Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions

When using this machine, follow the normal safety precautions for all office equipment:

Keep loose clothing, jewelry and long hair away from all moving parts.

Avoid touching moving parts or materials while the machine is in use. When clearing a jam, be sure machine mechanisms come to a stop before you open the front cover.

Be certain that the area in front of the wall outlet that this machine is plugged into is free from obstruction.

To reduce the risk of fire and/or electrical shock, do not attempt to disassemble this machine. If service is required, contact your Pitney Bowes Customer Service Representative.

The power cord wall plug is the primary means of disconnecting the machine from the AC power. The wall outlet should be near the machine and easily accessible.

To protect against shock, the power cord should only be plugged into a grounded wall outlet. The ground pin on the plug should never be removed.

To prevent overheating, do not cover vent openings.

All areas of the machine requiring disassembly or removal of covers should be accessed only by your Pitney Bowes Customer Service Representative.

Do not remove covers. This machine cabinet serves to enclose hazardous parts. If the machine has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged in any way, notify your Pitney Bowes Cus-

tomer Service Representative.

Read all instructions before attempting to operate this equipment.

Use this equipment only for its intended purpose.

In addition, follow any specific occupational safety and health standards for your workplace or area.

About Your Mailing Machine

Your mailing system consists of two components that work together - the Pitney Bowes mailing machine and a Pitney Bowes postage meter. The mailing machine has a multi-thickness feeder.

Mailing Machine

Controls the operation of the mailing system.

Transports envelopes of various thicknesses.

Gives you options for printing postage only, printing postage and sealing the envelope, sealing only, or printing a postage tape.

Postage Meter

Installed on the mailing machine.

Provides the postage value selection and imprinting.

Every country has its own regulations regarding the use of postage meters. To find out about the regulations which apply to your postage meter, check with the post office in your country.

Most countries operate the “Credit Locking” system whereby postage credit is entered in the postage meter either at the post office or remotely over a telephone line (Postage-by-Phone® meter resetting system). These “Credit Locking” meters cease to operate when the value in the postage unused (descending) register falls below a preset value, depending on the meter being used.

Although this guide primarily covers the use of the mailing machine, it also refers to the postage meter. Since several different Pitney Bowes postage meters work with the mailing machine, the postage meter you have may be different from the one pictured in this guide. However, the general purpose and functionality of postage meters are similar.

For specific information on your postage meter, see the operating guide provided with the meter or call your local Pitney Bowes office or dealer.
