Notice on maintenance (cleaning and sterilization) of
RION Sound & Vibration measuring instruments


Thank you for using RION products.
We would like to inform you about the maintenance (cleaning and sterilization) of RION products for the prevention from the COVID-19 as follows;

Many products that are not generally intended to be used with sterilized (disinfected), such as measuring instruments including RION Sound & Vibration measuring instruments, are not recommended to be cleaned and sterilized using alcohol. 
This is because the deterioration of the enclosures and damage to resin parts and precision parts due to alcohol are expected.

Cleaning method of RION acoustic vibration measuring instrument:
(This does not guarantee the disinfection effect against the COVID-19)

1.  Before cleaning, be sure to turn off the power of the product and unplug the power plug and AC adapter from the outlet. Also, remove the batteries.

2.  To remove dirt, use a soft, dry cloth, or a cloth soaked in warm water and well wrung out.

3.   For severe dirt, use a cloth soaked in diluted neutral detergent and well wrung out, to wipe off gently. Then, use with a cloth soaked in clean water and well wrung out, to wipe off the neutral detergent. 
Note: Do not use neutral detergent to clean the openings (microphone grid, connection terminals, etc.).

 
As a general rule, alcohol and sodium hypochlorite, which are effective in preventing the COVID-19 infection, cannot be used. However, alcohol sterilization (disinfection) may be possible depending on some models and specific parts. Information will be disclosed as soon as it is confirmed.
We will keep providing useful information for prevention of COVID-19 infection.
