  • Personal qualifications

All wiring must be performed exclusively by electrical specialists possessing the required level of knowledge and appropriate qualifications as stipulated by local legislation.

  • Do not open device

Under no circumstances should the device be opened. Doing so may expose individuals to hazardous components and increase the risk of electric shock. If the device is defective, do not attempt to repair it. Instead, replace it with a new module.


  • Do not work on device while energised

All power sources to the device should be turned off before performing any work on the hardware.


  • Install the device in appropriate housing

This device must be installed inside an appropriate housing, electrical cabinet, or electrical operation room. Outdoor use is prohibited. Ensure, that the Ambient Conditions specified in Device description -> 1.0 Temperature limitations are always met.


Chasis ground

  • Provide functional grounding

This device must always be grounded. Connect the grounding cable via screw with clamping washer to the grounding terminal located on the lower side of the metal casing. If expansion modules are used, each of them must be grounded individually.


  • Use end sleeves for stranded wires

End sleeves are strongly recommended for all non-solid connection cables. Please check the wire requirements in Device description -> 2. Connectors


  • Avoid Electrostatic discharge

The device may be damaged by electrostatic discharge when touched. When handling the device, make sure that everything that comes into contact with the device is grounded.


  • Strictly follow connection diagrams

To ensure safe and correct operation, always pay special attention to connection diagrams.


  • Do not exceed defined supply voltage

Exceeding the specified voltage may result in damage to the device, risk of electric shock, or fire hazard. Always adhere to the recommended voltage limits outlined in the Device description -> 1.2 Voltage Suply.


  • Do not use in explosive environments

This device is not intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Avoid using the device in environments where flammable gases, vapours, or dust may be present, as this could lead to the risk of fire or explosion.


  • Caution when using near personal medical devices

Exercise heightened caution when using the router in proximity to personal medical devices, such as cardiac pacemakers or hearing aids. Electromagnetic interference from the router may affect the functionality of these devices.


Additional Safety Rules for 3-phase Power Measurement Module:


  • Protect the voltage measurement connection cables

The voltage measurement connection cables must be protected against short-circuit. Take into consideration the cross-section of the cables.


  • Never operate the current transformers with open load

Although the provided current transformers are equipped with protective diodes limiting output voltage, they should never be attached to a live wire without being properly connected to the power measurement module.
