1. Grounding or Polarization
(A)Your product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-
current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other).
This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a
safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
(B)Your product may be equipped with a 3-wire grounding-type
plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit
into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
2. Power Sources
Operate your product only from the type of power source indicated
on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power
company. If your product is intended to operate from battery power,
or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
3. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
4. Power Cord Protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to
be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them,
paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
5. Ventilation
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To
ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from
overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered.
Do not block the openings by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug
or other similar surface.

or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s
instructions have been adhered to.

The product should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as
recommended by the manufacturer.


1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product,
be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide
some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast
and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
2. Lightning
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or
when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning
and power-line surges.
3. Power Lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of
overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or
where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing
an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep
from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them
might be fatal.
