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   

Before working on a chassis or working near power supplies, unplug the power cord on AC units; disconnect the power at the circuit breaker on DC units.

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.
Warning Before opening the chassis, disconnect the telephone-network cables to avoid contact with telephone-network voltages.
Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity.
Warning Do not touch the power supply when the power cord is connected. For systems with a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply even when the power switch is off and the power cord is connected. For systems without a power switch, line voltages are present within the power supply when the power cord is connected.
Warning Before performing any procedures involving installing or removing chassis elements, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position.
Warning Before working on a chassis or working near power supplies, unplug the power cord on AC units; disconnect the power at the circuit breaker on DC units.
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.
Warning Only trained and qualified service personnel should be allowed to install or replace this equipment.
Caution Before opening the chassis, ensure that you have discharged all static electricity from your body and be sure that the power is OFF.

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 megohm (Mohm).

General Safety Recommendations

Follow these guidelines to ensure general safety:

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

  • Put the removed chassis cover in a safe place.

  • 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.

Required Tools and Equipment

To install or remove cards or perform other maintenance procedures, you will need the following tools and equipment, which are not included:

  • Cisco AS5300 universal access server

  • Card removal tool

  • Medium-size Phillips screwdriver

  • ESD-preventive wrist strap
