The section contains important electrostatic discharge and antistatic information.
Caution - Component damage. Circuit boards and 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. As a minimum precaution, do not touch the component's connector edges.
Wear an antistatic wrist strap and use an antistatic mat when handling components such as storage drive assemblies, circuit boards (including DIMMs), or PCIe cards. When servicing or removing server components, place an antistatic strap to your wrist and attach the clip end to a bare metal area on the chassis. Following this practice equalizes the electrical potentials between you and the server. Addtionally, always place ESD-sensitive components an antistatic mat or antistatic packaging.
Note - An antistatic wrist strap is not included in the accessory kit for the Sun Blade X3-2B. However, antistatic wrist straps are included with optional components.
