The following general safety precautions must be observed during all phases of operation, service, and repair of this
instrument. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in this manual violates safety
standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of the instrument. Agilent Technologies Company assumes no liability
for the customer's failure to comply with these requirements.
BEFORE APPLYING POWER.
Verify that the product is set to match the available line voltage and the correct fuse is installed.
GROUND THE INSTRUMENT.
This product is a Safety Class 1 instrument (provided with a protective earth terminal). To minimize shock hazard, the instrument chassis
and cabinet must be connected to an electrical ground. The instrument must be connected to the ac power supply mains through a three-
conductor power cable, with the third wire firmly connected to an electrical ground (safety ground) at the power outlet. For instruments
designed to be hard-wired to the ac power lines (supply mains), connect the protective earth terminal to a protective conductor before any
other connection is made. Any interruption of the protective (grounding) conductor or disconnection of the protective earth terminal will
cause a potential shock hazard that could result in personal injury. If the instrument is to be energized via an external autotransformer for
voltage reduction, be certain that the autotransformer common terminal is connected to the neutral (earthed pole) of the ac power lines
Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and specified type (normal blow, time delay, etc.) should be used. Do not use repaired
fuses or short circuited fuseholders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
DO NOT OPERATE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gases or fumes.
KEEP AWAY FROM LIVE CIRCUITS.
Operating personnel must not remove instrument covers. Component replacement and internal adjustments must be made by qualified
service personnel. Do not replace components with power cable connected. Under certain conditions, dangerous voltages may exist even
with the power cable
