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. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive devices, such as the drives, require special handling.
Place ESD-sensitive components and other PCBs on an antistatic mat (not provided).
Wear an antistatic wrist strap when handling ESD-sensitive components.
Caution - Possible component damage. Do not touch components along connector edges.
