If during operation the battery pack RB 1 (re-
chargeable battery) becomes fully discharged, the

device will continue to run or is shut down depending on the value
settings for exceeding the time and safety speed. If the device is set
so that it continues to run when the battery of the Wireless Controller

able battery):
• Keep the battery pack out of reach of children at all times.
• Store the battery pack in a cool, dry place.

products designed for use with this battery pack.

• When the battery pack is inserted it should slide in easily and with-

out resistance. Do not force it.

• If the battery pack is removed for an extended period of time, store

it in a sealed plastic bag to prevent short-circuiting due to moisture
or contact with metal components.
