Reading Carefully the Safety Cautions

Reading Carefully the Safety Cautions

Read and follow all the safety cautions and instructions on the chassis or described in this document to protect personal and equipment safety during installation, operation, and maintenance.

WARNING, CAUTION, and DANGER items in this document do not cover all the safety cautions and are only supplementary to the safety cautions.

Installation and maintenance personnel must be trained to perform operations correctly and safely.

General Safety Guidelines

In case of fire, immediately leave the building or equipment deployment site and press the fire alarm button or call the fire department. Never enter the building on fire again in any situation.
  • Before performing any operation on a router, wear ESD clothing and ESD gloves or an ESD wrist strap. Remove conductive objects like jewelry and watches.
  • After installing the router on a cabinet/rack, connect the ground cable to the chassis before any operations on the chassis and remove the ground cable only after you remove all the other components and cables from the chassis.

Environmental Safety

Do not place or operate the router in an environment with flammable or explosive gases or smoke.
  • Keep the router away from water or damp to prevent damages to circuits.
  • The router heats during operation. The installation site must be well ventilated to ensure normal operation of the router.

Electric Safety

  • Direct contact with a high-voltage power source or indirect contact through damp objects can be fatal. Misoperations on high-voltage facilities may result in fire, electric shock, or other accident.
  • Never install or remove the router or power cables while the power is on. The electric arc or spark generated between a power cable and conductor may cause a fire or eye damage.
  • To protect personal and equipment safety, ground the router before powering it on.

Laser Safety

  • Invisible laser beams will cause eye damage. Do not look into bores of optical modules or connectors of optical fibers without eye protection.
  • After unplugging an optical fiber, cover the fiber connectors with dust caps.

Mechanical Safety

  • Before carrying a heavy object, use appropriate tools to protect yourself from bruise or sprain.
  • Before pulling the chassis out of the cabinet, check whether there are any unstable or heavy objects on the cabinet. Be careful not to make the objects fall, which may cause body injuries.
  • Do not drill holes on a cabinet without permission. Unqualified holes on a cabinet affect the electromagnetic filter performance of the cabinet and cause damages to the cables in the cabinet. In addition, metal scraps may fall into the cabinet when you are drilling holes, causing short circuit on printed circuit boards (PCBs).
