Consequently, do not use the device in the immediate
vicinity of water - for example near a bath tub, a
swimming pool or in a damp cellar.
• Use the device only for the intended purpose.
• Only connect the device at a properly installed plug
socket. Pay attention that the specified voltage
corresponds to the voltage of the plug socket.
• When using external mains supply, pay attention to
the correct polarity and voltage. Always place the
batteries in the correct direction.
• Assemble the device in such a way that the available
ventilation openings are not covered.
• Never open the housing of the device. Incorrect

The lightning symbol should advise the user of
parts in the inside of the device which carry
dangerously high voltage levels.
The symbol with an exclamation mark should
advise the user of important operation or
maintenance instructions in the accompany-
ing documentation.
Devices bearing this symbol work with a „class
