Safety and approvals

The instruments are developped for the use in conformity to the actual compliance, as concern the CE mark according to Directives 2006/95/CE (Low Voltage) and 2004/108/CE (EMC).  
The applicable rules, according to the model, are:  
- EN61010-1  
- EN60730-1  
- UL873 for use conforming as foreseen by Underwriters Laboratory Inc. (only for approved instruments).  
- EN61326-1  
Remarks: please make reference to the documentation and the individual certifications for details of the applicable norms.  
- The instrument must be connected to the correct supply voltage by carefully following the instructions given in the user manual.
- The connections must be made using cables of adequate rating and isolation and in compliance with the rules. The cables from the input sensors must be separated from the power supply or from power devices.
- The instrument is not equipped with a circuit breaker or fuse protection. The installation must therefore include a two-phase disconnecting switch located as close as possible to the device in a place easily accessible to the user and marked as the instrument disconnecting device. To protect the instrument and the relay contacts special protection fuses must be provided.
- To use the instrument in equipment which is expected to Class 1 installation, all accessible conductive parts must be connected to protective earth.Spikes present on the power line should not exceed 2.5 kV. Otherwise must be provided protections to limit the spike values to 2.5 kV.
- The instrument must be installed inside a container to prevent accidental contact of parts under dangerous voltage or the introduction of conductive substances or condensation. In the same container must not be placed devices that may generate excessive heat. Inside the container must be ensured an adequate ventilation to the instrument.
- The measurement input, the analog output or the SSR drive are not optically isolated from each other and from the power supply.
- The installer must ensure that EMC rules are respected, also after the installation of the instrument, if necessary using proper filters.
- The user must ensure that the parameters are correctly programmed and that the application functions correctly in order to avoid to people or property damages.
- The instrument should not be used in environments with dangerous atmosphere (flammable/explosive).
- Using the instrument for applications not expressly provided for by the rules above must adopt the appropriate protective measures.

ASCON TECNOLOGIC and its legal representatives do not assume any responsibility for any damage to people, things or animals deriving from violation, wrong or improper use or in any case not in compliance with the instrument’s features.

 and the related national legislation, please note that:

a) WEEE cannot be disposed of as municipal waste and such waste must be collected and disposed of separately;
b) the public or private waste collection systems defined by local legislation must be used. In addition, the equipment can be returned to the distributor at the end of its working life when buying new equipment;
c) the equipment may contain hazardous substances: the improper use or incorrect disposal of such may have negative effects on human health and on the environment;
d) the symbol (crossed-out wheeled bin) shown on the product or on the packaging and on the instruction sheet indicates that the equipment has been introduced onto the market after 13 August 2005 and that it must be disposed of separately;
e) in the event of illegal disposal of electrical and electronic waste, the penalties are specified by local waste disposal legislation.
