Safety Information

For your protection, observe these safety precautions when setting up your equipment:

  • Follow all cautions and instructions marked on the equipment.

  • Follow all cautions and instructions described in the documentation that shipped with your server module and in the SPARC T5-1B Server Module Safety and Compliance Guide.

  • Ensure that the voltage and frequency of your power source match the voltage and frequency inscribed on the equipment's electrical rating label.

  • Follow the ESD safety practices as described in this section.

Safety Symbols

You might see these symbols in various places in the server module documentation. Note the explanations provided next to each symbol.


Caution  - There is a risk of personal injury or equipment damage. To avoid personal injury and equipment damage, follow the instructions.


Caution  - Components inside the server module might be hot. Use caution when servicing components inside the server module.


Caution  - Hazardous voltages are present. To reduce the risk of electric shock and danger to personal health, follow the instructions.

ESD Measures

ESD sensitive devices, such as the motherboard, cards, drives, and DIMMs require special handling.


Caution  - 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. Do not touch the components along their connector edges.

Antistatic Wrist Strap Use

Wear an antistatic wrist strap and use an antistatic mat when handling components such as drive assemblies, circuit boards, or PCI cards. When servicing or removing server module components, attach an antistatic strap to your wrist and then to a metal area on the chassis. Following this practice equalizes the electrical potentials between you and the server module.

Antistatic Mat

Place ESD-sensitive components such as cards and DIMMs on an antistatic mat.
