Do not use a brush on the connector label.
During cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization, orient the parts of the transducer, connector,
or cable that must remain dry higher than the wet parts until all parts are dry. This will help
keep liquid from entering unsealed areas of the transducer.
Do not allow any type of fluid to enter the connector. Ensure that fluid does not enter
through the strain relief, through the connector, through the electrical contacts, or through
the areas surrounding the locking-lever shaft and the strain relief. Fluid in the connector may
void the device warranty.
You can use an alcohol solution for disinfection on the connector only. Ensure the solution is
only 70% alcohol or less. Solutions of more than 70% alcohol can cause product damage.
Do not use any alcohol or alcohol-based products on the cable or strain relief.
