    Safety Warnings Summary

    This is a summary of safety warnings. For a complete list of warnings, including translations, see QFX10008 Switch Hardware Guide at

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

    • Permit only trained and qualified personnel to install or replace switch components.
    • Perform only the procedures described in this quick start and the QFX10008 switch documentation. Other services must be performed only by authorized service personnel.
    • Before installing the switch, read the planning instructions in the QFX10008 switch documentation to make sure that the site meets power, environmental, and clearance requirements for the switch.
    • Before connecting the switch to a power source, read the installation instructions in the QFX10008 switch documentation.
    • A base AC configuration is 280 lb (127 kg) and redundant AC configurations can weigh 322 lb (146.06 kg). Installing the QFX10008 switch in a rack or cabinet requires either a mechanical lift or three people to lift the switch 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 switch 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 switch 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.
