CAUTIONS FOR USAGE
■ Always use a dedicated power source. The power source of this freezer is single phase and local
voltage. The power source should be the dedicated circuit with a dedicated breaker. Do not connect
this freezer to the branch circuit for other electric appliances.
■ Put on dry gloves when you take out refrigerated articles from the freezer. Handing frozen contents or
the inside walls with naked hands may cause frostbite.
■ For the cleaning of the unit, use a cloth containing diluted neutral dishwashing detergent (Undiluted
detergent may break the plastic parts. For the dilution, follow the instruction enclosed with the
detergent). When a diluted neutral dishwashing detergent is used to clean the unit, wipe the unit
thoroughly with a cloth soaked in clean water. Then wipe the unit with a dry cloth to eliminate the
moisture.
■ Do not clean the unit with scrubbing brushes, acid, thinner, solvents powdered soap, cleanser or hot
water. These agents can scratch the paint or cause it to peel. Plastic and rubber parts can be easily
damaged by these materials. Especially never use any volatile solvent to clean the plastic or rubber
parts.
■ The cooling pipe is routed in the rear of the freezer. Never use a knife or a screw driver, etc. to
remove the frost. They may cause damage of chamber wall or improper operation of the unit. And do
not make any holes for attaching accessories on the freezer wall.
■ The digital thermometer of this unit is designed to display the temperature of the center part of the
freezing compartment. Although the thermometer sometimes display a temperature about 2oC higher
than the actual temperature of the center part, it gradually approaches the real temperature.
■ Do not put too many warm articles into a freezer compartment before enough operating. Put items in
a few at a time after the freezer compartment temperature has cooled enough.
■ The space near the freezer compartment door, about 10 cm from the inner lid, sometimes shows a
higher temperature than the center part. The difference is about 5oC; the lower part may be better for
long term storage.
■ Before operating the freezer, an inner lid should be put in to reduce temperature difference between
top and bottom of the freezing compartment.
■ When it is desired to place an instrument requiring measuring cable and power cord in the cabinet, the
cable and cord can be led through the access port provided on the left side wall on the cabinet. After
installation, replace a rubber cap and insulation as they are. Failure to use a rubber cap or insulation
can interfere with the proper lowering of temperature and lead to condensation on the outside of the port.
7
CAUTIONS FOR USAGE
■ The top surface of the frame sometimes becomes hot during the initial operation or when operating in a
hot environment. This is due to the hot gas circuit for preventing dew, and is not an indication of a
malfunction.
■ This unit is provided with the filter check lamp. If the filter check lamp is flashed, clean the condenser
filter. Refer to page 25 “Cleaning of condenser filter”. A clogged filter may cause poor cooling and
compressor trouble.
■ When connecting a liquid CO2 cylinder for the back-up system , consult your dealer of a neighboring
engineering shop of high pressure gas.
■ Leave the remote alarm switch “OFF” until the inside temperature of the freezer reaches the
appropriate level. Leave the back-up system switch “OFF” as well. After the inside temperature
reaches the appropriate level, set the needle for the warning device operation of the temperature
recorder.
■ When the unit is first installed, or re-started after long period of no use, the power failure alarm may not
operate, because its Cadnica batteries have completely discharged. This does not denote a malfunction.
In this case, continue to operate the unit for about 3 hours. To fully recharge the completely discharged
batteries, the unit has to be operated for about 2 days.
■ Cover the control panel with the control panel cover to avoid the malfunction resulting from an
accidental contact with control panel (such as power switch OFF).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Back-up system
WARNING
As with any equipment that uses CO2 gas, there is a likelihood of oxygen depletion in the vicinity
of the equipment. It is important that you assess the work site to endure there is suitable and
sufficient ventilation. If restricted ventilation is suspected, then other methods of ensuring a
safe environment must be considered. These may include atmosphere monitoring and warning
devices.
The freezer is provided with an automatic liquid CO2 gas injection device as a back-up system. This
freezer prevents the chamber temperature from going up by injecting the liquid CO2 gas when the power
supply is disconnected (power failure, disconnection of power cord, breaker OFF) or in the case of failure
of freezer itself. The liquid CO2 gas is injected with the activation of solenoid valve energized by battery
when the chamber temperature reaches the alarm temperature.
Following shows the procedure for setting the back-up system.
1. Setting of liquid CO2 gas cylinder
By using the joint and pipe enclosed with the
freezer, connect the liquid CO2 gas cylinder to the
joint of the back-up system. For this setting,
consult with a qualified gas supplier or Sanyo sales
agency.

gas cylinder
Battery
2. After setting the liquid CO2 gas cylinder, operate
the freezer until the chamber temperature reaches
the required level.
Solenoid valve
Pipe
3. Set the warning indicator of the recorder at the
temperature higher than -70oC. The back-up
system is operated continuously if the warning
indicator is set at the temperature lower than -70oC.
This means the liquid CO2 gas is consumed very
quickly.
4. Switch on the back-up system.
5. Make sure that liquid CO2 gas spouts into the freezer chamber by pressing the back-up test switch.
Note:
• The liquid CO2 gas cylinder loses its cooling capacity at speed when the ambient temperature is over
31oC. Install the liquid CO2 gas cylinder in the cool environment. And the duration of back-up time per
one liquid CO2 gas cylinder varies depending on the ambient temperature. Refer to “Installation of
back-up system” enclosed with the freezer for the available back-up time.
• The liquid CO2 gas cylinder should be a siphon type.
• Use the pipe encloses with the freezer for the setting. (The extension of the pipe is not permitted
because of cooling capacity.)

TEMPERATURE RECORDER
Setting of back-up temperature
1. There is a red guide on the top of the temperature displayer. Adjust the guide with your finger to
back-up temperature, at which temperature the auxiliary cooling system starts to operate.
2. Set at a temperature 15oC higher than that of the freezer compartment.
Penholder
Install a recording pen in the recording hand as
shown in the figure. Make sure that the pen is
completely inserted for accurate recording. The
pen is packed together with the chart.
1. Let down the lever of the penholder, then pull out
the cartridge from the mounted position.
2. Insert a new pen.
3. Mount the cartridge into place.
4. Lift up the penholder lever and make sure that the
pen point touches the chart.
Note:
■ Turn off the back-up switch when the freezer operation is stopped or the back-up system is not used.
The battery for back-up system is discharged when the back-up switch is kept on.
■ The additional felt pen or recording paper is available from Sanyo sales agency.
■ To stop the temperature recorder, remove the cell from the recorder. The back-up system can
operate without recorder cell. Always remove a felt pen as well because the recording paper can be torn
resulting from ink spot. The torn paper may interfere pen tip movement, which results in no activation of
back-up system.
■ The cell for recorder normally keeps about 1 year. However, the cell life is shorten depending on the
ambient temperature condition. The enclosed cell may have shorter life since it is for monitor.
■ The liquid leakage or rust can be caused when a used cell or a cell over effective limit is left as it is,
which gives adverse effect on the recorder.
