PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE OPERATION WARNING As with any equipment that uses CO gas, there is a likelihood of oxygen depletion in the vicinity of the equipment. It is important that you assess the work site to ensure there is suitable and sufficient ventilation. If restricted ventilation is suspected, then other methods of ensuring a safe environment must be considered.
PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE OPERATION CAUTION Select a level and sturdy floor for installation. This precaution will prevent the unit from tipping. Improper installation may result in water spillage or injury from the unit tipping over. Connect the unit to a power source as indicated on the rating label attached to the unit. Use of any other voltage or frequency other than that on the rating label may cause fire or electric shock.
PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE OPERATION CAUTION Be careful not to tip over the unit during movement to prevent damage or injury. Disconnect the power plug when the unit is not used for long periods. The deteriorated insulation may cause electric shock, current leakage or fire. Do not put the packing plastic bag within reach of children as suffocation may result Take care of the inside of the outer door.
CAUTIONS FOR USAGE 1. Install on a sturdy and level floor Install the unit on a sturdy and level floor and take precaution for preventing tipping over. Inadequate installation may result in water leakage or injury from the unit falling or tipping over. 2.
CAUTIONS FOR USAGE 9. Use clean containers The Petri dishes or bottles for culturing may cause contamination in the chamber. Clean the containers before storing them in the chamber. 10. Allow adequate space between the cultures When storing cultures in the chamber, keep the Petri dishes or bottles containing the cultures sufficiently apart from each other to allow adequate air circulation.
CAUTIONS FOR USAGE Labels on the unit Some warning and/or caution labels are attached on the unit. Following shows the description of such labels. This label is on the cover in which the electrical components of high voltage are enclosed to prevent the electric shock. The cover should be removed by a qualified engineer or a service personnel only.

INSTALLATION Installation site To operate this unit properly and to obtain maximum performance, install the unit in a location with the following conditions: Note: The ambient temperature must be at least 5 C lower than the set temperature. 1. A location not subjected to direct sunlight or direct air flow from an air conditioner 2.
INSTALLATION Prevent contamination To prevent contamination of the chamber, select an appropriate location for installation as well as ensuring the complete disinfection of the chamber components. 1. Avoid hot and humid location Avoid location with high temperature and/or humidity as the presence of bacteria in the air is greater than in the normal environment.
BEFORE COMMENCING OPERATION Sterilizing of chamber and attachments Before first start-up of the unit, the chamber and internal attachments should be cleaned and sterilized as follows. Note: Take care not to damage the water level sensor or UV lamp (option) at the time of removal or replacement of attachments.
BEFORE COMMENCING OPERATION Connection of N (or O ) gas cylinder WARNING Check the gas type and ensure that it is fit for the purpose. Make sure that all pipes are connected correctly and are not liable to become disconnected. Ensure that the gas pressure is set at the specified value.
BEFORE COMMENCING OPERATION Connection of gas injection nozzle In the case of control of O density in the chamber, connect the gas injection nozzle to the gas injection port by using the connecting pipe enclosed (inner diameter; 5mm, outer diameter; 9mm, length; 300mm). This helps faster recovery of humidity after opening of the inner door.
BEFORE COMMENCING OPERATION Connection of CO gas cylinder WARNING Check the gas type and ensure that it is fit for the purpose. Make sure that all pipes are connected correctly and are not liable to become disconnected. Ensure that the gas pressure is set at the specified value.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Operation of keys on the control panel Table below shows the basic procedure for setting the chamber temperature, CO and O density. The upper limit alarm temperature setting is also shown in the table. Perform key operations in the sequence indicated in the table.
OFF means the accumulated time has exceeded about 1,000 hours and recommends the replacement of the lamp. When replacing the UV lamp, contact Sanyo sales representative or agent. • E18 is displayed on the temperature indicator when the UV lamp is burned out. In this case, replace the lamp immediately.
5 minutes or if only the outer door is opened repeatedly. • For the replacement of UV lamp, contact Sanyo sales representative or agent. Pressing CAL key for about 5 seconds leads the calibration mode.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Automatic gas cylinder changeover This incubator is provided with an automatic cylinder changeover system, which switches the gas (N ) cylinder when one gas cylinder becomes empty. Also, an automatic CO cylinder changeover system (MCO-5GC) is available as an optional accessory. This kit switches the gas supply line when one CO gas cylinder becomes empty.
