Site Selection

The following criteria should be considered when selecting a site to install the appliance.

  • Temperature and Ventilation: For proper ventilation, install the appliance where there is ample airflow to the front and back of the appliance. The ambient temperature should not go below 0° or exceed 40°C.
    Important: To prevent the appliance from overheating, do not operate it in an area where the ambient temperature exceeds 40°C (104°F).

    Pour empêcher l’interrupteur de surchauffe, ne pas utiliser il dans une zone où la température ambiante est supérieure à 40°C (104°F).

  • Airflow Orientation: The airflow of the appliance travels from front to back.
  • Rack Space: Install the appliance in a 19" rack or cabinet. The appliance height is 1 RU. The rack mounting kit provides mounting brackets for two-post racks.

When mounting the appliance in a partially filled rack, load the rack from bottom to top, with the heaviest equipment at the bottom. Load the appliance at the bottom if it is the only item in the rack.

  • Other Requirements: Select a site where liquids or objects cannot fall onto the equipment and foreign objects are not drawn into the ventilation holes. Verify these guidelines are met:
    • Clearance areas to the front and rear panels allow for unrestricted cabling.
    • All front and rear panel indicators can be easily read.
    • Power cords can reach from the power outlet to the connector on the rear panel.
      Important: All power connections must be removed to de-energize the unit.

      Toutes les connexions d’alimentation doivent être enlevées pour hors tension l’appareil.

Electrostatic Discharge Precautions

Observe these guidelines to avoid ESD damage when installing or servicing the appliance:
  • Assemble or disassemble equipment only in a static-free work area.
  • Use a conductive work surface (such as an anti-static mat) to dissipate static charge.
  • Wear a conductive wrist strap to dissipate static charge accumulation.
  • Minimize handling of assemblies and components.
  • Keep replacement parts in their original static-free packaging.
  • Remove all plastic, foam, vinyl, paper, and other static-generating materials from the work area.
  • Use tools that do not create ESD.
