Warning: Class 1 Laser product. L1

Warning: Do not stare into the laser beam. L2

Warning: To prevent electric shock, do not remove the cover. Nouser-serviceableparts inside. This unit contains hazardous voltages and should only be opened by a trained and qualified technician. To avoid the possibility of electric shock, disconnect electric power to the product before connecting or disconnecting the LAN cables. E1

Warning: Do not work on equipment or cables during periods of lightning activity. E2

Warning: Class I Equipment. This equipment must be earthed. The power plug must be connected to a properly wired earth ground socket outlet. An improperly wired socket outlet could place hazardous voltages on accessible metal parts. E4

Pluggable Equipment. The socket outlet shall be installed near the equipment and shall be easily accessible. E5

Caution: Air vents must not be blocked and must have free access to the room ambient air for cooling. E6

Warning: Operating Temperature. This product is designed for a maximum ambient temperature of 40° degrees C. E7

All Countries: Install product in accordance with local and

National Electrical Codes. E8

Warning: As a safety precaution, install a circuit breaker with a minimum value of 15 Amps between the equipment and the DC power source.

Always connect the wires to the LAN equipment first before you connect the wires to the circuit breaker. Do not work with HOT feeds to avoid the danger of physical injury from electrical shock. Always be sure that the circuit breaker is in the OFF position before connecting the wires to the breaker. E9

Warning: Do not strip more than the recommended amount of wire. Stripping more than the recommended amount can create a safety hazard by leaving exposed wire on the terminal block after installation. E10

Warning: When installing this equipment, always ensure that the frame ground connection is installed first and disconnected last.E11

Warning: Check to see if there are any exposed copper strands coming from the installed wire. When this installation is done correctly there should be no exposed copper wire strands extending from the terminal block. Any exposed wiring can conduct harmful levels of electricity to persons touching the wires. E12

This system works with positive grounded or negative grounded DC systems. E13

Circuit Overloading: Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern. E21


Chapter 2: Installation

Caution: Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Attention: Le remplacement de la batterie par une batterie de type incorrect peut provoquer un danger d’explosion. La remplacer uniquement par une batterie du même type ou de type équivalent recommandée par le constructeur. Les batteries doivent être éliminées conformément aux instructions du constructeur. E22

Warning: For centralized DC power connection, install only in a restricted access area. E23

A tray cable is required to connect the power source if the unit is powered by centralized DC power. The tray cable must be a UL listed Type TC tray cable and rated at 600 V and 90 degrees C, with three conductors, minimum 14 AWG. E24

Warning: Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not created due to uneven mechanical loading. E25

Warning: Remove all metal jewelry, such as rings and watches, before installing or removing a line card from apowered-onchassis. E26

Warning: This unit might have more than one power source. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect all power sources before servicing the unit. E30

If installed in a closed or multi-unitrack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the room ambient temperature. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra). E35

Caution: Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised. E36

Warning: Reliable earthing ofrack-mountedequipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuits (e.g., use of power strips). E37

Warning: Circuit breaker is used as a disconnection device. Tode-energizeequipment, shut down the circuit breaker and then disconnect the input wire. E38
