If the device is to be installed in a remote location (e.g., on a utility pole, or on a mobile platform), we recommend that you follow the instructions in this Installation Guide to perform an initial setup in a "staging" environment, such as a lab or control center. Once the device has been set up and is demonstrated to be operating normally, you can then move it to the remote location.


Before installing the device, please refer to the "Safety Guidelines" in the Makito X Encoder User's Guide or Makito X Decoder User's Guide . Only connect the unit to a compatible power source. If an electrical fault occurs, disconnect the unit and contact Haivision Technical Support. Never try to force the connections when setting up the system as this may damage the unit.
