@ 50 Hz for Europe
PROTECTING YOURSELF AND THE DPS16
Never touch the AC plug with wet hands.
Always disconnect the DPS16 from the power supply by pulling on the plug, not the cord.
Allow only an AKAI professional dealer or qualified professional engineer to repair or reassemble the
DPS16. Apart from voiding the warranty, unauthorized engineers might touch live internal parts and receive
a serious electrical shock.
Do not put, or allow anyone to put any object, especially metal objects, into the DPS16.
Use only a household AC power supply. Never use a DC power supply.
If water or any other liquid is spilled into or onto the DPS16, disconnect the power, and call your dealer.
Make sure that the unit is well-ventilated, and away from direct sunlight.
To avoid damage to internal circuitry, as well as the external finish, keep the DPS16 away from sources of
direct heat (stoves, radiators, etc.).
Avoid using aerosol insecticides, etc. near the DPS16. They may damage the surface, and may ignite.
Do not use denaturated alcohol, thinner or similar chemicals to clean the DPS16. They will damage the
Modification of this equipment is dangerous, and can result in the functions of the DPS16 being impaired.
Never attempt to modify the equipment in any way.
Make sure that the DPS16 is always well-supported when in use (either in a specially-designed equipment
rack, or a firm level surface).
In order to assure optimum performance of your DPS16, select the setup location carefully, and make sure
the equipment is used properly. Avoid setting up the DPS16 in the following locations:
1. In a humid or dusty environment
2. In a room with poor ventilation
3. On a surface which is not horizontal
4. Inside a vehicle such as a car, where it will be subject to vibration
5. In an extremely hot or cold environment
THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED
This equipment is fitted with an approved non-rewireable UK mains plug.
To change the fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1) Remove the fuse cover and old fuse.
2) Fit a new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp A.S.T.A or BSI approved type.
3) Refit the fuse cover.
If the AC mains plug fitted to the lead supplied with this equipment is not suitable for your type of AC outlet
sockets, it should be changed to an AC mains lead, complete with moulded plug, to the appropriate type.
If this is not possible, the plug should be cut off and a correct one fitted to suit the AC outlet. This should
be fused at 5 Amps.
If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board should NOT BE GREATER than 5 Amp.
THE SEVERED PLUG MUST BE DESTROYED TO AVOID A POSSIBLE
SHOCK HAZARD SHOULD IT BE INSERTED INTO A 13 AMP SOCKET
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
GREEN and YELLOW --EARTH
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, please proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured GREEN and YELLOW must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter E or with the safety earth symbol
or coloured GREEN or coloured GREEN and
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter
N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter
L or coloured RED.
THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED
Ensure that all the terminals are securely tightened and no loose strands of wire exist.
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain the cord grip is clamped over the outer sheath of the lead
and not simply over the wires.
Do not prevent the unit's ventilation, especially by placing the unit on the soft carpet, in a narrow space,
or by placing objects on the unit's chassis--top, side, or rear panels. Always keep the unit's chassis at least
10 centimeters from any other objects.
CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS NOT EXPRESSLY APPROVED BY THE MANUFACTURER FOR
COMPLIANCE COULD VOID THE USER'S AUTHORITY TO OPERATE THE EQUIPMENT.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can
be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from digital apparatus
set out in the Radio Interference Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.
