Caution - The 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 components. Do not touch the components along their connector edges.
Do the following when handling ESD-sensitive components:
Use an antistatic wrist strap.
Wear an antistatic wrist strap and use an antistatic mat when handling components such as drive assemblies, boards, or cards. When servicing or removing controller components, attach an antistatic strap to your wrist and then to a metal area on the chassis. Then disconnect the power cords from the controller. Following this practice equalizes the electrical potentials between you and the controller.
Use an antistatic mat.
