IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Protect the Product from Lightning
Keep These Instructions
For added protection, unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. In
addition to disconnecting the AC power from the wall outlet, disconnect the signal inputs.
Heed All Warnings
Verify the Power Source from the On/Off Power Light
Follow All Instructions
When the on/off power light is not illuminated, the apparatus may still be connected to the power source. The light
goes out when the apparatus is turned off, regardless of whether it is still plugged into an AC power source.
Power Source Warning
Eliminate AC Mains Overloads
Ground the Product
WARNING:
Avoid electric shock and fire hazard! 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 the third prong is provided for your safety. If the provided plug
does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
If this product connects to coaxial cable wiring, be sure the cable system is grounded (earthed). Grounding provides
some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
If this product connects to an outdoor antenna or cable system, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded
(earthed). This provides some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electric Code (NEC) ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1990, provides the following information:
• Grounding of the mast and supporting structure
• Grounding the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit
• Size of the grounding conductors
• Location of the antenna-discharge unit
• Connection to grounding electrodes
• Requirements for the grounding electrodes (see the following antenna grounding diagram as recommended by
NEC ANSI/NFPA 70)
