    Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit. Always check. Handling safety When you move an HP A10500 switch, follow these guidelines: Remove all external cables, including the power cords, before moving the chassis. Moving the chassis requires at least two persons, and you can use a mechanical lift as needed.
  • Page 9: Laser Safety

    Examining the installation site The HP A10500 Switch Series must be used indoors. To ensure normal operation and long service life of your switch, the installation site must meet the requirements in this section. Floor loading Ensure that the floor can support the total weight of the rack, chassis, cards, power supplies, and all other components.
  • Page 10: Cleanness

    Table 10 Humidity requirements Humidity Range Operating humidity 10% to 95%, noncondensing Storage humidity 5% to 95%, noncondensing Cleanness Dust buildup on the chassis may result in electrostatic adsorption, which causes poor contact of metal components and contact points. In the worst case, electrostatic adsorption can cause communication failure.
  • Page 11: Grounding

    Grounding Using a good grounding system to protect your switch against lightning shocks, interferences, and ESD is essential to the operating reliability of your switch.

If the software version is incompatible with the card, upgrade the software to a compatible version. Calculate the overall power consumption, and make sure that your power supplies can provide enough power.
  • Page 52 NOTE: A combo interface is a logical interface that comprises one fiber port (Gigabit/100-Mbps SFP port) and one copper port (10/100/1000Base-T GE port). The two ports share one interface view and cannot work simultaneously. When you use the combo enable { copper | fiber } command to enable one port, the other port is disabled automatically.

  • Page 87: Appendix E Cabling Recommendations

    Appendix E Cabling recommendations When an A10500 switch is mounted in a 19-inch standard rack, the interface cables are routed through the cable management brackets, bound at cabling racks on chassis sides, and then routed up or down to pass through the chassis top or the raised floor, depending on the available equipment room condition. The power cables run along the two sides of the chassis and out of the chassis either from the chassis top or the raised floor depending on the equipment room conditions (power distribution cabinet, lightning protection box, and connector strip, etc.) of the exchange office.
  • Page 88 Figure 47 Cable binding example 1 Different cables (power, signal, and grounding cables) should be routed and bound separately rather than together in the rack. If they are close to each other, you can route them in cross-shape. For parallel routing, the space between power cable and signal cable should be no less than 30 mm (1.18 in).
  • Page 89 Figure 49 Cable binding example 3 The spare cables or excessive cable parts should be folded and bound and placed at a right place in the rack or on the cable routing slot. A “right place” refers to the place where the cables will not affect the operation of the switch or impair the switch, or be damaged.

    When most part of the chassis is removed from the slide rails, lift up the chassis by holding the handles at the chassis sides to completely remove the chassis from the rack. IMPORTANT: Because the HP A10500 Switch Series is heavy, HP recommends you to move the switch with a mechanical lift.
