General Safety Information
The following general safety precautions must be observed during all
phases of operation, service, and repair of this Test Set. Failure to
comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in
this manual violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and
intended use of the Test Set. Agilent Technologies assumes no liability
for the customer’s failure to comply with these requirements.
WARNING
This is a Safety Class I Test Set (provided with a protective
earthing ground, incorporated in the power cord). The mains plug
shall only be inserted in a socket outlet provided with a protective
earth contact. Any interruption of the protective conductor inside
or outside of the Test Set is likely to make the Test Set dangerous.
Intentional interruption is prohibited.
iv
DO NOT operate the product in an explosive atmosphere or in the
presence of flammable gasses or fumes.
DO NOT perform procedures involving cover or shield removal unless
you are qualified to do so: Operating personnel must not remove
equipment covers or shields. Procedures involving the removal of
covers and shields are for use by service- trained personnel only.
DO NOT service or adjust alone: Under certain conditions, dangerous
voltages may exist even with the equipment switched off. To avoid
dangerous electrical shock, service personnel must not attempt internal
service or adjustment unless another person, capable of rendering first
aid and resuscitation, is present.
DO NOT operate damaged equipment: Whenever it is possible that the
safety protection features built into this product have been impaired,
either through physical damage, excessive moisture, or any other
reason, REMOVE POWER and do not use the product until safe
operation can be verified by service- trained personnel. If necessary,
return the product to a Agilent Sales and Service Office for service
and repair to ensure the safety features are maintained.
DO NOT substitute parts or modify equipment: Because of the danger
of introducing additional hazards, do not install substitute parts or
perform any unauthorized modification to the product. Return the
product to an Agilent Sales and Service Office for service and repair
to ensure the safety features are maintained.
CAUTION
Before switching on this Test Set, make sure that the correct fuse is
installed and ensure the power supply voltage si in the specified range.
CAUTION
Mains supply voltage fluctuations should not exceed +/- 10% of the
nominal selected line voltage.
v
WARNING
Appliance coupler (mains input power cord) is the power disconnect
device. Do not position the Test Set such that access to the coupler
is impaired.

The Test Set has two LAN operating modes.
• Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
• Static IP (Manual Mode)
Configuring the Test Set
The IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway, can be changed
manually or remotely.
The IP address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway values are stored
in non- volatile memory and are not part of the save- recall function.
DHCP LAN Connection.
In DHCP mode the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway
values are obtained automatically from the server. Using DHCP does
not require a detailed knowledge of your network configuration. Refer
to “DHCP Mode” on page 35 for further information.
Static IP LAN Connection.
In static mode you must set up the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and
Default Gateway to be compatible with your network infrastructure. To
use Static IP you need to obtain these values from your network
administrator. Refer to “Static IP” on page 38 for further information.
NOTE
USB is recommended for a direct connection between your computer
and the Test Set. Refer to “Connecting by USB” on page 31.

Disconnect Device Requirements
In rack mounting operation a disconnect device, for example, an
IEC320 appliance coupler, must be used. Consideration must be given
to the following when installing the Test Set in a rack:
• An adequately rated switch (250V, 10A) or circuit breaker (250V,
5A) shall be included in the rack.
• It should in close proximity to the Test Set and within easy reach
of the operator.
• It shall be marked as a disconnect device.
Ventilation Requirements
When installing the Test Set in a cabinet, the convection into and out
of the Test Set must not be restricted. If the total power dissipated in
the cabinet is greater than 800 Watts, then forced convection must be
used.
Rack Mounting
Using the Option N4010A- AX4 rack mount kit
1. Remove the carrying handle.
2. Remove the front and rear rubber bumpers.
