Unpacking a Carton

Unpacking a Carton


Cartons are used to package S12704, S12712 switches, and cables, cards, power modules, or other modules.

  • When cutting the pressure-sensitive adhesive tape on a carton, do not insert the utility knife too deep; otherwise, the utility knife may cut the components in the carton.
  • Wear gloves or take other protection measures to prevent hand injuries when unpacking a carton.

Before unpacking a carton, move it to or close to the installation site (equipment room for example). Do not transport the unpacked equipment over a long distance.


  • Utility knife
  • Diagonal pliers
  • Protective gloves
  • Adjustable wrench
  • Phillips screwdriver


  1. Inspect the carton. If the carton is wet, or the label on the carton is damaged, analyze the cause and contact the equipment supplier immediately. If no exception is found, go to the next step.
  2. Check the label on the carton to learn about the type and number of components in the carton.
  3. Open the carton.

      1. Cut the strapping band with diagonal pliers. See callout 1 in Figure 6-1.
      2. Cut the pressure-sensitive adhesive tape with a utility knife. See callout 2 in Figure 6-1.
      3. Open the carton and remove the foam materials. See callout 3 in Figure 6-1.
      4. Take out the device or component from the carton. If a switch is in the carton, lift the switch out of the carton by its handles.

      1. Cut the strapping band with diagonal pliers. See callout 1 in Figure 6-2.
      2. Remove the top cover of the carton. Take out the accessory packages and save them in an appropriate place. See callout 2 in Figure 6-2.
      3. Drag the two plastic release latch at a side of the carton to unfold the carton, and then remove the four cardboards and the foam materials. See callout 3 in Figure 6-2.
      4. Remove the plastic bag covering on the switch. See callout 4 in Figure 6-2.
      5. Remove the fixtures at the base.

        Use an adjustable wrench to remove the four bolts connecting the base and fixtures, use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the twelve screws on the fixtures, and then remove the fixtures. See callout 5 in Figure 6-2.

      6. Lift the switch from the base by the handles. See callout 6 in Figure 6-2.

  4. Check whether the number of components on the packing list is the same as the number marked on the carton. If so, take out the components.
  5. Check the components. If any problem is found, contact the equipment supplier immediately.
