10 A- oder 16 A-Sicherung abgesichert ist.
For US and Canadian users
To reduce the risk of fire, use only the included power cord or a 6
to 10 feet long UL-approved type SPT-2 or heavier, 2 x 18 AWG
cord with a 125 V 10 A plug and 125 V 7 A connector.
If your AC Adapter is equipped with a polarized alternating-current
line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other) and a

the plug properly, try reversing the plug. If this fails again, contact
an electrician to replace your outlet. Be sure to use only the
polarized AC cord which comes with the scanner.
