No part of this document may be copied, reproduced or transmitted by any means for any purpose without prior written permission from VINC. FCC INFORMATION This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of 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 the interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause unacceptable 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 equipment and receiver; or connect the into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. FCC WARNING To assure continued FCC compliance, the user must use a grounded power supply cord and the provided shielded video interface cable with bonded ferrite cores. Also, any unauthorized changes or modifications to Amtrak products will void the user’s authority to operate this device. Thus VINC Will not be held responsible for the product and its safety. CE CERTIFICATION This device complies with the requirements of the EEC directive 89/336/EEC with regard to “Electromagnetic compatibility.” SAFETY CAUTION Use a power cable that is properly grounded. Always use the AC cords as follows – USA (UL); Canada (CSA); Germany (VDE); Switzerland (SEV); Britain (BASEC/BS); Japan (Electric Appliance Control Act); or an AC cord that meets the local safety standards.

(4) You should adopt radiation structure to satisfy the temperature specification.14. (5) Acetic acid type and chlorine type materials for the cover case are not desirable because the former generates corrosive gas of attacking the polarizer at high temperature and the latter causes circuit break by electro-chemical reaction.

CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT COPY Page 2-3 File No. 9-2.) (3) Brightness depends on the temperature. System manufacturers shall do sufficient suppression to the electromagnetic interference. please wipe gently with absorbent cotton or other soft materials like chamois soaks with petroleum benzene. Normal-hexane is recommended for cleaning the adhesives used to attach front / rear polarizers. remnant image is likely to occur.) (7) When the surface becomes dusty. And please do not rub with dust clothes with chemical treatment. (8) Wipe off saliva or water drops as soon as possible. push or rub the exposed polarizes with glass. smear or spot will occur. (5) When fixed patterns are displayed for a long time. it becomes lower. response time (required time that brightness is stable after turned on) becomes longer.(Some cosmetics are detrimental to the polarizer.(6) Do not touch. OPERATING PRECAUTIONS (1) The spike noise causes the mis-operation of circuits. (4) Be careful for condensation at sudden temperature change. Grounding and shielding methods may be important to minimize the interference. toluene and alcohol because they cause chemical damage to the polarizer. (9) Do not open the case because inside circuits do not have sufficient strength. Do not use acetone. SG-0211 . it becomes longer. (6) Module has high frequency circuits. Do not touch the surface of polarizer for bare hand or greasy cloth. tweezers or anything harder than HB pencil lead. Condensation makes damage to polarizer or electrical contacted parts. Their long time contact with polarizer causes deformations and color fading. (In lower temperature.)And in lower temperature.

This should be peeled off slowly and carefully by people who are electrically grounded and with well ion-blown equipment or in such a condition. CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT COPY Page 2-4 File No. SG-0211 . (2) When the module with protection film attached is stored for a long time. etc. sometimes there remains a very small amount of glue still on the bezel after the protection film is peeled off.9-3. When the protection film is peeled off. please wipe them off with absorbent cotton waste or other soft material like chamois soaked with normal-hexane. (3) You can remove the glue easily. When the glue remains on the bezel surface or its vestige is recognized. static electricity is generated between the film and polarizer. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS FOR PROTECTION (1) The protection film is attached to the bezel with a small masking tape.
