20 Care and Cleaning

Cleaning the Monitor

Clean with a lint-free cloth, moistened with warm water (40°C/104°F maximum) and soap, a diluted
non-caustic detergent, tenside, ammonia- or alcohol-based cleaning agent. Do not use strong solvents
such as acetone or trichloroethylene.
Take extra care when cleaning the screen of the monitor because it is more sensitive to rough cleaning
methods than the housing. Do not permit any liquid to enter the monitor case and avoid pouring it on
the monitor while cleaning. Do not allow water or cleaning solution to enter the measurement
connectors. Wipe around, not over, connector sockets.
To clean the touch-enabled display, disable the touch operation by switching off the monitor during
the cleaning procedure, or by pressing and holding the Main Screen key for two seconds. Press the
Main Screen key again to re-enable touch operation.

Tensides (dishwasher detergents)
