persistence (after-image effects).
•
Get regular eye checkups.
Ergonomics
To realize the maximum ergonomics benefits, we recommend the following:
•
Adjust the Brightness until the background raster disappears.
•
Do not position the Contrast control to its maximum setting.
•
Use the preset Size and Position controls with standard signals.
•
Use the preset Colour Setting.
•
Use non-interlaced signals with a vertical refresh rate more than 60 Hz.
•
Do not use primary colour blue on a dark background, as it is difficult to see and may produce eye fatigue to insufficient
contrast.

*1 Interpolated Resolutions: When resolutions are shown that are lower than the pixel count of the LCD module, text may appear different. This is
normal and necessary for all current flat panel technologies when displaying non-native resolutions full screen. In flat panel technologies, each dot on
the screen is actually one pixel, so to expand resolutions to full screen, an interpolation of the resolution must be done.

ambix Technology: Dual input technology allowing both analog and digital inputs off of one connector (DVI-I) as well as
additional legacy analog support off of a traditional 15-pin VGA connector. Provides traditional MultiSync® technology
compatibility for analog as well as DVI-based digital compatibility for digital inputs. DVI-based digital interfaces include
DVI-D,DFP and P&D.
DVI-I: The integrated interface ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) that allows both digital and analog
connectors off of one port. The “I” stands for integration for both digital and analog, The digital portion is DVI-based.
DVI-D: The digital-only subset of DVI ratified by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG) for digital connections between
computers and displays. As a digital-only connector, analog support is not provided off a DVI-D connector. As a DVI-based
digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DVI-D and other DVI-based digital
connectors such as DFP and P&D.
DFP (Digital Flat Panel): An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based
digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital
connectors such as DVI and P&D.
P&D (Plug and Display): The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it
allows for other options off a signal connector (options like USB, analog video and IEEE-1394-995). The VESA committe has
recognized that DFP is a subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is
necessary for compatibility between P&D and other DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP.
Pivoting Stand: Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, either Landscape
orientation for wide documents, or portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The
Portrait orientation is also perfect for full screen video conferencing.
Reduced Footprint: Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image quality but with size and weight
limitations. The monitor’s small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another.
Color Control Systems: Allows you to adjust the colours on your screen and customize the colour accuracy of your monitor
to a variety of standards.
OmniColor®: Combines Six-axis colour control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis colour control permits colour adjustments via
six axes (R, G, B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard
provides the monitor with a uniform colour profile. This assures that the colours displayed on the monitor are exactly the same
as on the colour printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colours on
your screen and customise the colour accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards.
OSM (On-Screen Manager) Controls: Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to
use on-screen menus.
ErgoDesign® Features: Enhance human ergonomics to improve the working environment, protect the health of the user and
save money. Examples include OSM controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision,
small footprint and compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions.
Plug and Play: The Microsoft® solution with the Windows® 95/98/2000/Me/XP operating system facilitates setup and
installation by allowing the monitor to send its capabilities (such as screen size and resolutions supported) directly to your
computer, automatically optimizing display performance.
IPM (Intelligent Power Manager) System: Provides innovative power-saving methods that allow the monitor to shift to a
lower power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions
and lowering the air conditioning costs of the workplace.
Multiple Frequency Technology: Automatically adjusts monitor to the display card’s scanning frequency, thus displaying the
resolution required.
FullScan Capability: Allows you to use the entire screen area in most resolutions, significantly expanding image size.
Wide Viewing Angle Technology: Allows the user to be able to see the monitor from any angle (176 degrees) from any
orientation — Portrait or Landscape. Provides full 176° viewing angles either up, down, left or right.
VESA Standard Mounting Interface: Allows users to connect their MultiSync monitor to any VESA standard third party
mounting arm or bracket. Allows for the monitor to be mounted on a wall or an arm using any third party compliant device.
NaViSet™: Is a ground-breaking software family, developed by NEC-Mitsubishi Eletronics Display Europe GmbH, providing
intuitive access to all monitor setting controls and remote diagnosis via the Windows interface, based upon the VESA
standard, DDC/CI. Using a standard VGA or DVI signal cable, NaViSet™ can either benefit single users or, with NaViSet™
Administrator, can reduce the Total Cost of Ownership through remote network-wide maintenance, diagnosis and assetreporting.
No-touch Auto Adjust (Analog input only): No-touch auto adjust automatically adjusts the monitor to optimal settings upon
initial setup.
sRGB Color Control: A new optimized colour management standard which allows for colour matching on computer displays
and other peripherals. The sRGB, which is based on the calibrated colour space, allows for optimal colour representation and
backward compatibility with other common colour standards.

Environmental Requirements
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO’95
approved and labeled product! Your choice has
provided you with a product developed for
professional use. Your purchase has also contributed
to reducing the burden on the environment and also,
to the further development of environmentally
adapted electronics products.
Brominated flame retardants
Brominated flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards,
cables, wires, casings and housings. In turn, they delay the spread
of fire. Up to thirty percent of the plastic in a computer casing can
consist of flame retardant substances. These are related to another
group of environmental toxins, PCBs, which are suspected to give
rise to similar harm, including reproductive damage in fisheating
birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes.
Flame retardants have been found in human blood and
researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may
occur.
TCO’95 demand requires that plastic components weighing more
than 25 grams must not contain organically bound chlorine and
bromine.
Why do we have environmentally labelled computers?
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an
established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and
services to the environment. The main problem, as far as
computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that
environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products
and during the manufacturing. Since it has not been possible for
the majority of electronics equipment to be recycled in a
satisfactory way, most of these potentially damaging substances
sooner or later enter Nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as
energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints
of both the work (Internal) and natural (external) environments.
Since all methods of conventional electricity generation have a
negative effect on the environment (acidic and climate-influencing
emissions, radioactive waste, etc.), it is vital to conserve energy.
Electronics equipment in offices consume an enormous amount
of energy since they are often left running continuously.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and
capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher
doses, causes lead poisoning.
TCO’95 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no
replacement has yet been developed.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the
colourgenerating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more
than 25 ppm (parts per million) of cadmium. The colourgenerating
layers of display screens must not contain any cadmium.
What does labelling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO’95 scheme
which provides for international and environmental labelling of
personal computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a
joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of
Professional Employees), Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish
Society for Nature Conservation) and NUTEK (The National Board
for Industrial and Technical Development in Sweden).
The requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, emission of electrical and magnetic fields,
energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands concern restrictions on the presence
and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame
retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other
things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the
manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental plan which must
be adhered to in each country where the company implements its
operational policy. The energy requirements include a demand
that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of
inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in
one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer
shall be reasonable for the user.
Labelled products must meet strict environmental demands, for
example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic
fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
TCO’95 is a co-operative project between TCO (The Swedish
Confederation of Professional Employees),
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature
Conservation) and NUTEK (The National Board for Industrial and
Technical Development in Sweden).
Mercury**
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays, switches, and
back-light systems, Mercury damages the nervous system and is
toxic in high doses.
TCO’95 requirement states that batteries may not contain more
than 25 ppm (parts per million) of mercury. It also demands that
no mercury is present in any of the electrical or electronics
components concerned with the display unit, except the back-light
system.
CFCs (freons)
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit
boards and in the manufacturing of expanded foam for packaging.
CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in
the stratosphere, causing increased reception on Earth of
ultraviolet light with consequent increased risks of skin cancer
(malignant melanoma).
The relevant TCO’95 requirement; Neither CFCs nor HCFCs may
be used during the manufacturing of the product or its packaging.
*Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate
within living organisms.
**Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are
Bio-accumulative.
