Safety Instructions

Safety Instructions

General Instructions

  • Comply with all local laws and regulations when installing the hardware. These Safety Instructions are only a supplement.
  • Observe the instructions that accompany all "DANGER", "WARNING", "CAUTION", and "NOTE" symbols in this document. Follow them in conjunction with these Safety Instructions.
  • Observe all safety instructions provided on the device labels when installing hardware. Follow them in conjunction with these Safety Instructions.
  • Only personnel (such as electricians and forklift operators) who are certified by the local government or official organizations are allowed to perform hardware installation.
  • The product is a Class A device. Take protective measures against radio interference before operating the device in residential areas.

Personal Safety

  • Ensure that only personnel authorized by Huawei install hardware.
  • In case of any problems that may cause injury to personnel or damage to devices, immediately stop operations and report the problems to a project supervisor and take corrective measures.
  • Do not move devices or install cabinets and power cables in hazardous weather conditions.
  • For lifting or carrying hardware, ensure load limits and manpower provisions conform to legal specifications.
  • Remove electricity-conductive materials such as watches and jewelry, as shown in Figure 1-1.
    Figure 1-1 Removing easily-conductive objects
  • Wear clean protective gloves, ESD clothing, a protective hat, and protective shoes, as shown in Figure 1-2.
    Figure 1-2 Protective clothing

Figure 1-3 shows how to wear an ESD wrist strap.

  1. Put on the ESD wrist strap.
  2. Fasten the buckle and ensure that the ESD wrist strap is in good contact with your skin.
  3. Insert the ground terminal of the ESD wrist strap into the jack on the grounded cabinet or chassis.

  • Exercise caution when using tools to prevent injuries.
  • If the position for installing the device is higher than your shoulders, use a stacker to lift the device to prevent it from falling on top of you.
  • High-voltage power supply provides power for device operation. Do not touch high-voltage cables directly or through conductive materials. This may cause danger of electrocution.
  • Before powering on a device, ground it to prevent injuries.
  • Do not use the ladder unsupervised. Have someone else hold the ladder steady to prevent accidents.
  • Do not view the open optical port directly when installing, testing, or replacing optical cables to prevent laser radiation from injuring your eyes.

Transportation Precautions

Contact the manufacturer for precautions before attempting transportation.

  • The logistics company engaged to transport the equipment must be reliable and comply with international standards for transporting electronics. Ensure that the equipment being transported is kept upright and avoid collision, damp conditions, corrosion, package damage, and pollution.
  • Transport the equipment in its original packaging.
  • Package fragile parts such as optical modules, PCIe SSDs, and GPUs separately from bulky items such as chassis.
  • Power off all equipment before transportation. Do not transport hazardous materials.

Capacity Expansion Precautions

  • Use only genuine components that can be queried in the Huawei Server Compatibility Checker.
  • Only maintenance engineers authorized by Huawei are allowed to expand capacity. Avoid physical damage caused by electrostatic discharge, collision, and scratches.
  • Before expanding capacity, back up data and isolate the equipment from the network to prevent data loss, service interruption, and network loops.
  • After expanding capacity, upgrade software to prevent software incompatibility with new components.

Equipment Safety

  • To ensure equipment and human safety, use the recommended power cables.
  • Power cables can be used only for dedicated devices, and they cannot be used for any other devices.
  • Before touching devices, wear ESD clothing and gloves to avoid electrostatic damage.
  • When moving devices, hold the handles or bottom of devices instead of the handles of the installed modules (for example, a PSU, fan module, hard disk, or board).
  • Exercise caution when using tools to avoid equipment damage.
  • Connect the power cables to different power distribution units (PDUs) so that the PDUs can supply power to the device in active/standby mode. This improves power supply reliability.
  • Before powering on a device, ground it to prevent device damage.

Maximum Load Carried by a Single Person
