Specifically, the site you select should meet the following requirements: - The ambient temperature should be between 32 and 113 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 45 degrees Celsius). - The relative humidity should be less than 90 percent, non-condensing. - Surrounding electrical devices should not exceed the electromagnetic field (RFC) standards for IEC 801-3, Level 2 (3V/M) field strength. - Make sure that the equipment receives adequate ventilation. Do not block the ventilation holes on each side of the switch or on the rear of the equipment. - The power outlet should be within 6 feet (1.8 meters) of the switch. 10 Express Ethernet Switch : LB9017A-R4 Installation and Placement Instructions MOUNTED TO 19-INCH STANDARD RACK Locate the accessories supplied in the product package. Use the rackmount brackets and screws to install the switch into any EIA 19” standard rack. Step 1: Attach the brackets to each side of the chassis. Step 2: Apply the screws to each side and secure them tightly. Step 3: Carefully position the switch into the rack. Step 4: Align the brackets to the side holes on the rack and use rack screws to secure the chassis with the rack. Step 5: Proceed to the “Connecting to Power” section. DESKTOP OR ANY FLAT SURFACE The switch can sit on desktop or any flat surface with adequate space and ventilation. If you want to place it onto a shelf, make sure the shelf can withstand the weight of the switch. Step 1: Simply put the switch on the desired place. Step 2: Ensure the switch receives good ventilation. Step 3: Proceed to the “Connecting to Power” section. 11 Express Ethernet Switch : LB9017A-R4 Optional Fiber Module Installation Consult the following illustrations before installation. Step 1: L Make sure the power is switched off. The module is not hotswappable. It may cause electric shock or any possible damage to the switch if the power is not switched off. Step 2: Remove the module from the static-free container. Step 3: Unscrew the cover plate of the expansion slot. (The slot for single-port module is located at the right side of the switch.) Step 4: Remove the plate. (Keep it for future use if you decide to remove this module later.) Step 5: Carefully slide the module into the slot, following the internal plastic guide rails. Step 6: Once it is fully slid in, snap in the module to make a proper connection. Step 7: Fasten the module screws. Step 8: Finally, turn on the power. Figure 3: Removal of cover plate 12 Fiber module being installed Express Ethernet Switch : LB9017A-R4 Connecting to Power Locate the supplied AC power cord. Step 1: Connect the AC power cord to the receptacle at the back of the switch. Step 2: Attach the plug into a standard AC outlet with a voltage range from 100~240VAC. Step 3: The power LED on the front panel will then illuminate. Connecting to Your Network CABLING Step 1: L First, ensure the power of the switch (and end devices) is turned off. It may cause an electric shock or any possible harm to you if the power is not switched off. Step 2: Prepare cable with corresponding connectors for each type of port in use. (Consult the table below for cabling requirements based on connectors and speed considerations.) Step 3: Connect one end of the cable to the switch and the other end to a desired device. Step 4: Once the connections between two end devices are made successfully, turn on the power and the switch is operational. 13 Express Ethernet Switch : LB9017A-R4 NETWORK SEGMENTATION The maximum segment distance between a node and a directly connected switch port on a 100BaseFX network is 120km using 10/125 (or 9/125) µm single-mode fiber optic cable.
