• Ground vibration monitor handling must be done with care. Do not drop, kick, hit, force, throw, submerge any Instantel monitor or its accessories.

• Keep the vibration monitor charged. Battery maintenance is an important part of vibration monitor handling. If the battery has fewer than two bars, it beeps, or a message appears telling you to charge the battery, immediately charge the battery. It is a good idea to charge the ground vibration monitor when not in use. Overcharging is not possible.

• Use only the Instantel cable supplied to connect the vibration monitor to a personal computer .

• Never connect or disconnect cables without first turning off the ground vibration monitor and your computer.

• Cleaning the monitors periodically is a good vibration monitor handling practice. Vacuum dust, dirt, and sand from Instantel’s ground vibration monitors. Use alcohol to remove stains. Do not use paint thinners and ketone solvents. These may damage the vibration monitors.
