    The radiated output power of the Honeywell Thor VM3 is below the Industry Canada (IC) radio frequency exposure limits. The Honeywell Thor VM3 should be used in such a manner such that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized.
  • Page 14: Anatel (Brazil)

    Safety requirements restrict the temperature at which the Li-Ion UPS battery can be charged. Charging is disabled if the ambi- ent temperature is outside of the 0ºC to 35ºC safe charging range. In order to maintain UPS charge the Thor VM3 should have power applied while the unit is within the safe charging range for at least an hour each day.
