Electrostatic Discharge Precautions

Always follow electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions to avoid injury and damage to Storage Center equipment.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical charges coming into contact with each other. The resulting electrical discharge can damage electronic components and printed circuit boards. Follow these guidelines to protect your equipment from ESD:
  • Dell recommends that you always use a static mat and static strap while working on components in the interior of the chassis.
  • Observe all conventional ESD precautions when handling plug-in modules and components.
  • Use a suitable ESD wrist or ankle strap.
  • Avoid contact with backplane components and module connectors.
  • Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic bags until ready for use.
