Safety Guidelines

Last updated on Apr 18, 2019

Use the following guidelines when unsafe conditions exist or when potentially hazardous voltages are present:
  • Always use caution and common sense.
  • To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not operate equipment with the cover removed.
  • Repairs must be performed by qualified service personnel only.

Improper handling and/or installation practices of sensitive equipment may VOID the warranty.

Caution

When handling components, or when setting switch options, always use an antistatic wrist strap connected to a grounded equipment frame or chassis. If a wrist strap is not available, periodically touch an unpainted metal surface on the equipment. Never use a conductive tool, such as a screwdriver or a paper clip, to set switches.

Antistatic Precautions

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) results from the buildup of static electricity and can cause computer components to fail. Electrostatic discharge occurs when a person whose body contains a static buildup touches a computer component.

The equipment contains static-sensitive devices that may be easily damaged, and proper handling and grounding is essential. Use ESD precautionary measures when installing systems or cards, and keep the parts and cards in antistatic packaging when not in use. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and workbench pads.

Caution

When handling components, or when setting switch options, always use an antistatic wrist strap connected to a grounded equipment frame or chassis. If a wrist strap is not available, periodically touch an unpainted metal surface on the equipment. Never use a conductive tool, such as a screwdriver or a paper clip, to set switches.
