QUALITY OF MATERIAL
Material used for replacement, repair, or modification must meet the requirements of this manual. If quality of
material requirements are not stated in this manual, the material must meet the requirements of the drawings,
standards, specifications, or approved engineering change proposals applicable to the subject equipment.
SAFETY, CARE, AND HANDLING
The following procedures should be observed when handling all Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) sensitive compo-
nents and units containing such components. Failure to observe all of these precautions can cause permanent
damage to the electrostatic device. This damage can cause the device to fail immediately or at a later date when
exposed to an adverse environment.
1. Turn off and /or disconnect all power, signal sources, and loads used with the unit.
2. Place the unit on a grounded, non-conductive work surface.
3. Ground the repair operator using a non-conductive wrist strap or other device using 1 megaohm series
resistor to protect the operator.
4. Ground any tools (including soldering equipment) that will contact the unit. Contact with the operator's hand
provides a sufficient ground for tools that are otherwise electrically isolated.
5. All electrostatic sensitive replacement components are shipped in non-conductive foam or tubes and must
be stored in the original shipping container until installed.
6. When these devices and assemblies are removed from the unit, they should be placed on the non-conduc-
tive work surface or in non-conductive containers.
7. When not being worked on, place disconnected circuit boards in plastic bags that have been coated or
impregnated with a non-conductive material.
8. Do not handle these devices unnecessarily or remove them from their packages until actually used or tested.
