Electrostatic sensitive devices can be labeled with an appropriate symbol.
Electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD)
When you touch electrostatic sensitive components, you can destroy them through voltages
that are far below the human perception threshold.
If you work with components that can be destroyed by electrostatic discharge, observe the
ESD Guideline (Page 90).
Siemens provides products and solutions with industrial security functions that support the
secure operation of plants, systems, machines and networks.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is
necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial
security concept. Siemens' products and solutions only form one element of such a concept.
Customer is responsible to prevent unauthorized access to its plants, systems, machines
and networks. Systems, machines and components should only be connected to the
enterprise network or the internet if and to the extent necessary and with appropriate security
measures (e.g. use of firewalls and network segmentation) in place.
Additionally, Siemens' guidance on appropriate security measures should be taken into
account. For more information about industrial security, please visit
Siemens' products and solutions undergo continuous development to make them more
secure. Siemens strongly recommends to apply product updates as soon as available and to
always use the latest product versions. Use of product versions that are no longer supported,
and failure to apply latest updates may increase customer's exposure to cyber threats.
