Protecting Operating Processes
A failure of this device – for whatever reason -- may leave an operating process without appropriate protection and could result
in possible damage to property or injury to persons. To protect against this, you should review the need for additional backup
equipment or provide alternate means of protection (such as alarm devices, output limiting, fail-safe valves, relief valves,
emergency shutoffs, emergency switches, etc.). Contact Remote Automation Solutions for additional information.
If you need to return any equipment to Remote Automation Solutions, it is your responsibility to ensure that the equipment
has been cleaned to safe levels, as defined and/or determined by applicable federal, state and/or local law regulations or
codes. You also agree to indemnify Remote Automation Solutions and hold Remote Automation Solutions harmless from any
liability or damage which Remote Automation Solutions may incur or suffer due to your failure to ensure device cleanliness.
