Preparing to Install the Monitor
Apart from the possible danger caused by leakage currents, no other hazards are known to
result from the simultaneous use of the Monitor with other patient-connected equipment.
To ensure a completely safe electrical installation, follow the instructions described later in
"Installing the Monitor". The environment where the system will be used should be
reasonably free from vibration, dust, corrosive or explosive gases, extremes of temperature,
humidity, and so on.
Allow at least 2 inches (5cm) clearance around the Instrument for proper air circulation.
For a cabinet-mounted installation, allow sufficient room at the front for operation and
sufficient room at the rear for servicing with the cabinet access door open.
Approximately 15 minutes after switch on, the Monitor operates within specifications at the
ambient temperatures shown in the tables given in Monitor Environmental Specifications and
Measurement Server Environmental Specifications in the Specifications chapter of the User's
Ambient temperatures that exceed these limits could affect the accuracy of the Monitor and
cause damage to the components and circuits.
Make sure that during operation, the Instrument is free of condensation. Condensation can
form when equipment is moved from one building to another, thus being exposed to moisture
and differences in temperature.
Possible explosion hazard if used in the presence of flammable anaesthetics.
