Do not use solvents, such as thinner or acetone, or abrasive cleaners on the system,
transducers, or any hardcopy device.
For optimal performance, connect your ultrasound system to a circuit dedicated solely for the
system. Do not connect life-support devices to the same circuit as the ultrasound system.
If systems, transducers, and peripherals have been in an environment below 10°C (50°F),
allow them to reach room temperature before connecting or turning them on. Philips
recommends allowing 24 hours for complete normalization. Otherwise, condensation inside
the devices could cause damage. If the device was only briefly exposed to temperatures
below 10°C (50°F), then the time required for the device to return to room temperature could
be significantly less than 24 hours.
To avoid damaging the flat-panel display in the monitor, do not store the system where the
ambient temperature exceeds 65°C (149°F).
Do not use your system in combination with other products or components, unless Philips
expressly recognizes those other products or components as compatible. For information about
such products and components, contact your Philips representative.
Changes and additions to the system should be made only by Philips or by third parties
expressly authorized by Philips to do so. Such changes and additions must comply with all
applicable laws and regulations that have the force of law within the jurisdictions concerned,
and best engineering practices.
