Battery and adapter information
Accessing the power
Be sure that the power outlet you plug into is easily accessible and
located as close to the equipment operator as possible. When you
need to disconnect power to the equipment, be sure to unplug from
the electrical outlet.
Disconnecting the power source
Observe the following guidelines when connecting and disconnecting
power to the power supply unit:
Install the power supply unit before connecting to the AC power outlet.
Unplug before removing the power supply unit from the computer.
If the system has multiple sources of power, disconnect power from
the system by unplugging all power cords from the power supplies.
Using electrical power
• Do not connect the adapter to any other device.
• When unplugging the power cord, do not pull on the cord itself but
pull on the plug.
• This product should be operated from the type of power indicated on
the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power available,
consult your dealer or local power company.
• Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not locate this
product where people will walk on the cord.
• If an extension cord is used with this product, make sure that the
total ampere rating of the equipment plugged into the extension cord
does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating. Also, make sure
that the total rating of all products plugged into the wall outlet does
not exceed the fuse rating.
• Do not overload a power outlet, strip or receptacle by plugging in too
many devices. The overall system load must not exceed 80% of the
branch circuit rating. If power strips are used, the load should not
exceed 80% of the power strip's input rating.
