  • The non-operating conditions are the conditions for transport or storage of the instrument or parts of it over a short time period.
  • For transport by air, the altitude limit can be exceeded.
  • The precondition for storage and transport is that no liquids are present in any part of the system.
  • After storage at lower temperatures, it is mandatory to allow a warm-up time for the components to reach ambient temperature of approximately 20 °C (68 °F) before the instrument is powered up and starts running.
  • If the instrument is exposed to a temperature lower than -30 °C (-22 °F), clean the mechanical parts which are originally greased, such as the guide rollers, the rail or guide rod. After cleaning, re-apply the appropriate grease.


Explosion Hazard

Using the instrument in an explosive environment can lead to severe injury of personnel and damage to equipment.

Do not use the instrument in an explosive environment.

To ensure your site has the proper environmental conditions for the system:

  • Ensure that the room temperature is between 15 to 27 °C (59 to 81°F). For optimal performance, the operating temperature must be constant. See Network requirements to calculate the amount of heat your system generates and ensure your air-conditioning system can handle that amount of heat.
  • Ensure that the relative humidity in your laboratory is between 30 and 80%, with no condensation.
  • Use a temperature and humidity monitor in your laboratory.
  • Ensure that the air in your laboratory is free of excess particulate matter. The air must contain fewer than 100,000 particles (larger than 5 ppm) per cubic meter.
  • If the concentration of particles is higher than this, dust can accumulate on the electronic components of the system. This reduces their ability to cool off properly and can cause them to overheat.
  • If your environment is dusty, purchase the optional dust filter for your system.
  • Ensure that the site is free of Electro Static Discharge (ESD), which can damage the electronic components of your system. Ensure that any static charge buildup on you has been discharged before touching the internal components of the instrument. ESD can damage sensitive components, causing premature failures.
  • Take the following precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge:
    • Use a static-dissipating floor covering (such as tile or conductive linoleum) in the room with your instrument.
    • Use laboratory chairs covered with natural fibers or other static-dissipating material.
    • Wear laboratory coats and clothing made from natural fibers or other static-dissipating material.
    • Do not place polystyrene (foam) cups or packing materials on the instrument.


Toxic Material

Processing hazardous substances can cause injury or death.

Do not process any hazardous substances with the instrument.
