IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse.
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the
same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted. If the cover is detachable and a replacement is required, it must be of the
same colour as the fuse fitted in the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer. If the fitted plug is not suit-
able for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain a suit-
able safety approved extension lead or consult your
dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect the
plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Never attampt to insert bare wires directly into a mains socket. A plug and fuse must be used at all times.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:–
BLUE = NEUTRAL BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows:–
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED.
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE
LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL , OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND
