exposure to these adverse conditions may cause fire or expose you to electric shock.

• Temperature range: 50


F -95


F (10


C -35



At high temperatures (95


F /35


C), humidity should be at or below 70%.

• Humidity range: 15%-85% (no condensation)

At maximum humidity (85%), temperature should be at or below 82





Stop operation immediately if your printer produces smoke, excessive heat, unusual noise, or
smell. These conditions can indicate or result in a fire. Immediately switch off and unplug the
printer, and contact your point of purchase.

This product conforms the following safety standards:


CSA C22.2 No. 950

EN 60950

Class 1 Laser Device and CDRH Compliance

This printer is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for
Health and Safety Act of 1968. This certification indicates that the printer does not emit hazardous
laser radiation. Since radiation emitted inside the printer is completely confined within the protec-
tive housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase
of user operation.

The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administra-
tion implemented regulations for laser products on August 1976. These regulations apply to laser
products marketed in the United States. The label on the printer indicates compliance with the
CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed in the United States.
