General information

  • Electric devices should not be kept in proximity of splashing water.
  • Defects on cables, plugs and devices should be repaired immediately by a professional.
  • Protective devices should not be bypassed or modified.
  • Devices which for some reason cannot be grounded should be connected to an isolating transformer, or protected by a fault current circuit breaker.
  • Before any intervention on the device, unplug the power cable. Beware of capacitors, which can retain their charge for a long time.
