Wireless RF Option:

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

 

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

NOTE:Tests have shown that because of the sensitive nature of the measurement and logic circuits, the following precautions must be observed:

Minimize exposure to ESD Events. If the M.O.L.E. Profiler or one of the thermocouples receives an 8kV electrostatic discharge during the data collection sequence, the M.O.L.E. Profiler may switch itself “OFF”. To retrieve the data, simply upload the data that was recorded prior to the event. If a new data collection sequence is started without uploading first, the existing data stored in the M.O.L.E. Profiler will be lost.

Keep strong electromagnetic fields away. The thermocouple wires serve as an antenna for electromagnetic radiation. If field strength of 3 volts per meter is present (usually due to close proximity of radio transmitters) while the M.O.L.E. Profiler is collecting data, the accuracy of the data may be compromised. This interference is compounded by using long thermocouple wires, as well as the effect of the thermocouple wires acting as a “tuned” antenna.
