•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free
workstations.
•
Place containers on a grounded surface before removing the contents.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when
handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer
chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent
resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the
skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on
both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have a HP
authorized reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact your HP
authorized reseller.

UTP Cable Specifications
To connect to the network, the NC7770 Server Adapter uses the following cable for
1000BASE-T transmission.
Category 5 UTP or better
22-26 AWG, 100Ω @ 1MHz
EIA/TIA 568a or EIA/TIA 568b
Using UTP Category 5 Cable in Gigabit Over Copper Installations
For Gigabit over copper installations, Category 5 UTP or better 1000BASE-T cable must
comply with the IEEE 802.3ab 1000BASE-T standard. For new installations, Category 5e
(enhanced Category 5) or better cable is recommended.
RJ-45 Pinouts and Crossover Function
The Ethernet standard also specifies that each segment implement a crossover function to
connect the transmitter of one device to the receiver of a device at the other end, and viceversa. The crossover function may be implemented internally at the hub or switch, or
externally through the twisted-pair media.
10/100 Straight-Through Pinouts
If the crossover function is implemented internally, the port is labeled MDI-X (Medium
Dependent Interface-Crossover). When an MDI-X port is connected to an MDI port, the
twisted pair media should be wired straight-through using the physical pinouts indicated in
Table C-2.
