Replacing the Air Filter
The Air Filter is hot-swappable that is, the Bezel can be removed and filter can be cleaned or replaced without powering down the SBC chassis.
Perform the following procedure to replace the Air Filter:
- Attach an Electrostatic Discharge wrist strap by using the ESD grounding point on the front panel of the chassis (see Connecting Electrostatic Discharge Wrist Strap on SBC 7000 for details).
- Remove the Bezel assembly (see SBC 7000 Series Bezel).
- Take the Bezel assembly to a work area not in the vicinity of the air intake of the SBC chassis ensuring any loose particles are not drawn into the SBC chassis during the filter removal procedure.
Set Bezel assembly face down on a work surface.
- The Air Filter can be accessed inside the front Bezel.
Un-clip the Air Filter from the Bezel and pull it out.
Once the filter is washed or replaced, insert the Air Filter into the Bezel.
Push down the free sides of the air filter, such that it is attached to the Bezel.
- Reattach the Bezel assembly to the SBC chassis (SBC 7000 Series Bezel).
All SBC 7000 series CRUs are shipped in electrostatic discharge (ESD) bags and must be handled by using appropriate ESD precautions. The storage environment for these CRUs are:
- Humidity must be less than 95% (non-condensing).
- Temperature must be between -40C and +70C.
