For your protection, please read these safety instructions completely before operating the equipment and keep this manual
for future reference. The information in this summary is intended for operators. Carefully observe all warnings, precautions
and instructions both on the apparatus and in the operating instructions.
Equipment Markings
The lightning flash symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user
to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltages” within the product’s enclosure
that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electrical shock.
The exclamation mark within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions within
literature accompanying the equipment.
?+$,5,6"
Water and moisture - Do not operate the equipment under or near water - for example near a bathtub, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool or in areas with high humidity.
Cleaning - Unplug the apparatus from the wall outlet before cleaning or polishing. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners. Use a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water for cleaning the exterior of the apparatus.
Ventilation - Do not block any of the ventilation openings of the apparatus. Install in accordance with the installation
instructions. Never cover the slots and openings with a cloth or other material. Never install the apparatus near heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat. Be wary of allowing
liquid, small foreign objects, dirt, sand, or the like fall into the ventilation openings.
Grounding or Polarization - Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has
two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide
blade or third prong is provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician.
Power-Cord Protection - Route the power cord so as to avoid it being walked on or pinched by items placed upon or
against it, paying particular attention to the plugs, receptacles, and the point where the cord exits from
the apparatus.
Attachments - Only use attachments as recommended by the manufacturer.
Accessories - Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or
sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination
to avoid injury from tip-over.
Lightning - Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.
ISDN cables - CAUTION - To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunication line cord.
Servicing - Do not attempt to service the apparatus yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltages or other hazards, and will void the warranty. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Damaged Equipment - Unplug the unit from the outlet and refer servicing to qualified personnel under the following
conditions:
When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed
If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the unit
If the unit has been exposed to rain or moisture
If the unit has been subjected to excessive shock by being dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged
If the unit fails to operate in accordance with the operating instructions
