User Responsibility

Respect all local regulations for operating your wireless device. Use the security features to block unauthorized use and theft.

Device Maintenance

When maintaining your device:

  • Do not attempt to disassemble the device. There are no user serviceable parts inside.
  • Do not misuse the device. Follow instructions on proper operation and only use as intended. Misuse could make the device inoperable, damage the device and/or other equipment, or harm users.
  • Do not apply excessive pressure or place unnecessary weight on the device. This could result in damage to the device or harm to users .
  • Do not use this device in explosive or hazardous environments unless the model is specifically approved for such use. The device may cause sparks. Sparks in explosive areas could cause explosion or fire and may result in property damage, severe injury, and/or death.
  • Do not expose your device to any extreme environment where the temperature or humidity is high. Such exposure could result in damage to the device or fire.
  • Do not expose the device to water, rain, or spilled beverages. It is not waterproof. Exposure to liquids could result in damage to the device.
  • Do not place the device alongside computer discs, credit or travel cards, or other magnetic media. The

    information contained on discs or cards may be affected by the device.

  • Using accessories, such as antennas, that MultiTech has not authorized or that are not compliant with

    MultiTech’s accessory specifications may invalidate the warranty.

If the device is not working properly, contact MultiTech Technical Support.

Vehicle Safety

When using your device in a vehicle:

  • Do not use this device while driving.
  • Respect national regulations on the use of cellular devices in vehicles.
  • If incorrectly installed in a vehicle, operating the wireless device could interfere with the vehicle’s electronics. To avoid such problems, use qualified personnel to install the device. The installer should verify the vehicle electronics are protected from interference.
  • Using an alert device to operate a vehicle’s lights or horn is not permitted on public roads.
  • UL evaluated this device for use in ordinary locations only. UL did NOT evaluate this device for installation in a vehicle or other outdoor locations. UL Certification does not apply or extend to use vehicles or outdoor applications.

Notice regarding Compliance with FCC, EU, and Industry Canada Requirements for RF Exposure

The antenna intended for use with this unit meets the requirements for mobile operating configurations and for fixed mounted operations, as defined in 2.1091 of the FCC rules for satisfying RF exposure compliance. This device also meets the European RF exposure requirements of EN 62311. If an alternate antenna is used, consult user documentation for required antenna specifications.

Compliance of the device with the FCC, EU and IC rules regarding RF Exposure was established and is given with the maximum antenna gain as specified above for a minimum distance of 20 cm between the devices radiating structures (the antenna) and the body of users. Qualification for distances closer than 20 cm (portable operation) would require re-certification.

Wireless devices could generate radiation. Other nearby electronic devices, like microwave ovens, may also generate additional radiation to the user causing a higher level of RF exposure.

Radio Frequency (RF) Safety

Due to the possibility of radio frequency (RF) interference, it is important that you follow any special regulations regarding the use of radio equipment. Follow the safety advice given below.

  • Operating your device close to other electronic equipment may cause interference if the equipment is inadequately protected. Observe any warning signs and manufacturers’ recommendations.
  • Different industries and businesses restrict the use of cellular devices. Respect restrictions on the use of radio equipment in fuel depots, chemical plants, or where blasting operations are in process. Follow restrictions for any environment where you operate the device.
  • Do not place the antenna outdoors.
  • Switch OFF your wireless device when in an aircraft. Using portable electronic devices in an aircraft may

    endanger aircraft operation, disrupt the cellular network, and is illegal. Failing to observe this restriction

    may lead to suspension or denial of cellular services to the offender, legal action, or both.

  • Switch OFF your wireless device when around gasoline or diesel-fuel pumps and before filling your vehicle

    with fuel.

  • Switch OFF your wireless device in hospitals and any other place where medical equipment may be in use.

Interference with Pacemakers and Other Medical Devices Potential interference

Radio frequency energy (RF) from cellular devices can interact with some electronic devices. This is electromagnetic interference (EMI). The FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure EMI of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from cellular devices. This test method is part of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) standard. This standard allows manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from cellular device EMI.

The FDA continues to monitor cellular devices for interactions with other medical devices. If harmful interference occurs, the FDA will assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.

Precautions for pacemaker wearers

If EMI occurs, it could affect a pacemaker in one of three ways:

  • Stop the pacemaker from delivering the stimulating pulses that regulate the heart’s rhythm.
  • Cause the pacemaker to deliver the pulses irregularly.
  • Cause the pacemaker to ignore the heart’s own rhythm and deliver pulses at a fixed rate.

Based on current research, cellular devices do not pose a significant health problem for most pacemaker wearers. However, people with pacemakers may want to take simple precautions to be sure that their device doesn’t cause a problem.

  • Keep the device on the opposite side of the body from the pacemaker to add extra distance between the pacemaker and the device.
  • Avoid placing a turned-on device next to the pacemaker (for example, don’t carry the device in a shirt or jacket pocket directly over the pacemaker).
