"Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's
attention to Section 820-40 of the NEC which provides guide-
lines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the
cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
10) Ventilation -- Slots and openings in the cabinet are pro-
vided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the
product and to protect it from overheating, and these openings
must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be
blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other sim-
ilar surface. This product should not be placed in a built-in
installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been
11) Power Sources -- This product should be operated only
from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home,
consult your product dealer or local power company. For prod-
ucts intended to operate from battery power, or other sources,
refer to the operating instructions.
12) Grounding or Polarization -- This product may be
equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug
having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into
the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electri-
cian to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
13) Power-Cord Protection -- Power-supply cords should
be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched
by items placed upon or against them, paying particular atten-
tion to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the product.
14) Outdoor Antenna Grounding -- If an outside antenna
or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the anten-
na or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of
the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides infor-
mation with regard to proper grounding of the mast and sup-
porting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna
discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of anten-
na-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
