Safety Instructions

Safety Instructions

General Instructions

  • Comply with all local laws and regulations when installing the hardware. The safety instructions in this document are only supplemental to local laws and regulations.
  • Observe the safety instructions that accompany all "DANGER", "WARNING", "CAUTION", and "NOTICE" symbols in this document. These instructions are only supplemental to other safety measures.
  • To ensure safety when installing hardware, follow all safety instructions provided on the device labels and in this document.
  • Operations involving high voltages or moving equipment must be performed by authorized, qualified personnel.
  • Take protective measures before operating the device in residential areas as it is likely to cause radio interference.

Personal Safety

To ensure personal safety, note the following points:

  • Only personnel certified or authorized by Huawei are allowed to install the hardware.
  • Stop any operation that may cause personal injury or equipment damage, report the problem to a project supervisor immediately, and take protective measures.
  • Do not operate the product or handle cables during thunderstorms.
  • Wear clean protective gloves, ESD clothing, a protective hat, and protective shoes, as shown in Figure 10-1.
Figure 10-1 Protective clothing

  • Before carrying devices, note the following points:
    • Do not carry more weight than is permitted by local laws or regulations.
    • Ensue that there are enough people to carry the devices.
  • Before touching a device, ensure that you are wearing ESD clothing and ESD gloves (or wrist strap), and remove any conductive objects (such as watches and jewelry).

    Figure 10-2 shows conductive objects that must be removed before you touch a device.

Figure 10-3 shows how to wear an ESD wrist strap.

  1. Secure the ESD wrist strap around your wrist.
  2. Fasten the strap buckle and ensure that the ESD wrist strap is in contact with your skin.
  3. Insert the ground terminal attached to the ESD wrist strap into the jack on the grounded rack or chassis.

  • Exercise caution when using tools that could cause personal injury.
  • If the installation position of the device is above shoulder height, use a stacker to lift it. This will prevent it from falling.
  • To prevent electric shock, do not touch high-voltage cables directly or indirectly. A high-voltage power supply may be powering the device.
  • Before powering on a device, ensure that it has been properly grounded. Properly grounded devices prevent personal injury.
  • Do not use a ladder alone. Have someone else hold the ladder steady to prevent accidents.
  • To avoid damaging your eyes when installing, testing, or replacing optical cables, do not look into optical ports without eye protection.

Equipment Safety

To ensure equipment safety, note the following points:

  • Use the recommended power cables at all times.
  • Always use the power cables delivered with the devices.
  • Wear ESD clothing and gloves before handling a device. This prevents electrostatic damage.
  • When moving a device, make sure to hold the handles of the device (or the bottom of the devices). Do not hold the handles of the installed modules, such as power modules, fan modules, drives, or boards.
  • Exercise caution to prevent damage to the device when using tools during installation or maintenance.
  • Connect the power cables from the active power supply to one power distribution unit (PDU), and the cables from the backup power supply to another PDU.
  • Ensure that a device is properly grounded on before powering it on.

Transportation Precautions

Improper transportation may damage equipment. Contact the manufacturer for precautions before attempting transportation.

Exercise caution when transporting equipment.

  • 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 always upright. Take necessary precautions to prevent collisions, corrosion, package damage, damp conditions and pollution.
  • Transport the equipment in its original packaging.
  • Package heavy, bulky parts (such as chassis and blades) and fragile parts (such as PCIe GPUs and SSDs) separately.

Use the Huawei Server Compatibility Checker for details about parts supported by a server.

  • Ensure that all devices are powered off before transportation.
  • Do not transport hazardous materials.

Limits for the Maximum Weight Carried Per Person

To reduce the risk of personal injury, comply with local regulations with regard to the maximum weight one person is permitted to carry.
