A danger of explosion exists if the Onboard battery is installed upside down, which reverses its
polarities. This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type that is
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the battery
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical charges when they come
into contact with each other. An ESD neutralizes this difference, which can damage electronic components
and printed circuit boards (PCBs). In general, the following measures are sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect equipment from ESD:
v Use a grounded wrist strap that is designed to prevent ESDs.
v Keep all components in their antistatic containers until ready for installation.
v Touch a grounded metal object before you remove any board from its antistatic container.
v Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body. They 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.
