SC5020 and SC5020F Storage System Owner’s Manual

General Safety Precautions

Always follow general safety precautions to avoid injury and damage to Storage Center equipment.

  • Keep the area around the storage system chassis clean and free of clutter.
  • Place any system components that have been removed away from the storage system chassis or on a table so that they are not in the way of other people.
  • While working on the storage system chassis, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and unbuttoned shirt sleeves. These items can come into contact with electrical circuits or be pulled into a cooling fan.
  • Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body. These items are excellent metal conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
  • Do not lift the storage system chassis by the handles of the power supply units (PSUs). They are not designed to hold the weight of the entire chassis, and the chassis cover could become bent.
  • Before moving the storage system chassis, remove the PSUs to minimize weight.
  • Do not remove drives until you are ready to replace them.
  • NOTE: To ensure proper storage system cooling, hard drive blanks must be installed in any hard drive slot that is not occupied.
