Anyone intending to use a radio in a location
where hazardous concentrations of flammable materials exist (hazardous atmosphere) is advised to
become familiar with the subject of intrinsic safety
and with the National Electric Code NFPA 70
(National Fire Protection Association) Article 500
(hazardous [classified] locations).
UL Approval labels are attached to the Alpha Gold
Pager to identify the unit as being UL Approved for
specified hazardous atmospheres. This label specifies the hazardous Class/Division/Group which will
appear as follows:
RAD DEV FOR HAZ LOC
DIV2, I, A,B,C,D II F.G
Substitution of Components may impair Intrinsic
safety.
The following is the Approved battery listing
to be used for the UL Approved Alpha Gold

!
WARNING
• Do not operate equipment in a hazardous
atmosphere unless it is a type especially
qualified (for example, UL Approved) for such
use. An explosion or fire may result.
• Do not operate a UL Approved Product in a
hazardous atmosphere if it has been physically damaged (for example, cracked housing). An explosion or fire may result.
• Do not replace or charge batteries in a hazardous atmosphere. Contact sparking may
occur while installing or removing batteries
and cause an explosion or fire.

can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
