Precautions for Safe Use

Check the Product for physical damage upon opening its package. It is recommended to wear gloves when opening the package.
Follow the indications listed below for a safe use of the Product.

  1. Installation Environment
    • There is potential internal deterioration and damage of internal parts of the Device. Do not use the Product in conditions exceeding the ratings for temperature and humidity.
    • Do not use the Product in an environment where condensation occurs.
    • Do not use the Product in an environment subjected to water, oil or chemicals spills.
    • Do not use the Product in an environment subjected to corrosive, combustible or explosive gas.

  • Make sure to reset the Product before using it again following a power interruption or failure.
  • Restart or reset the Device if data is received improperly.
  • Cutting or losing power to the Device while saving the Album on the flash ROM may destroy the Album data saved on it. As such, make sure to take a backup of the Album data on the Host device. Refer to the B5T-007001 Command Specifications document for details.
  • Do not use the USB and UART connection method simultaneously.
  • Do not remove the FFC connection between the main board and the camera board, and do not alter the configuration of the combination.
  • When using the USB connector, note that the bus power may not be properly powering the Device depending on the computer USB port used. In such case, use a device like a selfpowered hub with an AC adaptor.
