Safety Compliance

Warning: Fiber Optic Port Safety


When using a fiber optic port, never look at the transmit laser while it is


powered on. Also, never look directly at the fiber TX port and fiber cable


ends when they are powered on.


Avertissment: Ports pour fibres optiques - sécurité sur le plan optique


Ne regardez jamais le laser tant qu'il est sous tension. Ne regardez

jamais directement le port TX (Transmission) à fibres optiques et les


embouts de câbles à fibres optiques tant qu'ils sont sous tension.


Warnhinweis: Faseroptikanschlüsse - Optische Sicherheit


Niemals ein Übertragungslaser betrachten, während dieses

eingeschaltet ist. Niemals direkt auf den Faser-TX-Anschlußund auf


die Faserkabelenden schauen, während diese eingeschaltet sind.


PSE Alarm
