Recommended Practices for the Cisco PVDM4

This section describes recommended practices for safe and effective installation of the hardware described in this document.

Safety Recommendations

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

General Maintenance Guidelines for Installing Cisco PVDM4s

Safety Warnings

Safety warnings included in this section apply to all Cisco PVDM4s that are used on Cisco 4451-X Integrated Services Router.

Safety Recommendations

To prevent hazardous conditions, follow these safety recommendations while working with this equipment:

Keep tools away from walk areas where you or others could fall over them.

Do not wear loose clothing around the router. Fasten your tie or scarf and roll up your sleeves to prevent clothing from being caught in the chassis.

Wear safety glasses when working under any conditions that might be hazardous to your eyes.

Locate the emergency power-off switch in the room before you start working. If an electrical accident occurs, shut the power off.

Before working on the router, turn off the power and unplug the power cord.

Disconnect all power sources before doing the following:

Installing or removing a router chassis

Working near power supplies

Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Always check that power is disconnected from a circuit.

Remove possible hazards from your work area, such as damp floors, ungrounded power extension cables, or missing safety grounds.

If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:

Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.

Turn off power to the room using the emergency power-off switch.

Determine the condition of the viction and send another person to get medical aid or call for help.

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

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge can damage equipment and electrical circuitry. Electrostatic discharge occurs when electronic printed circuit cards, such as those used in Cisco service modules and network modules, are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent equipment failure. Always observe the following electrostatic discharge damage (ESD) prevention procedures when installing, removing, and replacing any electronic printed circuit cards:

Make sure that the router chassis is electrically connected to earth ground.

Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, and make sure that it makes good contact with your skin.

Connect the wrist strap clip to an unpainted portion of the chassis frame to channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground.


Caution The wrist strap and clip must be used correctly to ensure proper ESD protection. Periodically confirm that the resistance value of the ESD-preventive wrist strap is between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohm).

If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the router chassis.

General Maintenance Guidelines for Installing Cisco PVDM4s

Keep the router chassis area clear and dust-free during and after installation.

If you remove the chassis cover for any reason, store it in a safe place.

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

Keep walk areas clear to prevent falls or damage to equipment.

Follow installation and maintenance procedures as documented by Cisco Systems, Inc.

Safety Warnings

The following safety warning statements apply to all hardware procedures involving the Cisco Cisco PVDM4 for Cisco 4451-X Integrated Services Router. Translations of these warnings are available in the Cisco Network Modules and Interface Cards Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document, which ships with all individual Cisco Cisco PVDM4 orders and is also available online.


Warning IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. Statement 1001

Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Both LAN and WAN ports may use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. Statement 1021

Warning Hazardous network voltages are present in WAN ports regardless of whether power to the router is OFF or ON. To avoid electric shock, use caution when working near WAN ports. When detaching cables, detach the end away from the router first. Statement 1026

Warning Before opening the chassis, disconnect the telephone-network cables to avoid contact with telephone-network voltages. Statement 1041

Warning The telecommunications lines must be disconnected 1) before unplugging the main power connector and/or 2) while the housing is open. Statement 1043
