Self and Equipment safey is very important part of network Deployment, One Must Always follow following Precautions to avoid any miss-hap during Network Equipment installations. 

Enviromental Precautions :

Ensure the installation environment comply with equipment specifications, including the voltage, temperature, humidity, altitude, pollution degree, overvoltage category , and waterproof and dustproof classification. 

 Do not place the equipment in a flammable, explosive gas or smog environment, or perform any operation in such environment.  Keep acidic, alkaline or other corrosive gases away from the installation site. 

 Keep the equipment away from sources of heat or fire, such as the electric heater, microwave oven, oven, water heater, fireplace fire, candle or other places that may Safety Information generate high temperatures. Otherwise, equipment housing will melt or the equipment will be heated and cause a fire.

  When the equipment is running, do not obscure or cover it with flammables, such as paper and cotton fabrics. Otherwise, heat dissipation of the equipment fails, which will cause housing deformation and a fire.

  The equipment (or system) must be installed and used in specified areas. 

 Do not block air vents when the equipment is running. Keep air vents at a distance from the wall or other objects that block the air vents as required in the Hardware Installation and Maintenance Guide. The minimum distance is generally 5 cm if it is not specified. 

 The equipment that cannot meet IP54 waterproof and dustproof standard cannot be used in outdoor environments. 

 Indoor Installation Precautions :

  Ensure there is no water penetration, leakage or condensation (in case of air conditioner failure in the equipment room) on the equipment top. Otherwise, water may flow into the equipment, causing equipment failure. 

 If fixed equipment has a large hole at the bottom, the equipment must be installed on concrete, tile or non- combustible surface. 

 Prevent rats and pests from the installation site. 

Wall Installation 

 Before drilling holes on the wall, ensure there is no circuit, water conduit or gas pipeline in the wall area to be drilled to avoid body injury.

  Do not place any flammables or explosive objects above or under the equipment, and do not obscure the equipment with foreign objects within 1 m scope. 

 In wall installation mode, ensure no hole facing upwards to prevent water ingress and equipment damage. 

 Ensure screws are securely installed. Otherwise, the equipment may fall due to tension after cable connection, causing equipment damage or even personnel injury. 

Desktop Installation 

 Ensure that the desk or workbench is stable and well grounded. 

 Do not put sundries on the equipment. 

 Do not place cups filled with liquid on or next to the equipment. Otherwise, liquid may flow into the equipment and pose safety risks. If any sundries or liquid enters the equipment, immediately stop the equipment, cut off the power supply, remove all cables connected to the equipment, and contact after-sales personnel.

Cabinet Installation

  Before installing the equipment in a cabinet, ensure the cabinet is securely fastened to prevent incline or fall due to unbalanced center of gravity. Otherwise, it may cause personnel injury and equipment damage.

 Leave proper gaps around the equipment. 

 For an enclosed cabinet, ensure adequate ventilation of the cabinet. 

Outdoor Installation Precautions :

 Installation, operation, and maintenance of outdoor equipment and cables are strictly forbidden in lightning, rainy, snowy, windy (wind force > 6) and other adverse weather conditions.

 The IP class of enclosure of outdoor equipment must be IP54 or higher. 

Installation at Heights 

 Work performed 2 m above the ground is regarded as work at heights.

 Stop work at heights if any of the following conditions occurs: adverse weather conditions such as lightning, rain, snow, wind (wind force > 6), steel tube still wet, and other conditions inducing dangers. If any of the preceding conditions occurs, work can resume only after a Huawei safety director and related technical personnel check all the equipment.
