Connecting the Power cord
Check first to make sure that the power cord you use is the correct type required
for your area.
•
The monitor has a universal power supply that allows operation in either 100/120 V
AC or 220/240 V AC voltage area. No user-adjustment is required.
•
Plug one end of the power cord to the AC inlet, and plug the other end into an AC
outlet.
•
For units using 120 V AC:
Use a UL-listed cord set, type SVT wire and plug rated 10 A/125 V.
•
For units using 220/240 V AC:
Use a cord set consisting of H05VV-F cord and plug rated 10 A/250 V. The cord set should have
the appropriate safety approvals for the country in which the equipment will be installed.

Power saving
The monitor will be switched to “power saving” mode by the control signal from the display
controller, as indicated by the amber-colored power LED.

Power saving
Amber
The power saving mode will be kept until a control signal has been detected or the
keyboard or mouse is activated. The recovery time from “power saving” mode back to
“on” is around 3 seconds.
Display Data Channel (DDC)
To make installation easier, so long as your system supports the DDC protocol, the
monitor is able to plug-and-play. The DDC is a communication protocol through which
the monitor automatically informs the host system about its capabilities; for example,
supported resolutions and corresponding timing. The monitor supports the DDC2B
standard.
