Protect the device against direct sunlight. the user must wait for the device to restart and then proceed for calibration.2. it is recommended that a calibration check be performed every 5 years. Protect the device during transport against heat and moisture. Routine Maintenance This instrument is a solid-state electronic device and there are no adjustable or renewable parts inside that require routine maintenance.2. When a frequency change occurs. after the first commissioning. switch off the battery by using the switch that is available on the UPS board during storage. the earlier calibration values are lost.2. If the unit has a battery. Transport the device only in its original packaging. maintain the temperature range of -30°C to +70°C and maximum humidity of 95%. Transport • • • Only the original packaging guarantees proper protection against mechanical impacts. 7.2.3. the earlier calibrated values will be lost.
