type plug has two blades and a third
grounding prong. The wide blade or the
third prong are provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into
your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
This ‘bolt of lightning’ indicates uninsulated
material within your unit may cause an
electrical shock. For the safety of everyone
in your household, please do not remove
product covering.
The ‘exclamation point’ calls attention to
features for which you should read the
enclosed literature closely to prevent
operating and maintenance problems.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or
electric shock, this apparatus should not be
exposed to rain or moisture and objects filled

•
Where the MAINS plug or an appliance
coupler is used as the disconnect device,
the disconnect device shall remain readily
operable.
Warning
• Never remove the casing of this DCM250.
• Never lubricate any part of this DCM250.
• Never place this DCM250 on other electrical
equipment.
• Keep this DCM250 away from direct sunlight, naked
flames or heat.
• Never look into the laser beam inside the DCM250.
• Ensure that you always have easy access to the power
cord, plug or adaptor to disconnect the DCM250 from
the power.
Caution
• Use of controls or adjustments or performance of
procedures other than herein may result in hazardous
radiation exposure or other unsafe operation.
Hearing safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
• Using headphones at a high volume can
impair your hearing. This product can
produce sounds in decibel ranges that
may cause hearing loss for a normal
person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are
offered for those that may have already
experienced some hearing loss.
• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your
hearing ‘comfort level’ adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So after prolonged
listening, what sounds ‘normal’ can
actually be loud and harmful to your
hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can
hear it comfortably and clearly, without
distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
Prolonged exposure to sound, even
at normally ‘safe’ levels, can also cause
hearing loss.
• Be sure to use your equipment
reasonably and take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following guidelines
when using your headphones.
• Listen at reasonable volumes for
reasonable periods of time.
• Be careful not to adjust the volume as
your hearing adapts.
• Do not turn up the volume so high that
you can’t hear what’s around you.
• You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations. Do not use headphones while
operating a motorized vehicle, cycling,
skateboarding, etc.; it may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.
