To users of our inverters: Our inverters are designed to control the speeds of three-phase induction motors for general industry.

Please read the instruction manual before installing or operating the inverter unit.
This product is intended for general purpose uses in industrial application. It cannot be used applications where may cause big
impact on public uses, such as power plant and railway, and equipment which endanger human life or injury, such as nuclear
power control, aviation, space flight control, traffic, safety device, amusement, or medical.
It may be considerable whether to apply, under the special condition or an application where strict quality control may not be
required. Please contact our headquarters, branch, or local offices printed on the front and back covers of this catalogue.
When exporting Toshiba Inverter separately or combined with your equipment, please be sure to satisfy the objective conditions
and inform conditions listed in the export control policies, so called Catch All restrictions, which are set by the Ministry of
Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, and the appropriate export procedures must also be taken.
Please use our product in applications where do not cause serious accidents or damages even if product is failure, or please use
in environment where safety equipment is applicable or a backup circuit device is provided outside the system.
Please do not use our product for any load other than three-phase induction motors.
None of Toshiba, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents, shall be liable for any physical damages, including, without limitation,
malfunction, anomaly, breakdown or any other problem that may occur to any apparatus in which the Toshiba inverter is
incorporated or to any equipment that is used in combination with the Toshiba inverter. Nor shall Toshiba, its subsidiaries,
affiliates or agents be liable for any compensatory damages resulting from such utilization, including compensation for special,
indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, or for loss of profit, income or data, even if the user has been
advised or apprised of the likelihood of the occurrence of such loss or damages.
