# Operating, transportation and storage conditions

  1. Operate your devices under the following climatic conditions:

    • Ambient temperature: 25 ± 10 °С

    • Relative humidity: 45 ~ 80 %

    • Atmospheric pressure: 84.0–106.7 kPa (630–800 mmHg)

  2. Packaged endpoints can be transported by all transport modes according to the category 5 conditions of GOST 15150-69, except for unpressurized aircraft compartments and open decks of ships and vessels.

    Endpoints can be transported by rail in containers according to GOST 18477-79.

    When transported in freezing temperatures, keep endpoints in normal climatic conditions for at least 24 hours before unboxing.

  3. At supplier and consumer’s warehouses, video conferencing endpoints must be kept under storage conditions 1 according to GOST 15150-69 with no acidic, alkaline and other aggressive impurities in the air.

  4. According to the manufacturer, the device’s service life is 7 years if the consumer sticks to the rules and conditions of operation, transportation and storage.

    Given that the device is a high-quality and reliable product, the actual service life may exceed the labeled one.
