Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a high resolution monitor. It will give you
high resolution performance and convenient reliable operation in a
variety of video operating modes.
Features
The monitor is
a 19 inches (18.0 inches viewable ) intelligent,
microprocessor based monitor compatible with most analog RGB (Red,
Green, Blue) display standards, including IBM PC , PS/2 , Apple ,
Macintosh , Centris , Quadra , and Macintosh II family.
The monitor
provides crisp text and vivid color graphics with VGA,
SVGA, XGA, and VESA Ergonomic modes (non-interlaced), and most

Cleaning
Unplug the monitor before cleaning the face of the picture tube.
Use a slightly damp (not wet) cloth. Do not use an aerosol directly on
the picture tube because overspray may cause electrical shock.
Repacking
Do not throw away the carton and packing materials. They make an
ideal container in which to transport the unit. When shipping the unit
to another

Computers
You have just purchased a TCO'99 approved and labelled product! Your
choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use.
Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the
environment and also to the further development of environmentally
adapted electronics products.
Congratulations!
product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which
provides for an international environmental and quality labelling of personal
computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation),
Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration)
This
and SEMKO AB.
The requirements
cover a wide
range of issues: environment,
electric and magnetic fields, energy
ergonomics, usability, reduction of
consumption and electrical safety.
In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established
method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the
environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other
electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful
substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture.
Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of
electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances
sooner or later enter nature.
Why do we have
environmentally labelled
computers?
There
also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy
consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the
work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of
electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g.
acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to
save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running
continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.

Environmental
The environmental demands has been developed by Svenska
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation).
These demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy
metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and
chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared
for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental
policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company
implements its operational policy.
What does the
environmenal

labelling
involve?
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or
display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power
consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time
to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements
met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may

Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires,
casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay
the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can

requirements
consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain
bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to
another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants
containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise
to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating
birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame
retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that
disturbances in foetus development may occur.
The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components weighing
more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically
bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed
circuit boards since no substitutes are available.

Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating
layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous
system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement
states that batteries, the colour-generating layers of display screens and
the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages
system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99
requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also
demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics
components associated with the labelled unit. There is however one
exception. Mercury is, for the time being, permitted in the back light
system of flat panel monitors as there today is no commercially available
alternative. TCO aims on removing this exception when a mercury free
alternative is available.

CFCs
(freons)
The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs
may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs
(freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs
break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the
stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with
e.g. increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a
consequence.
Lead**

Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses,
causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO'99 requirement permits the
inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
