Safety Warnings Summary

This is a summary of safety warnings.

Warning: Failure to observe these safety warnings can result in personal injury or death.

  • Permit only trained and qualified personnel to install or replace router components.
  • Perform only the procedures described in this quick start guide and the PTX10016 router documentation. Other services must be performed only by authorized service personnel.
  • Before installing the router, read the planning instructions in the PTX10016 router documentation to make sure that the site meets power, environmental, and clearance requirements for the router.
  • Before connecting the router to a power source, read the installation instructions in the PTX10016 router documentation.
  • A base configuration is about 533 lb (241.77 kg) and redundant configurations can weigh 596 lb (270.34 kg). Installing the PTX10016 router in a rack or cabinet requires either a mechanical lift or three people to lift the router and another person to secure it to the rack. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back.
  • If the rack or cabinet has stabilizing devices, install them in the rack before mounting or servicing the router in the rack or cabinet.
  • Before installing or after removing an electrical component, always place it component-side up on a flat antistatic mat or in an electrostatic bag.
  • Do not work on the router or connect or disconnect cables during electrical storms.
  • Before working on equipment that is connected to power lines, remove jewelry, including rings, necklaces, and watches. Metal objects heat up when connected to power and ground and can cause serious burns or become welded to the terminals.

Caution: Do not place a copper transceiver in an access port directly above or below another copper transceiver. Damage to the access ports will occur.
