document gives you basic unpacking, configuration and installation information
for hardware upgrades to your ImageStream router. Only authorized service personnel
should perform these procedures. Follow all standard safety and ESD precautions
when servicing the server. See "Static Electricity Precautions" below for more
information on ESD precautions.
Take care when handling any eletronic
components. The active components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge
(ESD), and can easily be damaged. ImageStream recommends that you use an antistatic
wrist strap when handling SBCs, WAN cards, processors, memory and any associated
components. Also, follow these rules:
a grounding wrist strap (available at most electronic stores).
off the system power.
- Touch the back of the power supply fan, located
on the back of the case.
- Unplug all cords from electrical
- Remove the system cover only after completing the above steps.
- Avoid static-causing surfaces such as plastic and styrofoam in your work
- Remove the parts from their antistatic bags only when you are ready
to use them. Do not place parts on the outside of static bags, since only the
inside provides antistatic protection.
- Always hold cards by their edges
and their metal mounting bracket. Always hold processors and memory by their edges
only. Avoid touching components on the cards and the edge connectors that connect
to the expansion slots.
- Never slide cards or other parts over any surface.
Unpacking Your Hardware
If the shipping carton
is damaged when you receive it, request that the carrier's agent be present during
the unpacking and inspection of the equipment. Unpack the equipment from the shipping
carton. Refer to the packing list and verify that all items are present. Save
the packing material for storing and reshipping of equipment.

can damage circuits.
Before Installing the Hardware
removing the hardware from its packaging:
- Check for obvious physical
- For single-board computers, verify that the coin cell battery
is in its holder, and that the system memory, processor(s) and flash device and
Make sure that you disconnect
the chassis from the main power supply before you continue.
PCI expansion cards, PCI SBCs
WAN cards and SBCs fit into standard 64-bit or 32-bit standard PICMG connectors
on the backplane or mainboard of your router. The card secures to the system enclosure
by one slot cover. Your backplane or mainboard may have several slots for the
installation of expansion cards. Expansion cards can be extremely sensitive to
ESD and require careful handling. After removing the card from its protective
wrapper or from the system board, place it component-side up on a grounded, static-free
surface or conductive foam pad. Do not slide the card over any surface.

- Remove the expansion card from its protective
wrapper. Be careful not to touch the components or the gold-edge connectors.

- If replacing
a card, remove the mounting screw and firmly and evenly pull the card to be replaced
directly up and out of the chassis.

expansion slot on the backplane or mainboard. The tapered foot of the board retaining
bracket must fit into the empty slot in the chassis frame.

Replacing the On-board Lithium Battery
not service or replace the lithium battery in the field. Contact ImageStream
Technical Support to arrange for service or battery replacement.
you must replace the lithium battery use the following guidelines:
replacing the battery, you must apply power to the board to prevent data loss.
- Dangerous voltages, capable of causing death, are present in this equipment.
Use extreme caution when handling, testing and adjusting.
- Lithium batteries
incorporate flammable materials such as lithium and organic solvents. If lithium
batteries are mistreated or handled incorrectly, they may burst open and ignite.
This can result in injury and/or fire. When dealing with lithium batteries, carefully
follow the precautions listed below to prevent accidents.
- Do not short-circuit.
- Do not disassemble, deform or apply excessive pressure.
- Do not
heat or incinerate.
- Do not apply solder directly.
- Do not use
different models, or new and old batteries together.
- Do not charge.
check proper polarity.
To replace the on-board backup battery, follow
the steps below.
- There is danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly
replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the equipment
manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Attach an ESD strap to your wrist. Attach the other end of the ESD strap
to the chassis as a ground. Secure the ESD strap to you wrist and to ground throughout
- To remove the battery from the module, carefully pull
the battery from the socket.
- Before installing a new battery, make sure
the battery pins are clean.
- Note the battery polarity and press the new
battery into the socket.
- Avoid touching areas of integrated circuitry.
Static discharge can damage circuits.
- No soldering is required when the
battery is in the socket.
