Notes on safety
For your own safety you should read through this chapter at first completely!
Risk of electrical shocks!
XXOnly connect the device to a properly wired and earthed mains power socket with mains voltage of 230 V ~
/50 Hz.
XXDo not operate the device if the power cord or the mains plug are damaged.
XXNever submerse the device in water. Wipe it with a slightly moistened cloth only.
XXDo not expose the device to rain and never use it in a damp or wet environment.
XXMake sure that the power cord never becomes wet or moist during use.
XXUnder no circumstances may you open the device housing. Should you do so your safety would not be
assured and the warranty will become void. There are no operational components whatsoever inside, only
really high voltage that can give you a deadly shock!
XXDo not place objects containing fluids, e.g. flower vases or beer bottles, on or near the device.
XXNotice regarding disconnection from mains-power:
To completely disconnect the device from mains power, you must pull the plug from the power socket. For
this reason the device should be placed in a position where unobstructed access to the power socket is assured at all times, so that in an emergency you will be able to immediately pull out the plug. To eliminate the
risk of fire you should completely disconnect the power plug from the power socket when the device is not
going to be used for a long time, for example, during holidays.
XXAlways grasp the power cord by the plug. Do not pull on the cord itself and never touch the power cord with
wet hands as this could result in a short circuit or an electrical shock. Do not place the device, speakers or
anything else on the power cord and make sure that it does not become clamped. Never tie knots in the
power cord and do not bind it together with other cables. Lay the power cord so that no one can step on or
stumble over it. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or an electrical shock. Check the power cord from
time to time. Should it become damaged contact our customer service department to have it replaced.
XXAlways operate the device only on a correctly earthed socket, never sever the power cord’s earth wire.
Otherwise a LIFE THREATENING situation exists!
XXniemals e
Risk of fire!
XXNever leave the device unattended during operation.
XXNever cover the ventilation slots of the device while it is on. Do not place the device in locations that are
subject to direct sunlight. If you do, it may overheat and become irreparably damaged.
XXNever operate the amplifier in the vicinity of heat sources such as cookers, heating elements or other heat
producing installations.
XXDo not place open fire sources, such as candles, on the device.
XXBefore a storm and/or a thunderstorm with a risk of lightning, please disconnect the device from the electrical power source.
Risk of personal injury!
XXKeep children away from the power cord and the device. Children frequently underestimate the dangers of
electrical devices.
XXProvide a stable location for the device.
XXDo not operate the device if it has sustained a fall or is damaged. Have the device checked or,
if necessary, repaired by qualified technicians.
Maintenance and care
XXNever submerse the device in water or any other liquid. Don‘t let any liquid get into the housing. This would
damage the unit and cause a short circuit.
XXBefore cleaning the device you must disconnect it from the mains. Clean the surface of the device only with
a slightly damp cloth. Never use petrol, solvents or any aggressive cleaners! These could damage the surface of the unit‘s housing!

in order to avoid update frustrated and damage the CF card.
Save the program first, or updating the software may lead the memory program
useless. Please refer to “Write CF card” and “Read CF card” to operate.
NOTICE: The format of the CF card should be FAT12 or FAT16, but not FAT32 and NTFS, be sure there is no
long-name files under the root directory (the amount of the name below 8), the character must be start with letters, and compose with letters or number or underline.

PROFILE.CIF (as the profile cyclostyle)
The finished file should use a short name below 8 characters, All use capital letters and suffix with CIF transitorily. (IL-2420 controller nonsupport long file name) or the controller can’t read up the profile information.
IM-1200S.CIF is the profile of ACME IM-1200S
Enactment special code, so the controller should distil some channel characteristic to manage.

Store the profile that you want to input to the controller under the root directory of CF card.
EXP: If CF card is disk F, then the file input route should be “F:\DIR2402\IM-1200S”
