General Cleaning Instructions
Avoid applying liquid directly onto the device. Instead, dampen a soft clean or sterile cloth or use premoistoned wipes. Gently wipe the unit and be careful not to let liquid pool around the display window or other crevices. Allow the unit to air dry before use.
The frequency at which to clean Newland devices is at the customers discretion. It should be based on the environment and operation the device is used in. The device may be cleaned as frequently as required. Regular cleaning is recommended to avoid build up of dirt that makes the device more difficult to clean later on. For optimum image capture, it is recommended to clean the camera window periodically.
* When using sodium hypochlorite (bleach) based products, carefully follow the manufacturer’s recommended instructions, amongst which the use of gloves and the removal of residue afterwards with a damp alcohol cloth or cotton swab. Newland recommends avoiding exposure of this chemical to metal surfaces, to prevent oxidization. If the disinfectant does come in contact with a metal surface, it should be immediately removed with an alcohol-dampened cloth or cotton swab.
