All peripheral devices and measuring and service equipment that are used in conjunction with the network element. or in the exchange room in general. follow strictly the instructions given in the user manuals. Hazardous voltages are present within the system. In this case the network element includes a warning label about high leakage current. A B HAZARDOUS ENERGY LEVEL 2400 VA / CIRCUIT BREAKER GROUP C HAZARDOUS ENERGY LEVEL: 600 VA ENERGY HAZARD EXISTS BELOW THIS COVER.Warnings and Cautions Warnings 2 Warnings The main types of hardware-related warnings fall into the following categories: • • • • Electricity Weight of network elements or parts of network elements Sharp edges Chemical Hazardous voltages f Danger of hazardous voltages and electric shock! When grounding (earthing) the network element. Make sure that persons who perform maintenance or commissioning measures on the equipment are aware of this danger. must be powered by an isolating transformer in order to protect the operation and maintenance personnel against the danger of an electric shock. there is a risk of high leakage current. DN70219408 Id:0900d805804498d4 Confidential 7 . Hazardous voltages can be induced if the equipment is not grounded correctly. the distributors and Power Supply units are provided with special warning labels attached. For this reason. The risk of accessing hazardous energy levels mainly applies to the power distribution system and the Power Supply units in the cabinets. REFER TO USER MANUAL DN98172551 Figure 1 Labels indicating hazardous voltages High leakage current If the network element uses AC power. described in the following figure. Ensure that all ground connections are secure. Elsewhere in the system the risk is minimal if the electricity and ground connections are secure and correct and the equipment is in good condition. Take the following precautions to minimise the risk of an electrical shock: • • Ensure that the applicable safety precautions for high voltage are implemented before attempting to work on the hardware of the system with the power connected.

Also the ground point of each chassis must be connected to the cabinet grounding busbar. To prevent the equipment touchable parts from becoming a safety hazard. Precautions for lead acid batteries f Danger of physical injury! The batteries contain highly corrosive acid. EARTH CONNECTION ESSENTIAL BEFORE CONNECTING SUPPLY. As indicated by the sign at the rear of the AC power entry module. Follow local safety regulations and specific safety precautions provided by the manufacturer when doing any maintenance or installation work with the batteries. Lead acid batteries might be used to power the equipment. the chassis must be grounded to the site protective earth.Warnings Warnings and Cautions f High leakage current hazard. see the Technical Specification of the cabinet in question. 8 Id:0900d805804498d4 Confidential DN70219408 .

The battery compartment (room) must be well ventilated to remove any flammable gas. EN 60950 and UL 60950. observe all local regulations concerning their disposal. lifting. and they may emit flammable hydrogen gas. The batteries should be mounted over a basin or precautions should be taken to control any spilled acid. Observe local regulations as well as battery manufacturers' cautions and warnings. Cabinet weight f The cabinets are heavy. For detailed information on cabinet weight. The disposal of lead acid batteries is subject to the control of substances hazardous to health. Therefore. The fluids contained in the batteries are a health hazard. HIGH LEAKAGE CURRENT. and lining up cabinets requires two persons. the AC power entry module AC/DC power supplies exhibit a leakage current (also known as touch current) that exceeds the requirement given in IEC 60950. Make sure the equipment is grounded before connecting the AC power supply. which is avoided only by the proper grounding of the cabinet. there is a high leakage current hazard.

In this case the equipment is provided with warning stickers of the type shown below: WARNING THE EDGES OF CONTACT STRIP AROUND THE DOOR ARE SHARP DN98172563 Figure 3 Cabinet door warning label DN70219408 Id:0900d805804498d4 Confidential 9 .Warnings and Cautions Warnings Sharp edges f Risk of physical injury! Parts of the equipment can have sharp edges.

Part 15. and maintains traceability. f Risk of damage to equipment. Subpart B. the shipping container may not be exposed to rain. The authority to operate this equipment is conditioned by the requirement that no modifications will be made to the equipment unless the changes or modifications are expressly approved in writing by Nokia Siemens Networks. This reduces the risk of mechanical damage. see the Site Requirements for the specific network element. as stated in the Installation Site Requirements. Minimum air pressure during transportation is 70 kPa (which corresponds to an altitude of 3000 m). Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference. and can radiate radio frequency energy and. and the equipment shall without delay be placed indoors in an environment that meets the operation conditions. Unintentional Radiators. f Risk of damage to equipment.Cautions Warnings and Cautions 3 Cautions Storage and transportation f Keep the equipment in its original package during storage and transportation. The network elements endure electromagnetic interference occurring in normal installation sites. When transported to a location that is above 3000 m. The emission of electromagnetic interference does not exceed the corresponding limits. If the network element cabinet includes doors. keep the doors closed during normal operation. the equipment must be kept in a place which fulfils the environmental requirements for stationary use. to guarantee the integrity of the humidity seal. 1999. pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) The network elements are compliant with the EMC directive 89/336/EEC and they are tested to meet the requirements of ETSI EN 300 386 (harmonised product family standard). See the documentation of the network element in question for more information on the effect the doors have on EMI protection. They are also tested to meet the requirements set in FCC Rules Title 47. g This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. it may cause harmful interference to radio communications. in which case the user is required to correct the interference to radio communications at his own expense.

Installation and maintenance f Risk of damage to equipment and disruption of traffic. Make sure that each plug-in unit/blade is placed in the slot designed for it. keep the doors closed during normal operation and when unattended in order to ensure efficient protection against fire propagation.possibly after a considerable period of time. Information security If the network element cabinet includes doors. follow strictly the instructions given in the user manuals. Equipment traceability and identification t The plug-in units or blades are delivered with product identification labels which are permanently attached to them and designed to last throughout the design life of the network element. keep the doors locked during normal operation and when unattended in order to restrict access to sensitive information. DN70219408 Id:0900d8058043c0cb Confidential 11 . it can cause serious damages to the equipment or malfunction of the equipment . f Incorrect installation and uninstallation can damage circuits or shorten their lifetime. Follow strictly the Installation Instructions when installing or maintaining the equipment. When grounding (earthing) the network element. f Placing a plug-in unit/blade in a wrong slot may damage the unit when the power is switched on. Ensure that product identification labels are in their places. Failure to follow the instructions may be dangerous to the installation personnel. In the case of a power supply or other malfunction in the unit.Warnings and Cautions Cautions Fire safety If the network element cabinet includes doors. refer to the description of the unit concerned.

Wear an ESD wrist strap or use a corresponding method when handling the units. The human body should be earthed at the same potential as the component or equipment being handled. An Electrostatic sensitive device is an electronic component that may be permanently damaged by electrostatic charges encountered in routine handling. An ESD wrist strap creates an equipotential electrical connection between the object and the person. the acquired potential is discharged. testing. and do not touch the connector surfaces. and transportation.
