QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L Safety Warning Summary


This is a summary of safety warnings. For a complete list of warnings, including translations, see the QFX5200 hardware documentation at


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 QFX5200 documentation. Other services must be performed only by authorized service personnel.

  • Before installing the switch, read the planning instructions in the QFX5200 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 QFX5200 documentation.

  • The QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L weighs approximately 23.5 lb (10.66 kg). Manually installing the QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L in a rack or cabinet at a height above 60 in. (152.4 cm) requires two people to lift the switch and install mounting screws. 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 antistatic 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.
