B.1.2 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the DM-F
Series may result in permanent damage to the DM-F Series and severe
injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the DM-F Series. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is therefore
critical that whenever the DM-F Series is opened and any of the electrical components are
handled, the following anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.

Wear an anti-static wristband: Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging any electrical component.

Self-grounding: Before handling any electrical component, touch any
grounded conducting material. During the time the electrical component is
handled, frequently touch any conducting materials that are connected to the

designed for the purpose. In such case, the product will be explicitly mentioned in the
cleaning tips. Below is a list of items to use when cleaning the DM-F Series.

Cloth – Although paper towels or tissues can be used, a soft, clean piece of
cloth is recommended when cleaning the DM-F Series.

Water or rubbing alcohol – A cloth moistened with water or rubbing alcohol
can be used to clean the DM-F Series.
