For your safety

QUALIFIED SERVICE

  • Only qualified personnel may install or repair STIMPOD equipment.
  • Caution must be taken when working on high voltage sections.

BIOHAZARD

  • When the STIMPOD is received, inspection must be done to confirm the contents; this is done using latex gloves to avoid contamination.
  • Decontamination on the STIMPOD must be exercised. The entire unit should be cleaned to minimise biological risk. New and return machines shall be kept separate.
  • If biological material (such as blood) is present, the affected area should be sprayed and allowed to stand for 5 – 10 minutes to neutralise all potential contaminants. The unit is then wiped down completely with the decontamination wipes.

ACCESSORIES AND BATTERIES

Only use approved accessories. Do not connect incompatible products to the STIMPOD.

NOTE: batteries are not included in the product

There is a risk of electrical shock

 

 

ESD protection

  • Xavant Technology requires that the service points have sufficient ESD protection (electro static discharge) when servicing the STIMPOD.
  • While handling the PCB, extreme caution must be taken as all electronic parts of the product are susceptible to ESD. Resistors can also be damaged by electro static discharge.
  • All ESD sensitive parts must be packed in metallized or any anti-static bag during shipping and handling outside the ESD protected area.
  • All handling of electronic components must be done under ESD protection.
  • For more information and local requirements about ESD protection contact Xavant Technology.
