WARNING DELICATE ELECTRICS / ELECTRONICS
Beware of STATIC ELECTRICITY on HANDS & TOOLS
HANDLE ALL ITEMS WITH EXTREME CARE
DCC, ELECTRICAL and ELECTRONIC COMPONENT HANDLING
These COMPONENTS contain delicate electrics / electronic components. Please read the installation instructions very carefully – Several times.
If in any doubt please contact your Local Electronics Expert.
Ensure that you use the correct power supply.
Incorrect installation will cause instant failure and possible short-circuiting.
DELICATE AND THIN WIRES
SOME WIRES ARE VERY DELICATE AND ARE FINE BEING COATED WITH INSULATION THAT WILL CRACK AND FRACTURE IF BENT, TWISTED OR MISHANDLED IN ANY WAY - THIS WILL CAUSE A SHORT CIRCUIT & PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE PRODUCT AND OTHER ITEMS WITHIN THE CIRCUIT. ANY COILED WIRES MUST BE UNCOILED VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLATION TO AVOID DAMEGE TO THE INSULATION – PULLING WILL CAUSE TWISTING AND FRACUTUE. DO NOT USE ANY METAL OBJECT TO UNCOIL THE FINE WIRES!!!!
Static electricity refers to the build up of electric charge on the surface of objects. The static charges remain on an object until they either bleed off to ground or are quickly neutralized by a discharge.
Although charge exchange can happen whenever any two surfaces come into contact and separate, a static charge will only remain when at least one of the surfaces has a high resistance to electrical flow (an electrical insulator).
The effects of static electricity are familiar to most people because we can see, feel and even hear the spark as the excess charge is neutralized when brought close to a large electrical conductor (for example a path to ground), or a region with an excess charge of the opposite polarity (positive or negative). The familiar phenomenon of a static 'shock' is caused by the neutralization of charge.
Static electricity can reside in people, clothing or tools etc.
The static electricity must be discharged to EARTH before handling any delicate electronic components or computer components.
Use of Magnetic tools OR METAL OBJECTS should be avoided at all times.
