If equipment described in this guide is used in a manner not specified by Dell, the protection provided by the equipment could be impaired. For your safety and protection, observe the rules described in the following sections.

Installation Safety Precautions

Follow these safety precautions when installing an SC5020 series storage system:
  • Dell recommends that only individuals with rack-mounting experience install an SC5020 series storage system in a rack.
  • When installing multiple expansion enclosures in a rack, fill the rack from the bottom up and empty the rack from the top down.
  • The rack construction must support the total weight of the installed expansion enclosures. The design should incorporate stabilizing features suitable to prevent the rack from tipping or being pushed over during installation or in normal use.
  • To prevent the rack from tipping, slide only one storage system out of the rack at a time.
  • Make sure that the storage system is always fully grounded to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge.
  • When handling the storage system components, use an electrostatic wrist guard or a similar form of protection.
