Safety Information 

11

Safety Information

Toner

Do not throw the toner cartridge or toner into an open flame. The hot toner may 
scatter and cause burns or other damage.

CAUTION: Keep out of reach of children.

International Notices—Power Cord 

The following power cord requirements are in effect for your 220~240 V ±10% printer.
Minimum: 0.75 mm

2

Minimum: H05 VV - F
The male plug is certified in the country in which the equipment is to be installed, and the 
female plug is an IEC 60320 connector.

International Notices—Voltage

Attention Norwegian users: This equipment is designed to operate within an IT power system 
where the line-to-line voltage does not exceed 240 V.

Ozone Release

During printer operation, a small quantity of ozone is released. This amount is not large 
enough to harm anyone adversely. However, be sure the room where the printer is being 
used has adequate ventilation, especially if you are printing a high volume of materials, or if 
the machine is being used continuously over a long period.

Laser Safety 

This printer is a page printer which operates by means of a laser. There is no possibility of danger from the 
laser, provided the printer is operated according to the instructions in this manual.
Since radiation emitted by the laser is completely confined within protective housings and external covers, 
the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase of user operation. 
This printer is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and 
Safety Act of 1968. This means that the printer does not produce hazardous laser radiation. 

Internal Laser Radiation

Maximum Average Radiant Power: 4.68 mW at the surface of the OPC drum
Wavelength: 770–795 nm
This product employs a Class IIIb Laser Diode that has an invisible laser beam. The Laser Diode and 
Scanning Polygon Mirror are incorporated in the print head unit. The print head is in the interior of the 
printer in front of the toner cartridge. The laser beam is emitted from the print head unit, and then is 
radiated through the laser aperture to the interior of the printer.

 Safety Information

12

 

The internal components of the print head unit are NOT A FIELD SERVICEABLE ITEM. Therefore, the 
print head unit should not be opened under any circumstances.

Laser Caution For United States Users—CDRH Regulations

This printer is certified as a Class I laser product under the Regulation Performance Standard according to 
the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1990. Compliance is mandatory for laser products marketed in the 
United States, and is reported to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food 
and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). This means 
that the product does not produce hazardous laser radiation. The label shown below indicates compliance 
with the CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed in the United States.

Laser Safety Label—CDRH Requirement 

CAUTION: 

Use of controls, adjustments, or performance other than those specified 

in this manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure

.

This is a semiconductor laser. The maximum power of the laser diode is 5 mW, and the wavelength is 
770–795 nm.
