All rights reserved.</p> <p>SAFETY</p> <p>Safety PrecautionsThe following warnings describe circumstances under which there is risk of electric shock, bodily injury, fire, damage to Isilon IQ systems, or loss of data. Failure to heed these warnings may void the product warranty. The ambient temperature of the environment in which a Isilon IQ node operates should not exceed the maximum rated ambient temperature: 35 C, 95 F. Proper airflow must be provided to the Isilon nodes. The AC supply circuit for the Isilon node must be capable of supplying the total current specified on the label of the node. All AC power supply connections must be properly grounded. Pay particularly close attention to connections that are not directly connected to the branch circuit (for example, a node connected to a power strip). Do not overload the branch circuit of the AC supply that provides power to the rack holding the Isilon nodes. The total rack load should not exceed 80% of the branch circuit rating. To help protect your system from sudden increases or decreases in electrical power, use a surge suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Close front panels gently. Slamming the front panel may cause damage to hard drives, loss of data or data integrity, and may void the product warranty. When installing Isilon nodes in a rack, always use both front and side stabilizers. Installing Isilon nodes in a rack without these stabilizers could cause the rack to tip over, potentially resulting in bodily injury. Due to the weight of each Isilon IQ node, a minimum of two people should install them into a rack.</p> <p>Isilon IQ User Guide v4.5 2001 - 2006 Isilon Systems, Inc.
