Check the Power Supply

This server is equipped with a universal power supply that handles 100-240V, 50/60 Hz. A standard power cord interface (IEC 950) facilitates power plugs that are suitable for most European, North American, and Pacific Rim countries.

Power Supply Precautions

Warning:

Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from power surges, voltage spikes and to keep the server operating in case of a power failure.

In geographic regions that are susceptible to electrical storms, 8e6 highly recommends plugging the AC power cord for the server into a surge suppressor.

Use appropriately rated extension cords or power strips only.

Allow power supply units to cool before touching them.

General Safety Information

Server Operation and Maintenance Precautions

Warning:

Observe the following safety precautions during server operation and maintenance:

WARNING: If the server is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the server may be impaired.

WARNING: 8e6 Technologies is not responsible for regulatory compliance of any server that has been modified. Altering the server’s enclosure in any way other than the installation operations specified in this document may invalidate the server’s safety certifications.

CAUTION: Never pile books, papers, or other objects on the chassis, drop it, or subject it to pressure in any other way. The internal circuits can be damaged, and the battery may be crushed or punctured. Besides irreparable damage to the unit, the result could be dangerous heat and even fire.

CAUTION: There are nouser-serviceablecomponents inside the chassis. The chassis should only be opened by qualified service personnel. Never disassemble, tamper with, or attempt to repair the server. Doing so may cause smoke, fire, electrical shock, serious physical injury, or death.

Do not insert objects through openings in the chassis. Doing so could result in a short circuit that might cause a fire or an electrical shock.

Do not operate the server in an explosive atmosphere, in the presence of flammable gases.

To ensure proper cooling, always operate the server with its covers in place. Do not block any openings on the chassis. Do not place the server near a heater.

Always exit the software application properly before turning off the server to ensure data integrity.

Do not expose the server to rain or use near water. If liquids of any kind should leak into the chassis, power down the server, unplug it, and contact 8e6 Technologies technical support.

Disconnect power from the server before cleaning the unit. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.

AC Power Cord and Cable Precautions

Warning:

The AC power cord for the server must be plugged into a grounded, power outlet.

Do not modify or use a supplied AC power cord if it is not the exact type required in the region where the server will be installed and used. Replace the cord with the correct type.

Route the AC power cord and cables away from moving parts and foot traffic.

Do not allow anything to rest on the AC power cord and cables.

Never use the server if the AC power cord has been damaged.

Always unplug the AC power cord before removing the unit for servicing.

Electrical Safety Precautions

Warning:

Heed the following safety precautions to protect yourself from harm and the server from damage:

CAUTION: Dangerous voltages associated with the100-240V AC power supply are present inside the unit. To avoid injury or electrical shock, do not touch exposed connections or components while the power is on.

To prevent damage to the server, read the information in this document for selection of the proper input voltage.

Do not wear rings or wristwatches when troubleshooting electrical circuits.

To avoid fire hazard, use only the specified fuse(s) with the correct type number, voltage, and current ratings. Only qualified service personnel should replace fuses.

Qualified service personnel should be properly grounded when servicing the unit.

Qualified service personnel should perform a safety check after any service is performed.

Motherboard Battery Precautions

Caution:

The battery on the motherboard should not be replaced without following instructions provided by the manufacturer. Only qualified service personnel should replace batteries.

The battery contains energy and, as with all batteries, a malfunction can cause heat, smoke, or fire, release toxic materials, or cause burns. Do not disassemble, puncture, drop, crush, bend, deform, submerge or modify the battery. Do not incinerate or expose to heat above 140°F (60°C).

There is a danger of explosion if the battery on the motherboard is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarities.

CAUTION: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER. DISPOSE OF THE USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.

ATTENTION: IL Y A DANGER D’EXPLOSION S’IL Y A REPLACEMENT INCORRECT DE LA BATTERIE, REMPLACER UNIQUEMENT AVEC UNE BATTERIE DU MÊME TYPE OU D’UN TYPE ÉQUIVALENT RECOMMANDÉ PAR LE CONSTRUCTEUR. METTRE AU REBUT LES BATTERIES USAGÉES CONFORMÊMENT AUX INSTRUCTIONS DU FABRICANT.

WARNING: Users in Member States should consult Article 20 of Directive 2006/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council before disposing the motherboard battery.
