1. Safety1.1General Safety InformationRead all safety information in this manual carefully before usingthe YSI 556 Multi-Probe System (MPS). Reagents that are usedto calibrate and check this instrument may be hazardous to yourhealth. Take a moment to review Appendix D Health and Safety.WARNINGWarnings are used in this manual when misuse of the instrumentcould result in death or serious injury to a person.CAUTIONCautions are used in this manual when misuse of the instrumentcould result in mild or serious injury to a person and/or damageto equipment.IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS!SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!In essence, the most important safety rule for use of the YSI 556MPS is to utilize the instrument ONLY for purposes documentedin this manual. This is particularly true of the YSI 6117rechargeable battery pack that contains nickel metal hydride(NiMH) batteries. The user should be certain to read all of thesafety precautions outlined below before using the instrument.YSI 6117 Rechargeable Battery Pack Safety InformationRestrictions on Usage1. Never dispose of the battery pack in a fire.2. Do not attempt to disassemble the YSI 6117 battery pack.3. Do not tamper with any of the electronic components or thebatteries within the battery pack. Tampering with either theelectronic circuitry or the batteries will result in the voidingof the warranty and the compromising of the systemperformance, but, more importantly, can cause safetyYSI IncorporatedYSI 556 MPSPage 1

SafetySection 1hazards which result from overcharging such as overheating,venting of gas, and loss of corrosive electrolyte.4. Do not charge the battery pack outside the 0–40 Ctemperature range.5. Do not use or store the battery at high temperature, such asin strong direct sunlight, in cars during hot weather, ordirectly in front of heaters.6. Do not expose the battery pack to water or allow theterminals to become damp.7. Avoid striking or dropping the battery pack. If the packappears to have sustained damage from these actions ormalfunctions after an impact or drop, the user should notattempt to repair the unit. Instead, contact YSI CustomerService. Refer to Appendix E Customer Service.8. If the battery pack is removed from the YSI 556 MPS, do notstore it in pockets or packaging where metallic objects suchas keys can short between the positive and negativeterminals.Precautions for Users with Small ChildrenKeep the battery pack out of reach of babies and small children.Danger Notifications – Misuse creates a STRONG possibility of deathor serious injury.FAILURE TO CAREFULLY OBSERVE THEFOLLOWING PROCEDURES AND PRECAUTIONS CANRESULT IN LEAKAGE OF BATTERY FLUID, HEATGENERATION, BURSTING, AND SERIOUS PERSONALINJURY.1. Never dispose of the battery pack in a fire or heat it.2. Never allow the positive and negative terminals of thebattery pack to become shorted or connected withelectrically conductive materials. When the battery pack hasbeen removed from the YSI 556 MPS, store it in a heavyplastic bag to prevent accidental shorting of the terminals.Page 2YSI 556 MPSYSI Incorporated

SafetySection 13. Never disassemble the battery pack and do not tamper withany of the electronic components or the batteries within thebattery pack. The battery pack is equipped with a variety ofsafety features. Accidental deactivation of any of thesesafety features can cause a serious hazard to the user.4. The NiMH batteries in the battery pack contain a strongalkaline solution (electrolyte). The alkaline solution isextremely corrosive and will cause damage to skin or othertissues. If any fluid from the battery pack comes in contactwith a user’s eyes, immediately flush with clean water andconsult a physician immediately. The alkaline solution candamage eyes and lead to permanent loss of eyesight.Warning Notifications – Misuse creates a possibility of death or seriousinjury1. Do not allow the battery pack to contact freshwater,seawater, or other oxidizing reagents that might cause rustand result in heat generation. If a battery becomes rusted, thegas release vent may no longer operate and this failure canresult in bursting.2. If electrolyte from the battery pack contacts the skin orclothing, thoroughly wash the area immediately with cleanwater. The battery fluid can irritate the skin.Caution Notifications – Misuse creates a possibility of mild or seriousinjury or damage to the equipment.1. Do not strike or drop the battery pack. If any impact damageto the battery pack is suspected, contact YSI CustomerService. Refer to Appendix E Customer Service.2. Store the battery pack out of reach of babies and smallchildren.3. Store the battery pack between the temperatures of -20 and30 C.4. Before using the battery pack, be sure to read the operationmanual and all precautions carefully. Then store thisinformation carefully to use as a reference when the needarises.YSI IncorporatedYSI 556 MPSPage 3

SafetySection 1YSI 616 Cigarette Lighter Charger Safety Information1. This section contains important safety and operatinginstructions for the YSI 556 MPS cigarette lighter batterycharger (YSI 616; RadioShack Number 270-1533E). BESURE TO SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.2. Before using the YSI 616 cigarette lighter charger, read allinstructions and cautionary markings on battery charger,battery pack, and YSI 556 MPS.3. Charge the YSI 6117 battery pack with the YSI 616 cigarettelighter charger ONLY when the YSI 6117 is installed in theYSI 556 MPS.4. Do not expose charger to rain, moisture, or snow.5. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by thebattery charger manufacturer may result in a risk of fire,electric shock, or injury to persons.6. To reduce risk of damage to cigarette lighter and cord, pullby cigarette lighter rather than cord when disconnectingcharger.7. Make sure that the cord is located so that it will not bestepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damageor stress.8. Do not operate charger with damaged cord or cigarettelighter connector – replace it immediately.9. Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, beendropped, or otherwise damaged in any way; contact YSICustomer Service. Refer to Appendix E Customer Service.10. Do not disassemble charger other than to change the fuse asinstructed. Replace the part or send it to YSI Product Serviceif repair is required (refer to Appendix E Customer Service).Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock orfire.11. To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug charger beforeattempting any maintenance or cleaning. Turning offcontrols will not reduce this risk.Page 4YSI 556 MPSYSI Incorporated

SafetySection 1YSI 556 MPS Water Leakage Safety InformationThe YSI 556 MPS has been tested and shown to comply withIP67 criterion, i.e. submersion in 1 meter of water for 30 minuteswith no leakage into either the battery compartment or the maincase. However, if the instrument is submersed for periods of timein excess of 30 minutes, leakage may occur with subsequentdamage to the batteries, the rechargeable battery pack circuitry,and/or the electronics in the main case.If leakage into the battery compartment is observed when usingalkaline C cells, remove batteries, dispose of batteries properly,and dry the battery compartment completely, ideally usingcompressed air. If corrosion is present on the battery terminals,contact YSI Customer Service for instructions. Refer toAppendix E Customer Service.If leakage into the battery compartment is observed when usingthe YSI 6117 rechargeable battery pack, remove the batteryassembly and set aside to dry. Return the battery pack to YSIProduct Service for evaluation of possible damage. Finally drythe battery compartment completely, ideally using compressedair. If corrosion is present on the battery terminals, contact YSICustomer Service for instructions. Refer to Appendix ECustomer Service.CAUTION: If water has contacted the rechargeable batterypack, do not attempt to reuse it until it has been evaluated by YSIProduct Service (refer to Appendix E Customer Service). Failureto follow this precaution can result in serious injury to the user.If it is suspected that leakage into the main cavity of the case hasoccurred, remove the batteries immediately and return theinstrument to YSI Product Service for damage assessment. Referto Appendix E Customer Service.CAUTION: Under no circumstances should the user attempt toopen the main case.YSI IncorporatedYSI 556 MPSPage 5
