4. Remove the operator control panel (OCP).
a. Squeeze the OCP latch tabs (1, Figure 3) and swing the panel
out until fully open (2).
Handle the OCP by its metal frame only. This ensures
that the electronic components are not damaged by static
b. Grasp the OCP by its metal frame and pull it out of the
enclosure (3).
