HOW TO GET THE CORRECT RESULTS

Check the battery capacity before beginning your logging task. If you want to use the
USB interface to supply power for data logger, this can be skipped.
 Observe the IP rating, measurment range and operating range. Allow it to be located in a
place with a right environment.
ENVIRONMENTAL DISPOSAL
This product may contain substances that can be hazardous to the environment if not
disposed of properly. Electrical and electronic equipment should never be disposed of with
general house hold waste but must be separately collected for their proper treatment and
recovery. The crossed-out bin symbol, placed on the product, reminds you of the need to
dispose of the product correctly at the end of its life. In this way you will assist in the
recovery, recycling and re-use of many of the materials used in this product.
BATTERY Most batteries end up in landfill where their hazardous material can leach into the
soil and cause harm. It is much more environmentally friendly to recycle batteries in a safe,
correct manner. Follow applicable country, state, and local regulations for disposal/recycling
of the lithium battery supplied with your data logger.
RoHS The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EC of the
European Parliament stipulates that certain hazardous substances must not be present
above defined levels in products. This data logging product is manufactured to be RoHS
compliant.
