Safety Instructions

Safety Instructions

Before You Begin

Before handling the product, read the instructions and safety guidelines on the following pages to prevent damage to the product and to ensure your own personal safety. Refer to the “Advisories” section in the Preface for advisory conventions used in this user’s guide, including the distinction between Warnings, Cautions, Important Notes, and Notes.

Always use caution when handling/operating a computer. Only qualified, experienced, authorized electronics service personnel should access the interior of a computer. The power supplies produce high voltages and energy hazards, which can cause bodily harm.

Use extreme caution when installing or removing components. Refer to the installation instructions in this user’s guide for precautions and procedures. If you have any questions, please contact Quanmax Post-Sales Technical Support.

WARNING

High voltages are present inside the chassis when the unit’s power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. Turn off system power, turn off the power supply, and then disconnect the power cord from its source before removing the chassis cover. Turning off the system power switch does not remove power to components.

When Working Inside a Computer

Before taking covers off a computer, perform the following steps:

1.Turn off the computer and any peripherals.

2.Disconnect the computer and peripherals from their power sources or subsystems to prevent electric shock or system board damage. This does not apply when hot swapping parts.

KEMX-2030 User’s Manual

Safety Instructions

3.Follow the guidelines provided in “Preventing Electrostatic Discharge” on the following page.

4.Disconnect any telephone or telecommunications lines from the computer.

In addition, take note of these safety guidelines when appropriate:

To help avoid possible damage to system boards, wait five seconds after turning off the computer before removing a component, removing a system board, or disconnecting a peripheral device from the computer.

When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain-relief loop, not on the cable itself. Some cables have a connector with locking tabs. If you are disconnecting this type of cable, press in on the locking tabs before disconnecting the cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep them evenly aligned to avoid bending any connector pins. Also, before connecting a cable, make sure both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.

CAUTION

Do not attempt to service the system yourself except as explained in this user’s guide. Follow installation and troubleshooting instructions closely.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge

Static electricity can harm system boards. Perform service at an ESD workstation and follow proper ESD procedure to reduce the risk of damage to components. Quanmax strongly encourages you to follow proper ESD procedure, which can include wrist straps and smocks, when servicing equipment.

You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):

When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the component’s antistatic packing material until you are ready to install the component in a computer. Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure you are at an ESD workstation or grounded. This will discharge any static electricity that may have built up in your body.

When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container

KEMX-2030 User’s Manual

Safety Instructions

or packaging.

Handle all sensitive components at an ESD workstation. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and workbench pads.

Handle components and boards with care. Don’t touch the components or contacts on a board. Hold a board by its edges or by its metal mounting bracket.

Do not handle or store system boards near strong electrostatic, electromagnetic, magnetic, or radioactive fields.

Maintaining Your Computer

Environmental Factors

Temperature

The ambient temperature within an enclosure may be greater than room ambient temperature. Installation in an enclosure should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation is not compromised.

Consideration should be given to the maximum rated ambient temperature.

Overheating can cause a variety of problems, including premature aging and failure of chips or mechanical failure of devices.

If the system has been exposed to abnormally cold temperatures, allow a two-hour warm-up period to bring it up to normal operating temperature before turning it on. Failure to do so may cause damage to internal components, particularly the hard disk drive.

Humidity

High-humidity can cause moisture to enter and accumulate in the system. This moisture can cause corrosion of internal components and degrade such

KEMX-2030 User’s Manual

13

Preface

properties as electrical resistance and thermal conductivity. Extreme moisture buildup inside the system can result in electrical shorts, which can cause serious damage to the system.

Buildings in which climate is controlled usually maintain an acceptable level of humidity for system equipment. However, if a system is located in an unusually humid location, a dehumidifier can be used to maintain the humidity within an acceptable range. Refer to the “Specifications” section of this user’s guide for the operating and storage humidity specifications.

Altitude

Operating a system at a high altitude (low pressure) reduces the efficiency of the cooling fans to cool the system. This can cause electrical problems related to arcing and corona effects. This condition can also cause sealed components with internal pressure, such as electrolytic capacitors, to fail or perform at reduced efficiency.

Power Protection

The greatest threats to a system’s supply of power are power loss, power spikes, and power surges caused by electrical storms, which interrupt system operation and/or damage system components. To protect your system, always properly ground power cables and one of the following devices.

Surge Protector

Surge protectors are available in a variety of types and usually provide a level of protection proportional with the cost of the device. Surge protectors prevent voltage spikes from entering a system through the AC power cord. Surge protectors, however, do not offer protection against brownouts, which occur when the voltage drops more than 20 percent below the normal AC line voltage level.

Line Conditioner

Line conditioners go beyond the over voltage protection of surge protectors. Line conditioners keep a system’s AC power source voltage at a fairly constant level and, therefore, can handle brownouts. Because of this added protection, line conditioners cost more than surge protectors. However, line conditioners cannot protect against a complete loss of power.

Uninterruptible Power Supply

KEMX-2030 User’s Manual

14

Preface

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems offer the most complete protection against variations on power because they use battery power to keep the server running when AC power is lost. The battery is charged by the AC power while it is available, so when AC power is lost, the battery can provide power to the system for a limited amount of time, depending on the UPS system.

UPS systems range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, with the more expensive unit s allowing you to run larger systems for a longer period of time when AC power is lost. UPS systems that provide only 5 minutes of battery power let you conduct an orderly shutdown of the system, but are not intended to provide continued operation. Surge protectors should be used with all UPS systems, and the UPS system should be Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety approved.
