In addition to the safety precautions given in “Read this first!”, also observe the following instructions.

Handle carefully

Avoid using the unit outdoors

  • Use the product in an ambient temperature of 0 °C to 40 °C (32 °F to 104 °F). Avoid using the product in a cold place where the temperature drops below 0 °C (32 °F) or in a hot place where the temperature rises above 40 °C (104 °F) because an extremely low or high temperature will adversely affect the internal parts.

Turn off the power before connecting or disconnecting cables

  • Before connecting or disconnecting the cables, be sure to turn the power off.

Avoid humidity and dust

  • Avoid using the product in a very humid or dusty place because a lot of humidity and dust will cause damage to the internal parts.


  • Turn the power off and wipe the product with a dry cloth.
  • To remove stubborn dirt, dip a cloth into a diluted solution of kitchen detergent (neutral detergent), wring it out well, and wipe the product gently. Then, wipe the product with a cloth dampened with water. Finally, wipe the product with a dry cloth.

Optical fiber multi cable

  • When the optical fiber connectors of the optical fiber multi cable (sold separately) become dirty, the optical signal transmission state will deteriorate. Use commercially available optical connector cleaner to clean the optical connector end faces in accordance with the instructions.

Consumable parts

  • The cooling fan is a consumable part. The replacement cycle is approximately 10 years (when used approximately 8 hours per day).

Contact your dealer to request cooling fan replacement.
