Safety Precautions for All Axial Fans
Do not touch the blades. Doing so may result in injury.
Always mount the optional Finger Guard when there is any possibility that a person may touch the fan blade.
Do not use the Box Fan with the Finger Guard removed.
Make sure that power is turned OFF before performing any action that requires touching the blades, such as inspections or filter replacement.
Do not hold the Fan by its power lines, or pull the power lines with excessive force. Injury may occasionally occur if the Fan falls.
Do no insert objects into the rotating parts of the Fan. Fan failure may occasionally result in property damage or minor injury.
Do not allow the Fan to be subjected to shock, such as falling, otherwise the service life and performance characteristics of the Fan will be adversely affected. Precision-type ball bearings are used to hold the shaft of the Fan.
Do not use the Fan outside the rated temperature range or above the rated voltage. The resulting increase in coil temperature or blade deformation may occasionally cause burns or other minor injuries. Do not touch the motor section during operation or immediately after stopping operation.
Do not use the Fan in locations subject to flammable or explosive gases. Minor injury may occasionally occur due to explosion.
Do not attempt to disassemble, repair, or modify the Fan. Property damage or minor injury may occasionally occur due to electric shock, fire, or Fan failure.
Unexpected operation of the Fan after, for example, the Fan has stopped due to contact failure or due to the operation of overheating protection (thermal protection), may result in minor injury.
Make sure that the power is turned OFF before performing any action that requires touching the blades, such as inspections.
Do not wire the power lines of the Fan in series with those of other Fans or devices. Wire the devices in parallel. Fan failure may occasionally result in property damage or minor injury.
Be sure to secure the Fan with the mounting bolts. Not doing so may result in injury due to the Fan falling. Use M4 bolts to mount the Fan. Recommended tightening torque: 0.44 Nm.
Provide measures, such as circuit-breaker fuses, on the power supply lines of devices that are using Axial Fans. Short-circuiting of the Fan may adversely affect other devices.
Precautions for Safe Use
Do not install the Fan in the following locations.
Locations subject directly to water (except for water-resistant Fans)
Locations subject directly to oil
Locations subject directly to vibration or shock
Locations subject to strong static electricity or harmonics
Locations subject to excessive dust or metallic powder
Locations subject to direct sunlight
Locations subject to condensation or icing
Locations subject to corrosive gases (particularly sulfide and ammonia gases)
