Using your Microshare solutions safely

  • Follow the stated battery requirements before installing any batteries.
  • Never force a connector into a port. If the connector and port don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don't match. Make sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
  • Protect Microshare sensors from direct sunlight, wherever possible.
  • Use Microshare solutions in environments according to their specification. Most products arefor indoor use only.
  • There are no user-serviceable parts inside Microshare sensors. For service personnel: Always unplug external power supply, remove batteries, and turn off UPS battery before service operation.
  • Microshare sensors may be damaged by improper storage or handling. Take care not to drop them during transport and installation.


WARNING: Do not attempt to open or disassemble any Microshare solutions. You run the risk of electric shock and voiding the limited warranty. No user-serviceable parts are inside.
