Safety precautions
General precautions
– The modem generates radio frequency (RF) power. When using the modem care must be taken on
safety issues related to RF interference as well as regulations of RF equipment.
– Do not use your phone in aircraft, hospitals, petrol stations or in places where using GSM or CDMA
products is prohibited.
– Be sure that the modem will not be interfering with nearby equipment. For example: pacemakers or
medical equipment. The antenna of the modem should be away from computers, office equipment,
home appliance, etc.
– An external antenna must be connected to the modem for proper operation. Only used approved
antennas with the modem. Please contact authorized dealer on finding an approved antenna.
– Always keep the antenna with minimum safety distance of 26.6cm or more from human body. Do
not put the antenna inside metallic box, containers, etc.
Using the modem in vehicle
– Check for any regulation or law authorizing the use of GSM/CDMA in vehicle in your country before
installing the modem
– Install the modem by qualified personnel. Consult your vehicle dealer for any possible interference
of electronic parts by the modem.
– The modem should be connected to the vehicle’s supply system by using a fuse-protected terminal
in the vehicle’s fuse box
– Be careful when the modem is powered by the vehicle’s main battery. The battery may be drained
after extended period.
Protecting your modem
To ensure error-free usage, please install and operate your modem with care. Do remember the following:
– Do not expose the modem to extreme conditions such as high humidity/rain, high temperatures,
direct sunlight, caustic/harsh chemicals, dust, or water.
– Do not try to disassemble or modify the modem. There is no user serviceable part inside and the
warranty would be void.
– Do not drop, hit or shake the modem. Do not use the modem under extreme vibrating condition.
– Do not pull the antenna or power supply cable. Please attach or detach by holding the connector.
– Connect the modem only according to the instruction manual. Failure to do it will void the warranty
