Safety Symbol and Message Conventions

Safety symbols and messages are used in this manual to prevent bodily injury and property damage which could result from mishandling. The conventions of the symbols and messages are described below. Before doing anything else, read this section first so you are thoroughly aware of the potential safety hazards as well as understanding the safety symbols and messages.

WARNING

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which could result in death

or serious personal injury if ignored or mishandled.

When Installing the Alarm Input Unit…

Do not expose the unit to rain or an environment where it may be splashed by water or other liquids, as doingotherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

Use the unit only with the voltage specified on the unit. Using a voltage other than that which is specified may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not cut, kink, or otherwise damage or modify the power supply cord. Also, avoid using the power cord in close proximity to heaters, and never place heavy objects, including the unit itself, on the power cord as doing otherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

Avoid installing or mounting the unit in unstable locations, such as on a rickety table or a slanted surface. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury.

Do not install the unit in close proximity to medical equipment since the electromagnetic wave from the unit may adversely affect the medical equipment.

When Using the Alarm Input Unit…

Do not place cups, bowls, or other containers of liquids or metal objects on top of the unit. If they accidentally spill into the unit, this may cause a fire or electric shock.

Do not insert foreign objects, such as metal objects and flammable materials, into the unit through the unit's ventilation slots, as this may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not touch a power supply plug during thunder and lightning, as this may result in an electric shock.

Do not open nor modify the unit's case to prevent a fire or electric shock because there are high voltage components inside the unit. Refer all inspection, adjustment and repair work to the dealer from where the unit was purchased.

Should any of the following irregularities be found during use, immediately switch off the power, disconnect the power supply cord from the AC outlet and contact your TOA dealer. Do not attempt to further use the unit because a fire or electric shock may result.

If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming from the unit.

If water or a foreign object enters the unit.

If the unit falls or the unit case breaks.

If the power supply cord is damaged (exposure of core or disconnection).

If no image is displayed.

3

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which could result in CAUTION moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage if ignored

or mishandled.

When Installing the Alarm Input Unit

Never insert nor remove the power supply plug with wet hands, as an electric shock may result.

When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the cord itself. The power supply cord may be damaged, possibly causing a fire or electric shock.

Do not block the ventilation slots in the unit's cover. Doing otherwise may cause heat to build up inside the unit, possibly causing a fire.

Avoid installing the unit in humid or dusty locations, in locations exposed to the direct sunlight, near the heaters, or in locations generating sooty smoke or steam as doing otherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

When moving the unit, be sure to remove its power supply cord from the wall outlet. Moving the unit with the power cord connected to the outlet may cause damage to the power cord, resulting in fire or electric shock.

When mounting the C-AL80 Alarm Input Unit in an equipment rack, ensure that the temperature inside the rack is lower than its maximum ambient temperature.

When Using the Alarm Input Unit

Do not place heavy objects on the unit. Such objects may fall or the unit may tip over, possibly resulting in personal injury.

Clean the inside of the unit periodically, and contact your TOA dealer regarding the cleaning. If dust is allowed to accumulate in the unit over a long period of time, a fire may result.

If dust accumulates on the power supply plug or in the wall AC outlet, a fire may result. Clean them periodically. Also, insert the plug in the wall outlet securely.

Switch off the power and unplug the power supply plug from the AC outlet for safety purposes when cleaning or leaving the unit unused for a long period of time. A fire or electric shock may result.

L version complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.

Note

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Modifications

Any modifications made to this device that are not approved by TOA Corporation may void the authority granted to the user by the FCC to operate this equipment.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Using no-voltage contact inputs, TOA's C-AL80 Alarm Input Unit activates the remote controller's alarm facilities or remotely controls the remote controller. The C-AL80 has a total of 32 alarm or remote inputs. By making master-sub connections, up to 8 C-AL80 units can be connected to each other, creating a total of 256 alarm/ remote inputs.

3. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS

Use the C-AL80 Unit in locations where the temperature fluctuates in the range of 0 – 40°C, and humidity is under 90% (no condensation must be formed).

When permanently installing the Unit, avoid blocking ventilation slots in the Unit's cover and bottom panel, and keep the Unit's front, rear, and sides at least 10 cm from the wall. Doing otherwise may cause heat to build up inside the Unit and result in the Unit's failure.
