CTP151 Safety Guidelines and Warnings

 

For your safety, before installing the device, review all safety warnings in this section.

Warning

The recommended maximum ambient temperature is 40° C (104° F). For safe operation, take into consideration the internal temperature within the rack.

Warning

Install equipment in the rack from the bottom upward. Doing this helps maintain the stability of the rack and reduces the chance of the rack tipping over.

Warning

Do not insert any metal object, such as a screwdriver, into an open slot or the backplane. Doing so can cause electric shock and serious burns.

Warning

For the larger CTP Series devices, three people are required to install the device in a rack: two to lift the device into position and one to screw it to the rack.

Warning

Connect the device or rack to ground (earth), and ensure that a reliable grounding path is maintained in the rack.

Warning

Do not work on the device or connect or disconnect cables during lightning activity.

Warning

Be sure that circuit breakers for the power source are in the OFF position before attaching power cables.

Warning

Before servicing the device, turn off the power.

Warning

Remove jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches) before working on equipment that is connected to power lines. Metal objects heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or become welded to the terminals.

Caution

Evaluate the overall loading of the branch circuit before you install any equipment into a rack.
