This equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference when the equipment is operated in a
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications.
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely
to cause harmful interference in which case the user will
be required to correct the interference at his own
You are cautioned that any changes or modifications not

For the customers in Europe
This product with the CE marking complies with both
the EMC Directive (89/336/EEC) and the Low Voltage
Directive (73/23/EEC) issued by the Commission of the
Compliance with these directives implies conformity to
the following European standards:
• EN60950: Product Safety
• EN55103-1: Electromagnetic Interference (Emission)
• EN55103-2: Electromagnetic Susceptibility
This product is intended for use in the following
E1 (residential), E2 (commercial and light industrial),
E3 (urban outdoors) and E4 (controlled EMC
environment, ex. TV studio).
These products are designed for operation in the
environments E1 to E4. During EMC stress, the
performance (evaluated according to ITU/R 562-3 and
ITU/R 500-4) may degrade as shown in Table 1. Without
the EMC stress, all performance will recover to full

ATTENTION – When the product is installed in a
a) Elevated operating ambient temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly,
the operating ambient temperature of the rack
environment may be greater than room ambient.
Therefore, consideration should be given to installing
the equipment in an environment compatible with the
manufacture's maximum rated ambient temperature
(Tmra: 0°C to 35°C (32°F to 95°F)).
b) Reduced air flow
Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such
that the amount of air flow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
c) Mechanical loading
Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be
such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due
to uneven mechanical loading.
d) Circuit overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of
the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that
overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate
ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
e) Reliable earthing
Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should
be maintained. Particular attention should be given to
supply connections other than direct connections to
the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips).
f) Gap keeping
Upper and lower gap of rack-mounted equipment
should be kept 44 mm (1
