General Guidelines

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.


Only trained and qualified personnel should install, replace, or service this equipment.


This product is intended for installation in a restricted area. Limited access areas are protected by a specific mechanism, lock and key or other security device.


When using the AC/DC power adapter, the power cord is the main disconnect device. Ensure that the socket-outlet is located/installed near the equipment and is easily accessible.

This unit may have several power connections. All connections must be removed to turn off the unit.


The installation of the equipment must comply with local and national electrical regulations.


If you remove a power supply or fan module, replace it immediately to prevent disruption of service.


Blank Faceplates and Cover Panels
Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: They prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.

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.


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.

ATTENTION Lors de la manipulation de composants ou lors du réglage des options de commutateur, utilisez toujours un bracelet antistatique connecté à un cadre ou un châssis d'équipement relié à la terre. Si aucun bracelet n'est disponible, touchez périodiquement une surface métallique non peinte de l'équipement. N'utilisez jamais d'outil conducteur, tel qu'un tournevis ou un trombone, pour régler les commutateurs ou interrupteurs.
