P/N: 55P5776 Preface You will need a converter box if you are using an IBM T221 Flat Panel Monitor connected to a computer fitted with a graphics card that supports the DVI Dual Link interface. If your graphics card is not a dual-link type, do not use a converter box.
Precautions for using the converter box safely and correctly DANGER To avoid electrical shock: Never remove the cover of the converter box. Never connect or disconnect the converter box during an electrical storm. Any equipment to which the converter box is attached must also be connected to properly wired and grounded electrical outlets.
DANGER Sequence for connecting and disconnecting cables Electric current from the power cords and communication cables is hazardous. To avoid any risk of electrical shock, always connect and disconnect the cables as shown below when installing or moving the converter box or connected equipment, or when connecting other equipment.
1.1. Required System Configuration To use the converter box with an IBM T221 Flat Panel Monitor, you must have a computer fitted with a DVI-compliant graphics card that supports the DVI Dual Link interface.
