C Electrostatic discharge and grounding recommendations

Electrostatic discharge recommendations

when setting up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other
conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage can
reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
Always make sure you are properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or

Grounding methods

There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling
or installing electrostatic sensitive parts:
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis.
Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ± 10 percent resistance in the
ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both
feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
Use conductive field service tools.
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat. If you do not have
any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an HP authorized reseller install
the part.
contact your HP authorized reseller.
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow
