Observing ESD and Handling Precautions


Caution  - Damage to the Converged Network Adapter can occur as the result of careless handling or electrostatic discharge (ESD). Always handle the adapter with care to avoid damage to electrostatic sensitive components.

To minimize the possibility of ESD-related damage, use both a workstation antistatic mat and an ESD wrist strap. You can get an ESD wrist strap from any reputable electronics store or from Oracle as part number 250-1007. Observe the following precautions to avoid ESD-related problems:

  • Leave the adapter in its antistatic bag until you are ready to install it in the system.

  • Always use a properly fitted and grounded wrist strap or other suitable ESD protection when handling the adapter and observe proper ESD grounding techniques.

  • Hold the adapter by the edge of the board, not the connectors.

  • Place the adapter on a properly grounded antistatic work surface pad when it is out of its protective antistatic bag.
