Equipment with casters is built to move on a smooth surface without any obstacles.

Do not use a ramp inclined at more than 10° .

This equipment is intended for installation in a temperature-controlledindoor area (seeSpecifications in the SYMMETRA RM OPERATION MANUAL), free of conductive contaminants.

Electrical Safety

Do not work alone under hazardous conditions.

High short circuit current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.

A licensed electrician is required to install permanently wired equipment.

Check that the power cord(s), plug(s), and sockets are in good condition.

To reduce the risk of electric shock when grounding cannot be verified, disconnect the equipment from the AC power outlet before installing or connecting to other equipment. Reconnect the power cord only after all connections are made.

Do not handle any kind of metallic connector before the power has been removed.

An insulated grounding conductor that is identical in size, insulation material, and thickness to the grounded and ungrounded branch-circuitsupply conductors, except that it is green with or without a yellow stripe is to be installed as part of the branch circuit that supplies the Symmetra.

The grounding conductor described above is to be grounded to earth at the service equipment, or if supplied by a separately derived system, at the supply transformer or motor-generatorset.

The attachment-plugreceptacles in the vicinity of the unit or subsystem are all to be of a grounding type, and the grounding conductors serving these receptacles are to be connected to earth ground at the service equipment.

Deenergizing Safety

To remove all power from the Symmetra RM (Total Power Off), the following series of events must occur in the order listed:

1.Set the system enable switch to stand by .

2.Set the input circuit breaker to stand by .

3.Remove the battery modules.

4.Disconnect the external battery pack (if provided).

5.Disconnect the Symmetra RM from the mains/circuit branch.

Use of this equipment in life support applications where failure of this equipment can reasonably be expected to cause the failure of the life support equipment or to significantly effect its safety or effectiveness is not recommended.

Battery Safety

Risk of electrical shock and and energy hazard (120 V, 5ampere-hourbattery). Before replacing batteries, remove conductive jewelry such as chains, wrist watches, and rings. High short circuit current through conductive materials could cause severe burns.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.

Do not open or mutilate batteries. They contain electrolyte that is toxic and harmful to the skin and eyes.

Batteries must be recycled. Deliver the battery to an appropriate recycling facility or ship it to the supplier in the new battery’s packing material. See the new battery instructions for more information.
