ESD Safety Measures

Electrostatic discharge sensitive devices, such as the motherboard, PCI cards, hard drives, and memory modules require special handling.


Caution - Circuit boards and hard drives contain electronic components that are extremely sensitive to static electricity. Ordinary amounts of static electricity from clothing or the work environment can destroy the components located on these boards. Do not touch the components along their connector edges.


Caution - You must disconnect all system power supplies before servicing any of the components documented in this chapter.

Antistatic Wrist Strap

Wear an antistatic wrist strap (provided) when handling ESD-sensitive components.

Antistatic Mat

Place ESD-sensitive components such as motherboards, memory, and other PCBs on an antistatic mat (not provided).
