Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment. This is to avoid
making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock. Use extreme caution when
using metal tools, which can easily damage any electrical components or circuit boards
they come into contact with.
–
Do not use mats designed to decrease static electrical discharge as protection from
electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically designed as
electrical insulators.
–
The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and must be plugged into
grounded electrical outlets. The unit has more than one power supply cord. Disconnect
both power supply cords before servicing to avoid electrical shock.
–

Rack Installation
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your chassis up and running. Following
these steps in the order given should enable you to have the system operational within a
minimum amount of time.
4.1
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the chassis was shipped in and note if it was damaged in any way.
If the chassis itself shows damage you should file a damage claim with the carrier who
delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold your chassis. It should be situated
in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and
electromagnetic fields are generated. You will also need it placed near a grounded power
outlet. Be sure to read the Rack and System Precautions in the next section.
4.2
Preparing for Setup
The box your chassis was shipped in should include two sets of rail assemblies, two rail
mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need to install the system into the rack.
Note:
Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in
the sections that follow.
4.2.1
Choosing a Setup Location
–
Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front door
completely (approximately 25 inches).
–
Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack to allow for sufficient
airflow and ease in servicing.
–
This product is for installation only in a restricted access location (dedicated equipment
rooms, service closets and the like).
4.2.2
Rack Precautions
–
Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to the floor
with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
–
In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
–
In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
–
Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the rack.
–
You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more simultaneously
may cause the rack to become unstable.
4.2.3
General System Precautions
–
Review the electrical and general safety precautions that came with the components you
are adding to your chassis.
–
Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the rails.
–
Install the heaviest system components on the bottom of the rack first, and then work up.
–
Use a regulating uninterruptable power supply (UPS) to protect the system from power
surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a power failure.
–
Allow the hot plug hard drives and power supply modules to cool before touching them.
–
Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components closed when not
servicing to maintain proper cooling.

Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating temperature of the
rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature of the room. Therefore,
consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with
the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required for safe
operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not arise due to
uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power supply
circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent
protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate
ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself should be
grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the
direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of power strips, etc.).

Inner Rails/Inner Rail Extensions
The chassis includes a set of inner rails which are in two sections:
–
inner rails
–
inner rail extensions.
The inner rails are pre-attached and do not interfere with normal use of the chassis if you
decide not to use a 19-inch rack. Attach the inner rail extension to stabilize the chassis within
the rack.
Installing the Inner Rails
1.
Place the inner rail extensions on the side of the chassis aligning the hooks of the chassis
with the inner rail extension holes. Make sure the inner rail extension faces "outward"
just like the pre-attached inner rail.
2.
4.3.3
Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
3.
Secure the chassis with 2 screws as illustrated.
4.
Repeat steps 1-3 for the other inner rail extension.

Installing the Outer Rails to the Rack
1.
Attach the longer section of the outer rail to the outside of the shorter section of the
outer rail. You must align the pins with the slides. Both ends of the outer rail must face
the same direction in order to be secured to the rack (see also Section Assembling the
Outer Rails).
2.
Adjust both sections of the outer rail to the proper length so that the rail fits snugly
within the rack.
3.
Secure the longer section of the outer rail to the front of the rack with two M5 screws
and the shorter section to the rear side of the rack with two M5 screws.
4.
Repeat steps 1-4 for the remaining outer rail.
Locking Tabs
–
Both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. The first is to lock the
system into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal
position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the system in place when fully extended from the
rack. This prevents the system from coming completely out of the rack when you pull it
out for servicing.
