Description

To ensure the safe operation of this scanner, be sure to read the safety warnings and precautions described below.

Solution

Installation Location

The performance of this scanner is affected by the environment in which it is installed. Make sure that the location where the scanner is installed meets the following environmental requirements.
  • Provide adequate space around the scanner for operation, maintenance, and ventilation.
  • When scanning documents using the straight path, provide adequate space in back of the scanner for scanned document output.
  • Avoid installing the machine in direct sunlight. If this is unavoidable, use curtains to shade the scanner.
  • Avoid locations where a considerable amount of dust accumulates as dust may adversely affect the inside of the scanner.
  • Avoid warm or humid locations, such as in the vicinity of a water faucet, water heater, or humidifier. Avoid locations where ammonia gas is emitted. Avoid locations near volatile or flammable materials, such as alcohol or paint thinner.
  • Avoid locations that are subject to vibration.
  • Avoid exposing the scanner to rapid changes in temperature. If the room in which the scanner is installed is cold but rapidly heated, water droplets (condensation) may form inside the scanner. This may result in a noticeable degradation in scanning quality. the following conditions are recommended for optimal scanning quality:
    Room temperature: 10 oC to 32.5 oC (50 oF to 90.5 oF)
    Humidity: 20% to 80% RH
  • Avoid installing the scanner near equipment that generates a magnetic field (e.g. speakers, televisions, or radios.)


AC Adapter

  • Connect only to a power outlet of the rated voltage and power supply frequency (120 V, 60 Hz or 220-240 V, 50/60 Hz depending on your region).
  • Do not connect other electrical equipment to the same power outlet to which the scanner is connected. Also, when using an extension cord, make sure that the extension cord is rated for the current requirements of the scanner.
  • Never try to take the AC adapter apart or modify it in any way, as this is dangerous.
  • The power cord may become damaged if it is often stepped on or if heavy objects are placed on it.
  • Do not use the power cord while it is coiled.
  • Do not pull directly on the power cord. When disconnecting the power cord, grasp the plug and remove it from the outlet.
  • Keep the area around the power cord clear of objects so that the power cord can be disconnected easily in an emergency.
  • Do not use an AC adapter other than the one provided with the scanner with other products.


Moving the Scanner

  • When moving the scanner, always hold it with both hands to avoid dropping it. 
  • Make sure to disconnect the interface cable and AC adapter before moving the scanner. If the scanner is transported with these items connected, the plugs and connections may be damaged.

Handling
 
WARNING

Note the following precautions whenever using the scanner. Failure to do so may result in a fire or electric shock.

  • Never use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, aerosol sprays, or any other highly flammable substance near the scanner.
  • Do not cut, damage, or modify the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on the power cord, and do not pull or excessively bend the power cord.
  • Never connect the power cord when your hands are wet.
  • Do not connect the scanner to a multi plug power strip.
  • Do not knot or coil the power cord as this may result in a fire or electric shock. When connecting the power cord, make sure that the power plug is securely and completely inserted into the power outlet.
  • The supplied power cord set is intended for use with this scanner only. Do not use it with other electronic equipment. In addition, do not use power cord sets other than the one supplied with the scanner. Doing so may result in fire or electric shock.
  • Do not take the scanner apart or modify it.
  • Never try to take the AC adapter apart or modify it in any way, as this is dangerous.
  • Do not use flammable spray near the scanner.
  • When cleaning the scanner, push the power button to turn it OFF and disconnect the power cord from the power supply.
  • Clean the scanner using slightly dampened cloth which has been well wrung out. Never use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or any other flammable substances.
  • If the scanner makes strange noises, or gives off smoke, heat, or strange odors, or the scanner does not function or other abnormalities occur when you use the machine, immediately push the power button to turn it off, and disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
  • Do not drop the scanner, or subject it to impact or strong shock. Should the scanner ever become damaged, immediately push the power button to turn it OFF, and disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
  • Before moving the scanner, be sure to push the power button to turn it OFF, and disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
  • To customers with cardiac pacemakers
    The scanner generates a weak magnetic field. If customers using cardiac pacemakers experience any abnormalities, move away from the scanner and consult a physician.
     CAUTION
  • Do not install the scanner on a surface that is unstable or tilted, or in an area subject to excessive vibrations, as this may cause the scanner to fall, resulting in personal injury or damage to the scanner.
  • Never place small metal objects such as staples, paper clips, or jewelry on the scanner. These items may fall into the scanner, and cause a fire or electric shock. should such objects ever fall inside the scanner, immediately push the power button to turn it OFF, and disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
  • Do not install the scanner in a humid or dusty location. Dong so might cause a fire or electric shock.
  • Do not place objects on top of the scanner. Such objects may tip or fall over, resulting in personal injury.
  • Connect only to a power outlet of the rated voltage and power frequency (120 V, 60 Hz or 220-240 V, 50/60 Hz depending on your region). Doing so might cause a fire or electric shock.
  • When unplugging the power cord, grasp it firmly by its plug. Do not pull directly on the power cord, as this may damage or expose the cord's internal wiring, resulting in a fire or electric shock.
  • Leave sufficient space around the power plug so that it can be unplugged easily. If objects are placed around the power plug, you will be unable to unplug it in an emergency.
  • Do not allow water or flammable substances (alcohol, paint thinner, benzene, etc.) to spill into the scanner, as this may result in a fire or electric shock. Doing so might cause a fire or electric shock.
  • Push the power button to turn the scanner OFF for safety when not using the scanner for a long period of time, such as overnight. Also, push the power button to turn it OFF, and disconnect the power cord from the power outlet for safety when the machine will not be used for an extended period of time, such as during consecutive holidays.
  • Do not block the ventilation holes. Doing so might cause overheating.
  • Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that may get caught in the scanner while you are using it, as this may result in personal injury. Be extra careful of neckties and long hair. If anything becomes caught in the scanner, immediately disconnect the power cord to stop the scanner.
  • Be careful when loading paper into the scanner and when removing jammed paper, as it is possible to cut your hand on the edge of a sheet of paper.
