Notes on Use
Always use the instrument correctly. If the instrument is used in a manner not described in
this instruction manual, it may cause injury, electrocution, or damage to the instrument itself.
▌Operating Environment
Use the instrument at an ambient temperature between 0°C and 40°C and a relative humidity
of 85% or less (at 35°C) with no condensation. Be sure to use the instrument within this range.
• If the operating humidity range is exceeded, errors may occur for measurements of
dark colors. Do not use it in areas of rapid temperature changes.
• Do not leave the instrument in direct sunlight or near heat sources such as a stove. Doing so may cause
the internal temperature of the instrument to become much higher than the ambient temperature.
• Do not use the instrument in areas where dust, cigarette smoke, or chemical gases are
present. Doing so may cause deterioration in performance or the instrument may malfunction.
• Do not use the instrument near equipment that produces a strong magnetic field (such as speakers).
• The instrument is a pollution level 2 product (equipment that may cause temporary electrical
hazards due to contamination or condensation or products that are used in such an environment).
• Do not use the instrument at altitudes higher than 2,000 m.
• The optional AC adapter has been designed exclusively for indoor use. Do not shortcircuit the output plug. The AC adapter should never be used outdoors because rain or

fixed position.
The mask used for target measurement, the mask
used for sample measurement, and the mask
settings for the instrument do not match.
(When using the instrument on battery power)
• Batteries are low on power.
Because switching to the printer connection setting when the instrument is
powered by a PC or the USB–AC adapter will cause the power supply to be
stopped, which may damage the memory, this setting cannot be changed.
Even if the setting for saving measurement data to the instrument
is set to ON, data cannot be saved because the number of saved
data entries will exceed 1000 entries upon the next measurement.
Some data saved in the instrument may be corrupt,
which is preventing the data from being accessed
properly.
This message is displayed if the instrument has not
been connected to the power source for a long
period of time and the backup battery has died,
causing the built-in clock to stop.
