Electrical equipment contains hazardous voltages and high
speed moving parts. Contact with these hazards will cause
death, serious personal injury or damage equipment.
Only qualified personnel shall install, operate and maintain this
equipment. Always properly ground equipment and lock out
electric power (de-energize) before maintenance. Using non-
specified/unauthorized parts or components to repair equip-
ment, or tampering with safety devices/systems will result in
dangerous conditions which can cause death, severe personal
injury or damage to equipment. Take note of and follow all safety
instructions contained in this installation, operation and mainte-
nance manual.

IMPORTANT
These installation, operation and maintenance instructions do not claim to cover all details or variations in
equipment. Nor do they provide for all possible conditions encountered while installing, operating or maintaining
this equipment. If further information is desired or needed to address any particular installation, operation or
maintenance problem not covered in this document, contact your authorized factory representative.
The information in this document does not relieve the user from exercising good judgment in selecting equip-
ment for suitability of application. Nor does it relieve the user from using sound practices in installation, operation
and maintenance of the equipment purchased.
