  • Page 17: Installation Installation Site

    INSTALLATION Installation site For correct operation of the incubator, install it in a location with the following conditions. WARNING When using CO gas for control, make sure that there is an adequate ventilation. Using CO gas in a small room without adequate ventilation may cause gas poisoning or oxygen deprivation. In addition, when opening the incubator doors, do not directly inhale the air in the chamber.
  • Page 18 INSTALLATION  Low humidity Select a site with a relative humidity of 80 %R.H. or lower. Using the incubator in high humidity may result in current leakage or electric shock. WARNING Do not use the incubator outdoors. If the incubator is exposed to rain water, it may result in current leakage or electric shock.
