Safety Instructions

GHL products are built with maximum security and safety in mind. However, product safety for this device can only be guaranteed if you follow these guidelines.

To avoid possible electric shock, special care must be taken since water is employed in the use of aquarium equipment. For each of the following situations, DO NOT attempt repairs by yourself. Please read these instructions carefully before operating a Versia Controller.

Anyone who uses this device must become familiar with the following safety instructions and the operation of the device.

Failure to follow these instructions will void any warranty claims.

Be sure to read over the safety instructions provided by this manual; including the respective manuals of other equipment manufacturers.

In this manual, the following symbols are used:

General note, tip or advice.

Important note for operation, to avoid damage to the equipment, and for your safety.

Warning that non-compliance can result in injury or damage to the device.

This equipment must not be used:

  • By small children and vulnerable persons with limited physical, sensory or mental capabilities.
  • By people who are unfamiliar with the functions of this product.

The Versia Controller is intended exclusively for use in the domestic area. Versia Controller may only be operated with GHL accessories.

Make sure to place the device away from splashing water, moisture or other liquids.

Moisture indicators are placed inside the unit and will change color when exposed to excessive moisture. Removing these indicators will void all warranty claims.

  • Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded outlet; otherwise, you could get an electric shock or cause a fire.
  • Protect the power cable from damage (For example, twisting, kinking, clamping). Please also pay attention to the joints and connections to the device.
  • Disconnect the power plug by pulling the plug, not the cable.
  • Never attempt to disassemble, repair or alter the equipment by yourself.
  • Do not insert sharp objects into the electrical contacts and ports.
  • If the device falls into the aquarium or has been exposed to moisture or humidity, first turn OFF the power to the device via the fuse or circuit breaker, then pull the power cord.
  • Never touch the power plug with wet hands!
  • If the device gets wet or dirty, thoroughly clean and dry it with a dry cloth.
  • The device may not be operated if it has been damaged in any way (e.g., Damaged power cord or plug, liquids or objects have gotten into the interior, device has been exposed to excessive moisture, the normal operation is disturbed, or the device has been dropped.)

To avoid the possibility of the power plug or receptacle getting wet, use the power cable to create a “drip-loop” for each cord connecting an aquarium appliance to a receptacle. The “drip-loop” is the part of the cord below the level of the receptacle or the connector if an extension cord is used, which prevents water from traveling along the cord and coming in contact with the receptacle.

If the plug or socket does get wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Instead, disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies power to the appliance, then unplug and examine for presence of water in the receptacle.
