If your original system packaging is damaged or has been discarded, you must order a replacement system packaging kit.

Safety Guidelines

Before you begin the repackaging procedure, review the safety guidelines in this section to avoid injuring yourself or damaging the equipment.

In addition, review the safety warnings listed in the document Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco 12012 Gigabit Switch Router (Document Number 78-4347-xx) that support your Cisco 12012 before installing, configuring, or maintaining the router.

Safety Guidelines

The following guidelines will help ensure your safety and protect the equipment. This list is not inclusive of all potentially hazardous situations, so be alert.

Always disconnect all power cords and interface cables before moving the system.

Keep tools and assembly components away from walk areas.

Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe.

Carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

Lifting Safely

A fully configured Cisco 12012 weigh approximately 380 lb (172 kg); individual components of the Cisco 12012 can weigh up to 85 lb (38.5 kg).

Whenever you lift any heavy components, follow these guidelines:

Have a second person available to help lift the component; avoid lifting the component alone.

Ensure that your footing is solid and balance the weight of the object between your feet.

Lift the chassis slowly; never move suddenly or twist your body as you lift.

Keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. If you must bend down to lift the assembly, bend at the knees, not at the waist, to reduce the strain on your lower back muscles.

Always disconnect all external cables before lifting or moving the component.

Safety with Electricity

The line cards, RP, switch fabric cards, alarm card, blower modules, and redundant power supplies are designed to be removed and replaced while the system is operating without presenting an electrical hazard or damage to the system.

Follow these basic guidelines when working with any electrical equipment:

Before beginning any procedures requiring access to the interior of the Cisco 12012, locate the emergency power-off switch for the room in which you are working.

Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:

Use caution; do not become a victim yourself. Disconnect power to the system.

If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim and then call for help.

Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take appropriate action.

Disconnect all power and external cables before installing or removing a router.

Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit; always check.

Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe.

Never install equipment that appears damaged.

Carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

In addition, use the guidelines that follow when working with any equipment that is disconnected from a power source, but still connected to telephone or network wiring:

Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.

Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface.

Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge damage, which can occur when electronic boards or components are handled improperly, can result in complete or intermittent failures.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD-preventive wrist strap or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.

When removing or installing a component, connect the equipment end of a ground strap to one of the two ESD ground sockets located on the front sides of the upper card cage or to bare metal on the frame.

If you plan to return a replaced component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag to avoid ESD damage to the component.

The wrist strap only protects the part from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.


Caution   
You should periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be between 1 and 10 megohms.

Repackaging the Cisco 12012

Repackaging the Cisco 12012 requires that you first remove the major components from the frame to reduce the overall weight to make the system easier to handle. You then remove the frame from the rack and secure it on the pallet, and replace the components in the frame. After you have installed the components back into the frame, you repackage the system using the system packaging procedures in the following sections.

Preparing the Cisco 12012 for Repackaging

Remove the Cisco 12012 frame from the rack, place the frame on the shipping pallet, and secure it to the pallet with four anchors, then reassemble the Cisco 12012 according to the procedures contained in the appendix "Repackaging the Cisco 12012" in the Cisco 12012 Gigabit Switch Router Installation and Configuration Guide.


Caution   
To prevent damage, never attempt to lift or tilt the Cisco 12012 using the handles on the blower modules or on the power supplies. These handles are not designed to support the full weight of the Cisco 12012.

Placing the Cisco 12012 in the System Packaging

Perform the following steps to place the Cisco 12012 in the system packaging:

Step 1 Place all of the accessories (including the brace bar, any AC power cords, documentation and mounting hardware) in the accessories box. (Refer to .)

Step 2 Tape the accessories box shut.

Step 3 Position the large cardboard box on the front of the pallet so that the two foam brackets mounted on the outside of the box are positioned under the system air filter tray. (Refer to .) These two foam brackets prevent the large cardboard box from coming loose during transit.


Note   Cisco 12012 systems can be shipped with two DC-input power supplies or two AC-input power supplies installed in the power supply bay. If your system is configured with three or four AC-input power supplies, you must remove one or two of the power supplies and package them in the large cardboard box. Systems cannot be shipped with more than two power supplies installed in the power supply bay.


Step 4 Perform the following steps to package AC-input power supplies for shipment (refer to ):

(a) Place the one-piece power supply foam insert in the bottom of the large cardboard box.

(b) Position the power supply so that it is resting faceplate up in one of the cutouts in the bottom power supply foam insert. Repeat this step for a second AC-input power supply.


Note   Systems configured with DC-input power supplies can be shipped with the power supplies installed in the power supply bay, or the DC-input power supplies can be shipped in the large cardboard box by removing the foam insert from between the two adjacent foam cutouts to create a double-wide power supply cutout in the foam insert.


(c) Place the two pieces of the power supply foam insert over the top of the power supplies.

(d) Place the accessories box on top of the power supply foam insert.

Step 5 If you are not packaging any power supplies in the large cardboard box, perform the following steps:

(a) Place the one-piece power supply foam insert in the bottom of the cardboard box.

(b) Place the other two power supply foam inserts in the cardboard box.

(c) Place the accessories box in the cardboard box on top of foam inserts.

Step 6 Fold the flaps down and secure the top of the large cardboard box with tape.

Step 7 Place the foam top cap on the top of the Cisco 12012.

Step 8 Install the two wooden side panels on the pallet by performing the following steps (refer to ):

(a) Position one of the shipping packaging wooden side panels on the pallet so that the four tabs on the bottom of the side panel are facing out and fit them into the four slots on the edge of the pallet.

(b) While holding the side panel, bend the four tabs outward 180 degrees with pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver.

(c) Repeat Step a and Step b for the second side panel.

Step 9 Install the two wooden end panels on the pallet by performing the following steps (refer to ):

(a) Position the shipping packaging wooden end panel on the pallet so that the two tabs on the bottom of the panel are facing out and fit them into the two slots on the edge of the pallet.

(b) While holding the end panel, bend the two tabs outward 180 degree with pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver.

(c) Repeat Step a and Step b for the second end panel.

Step 10 Secure the four sides of the shipping container together by performing the following steps (refer to ):

(a) Grasp an end panel with one hand and a side panel with the other hand and fit the two panels together so that the four tabs on the end panel fit into the four slots on the side panel.

(b) While holding the two panels, bend the four tabs outward 180 degrees to secure the two panels together.

(c) Repeat Step a and Step b for the remaining sides of the shipping container.

Step 11 Position the wooden top cap over the top of the shipping container so that the 12 tabs on the sides of the shipping container fit into the 12 slots on the top cap.

Step 12 Bend the 12 tabs outward 180 degrees with pliers or a flat-blade screwdriver.

The Cisco 12012 is now packaged and ready to be transported. Use a forklift or pallet jack to move the Cisco 12012 crate.
