    PERSONNEL HAZARD WARNINGDangerous line voltages reside in certain locations in this equipment. Also,this equipment may generate dangerous voltages. Although FTCA hasincorporated every practical safety precaution, exercise extreme caution atall times when you expose circuits and components, and when you operate,maintain, or service this equipment.

    Avoid Touching Live CircuitsAvoid touching any component or any part of the circuitry while the equip-ment is operating. Do not change components or make adjustments insidethe equipment with power on.

    Dangerous Voltages Can Persist with Power DisconnectedUnder certain conditions, dangerous voltages can be present becausecapacitors can retain charges even after the power has been disconnected.

    Protect yourself always turn off the input (primary) power and wait forone minute for storage capacitors to drain their charge. Then checkbetween the red and blue wires on the TB2 terminal block with a voltmeterfor any residual charge before touching any circuit element or component.

    Do Not Depend on InterlocksNever depend on interlocks alone to remove unsafe voltages. Alwayscheck circuits with a voltmeter. Under no circumstances remove or alterany safety interlock switch.
