unstable surface. Danger of slippage, falling, and toppling. Install the product on a fl at, stable surface that can
withstand the weight of the product.

Do not install in a location with moisture or dust.

Risk of fi re and electrical shock.
If dust enters the machine, dirty output and machine failure may result.

Locations that are excessively hot, cold, humid, or dry
(near heaters, humidifiers, air conditioners, etc.)

The paper will become damp and condensation may form
inside the machine, causing misfeeds and dirty output.


If the location has an ultrasonic humidifi er, use pure water
for humidifi ers in the humidifi er. If tap water is used, minerals
and other impurities will be emitted, causing impurities to
collect on the inside of the machine and create dirty output.

When the machine is installed, the adjusters (4) must be lowered to the
floor to secure the machine (prevent it from moving).

Rotate the adjusters in the locking direction until they are in fi rm contact
with the fl oor.

If you find it necessary to reposition the machine due to

Locations exposed to direct sunlight

Plastic parts may become deformed and dirty output may result.

Installation notes


Locations with ammonia gas

Installing the machine next to a diazo copy machine may cause
dirty output.

Do not install the machine in a location with poor air

A small amount of ozone is created inside the machine during
printing. The amount of ozone created is not suffi cient to be
harmful; however, an unpleasant odor may be noticed during
large copy runs, and thus the machine should be installed in a
room with a ventilation fan or windows that provide suffi cient air
circulation. (The odor may occasionally cause headaches.)
* Install the machine so that people are not directly exposed to

exhaust from the machine. If installed near a window, ensure
that the machine is not exposed to direct sunlight.

Near a wall

Be sure to allow the required space around the machine for
servicing and proper ventilation. (The machine should be no
closer than the distances indicated below from walls. The
indicated distances are for the case when a saddle fi nisher and
large capacity paper tray are not installed.)

Locations subject to vibration.

Vibration may cause failure.


The machine includes a built-in hard drive. Do not subject the machine to shock or vibration. In particular, never
move the machine while the power is on.

• The machine should be installed near an accessible power outlet for easy connection.
• Connect the machine to a power outlet which is not used for other electric appliances. If a lighting fixture is

connected to the same outlet, the light may flicker.
