3.1 Installation environment
The plasma display and special metal fixture must be installed after careful discussion with the building owner and
manager of the building. Never undertake installation without careful consideration of the consequences. In addition,
contact the contractor responsible for building construction and interior structure design and confirm the structure and
safety of the building.
: Safety precautions
1) Structure of installation site
Be sure to use an appropriate installation method, after fully understanding the structure of the installation site.
There are many types of building structures and materials, and appropriate installation methods will vary accordingly.
When using a special metal mounting fixture, consult your dealer or the maker of the fixture.
Before drilling holes, always consider the location of wiring and piping within the building.
2) Load resistance of the installation site
Select an installation site capable of supporting the combined weight of the metal fixture and display.
"Sufficient strength to withstand" means sufficient strength to withstand a weight four times that of the
main body including the metal fixture.
3) Horizontal plane
Select a level, sturdy, installation site with sufficient load-bearing capacity.
When using suspension bolts, take care to distribute load evenly on the ceiling on the floor of the installation site.
4) Securing installation space
Select an installation site with adequate space for working. This work requires two or more people.
Remember to leave adequate space for future maintenance.
5) Peripheral equipment
Installation sites close to air conditioner outlets or light bulbs may be unsuitable due to potential damage from
dust, temperature, humidity, or condensation.
6) Dangerous location sites
Do not install the display at locations where it may be leaned against or grasped. Similarly, avoid installing at sites
subject to excessive vibration or physical shock.
• For more visible display, avoid installation in very bright locations. Before choosing the location site and
method,carefully consider the location of lighting fixtures and direction and strength of sunlight.
• In bright locations, images may appear dark even if the luminance is increased. Adjusting picture brightness to
excessively high levels to compensate for extremely bright ambient lighting may reduce the service life of the
8) Semi-outdoor installation
This machine is designed for indoor use. Installed semi-outdoors, the display will be subject to problems resulting
involving the following factors:
• Water, dust, etc.
• Changing temperature and humidity
• Air-borne salt
To ensure that pictures appear normal, avoid installation in locations subject to direct sunlight.
