.1 Safety warnings
WARNING: Before installing the projector, read first the safety instructions in the safety manual (R5975258)
delivered with the projector.
Insure that the projector is installed in an easy to evacuate room in case of a lamp explosion.
Mercury Vapor Warnings
Keep the following warnings in mind when using the projector. The lamp used in the projector contains mercury. In case of a lamp
rupture, explosion there will be a mercury vapor emission. In order to minimize the potential risk of inhaling mercury vapors:
Ensure the projector is installed only in ventilated rooms.
Replace the lamp module before the end of its operational life.
Promptly ventilate the room after a lamp rupture, explosion has occurred, evacuate the room (particularly in case of a pregnant
Seek medical attention if unusual health conditions occur after a lamp rupture, explosion, such as headache, fatigue, shortness
of breath, chest-tightening coughing or nausea.
.2 Installation guidelines
Ambient temperature check
Careful consideration of things such as image size, ambient light level, projector placement and type of screen to use are critical to
the optimum use of the projection system.
Max. ambient temperature : 40 °C or 104 °F
Min. ambient temperature : 0 °C or 32 °F
The projector will not operate if ambient air temperature falls outside this range (0°C- 40°C or 32°F-104°F).
Do not install the projection system in a site near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust or humidity. Be aware that room heat rises to the ceiling; check that temperature near the installation site is not
CAUTION: Harmful Environmental Contamination Precaution
Environment condition check
A projector must always be mounted in a manner which ensures the free flow of clean air into the projectors ventilation inlets as well
as free flow at the ventilation outlets. The installation must also allow easy access to the consumable parts ( dustfilters, lamps, ...)
For installations in environments where the projector is subject to airborne contaminants such as that produced by smoke machines
or similar (these deposit a thin layer of greasy residue upon the projectors internal optics and imaging electronic surfaces, degrading
performance), then it is highly advisable and desirable to have this contamination removed prior to it reaching the projectors clean
air supply. Devices or structures to extract or shield contaminated air well away from the projector are a prerequisite, if this is not
a feasible solution then measures to relocate the projector to a clean air environment should be considered. Make sure that the
projector never runs with dirty dustfilters as this will dramatically reduce the lifetime of the consumables. It is advised to clean the
dustfilters on a regular basis and to replace them at any lamp change. Barco reserves itself the right to refuse warranty replacement
of consumables if they have been used in a projector with dirty airfilters. Only use the manufactures recommended cleaning kit which
