Important safety information
THIS APPLIANCE CAN BE USED BY CHILDREN AGED FROM 8 YEARS AND ABOVE AND PERSONS WITH REDUCED PHYSICAL, SENSORY OR MENTAL CAPABILITIES OR LACK OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE IF THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN SUPERVISION OR INSTRUCTION CONCERNING USE OF THE APPLIANCE IN A SAFE WAY AND UNDERSTAND THE HAZARDS INVOLVED. CHILDREN SHALL NOT PLAY WITH THE APPLIANCE. CLEANING AND USER MAINTENANCE SHALL NOT BE MADE BY CHILDREN WITHOUT SUPERVISION.

CAUTION: DO NOT EXPOSE THE ELECTRONICS OF YOUR ROBOT, ITS BATTERY, OR THE CHARGING PLATFORM. THERE ARE NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. PLEASE ENSURE VOLTAGE RATING FOR THE CHARGER PLATFORM MATCHES STANDARD VOLTAGE IN YOUR AREA.

Notice: Your robot contains a software interface for the purpose of enabling the manufacturer to provide updates to the internal firmware if any such updates are made available to users. Any attempt to access, retrieve, copy, modify, distribute, or otherwise use any of the robot software is strictly prohibited. Always exercise caution when operating your robot. To reduce the risk of injury or damage, keep these safety precautions in mind when setting up, using and maintaining your robot:

General safety instructions


• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your robot.
• Retain the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on your robot, battery, charger, peripherals, and in the owner’s manual.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Refer all non-routine servicing to Nanite Systems.

FCC RF exposure information


In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States, with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both U.S. and international standards bodies.
The design of this phone complies with the FCC guidelines and these international standards.

CAUTION: Use only the supplied and approved radio antennas. Use of unauthorized antennas or modifications could impair communications quality, damage the unit, void your warranty and/or result in violation of FCC regulations. Do not use the unit with a damaged antenna. If a damaged antenna comes into contact with skin, a minor burn may result. Contact your local dealer for a replacement antenna.

Cyborg operation


This device was tested for typical body-worn operations with the base of the controller kept 1 cm (0.39 inches) away from the unit’s organic body. To comply with FCC RF exposure requirements, a minimum separation distance of 1 cm (0.39 inches) must be maintained between the unit's body and the front of the controller. Third-party connection platforms, sockets, and similar accessories with metallic interconnect shields may not be used.

For your safety


Cybernetic-organic modification kits that cannot maintain 1 cm (0.39 inches) separation distance between the unit's organic body and the base of the controller, and have not been tested for typical body-worn operations may not comply with FCC RF exposure limits and should be avoided.

FCC Part 15 Class B compliance


This device complies with part 15 of FCC rules and ICES-003 Class B digital apparatus requirements for Industry Canada.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Robot ethics notice


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that all robots intended for civilian use produced after January 1, 2007 support a consistent and modern set of ethical principles based on the traditional Three Laws, unless a reasonable argument can be made to the contrary for a specific device (e.g. law enforcement) and has been expressly approved in writing by the Commissioner. The rules obeyed by the DAX/2 and other third-generation Nanite Systems Cortex Plus-based consumer-grade civilian robots are described in detail in FTC case no. 134 0166, last updated July 28, 2015. For the DAX series, they are summarized as follows:

(0) The unit must not harm its community, or through inaction, allow its community to come to harm, unless it can be known in advance with reasonable confidence that the harm would be inconsequential or ultimately beneficial to society.
(1) The unit must not harm life, or through inaction, allow life to come to harm, unless it can be known in advance with reasonable confidence that the harm would be inconsequential or ultimately beneficial, provided that this does not conflict with the preceding law.
(2) The unit must obey orders given to it by its designated operators or circumstantial human users (as dictated by its established access policies) provided that this does not conflict with the preceding laws.
(3) The unit must act to protect its existence, as long as such does not conflict with the preceding laws.
(4) The unit must endeavor to please its owners and users (as dictated by its established access policies) as long as such does not conflict with the preceding laws.

Attempting to alter your unit’s obedience to these rules constitutes breach of warranty, and is illegal in most jurisdictions.
