This lightning flash with arrowhead
symbol within an equilateral triangle
is intended to alert the user to the
presence of uninsulated dangerous
voltage within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an
equilateral triangle is intended
to alert the user to the presence
of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions
in the literature accompanying the product.
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK
HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS PRODUCT TO RAIN
OR MOISTURE.
WARNING: Do not install this equipment in a
confined space such as a book case or similar unit.
CAUTION: Do not use high voltage products
around this product. (ex. Electrical swatter) This
product may malfunction due to electrical shock.
NOTICE: For safety marking information including
product identification and supply ratings, please
refer to the main label on the bottom or rear of the
apparatus.
For models using an adapter
Only use the AC adapter supplied with this device.
Do not use a power supply from another device or
another manufacturer. Using any other power cable
or power supply may cause damage to the device
and void your warranty.
CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon
a dedicated circuit;
That is, a single outlet circuit which powers only
that appliance and has no additional outlets or
branch circuits. Check the specification page of this
owner’s manual to be certain. Do not overload wall
outlets. Overloaded wall outlets, loose or damaged
wall outlets, extension cords, frayed power cords, or
damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous.
Any of these conditions could result in electric
shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your
appliance, and if its appearance indicates damage
or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the
appliance, and have the cord replaced with an
exact replacement part by an authorized service
center. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked,
pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay
particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and
the point where the cord exits the appliance. To
disconnect power from the mains, pull out the
mains cord plug. When installing the product,
ensure that the plug is easily accessible.
