Installing 6-Port MICA Modules


Product Number: MICA-6MOD=

This document describes how to replace the 6-port MICA modules used by Cisco 3640 routers and Cisco AS5300 universal access servers.

Use this document with the installation material shipped with the product, the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document, and the Cisco IOS configuration guides and command references. For information about modem AT commands, refer to the AT Command Set and Register Summary for MICA 6-Port Modules publication.

Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a CD-ROM, which ships with your product. The Documentation CD, a member of the Cisco Connection Family, is updated monthly. Therefore, it might be more up to date than printed documentation. To order additional copies of the Documentation CD, contact your local sales representative or call customer service. The CD is available as a single unit or as an annual subscription.

Safety Recommendations

Follow these guidelines to ensure general safety:

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

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

Do not wear loose clothing that could get caught in the chassis. Fasten your tie or scarf and roll up your sleeves.

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

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

Safety with Electricity


Warning    

Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source.



Warning    

Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations.



Warning   

Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install or replace this equipment.



Warning   

To ensure your safety and the safety of others, be sure the power is OFF and the power cord is unplugged before working on the router.



Warning   

Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects will heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the terminals.


Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:

Locate the emergency power-OFF switch in the room in which you are working. Then, if an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly shut the power OFF.

Disconnect all power before doing the following:

Installing or removing a chassis

Working near power supplies

Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.

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.

Turn OFF power to the system.

If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, determine 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.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It occurs when electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD prevention procedures when removing and replacing cards. Ensure that the chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact. Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must operate effectively. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.


Caution   
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohm).
