Caution notices for the system

Ensure that you understand the caution notices for the system.

Use the reference numbers in parentheses at the end of each notice (for example, D005) to find the matching translated notice in IBM Systems Safety Notices.

The battery contains lithium. To avoid possible explosion, do not burn or charge the battery.

Do not: Throw or immerse into water, heat to more than 100°C (212°F), repair or disassemble. (C003)


Two of three graphics depict a heavy box being carried by three persons; the other graphic depicts an icon of a lifting device and a text label that the part or unit weighs more than 55 kg (121.2 lb)
The weight of this part or unit is more than 55 kg (121.2 lb). It takes specially trained persons, a lifting device, or both to safely lift this part or unit. (C011)
To avoid personal injury, before lifting this unit, remove all appropriate subassemblies per instructions to reduce the system weight. (C012)
CAUTION regarding IBM provided VENDOR LIFT TOOL:
  • Operation of LIFT TOOL by authorized personnel only
  • LIFT TOOL intended for use to assist, lift, install, remove units (load) up into rack elevations. It is not to be used loaded transporting over major ramps nor as a replacement for such designated tools like pallet jacks, walkies, fork trucks and such related relocation practices. When this is not practicable, specially trained persons or services must be used (for instance, riggers or movers). Read and completely understand the contents of LIFT TOOL operator's manual before using.
  • Read and completely understand the contents of LIFT TOOL operator's manual before using. Failure to read, understand, obey safety rules, and follow instructions may result in property damage and/or personal injury. If there are questions, contact the vendor's service and support. Local paper manual must remain with machine in provided storage sleeve area. Latest revision manual available on vendor's website.
  • Test verify stabilizer brake function before each use. Do not over-force moving or rolling the LIFT TOOL with stabilizer brake engaged.
  • Do not raise, lower or slide platform load shelf unless stabilizer (brake pedal jack) is fully engaged. Keep stabilizer brake engaged when not in use or motion.
  • Do not move LIFT TOOL while platform is raised, except for minor positioning.
  • Do not exceed rated load capacity. See LOAD CAPACITY CHART regarding maximum loads at center versus edge of extended platform.
  • Only raise load if properly centered on platform. Do not place more than 200 lb (91 kg) on edge of sliding platform shelf also considering the load's center of mass/gravity (CoG).
  • Do not corner load the platform tilt riser accessory option. Secure platform riser tilt option to main shelf in all four (4x) locations with provided hardware only, prior to use. Load objects are designed to slide on/off smooth platforms without appreciable force, so take care not to push or lean. Keep riser tilt option flat at all times except for final minor adjustment when needed.
  • Do not stand under overhanging load.
  • Do not use on uneven surface, incline or decline (major ramps).
  • Do not stack loads.
  • Do not operate while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Do not support ladder against LIFT TOOL.
  • Tipping hazard. Do not push or lean against load with raised platform.
  • Do not use as a personnel lifting platform or step. No riders.
  • Do not stand on any part of lift. Not a step.
  • Do not climb on mast.
  • Do not operate a damaged or malfunctioning LIFT TOOL machine.
  • Crush and pinch point hazard below platform. Only lower load in areas clear of personnel and obstructions. Keep hands and feet clear during operation.
  • No Forks. Never lift or move bare LIFT TOOL MACHINE with pallet truck, jack or fork lift.
  • Mast extends higher than platform. Be aware of ceiling height, cable trays, sprinklers, lights, and other overhead objects.
  • Do not leave LIFT TOOL machine unattended with an elevated load.
  • Watch and keep hands, fingers, and clothing clear when equipment is in motion.
  • Turn Winch with hand power only. If winch handle cannot be cranked easily with one hand, it is probably over-loaded. Do not continue to turn winch past top or bottom of platform travel. Excessive unwinding will detach handle and damage cable. Always hold handle when lowering, unwinding. Always assure self that winch is holding load before releasing winch handle.
  • A winch accident could cause serious injury. Not for moving humans. Make certain clicking sound is heard as the equipment is being raised. Be sure winch is locked in position before releasing handle. Read instruction page before operating this winch. Never allow winch to unwind freely. Freewheeling will cause uneven cable wrapping around winch drum, damage cable, and may cause serious injury. (C048)
Removing components from the upper positions in the rack cabinet improves rack stability during a relocation. Follow these general guidelines whenever you relocate a populated rack cabinet within a room or building.
  • Reduce the weight of the rack cabinet by removing equipment starting at the top of the rack cabinet. When possible, restore the rack cabinet to the configuration of the rack cabinet as you received it. If this configuration is not known, you must observe the following precautions.
    • Remove all devices in the 32U position and above.
    • Ensure that the heaviest devices are installed in the bottom of the rack cabinet.
    • Ensure that there are no empty U-levels between devices installed in the rack cabinet below the 32U level.
  • If the rack cabinet you are relocating is part of a suite of rack cabinets, detach the rack cabinet from the suite.
  • If the rack cabinet you are relocating was supplied with removable outriggers they must be reinstalled before the cabinet is relocated.
  • Inspect the route that you plan to take to eliminate potential hazards.
  • Verify that the route that you choose can support the weight of the loaded rack cabinet. Refer to the documentation that comes with your rack cabinet for the weight of a loaded rack cabinet.
  • Verify that all door openings are at least 760 x 230 mm (30 x 80 in.).
  • Ensure that all devices, shelves, drawers, doors, and cables are secure.
  • Ensure that the four leveling pads are raised to their highest position.
  • Ensure that there is no stabilizer bracket installed on the rack cabinet during movement.
  • Do not use a ramp inclined at more than 10 degrees.
  • When the rack cabinet is in the new location, complete the following steps:
    • Lower the four leveling pads.
    • Install stabilizer brackets on the rack cabinet.
    • If you removed any devices from the rack cabinet, repopulate the rack cabinet from the lowest position to the highest position.
  • If a long-distance relocation is required, restore the rack cabinet to the configuration of the rack cabinet as you received it. Pack the rack cabinet in the original packaging material, or equivalent. Also lower the leveling pads to raise the casters off the pallet and bolt the rack cabinet to the pallet. (R002)
