    1.0 MEANING OF SAFETY SIGNAL WORDS A safety related message is identifi ed by a safety alert symbol and a signal word to indicate the level of risk involved with a particular hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.6-2006, the defi nitions of the four signal words are as follows:

    DANGER DANGER indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.

    WARNING WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

    CAUTION CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.

    NOTICE NOTICE is used to address practices not related to personal injury.

    2.0 SAFETY The operation of this monitor can be dangerous. The following must be observed at all times.

    WARNING Injury or death may occur by attempting to use a damaged monitor. Before using the monitor inspect it for damage resulting from:

    • Failure to drain monitor followed by exposure to freezing conditions • Exposure of monitor to temperatures in excess of 160 degrees F • Structural damage caused by over-pressurization • Missing parts, physical abuse, exposure to severe chemicals • Deformed or cracked fl anges damaged as a result of improper installation

    - Excessive bolt torque - Wrong tightening sequence

    WARNING Injury can result from an inadequately supported monitor. The monitor mount must be capable of supporting 1100 lbs (500 kg) of nozzle reaction force.

    WARNING The stream exiting a monitor is very powerful and capable of causing injury and property damage. Make sure the monitor is securely attached to the base and pointing in a safe direction before water to the monitor is turned on. Use care in directing the stream.

    WARNING The monitor may be damaged if frozen while containing suffi cient amounts of water. Such damage may be diffi cult to detect visually and can lead to possible injury or death. Any time the monitor is subject to possible damage from freezing, it must be hydrostatically tested by qualifi ed personnel before being considered safe for use.

    WARNING Do not connect AC voltage to this remote control device. This RC device is intended for operation from DC power supplies with voltages from 12-24 VDC. Using the wrong power source may cause electrocution or ignition resulting in serious injury or death.

    CAUTION The electric Typhoon RC may be remotely operated. The electric drives are current limited but may still produce enough force to cause injury. Keep hands and fi ngers away from pinch points on the monitor.

    CAUTION Do not use the manual override knobs while the electric controls are in operation. The electric drives produce enough torque to cause injury.

    CAUTION Operating a monitor beyond it’s maximum limits may result in injury. Always stay within the safe operating fl ow and pressure limits stated on the product.

    CAUTION On many vehicle installations, the monitor is the highest point on the apparatus. Be sure there is suffi cient clearance to safely pass under any doors or overhead obstructions. Always check parked position of the monitor before moving.

    NOTICE All replacement parts must be obtained from the manufacturer to assure proper operation of the product, and to maintain approval of the device.
