Installation
An incorrect power setup creates a fire and shock hazard. Do not operate the SKA-3D unless
the power cord, power socket, and power plug meet the appropriate local rating standards.
Have a certified electrician install a permanent single-phase connection from the amplifier to
the AC supply for correct installation. Failure to comply could result in death or serious
injury.
Make sure the SKA-3D is properly ventilated. Provide 1U of space above and below the SKA3D. Make sure that vents are not blocked and that air can flow freely through the unit. Do
not place the SKA-3D directly above or below a heat source such as a power amplifier or
server. If the SKA-3D is not rack-mounted, never place another piece of equipment (or heat
source) on top or below the SKA-3D.
1. Slide the SKA-3D into your rack.
Provide 1U of space above and below the SKA-3D. Do not place the SKA-3D directly above or
below a heat source such as a power amplifier or server. If the SKA-3D is not rack-mounted,
never place another piece of equipment (or heat source) above or below the SKA-3D.
2. Install the SKA-3D rack ears.
3. While holding the SKA-3D in position, insert a screw through each of the rack mounting ears.
4. Tighten the screws to secure the SKA-3D to the rack.
5. Connect one end of the power cord to the AC power inlet and the other end to a power outlet.
6. Connect the output and input connectors.
See Connections on page 6 for connection locations.
